“Such vehicle parts are usually coated in extremely fine shades of silver. With Silver Star base coat, Spies Hecker now has an excellent material for paintwork repairs and original finishes,” said Frank Barduna, technical manager at Spies Hecker. “There’s a trend towards shades of silver. New Silver Star is our response to bodyshop demand for a bright and fine shade of silver.
“The microscopic metal pigments yield a smooth, aluminium-like gloss,” Barduna said. “Refinishers achieve the brightest effects if they spray a film of clear coat straight onto the surfacer before base coat application and then lightly sand the surface to prevent the effect from being marred by variations in substrate texture.”
The VOC-compliant base coat can be recoated with any Permasolid clear coat applied in 1.5 coats. Fine, noble and bright, new Permahyd Silver Star Base Coat from Spies Hecker is the ideal refinish solution for vehicle parts with special requirements.
