This specialist refinish course provides paint technicians with comprehensive skills for the preparation and application of Cromax three-stage finishes.
The course covers best practice methodology to achieve right-first-time results in these increasingly popular, but complex OEM finishes in an efficient manner.
Day one focuses on planning the repair. The day covers surface preparation for both metal and plastic substrates, the correct identification of the correct colour and finish and use of the right products. Paint technicians then learn to work out how many coats they need to apply. Finally, they get to prepare a series of let-down panels to test their approach.
On Day two, participants work on blending techniques. These are slightly different for three-stage coats to standard refinish repairs. Unlike a regular basecoat colour, tri-coats colours get darker with the number of coats. Tri-coats consist of a basecoat, a mid-coat to achieve the effect and a clearcoat. This is why let-down panels are so important. They allow refinishers to see exactly how many mid-coats are necessary to achieve the desired colour and effect.
By the end of the course, participants will have the skills to repair tri-coats easily and accurately with minimal outlay.
