As the first coat to be applied, primers play an essential role in the longevity and professional finish of a car’s paintwork. Primers create a smoother surface by levelling out any marks or defects on the metal substrate. They also act as a binding layer that enables the base coat to adhere to the surface, which helps prevent flaking, chipping, corrosion and sun damage.
 
The base coat is applied after the primer coat. This is what gives cars their colour and visual effect. Base coats are usually divided into four categories, namely solid, metallic, pearl and xirallic.
Solid colour
This is the entry-level paint option available on most car models. Unlike pearl or metallic pigments, it has no sparkling agents. The paint is formed by topping a single layer of colour with a clear-coat layer designed to protect the car against minor damage such as light scratches and paint chips.
 
Metallic
Metallic colours are designed to give the appearance of polished metal. Small particles of powdered metal and aluminium are added to the paint to create a sparkling metallic effect when exposed to a light source.
 
Pearl
Pearl paint is created by adding mica particles or ceramic crystals that split light into rich chromatic colours. Pearlescent paints are considered to have more depth of colour than conventional metallic paint.
 
Xirallic
Xirallic is an alumina-effect pigment made of aluminium oxide platelets covered with titanium oxide. The result is a striking glitter effect with a distinct shimmering behaviour.

We are able to ensure perfect colour matching through the use of a spectrophotometer. Resembling a barcode scanner, this sophisticated device measures colour electronically by shining a beam of light onto a colour sample and recording the wavelengths of reflected light. The computer then matches this data to the paint system, and creates a formula to mix the precise paint colour required.
