CROMAX IMPORTER BREAKS RECORD WITH 31 CARS PAINTED IN ONE DAY
Cromax Pro Basecoat and Ultra Performance Energy Clear CC6700 help set new national Norwegian record for most cars painted in a 7.5-hour workday
In August, a team of refinishers from Billakkspesialisten A/S - one of Norway’s largest distributors of car paint and our Norwegian importer - partnered with its customer Sarbsborg Lakkering A/S to attempt a national record for most cars painted in a workday.
A busy day at work
The challenge took place at Sarbsborg Lakkering’s bodyshop, 100km south of Oslo, at 7am and finished at 3pm, with only a 30-minute break for lunch. During the seven and a half hours, Kenneth Skistad, Sarbsborg Lakkering’s co-owner and a trained refinisher, painted and processed an impressive 31 cars through just one spraybooth. And the products used to achieve this feat? He exclusively used none other than Cromax Pro Basecoat and our Ultra Performance Energy Clear CC6700, and High Productive Surfacers 1051R in white and 1057R in black.
Three cars were taken into the spraybooth at a time. And an hour and a half into the challenge, Kenneth had already painted 11 cars, and by lunchtime he had finished an astonishing 19.
Raymond Nikolaysen, Technical Manager for Billakkspesialisten, said, “Our goal was to see how many cars we could paint during a normal workday and we are thrilled we beat the national record. Given how easy it is to use Cromax and how accurate the results are, Cromax Pro Basecoat and the Ultra Performance Energy Clear CC6700 were the obvious choice for the task. This challenge really showed off how productive Cromax is.”
Ove Eidhammer, our Sales Manager in Norway, says, “We are extremely excited to see that we helped our importer tackle such a huge challenge. To paint 31 cars in a single workday is amazing. Many congratulations to Billakkspesialisten and Sarbsborg Lakkering!”
