There's more than one kind of aerosol clear coat?! Yes, and we offer both of them! What's the difference? Let me tell ya! 1k clear coat doesn't require a catalyst to harden; this means once this clear coat is applied to the surface, it will dry without any additives.
2k clear coat, unlike the 1k, requires a catalyst for the paint to harden; without the catalyst, the clear coat would never fully dry. Professional painters may prefer 2k clear because this provides better protection for certain applications. If you are one to go off-roading and expose your vehicle to extreme conditions, 2k will be your knight in shining armor.
It's important to note that once the catalyst has been "activated," you have a short window to use the product before it hardens. 2k clear coat is not intended for multiple uses. The kind of clear coat you should use depends on your individual needs. We find that most touch up projects are perfectly suited for 1k clears. If you are painting an area that you know is going to be exposed to harsh chemicals, then you will want a catalyzed (2k) clear coat.
