TWO STAGE CAR PAINT METALLIC REPAIR SYSTEM FOR ACCURATE & EXCELLENT RESULTS
There are two main types of scratches: that occur in metallic paint. The first type of scratches are light brushed scratches. These types of scratches are light and whitish looking and only need clear to camouflage. The other type of scratch are deep & discolored where the either metal or plastic surface is visible and will require primers so this type of scratch does not need clear at this point of the repair so GO straight to color.
Stage 1: Your car is painted in layers from the factory so when your paint is scratched there are different levels of damage that occur in a single impact. Stage 1) light scratches where only the clear is damaged and needs the first step of this metallic repair manual to to either completely remove the scratch or camouflage it so it is barley noticeable.
Stage 2) Where primers, color & clears layers that are completely removed and either bare metal or bare plastic is exposed & the appropriate paint layer needs to be applied in the same way the factory formula is sprayed. So Basically fix the light scratches first using stage 1 & then using stage 1 & stage 2 together to repair, remove & camouflage heavier paint chips, scratches & blemishes.
STAGE 1. PAINT SCRATCH REPAIR
1) CLEAR GLOSS
Definition: Brush Touch Clear is used over metallic paints on cars when manufactured. The shine that is seen a metallic painted car is in fact not the color it is a 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 a scratch happens in metallic paint the clear is the first scratched paint layer, so the clear must be repaired first.
Procedure: Shake clear contents well before use. Remove cap and squeegee brush. Accurately apply 1 coat to light scratches not putting any brush touch clear on good paint.
Clear Gloss Tips & Tricks: Brush Touch clear gloss can be applied to metallic painted surfaces where the clear has started to peel off in spots. By sealing the peeling paint with brush touch clear you will possibly be able to slow/stop the peeling effect. As soon as a sign of peeling clear appears seal it with the Brush Touch clear to stop the peeling form travelling.
STAGE 2. PAINT SCRATCH REPAIR
2) PAINT COLOR
Definition: Brush Touch Metallic Paint color is used to cover deep discolored scratches, chips & paint defects caused by impact of an object where color coats are completely removed and/or left paint transfer that is impervious to solvent & is to thick to remove using cream cutting agents.
Procedure: Shake color contents well. Remove cap and squeegee brush. Check the color is correct. Apply color only to the fully discolored areas of damaged paint where the paint layers including the color coat has been completely removed. Allow 3 minutes drying time in between coats in good weather. If you have impact residue that did not come off in earlier steps, apply one or two coats of color directly on only the discolored area.
Paint Color Tips & Tricks: Always know your paint layers and make sure your not touching up clear scratches with color or the scratch will look just as bad as the original scratch. You can usually tell which layer the scratch is in when using the Solvent or Clean-up solution. As the solvent is applied it will give the area a wet look. While it is wet if the scratch disappears that usually means that your paint scratch is confined to the top coat layer of the paint and Clear Gloss should be used.
3) CLEAR GLOSS
Definition: Brush Touch Clear gloss is used to shine, seal & protect metallic paint color.
Procedure: Shake clear contents well before use. Remove cap and squeegee brush. Apply 1 to 2 coats of clear gloss over the applied paint color performed in the previous step. Do not apply clear to good paint.
