Metallic paint with silver particles

Metallic paints can be seen as solid car paint, only with a small quantity of powdered metal added. This automotive paint shines bright like a diamond. The shine in silver paint comes from a small amount of aluminium powder mixed into car spray paint. The metal particles in metallic paint pick up and reflect the light, creating shine. The metallic effect can be enhanced when spraying multiple layers of metallic paint and lacquer (clear coat). Metallic paint looks best under direct sunlight.

Clear coat spray for optimum protection

Because metallic car paint can only be made in 1K quality, metallic paint requires a clear coat. Once activated, a 2-component clear coat is scratch resistant, petrol resistant, chemical resistant and does not yellow due to UV rays. Clear coat determines the gloss degree of your car, motorcycle, caravan or any other vehicle. Clear varnish is a clear transparent hard protective finish or film. It is applied over car spray paints as a final step to achieve a film for gloss and protection. 

SprayMax clear coat spray

SprayMax is a patented aerosol technology for professional users. The spray pattern of SprayMax spray cans is comparable to a spray gun but delivers less overspray. The painting system is used for repairs and spot repairs in the automotive sector and by industrial users and painters.

Difference Between Metallic and Pearlescent Paint

Whereas a metallic paint job adds powdered metal to its mixture, a pearlescent paint job swaps this for ceramic crystals (also known as mica). What's appealing about pearlescent finishes is that the crystal details in the paint not only reflect light more than solid paint, but it also refracts the light too. It splits the light into different colours, giving pearl paint the potential to show off interesting effects.
