    Was I dreaming when I read about a buffable ( for defect removal ) matte clear yet it remains matte? Was it R-M…Onyx? Anyone hear a rumour?

    o would be interested to hear input on this one

    i avoid matt clears for this very reason

    I am extremely anal about any nibs in paintwork

    I think there was a topic about this somewhere but it turned out you had to sand it very finely all over and leave it at that to achieve the nib free Matt finish.

    someone told me a year ago about ppg’s new matte clear that was supposed to be like this. i really dont believe this at all. sikkens has their new matte additive which is this clear jelly and probably the same basic thing as what ppg uses in their matte clear. its actually a resin which intermixes with the clear and its supposed to be flat all the way through the paint film. i spray alot of matte so ilast year they had me do some pre release testing on the stuff. it worked good but to test that it was flat all the way through i did try and buff it. while i didnt get it to a complete 100% shine like a gloss clear it did still buff out and make a shiny spot where i buffed. you would certainly not be able to denib it and buff the spot. it would be plain as day.

    It is in preliminary BASF testing. Ive seen it twice now at the North American Color lab, It is a brand new resin that BASF made specifically for this purpose. This is not anywhere close to the same technology that is in Akzo and PPG’s
