However, to what extent do these differences have implications for the results? The Cintamobil.com team will try to find out how significant the difference is in the results of the paints in the official workshops Daihatsu machine vs factory painting.
Daihatsu car paint in the workshop has 5 stages
When you submit a body repair job to an official Daihatsu workshop, there will be 5 steps to perform. “The painting process in the Aftermarket has five stages,” said Supardi Gito Martana, as Instructure Painting Trainer at Daihatsu Training Canter.
In addition, the man named Pardi also added: “The first is the Putty application, followed by Surfacer, the third step is Color Matching by matching the paint code,” added Pardi. The next two processes are the top coating process followed by the finishing process.
“The finishing process is body polishing, but this body polishing does not have to be done if in the Top Coating process the desired color conforms to the standard,” said Pardi, greeting the team with familiar from Supardi Gito Martana. Cintamobil.com.
Complete robotic factory
While in the factory there are four painting stages at the PT Astra Daihatsu Motor plant. The first is the Cleaning> Phospating process, the second is the Anti Rust> ED process, the third is the Surfacer & Sealing process and the last is the Top Coating process.
Process cleaning> Phosphating is a cleaning process as well as the process of imparting / clearing the car’s base layer to prevent rust. After the Cleaning> Phosphating process, we continue with the ED Inspection process.
Next is the Sealer process which is the process of closing the plate connection to prevent leakage / rust. Now the last one is the Top Coat process, which is a process of giving color to the car body that is done robotically for aesthetics.
The quality is maintained
But you don’t have to worry if the painting at Daihatsu official workshop won’t be as clean as the factory output. “The painting process will be carried out until it is close to the original likeness,” concluded Pardi. This means that it is guaranteed that the paint quality in every official Daihatsu workshop will be maintained and of a high quality that will approach the results of the factory paint job.
