James Wood (Automotive Refinishers) Ltd's workshop is equipped with the latest facilities including Jun-Air spray booth ovens which employ high quality Spies-Hecker automotive waterborne paints, which are not only environmentally friendly, but provide a superb standard of finish. We use Cure-Rite Ultra Violet Paint curing systems, and Max Meyer automotive paints are also available.
All paint work is performed within a completely dust-free environment and the paint curing process takes place within the workshop's Jun-Air spray booth ovens using Cure-Rite ultra-violet light systems, which minimise the curing time to just five minutes. These spray booth ovens are large enough to accommodate long-wheelbase, high-top vans such as the largest versions of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.
