Cost-Effective OEM Quality: Inside Car-Rep’s 2K Game Changer



Ever wish you could do OEM quality spot repair without the need to mix or activate 2K and waste expensive materials? Dream no longer, Car-Rep’s revolutionary Wise 2K® aerosol paint technology delivers a 2-component smart repair solution requiring no activation or mixing. More importantly, and unlike the traditional 2K systems it offers a revolutionary unlimited pot life. This isn’t just good news for waste reduction; it’s a game changer in expediting your workflow and reducing material costs while achieving OEM quality results.

How Does it Work?

Car-Rep’s patented Wise 2K® technology features a deactivated hardener and the resin packed in the same compartment. The 2K reaction happens when the product is sprayed: first the hardener activates when it meets humidity in the air and second, the components crosslink. With no reaction in the can you can use all the contents without the worry of product waste. Car-Rep’s 2K Smart Repair System feature both epoxy and polyurethane technologies, and create a great opportunity to eliminate 1K aerosols which do not meet OEM performance standards.
