Volvo Testing New Paint Sealant

Stockholm, SWEDEN (AP) - Volvo Group has announced a rigorous new testing program for it’s state of the art, industry leading paint sealant that is currently being proposed for it’s automobile line.

“By using a fine coating of volcanic ash and then subjecting it to vigorous rubbing actions, we are able to duplicate the most difficult of conditions for paint to endure,” says Borje Svvendelborrggen, head of product development. He adds, “If the paint sealant can hold up to this testing, we are optimistic that we can adapt it for trucks and even marine use."

Putting a new product on the market can be tricky given the hard global economy and the costs that are inherent in development, but as Borje is quick to point out, “We came up with a method that is saving us money. Never have we had such enthusiastic response from our staff, many of whom have even offered to work for free to help us in this critical stage of development.”

According to unnamed sources, Volvo is even developing a kit that would allow consumers to purchase the sealant for application at home, without having to bring the car into a dealership for the full treatment.

Great idea, but will this work over the long run?

It is the opinion of those who are wise that it will revolutionize the automotive industry. As it stands, there are over a hundred employees willing to work for half wages just so they can do extra time on the testing teams.

The French tried it, but somebody was always leaving for a cigarette or going off on a strike of some kind. Even the French had to admit that having one person performing the, um, test, all alone on a vehicle was, tres, tres, disgusteeeng.
