MPEX Car Paint: Colour with Confidence

Finding exactly the right shade of paint to repair damage to the paintwork of a vehicle can be difficult but here at Motornuts we take all the guesswork out of the equation. Our new partnership with MPEX allows us to supply car paint in over 77,000 different tones including RAL, BS and Pantone colours. Whether you need to repair a small scratch or want to transform your vehicle with a full respray, you'll find the right product on our website.

So, why is there so much difficulty with exact shade matching in the first place? The problem is in the paint itself. Many paints are 2k non-air dried which means that they give a much lower level of accuracy in colour matching. Such paints are prone to chemical reactions and are vulnerable to contamination, both of which issues further complicate the colour matching process.

MPEX paint is a 1k air-dried paint and is therefore of the highest, most professional quality. The formula is manufactured using a tinter system, guaranteeing a precise match every time. Even if you don't know the paint code for your car's paintwork, simply entering your registration number on our website will ensure you get the right colour.

This quality paint is available in three different package size options:

  • Touch-Up Pen: designed for high-precision, the touch-up pen is ideal for repairing small scratches
  • Touch-Up Bottle: if your paintwork has a scratch or chip with a width exceeding 3mm, we recommend using the touch-up pot. Comes complete with a fine, flat brush for perfect results every time
  • Aerosol: for bigger jobs, right up to a complete respray, use the colour-matched aerosol. Its adjustable nozzle will give a body shop quality finish

To help you make the right decisions when it comes to buying colour-matched paint, we have created a list of FAQs and the answers to them. Check out our website for all the info.
