Axalta announced the launch of Montana Big Sky™ Low VOC Basecoat during XPO Vente 2018, the annual NAPA trade show being held at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal on September 5 and 6, 2018.

Montana Big Sky Low VOC Basecoat is a new 3.5 lbs/gal (420 grams/liter) VOC-compliant refinish coating introduced in Canada and available only from NAPA and CMAX stores. The new basecoat is formulated to deliver superior performance, very good coverage, and excellent colour matching capability. The complete product system includes undercoats, colourants, clearcoats, solvents and accessory items to meet a wide variety of automotive refinishing needs.

A full suite of visual and electronic colour tools are available to make color matching quick and easy. A selection of 3,618 color swatches in chromatic sequence provide a visual reference to help choose just the right colour for the job. The Acquire™ RX Spectrophotometer colour measurement instrument is designed to be used directly on a vehicle or part to obtain the correct colour match and then transmit that reading into the user-friendly formula retrieval system.
