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.
