What’s the difference between paint types?

You may be wondering what the difference is between a gloss, pearl, or metallic paint – or why that even matters. The difference is in how the paint is designed, and what is in the paint. When creating paint for cars, manufacturers often mix the paint with flakes of synthetic materials so that the paint captures and reflects light in different ways, making for more interesting effects on the car. Some effects cause the paint to glitter in the sun, while other effects subtly change the colour of the car depending on the angle you look at it, and some effects create a subtle depth to the paint colour, similar to a glowing effect.

The most standard paint type is a Gloss paint. Gloss paints usually come as deep reds, bright blues, oranges and golds. For Gloss finishes, it isn’t about what’s in the paint but rather what’s on top of it – a high-gloss clear coat. This high gloss finish gives the paint durability as well as a shiny, glossy finish you’d imagine.

Metallic finishes are done by using very small flakes of metal, typically aluminium, to give the paint a more obvious sparkle. The flakes are all the same size and mixed in even parts with the paint itself. This effect gives the car a metallic, glittery shine that does not change the colour of the paint.

Pearl finishes are paint mixed with small synthetically produced mica, which has a sheen similar to that of a natural pearl. These give the car a colour that appears to change slightly as you look at it from different perspectives, giving an illusion of shaded or illuminated areas, depending on the lighting.
