What is the “Matte”?

G’day everyone!

Have you ever stopped to think how a vehicle with a matte paint can have a much more sophisticated appearance? Whenever we see a motorcycle or a car with a matte paint job, the impression we have of that characteristic is usually positive and often associated with something premium well finished.

In fact automakers add these features to the paintwork of their vehicles when they want to add an “added value” and consequently increase their sales. And this added value can be relatively high depending on the car and the automaker, with values ​​starting at $3000 but easily exceeding $5000.

On the top of that, once you have a vehicle with these characteristics, maintenance requires a lot of special care that, if not observed, can take away the beauty of the vehicle’s matte tone.
