At Villa Auto body shop, the refinish department is separate from the metal shop and is composed of many different state of the art tools:

  • Nine-car capacity (for preparation).
  • AFC Downdraft spray booth w/ AFC 1,000,000 BTU heat makeup system built in (cures paint quickly for speedy repair process), and a detached mixing room (creates a clean environment for mixing and storage of paint and allows painters to travel in and out of the booth during spray procedures with less dust entering the spray booth).
  • Cross flow prep station (provides proper ventilation and creates a barrier from other cars in the paint department to prevent over spray from reaching those cars).
  • High volume low-pressure HVLP spray guns (higher quality, more DEQ friendly).
  • Dupont computerized paint formulating system.
  • 2 Infrared portable paint dryers (quickens prep procedures, i.e. priming).

"Environmentally Friendly Shop"

Villa Auto body shop understands the importance of protecting the environment and takes many steps to ensure that all requirements are met or exceeded.

  • Have a registered EPA number.
  • Recycle solvent, paint waste, & antifreeze through Safety-Kleen, an EPA approved recycler.
  • Use recycled solvents to clean equipment and to reduce waste.
  • Recycle freon.
  • We evacuate the vehicle's A/C system when we are going to be working around it or are going to remove it before work is started to prevent any possible escape of freon into the environment.
  • HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure) spray guns are used on all refinishing procedures - less VOC's (volatile organic compounds) produced - less material used = less waste, and they produce a higher quality product than the old pot style guns.
  • Use only EPA approved exhaust filters.
