Refinishing Process

The federal government recently announced its Climate Change plan for reducing green house gas emissions. As part of the plan, the government is bringing forward a regulation to reduce the emissions generated by automotive refinish coatings — the ones used by collision repair facilities — by 18 percent by the year 2010. The legislation will take effect January 1, 2010.
At Dalziel's Auto Body we converted our refinish system to comply in June of 2008....18 months ahead of the regulation requirements.

We not only care the quality of work we put into your vehicle, we also care about the environment. That's why we have made the move to Dupont Cromax Pro refinishing system because it helps to protect the environment. Dupont Cromax Pro automotive finish is a waterborne refinish system that significantly reduces VOC ( Volatile Organic Compounds ) chemical vapors. Waterborne products dramatically reduce the amount of solvent and volatile organic compounds that would otherwise evaporate into the atmosphere.

The DuPont Cromax® Pro Waterborne Paint System reduces solvent emissions by 90% compared to solvent based systems. Waterborne basecoats are exceptionally durable. Over 70% of the automotive assembly plants around the world already use this system, therefore, the coatings we apply to the vehicles we repair exactly match the OEM finishes applied at manufacture.

With 1.5 coat coverage and wet on wet application your vehicle's repair/refinsh time can also be significantly reduced, getting you back on the road sooner.


Staff at Dalziel's;
The Quality & Service at Dalziel's Autobody is outstanding. My vehicle went in with almost $5000 worth of damages due to striking an animal. Dalziel's kept me informed throughout the whole process. Once my insurance company gave the go ahead, the repairs were completed in under 5 business days. My vehicle looked like it just came off the showroom floor when I picked it up. I would highly recommend Dalziel's Autobody.
