Ferrari Debuts Low Bake Paint Finish10th August 2018
Ferrari Debuts Low Bake Paint Finish which is a new low-temperature paint process. It is designed to deliver better uniformity across parts of the vehicle. And also, to lower environmental impact.
In partnership with PPG industries, Ferrari developed a new paint finish is called “Low Cure” clear coats. It relies on a specially formulated clear coat. This allows Ferrari to bake the paint at 100 degrees instead of 150 degrees.
This paint process lowers the amount of energy required to paint a car. In addition, it reduces the environmental impact of the process. Ferrari says it wants to promote better cross-coat linking. It reduces the paint water permeability. As a result, it’s now possible to bake carbon-fire and body parts at the same time as the body shell. Therefore this helps to deliver better color continuity between parts of different materials.
The process has been completely industrialized for 61 different base-coat colors. It is created by combining different metallic pigments with a gloss or matte-accented clear coat.
