What is Paint Protection and how does it work?
Paint Protection is an aftermarket product which is applied to the exterior paint of your car to provide a protective barrier against environmental contaminants such as bird droppings, tree sap, exhaust fumes and so on. If contaminants do etch into the surface it will be the protective coating which will be affected and not the factory clear coat/paint.
Will it affect the finish or colour of the paint?
Some paint protection products come as a cream based sealant and once cured can actually hide or reduce the amount of shine and reflectiveness that comes from your metallic paint.
Our paint protection product is a clear polymer resin which bonds and conforms to the painted surface and provides the paint with extra gloss and ultimate protection.
Can it be applied to used vehicles?
Yes, but it is highly recommended that a detailed paint de-contamination and correction process be carried out before hand to ensure that the paint is 100% contaminant free and also that the paint is to a condition that the owner is happy with because one the protective coating is applied it will lock in the finish.
What are the noticeable benefits of Paint Protection?
The main thing you will notice with paint protection is when you wash the vehicle most of the water will either sheet off the car or bead on the surface. This makes drying the vehicle a whole lot easier.
Another noticeable aspect is that you will find it easier to clean off things such as bird droppings, bug splatter, dirt and exhaust fumes from the paint with minimal effort.
How long does it take to apply?
The actual application of the protective coating averages roughly 2-3 hours to apply. However, all the necessary preparation of the vehicle that is carried out such as washing, de-waxing, contamination removal and any paint enhancements or corrections can take at least an additional 5 or more hours.
