Refinish products and process tools help deliver exceptional results.

At this year’s SEMA360 virtual expo, AkzoNobel took the opportunity to showcase the AkzoNobel Advantage through a selection of videos and virtual content.

Given that hot rods and custom cars are such a huge part of SEMA, it was only natural that AkzoNobel took the opportunity to highlight Modern Classikk line of refinish products.

As car guys and gals, we often see huge potential in that rusty heap in the junkyard or parked behind the shed. So does Dave Kindig of Kindig-It-Design. Many viewers tune into the TV show Bitchin’ Rides, to see Kindig and his team turn forlorn automobiles into rolling works of art and the Modern Classikk video illustrates the point, with Kindig sampling various vehicles in a junkyard before seeing a vision of a transformed 1956 Corvette and 1967 Pontiac GTO. On classics, restomods and every vehicle come to think of it, attention is in the details, and Modern Classikk finishes are designed, as Kindig says in the video, “to turn your vision into reality.”

Another highlight was AkzoNobel’s Carbeat, its digital process solution designed to help collision repair shops improve both communication and production efficiency. With real world testimonials from collision centres who have adopted Carbeat, the end result is a system that’s adaptable to each individual shop and provides detailed reporting that enables technicians and shop managers to interact with and track every aspect of the collision repair process, improving efficiency, reducing cycle time and delivering better results and profitability.
