Environmentally Friendly Painting

Network Auto Body is committed to providing you, the customer, with top-quality repairs and refinishing services. We also want to be certain the planet remains habitable for generations to come! To this end, we do our utmost to ensure that all our services are as eco-friendly as possible.

From the equipment we use to the paint on your vehicle to the detailing process itself, we’ve gone green!

Our Eco-Friendly Paint

There are two types of paint used in vehicle repair:

  1. Solvent-borne — This type of paint is made using petrochemical products, particularly the solvent used to thin the paint. These solvents release harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds) into the atmosphere during the paint application process.
  2. Water-borne — Water-borne paints do not use the petrochemical-based solvents to thin the paint, but are water-based and thus less toxic to the environment. They are no less effective, however, and provide equal protection and performance.

At Network Auto Body, we ONLY use a water-borne paint system. This helps us to reduce our emissions and keeps us as “green” as possible.

Our Eco-Friendly Services

We don’t just use the best eco-friendly paint around (manufactured by PPG), but we are also committed to reducing the carbon footprint of our body repair shops.

All of the paint is applied in our specially-designed downdraft spray booths. These booths:

  • Are fully filtered to trap VOC’s from entering the environment
  • Offer HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure) spray guns to reduce VOC’s
  • Use a high-efficiency curing system (to speed up drying time with less energy use)

Thanks to our state-of-the-art equipment, you can have your car repaired without increasing your carbon footprint.

If you’re looking for a “green” auto body shop, come to Network Auto Body. We are committed to protecting our planet as much as possible, and we do whatever we can to reduce our emissions! Bring your car, SUV, or truck down to our conveniently located facilities, and see how we can help you get your vehicle back into pristine condition with as little environmental impact as possible.
