Default Matrix Paint System???

Can anyone tell me does Matrix produce any quality paints? I was talking with a guy today about painting my car and he said that he likes using Matrix products. He is a authorized sprayer for them and he told me that they would guarentee the paint for the lifetime that I owned the car. He mentioned using something called euro clear. I've been checking his work out for a while now and he does good work, but im just not sure about this Matrix paint.

If memory serves correctly, Matrix is a product of The Netherlands and is owned by(?) or marketed by Akzo Nobel (Sikkens) in North America. It is considered an economy line. I've never used Matrix, but all the reports I've heard on it are good. "Euro clear" is a common reference by 3-4 paint companies about their clearcoat. It has little actual meaning.

I have used some Matrix, comparable to PPG's OMNI line. I'll choose OMNI because of local support.

Its better than Omni.

I have not found one reducer or hardener that does not cross over
and can be used by Matrix to PPG and vice versa. Was thrown into
Matrix after the local PPG dealer closed shop and I had a good
amount of PPG left. Found on the net that it was a chemist or he
hired chemist to copy PPG's formula's. I still like PPG's 2021 better
than Matrix clears but the rest I can save money on.

Pretty sure they are based in Michigan. I have painted two trucks with Matrix products, very happy with them. When the time comes, for the Chevelle's paint, I will not shy away from Matrix.

How much does it cost? Are the cars in the pictures BC/CC or a single stage? Are those fleet colors? How can you compare the paint when all the info is left out.
