Their new method removes the need for a separate primer coat by combining it with one of the base coats, with the primer being incorporated within the first layer of the two base coats. As with the previous method, a clear coat is applied at the last stage.

We know that it fully conforms to the high optical and functional quality standards of our products. Its long-term quality is guaranteed.”
