Hi all, Sorry to be a bearer of bad news, but i though i better share with you all about the latest EU legislation for next year & wot it will mean for our bike paint colours. Next year the legislation will mean that the solvent basecoat currently used will be illegal & repairers will have to use waterbase basecoat. The problem with this is that it dosn't work the same way as solvent & you cannot get the same affects like 3 stage colours or coloured dyes which make our colours nice & bright, I currently supply many motorbike repair shops & car repair bodyshops in the trade, and this will mean that many bikes will only be repaired by buying painted panels, hiking the costs of repairs considerably. Only at most 70% of existing colours will be able to be formulated in waterbase paint, so if you drop your pride & joy next year, you might have to get all the colour repainted in something as close as, also hiking the cost of repair up.. I have got some solvent made from my company already as a back up, PPG make the green & silver on the tre, you can purchase some through MORELLI GROUP who i work for if anybody needs some.
