SCRATCH REPAIR

Deep Scratches

Deep narrow scratches that are down to the paint or primer can be fixed with Paint2Fix. It is important during the Paint2Fix blending solution step to apply very light pressure on the cloth so as to not remove excessive paint from the scratch.

Non-deep Scratches

To give the retouched paint a smooth effect, you can swipe the paint using the white plastic card included in the product package. You can then remove any overflowing touch-up paints using the blending solution. For non-deep scratches, do not apply the blending solution directly to the retouched area, only use it to remove overflowing paint. Otherwise, the blending solution will remove the retouched paint.

Colours and Colour Matching

Does it work well on all colours and metallic?

Paint2Fix works especially well on dark and solid colors including metallic paint. When using Silver and Gold metallic paint there can be some shade variation due to the metallic particles within the paint which can cause the applied paint to be darker in some light conditions.

Does it work on Pearlescent / Tri Coat Finishes?

Yes. Whilst this is the most difficult finish due to the complexity of the paint we have achieved very good results with our paint system.
