Toyota Motor has announced a new paint removal technology that will enable the Japanese auto manufacturer to provide a new value-added service to its customers by next year. The paint removal technology will make it possible to "dress up" the old Toyota cars and repaint their body with one of more than 100 colours on offer. The automaker claims that the new coat of paint too can be stripped off, allowing the original colour theme to shine again. Initially, this service will be available in Japan only.

This new technology comes on the back of statistics that point out that people are retaining their existing vehicles for a longer number of years than before due to several factors. With the arrival of this new technology, Toyota hopes to help people own cars for even longer periods of time. Also, this technology will allow the drivers freedom to choose their new colour.

Speaking about the technology, Kinto is claimed to use high-velocity water spray for stripping the existing paint of the car. This would avoid any probable damage to the vehicle. In other paint stripping jobs, some specific stripping chemicals are used to do the job. The report claims that with this new paint job, the vehicle will have better rain and wind protection.
