Producing a high quality finish quickly and economically is now more important than ever for bodyshops and a fast increasing number of Irish repairers have discovered that this can be achieved with the help of the UV-System from Mipa Paints, which is distributed in Ireland by Autopaint Supplies.
Mipa offers a simple to use, yet wide ranging, UV system that allows bodyshops to save precious working time, boost their workflow and produce exceptional finish quality. By using UV drying bodyshops can also significantly cut their energy outlay through not having to heat a spray booth or infra red dryer.
The Mipa UV range includes 1K-UV-Klarlack, an innovative clearcoat that can be dried with all common UV lamps, with only 5 minutes curing in all bodyshop conditions. This allows fast and efficient finishes to be achieved without excess energy costs.
Mipa 1K-UV-Füller is a fast drying high quality filler that also offers a 5 minute UV curing time. It has very good adhesion to steel, iron, aluminium and galvanized substrates and can provide a significant boost to cycle times by offering easy out of booth preparation. For convenience this is available for spray guns and as an aerosol spray.
Also available is Mipa 1K-UV-Spachtel, a high quality UV-drying 1K finishing putty which is perfect for spot and smart repair. It offers excellent adhesion to the most metal and plastic surfaces. It is easy to sand and comes in a practical cartridge for direct application to repair areas
To complement these products Mirka also offers two portable UV lamps. The smaller MP UV Lampe Compact operates on a rechargeable Lithium ion battery and has an integrated magnet for optimum placement. Meanwhile the MP UV-LED Lampe MAX is designed to be strong and robust enough for the toughest workshop environment and is also battery operated and has a built in magnet.
Ciaran Fox from Autopaint Supplies comments, “The Mipa UV system has the potential to make a big difference in any bodyshop. The products are easy to use, economical and very fast drying. They allow repairers to produce a quality finish and save on energy costs.”
