Genesis HP Topcoat System

May 2, 2012 - Products

Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes

Genesis HP Premium Single-Stage is a two-component urethane topcoat from Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. This new technology provides quicker process times with no baking required; this allows OEMs and fleet repair shops to turn down the heat to increase energy savings and improve production times. With Genesis HP, paint shops can go from prime to finished product up to 65 percent faster and save more than 75 percent on energy costs related to the paint process.

When used with one of Sherwin-Williams Genesis primers, the new Genesis HP Premium Single-Stage Topcoat delivers a premium finish that is out of dust in as little as eight minutes and tape-free within 30 to 40 minutes.  Using Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes’ proprietary Air-Dry Technology, Genesis HP cures in ambient temperatures, at about 70 to 75 degrees. Not only does this elimination of high-heat bake cycles reduce a paint shop’s energy requirements, it also helps meet even the tightest cycle time goals.

Easy to mix and use, Genesis HP provides other benefits including: resistance to chipping in extreme conditions; excellent moisture, chemical, and corrosion resistance; and excellent color and gloss levels. This new topcoat system is VOC compliant and offers a wide selection of the most popular solid colors in the market.

Because of its incredibly fast dry times, Genesis HP is an ideal system for original equipment manufacturers, as well as fleet refinishers. Markets that can benefit from this new finish include utility and service body vehicles, light and medium-duty trailers, equipment and small part manufacturers, as well as the fleet repair and refinish market.
