2k Factory Baked Clear Gloss is used over metallic paints on cars when manufactured. The shine that is seen a metallic painted car is in fact not the colour it is a 2k clear gloss. This clear gloss is used to ideally protect the metallic paint color as well as give the paint an appealing good look.
Unfortunately when scratch damage happens in Clear Over Base Metallic Paint the clear is the first scratched paint layer, so the clear must be repaired first.
2k factory clear gloss can Also be applied to repair metallic painted surfaces where the clear has started to peel off in spots. By sealing the peeling paint with the clear gloss pen you will possibly be able to slow/stop the peeling effect.
