What is paint blending and why is that important in fixing Car Scratch Repairs?
Paint blending is required for most Car Scratch Repairs so the colour of the car looks consistent. If you just paint the scratched area only then the newly painted panel will look different compared to the old paint on the other panels of the car. Some colours and paint types require larger amounts of blending to give a car perfect a factory finish. Without blending the scratch repaired panels will stick out like a new bathroom tile.
What is a ‘paint touch up’ and why is it much cheaper?
As the name suggests a touch up is when the repairer literally paints over the scratched area only. Protective finishing clear coats are usually not applied either. With very small scratches this process is usually good enough. However, with the majority of scratches, a touch-up job is not recommended as they will leave a dark, noticeable mark over the damaged area and will likely fade in the harsh Australian climate within 6 to 12 months.
What are Small to Medium Area Repair Technologies?
Small to Medium Area Repair Technologies are meant for small Car Scratch Repairs, dents or dings that can be repaired efficiently without needing conventional panel beating methods. In the case of Car Scratch Repairs, this usually means isolating the painting and blending to a minimal area to save time and costs.
