Previewing SEMA Show 2017: Product demos, new product releases, giveaways and a grand prize trip

Fall is always a busy trade show season for Global Finishing Solutions® (GFS), with our biggest shows being SEMA Show for the automotive refinish market and FABTECH for the industrial market.

The world’s premier automotive specialty products trade event, SEMA Show is the place to be if you are a collision shop owner, manager or employee. Held in Las Vegas, Nevada from Oct. 31 through Nov. 3 this year, SEMA is an action-packed event. GFS will not disappoint with our lineup of product demos, new product releases and giveaways, including a grand prize trip to the GFS Center for Excellence training facility. You can find GFS at booth #11229, and make sure to use the hashtag #GFSatSEMA to join the conversation.

Experience the Innovative REVO Accelerated Curing Systems

Short wave infrared (IR) curing is revolutionizing the collision repair industry, as it dramatically reduces curing times and improves paint finish quality. GFS’ REVO Accelerated Curing Systems can increase paint shop throughput up to 80 percent, all while working within your shop’s current footprint. REVO Systems use short wave IR to quickly and completely cure filler and coatings from the inside out.

To see how this technology works and to talk to one of our technical advisors, stop by the GFS Booth (#11229) for a REVO demonstration during one of these times:

REVO Demo Schedule

Tuesday (10/31): 2-2:30 p.m.

Wednesday (11/1): 10:30-11 a.m. & 2-2:30 p.m.

Thursday (11/2): 10:30-11 a.m. & 2-2:30 p.m.

Win a Trip for Two to the Center for Excellence

Everyone who attends a REVO demo and has their badge scanned will be entered into a drawing to win an all-inclusive, three-day trip for two to the GFS Center for Excellence. This new, impressive facility is located at our headquarters in Osseo, Wisconsin, and features a state-of-the-art training and product R&D center. The training facility was meticulously designed with full preparation and paint areas to closely resemble a working body shop. The facility includes fully operational GFS paint booths, prep booths, Paint Mix Rooms and REVO Systems.

The three-day trip will include custom-tailored training by our experienced technical advisors on GFS paint booths, REVO Systems and paint shop best practices to increase productivity and throughput.

Demo attendees will also be entered into a daily drawing for a free REVO Handheld. A $995 value, REVO Handheld is an impressive, versatile tool that can cure filler and coatings in three minutes or less. It can also be used for a variety of other applications, including softening glass seals, heating up aluminum to repair aluminum-body vehicles or pulling dents. We will be giving away one REVO Handheld each of the first three days of the show.

Introducing Booth Shield™

In addition to showcasing our paints booths and REVO technology, we will be introducing a new line of peelable, protective booth coatings at SEMA Show. Compatible with all types of booths, Booth Shield provides a bright, clean finish on paint booth surfaces and ensures prime visibility while working inside the booth.

Easy to apply and remove, while providing long-lasting coverage, Booth Shield offers significant advantages compared to traditional paper wrap. The liquid coatings can be sprayed or rolled onto the surface, built up to desired thickness and easily peeled off in large sections when it’s time to replace it. By trapping overspray and minimizing fire hazards caused by excess paint accumulation, Booth Shield also creates a safer spraying environment for painters.

The complete product line includes wall and floor prep coats, peelable white wall coats, peelable translucent wall coats and peelable floor products.

We hope to see you in Las Vegas for the SEMA Show at booth #11229!
