What is the difference between metallic paint and pearl paint?

The sparkling agent in pearl paint is a pearl pigment which is essentially a mica, aluminum oxide, or glass flake that has been coated with metal oxides to make a colored sparkle. Pearl paints tend to have more richness and depth than metallic paints in some colors.

Do I have to add the pearl?

No. Our pearl paints come with he pearl already properly wetted and dispersed into the paint. All you have to do it reduce and/or activate the paint to apply and achieve the pearl effect.

What is the difference between 2 stage and 3 stage pearl paint?

Two stage pearl paint is where one color is applied and cleared to achieve the pearl effect. A 3 stage pearl requires 3 different product layers; a base layer, a transparent midcoat layer, and protective clear coat.

How much paint do I need?

The amount of paint you will need depends on a lot of factors including the size of the vehicle you are painting, how much of the vehicle you are painting, which color you use, your spray equipment, and the technique and skill of your painter. Generally speaking a gallon kit of paint is enough for the outside and jambs of a small to medium sized vehicle. Larger vehicles or if you are painting more than the outside and jambs will require more paint. Quart kits are generally enough paint for motorcycles and golf carts. However, if you have a large motorcycle or golf cart with a lot of pieces you might need an additional quart kit.

Which clear should I use?

We highly recommend the UC-210 UreChem HS Glamour clear. The UC-210 has been proven to offer more UV protection than most clears on the market which extends the life of your finish. Our 2K MS clear is a good choice in colder weather or when you need a faster drying product.

Which activator and reducer should I use?

The activator and reducer to select depends on the size of the vehicle or parts you are painting, the temperature, and your air movement. Generally speaking when painting a 30%+ of a car’s surface area at once you’ll want medium or “standard” reducer and activator as it is called for vehicle surface temps up to 85F. For temperatures above that slow is the better choice. Generally fast is only recommended for smaller areas in cooler temps.
