Evercoat, the #1 brand of body filler and putty in North America announces the launch of Rage OPTEX body filler with color-changing technology. Rage OPTEX changes colors from pink to green, indicating to the body shop technician that the repair is properly catalyzed and ready to sand.

“The collision repair industry is changing, and body shops are looking for ways to increase productivity and reduce costs” noted Steve Levine, Vice President and General Manager. “With the color-change feature of Rage OPTEX, the body shop technician doesn’t have to keep checking the repair—when the repair turns green, the technician knows it is ready to sand, taking the guesswork out of the repair and increasing productivity. Plus, Rage OPTEX is formulated with ECORESIN technology, allowing for fewer steps in the repair process and faster-and-easier sanding.”

The color-changing technology is also available in a putty and both body filler and putty are available through Evercoat distributors or jobbers. A list of Evercoat distributors is listed in the “Where to Buy” section of the Evercoat website.
