What Is Waterborne Paint & What’s So Special About It?

Years ago, our auto body repair shop was the first of all auto repair shops to receive Green certification from the Monterey Bay Area Green Business Program. To obtain this green certification, we had to employ various procedures that prove to be environmentally friendly. One of the major things that helped us earn that certification was our use of waterborne paint.

CARSTAR Robert’s Collision was the first and only Green shop in the area using waterborne paint. This type of paint is water-based and the leading auto body paints in the industry that is eco-friendly. Using waterborne paint instead of more harmful kinds is better for the environment and your vehicle for several reasons:


  1. First of all, we don’t have to sacrifice quality.

  2. This technology reduces hazardous waste that negatively impacts the environment as well as our employees.

  3. When waterborne paint is used, it serves an effective solution for lowering volatile organic compound emissions. 

  4. Waterborne paint improves air quality and our environment.

  5. CARSTAR Robert’s Collision hires only certified technicians who are well trained and uses our state-of-the-art equipment.

  6. We have invested in the best equipment to ensure a perfect product.

  7. Waterborne provides better coverage because it has more pigments than other types of pain.
