Why choose AVKO as your paint supplier?
When deciding on your paint and supplier it shouldn’t be just about price, you should consider the following:
- Accuracy of colour
- Quality of product
- Fast through the spray booth
- Delivery times
- Drying time
- Easy to use
- Mixing scheme option (Mix your own paint)
- Technical back up and support
The price can only be measured in conjunction with coverage, this will depend on the quality of the pigments in the product.
Our product is made with the best quality binders and pigments. It is car quality product, which means that it is for external and internal use. It’s had a 10000hr UV test, which is the equivalent to 10 years and most colours were still 4-5 on the grey scale. This means that you do not have to worry about where your customer might use it as it is good for most installations. This could be a problem with a cheaper product as they could use cheaper binders and colorants, which could lead to longer term problems of the colour fading inconsistently. This would depend on the UV it is exposed to or the braking down of the binder leading to delamination or cracking of the surface. These products might be ok for a time but long term they could come back to cause you reputation and financial damage.
Our product is very quick to use, from the mixing to the coverage to the drying times.
The system is a fully pigmented system, unlike most other systems out there, and there are several advantages over a base and tinter system. When mixing light colours it is much easier to mix small amounts as you are putting in larger quantities of pigmented product. With a base and tinter system it is very difficult to mix small quantities of light colours as the amount of tinters become too small to measure accurately on a set of scales, so you end up mixing more product than you need.
The coverage of our products is good and the drying times are quick.
We have been supplying this product now for 20 years and has been around for some 30 years. We know how this product performs under accelerated tests and the test of time, which gives you the security of knowing that it is not going to come back to bite you long term. When colour matching we work to tight tolerances so you are guaranteed to receive the right colour and continuation of colour on large/ongoing jobs.
As you can see from the above there is a lot to think about other than just the cost of a litre of product.
