Serious Color. Smart Business.
The new
breed of
paint company.
In today’s business environment, there’s no room
for waste. Pro-Spray® understands this new rule of
business because we’ve been abiding by it all along.
We’re lean. Agile. Driven. And customer-focused.
We’ve always believed that quality, technology and
performance shouldn’t break the bank.
It All Began With You In Mind
Nearly two decades ago, Pro-Spray started in
England as an ideal – the result of the industry’s
elite minds coming together and asking, “If we
could create the perfect paint line, what would
it look like?” The answer was Pro-Spray, a new
breed of paint company focused on one goal:
to deliver the very best automotive refinishing
systems, with precise color match and highperformance products and tools, at an amazing value.
Global Synergy
As an international company, with manufacturing
facilities in England and the United States that
service over 20 countries and growing, Pro-Spray
has a global presence with access to the world’s
best technologies, innovations and raw materials.
What does this mean to you? Breakthrough

We Stress Over Quality

To provide you with the industry’s finest
waterborne and solvent borne formulations,
Pro-Spray puts advanced processes to work.
State-of-the art laboratories, production facilities
and technical training centers ensure that you
get the absolute highest quality every time you
buy our brand. In fact, our U.S. headquarters has
earned ISO 9001:2008 certification for its quality
management system.
Intuitive Innovation
Intuitive innovation; it’s what drives us. It’s
why we reinvest millions into future coatings
technologies, ground-breaking color tools, like
the Navigator™ precision color selection system
and PaintXpert™ coatings management software,
and cutting-edge facilities. Facilities such as
our revolutionary U.S. paint production plant,
U.S. Technical & Training Center and new
European headquarters.

Pro-Spray has it all. Surface prep and specialty
products. Primers and clears. Waterborne and
solvent borne systems. All tied together with
our universal 2K thinners and activators, this
intelligent system can meet the demands of
your shop no matter what the VOC requirement,
capacity or condition.
Less Inventory, More Savings
Universal 2K Activators & Thinners
When considering a refinishing system, it’s
essential to understand how it works. Pro-Spray
is simple. Universal 2K activators and thinners
are integrated to handle any job, regardless
of size, climate and product. So all your 2K
primers, sealers, colors and clears use the
same activators and thinners. The bottom
line? Less SKUs, less confusion, less hassle,
less cost…and all the flexibility you need.
We Start the Same Place You Do
Primers & Sealers
Pro-Spray understands that a solid foundation
is critical to any repair. So we offer a broad
spectrum of primers to meet virtually any need,
vehicle surface and VOC requirement.
Pro-Spray etching fillers and epoxy primers
deliver long-lasting, ultimate protection and
adhesion to safeguard bare metal. Our 2K
primers provide high-build, easy-sanding
gray-scale technologies that speed up coverage
and deliver a smooth finish with great color
holdout. And our wet-on-wet sealers give
maximum intercoat adhesion for a smooth,
uniform paint surface under waterborne or
solvent borne topcoats.
Better Than Beautiful
Excellent flow. Brilliant gloss. Long-lasting
durability. That’s what you get with Pro-Spray’s
complete offering of clearcoats. Whether it’s a
high production spot & panel you need to buff
in 30 minutes or a glamour clear for the deepest
of shine, rest assured that our premium resin
clearcoats will keep your finishes looking better
than beautiful. What’s more, with a wide array
of activators and thinner speeds, you can meet
any range of spraying conditions – cross draft
to down draft, hot to cool, small fixes to large
repairs. Pro-Spray’s clears produce a shine and
finish that truly impress even the harshest of critics.
Color that
gets it right.
The first time.
Color is the first – and sometimes the only –
thing that customers notice. And, it’s fairly simple.
Color either matches or it doesn’t. That’s why, to
make the invisible repair, you need a product from
a company you can rely on. That’s why you need
Pro-Spray. We’ve built our reputation on precise
color match.
Whether low VOC or National Rule, water or
solvent, Pro-Spray has a premium solution that
offers outstanding color coupled with a fully
integrated system. Color that delivers accurate
matches with exceptional hiding power to
complete any repair to the high standards
you expect.
The Workhorse
The workhorse of any paint shop is its
dependable intermix system. And Pro-Spray
is proud to offer two: a high-performing
solvent option and an eco-friendly
waterborne alternative.
Solvent – Versatile and Complete
We raised the bar with the Pro-Spray solvent
intermix system. Say “goodbye” to messy, clumpy,
dry–powder pearls and “hello” to a streamlined,
all-liquid toner system consisting of solid, metallic,
pearl and special-effect toners. Toners that are
combined with specialized binders to deliver
single-stage, basecoat, 2- & 3-stage basecoat,
3.5 VOC basecoat, engine bay and interior colors.
Best of all, with Pro-Spray you can mix National
Rule basecoats in high, medium and normal solids
to meet your specific needs. If you’re looking for
high production with quick coverage and optimal
performance, utilize our high solids formula. When
cost and time aren’t as critical, take advantage of
our medium or normal solids formula. All without
sacrificing an ounce of color quality.
Waterborne – Flexible and Earth Friendly
Whether you’re looking for the ultimate in
eco-friendly coatings and/or need to meet
the most stringent VOC limits, the Pro-Spray
H2O waterborne system offers a total color
palette for any basecoat and 3-stage color
repair. This quick-covering, fast-drying
waterborne system allows you the widest range
of OEM solid, metallic, pearl and special effect
colors available. Combined with our unique
“shake and pour” technology that eliminates
the need for expensive mixing equipment,
Pro-Spray H2O gives you the quality
color you need with the cost
effectiveness you want.
“One day, I couldn’t get a match (with our current paint
brand) on a Lexus , so I called the Pro-Spray jobber...
and without tinting or mixing, we hit it right the first time.”

“Navigator™ works like a
charm! Way better than
the competition!”
