As a car enthusiast, I appreciate it when people are really into their cars.
FLX-Paint, a Tulsa-based company, understands the car-lovers' market very well. The company has developed a unique product, a stretchable car paint that comes on a roll.
“Car guys and gals are really into the look of their cars. Beautiful paint is emotional. Yet getting a car painted is expensive, time consuming and a permanent application,” says Melanie Harren, FLX-Paint's co-founder.
“If you have a new Camaro and want a racing stripe or two-tone paint job, you may talk yourself out of it because of time, price and permanency,” she says. “But what if you could add that second color for about half the cost of a traditional paint job, plus get your car back in two days instead of two weeks?”
FLX-Paint offers 38 stock colors and virtually any custom color. With color options such as kandy copper, brilliant sunshine pearl, blue wave or cosmic carbon ultraflake, what Camaro, Charger or Mustang owner could resist?
“Or imagine a car dealer or manufacturer who wants to offer customers a spring color pallet with a factory warranty,” Harren says. “When the car comes off lease or the owner is tired of the color, an installer can remove the FLX-Paint.”
FLX-Paint is building a network of professional installers, signing up businesses in the United States and abroad that apply window tint or vinyl wrap.
But don't confuse FLX-Paint with vinyl decal or vinyl wrap, Harren says.
“Compare us to premium paint. Once on the car, FLX-Paint provides the look and long-term performance of a traditional paint job. It can be buffed and waxed. When it's time to sell the car, simply remove the FLX-Paint, and the factory paint underneath will be in great shape.”
Many other uses
FLX-Paint isn't just for car-lovers and vehicles.
“Our real intellectual property is making beautiful paint that stretches around objects and compound curves,” Harren says.
“It can be used to wrap appliances, cellphones, laptops or even fingernails. We have a customer who is cutting FLX-Paint for fingernail kits. It's the perfect application, fast, nontoxic and looks fabulous.”
One yardstick of an innovation economy is the nearly constant surfacing of unique products and services that help people do things better and more efficiently … such as painting cars.
