ive never heard of it who makes it i think paint and other products are like hotdogs. ( i worked in a meat packing plant a few yrs ago) the hot dogs would come down the belt, get counted, wraped, and i put stickers on them which brands went to what store they continued down the belt packers put them in the store boxes amazing. there are only a few paint companys out there.. so maybe its just a company selling the product under a different name that dont meet their high standards. Martin guitars does that. and a lot others

Sorry, it don't work that way in paint business.

Wanda was named after one of the CEO's daughter, and is made by sikkens as a stand-along low cost line.
They have a master distributor (RBL) that sells the line with no sikkens ties or support.

I've used it a couple times. It's a cheaper brand sold by axel noble.I just painted the roof on a 61 chev with it. Painted a 79 corvette last year. Put spi clear on them and looked just fine. Maybe one step up from omni.Has good coverage and lays down good. If your not doing a all out show car should work just fine on anything. Haven't tryed a spot job yet for color match but would think it would be as good as omni.

Akzo Nobel is one of the largest (if not the largest) paint companies in the world with all sorts of familiar names such as Sikkens, Awlgrip, Interlux, U-Tech, Liquid nails, Glidden and more.
Wanda was sold for years down in South America, I think Brazil mostly where it was named after the founder's daughter.
It is a price leader paint line with a fairly full line.
A jobber close to me carries it but doesn't seem to want to push it very hard. I have no idea of how it performs, but given Akzo Nobel's resources, I would think it performs at least as well as competitive brands in that price range.

I used some Wanda to repaint a front fender on my 54. I had used the top shelf Azkel Nobel base originally and the Wanda color matched very well. This was a silver metallic.
I took some of the original base with me and after the initial mix we used the original to fine tune the tint.
Came out great.
With the cost per gallon of paint going up everytime you turn around it is good to find a product that is cost effective and works well.

I would not hesitate to use the Wanda brand again.

if you are going to use a lower line from akzo, use utech. I'd rather use a product where i can get tech support because like barry said, you get none with wanda. i asked my sikkens rep about gettin some and he just looked at me funny and shook his head and pretty much said stay with utech or lesonal if i'm going to do anything budget like that.

Mike,
I'm just reading away and read this, first thing that comes to my mind was I must have either not taken my idoit control pill, or I had been drinking and taken the pill.

I'm trying to delete what I wrote and can't, because you wrote it.

Ok, where is that miller light? LOL

Wanda Paint

A previous poster was correct. Wanda is owned by Akzo Nobel Coatings and it was named after the inventor's daughter. I am the co-owner of a NJ jobber and we sell Wanda Paint. It is an exceptionally priced product and our customers consistently praise the color match and coverage. We have sold more than 4,000 Wanda mixes to over 200 customers through Sep 2010. We have a Sikkens shop that purchased over 150 mixes for their rental car work. A Sikkens Waterborne shop that uses Wanda for their dealer work. A pint of Wanda will typically cost between $19 and $35. A shop with a Diamont or Chromabase mix machine couldn't make a pint for less than $40 to $50. The name is strange, but the quality and price can make capped jobs profitable

my granpa always told me "you caint sell a thousand dollar bull for 500 and keep the ranch long " . after all the work it takes to get a car to paint ready why would you cut corners on paint ? unless you want it to look like a car lot job .
