Fayetteville’s A-Plus Collision Center announces the transition to innovative water-based refinishing paints using Envirobase High Performance products by PPG. A-Plus joins a select group of automotive repair shops across the country who are committed to operating ecologically-conscious businesses.
Use of waterborne coatings helps improve air quality by reducing the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released into the atmosphere. These paints also have an enhanced ability to match a vehicle’s original finish.
Skip and Angie Samples made the decision to convert to this new technology completely on their own initiative.
“We want to be ahead of the game,” Angie Samples said. “In some parts of the country, air quality regulations are causing repair and collision shops to adopt cleaner, more environmentally-friendly products. We aren’t waiting for the government to tell us what to do. We’re doing the right thing now. ”
“A bonus for us is that the new paint and technology in no way compromises our quality,” Skip Samples, who has worked as an auto-body repairman for 40 years, said. “Every car that leaves this shop has the highest quality finish. We guarantee it.”
The Samples have operated A-Plus Collision, Fayetteville’s premier auto-body repair facility, since 2001. The shop is located at 245 Industrial Way.
