Displaying 3 Tech Tips for category: ‘Paraglaze’

Swelling of OE Waterborne Basecoat

In their production line paint process, most new vehicle manufacturers now use a waterborne basecoat. This layer is very solvent sensitive so exposure to products containing solvent during the refinish process generally results in unwanted swelling and ringing around the repair area.


Priming Blasted Steel Surfaces

In the CT refinish sector, bead blasting is a common method of preparing metal surfaces by removing rust, old paint and other unwanted materials. However, in many situations that ‘blasted profile’ then needs to be flattened to leave a smooth surface finish. With the launch of Paraglaze CT, Protec customers how have an excellent option to do just that, thanks to the new 1K High Build Primer (PP-4660).


Go Fast in the Cold

One of the big advantages to come with the launch of the new Carmaster and Paraglaze ranges is the option of three different hardeners and reducers. They allow you to modify the application characteristics to suit the environment in which you’re spraying it.
