New Spies Hecker Permahyd® Silver Star Base Coat contains extra-fine effect pigments which is perfect for the painting of rims and add-on parts such as mirror housings. "Such vehicle parts are usually coated in extremely fine shades of silver. With Silver Star base coat, Spies Hecker now has an excellent material for paintwork repairs and original finishes," explains Frank Barduna, Technical Manager at Spies Hecker.

There's a trend towards shades of silver. "New Silver Star is our response to bodyshop demand for a bright and fine shade of silver," the expert stresses. "The microscopic metal pigments yield a smooth, aluminium-like gloss. Refinishers achieve the brightest effects if they spray a film of clear coat straight onto the surfacer before base coat application and then lightly sand the surface to prevent the effect from being marred by variations in substrate texture." The VOC-compliant base coat can be recoated with any Permasolid clear coat applied in 1.5 coats. Fine, noble and bright, new Permahyd® Silver Star Base Coat from Spies Hecker is the ideal refinish solution for vehicle parts with special requirements.
