Gone Green

Lents Body Shop Inc. was the very first Portland-Vancouver Metro area auto body and paint shop to install the Environmentally Friendly “BASF Glasurit 90 Line Waterborne Paint System”.

“BASF Glasurit 90 Line Waterborne Paint” is an award – winning paint system that dramatically reduces topcoat VOC emissions – close to 90 percent over solvent–borne products.  BASF earned the prestigious “Presidential Green Chemistry Award” from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. They are the first automotive paint manufacturer EVER to win this coveted honor for using chemistry to significantly reduce pollution.

Serving the Lents Neighborhood since 1968, this shop is committed to being an environmental winner in the auto body collision repair & paint industry. With over 70% of vehicle manufacturers already using waterborne coatings as the original paint finish, they know it only makes sense to utilize the same technologies and refinish procedures as the manufacturer when matching colors on vehicle repairs.

Owner Randy Dagel has built a business that has earned top recognition as a “Certified Eco-logical Automotive Business” by meeting the strict requirements set by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, the City of Portland Environmental Services, and the Oregon Metro Open Spaces program.

Lents Body Shop Inc. has also received the AAA of Oregon “Certificate of Approval” in recognition of superior performance in meeting its customers automotive service needs, and have also earned top recognition as a Gold Class Facility by I-CAR (the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repairs). They are also members of ASA (Auto Service Association), NATA (Northwest Automotive Trades Association), and OCRS (Oregon Collision Repair Specialists).
