Once the basecoat is on the vehicle, you’re ready for the clearcoat.
Apply an even coat. Wait 5 to 10 minutes for the first layer to dry.
Apply a second even coat. If you’re doing it right, the clearcoat will look clean and glossy when it goes on.
If you need to, you can apply one more layer after the second has dried.
Remember to wait 5 to 10 minutes between coats to give it time to dry.
We wanted to let you know a little bit about how our paints work. It is both deceptively simple and fueled by technology. The clearcoat for example, is treated with UV resistance to keep those sun rays off your actual color. It’s chemically resistant to many types of outside hindrances like tree sap, bird droppings and several types of fuel. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.
Let’s talk about what clearcoat actually is. It is an extremely thin plastic outer layer on the painted surface of your vehicle. Clearcoat is clear. You can see the color through the clearcoat, whether it’s a gloss or a matte finish. The clearcoat does the heavy lifting so that the basecoat is free to just focus on color.
