How it Works
Our proprietary 3-Step process, APPLY-LEVEL-BLEND, is a simple extremely effective system used extensively by professionals in the commercial touchup industry to repair minor paint chip and scratch damage to used car dealership’s inventory of cars. The Dr. ColorChip™ process offers far superior results than what can be achieved using the traditional touchup paint pen or brush cap bottle of touchup paint typically offered through retail stores, car dealerships and other touch up paint providers. Our paint is designed to dry within minutes yet remain pliable so that the paint can be manipulated and flattened over chips and deeps scratches. The excess paint can then be quickly blended away using our proprietary Sealact™ blending solution leaving paint only in the chips. The end result is a professional permanent repair. Since 2003, the Dr. ColorChip™ system has been used on millions of vehicles with proven consistent results! Backed by a long history of customer satisfaction and excellent customer service and support, the Dr. ColorChip™ team will deliver results for you.
STEP 1: Apply the paint with either a brush, pipette or by squeezing droplets of paint from the touchup bottle through the flip top applicator. It is important to apply the paint NEXT TO THE CHIP AND NOT DIRECTLY ON THE CHIP so that when you proceed to STEP 2 and level the paint flat and flush across the chip, the paint will naturally fall into the chip or deep scratch and be smooth and level.
STEP 2: Level the paint into the chip or scratch using either the squeegee, Ultra brush or by lightly swiping the paint across the chip using the flat side of your gloved thumb or finger. Don’t press down when swiping the paint over the chip as this could cause the paint to be pressed out of the chip. Very light pressure works best to create a level fill. If desired repeat Step 1 until desired fill is achieved. Allow two(2) hours between applications to give the first layer time to harden. The level of the fill will always remain slightly below the surface of the original paint but can be built up with multiple applications. Once the paint is leveled flat across the chip allow a couple minutes for the paint to dry to the touch. If you touch the paint and it sticks to your glove or still is tacky or wet….let it dry for another minute or two. DO NOT TRY TO FILL THE CHIP ABOVE THE SURFACE LEVEL OF THE CAR’S ORIGINAL PAINT. With our process the paint needs to be leveled flat to prevent pulling the paint from the chip when performing the final Sealact™ blending step of the process.
STEP 3: Blend away the dried excess paint on the clearcoat surrounding the repaired area using our Sealact™ blending solution. Vigorously shake the Sealact™ bottle for 10 seconds to evenly mix the solution. Flip open the cap and squeeze enough Sealact™ to moisten about a one inch square section of the white lint free wiping cloth. A cotton t-shirt rag can be used as a replacement if needed. Remember to shake the Sealact™ prior to dispensing onto the wiping cloth. The components in the Sealact™ separate quickly and must be consistently mixed for the process to work properly. Moisten the white wiping cloth with the Sealact™. With a rapid back and forth motion and very light pressure wipe over the dried paint on on the car. BE PATIENT and allow the Sealact™ to do the work…..within about 30-45 seconds you will slowly begin to see the excess paint soften, dissolve and pull away from the car’s panel. If you apply too much pressure you can pull paint from the chip. If this happens repeat the process using less pressure. If the paint grabs to the wiping cloth, add extra Sealact™ to keep the cloth lightly lubricated. Once the excess paint is visually removed from around the chip ….STOP BLENDING and immediately buff the area clean with a microfiber towel or soft cloth. This will remove any surface haze from the leftover Sealact™ or paint residue on the car. It is safe once the blending step is completed to drive the car. Rain and even a quick hand wipe of the panel with a quick detail product will not impact the repairs. Paint manufacturers will typically tell you that paint needs 30 days to fully cure. We do recommend allowing the paint this 30 day cure time before doing any aggressive compounding with a rotary buffer or application of a ceramic coating.
