SRC-paint for winter

SRC-paint for winter

The ALCAR Group has launched a new technology for their companies DOTZ, AEZ and DEZENT. Thanks to the new paint the wheels can be driven in both summer and winter, without any problems. We are talking about the SRC-paint, which strengthens the "natural defenses" of the wheel. 

SRC means "Salt & Sun Resistant" while the letter C refers to the sealing layer (coating) - primer layer, paint layer, top layer or sealing layer. The ultra-hard 3-layer finish ensures perfect protection, especially for the cold season. The clear lacquers serve as a transparent seal and first barrier against environmental impacts.  


Visual checks and layer thickness measurements are carried out on each wheel in order to check and ensure the necessary SRC quality standards.

Thanks to the innovative SRC-paint all polished wheels from the ALCAR Group are protected against salt, intense sun and small scratches. Thereby the wheel still looks great even after many years. Bringing the paint quality to a top level of the OE-standard is fully achieved with the SRC-paint.
