At Axalta, our customers come first. A key priority in helping them to meet their own sustainability goals, is to ensure that their products last longer and reduce the environmental impact from coating application. Our coatings allow original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of cars and light trucks to protect their vehicles from weather, abrasion, ultraviolet light, and other corrosive elements. Axalta coatings for commercial vehicles not only enable buses, trucks, and trains to display corporate branding, but also withstand wear from rugged conditions. Axalta refinish technologies provide coatings, color matching tools, and training to body shops. Industrial coatings provide substrates with lasting protection and enhanced productivity, from building cladding and vehicle parts to electrical components, and from wood cabinetry and furniture to agricultural, construction, and earth moving equipment.
Product formulations help our customers meet their goals. Waterborne, as well as high- and medium-solids solventborne and liquid paint coatings for use by original equipment manufacturers and in the aftermarket, contain reduced levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Our products meet key air quality goals set by our customers and regulators in the EU, the U.S. and in China. Axalta’s powder coatings contain virtually no VOCs and no targeted hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). These lower emission products continue to offer superb finishes both in terms of durability and appearance. Industrial coatings such as AquaEC electrocoat and Voltatex are available in tin- and formaldehyde-free formulations, respectively.
Coating application systems also enable customers to achieve their goals.
