The importance of the paint on your car
The paint on your car does a lot more than just make it look it great. The colour of your paint is much more than an aesthetic, the finishing on your car is actually a safety feature.
How does the finishing on a car make it a safety feature?
Metal is really strong, but the natural process of it is to deteriorate over time. It just breaks down. Heat, cold, water and the air all assault the structure of metal. The process is slow, but constant. Paint actually inhibits the process of the metal breaking down, assisting the structure of your car to remain solid.
Why doesn’t the undercarriage of the car breakdown?
The area beneath the car doesn’t break down faster because it is coated with clear paint. It might not look like it is protected, but it actually is.
Take care of the paint, maintain value.
A well maintained paint job will help the car retain value for resale. By taking care of little chips, you protect your car, preserve its good looks, and maintain value.
Is automotive paint the same as regular paint?
Nope, it is a different kind of paint. The technology that goes into automotive point is advanced, and is always improving. Automotive paint consists of:
• Pigment – includes toners or colours in a powder form. These are combined to give the final look
• Resin – which will determine how durable the paint will be
• Solvent – which provides the flex, so that paint can be applied
