Looks good in arctic blue.I've had my Arctic Blue 2015 Desert Runner since June 2015 and have had no problems other than a few rock chips!! So far so good.
My friend is a chemist who worked in the Paint industry and when you ask a question the answer flies over my head. I asked him does blue paint have an issue with adhesion compared to other colors and short answer is yes. The full chemical makeup and complete answer lost me in the long explanation. As much as I like blue I skipped electric blue and all the blues since it.whats the deal with the blue color issues?
One would think paints are the same except for the pigment, I still don’t understand how the color affects it.hmm ok, but blue is like a top 3 color for many vehicles, including Tesla, I've never heard of issues with a specific color. Is that the issue though? people with blue Nissans the color peels off some how?
Color has an effect on other things as well. I remember watching a show on leather testing one of the major leather manufacturers for motorcycle suits does. They had this little machine that held pieces of leather in various colors on one side and adjacent to the leather was a plate that held what was effectively sand paper and they used this to simulate how the leathers would hold up in a slide. Inevitably, one color, I seem to recall red dyed leather, always had less abrasion resistance.One would think paints are the same except for the pigment, I still don’t understand how the color affects it.
