The accident repair industry has changed noticeably over the years. A modern high-end sports car has nearly 25 to 30% plastic parts. These plastic parts come in various qualities and contain different components (polypropylene, abs, polyethylene, polyurethane, hydrel) depending of their usage. More and more aluminum parts are finding access to the car industry. Some cars have a full aluminum chassis other have integrated aluminum parts to save weight and give more impact strengths in crucial areas.
This is by far not the end. Car manufacturers are developing e.g. carbon fiber, which will be used on major load bearing structural parts and some manufacturers are working on technology, which include robotically woven carbon fiber panels.
With these new elements accident repair became and is becoming more complex and the material know how level of body shop employees had to increase with it. Together with these new technologies the repair methods, equipment, paint and auxiliary products used in body shops are constantly changing.

High volume low-pressure spray guns are helping to keep the paint consumption at the manufacturer specified low level whereby fade out paint technique is assisting to create an invisible paint repair.
The ARM spray booth is equipped to allow an equally distributed high volume air flow, which will not only assist in a fast drying process but also permit modern paint products like High Solids to speed up the repair cycle and reduce paint consumption while being more environmentally friendly.
