Los Angeles Mobile Plastic Bumper Repair-ECO Friendly

SOS Bumper goes water borne for mobile plastic bumper repair in Los Angeles. This now environmental friendly paint system will help contribute support for the global warming awareness. Here’s is the rest of the story from another sister blog

Los Angeles – SOS Bumper is the first to set the trend for mobile waterborne paint repair. The word on the streets is all body shops and mobile bumper and paint techs will have to be compliant between 2009-2010.

SOS Bumper, which is actually a sub division of SOS Dent in Los Angeles, already purchased the Glasurit waterborne paint system.
David (Owner of SOS Bumper and Dent) says, “It’s been a real pain in the butt setting up the van because this is new territory for us.” He also mentions, “Most reps didn’t really know about the full reactions about the paint and the pros and con’s.” The pros, it lays on nicely and pretty much everything is the same. But.. the in between time for drying is not so great. For most body shops, it’s not such a big deal. The difference with waterborne and oil base paint is the dry time and the methods. Oil base uses lights, heat and UV lights to cure the paint. Waterborne uses forced air.

The problem with forced air is it might blow dust onto the fresh paint and trap debris if not in a controlled environment. “It’ll be a little challenging but we are eager to see how its going to be”, says David.

Waterborne paint seems to be the future. As a mobile auto reconditioning owner myself, in my opinion, I believe the auto paint industry will have later updates with new technology just for these reasons. Besides, they have a soon to be huge mobile market to cater to!
