Transportation Coatings

Application Centres

Our customers, from sectors as far apart as industry to automotive, use a huge variety of highly technical paint application processes working with sensitive state of the art equipment and advanced techniques. Our job is to make sure that our paint is compatible with this multitude of application processes and that coaters know how to apply it in the easiest and most efficient way. For that reason, Axalta Coating Systems has two dedicated paint application centres in Europe. These centres train customers in automated paint application, new paint technologies and application processes, and offer additional customer services including defect analyses, customizing of paint systems for our clients and consultancy support. We also carry out on-going research and development work at our centres to ensure our paint is always at the cutting edge of the latest advances in paint technology.
