Applied finish - consists of two or three aqueous (water- based) pigmented base coat applications of semi-permeable polyurethane and then a clear aqueous (water- based) top coat is applied as the final stage of the finishing process, which usually includes additives to give it a soft feel (patina) and abrasion resistance, as well as a limited amount of ‘slide’ to assist in entering and exiting the vehicle

Cross-linking enhances the physical properties of water-based pigmentation (colour) and the urethane coating, which proceeds to form a chemical bond between the molecules, creating a resilient and very durable finish.
