Choosing your Paint Material
There are five main types of Paint Materials;
2K Acrylic offers a high gloss top coat, hard and durable finish with very good coverage. This type of paint requires a hardener / activator for it to cure as it is not an air dry material.
Basecoat can be a solid colour, metallic or pearlescent / special effects. Basecoats are usually mixed with a basecoat thinner, are air dry and matt finish, and is overcoated with a clear coat to give a durable, high gloss finish.
Waterborne Basecoats are designed to significantly reduce solvent emissions into the environment. Solid, metallics, pearl, and special effect finishes are available and is overcoated with a clear coat to give a durable high gloss finish.
