When we repair any vehicle we dont just want to hand it back finished, we want the customer to be amazed at the quality of the work, part of this job is to ensure the paintwork is polished and gleaming which is why we machine polished this Nissan for the customer.
The paintwork on a car is made up of different layers. First, the bare metal body panel is coated with a primer, typically a greyish white colour, to ensure the paint adheres more efficiently to the surface and increases the paint’s durability. The base coat (colour) is then layered over the top, the total thickness of which varies with each manufacturer. Then, to protect the colour pigment, a clearcoat (lacquer) is applied on top. This provides an optically clear sealant that enhances both the colour and gloss and helps protect the base coat from being scratched or oxidised. Importantly, the clearcoat also contains UV protective elements designed to inhibit fading caused by the sun’s UV rays. The UV protective elements are lighter than the other sealing elements and tend to settle towards the upper layers as the clearcoat cures, an important point to remember when machine polishing. This is why the team at Smartworld are experts in ensuring your vehicle be that car, van or motorhome are repaired to the best possible standards.
