EZ Mix Lets You See What You’re Doing and Save Time and Hassle

Accurate measurements are vital in all areas of auto body repair. From paint to epoxy, sealer to primer, everything needs to be measured and mixed correctly. Doing otherwise leads to costly waste in the best case, and poor quality results for customers in the worst case. Traditionally, mixing and measuring have been hard to do, particularly given the wide range of liquids that most body shops have to deal with. Add to that the fact that you don’t really want to mix some of those liquids together, and you’ve got a tough situation. EZ Mix has a clear solution, though.

EZMix Products

EZMix products offer the accuracy, control and easy mixing capabilities you need. The company manufactures a range of mixing and measuring products, ideal for any shop, large or small. Perhaps the best thing about these clear cups is that they’re completely disposable. Use them for your mixing and measuring needs, and then toss them out. That eliminates the time and hassle of trying to remove dried paint from permanent mixing and measuring systems, and saves you money in the long run (saved time equals savings on payroll). 

Clearview Technology     


One of the most difficult things about mixing paint is the fact that you need to see what you’re doing. In a solid colored mixing cup or bowl, that’s impossible to do. The immediate result is the wrong mixture, or so much time spent trying to get it right that you’re falling behind on your work. Clearview technology (EZMix’s unique solution to the visibility problem) ensures that you can always see exactly how much of what paint or other liquid you’ve got in the cup, making mixing a cinch.

EZ Mix clearview products aren’t only available in cups, either. You’ll also find bowls, pitchers, buckets, bottles, clearview cans and even spray bottles that double as paper towel holders. The range of product types ensures that no matter what type of shop you’re running or what type of job you’ve got going, you can get the ideal mixing solution.

Other Products from EZ Mix

Not all paint mixing needs revolve around mixing containers, as any shop owner will tell you. That’s why EZ Mix produces several other vital products, including color match cards, touch up bottles and paint sticks (yes, those are for mixing). With the range of products available, you can save an immense amount of time and money.

Five Star Xtreme Primers – Major Brand Quality without the Cost

Painting is an integral part of automotive bodywork. Whether you’re doing something relatively simple like replacing a hood or a single body panel, or repairing a wrecked vehicle with significant body damage, it’s all going to culminate in painting. Both the customer’s perception of the repair job hinge on getting the paint right, but so does the protection of the underlying metal. Of course, as anyone who’s worked in a body shop for any length of time knows, a great paint job starts with what's underneath the paint including the right primer. Five Star Xtreme Primers offer major brand quality and durability, without the cost.

Faster Production

In any body shop, speed is an important consideration. Take too long on one job, and profitability and production fall by the wayside. The process of painting a repaired vehicle is time consuming, so you need to ensure the products you use are up to the task. 5 Star Primer offers some of the fastest drying capabilities on the market, ensuring that you’re able to complete the paint job in good time (and then move on to the next). High-production shops benefit greatly, but any body shop can appreciate this benefit.

Filler and Primer in One

Using a separate primers and sealers is a chore, and it cuts into production time. 5 Star auto body primer and sealer lets you do both at once. The company’s 2k Primer offers excellent adhesion to body panels, and is high build for better filling. Like other Five Star Xtreme products, the 2K Primer is fast drying for better productivity, but it’s also easy to sand down to the perfect finish. Additionally, it can be mixed differently depending on your needs and the job in question (it does need to be mixed with Activator 5457, though). After it’s been applied, dried and sanded, you can apply any automotive paint without worries.

Bare Metal

Everyone knows that when it comes to applying primer to bare metal, adhesion suffers. However, with Five Star Xtreme Self-Etching Filter Primer, that’s not a problem. The primer contains an acid that etches into the bare metal and provides secure adhesion for the application. It’s also corrosion resistant, so you don’t need to worry about rust forming between the primer and the metal surface, either.

Five Star Xtreme Primers offer professional results, outstanding warranty coverage and a price that you won’t find with big brand names.
