Autolac Launches Finixa Green Paint System In Australia

Finixa has introduced a new Green Paint System that uses an ultra-thin PET (polyethylene terephthalate) liner, which the company says requires 40 to 50 per cent less plastic to manufacture compared to the average liner produced by competitors.

“When analysing a European market of a tremendous 150 million produced systems, this is a significant amount of plastic prevented from being used and wasted,” said Finixa.

According to Finixa, PET ensures minimal friction with paint, is more chemical resistant than LDPE (low-density polyethylene) and collapses faster than LDPE. Thanks to these benefits, the unique PET liner leaves less paint residue and reduces the weight of plastic waste.

“The combination of minimal friction and collapsing speed of the liner results in less overall paint waste, meaning less liquid material wastage on your bottom line,” said Finixa. “On average you will save between 30 to 80 grams of paint waste per application, with most brands leaving about 50 grams of paint in the liner that can’t be sprayed out.”

Developed in-house and patented in Belgium, the PET liner is highly transparent for accurate mixing while the reusable outer cup features Finixa’s 10 different mixing ratios and optimised height-width dimensions for more accurate measuring.

The system also features a lightweight lid with integrated strainer and a set of closing caps to store leftover paint easily and cleanly, further ensuring no paint material is wasted. Finixa says the GPS system manages 20 per cent more paint flow than competitors, meaning a saving of up to 20 per cent on annual material costs.

“Today, the automotive industry is still seen as a high pollution sector. Step by step, Finixa are working to compensate and improve this statistic wherever possible. To this end, Finixa are bringing new, real ecological innovations, such as the renewed Green Paint System,” said Finixa.
