Maintaining Old & Porous Paint Jobs
Professional paint job maintenance using state-of-the-art technology.

As auto paint ages, it becomes porous. When new paint is applied to the surface it has a tendency to soak into the old finish causing uneven color and gloss effects. Sealers provide a uniform base so the new paint sets up evenly with good "hold-out" from the old finish. This gives consistent color and gloss throughout the entire painted surface. Primer sealer also provides an excellent material for the new paint to chemically bond to, thereby insuring good adhesion.
