I thought it was a term designating a non polymer paint, where pigment is bound and deposited by a solvent, because I got a drop of gas on the tank and had to do it all over. I used that duplicolor perfectmatch touchup paint from rattle cans you see in department strores, but I get the impression anything that doesn't say enamel is basically useless as auto paint.
There are so many terms used so loosely in automotive paints that I don't really know what to think.
