* The solvent-based automotive 1K version is the paint the most commonly used: it’s explained by its fairly ease of use, the thinness of the coats and its quick evaporation.
The 250ml / 500ml cans are already diluted basecoats, and ready to pour in the spraygun!
SPECIALEFFECT Applied properly, our chameleons create a colour shift visual effect depending on the viewing angle: if you walk around the paint, you can see up to 4 different colours. Their iridescent finish is amazing and unrivalled.
Three-stages application process:
The application is quite easy, in reach of a complete beginner and consist of 3 successive steps (black background, chameleon, varnish).
BASECOAT: Apply first a background (paint or primer) that must be black. (You will find the product in our section 'Basecoat')
CHAMELEON: Spray thin successive passes with the gun, until the desired shade and the black background is completeley covered. To apply in "successive" coats means that the passes will be so thin that they will dry immediately and you don't need to wait between each pass.
Things you shouldn't do: thick wet coats.
TOPCOAT: It's mandatory: Not only 1K basecoats need to be protected with a clearcoat but also because the translucent topcoat will activate the perlescent effect and amplify it. Clear within 30mn to ensure a good adherence. We recommand our automotive clearcoat (refer to section TOPCOAT)
