Plastic Primer – This is an essential paint layer when repairing paint scratches that have completely been removed from plastic parts such as your bumper bar. The plastic primer is formulated to a clear one coat thin application which will give the perfect paint build when repairing or refinishing a plastic part like bumper bars. The general rule of thumb is that if permanent repairs are required then adhesion promoter is a must. Note: Failing to apply the adhesion promoter will surely eventually lead to paint repair failure in the long term decreasing the value of your car and other poorly repaired items.

Metal Primer – Also known as the electrostatic coating the manufacturer applies before painting. This surface is a durable solution that protects, coats and seals the entire metal car body completing the finishing of top-coat colour layers for metallic paint.

Colour Paint – The Metallic Paint Color that is seen on your car is not only designed to protect the car body but to also make the appearance look appealing to the prospective owners.
