Aquabase® Plus Translucent Blend Repair Process

Aquabase Plus Translucent Blend Repair ProcessIn this video, we will review the PPG recommended process for repairing translucent colors with the Aquabase® Plus waterborne refinish system.

Many OEM colors are considered to be translucent, providing a cleaner, more vibrant look than older technology pigmentation. In this video, we will review the PPG recommended process for repairing translucent colors with the Aquabase® Plus waterborne refinish system.

It is very important to understand the impact of spectral grays on your final color when working with translucent colors. The pigments used to formulate these type colors must be transparent to keep their vibrancy. When you try to paint a color like this in 1.5 coats or to full hiding, you lose clarity and color match. This demonstration will show the benefits of using a blended edge underneath a translucent color versus the defined edge of a sanded primer alone.
