    Matt clear

    Ive got an aluminium dashboard with a brushed finish and I want to keep it looking clean, and not mark with finger prints etc . Are there any matt clears or coatings that will adhere to bare aluminium and protect it? Ive been told that clear adhesion promoter would work, but have read that theyre normally coated with a 2k paint

    i've painted normal 2k clear on polished metal parts many times in the past. i never had any issues with flaking/peeling at all and the brushed finish should provide much better adhesion. only if it's chipped and not touched in straight away will you have problems. just add some matting agent to the clear to get the finish you want and go for it.
    cheers, neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    I recently painted my van in matt 2k,
    No need to add a matting agent, it comes as a matt product from my supplier,
    Was advised to mix it at 3 parts matt 2k to only 1 part hardener to slow the curing or it may come out with a slight sheen,
    It gave the finish i wanted, to purely coat the 57 year old dead cellulose to still look dead but protected.
