- Our technicians are ASE Refrigerant Recovery, and Recycling Certified to exceed industry standards and regulatory requirements for refrigerant recovery and recycling.
- Our vacuum-assist sanding removes over 90% of the dust from today’s sanding and finishing processes.
- Our paint center utilizes the latest spray booth technology, enabling the capture of 98% of all paint particulates during both the spray and bake cycles.
- All Lindsay painters are given Grade D breathable, air-supplied respirators to ensure the safest possible work environment.
- We’ve pioneered the use of water-based paint versus solvent-based paint for significant reductions in Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants. Whenever possible, we opt for water-based paints.
At Lindsay Collision Center we believe that serving customers like you means delivering exceptional results in ways that are environmentally responsible.
Our collision centers partner with the worlds largest paint and coatings manufacturer, AkzoNobel to deliver the most superior auto paint while protecting the environment.

What Makes AkzoNobel Paint Better For The Environment?
You’ve heard people discussing “waterborne” and “solvent-borne” paints and wondered how they are different. Does choosing one mean better results and the other mean better for the environment?
Simply put, solvent-borne coatings use petrochemical products as the main solvent for thinning the paint. Although effective, this method releases volatile organic compounds (VOC) into the atmosphere during the painting process. Waterborne coatings use water as the primary thinning method which greatly reduces VOC emissions.
Do waterborne coatings perform as well as solvent-borne? Absolutely. Advanced technology has made waterborne coatings equal in performance to solvent-borne coatings. The waterborne coatings from AkzoNobel meet or exceed the highest standards for car repair.
