R-M innovation - relax and enjoy significantly improved performance

R-M does not innovate at the expense of your working practices and standard processes. The high density technology employed in ONYX HD is based on R-M’s world leading experience in waterborne technology and is well proven in the field since 1995 as it requires no changes to your usual processes. You can use your current spray booth, mixing machine and compliant spray gun technology. R-M provides solutions that respect the latest developments in automotive refinish technology and ONYX HD works perfectly with the new generation Colormaster color tool.
ONYX HD is also compatible with CRYSTAL BASE and SPECIAL CRYSTAL BASE, two ranges of special effect tinting bases.

80% less solvent emissions

ONYX HD offers an 80% reduction in solvent emissions when compared to conventional automotive refinish paint technology. The solvent content of ONYX HD, mixed ready for use is around 150 grams per litre..

Up to 90% less waste

ONYX HD makes waste management easy, with no change to your normal working practices. Cleaning spray guns is simple using an automatic gun cleaner, which treats water by flocculation through the use of Hydropure. This easy to use system can reduce waste volume by up to 90%.

Faster drying times

Speed of drying is essential to optimize throughput and R-M has specified Dry Jet as the perfect system to speed drying of ONYX HD. Dry Jet is a drying system for panel repair which again uses a standard compressed air connection.

The perfect finish

ONYX HD offers the very highest quality finish thanks to the renowned CHRONOLUX CP and CRYSTALCLEAR CP clearcoats, which perform brilliantly with waterborne basecoat.

VOC legislation

ONYX HD complies with the demands of Europe's stringent VOC emissions regulations [< 420 g/l] and combines the environmental benefits of a waterborne system with the simplicity of preparation, application and storage of a conventional system.

CRYSTAL BASES and
SPECIALCRYSTAL BASES :
A high-tech solution by R-M

Matching special effect colors has never been so easy

Today bodyshops are expected to match an increasing number of special effect colors. CRYSTAL BASE from R-M, these concentrated bases have been developed exclusively for special effect pigments and packaged in 125 ml bottles.

The CRYSTAL BASES advantages make the difference

- No stirring is necessary, so the mixing machine will not be tied up.
- 125 ml bottles are specially designed for use with special effect pigments.
- A special dispensing cap easier usage and accurate dosage.
- Minimum investment provides a complete set of pigments for special 
  effects.
- The CRYSTAL BASE range has a practical storage chest. The bottles are 
  arranged "upside-down" which makes them easier to work with and
  enables you to use them "down to the last drop".

Innovate without changing your working processes

CRYSTAL BASE is perfectly compatible with the two R-M basecoat systems DIAMONT and ONYX HD. Just like a conventional base, CRYSTAL BASE is treated simply as a component in the formula for special effect colors.

SPECIAL CRYSTAL BASES : an answer to very specific requirements

These new bases can also be used to repair a number of special pigment-base colors used by car manufacturers, therefore very specific requirements can be met easily.

The SPECIAL CRYSTAL BASES can be used to mix CARIZZMA SPECIAL CRYSTALS and EXTREME COLORS.

Time saving, energy saving and streamlining

You need to be cost effective and with the increasing demands of insurance companies to reduce repair costs, EXTRASEALER reduces process times still further through SpeedArt, eliminating time consuming sanding during pretreatment and prior to topcoat application: Using EXTRASEALER, the SpeedArt process makes it possible to eliminate sanding. Further significant topcoat savings can be made through the use of the greyshade guide, optimizing the efficiency of the topcoat, reducing process time and material consumption.

Your bodyshop will profit from two hardeners

D80 is the preferred harderner for large areas which ensures drying in 15 minutes at 20°C bringing your bodyshop the fastest possible throughput. D70 fast hardener is preferred for cold temperatures.
