Why is it being introduced?
As vehicle design has become more and more complex so have repair requirements. Today, the collision repair industry needs a reliable source of information, such as the identification of the latest vehicle construction materials (including high strength steels and aluminium), welding and bonding techniques and specifications, as well as other specialised knowledge. In the past, access to this type of information has been limited but Thatchamnet provides an excellent solution by making available safe and cost effective methods of repair that really work. Thatchamnet is a product of Thatcham, a U.K. based, independently operated, not for profit organisation. Established in 1969, it is dedicated to providing a range of products and services to assist all those involved in the repair of accident damaged vehicles. PPG recognised the value this service could offer the local market and, as a result, the company has now been appointed to provide and facilitate access to Thatchamnet for the collision repair industry across Australia and New Zealand.
