TIPS AND TRICKS FOR VEHICLE PAINTWORK AFTERCARE
We cannot prevent external influences like humidity, changes in temperature, sunlight, road salt, industrial gases, bird droppings, tree sap etc. from attacking a car’s coating.
In wet weather, a small quantity of water vapor is absorbed into the paint system and will evaporate again in dry weather (osmosis). This process is normal and does not harm a perfectly matched paint system.
Loss of adhesion can manifest itself in two different ways: there can either be a lack of adhesion between the substrate and the whole paint system or a lack of intercoat adhesion (between the individual coats).
Metamerism is the effect where a color that appears the same shade to a second color under certain conditions, e.g., in daylight, may look totally different under different conditions, e.g., when viewed in artificial light such as garage or street lighting.
Very slow evaporation of residual solvent from fresh paintwork. This causes widespread sinkage of the paint surface which can result in loss of gloss (haze) and locally also in edge markings/mapping. (see "Edge marking”).
