LAS VEGAS, Nevada (November 4, 2014) – AERO™ Advanced Paint Technology is a film-based paint system that has been developed within the aerospace industry for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, perfected in motorsports, and now available to the consumer aftermarket. The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) has provided an annual platform for the AERO™ Advanced Paint Technology team to showcase the lightweight, durable paint technology in the SEMA Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The SEMA Show is the largest automotive aftermarket industry event, and one of the largest conventions held in Las Vegas. As the premier automotive specialty products trade show, the SEMA Show draws over 60,000 attendees to over 500,000 square feet of space filled by 2,000 exhibitors occupying over 10,000 booths. Displays segmented into 12 sections and a New Product Showcase, will allow exhibitors, manufacturers, buyers, industry representatives, and media to attend education seminars, product demonstrations, and networking opportunities.
This year’s SEMA Show featured a custom Nissan GT-R wide body painted with Cobalt Blue from the AERO™ Liquid Metal™ series paints. The GT-R was entered by San Francisco Bay Area customizers GT Auto Concepts who specialize in high end and exotic automobile customizations. Under their mantra, “stock is boring,” the team at GT Auto Concepts set out to turn heads with the GT-R. The company serves many clients from their Redwood City, CA headquarters, and employs Xpel Technologies-certified installers skilled in the installation of AERO™ Advanced Paint Technology and Xpel paint protection film.
AERO™ Advanced Paint Technology was also featured on the Chevrolet Tahoe of Tyler McQuarrie Racing (TMR). The TMR Tahoe is adorned with a boom-mounted camera system for GoPro HERO cameras and DSLRs, and serves to capture high intensity video for motorsports, automotive, and action sports videographers. The consumer-market iteration of AERO™ Advanced Technology sold through XPEL Technologies as ULTIMATE Colour was Tyler McQuarrie’s first option. The Matte Black finish offered by AERO™ and XPEL gave Tyler the look he wanted, with the low gloss levels needed for glare-free video production.
