71% of which opt for a repaint for want of a new colour, 26% due car accidents, 21% of which have been enticed by attractive repainting packages and 5% did so to resell their cars.

Nippon Paint is the first coatings company to unveil regional paint and colour offerings catered specifically to the Asian palate in its Trend Beyond Colours initiative. With that, Nippon Paint has developed the Automotive Trend Colour (ATC) 2016/17 which has 39 colours, categorised within three themes – Wander-Lust, New Eco and We Are One.

The Wander-Lust colour schemes projects flamboyance and vibrancy in its bright colours while the New Eco colour schemes takes a more subtle approach with nature-inspired colours for a more elegant and contemporary outlook. The We Are One colour schemes offer a more timeless look with calm and pleasant on the eye colours.

It’s a formula technology that increases the durability of the paint’s coating, enabling it to form a layer of shiny, smooth and durable protective layer of film on the surface of the car. The said formula is applied to three different ranges of coating and each are engineered to provide their respective benefits.
