Mazda Introduces Its Latest Technological Advance: Aqua-Tech Paint System

CardinaleWay Mazda Corona, your favorite Corona Dealership, has the scoop on Mazda’s latest technological breakthrough.  It’s an innovative approach to painting its vehicles that positively impacts our environment.  We love to hear about ways that companies find to protect our environment.

Mazda’s New Three-Layer Painting System

Mazda recently announced that it has created a three-layer painting system called Aqua-Tech.  Apparently, this is an entirely new and unique system because it accurately paints vehicles with an entirely robotic painting system.  As you can imagine, this was a major research and development project, requiring countless man hours.  Developing a painting system that was an improvement on its predecessor required a system that worked flawlessly with the goal of reducing waste.  Inside Mazda reports that there were two major objectives achieved with the Aqua-Tech paint system: even application of a uniform thickness of paint and improving the overall efficiency in the actual painting process.  A benefit of the new Aqua-Tech painting system was that the painting process enhanced the paint job, making it appear glossier, while also significantly reducing waste.  That was accomplished since the Aqua-Tech paint system is water-based.  Therefore, it was able to reduce the emission of volatile organic compounds by a whopping 78 percent compared to other competing methods!  Committed to preserving our environment, Mazda has once again proved that it has an environmentally friendly agenda.

Mazda Rolls Out Aqua-Tech

technology_env_other_paint-tech_3rd-row_img.ts.1602150248471570

Japanese auto giant, Mazda, has announced the recent launch of its brand new Aqua-Tech Paint System. The system has been installed at the Changan Mazda Automobile Co., Ltd. (CMA), which is the carmaker’s production center located at Jiangsu, China.

The new technology, which was implemented initially at the No. 1 Ujina Plant in Japan, offers a wide range of advantages. To begin with, it reduces the emissions of VOCs or Volatile Organic Compounds. VOC emissions have been a long time problem for automakers, forcing many of them to switch to water-based paints. However, with the new system in place, Mazda may not have to make that move.

Apart from cutting down on VOC emissions, the Aqua-Tech System also improves efficiency in terms of energy and paint usage.

Even after the initial installation, Mazda continued to improve the system in order to enhance its existing performance capabilities. The system is part of Mazda’s strategy to achieve a higher level of efficiency and quality in its vehicle production methods.

Mazda and CMA worked together to implement the new system in adherence to Japanese standards and to ensure that installation efforts and paint development were kept to a minimum. The transition to the new system was achieved in a short period of time, without interrupting the usage of oil-based paints or current production levels.

Aqua-Tech will be used for painting all the body colors on offer currently. It is believed that the system also provides a higher quality paint finish, similar to what is already being achieved at the Japanese plant.

The unique painting technologies of Mazda can reduce VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) and CO2 emissions that usually occur during the painting process, significantly.

Aqua-tech Painting process

This is one of the world’s most environmentally-friendly paint systems that is automated. It reduces the VOC emissions by 78% compared to Mazda’s previous oil-based paint system. It does not increase the energy consumption as well. The technology behind Aqua-tech painting system can be categorized into two:

  • A new paint for consolidating the process of painting.
  • New technologies to save energy by increasing the paint process efficiency.

Mazda developed two new top coat paints for the Aqua-tech Paint system, a urethane clear coat, and a water-based color basecoat. The properties of these highly functional top coat paints enable Mazda to consolidate the various processes of the coating as well. The entire process results in reduced energy consumption and low VOC and CO2 emissions. These paints are very durable and reliable and provide the necessary gloss and smoothness for the overall look of the car.

Mazda achieved improved energy saving by air-conditioning the paint booth. It helps to control the maximum absorption volume of water vapor constantly. The system achieves this by monitoring the external temperatures and making the required adjustments.

3-Layer Wet Paint process

The system applies all the 3 layers, the primer, the base, and the clear top coat, while still wet, and then just does a single dying process to finish. This process helps Mazda to reduce CO2 emissions by 15% and VOC emissions by 45% compared to the traditional painting process.
