Around the world, automotive and light truck original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) rely on Axalta to deliver performance and exceptional color palettes. From superior corrosion protection of our electrocoats to lush basecoat colors and protective clear coats, our goal is to create a beautiful finish that will endure under the toughest weather and road conditions. Leading color technology and design expertise is used to create colors that enable OEMs to provide car buyers with vibrant and beautiful choices year after year.
Backing our commitment to innovation, technology and color, we work hand in hand on-site at light vehicle manufacturing facilities to support our coatings systems at every step in the design and manufacturing process. Our Harmonized Coating Technologies™ put it all together with cutting edge application technologies that provide efficiencies in manufacture and, along the way, support sustainability goals with energy and time-saving measures.
Axalta formulations also meet the growing demand for lighter weight vehicles that help save on fuel and reduce vehicle CO2 emissions on the road. Lightweight materials in cars include plastics, composites and carbon fiber, among others. Special formulations ensure coatings can adhere to these novel substrates and cure at lower temperatures to protect non-metal materials, while continuing to provide superior scratch resistance and flexibility. Coatings also are formulated to achieve color harmony and ensure consistent color effects on all surfaces no matter what the underlying material is.
