What Is Flat Matte Paint?

Flat, also referred to as matte paint, is a finish that is the opposite of shiny.  It’s opaque.  This type of finish gives your car a military style look.  It is a new trend that will make your car look more modern, sleek, and luxurious.

Why would you want to have your car painted flat?

If you want something different from the ordinary, having a matte color finish is a great option.  There are those who like to paint racing stripes on their cars, those who paint their car’s rims, and then there are those who like the entire car color to really be different from all the rest.

For one thing, a flat finish requires the same care as a glossy finish.  The only difference is that you won’t need to wax it.  You’ll want to use products specially formulated for this type of finish and it should last the life of your car.  If you want to know what other options you have and the maintenance to keep matte finishes looking good, this resource article is for you.

“Long overdue review but better late than never! Took my Infiniti G35 sedan here before for a complete paint job since the original clear coat was peeling in several locations and it was time for a refresh. Ended up painting the car satin black. Jaider was more than helpful and had the vehicle complete in a timely manner despite being a busy shop! Great shop, I have several friends that had work done to their vehicles here as well and looked flawless. Would highly recommend getting work done here whether it be insurance or aftermarket/custom related.”
