SOULFISHER COLLISION AND REPAIR CONVERTS TO WATERBORNE

Employees of Soulfisher Collision and Repair can breath easier these days. The auto body shop at Soulfisher Collision and Repair has completed a transition from PPG's solvent based Deltron paint line to PPG's Envirobase High Performance waterborne basecoat paint line. The main objective of the conversion was to reduce the harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that were a substantial component of solvent-based systems. Mark Norton noted that “by switching to Envirobase, we plan on reducing VOC emissions by 70%, this reduction of VOCs is the responsible action for auto body shop owners to take to protect the long-term health of their employees.”

Soulfisher Collision and Repair applied for a VOC Reduction grant from the Minnesota Pollution Contral Agency (MPCA) in 2016. “We were disappointed when we received notice that our project was viable, but funds had ran out.” said Mark. That disappointment turned to delight when the MPCA contacted Mark several months later to let him know that additional funds had come available and he could proceed. “Working with the MPCA to meet our common goal of a healthier environment was very easy. Their grant was a great help in getting this project underway.” Migrating the shop to waterborne paint system has been an objective of Mark's since he acquired the auto body shop in 2011. Mark commented “Along with the grant of the MPCA, Single Source, and PPG provided training, expertise and assistance to make this possible. We appreciate the support of our vendors.”

Conversion was straight forward with no down time in the shop. Single Source delivered the materials ahead of time. On the morning of conversion the shop's painter, Jeremy White, mixed the final solvent paints necessary for the morning's jobs. While Jeremy was in the booth spraying, Single Source and PPG got busy removing the old toners and mix bank and replaced it with the new Envirobase system. By noon, they were up and operational on the new paint system.

Customers of Soulfisher Collision and Repair will also benefit from the new system as the PPG Envirobase High Performance basecoat provide excellent color matching and long term performance of the low-VOC clearcoat.

AC Evaporator Cleaning: $49.95 (Save $20).
On these hot days, we all our thankful for a working A/C system in our cars. What we don't think about is the mold, bacteria and other contaminants that may be in the system. The picture is of two swabs of the vent system on a 2014 Ford Focus. The first before treatment and the second is after treatment. The difference in the samples are obvious. Call and set up an appointment today. 507-263-5160.
