The PPG Recommended Process for Repairing Translucent Colors

Many OEM colors are considered to be translucent. Highly translucent colors provide a cleaner, more vibrant look than older technology pigmentation. In this video, we will review the PPG recommended process for repairing translucent colors. It is very important to understand the impact of spectral grays on your final color when working with translucent colors. The pigments used to formulate these type colors must be transparent to keep their vibrancy. When you try to paint a color like this in 1.5 coats or to full hiding, you lose clarity and color match. This demonstration will show the benefits of using a blended edge underneath a translucent color versus the defined edge of a sanded primer alone.
