In car refinishing, matching the color of the repaired area or part with the parts that have not been refinished is not an easy task as there are numerous factors that can influence the final result. To achieve perfect color integration and to ensure no differences of tone are seen between adjacent parts, the blending technique is applied to these parts.
6 steps for obtaining perfect blending
- Clean with a dust cloth to remove any remains of dust particles from the bodywork surface
- Prepare the color and additive for blending, DB-160
- Prepare two application guns: one with the color that we have obtained from a color reading, and the other with the DB-160 transparent additive that will facilitate the blending of the Dicrom color base.
- Apply the color coats until the area to be refinished is covered
- Apply a wet coat of DB-160 on the parts to be blended
- Immediately blend with a color coat
- Lastly, apply a coat of clear coat following the recommendations on the data sheet.
The following video we will show you the 6 steps for obtaining perfect blending with the Dicrom system.
After following these 6 steps to obtain perfect blending, the small difference of color tone that there may be between the bodywork parts is going to be imperceptible, leaving a fully homogeneous color without differences between adjacent parts.
