Painted Car Part with Clear Coat Partify

Clear Coat 101

What is clear coat? Does Partify use clear coat? What is the purpose of clear coat? These are questions the Partify Team gets asked quite often. The answer is yes! Partify applies two layers of clear coat to every painted auto part. Not only do we use a clear coat to achieve that gorgeous, glossy, shiny finish, but there are also multiple other advantages with using a clear coat. Let’s talk about it.

What is Clear Coat?  

After the primer and paint get applied to the part, the clear coat is the final step. The clear coat is colorless and adds a glossy finish to the painted part. Thus, without applying the clear coat, the painted part would have a dull, matte finish.

Benefits of Clear Coat  

Besides the glossy appearance, the clear coat is crucial to prevent damage from happening to the paint on the part. A clear coat protects the paint from UV rays, environmental factors, and other harmful contaminants. Whether it be rain, dust, snow, chemicals, or salt, a layer of clear coat prevents damage to your freshly painted part.

I purchased a fender for my Equinox and it was packaged perfectly and no damage at all. The only complaint I have is that the paint has several spots of trash bumps and a couple of blemishes. Maybe I can buff it out.

Hi Partify,

I just placed an order for a pre-painted passenger side front fender for a 2013 Honda CR-V (Paint Code is R548P / Basque Red Pearl II).

My quick question is what is a Category 1 paint job? Will all fenders be painted with a Category 1 paint job as standard before shipping? Or other paint methods?

I read on the web site that the painted part will also receive 2 layers of clear coat.

Thank you in advance for your help!
Nick

Hi I just placed an order for a tailgate painted. Few questions where do I send the chips of paint to get exact match and how big do the chips have to be?
