Know more about clear coat paint and its characteristics

Recently I come across an article particular written on clear coat paint finishes. Although the article was primarily meant for paint and body shop owners and technicians, I found that the information available can be helpful for dealers as well. In this article, I will put the excerpts out of that article.

Till the late 80’s and early 90’s, most of the auto manufactures started using clear coat paint finishes on their vehicles almost exclusively. Then it became important for every dealer to understand how to determine a clear coat finish.

During the mid-50’s, when customized cars were great in demand, a thick topcoat of clear coat was the final finish to a customized car finish. The reason behind its use is the need for greater depth and gloss to the paint. This finish also protects any murals, custom graphics or striping that was on the car. In those earlier days "custom-painters" were under the image that more paint was better paint and you would see the error of this assumption when they put on extremely thick laquer clear-coat finishes. If you were in the paint or detail business back then you will remember the paint finishes that cracked in less than a year, after all the solvent had evaporated.

Another advantage of clear coat paint finish is the durability of the paint. This is particular true not only in factory work but aftermarket as well. As we know that the factory has the advantage of treating the paint at a high temperature because the wiring, plastic, etc is not in the car until after painting. In the aftermarket this high temperature is not feasible so the paint manufacturers have developed chemically drying paints that cure at lower temperatures.

You will be surprised to know that the durability of the clear coat paint finish goes even beyond the topcoat itself. By adding UV blockers to the clear coat you have an additional level of protection for the pigments in the base coat. As you know oxidation and fading have always been the big problem with paint finishes and the biggest problem faced by detailers. Now our biggest problem is to eliminate scratching and etching in the clear coat, which in many cases is impossible. It can be reduced, but not always averted. Before you think of applying clear coat paint finish to your vehicle, it is advised to carry out a comprehensive research online.
