Yes, Clear Coat is Required!

Want your vehicle to have a finished look? If you answered yes please read on!

Waterborne Paint is different than most paints you’re used to using. Once you apply the paint and it dries you will notice your spot will have no shine. This is because the paint is literally dry! Waterborne paint is pigment in water (non technical explanation). When the water evaporates whats left over is just the pigment. And without the clear coat your paint can absorb moisture which includes wax, oil, and grease. It is required that you clear coat the touch up within 24 hours of application. Once you clear coat your touch up it will bring back the gloss to  match your Car or Motorcycle.

Also, please take note that if your paint requires a Matte Clear, we have you covered. TouchUpDirect has gone through great lengths in order to achieve a perfect touch up. We have formulated our own line of Matte Clears that will match your Matte Car or Bike! These will come automatically if your Year/Make/Model require it.

    I just ordered and recieved from you some Mat Blacky Gray Metallic (HON163 Honda NHA32) which came with no matte clear. However, on the can, the sticker says “Requires FC03 Matte Clear”, which is as I understand it from other sites an “eggshell” matte clear. I can’t find any reference to this FC03 clear on your website when searching, and tried contacting you via email last week. Before I shoot the base coat, I’d like to know if I do indeed need it for my 04 Asphalt Honda CB600F (599) or not. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Hello,

    I did respond last week so I hope you get this message…yes, you do need the FC03 matte clear. I checked your order and no clear was ordered and you’re right, we do not yet have them individually on our website. You can call us at 855-600-8160 and order the FC03 clear if you like.

    Thanks
