Stockertown, Pennsylvania — May 31, 2017 — U-POL has just introduced the company’s new Rapid System line of advanced body repair products which it says were engineered to significantly reduce cycle times. The line includes Rapid System Body Filler, Glaze, Primer and Clearcoat. According to U-POL, Rapid System products can be used individually or as a system to improve bodyshop efficiency throughout the entire repair process.
According to the company, the U-POL Rapid System increases productivity by reducing cycle times and lowering energy costs. Based on an average spray booth running cost for topcoat jobs, U-POL says Rapid System increases productivity by as much as 40 percent. Force drying with Rapid System Clearcoat reduces the time to buff by an average of 80 minutes per job compared to conventional clearcoats.
U-POL Rapid Cure Technology allows Rapid System Body Filler to cure in just 10 minutes, according to the company. Rapid System Glaze is a lightweight finishing glaze formulated to repair surface scratches and small imperfections. It features U-POL’s Rapid Cure Technology to allow curing in six to eight minutes.
The company says its Rapid System Primer cures in a fraction of the time of conventional primers and that it’s ready to sand in less than one hour and features excellent hiding capabilities for a high quality uniform foundation prior to colour coating.
Rapid System Clearcoat is a high performance clearcoat that the company says delivers an exceptional high gloss, ‘just buffed’ finish. It is easy to apply and cures in 10 minutes at 140°F metal temperature to reduce cycle time and increase productivity. It can be cured through air dry, oven bake or IR.
Rapid System Clearcoat and Primer Hardeners can be used in all climates and conditions, which helps reduce inventory investment. For more information, please visit u-pol.com.
