Global coatings company Axalta announced a partnership with Solera, a global player in vehicle lifecycle management, where Axalta’s conventional and Fast Cure Low Energy (FCLE) refinish paint systems will be integrated into Solera’s Sustainable Estimatics platform. Axalta says this new partnership will enable its customers to estimate their CO2 emissions per repair, while considering repair methods, paint application process, and drying conditions.

Axalta Refinish customers will have access to a live dashboard that provides CO2 estimates to help them make energy conscious, data-driven decisions. Customers will also be able to review dashboards to analyze their overall collision repair footprint and benchmark against regional, country specific and industry-wide data.

“We are excited to partner with Solera and introduce a new solution for our customers,” said Troy Weaver, President of Global Refinish at Axalta. “This technology aligns with Axalta’s ongoing commitment to sustainability as we set out to become Carbon Neutral by 2040 and was designed with our customers in mind to help them achieve their sustainability goals. By providing a CO2 emission estimate per repair, body shops can make data-driven decisions to help lower their carbon footprint while also benefiting their bottom line.”
