    Take a look at any car and the color is probably the first thing you'll notice. Because of this, automakers know that paint is an essential part to a car's aesthetic. But have you ever wondered how much time and effort goes into creating that shiny finish? Why does paint on a luxury car cost so much more than a normal car? In today's episode, we'll explain the chemical make up of automotive paint including its basic ingredients, the importance of pigments in the paint development process, and what separates a high quality paint from an average one.

Interesting, I've worked at Dupont and we made black automotive paint that was $250/pint. Hughes Hues or something like that, idk I just ran it never used it. This was nothing compared to the government contracts though. What we charged department stores like Lowe's for a particular paint was $25/gallon. That same paint was sold to the government for $125/gallon bc they like to overpay with taxpayer money. 🤘

Literally called finishmasters last week to get a quote on 6 quarts of structural blue Lexus paint and we had to go thru the chain of command, up to PPG corporate and they wouldnt give me a price without a VIN. And they said the factory in Ohio didnt have enough to make more than a pint. AND they priced it out at like $1,800 a pint.

I've painted a lot with both the 22 series and 90 series paints by Glasurit. Another note to remark about the Glasurit lines of paints is that they're also made for ease of use and learning them is alot easier than other paints. A Glasurit 22 line beige and a Glasurit 22 line black color will behave similarly when being sprayed onto a panel. They balance the ratios of ingredients so that all paints feel the same to put down and they also make sure they cover similarly across the board. However in my experiences with other brands such as Spies Heckler Permasolid line I tried two colors, a black one and a beige one. The black color had an ok surface tension flow but they beige one had a very high chance of making runs, the fact that when painting with Spies Heckler I had to learn myself how to thin out the beige color to stop it from making it run was very irritating. Other brand such as Spies Heckler permasolid behave extremely differently even though they work the same as the 22 line from Glasurit. I have a lot experiences with other brands and a confidence to say that if you get to learn glasurit it is by far the best paint option on the market, both for the hobby market and the professional one. And before anyone asks what paintgun I use I have two SATAjet 4000 B RP digital 1.3. One for Clear coats and solvent paints, and another for Water based paints. Just my two cents.

This video is absolutely incredible! I knew paint is complicated, that spectrometers were used to generate a paint code, and that paint code was put into a computer which then tells you what ingredients to put and how much. You then go up to a huge rack of ingredients and use a super accurate weighing scale to measure each ingredient and mix. Even a slight deviation messes the paint up. I had no idea that two slightly different shades of the same colour could have a 10x difference in price. I live in India. Over here most non-dealership body shops are tiny independant set-ups that can't really afford spectrometers or paint booths. When they need a particular paint, they usually take the fuel tank lid to a paint distributor who uses a spectrometer and makes the mix. Most paint shops don't put in the effort to carefully mix the paint exactly as specified by the software, so there is almost always at least a minor difference in the new paint and old one. The dealerships usually have all the equipment and ingredients and do try their best to mix the paint properly but in most cases a trained eye can spot what panels on a car have been repainted. The exception is only with the luxury car dealerships, because they usually have super expensive fully automated paint mixers that are 100 percent accurate with the ingredient measurement. Depending on the car type, brand and size, dealerships typically repaint an entire car for between USD 1,000 and 2,000. The independent body shops can do it for USD 250 to 600, but you can be pretty sure the paint will be noticeably different from the original, and quite likely begin to fade in a year. Sometimes they do such a bad job that the paint will begin to crack in the summer and form a kind of mosaic pattern.

Bit of misinformation in the "red is the most expensive pigment" part there. Red iron-oxide is actually one of the cheaper pigments, and it doesn't make for bright and vibrant colours. It usually looks a bit dull, even with the highest grades you don't manage more than a blood red. The pigments that are used to make vibrant reds are organic pigments that are synthesized, and the ones that are lightfast are kinda hard to make and often don't achieve the hiding power that inorganic pigments do, so you need even more of it if you want an opaque, bright vibrant red tone. costly production + more pigment = more expensive paint
