Are METALLIC EFFECT colors the same as normal Montana GOLD colors?

Are METALLIC EFFECT colors as light fast as the other colors? Can I protect them?
The Montana METALLIC EFFECT colors do have superior lightfastness and contain UV blockers. However they are not as light fast as normal Montana GOLD colors, depending on the exposure to harmful UV rays. Montana METALLIC EFFECT colors will outlast the longevity of the other brands. You can protect and greatly extend the longevity of METALLIC EFFECT colors by applying a Montana Varnish over the finished work once it is cured.
Are the METALLIC EFFECT colors as opaque as other colors?
The Montana METALLIC EFFECT spray colors are superior in opacity compared to any other brands of metallic effect spray. Due to the metallic pigment being dispenced in a clear vehicle, multiple coats may be required to reach desired optic. The pre-coatings underneath the applied METALLIC EFFECT colors will also influence the appearance of opacity. Light metallic colors appear more opaque if applied to white/light substrates, dark metallic colors appear most opaque when applied to dark substrates (where possible).
Can I use Montana METALLIC EFFECT colors like any other Montana GOLD?
Yes. Once cured, Montana METALLIC EFFECT colors are intermixable and can be handled, painted over or re-coated with any other Montana GOLD. Please note that due to the greater pigment size, the METALLIC EFFECT colors do perform differently and have a standard O nozzle to deliver the pigment through the valve to minimise potential blockages.
Why do METALLIC EFFECT colors cost more?
As metallic pigments are literally flakes of metal that are colored, to produce them has greater costs as there are more steps to turn the raw materials into usuable, long lasting color.

Do METALLIC EFFECT colors have the same finish as other Montana chrome effect or normal Montana Gold colors?

The metallic particles in the METALLIC EFFECT sprays are visible once the paint is dry. Please note the ground color and it’s finish can influence the finish of METALLIC EFFECT colors that are applied over them.
How do I get the brightest result?
For best results, it is suggested to apply METALLIC EFFECT colors onto substrates that are non porous and coated white/dark colors (depending on color METALLIC EFFECT colors going to be used), before application. The more coats applied, the brighter and more long lasting the metallic effect. Please allow minimum 10+ minutes drying between each coat. Wet on wet application will diminish the metallic effect.
Can I paint my bike with METALLIC EFFECT sprays?
METALLIC EFFECT sprays are ideal for painting bikes or metal objects. For best results sand off top coats or return to bare metal. Clean surfaces of dust, oils and rust. Apply Montana METAL PRIMER for extra corrosion protection. Apply multiple coats of the desired METALLIC EFFECT color(s) once each layer has dried over night remembering to sand lightly between coats.
Will the finish be like a commercially painted bike?
Montana METALLIC EFFECT sprays are abrasion and weather proof. However due to the toxic nature of commercial grade paints used on factory painted bikes, for a commercial like finish we suggest multiple coats of Montana VARNISH on your cured object to increase it’s strength. For a commercial grade finish, a 2 component clear coat needs to be applied. (We suggest see a car bodywork professional for assistance with this).
