Brighton-area collision shop getting a jump on federal regulations

Automakers are already starting to use it, and the federal government will soon require waterborne paints in all collision shops, so Bob Campbell made the switch early. 

The changeover from solvent-based to waterborne paints over the last few months took a little bit of a learning curve, but Campbell, the owner of Campbell Collision, 9987 E. Grand River in Brighton Township, said the transition has been good.

“We’re one of the few collision shops in the area that uses it,” he said, but since some states are already requiring the more environmentally friendly paints and he could see what was coming, he made the switch.
