Kent Collision Center uses a state-of-the-art down-draft paint booth with a paint bake feature which allows us to cure the paint faster than traditional air dry paint booths many shops still use. This means we can get you back in your car faster and your paint will be more fully cured providing added protection against chips and scrapes.
At Kent Collision Center we are committed to doing our part to guard our ecological systems, reduce energy consumption and address climate change. As a leader in the automotive industry in Washington we recognize our responsibility to address and minimize the effect we might have on the environment. Kent Collision Center is a leader in pollution prevention. Kent Collision Center continues to find ways to lessen its impact on our environment and has begun the use of Akzo Nobel, waterborne basecoat that has superior color match on newer vehicles to solvent based paints without high VOCS.
For a shop that mixes an average of 1 gallon of solvent-borne paint per week, changing to a water-borne paint annually saves over 300 LBS of VOCS from being emitted into the air we breathe. This is the equivalent to taking more than 1,000 vehicles off the road annually!
