R-M innovation – relax and enjoy significantly improved performance.
R-M does not innovate at the expense of your working practices and standard processes. The high-density technology employed in ONYX HD is based on R-M’s world-leading experience in waterborne technology and is well proven in the field since 1995 as it requires no changes to your usual processes. You can use your current spray booth, mixing machine and compliant spray gun technology. R-M provides solutions that respect the latest developments in automotive refinishing technology and ONYX HD works perfectly with the new generation colour master colour tool.
ONYX HD is also compatible with CRYSTAL BASE and SPECIAL CRYSTAL BASE, two ranges of special effect tinting bases.
80% less solvent emissions
ONYX HD offers an 80% reduction in solvent emissions when compared to conventional automotive refinish paint technology. The solvent content of ONYX HD, mixed and ready for use is around 150 grams per litre.
Up to 90% less waste
ONYX HD makes waste management easy, with no change to your normal working practices. Cleaning spray guns is simple by using an automatic gun cleaner, which treats water by flocculation through the use of Hydropure. This easy-to-use system can reduce waste volume by up to 90%.
Faster drying times
Speed of drying is essential to optimize throughput and R-M has specified Dry Jet as the perfect system to speed the drying of ONYX HD. Dry Jet is a drying system for panel repair which again uses a standard compressed air connection.
The perfect finish
ONYX HD offers the very highest quality finish thanks to the renowned CHRONOLUX CP and CRYSTALCLEAR CP clearcoats, which perform brilliantly with waterborne basecoat.
ONYX HD complies with the demands of Europe’s stringent VOC emissions regulations [< 420 g/l] and combines the environmental benefits of a waterborne system with the simplicity of preparation, application and storage of a conventional system.
