Quality and Service

At E&M Auto, we stand behind our service and the DuPont products we carry above all else. We recommended a system from DuPont Industrial Coatings for Greg Pinkerton, General Manager of Atlantic Fabritech in McGaheysville, VA.

He had this to say:

"...this system came out way ahead in thickness, coatability and ease of use. We solicited opinions from our painters as well, and it was just hands down, nobody wanted anything but the DuPont paint."

"We have had no issues with E&M. It's like calling a member of your family. They always ask 'Do you need it today?' It's never 'We can't get that to you.' In fact, more than once, their reps have dropped paint off on their way home at night. They have gone completely out of their way for us."

Base Coat vs. Single Stage Paints

A base coat requires the secondary application of a clear coat. Single stage paints are standalone applications. While single stage paints often produce a deeper black, base and clear coats regularly produce the best results otherwise.
