A car painting is a rather complicated process, and it is one of the most expensive things.
The process includes such operations as body repair, padding, luting, anti-corrosion coating, repair of bumpers. Painting should be wear-resistant, resistant to temperature extremes and corrosion. The quality of painting should be high, since it affects the perception and vehicle appearance.
Types of dyes that are suitable for car painting:
- Melaminoalkide enamel. With its help, an excellent work result, high-quality coloring and gloss are easily achieved. Disadvantages – the drying time of the enamel.
- Nitro-paint. Fast drying, low weather resistance.
- Acrylic car paint. Weather resistance at a high level, excellent final gloss, excellent coloring characteristics. Disadvantages: the high cost of the dye, necessity to apply several staining layers.
Car painting steps:
- Flattening – elimination of damage on the treated surface;
- Luting – the surface leveling, grouting the powder material to remain the surface perfectly flat;
- Padding – applying of a special composition that helps to the adhesion of the dye and surface; anti-corrosion compound
- Degreasing of the painted surface – for reliable adhesion of the dye to the surface;
- The process of the car painting or its parts is to apply a thin layer of a dye that is precisely matched in color. At this stage, debris and dust on the painted surface are not allowed;
- Enamel drying;
- Enamel polishing to give shine and improve the car appearance;
- Checking of the quality. First of all, it is worth examining the painted elements in different conditions and note whether the result differs depending on the conditions: with artificial light, natural light and in the shade.
In order for the coating to be wear-resistant, it is important to pay attention to the processing of the edges of the parts: they must be carefully painted and covered with a protective layer of varnish.
