Rolle, Switzerland. December 1st, 2014 – NEXA AUTOCOLOR® coatings, leaders in automotive refinish brand, is launching new branding to give a fresh new look to its full range of premium products. The brand’s innovative AQUABASE® Plus waterborne line will be the first to benefit from updated product packaging followed by its globally recognised 2K® product line.

Nexa Autocolor brand has pioneered low VOC solutions for the automotive refinish industry, introducing the original Aquabaseproduct more than 20 years ago. Based on its unique heritage, Aquabase Plus line now includes a growing range of integrated tinters, undercoats, clearcoats and ancillaries that work seamlessly together to provide a complete ‘start to finish’ waterborne repair solution. 

The new branding initiative is intended to better reflect the premium quality and market leading position of all Nexa Autocolor coatings, while building on the recognition and strong visual identity of this advanced waterborne repair system. 

The new global visual adopts a refreshed blue ‘plasma’ theme to signify the state-of-the-art technology, performance and colour matching excellence of the Nexa Autocolor brand. All updated livery will feature this vibrant and dynamic image. An additional hue of green on Aquabase Plus waterborne packaging highlights the product line’s environmental friendly credentials, including efficient application processes and substantial material savings.

“We felt that it was time to give a fresh new look to our innovative refinish brand,” says Patricia Phountoucos, EMEA Communications and Branding Manager, automotive refinish. “Painters will now be able to identify their favourite premium brand by this vibrant design, which will be printed on all Nexa Autocolor packaging over the coming months.

 “While our branding and packaging will look different, we haven’t made any changes to the proven technology of our products. So our customers can be confident they will experience the same premium quality and performance as always. And of course they can still count on further innovations from Nexa Autocolor in the future.”
