Undercoat colours 4.1. Cataphoretic treatment
Colour used in manufacture : Mid grey
Replacement Parts colour : Mid or dark grey
The repairer must redo the under-coat in zones that no longer have a top coat, in the case of replacement (surfaces bared for welding) or of re-coating of certain structural components (particularly under the bonnet)
In this case, he should use a coloured primer as close as possible to the original colour
Coloured primers close to the topcoat colour are applied at the factory
The aim is to substantially reduce the negative visual effects of stone chip impacts
These coloured undercoatings also offer the benefit of improving the colour result in the case of colours with poor covering power (reducing the number of topcoats required) .
Minimum thickness of the primer coat, whatever the colour:
30 microns in the zones not, or only slightly, exposed to gravel chipping
45 microns in zones exposed to stone chipping (front panel components, roof front part, lower parts of side components)
All the exterior surfaces are coated with primer
On the interior surfaces, the paint finish is applied directly onto the cataphoresis
Paintable or coloured primers are also available from Citroen approved suppliers for repair painting
Repairers are advised to use these suppliers to obtain the colours that are specific to the vehicles they are repairing
