Standox launches online videos with user tips for passenger car refinishing

Standox, the refinish brand from Wuppertal, Germany, launches a new series of online user videos under the banner Standovision. Paint experts provide valuable and practical tips on the very best use of individual products for professional refinishers.

Knowledge means progress and that's why Standox always prioritises the technical training and the comprehensive consulting of paintshops and bodyshops. With this in mind, Standox has expanded its online offering with expert videos: the existing refinishers’ resource Standopedia is now complemented by online videos under the banner Standovision. The videos are available free of charge on the Standox website and on the Standox YouTube channel.

The aim of the videos is to reach junior staff as well as experienced vehicle painters who, with the help of Standovision, want to achieve even better results in their job or who just want to refresh their knowledge. An experienced paint technician demonstrates the optimum usage of Standox products and economical application techniques. The vehicles painted are real, and there are no effects or embellishments.

"Our expert technicians are highly qualified, give workshops all over the world and are the ones who train the trainers," explains Olaf Adamek, Brand Manager for Standox in Europe, Middle East and Africa. "Our expertise clearly distinguishes us from the many false or incomplete paint tips on that are on the Internet."

The library of videos, which will be added to regularly, are like small training sessions and convey the tips for dealing with Standox products so clearly and practically that refinishers can put them into action immediately.

"We are pleased we can communicate our knowledge and experience via a new communication medium alongside our existing resources, like training courses, repair manuals and Standopedia – our online knowledge platform - and we look forward to our customers' feedback," says Olaf Adamek.

In the first Standovision video, our expert technician demonstrates the perfect application of Standoblue on a complete vehicle side and gives additional best practice advice including application in 1.5 spray passes and for checking blending in areas. The second video shows how mottling can be avoided. The videos are available at Youtube.com/standoxonline.
