This prestigious event sees the best of the best pit their talents against each other to claim the title of the best in their field.
Putting Auto Refinishing Skills to the Test!
The Junair Spraybooths SmartAir featured as part of the automotive refinishing skills competition. The competitors used the SmartAir to show off their skills, knowledge and talents as auto refinishers, competing against each other for gold in Auto Refinishing.
The Auto refinishers were given multiple panels, with a combination of paint types, a solid colour, a metallic colour and a pearl colour. The competitors were required to repair 2 scratches, one in the pearl colour and one in metallic. They were also asked to spray a design on the solid coloured panel. The judges were inspecting several aspects of the finish including appearance, thickness of paint, any contaminants within the paint finish, colour match.
A panel of judges scrutinised the competitors’ work and at the end of the 3 day long show a winner was announced. Congratulations to Adam Litchfield the 2015 Auto Refinishing winner!
About Junair SmartAir
The SmartAir is a mobile painting system that, as its name suggests, is ideal for SMART repairs without the use of a conventional spraybooth. Repairs can be primed quickly without the use of vehicle movement or full masking. The unique hood and masking design means that the masking can be easily folded over creating an enclosure. Once activated the extraction system funnels air into the open aperture of the SmartAir creating airflow into the hood, capturing and dispersing overspray and fumes. The SmartAir allows smaller jobs to be diverted away from the spraybooth, increasing productivity and freeing up the spraybooths for larger more profitable jobs.
The SmartAir has a 2 stage filtration system, meeting emissions regulations and is compliant with relevant health and safety directives, making it a safe and productive addition to any bodyshop.
