What Tri-Coat Car Paint Repair Products To Order?




1) 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 for a clear one-coat thin application, giving 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 an 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.

2) 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 Tri-Coat paint.

Without this paint layer, when doing a paint touch-up repair it is near impossible to complete satisfactorily if the damaged area has the paint scratched down to the bare metal or bare plastic. This shade1 colour has full body pigment and will give the repair the underground colour coat that should be similar to the car’s body colour.

4) Colour Shade 2 – The final colour Tri-Coat Paint Color that is seen on your car is designed to give an appealing look to prospective owners. The shade 2 colour is usually a transparent solution that has a pearl and/or metallic pigment that makes the colour ever so appealing and great looking.
