Why Some Factory Bumpers Don’t Match – Mobile Bumper Repair

Facts On Bumper Color – Mobile Bumper / Scratch Paint Repair

This post is to inform the public why the factory original color of bumper and trim pieces may not match the rest of the vehicle from the start.

Causes of Color Variations:

#1 A color can vary depending on the substrate on which it is painted. For example, the evaporation rate for solvent varies over metal or plastic. A longer rate gives a flake pigment additional time to “float” and can darken the face of the color.

#2 The body was painted on a production line at the factory, while other parts, such as the bumper and trim were painted at another location using a different application method.

#3 Slight adjustments can be made during application creating a lighter or darker color, causing the metallics or mica elements to lay down differently.

#4 Light reflects differently on curved and flat surfaces causing the appearance of a color shift.

In conclusion, repainting a plastic bumper might have the same effects. Although mobile bumper repair in general matches paint back to factory specifications, it is possible on same repair cases, there would be a slight color shift. This commonly happens with paint colors such as; pearl white, silver and other 3 stage tri coats.
