Onyx HD: Cleaner, Faster and Energy Efficient

Our new Onyx HD paint combines ease of use and durability with superb color matching. It does all of this while complying with today's most stringent volatile organic compounds (VOC) regulations. These low-VOC basecoats are available as both waterborne or solventborne formulas - a unique combination in the marketplace.

The product is easy to spray, offers enhanced de-nibbing, and dries quickly under common humidity and temperature conditions compared to other systems.

"This new system is a truly unique basecoat that offers our customers options they've never had before," said Antonio Leandres, market segment manager for BASF's Automotive Refinish business in North America. "A low VOC solution that dries quickly, saves energy, has excellent hiding capabilities, offers easy application and excellent color matching is something that is hugely beneficial and groundbreaking in the refinish market."

Don't just take our word for it though. Several of our partner collision repair centers have tested the new system and reported significant decreases in drying times, leading to more repairs in less time.

Here is what they said about the product:

  • "Its fabulous stuff to work with," said Cesi Paglia, a paint technician for Provincial Chrysler, Windsor, Ontario, Canada.  "Cars get out of booth sometimes in 50 percent less time."
  • "ONYX™ HD Low VOC workability is quicker and faster," said Tony Castro, owner of ProCollision in Hialeah, Florida. "The jobs are cleaner, and the end result is perfect. Because this product is formulated to mix perfectly with exempt solvents, my shop is VOC-compliant without having to purchase any new or additional water-based spray equipment."
