Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) 

 


 

Which Gloss Sheen should I choose?

The gloss sheen you choose really comes down to personal preference.  Lower gloss sheens like flat and matte tend to be easier to lay down evenly and show less dirt and nibs.  Higher gloss sheens like satin and semi-gloss tend to be easier to clean, more scratch resistant, and look richer in darker colors.

 

Which activator works best?

The activator should be chosen based on the size of area being painted and the temperature of the part.  Low gloss products tend to orient more evenly when applied wet and allowed to dry more slowly.  For this reason we rarely recommend fast activator.  In most instances when you are painting a car you should use the standard activator up to about 80F and the slow for anything above that. 

 

Can I polish this clear?

No.  Polishing changes the gloss in the areas you polish.  If you have a defect in your low gloss paint job  then that area needs to be resprayed in the same manner it was originally painted.

 

How is the clear mixed?

The clear mixes with activator 4:1 by volume.  However, it is critical that the matting agent gets mixed in uniformly before the clear is activated.  As low gloss clear travels to its destination, the matting agents slow settle to the bottom of the can. If it is not mixed back in well the first applications of clear will be high in gloss sheen and he last will be much lower than expected.  The best way to ensure the matting agent gets incorporated back in properly is to take a paint stick and scrape the bottom of the clear can well, gently mix, remove then stir stick, reseal, then shake well by hand.  Do this each time you use the product and it will remain consistent.


 

How is it possible to sell these products so much less than other companies?

Our unique sales and marketing strategy allows us to save large amounts of money by not hiring a national sales force to distribute our products. Furthermore, we do not have large marketing budgets based off exorbitant costs of race and show sponsorships.

How much paint do I need?

The amount of paint depends on a lot of factors but generally one kit will paint the outside and jambs on most vehicles.  Large SUVs or large trucks where you are spraying inside the bed may need another quart kit or two but this is rare.
