ProXL, the leading provider of refinishing and painting products for the automotive and industrial sectors, has expanded its range of XPRESS 2K clear coats to include XPRESS405.

ProXL’s most innovative and cost-effective clear coat yet, XPRESS405 is ideal for bodyshops in search of ProXL’s Anti-Scratch 2K technology; offering unparalleled gloss, ease of use and market leading drying times.

ProXL’s XPRESS clear coat range already enjoys a well established, industry-leading position, highly regarded for its rapid curing times and professional finish straight from the gun. Adding to the already impressive range designed to reduce costs and maximise productivity, XPRESS405 has an exceptionally rapid drying time of just five minutes at 50°C with no gloss drop, making it ProXL’s fastest curing 2K clear coat yet. In addition comes an all-important extended open time, making XPRESS405 a versatile refinishing product for bodyshops seeking a swift turnaround and streamlined inventory.

XPRESS405 offers a high solids (HS) content and benefits from cutting-edge, easy polish anti-scratch technology ensuring similar high quality results as those expected from its bigger brother, XPRESS605 – the ultimate rapid curing clear coat, but at a lower price point, ideal for the majority of small to medium sized businesses.

With a pot life of 60 minutes at 20°C, the prolonged working window prevents the danger of dry edges and allows painters the flexibility they need to ensure precise application on larger surfaces or complex designs, ensuring there is no need to rush.

Charlie Bruce, Technical & NPD, ProXL, said: “XPRESS405 has very similar features and benefits to our VHS XPRESS605 but with a lower solids content; it meets VOC compliance by being scratch resistant. Perfect for entry-level to mid-range bodyshops, XPRESS405 offers unparalleled performance, versatility and affordability without a premium price tag.”

XPRESS405 comes in 1.5- and 7-litre kits. It can be purchased from ProXL stockists – visit to locate your nearest distributor.
