Fans of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) components love the look of the characteristic weave. The new Permafleet® Industry Carbon Fiber Sealer 5605 from Spies Hecker gives industrial objects, accessories and parts made of CFRP a smooth surface that highlights the typical carbon fibre look.
Most bodyshops are familiar with the challenge: painting carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) components such as side sills or rear spoilers while maintaining the visual appearance of the carbon fibre’s characteristic weave pattern. Spies Hecker’s solution is the new Permafleet® Industry Carbon Fibre Sealer 5605 from Spies Hecker. The transparent polyurethane sealer preserves the carbon fibre’s woven pattern despite its good filling properties. For optimal UV protection, a subsequent clear coat layer is recommended, and all Spies Hecker clear coats are compatible with the new sealer.
Simple, material-saving process
Permafleet Industry Carbon Fibre Sealer 5605 delivers bodyshops economic benefits, too. Evgeny Khmelev, Spies Hecker Training Leader EMEA, says: "The sealer is particularly easy to apply, and quick and easy to process. It helps refinish professionals complete their everyday painting jobs faster." The sealer can be applied in two spray coats with short intermediate flash-off times. Permafleet Industry Carbon Fibre Sealer 5605 hardens after only 30 to 45 minutes drying time at 50oC to 60oC.
