Matt Clear System from Glasurit

The increasing trend for matt finishes is seeing leading vehicle manufacturers offering a wide variable of gloss levels from matt finishes, to silky satins, particularly on special editions such as the Mercedes-Benz Grand Edition as part of its “designo” programme of exclusive customer options.

Glasurit played a vital role in the development of these special finishes at OEM level and has applied this expertise to the refinish market with the Glasurit Matt Clear System which enables bodyshops to reproduce an infinite range of reduced gloss levels by using just two intermixable matt clears.

The versatility is further enhanced as the matt clears can also be intermixed with 923-335 clearcoat, which Glasurit users already have in their paintshops, to achieve the higher gloss unit level.

The Glasurit Matt Clear System is a simple, efficient solution that enables bodyshops to match any gloss level quickly, easily and accurately from the deepest matt to the softest satin finish.

Matt Swatch to support identification of the right gloss level
Defined mixing ratios achieve gloss units from 12 to 65 gloss units.

The Matt Clear Swatch contains seven different matt shades on transparent, white and black surfaces and enables the user to identify the correct matt level directly on the damaged area of the car. With the matt level shown on the chip the painter can easily and quickly identify the corresponding mixing formula. The swatch can also be used to visualise different matt shades over existing paint work.

The Glasurit Matt Clear System is the simplest, most efficient and effective solution for professional bodyshops to provide an accurate match of the original matt clear.
