SEM Trim Black, it is like a satin finish, something like 30% gloss. Mimics the factory trim black real well.

That would make it a gloss finish.

I use this paint for a lot of things.... exterior trim ....frames .... engine compart,emts ....the inside of bike fenders ....etc.

It's a one shot deal, needing no primer, and the adhesion is very good.

I think you can buy it in either enamel or lacquer base.

It is meant to be an exterior finish for trim parts. It has been pretty tough, and I've never noticed it scratching easy, after using it for about 20 years on countless jobs. I use the lacquer formula, but I imagine both are good.
