Automotive Paint and Finishing Solutions

Use temperature and viscosity control technologies to overcome variables and
ensure consistent results in your automotive finishing process.

Gain Control of Your Automotive Painting Process

Automotive finishing is one of the most important steps of auto manufacturing. The paint and clear coat do more than just make the car look good – they serve as protective coatings to shield the vehicle from the elements.

Your finishing process is critical. Fluctuations in paint temperature, booth air temperature, humidity, and countless other variables can lead to bubbles, ripples, thin films, dry spray, craters, or any other of the long list of imperfections that weaken paint and leave vehicles vulnerable to rust and decay.

Industries served:

Since 1990, Saint Clair Systems has focused on providing cost-effective paint temperature control solutions for the automotive industry. Our team can provide an analysis of your painting process and offer suggestions based on hundreds of installations we’ve seen.
