What is sanding control color / dry coat guide?
A dry coat guide makes visible scratches and unevenness in the surface. Most applicators have flexible edges that make it easy to use on contoured areas. A good tool to guide you through the sanding process and achieve a perfect result before painting.
Make you see scratches and unevenness
Control color (dry guide coat) is colored powder that fills in scratches, dents and small holes, so that you can see with the naked eye where sanding is most needed. Using control color is a simple, cheap and effective way to find surface defects before sanding. Control color is a layer of powder or paint that can be used on putty, filler, primer, paint and gel coats and is recommended for use when working in the automotive or marine industries.
Is sanding dry coat necessary?
The short answer is yes. Control paint is necessary when you do body work or want to achieve a nice finish on your surface. The process of achieving an even result starts from the metal up, but unevenness must be corrected during the filling and priming stages. By using control paint you can see how far you have come and save yourself some unpleasant surprises when the vehicle is painted and finished.
Achieve a nice surface before varnishing
A control color simply helps you achieve a perfectly smooth result before varnishing and applying topcoat. Depending on the color of your project, you will need a control color that is easy to see. Fortunately, we carry the right range of control colors for maximum visibility.
