30 May 2012
A new partnership with Kia Europe will see AkzoNobel’s stickerfix™ product offered by dealers throughout the continent as an innovative do-it-yourself vehicle repair solution for minor paint damage, it has been announced.
stickerfix™ is a unique ultra-thin high-tech adhesive film coated with AkzoNobel professional automotive refinish paint, which is cut to size for a near-invisible repair. Available from Kia dealers, the stickerfix™ is color-matched to Kia’s broad palette of vehicle colors and can be applied in less than one minute:
o Clean – make sure the area of application is clean
o Stick – affix the adhesive film to the desired area
o Smooth – gently smooth out the area to give it a shiny new look
“We’re delighted to be supplying stickerfix™ to Kia Europe dealers and are confident their customers will find it the ideal solution to quickly and easily repair minor scuffs and scratches on their vehicles. Kia is the first manufacturer to receive stickerfix™ in the stylish own-branded packaging design, which echoes the design-focused nature of Kia’s products and dealerships,” said Remco Maassen van den Brink, Marketing Manager EMEA, AkzoNobel Automotive & Aerospace Coatings.
“Kia’s striking product range, from the Picanto city car to the Optima sedan and Sportage SUV, has won awards from numerous independent design organisations around the world, so owners will no doubt want to keep their cars looking their best,” comments Uwe Hannes, Vice President Aftersales, Kia Motors Europe.
This latest agreement builds on the existing partnership between the two organizations, which sees AkzoNobel providing paint for all vehicles made in Kia’s European manufacturing facility at Zilina, Slovakia.
