RSB-R-M’s waterborne paints are environmentally friendly

Cleaner for the Environment

The R-M waterborne paints are a source of fewer toxins going into the environment. There are higher levels of toxins in the air long after the painting is completed when using solvent-based paint. Waterborne coatings are a non-flammable, non-toxic and non-hazardous way to paint. This is the perfect option when looking for a paint coating that meets with the clean air regulations. Furthermore, waterborne paints offer an 80% reduction in solvent emissions when compared to conventional automotive refinish paint technology.

Healthier for your Staff

In addition to waterborne paints being clearner for the environment, waterborne paint reduces the emission of VOCs, improves air quality and reducing the health risk to all involved.

Durable and Long-Lasting

R-M Waterborne paints are highly durable and abrasion-resistant. These coatings hold up well to heat and can ward off corrosion. When working in harsh working environments, using waterborne paint is going to maintain its glossy finish and protect your vehicles for longer.

High-Gloss Finish

One of the beauties with R-M waterborne paint is that you use less gloss coating. The paint itself provides a high gloss finish and also doubles as an excellent corrosion protector.
