Water Based Paint

Willis Collision Center was one of the first in the area to pioneer water based paint for vehicles. The reason behind this is because we care about our people and we care about our environment. Many of the traditional paints used in auto refinishing are bad for both the people applying it and the environment. This is why when Axalta (DuPont), a leader in science and innovation, came out with a safer, cleaner, and better system, we were the first to invest in it. We choose to use Spies Hecker Products in our facility. Axalta provides us with a lifetime warranty against any failure that can possibly occur.

This particular product is also what is used on almost all new cars coming in from the factory. Those companies use it for the same reason our Des Moines shop does. It’s safer, cleaner, and better for your car and the environment. We’re proud to be an innovator and leader in the industry all while keeping the environment clean and safe.
