Paint Technology:

One of the problems dealing with paint defects is that most people do not have a firm grasp on what paint technology is. Here is a list of the most common types of paintwork:

  • Single stage
  • Dual stage (Base & clear-coat)
  • Lacquer
  • Enamel
  • Urethane
  • Water-based

Paint also has multiple layers that can be damaged from:

  • Scratches
  • Swirls
  • Bird droppings
  • UVA & UVB rays
  • Oxidation
  • Overspray
  • Paint exchange from minor collisions
  • Keys

With so many different types of paint and multiple ways it can be damaged, learning all the tools and techniques is a must for the Do-It-Yourself detailer as well as the professional. Smart Detailing University is here to assist you in all your Buffing & Polishing needs.
