PAINT PROTECTION

Evolutionary protection for your investment.

Every day, the body of a car, truck, or RV is exposed to weather elements. Individual components like tree sap, road tar, ultraviolet sun rays, rain, and bird droppings can damage the paint on your car. The damage is typically due to oxidation — which slowly eats the chemicals found in paint until it begins to separate from the body. By applying paint protection it helps to protect the body from exposure to these harmful elements so it will hold up against time.

All of these issues can damage the paint, which means you’ll have to repaint your car if you want it looking like new. This is especially important if you plan to sell it any time soon, as paint condition is a top reselling factor. Paint protection adds an exra layer that will take on any damage so your paint doesn’t have to. If you’re looking for a way to protect your car from scratches and chips in the paint, it's the way to go. Each type of protection has its own unique gloss enhancement that pulls away the dull and faded look.

Applying a protective barrier on the surface means you’re making it harder for dirt, tree sap, insects, and other debris to stick to the car. This is because anything that tries to stick to your car is not actually making contact with the paint, thanks to the protective layer. That makes washes an easy task without worrying about scratches and swirls. Protect your paint from fading, corrosion and damages.

Below are a few different types of paint protection we offer. Each type differing in durability and lifespan

Carnauba Wax

Automotive wax is a combined blend of carnauba mixed with other natural oils, like beeswax. These ingredients allow wax to be used as a protectant and shine enhancer. When car wax is applied, it provides a thin layer of protection to the clear coat and has 1 to 3 months of durability.

 

Wax polishes the clear coat and brings out the color and shine of the car. Secondly, city dust and atmospheric fallout tend to damage your paint in various ways. A microscopically thin layer of wax on top of the paint prevents or reduces damaging chemical interactions with these pollutants. Natural car waxes tend to give more of a warmer gloss compared to sealants.

Synthetic Paint Sealant

Since paint sealants utilize polymer technology and synthetic ingredients, their life expectancy hovers around 6–12 months of durability! Paint sealants have solid hydrophobic (water repelling) properties. Standing water, dirt and debris, mud, soap residue, and more all roll of this stuff, thus making hand washing and drying a breeze.

 

When the solution cures, the remaining polymers form a bond with each other and with the clear coat, producing a soft shield coating on top of the paint. This is a slight upgrade over wax in terms of lifespan and the hydrophobic properties. Paint sealants tend to give more of a colder gloss compared to waxes.

*Synthetic sealants typically needs to cure for at least 6 to 12 hours.

Ceramic Coating

2-3x harder than clear coat, ceramic coating is a long-term nanoscopic protectant that is applied in a liquid form and cures to form a hard layer on top of the paint. Essentially, it's the candy shell that protects the paint's delicious center.

Ceramic coating is typically composed of silicon dioxide which is sourced from natural materials such as quartz and sand, mixed together with titanium dioxide as an additional hardening agent. When applied to a car's paint, the two create a chemical bond with hydrophobic, aka water-repellent, properties. The properties of the shield makes it harder for environmental paint hazards to stick to the surface and protects it from blemishes and damage while keeping it cleaner for longer. With Self cleaning properties, the ceramic shield creates intense water beading and dirt run-off to make car washes a breeze!

Chemical resistant and equipped with the highest form of UV protection, Ceramic coating is your ultimate form of paint protection. With options that range from 2, 4 and even up to 8 years of durability! Ceramic coatings tend to give more of a candy gloss compared to other protectants.

*Ceramic coating typically needs to cure for at least 12 to 24 hours.

Graphene Coating

What if ceramic coating had a PLUS+ version of it?

It does! Ceramic Coating + Reduced Graphene Oxide. Graphite coatings are the latest technological advancement to hit the automotive detailing market. The slickness factor of graphene is extremely high making it comparable to some of the best coatings and sealants on the market. If you’re a fan of that water beading effect then you’ll love graphene. 

 

Without getting too technical, Graphene is the name for an atom-thick honeycomb sheet of carbon atoms. ”Harder than diamond yet more elastic than rubber; tougher than steel yet lighter than aluminum”. Apparently, Graphene is the strongest material known to man. The next generation of protection for your entire vehicle is here, providing 10H hardness, 10+ years of durability even in the harshest conditions!  Outstanding water beading and slickness that makes water almost jump off the surface so water spotting is much less likely due to increased hydrophobic properties. Graphene coatings tend to give more of a candy gloss compared to other protectants.

*Graphite coating typically needs to cure for at least 24 hours.
