Not all finishes are glossy, we have some makes that are dull on purpose we like to call these mattes. The color code for vehicles and the name of the color for motorcycles don't just pull up the information of the color but the finish as well. That's right your color identifier will also describe whether or not your finish is gloss or flat and more specifically what level of matte.
Mattes just like gloss clear coat can change the shade of the base coat (color) once applied, typically fogging up the finish which in many cases lightens the color. Unfortunately we cannot show you because the difference in shades is more noticeable in person but here are the five levels of matte clear coats we offer:
As you can see the higher the number the glossier the clear get. Each color code pulls up a formula and information such as what type of clear coat your color needs, if you are unsure please ask one of our representative just have your color information ready.
