Deciding between car paint colors can be a daunting task for the casual car or bike owner trying to choose that perfect color for their ride. There are literally more than 60,000 auto paint colors available on the market and at some point each of those colors was considered to be an “in” color. It’s easy enough to recognize a color you like. In fact, it’s often easy to recognize LOTS of colors you like. Narrowing down the pool of colors to make a final choice can be challenging.

Metallic Colors

Metallic car paint colors are colors which have a sparkle to them originating from a finely ground metallic aluminum pigment. This metallic pigment gives paints a sparkle with numerous variations in sparkle size and and brightness based on the type of metallic pigment used. Combining these metallic pigments with a wide range of transparent pigments yields thousands of distinctly different car paint colors. From an application standpoint metallic paints can range from very easy to apply to more challenging depending on the color chosen. As a general rule, lighter colored metallic paints are more difficult to apply evenly than darker ones. Relatively speaking durability of metallic paints is good to excellent depending on the system used and color. Metallic paints are often confused with metal flake paint which is a very different type of sparkling paint color which will be discussed later in more detail.

Pearl Car Paint Colors

Pearl Paint Colors with colored shimmers are made by combining special pigments called pearlescent pigments with traditional transparent pigments. Unlike metallic colors whose sparkle is based on a silver aluminum platelet, pearls are available in a wide range of sparkle colors and sizes. As such, pearl colors are said to have more “color depth” than the average car paint color. Pearl colors can be 2 stage where a pearl base color is applied then cleared or a 3 stage system where a solid base color is applied, then a pearl midcoat, and a protective clearcoat. Lighter colored pearl car paint colors tend to be more transparent than lighter colored metallic shades and as such many pearl car colors require a uniform color underneath since the lighter pearl color is likely not to hide color differences beneath. In fact many light colored pearl colors such as white pearls require a specific base color underneath making them a true 3 stage color. On the contrast, darker and medium shades are well suited for 2 stage applications and often will cover or hide the surface beneath well. From an application stand point 2 stage pearls are comparable to their metallic counterparts in ease of application but 3 stage pearls are often more challenging due to the transparent nature of the pearl midcoat. The durability of pearl finishes is generally comparable to that of metallics colors. To learn more about pearl colors visit our pearl colors page in the colors menu above.
