For commercial vehicles especially, not just any paint should and can be used for the finish. The surfaces of the vehicles are by no means made of uniform materials. There's steel and various metals such as aluminum, areas made of polyester, etc., which are not always as easy to coat and cover as uniform metal bodies. This must be considered at every step of the procedure, with every coat that is applied, and this involves requirements for the vehicle paint that is used.
However, durability and protection against environmental influences are not everything in vehicle painting either. Particularly for commercial vehicles that also serve as advertising space – as is the case with many trucks and buses, for example – the paint should not only look really good, but must also be available in the right shades of color. Here it's important to be able to produce a customized blend without sacrificing quality.
The painting process will always be done in several steps. The base surface needs to be prepared, primer and other appropriate substances are applied in several layers. For each layer, it's necessary to pay attention to special features before finally applying the last layer and before the paint can really make a shiny impression.
Luckily, you don't have to repaint the entire vehicle for every surface scratch. This is another reason why we also offer precisely mixed color shades in smaller quantities and as spray cans, so that you can make even the smallest repairs without much effort. Here, though, it's important to achieve a result with a smooth appearance – this takes a bit of practice. If any rust has already set in, closer treatment is needed, of course. In this case, all paint layers are obviously damaged as well, and a more thorough repair will be necessary, at least on a local area.
