Sonne introduces an accelerated thinner to range

Date: 24-Feb-2017

HELLA’s paint brand, Sonne®, the ideal ‘free to choose’ solution in the refinish market and a flexible alternative for distributors and bodyshops, is now boosted further by the introduction of an accelerated thinner for clearcoat, which saves time, costs and dramatically increases bodyshop productivity. 

With the brand’s Hidrosonne Evo range amounting to more than 70,000 colours, bodyshops currently enjoy market leading colour availability and reproduction, excellent coverage, and the highest quality finish. With the introduction of the accelerated thinner into the product range, bodyshops will further benefit from the clearcoat curing in only 10 minutes at 60°c and an easy to polish solution with excellent gloss retention. In addition, the thinner reduces energy costs, cuts product usage and increases productivity, due to the time saving properties it brings to the entire process.

Commenting on this new product was head of HELLA’s paint division, Paul Tredgold: “Since its launch in June 2016, Sonne has surpassed our target expectations in the UK, quickly establishing itself as a popular brand and I’m excited we are able to add this new product to the Sonne range. The accelerated thinner offers so many time and cost saving benefits it is a “must have” product for all.”
