Designed to help collision centers be more productive, efficient and profitable, the AdvanceCure Accelerated Airflow System from Global Finishing Solutions® (GFS) greatly reduces the amount of time needed to dry any type of base coat — be it waterborne or solvent-based.
As warm air rises in a paint booth, the surface temperature of the vehicle can vary by 15 degrees Fahrenheit from top to bottom. This can pose a challenge for achieving an even temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit over the entire surface of a vehicle. In a typical downdraft paint booth, this process can take up to 20 minutes. With AdvanceCure, this time can be cut in half to about eight minutes.
AdvanceCure distributes heat more evenly throughout the booth and over the vehicle. By reducing the amount of time required for each paint job and promoting an even cure in less time, AdvanceCure helps put more jobs through your shop.
How it Works
When a paint booth is in spray mode, a layer of slow-moving air — known as boundary air — forms on the vehicle surface. This boundary air traps solvents and prevents the heated air from reaching the vehicle surface during cure mode, therefore slowing down the paint drying process.
The key to AdvanceCure’s amazing results is the controlled turbulent airflow it creates on the surface of the vehicle. This significantly improves the transfer of heat from the air to the painted panels, and provides a more even heat distribution over the entire vehicle. The result is drastically reduced drying times and better paint finishes.
For Newer-Model GFS Paint Booths
GFS’ AdvanceCure I-Series models are designed to seamlessly integrate into GFS automotive paint booths, making the best use of the spray booth’s space and resources. Our sleekest AdvanceCure I-Series model on Ultra® Paint Booths features motors that are hidden in the plenum.
All current GFS Ultra spray booths and Closed-Top Open-Front booths, as well as most Performer® Paint Booths, are designed to support the AdvanceCure I-Series so that you can easily add the system at any time.
Designed to Fit Any Existing Paint Booth
R-Series AdvanceCure Systems can be installed in virtually any model or brand of paint booth or prep environment. The AdvanceCure R-Series comes in multiple designs to accommodate various spray booth styles and sizes. Modules can be placed in the corner or on the sidewall of the spray booth, and feature either fully integrated or remote blowers.
The standard AdvanceCure System features multiple independently adjustable air nozzles on each module. The nozzles can be positioned at problem areas or at regular intervals around the spray booth to improve the overall spray booth airflow. The optional laser-aiming device makes it easy to pinpoint specific areas of the painted surface.
The Blade option for GFS’ AdvanceCure System improves upon the class-leading performance of the standard nozzle system. Tested by paint companies, AdvanceCure Blade® provides premium performance and reduced maintenance, with no need to move or clean nozzles. The exclusive air-knife design allows for precise direction of air through small slits in the module. The Blade option can be added to most I-Series horizontal AdvanceCure models.
Dedicated to continuous improvement and developing industry-leading products, GFS’ AdvanceCure System has seen significant improvements since it was first introduced in 1998 — the first of its kind on the market. Today’s AdvanceCure System is far more efficient than previous models and can be integrated into virtually any spray booth or prep environment.
GFS’ AdvanceCure System provides superior contamination control to keep dirt and dust out of your paint finish. Before air exits the AdvanceCure module and enters the paint booth, it is filtered three times — through the booth intake pre-filter, ceiling filter and filter within the module. This supplies the paint booth with contaminant-free airflow.
Full Vehicle or Spot Painting
The unique control system on GFS’ AdvanceCure gives you complete control over each individual module, making it just as effective for spot painting a single panel as it is for painting the entire vehicle. By turning on only the modules that you need for the job, you will also reduce energy costs.
GFS guarantees that our products meet or exceed all of the applicable codes related to the equipment.

When Dan Morrow started his company at 24 years old, he never imagined the growth and success that would come throughout the past 18 years. Recently, Morrow Collision Center opened a 2nd location in February 2020, five times the size of the original location, which gave them more room for equipment.
Car accidents can be a traumatic experience, and afterward, body shops are the last place people want to visit. Jesse and Cathy Ruhmann wanted to help alleviate that stress for customers. That’s why they broke off on their own in 2015 to open Referral Collision in Shakopee, Minnesota.
