For nearly a century, Axalta has honed the technology of developing primers, colorful base coats, and protective clear coats that have styled generations of vehicles.

ChromaDyne™ Color Base Coats
We understand that color affects emotion and can often be a significant factor in choosing a vehicle. For decades, Axalta has developed thousands of ChromaDyne™ base coat products and effects to connect car buyers with color. Whether using Axalta’s paints or other special effect coatings, ChromaDyne™ base coats provide unparalleled durability, color, and beauty.

HyperDyne™ Pre-Coats
Formulated especially for use as part of Axalta’s waterborne and solventborne 3-Wet Harmonized Coating Technology system, HyperDyne™ pre-coats provide the foundation for great appearance and durability. The pre-coat technology is intended to aid wet-on-wet layering and requires only a single curing step that is designed to reduce energy costs and increase line productivity. Application can even eliminate the capital investment for ovens that are required for traditional high-temperature cured primer. Axalta’s 3-Wet system can provide physical properties, such as scratch and mar resistance, and appearance that rival conventional systems.

HyperDur™ Primer
HyperDur™ offers optimized film smoothness and excellent adhesion properties. HyperDur™ products protect substrates and offer chip resistance while providing a smooth surface across multiple materials for either separate base coat plus clear coat systems or single application monocrats.

AquaEC™ E-Coat
AquaEC™ is a sustainable, water-based electrocoat solution that provides a reliable mechanical strength and first layer of superior corrosion protection over a variety of substrates, including hot-rolled steel, cold-rolled steel, galvanized steel, aluminum and magnesium.
