Clear coat is, at its most basic, the uppermost layer of paint on a car that has no color. In other words, it’s transparent. It’s used to protect the colored layers beneath, helping to protect them from damage.
Clear coating is added to a vehicle during production. Because most manufacturers use water-based paint, it’s essential that this is protected by a clear coat barrier.
It’s a layer of resin that dries to a hard, invisible layer that prevents damage from UV rays, debris, dust, etc. It adds depth and shine to the paint below it, helping prevent color fade. It also means that minor imperfections—such as those caused by acid rain—can easily be buffed out.
Modern clear coating has been designed to be kinder to the environment, with reduced use of polluting solvents.
