Pearlescent Paint

Pearlescent paint

Pearlescent car paint is a special automotive paint that has a shimmering, metallic glint. No other car paint type is more popular. Pearlescent spray paint does not only give car paint a sparkle, but also a deep colour that can vary depending on how you look at it. In direct sunlight, pearlescent paint knocks spots off metallic finishes. Pearl paint consists of two layers. The second layer determines the pearl effect. We always advise to use a clear coat as a third layer.

Clear coat spray for optimum protection

Because pearlescent car paint can only be made in 1K quality, pearl 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.
