Ceramic, Glass & Nano Coatings

Please note although it is not imperative, it is highly recommended that ceramic coatings are only applied to new or corrected paintwork. Ceramic coatings do not fill / mask the appearance of swirl marks and other paint defects, so if these are not removed prior to application, they will be sealed in for a long time! Coatings must be applied in a controlled environment and allowed to cure fully / properly for 24 hours before they are exposed to the elements. This service is only available at my unit in Billingshurst (RH14), West Sussex.

Why opt for a coating over a wax?

  • Anti scratch effect – helps to resist wash marring and light swirling.
  • Antioxidant – prevents colours from fading / bleaching.
  • Anti static – less dust build up in dry conditions.
  • Anti acids and salts – ideal for Winter – prevents road salt from sticking to the paintwork.
  • Excellent high gloss effect – mirror finish – unrivalled gloss & clarity.
  • Hydrophobic/Water-repelling – fantastic, aesthetically appealing water beading & sheeting.
  • Anti Calcium effect – prevents water spot etching. Water spotting can be an issue with some coatings on the market. All of the coatings I offer have been extensively tested and do not leave problematic water spot etchings that require machine polishing to remove them.
  • Dirt-deflecting – paintwork stays cleaner for longer.
  • Easy to clean/self cleaning effect – simple future maintenance & upkeep.
  • Weather protection
  • UV – weather-resistant
  • Insects and flies repellent – a godsend in the Summer!
  • No more waxing! – Unlike many of the sealant packages that dealerships offer you, this will not come with a maintenance ‘bundle’ and neither will it require it.
  • Preserve car value & condition – a well maintained & presented car will hold it’s resale value better and can fetch hundreds, in some cases even thousands of pounds more than a similar car in lesser condition.

Gyeon Q2 CanCoat – £75:

CanCoat is an advanced quartz coating that simultaneously protects and enhances the appearance of automotive paint. Developed in South Korea, Gyeon CanCoat uses the latest in low volatile content silicon (Si) technology to lay down a film of siloxane polymers that condense rapidly to form an SiO2 coating that bonds to painted surfaces at the molecular level.

As a result of being coated with a smooth, dense layer of SiO2, treated surfaces become naturally water hating (hydrophobic), which causes rainfall and rinse water to bead up and roll off very quickly. This extreme beading not only looks good, but also tends to pick up and carry away fresh contaminants, which makes routine washing easier and safer as a result. In addition to these benefits, CanCoat also provides excellent protection against bird droppings, bug splatter, road salt and harmful UV radiation for up to six months at a time, even on daily drivers (it is virtually impervious to cleaning chemicals and pressure washing, and once fully cured can only be removed by machine polishing).

 

  • Hydrophobic
  • 6-8 months durability
  • High chemical resistance
