currently the most advanced form of protection that can be applied
to a vehicle. Coatings use nano technology to apply a thin layer of ultra hard and resistant
ceramic particles on top of your paint coat. This layer binds permanently to your paint and will give protection for
years to come. The only way currently known to remove this protective layer is to use sandpaper
compounding. In other words, it will stay there until you decide to remove it. This
coating can be applied to paint, wheels, plastics, metals and even windows. The only place it is not recommended
for is the windshield. The typical durability of this
coating is 2 years or more. At which point it will
start to loose it's water beading and protective
qualities. We have seen vehicles having coatings
last 5 years or more, it depends on how the vehicle is
maintained and the exposure it gets to the elements.
very similar to waxes but have two major difference. They are
synthetic and are made of various man made ingredients like polymers and silicones. Their
advantage is to offer protection that will last much longer than waxes. A typical sealant will last from six
months to a year. We
recommend sealing the paint twice a year. Once in the fall to prepare the vehicle for the harsh conditions of winter.
And once in the spring to restore the protection that will have been damaged or removed during winter.
Where a sealant
is a man made product, waxes are natural and come from palm trees in
south America. Waxes will offer a protection lasting from 4 to
Their major advantage is to enhance the shine of the vehicle and offer additional protection to the
existing sealant layer. Wax can be used on their own but be aware that their protection is vulnerable to rain, sun and
touch. So if your vehicle sits outside most of the time, your wax coat
can degrade very quickly. We suggest
you do a full wax once per season and use a quick wax (spray wax) every time you wash the vehicle (usually once a week)
to restore the protective layer.
