Cost of new car paint protection in Melbourne

How much does paint protection cost in Melbourne?

Many are obsessed at the price of paint protection for their new car before asking critical questions like – Product being used? Preparation involved? Who is applying my coating? And most importantly what benefits can I expect

We believe the benefits out way the initial paint protection cost dramatically! A vehicle that is not protected from the elements depreciates much quicker then a vehicle that is protected and will look cleaner, shinier for.

Car cleaning detailing protection, Best Paint Protection For New Cars

Environmental fallout, bird/bat droppings, acid rain and everything else the world will throw at your paint work will cause havoc and soon enough your beautiful new cars paint work will become and look weathered.

What we charge might not be the same as what others might charge but please consider the options and compare apples with apples

Compare apples with apples when it comes to paint protection options

We choose to use German made ceramics manufactured by Autotriz, we perform the very best paint preparation and we also choose to not skip any corners, resulting in a high gloss super smooth finish and the product being applied properly.

Many applicators quote on the vehicles make and cars value, we choose to price our jobs on the amount of work required and the size of the vehicle which will give us a clear understanding of how much product will be used.  Prices starts at $990 inc GST and approx time needed per vehicle is 6 – 7 hrs

On top of the necessary paint decontamination most new cars will only need a single stage paint correction and paint sterilisation before a ceramic coating can be applied to the exterior surfaces, although some new cars may require a dual stage paint correction.

Vehicles coming from overseas do have fall out that needs to be removed through a clay

In rare occurrences there is a need for a triple stage paint correction and this is mainly used for paint work that is full of deep scratches, paint fading, spider webbing and swirl marks.

What are the benefits of a nano ceramic paint protection

Coatings are great and can protects against the following:

  • Colour fading
  • Acid rain
  • Tree sap
  • Oxidation
  • Bug splatter
  • Brid droppings
  • Road grime
  • Harmful UV rays
  • Corrosion
  • Hard water staining
  • Lights scratches

Who is Melbourne mobile detailing?

Why choose Melbourne mobile detailing and paint protection?

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is George and I am small part of the group we are widely known as MMD (Melbourne Mobile Detailing), I have been a car detailer for approximately 15 years and the last 10 years have personally dedicated myself to specialize in aftermarket new car nano ceramic paint protection while my associates help out with generalized detailing and I offer training and support for multiple dealerships across Melbourne

Melbourne Mobile Detailing and paint protection enjoys touching base with our readers and always keep them up to date with what we can offer and what the future holds regarding advancements in coatings and especially any great news for nano ceramic paint protection and films. The paint protection we choose to use is a thermoplastic urethane base widely used on vulnerable painted automotive surfaces and other areas we prefer to use film such as front bumpers, hoods, side mirrors, door handle cavities and door edges. This method can offer superior protection of the car paint from stone chips, bug splatters, and minor abrasions.

Believe it or not we have many of our friends who ask us virtually every second day if we can coat their jet skies, boats, RV’s, cell phones, TV screens, and other various electronics… The answer is YES!!!  We can 🙂

Majority of the western world, America and Europe have been conventionally the largest consumers of nano ceramic paint protection films. However, rapid expansion economic development, particularly in China, has shifted the balance, thus Asia Pacific is anticipated to emerge as the leading market over the forecast period. The shift of automotive manufacturing to countries such as China, India, and Thailand has contributed towards the regional industry’s growth and Australia seems to be at the forefront of this movement. Who better to use when you need such services then the best in the industry dealing with the very best products by Autotriz – innovative surface creation

Paint protection can offer protection to car paint from sand, road debris, bug acids and other harsh conditions that may damage your new car finish. These protective methods are made tough, transparent and conformable for long-term durability and extreme gloss while offering the advantage that it can treat any painted surface.

A great benefit of such products is it enables your vehicles lines and colour brilliance to show through without compromising the appearance, increasing pride of ownership and overall getting the very best return when its time to trade in for a newer model. The high-performance and extreme durability of these products ensures excellent adhesion to paint, yet is removable if required by specialist tools. Paint protection features are similar to a clear coat although is far more harder, glossier and offers the added bonus of ultraviolet (UV) protection that counteracts harmful UV rays and resists oxidization/aging.

You can be assured that paint protection maintains your car’s high-gloss look with minimal care, while helping to keep it’s looking better for longer time.​ ​

How is the paint protection market growing?​

The global paint protection market is expected to reach USD 1.49 billion by 2022 (This information was based on a quick google search and a few guestimates from others in online forums). The growth of the automotive industry coupled with rising consumer awareness regarding car protection is expected to remain key factors driving the market growth for this specific industry

Global paint protection market size was valued at USD 863.8 million in 2014. Rapidly expanding automotive industry particularly in emerging economies of Asia Pacific and Latin America is expected to remain a key driving factor for the global paint protection market.

 Why Melbourne mobile detailing and paint protection?​

MMD offers the very best options from Autotriz paint protection film. Not only are Autotriz products made in Germany but they are the pack leader in chemical advancements offering the very best combination for durability and clarity not previously available in the market.

Should I buy paint protection for my new car?

Purchased a new car now looking for paint protection in Melbourne?

Hello my name is George from Melbourne mobile detailing and after many years of specializing in aftermarket car paint protection and answering many questions on the topic I have decided to write up a little blog of the most common questions I get asked virtually every second day

I’m so confused.. Should I get paint protection and what’s the difference from all of the ones available?

Hard to believe but hundreds of cars, trucks and marine equipment are sold and delivered across Melbourne each and every week. During the purchasing and waiting for delivery process, prospective buyers and recipients of their new cars often are presented with some dilemmas and questions:

Some of these questions are as follows and we have tried to answer them the most honest and best way we could

Q – “What Is Paint Protection?

Paint protection is a loosely defined term that can easily be misused. Technically any sort of wax, sealant or spray that provides even a minor enhancement and minimal protection from the elements can be classed as a paint protection. This creates genuine confusion to the unknown and the more you inquire, the more it can get confusing and daunting offering misinterpreted idea of what paint protection really is.

Genuine ceramic protection is what professional detailers refer to as paint protection. Once the paint work has been decontaminated and corrected only then is when these high grade products can be applied offering a superficial layer that’s resistance to acid and alkaline attacks, water repellent, self cleaning and extremely scratch resistant. The advancing technology in this area has seen many great improvements in recent years and it just seems to be getting better each and every year

Q – “Should I get Paint Protection for the car? And if I do, which product do I choose? where do I find it? Who can I trust to install it properly? Should I consider the dealerships protection packages? There are so many options, where do I find the right answers?”

New car owners often get no information regarding the product to be applied on their cars or they find themselves bombarded by various paint protection options with too much information and having to filter through the various claims, we’ve decided to try and help by providing some information and removing some of the hype and myths along the way.

For many people we believe the words paint protection, teflon, ceramic, nano, diamond infused or coating is completely foreign and has little to no meaning. The dealership will be offering their own products meanwhile many paint protection specialists around Melbourne use a variety of products and each will believe theirs is the best and for various reasons. After a few phone calls or online inquiries you will have a handful of information to filter through and this can be extremely overwhelming

Please keep in mind that not all products are the same and every product out there has its pro’s and con’s. In order to understand the depth of this topic lets break it down to 2 easy methods of approach PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene, a synthetic sealant or in lamens terms Teflon or wax) and Glass, Quartz, Ceramics AKA coatings (Generally made up of nano particles derived from SIO2 Silica).

In Melbourne, majority of dealerships and possibly many car cleaners and detailers are using what we call (Synthetic Sealants) PTFE as their form of paint protection as it is cheap, quick and easy to use and looks great with a durability of a few months. Find out more about Synthetic Sealants, PTFE, Teflon paint protection here

Most synthetic sealants will be labelled with keywords like ‘PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) or polymer (resin compounds)’ and these are very important when it comes down to knowing, what type of protection is expected and longevity that can be offered by these products. Synthetic sealants and polymers are fantastic at what they were designed to do with the expectation to resist environmental elements for around 6-9 months. A fantastic improvement compared to waxes which can last anywhere from a few weeks to 3 months although just like waxes, these sealants and polymers are not resistant to chemical etching, salt water, UV light and offer very little resistance to scratching  and marring of the paint work. Ahead of its time and great when first released but sadly this technology is outdated and still used by many people in the aftermarket paint protection industry


Q – “The dealership or detailer is offering me a lifetime warranty? I’m so confused”

Just like every important aspect in life, always be sure to read the fine print as many of these warranties will have conditions like – The use of our own branded car wash is required, vehicle must be maintained on a regular basis, yearly reapplication or inspection is required and the list goes on, any clauses in these warranties are so broad and virtually offer no warranty or peace of mind to the consumer but it is more about protecting the product brand and the manufacturer. Please note it’s very important to realize that the lifetime warranty does not in any shape or fashion correlate to the lifespan of the product. These are two very different categories. If the product does not last longer than 3-5 years, it will likely require reapplication annually.

Potential buyers receiving this style of product should question the warranty and the product heavily. In simple terms “stay away from a PTFE or sealant that offers a lifetime warranty”

The solution to the unrealistic lifespan of synthetic sealants has come in the form of what we know them of as “coatings” and can be made up of different technologies including – liquid glass, SiO2, ceramic and quartz. Don’t loose track and start getting confused, they are all very similar with subtle differences and offer slight advantages to each other regardless of branding or labels. Most popular brands are fantastic and are superior in all forms versus the synthetic sealants being offered as a DIY paint protection.

There is also a handful of lesser known coatings available as well which are fantastic at what they do and offer a realistic approach and warranty terms compared to some over hyped popular brands out there

Q – “Do I really need paint protection?”

A high quality aftermarket ceramic paint protection applied by a professional detailer is a great investment. New age paint is thinner and less resistant to damage than ever before and I personally believe it is necessary to have a superficial layer offering protection to the elements and keeping your car cleaning for longer.

Q –  “Paint protection is a scam, you don’t need it, if it was so important then why don’t car manufactures have it applied before they deliver the car?”

The paint protection market is lucrative industry for manufactures and suppliers. Whenever there is a market where people get easily confused and do not fully understand the product, you will find what I call “sharks” in other words “scammers”.

As mentioned above the paint protection industry is full of hype and marketing claims that simply aren’t true. From lifetime warranties on PTFE sealants to 99H nuclear resistant super tough and bullet proof coatings. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to read between the lines

A lifetime of protection or a coating that is resistant to bullets or bricks being thrown at it, surely the “BS” bell rings loudly here.

In truth car manufacturers are price conscious and already apply a sealant to the paint work prior to delivery. Ceramic coatings can be ultra expensive and simply put, having this applied on every delivered vehicle not only will be a very time consuming effort but will also blow the budget. So it is your responsibility on how you want to maintain your vehicle for the long term.

Overall there will always be conflicting information on car paint protection, but the simple truth is a high quality coating will really protect your car for 5 years plus depending on how you maintain and look after the coating itself. Nothing man made lasts a lifetime and paint protection is not exempt from this rule, coatings will go down their own path in life slowly and gradually deteriorating just like everything else around us does.

You should not buy a particular product based on its warranty but more look for results achieved and go with the one you like the most.

The actual benefits of a properly applied paint protection is simply awesome and it’s a shame the market has been saturated with ridiculous claims that have done no one any good other then tarnish the industry and led people to believe it is just another over exaggerated hype that will eventually disappear .

So why would anyone consider a protective coating and what really are the benefits for your car?

  1. Protection against environmental contaminants, atmosphere fallout, bird droppings, extended UV exposure etc…

Although your factory clear coat protects the underlying pigment fantastically from harmful environmental impacts, the paint underneath is actually quite soft and susceptible to acid and alkaline attacks.

You’re probably aware of the risks of leaving bird and bat droppings on your paint. Factory paint is actually weak at resisting chemical attacks from bird droppings, bat droppings, bug splatter and acid rain. A ceramic paint protection is much better at protecting against these attacks and can save you thousands in repainting costs in the future.

  1. Ease of vehicle upkeep, self cleaning effects and less time spent cleaning

Factory paint on new cars can quickly become flat and attract dirt once the protective layer dissipates, this can be either a cheap simple wax or sealant. A ceramic coating will not simply fall off after a few months and actually adds a barrier that repels dirt, water and road grime sticking to the surface of your car thus helping the vehicle stay clean longer. Keep in mind another great advantage of a ceramic barrier it helps reduce the friction between dirt and the paint not only offering a cleaner surface for longer but a greatly reduced chance of scratches (aka swirl marks) and micro marring from any future washing processes.

In conclusion and to recap on everything mentioned above

Car paint protection has found itself under the spotlight time and time again, with as much good publicity as bad. I frequently hear horror stories from customers that purchased the product that offered them the world and was a few hundred dollars cheaper, after only a few short months the paint looks flat and the water behaviour isn’t beading at all. The story often starts with an attractive after sales agent right after the handshake of a new car or searching for an aftermarket paint protection product that is cheaper and offering the world of benefits.

The sad reality is paint protection isn’t made equal and although they technically added a layer of “protection”, that layer can either be an easy-to-apply synthetic wax that provides as much protection as a decent bottle of wax found on the shelves of your local auto store or it could be a ceramic coating which will offer you years of protection. The end choice is yours to make and an educated decision is what you really want to make

Regardless if you are buying a new Porsche worth over $250,000 or a Kia valued at $20,000 the protection doesn’t discriminate and offers the same benefit to either vehicle.

Please note I’m not suggesting that all dealerships or car cleaners are slapping on a coat of the finest turtle wax on your car and charging you thousands for the privilege. I personally cover a lot of training and offer aftermarket support to many dealerships around Melbourne who choose to not simply apply a wax or sealant but actually want to offer a proper coating to their clients

Melbourne Mobile Detailing is endlessly trying out new products and proven to be at the forefront of nano ceramic paint protection in Melbourne offering only the highest grade of products. We choose to offer these products not just because of the high grade  of chemicals they offer but also because the Australian distributors stand behind their product range 100% and won’t look for excuses every time there might be an issue. What this means to the consumer is that we can offer them what we believe is the highest grade of protection with outstanding after care support and knowing that if there ever is an issue that we are all in it together to find the cause, rectify the situation and brainstorm on how we can stop this issue from happening again in the future

How long does a full detail take?

How long does a full detail take?

How long does a full detail take by Melbourne Mobile Detailing

Exterior Detail = 8 Hrs

• Wash and dry exterior paint – 1.5
• Detailer’s clay – 1.0
• Tyres and Wheel surfaces – 0.5
• Clean exterior glass – 0.5
• Clean and lightly polish paint – 1.5 (removing light surface scratches)
• Wax or seal paint -1.0
• Clean and protect rubber seals – 0.5
• Exhaust, tyres and trim etc 1.5 hours

Interior Detail =(4.5 hours)

• Brush and Vacuum carpets – 0.5
• Shampoo mats – 0.5
• Shampoo / extract carpet – 1.0
• Clean upholstery – 1.0
• Apply protection to vinyl and leather – 0.5
• Clean interior glass -0.5
• Deodorize interior – 10 min
• Protect carpet and upholstery – 0.5

These times are indicative and are provided as an approximation only

This level of detail on an average sized and condition vehicle would take approx 12 hours, a larger vehicle will obviously take more time, most professional detailers will charge between $750 and $1,000 to do this level of work. (a silica coating will add approx.$250 to $500)

Setting a Price

Setting a price should be fairly simple, materials used plus, a percentage % of (b) items 1 -6, plus Labour costs, plus profit margin


Calculate an hourly rate based on your costs of operation, any cost that is incurred by carrying out business, including your salary and benefits. If the market will allow you to charge more per hour charge it, but never less than what it costs you to operate the business.

a) Materials used (car care products) + expendables (i.e. micro fibre towels, latex gloves, etc.) + depreciation on tools (machine polisher, pads, vacuum, power washer, etc.)

b) Overhead Costs

1. Tools
2. Water
3. Electricity
4. Rent or Lease
5. Insurance, business licence, and etc.
6. Marketing

c) Labour

Estimated time x expected hourly rate
As a general number for actual labour costs multiply hourly rate 1.35 (not including benefits). At a minimum wage of $10.25 per hour that equals $13.87 per hour. Your labour costs should never exceed 30-35% of your total costs so you need to include 3.3x labour costs included in sales to cover all your costs plus profit.

This equates to approx. $42-$45 an hour for a minimum wage employee. (Check these figures as they vary by state)

d) Profit Margin
Percentage profit that you expect to make on sales

Depending on location / skill level / /reputation, to transform a vehicle back to ‘like-new condition; so expect to pay a fair price for the amount of work and materials involved.

The Science behind paint protection

What is car paint protection ??

A basic write-up of the science behind car paint protection

There is a lot more science into these products than most know about, which is fair enough as most haven’t had the opportunity to learn about products that they have even been ‘approved’ to apply as even their distributor or re-seller may not even know (or care?) about what the product is all about. Except making sales

Just adding to the confusion of everything that is currently available online for you to read into, firstly as some of you don’t know we actually spend quite a lot of time researching and learning about products (in particularly i do myself) out of detailing obsession and interest. Some stuff certainly goes way over my head though and I do try do as much research and educate myself as best I can to fully understand the processes involved

• Nanotechnology polymers form a very tight matrix chain-link structure, which forms both a very strong bond and one that is not easily breached by heavy chemicals or detergents (normally claimed “against alkaline washes, wheel cleaners and other acids from most brands)

• This type of nanotechnology coating with its small particulate size are much smaller than those of water, making them hydrophobic and hydraphillic (Both obviously meaning water resistant with different characters)

The results we mention bellow have all been sourced from different websites online and just put together to try explain their chemical build up

• A Quartz or CQuartz is an inorganic silica / silicon dioxide • Prime is an inorganic silica / silicon dioxide • Ceramic Pro / Gyeon MOHS+ is an silicon dioxide glass coating (SiO2) • G’zox is an organic polymer • Gtechniq is an inorganic silicate crystallization compound • Nanolex is an inorganic, solvent-based formula nanostructure coating (organic nanotechonlogy) (however their new Si3D is a matrix of nanotechnology and quartz coating together is quiet impressive) • Some other products are Opti-Coat Pro, Autotriz™ nano ceramic, Duragloss Ceramic, Dr Beasleys Nano-Resin and the list goes on and on

On the Mohs scale, graphite (a principal constituent of pencil “lead”) has a hardness of 1.5, a fingernail, 2.2–2.5, a copper penny, 3.2–3.5, a pocketknife 5.1, a knife blade, 5.5; window glass plate, 5.5; and a steel file, 6.5.[9] A streak plate (unglazed porcelain) has a hardness of 7.0. Using these ordinary materials of known hardness can be a simple way to approximate the position of a mineral on the scale.

An adaptation of that hardness scale (1 – 10) • Talc = 1H • Carbon Black [black paint pigmentation] = 2H • Glass = 6H • Titanium dioxide [white paint pigmentation] = 7H • Corundum 9H • Diamond =10 H

From my understanding Autotriz is the only product to be independently tested in Germany to meet and exceeds TUV SUD standards in Munich proving it is one of if not the best products available in the after market paint protection today

And the following safety information is from a online health report which I pasted bellow

■ ■ Health and environmental concerns

A major study published more recently in Nature Nanotechnology suggests some forms of carbon nanotubes – a poster child for the “nanotechnology revolution” – could be as harmful as asbestos if inhaled in sufficient quantities.

Anthony Seaton of the Institute of Occupational Medicine in Edinburgh, Scotland, who contributed to the article on carbon nanotubes, said “We know that some of them probably have the potential to cause mesothelioma.

So those sorts of materials need to be handled very carefully.” In the absence of specific nano-regulation forthcoming from governments (Paul, J. & Lyons, K. (2008) Nanotechnology: The Next Challenge for Organics) have called for an exclusion of engineered nanoparticle from organic food

[A newspaper article reports that workers in a paint factory developed serious lung disease and nanoparticle were found in their lungs]

In short, you should always ALWAYS be wearing a respritory system to avoid inhalation of these products during pre-application cleansers and application of the coating.

How paint protection extends the life of your cars paint

Step by step instructions to Extend the Life of Your Car

Always remember to use an authorised paint protection applicator and get the job dont right the first time … Saving $50 to get an inferior product applied on your vehicle is not worth it

There are basic, moderate approaches to keep your auto in great condition with auto wash Melbourne. A standout amongst the most disregarded, yet clear routes is to take after the prescribed support plan for your specific vehicle. Spend a couple of minutes perusing the upkeep plan and tail it altogether.

To help your endeavors, consider the accompanying tips on the most proficient method to keep your vehicle running for quite a while:-

Wash your auto: – The water you use for auto wash with cleanser ought to be warm to make washing less demanding. Flush the whole vehicle to uproot coarseness, earth and grime. This makes cleaning less demanding and serves to counteract scratching. A very much cleaned and waxed vehicle is significantly simpler to clean in light of the fact that the procedure of cleaning and waxing leaves a spotless smooth surface with a defensive obstruction that repulses soil, water and unsafe contaminates. It additionally makes your auto look incredible. A decent wax will give you four to six months’ security before expecting to reapply.

Pivot the tires: – This is a standout amongst the most straightforward way you can amplify the life of your tires is consistently turning them on your auto. By turning your tires consistently, you’ll guarantee yourself a smoother and more secure ride. Also, all the more critically you’ll spare cash over the long haul by amplifying the life of your tires. Turn the tires as per the auto’s manual. By and large, be that as it may, it’s best to pivot them each 6,000 to 7,500 miles. This avoids uneven tread wear and expands the life of the tires.

Change the oil routinely: – Regularly changing your auto’s motor oil and channel is a standout amongst the most imperative things you can do to keep your auto running great. Change the auto’s oil each 3,000 to 5,000 miles, alongside the oil channel. Keeping it spotless, free from earth and dust, amplifies the life of the motor.

Change the air channel: – Change the auto’s air channel routinely or when obstructed with earth. Clean air channels enhance gas mileage. Your auto needs air the same amount of as it needs fuel; air channels keep within the motor free of dust and creepy crawlies.

Check the liquids: – Regularly check the level of your auto oil, transmission liquid, radiator fluid, brake and force directing liquids. Autos need liquid supplanted in the programmed transmission at regular intervals or 25,000 miles, contingent upon your make and model. Most autos need their liquids changed each 4,000 to 5,000 miles.

Shield your auto from the sun: – The sun’s bright beams and warmth can harm your auto’s paint and inside. At whatever point conceivable, endeavor to stop your vehicle in the shade or inside a carport. Also, other i recommends getting an auto spread to give your auto consistently insurance against dampness, flying creature droppings, and different flotsam and jetsam.

What is paint protection by Melbourne Mobile Detailing

What is paint protection???

It all begins with Autotriz nano ceramic coatings

Silicon (Silica) Dioxide is an oxide of silica with the chemical formula SiO2. This technology allows an end user to spray coat industrial and domestic surfaces with a super durable coating of invisible, easy to clean glass. The application of SiO2 is amazingly straight forward. After proper preparation of surfaces and fabrics can be coated within minutes

The above photos is recent work performed by George from Melbourne Mobile Detailing and paint protection melbourne

The application method allows the end user to deposit a nano scale layer of molecular, particle free glass, onto the surface of most items. The molecules of glass come from pure quartz sand. Just like domestic glass, the coatings are chemically inert and highly resistant to acids. The coatings also offer resistance to alkalis and solvents.

Autotriz Australia

For the very best ceramic paint protection

Although there are many similarities to standard glass. These coatings are stunningly different. The layer is flexible, breathable, highly durable, heat tolerant, anti-microbial and offers non stick and “easy clean” characteristics. The thinnest coatings are undetectable, super phobic (repel oil and water), anti-microbial, super-durable, heat tolerant, breathable, flexible, physiologically harmless, easy to apply and environmentally friendly. All coated surfaces become “easy clean” and in most instances the coated surfaces can be cleaned with water alone.

German made advanced technology is the solution to many problems in the home and in many fields of industry. In healthcare and food production, where cleanliness is vital, the coatings have proven to be the answer to problems associated with difficult to clean surfaces, previously a breeding ground for bacteria. In the auto industry, where paint protection, stain proofing and rain repellent surfaces are sought, Autotriz ceramic coatings have proven to be the chosen technology. In the aviation sector where interior and exterior surfaces have to be protected, nano ceramic technology is being rapidly adopted. The list is almost endless.

A film of nano ceramic, only 100nm (approximately 500 times thinner than a human hair), is incredibly durable. Several domestic coatings can withstand 100,000 wiping actions; some of our industrial coatings can withstand many 100s of thousands of wiping actions.

Car paint protection by Melbourne Mobile Detailing

nano ceramic ultra thin coating technology has been described as “one of the world’s most versatile technologies” and when you consider it is easy to apply, heat tolerant, highly durable, chemically inert, food safe, low cost and anti bacterial, you can see why. Autotriz has been used as a food additive for many years.

It is commonly used in products such as toothpaste, ketchup, and beer. However another of its great values to the food industry is as a surface coating.

Surfaces coated with Autotriz exhibit anti-sticking, easy clean, stain proofing and biostatic characteristics. As ceramic coatings are inherently food safe and inert, it is the ideal coating for food production plants, butchery departments, storage vessels, kitchen implements and food handling surfaces.

Autotriz s can be applied to almost any surface, and in most instances we have an “off the shelf” solution to most requests. It should be stressed that not all of our coatings are at the nano scale. Some of our coatings are in the 2-3 micron range.

A nano scale coating is ideal if you wish to coat optical lenses but if you wish to coat flooring in a supermarket then a thicker coating may be more suitable. In all instances our coatings are low cost and very easy to work with.

Autotriz coatings can be used on almost all surfaces within the Healthcare sector. This includes clothing, stethoscopes, surgical instruments, walls, floors, operating theatres and bedside tables. Literally hundreds of surfaces can be coated within a hospital, dental surgery or similar environment.

Autotriz is ideal for protecting cars and motorcycles. Alloy wheels become easy to clean and blemish free, as brake dust does not burn into the coating. Exterior body work and fuel tanks become protected by a glossy, easy to clean and abrasion resistant coating.

Car seats become stain resistant and odours can be significantly reduced, especially if an anti-bac variant is used. Perhaps most significantly all of the windows can be coated with a highly durable and undetectable super-phobic coating which massively increases visibility when driving in heavy rain.

What is car paint protection and coatings

Written by Melbourne Mobile Detailing we choose to use Autotriz nano ceramic paint protection

Most likely the best effect has originate from the utilization of miniaturized scale innovation coatings, which have totally changed the scene of the itemizing business. Items like Zaino, Collinite, and so forth used to be the best insurance accessible yet small scale innovation items offer enormously expanded solidness, scratch resistance and security from the components that can be measured in seasons or years, instead of weeks or months.

What is Nanotechnology as it identifies with Detailing?

The art of nanotechnology; the creation, association, or control of materials, gadgets, or frameworks at the nanometre level Nanotechnology, Nano particles or Nano structures, precisely what are they and how would they identify with specifying?

The greater part of these coatings are not genuine nanotube/tubule innovation. This would bring about a genuine wellbeing sympathy toward those – also be ludicrously extravagant. The connection that “nano” (as identified with enumerating) is just as a relative size marker only to recognize a small scale estimated particulate. They are sub-micron particles that frame an unmistakable flimsy film of firmly pressed nano particles framing an expansion of the surface. The particles are up to a 1000 times denser which makes for a ultra-solid hard wearing surface.

In fact most specifying item particulates are not nano meter in size, despite the fact that they are to a great degree little, as the expression “nano” sufficiently portrays. Single-part coatings intertwine on an atomic premise and structure a greatly strong defensive layer on the paint surface gave they are connected appropriately.

The noteworthiness of a nano-covering is its small scale measured particles that can shape a tight bond with the surface of most materials; including glass, paint, plastic, elastic, aluminum, chrome, stainless steel and fabrics. These materials will have surface flaws i.e. tops and valleys, small scale crevices when seen under high amplification. These undulations permit a nano-covering polymer to shape a tight sub-atomic bond (much like a printer’s powdered ink when poured over paper that has composing spaces on it) with the surface its connected to.

Paint Surfaces

Auto paint surfaces contain minuscule tops and valleys, much like the profile of a mountain range. These inconsistencies are known as narrow structures; there may be a huge number of these imperfections per square crawl. Contaminants, for example, fine soil, minerals, and contaminations are drawn into the voids where they are amazingly difficult to evacuate.

The filling of the narrow structures with miniaturized scale particles delivers a hydrophobic surface. (A hydrophobic surface is one that repulses dampness.) interestingly, a hydrophilic surface is one that retains dampness. The capability of a surface to assimilate or repulse dampness is in light of numerous variables, including: temperature, relative stickiness, material homogeneity, and electricity produced via friction. Surface unpleasantness is additionally a central point; the rougher the surface, the higher the spreading rate or fascination for water. The smoother the surface, the more anti-agents it is to dampness (Lotus Effect).

The criticalness of a small scale covering is its little molecule measure that  can shape a tight bond with the surface of most materials; including glass, paint, plastic, elastic, aluminum, chrome, stainless steel and  fabrics, will have surface defects i.e. small scale gaps when seen under high amplification. These undulations permit a small scale coatings to shape a tight sub-atomic bond (much like a printers ink when poured over paper that has composing spaces on it) with the surface its connected to This level surface additionally enhances paint surface clarity and decrease light dissipating, giving enhanced light reflectance (LRV)

Fixing a surface with miniaturized scale particles means applying a smaller scale structure onto the surface, these treated surfaces get to be hydrophobic and opposes street earth, grime and so on connecting to its surface by the ‘Lotus Effect’. It is accordingly exceptionally water repellent, which empowers less exertion amid the cleaning stages and ideal insurance to the paintwork, glass, amalgams, fabric and trim.

Miniaturized scale innovation coatings frame a tight network steel a small scale structure  that embodies a reasonable dainty film of firmly stuffed nano particles shaping an expansion of the surface. These exceptionally thick particles are both an extremely solid bond and one that is not effortlessly broken by chemicals or cleansers. They additionally enhance paint surface clarity and lessen light disseminating, giving enhanced light reflectance

Through self-arranging against grip parts, the smaller scale structure frames an imperceptible hindrance like glass. They frame a bond by cabin themselves into the small scale pores of the paint framing a secured establishment and after that this establishment is based upon to shape the nano molecule framework. This is the reason a clean and dry, without oil (small scale pore) surface is so essential. Just the miniaturized scale structure stays on the fixed surfaces, while the water dissipates.

Small scale innovation offers prevalent solidness, hydrophobicity, surface hardness and scratch resistance, imperviousness to ecological contaminants, works like a reasonable coat in giving ultra violet (UV) and warmth radiation insurance without shading change (yellowing) or oxidation and simpler support, basically washing with plain water brings about a clean surface without loss of shine. these items are having a significant effect and profoundly change auto itemizing

Paint sealants contrasted with Coatings

Paint sealants are manufactured items intended for long haul paint insurance and simple application. They are made fundamentally out of amino utilitarian polymers, which last more than any regular wax and are profoundly impervious to the components. Manufactured fluid waxes are another method for depicting paint sealants. The principle advantage of a paint sealant is their strength contrasted with a wax, polymer-based sealants will last anywhere in the range of 3 to 6 months.

A covering is connected to a clean surface and are equipped for  a smaller scale structure ‘film assemble’, that is to say a quantifiable thickness, that surface tackles properties that are essentially indistinguishable to solidified glass. It is artificially inactive and won’t respond with the base material. As such, soil won’t attach to the treated surface, in this way decreasing dirtying and natural recoloring. Corrosive downpour and other synthetic mixes effectively wash off, essentially lessening the hydroscopic way of surfaces presented to modern or ecological contamination.

Does paint thickness (hardness) influence its scratch resistance?

Numerous covering items assert a got surface (Pencil) hardness of 9H yet this has little if anything to do with scratch resistance. Scratch resistance can be identified with higher cross-join thickness and flexibility of the covering system.

Hydrophobic surface [: The requirements for a self-cleaning hydrophobic surface are a very high static water contact angle θ, the condition often quoted is θ>160°, and a very low roll-off angle, i.e. the minimum inclination angle necessary for a droplet to roll off the surface] 

The lotus effect [: alludes to self-cleaning properties that are a consequence of high water repellence (super- hydrophobicity), as displayed by the leaves of the lotus flower] Dirt particles are gotten by water beads because of the smaller scale structural engineering at first glance, which minimizes the bead’s grip to that surface


Meaning of both Water repellence (hydrophobicity) and Roll-off

Hydrophobic surface [: The prerequisites for a self-cleaning hydrophobic surface are a high static water contact point θ, the condition frequently cited is θ>160°, and a low move off edge, i.e. the base slant edge essential for a bead to move off the surface] [1]

Hydrophobicity [: the property of being water-repellent; having a tendency to repulse and not assimilate water is dictated by the contact angle]

A hydrophobic surface is one that repulses dampness. Conversely, a hydrophilic surface is one that retains dampness. The capability of a surface to assimilate or repulse dampness is in light of numerous components, including: temperature, relative stickiness, material homogeneity, and friction based electricity. Surface harshness is likewise a main consideration; the rougher the surface, the higher the spreading rate or fascination for water. The smoother the surface, the more anti-agents it is to dampne

The contact point [: is the edge measured through the fluid, where a fluid/vapor interface meets a strong surface. It measures the wettability of a strong surface by a fluid through the Young equation]

Contact edge estimation gives a straightforward approach to focus the level of surface assurance. The arrangement of extensive, firmly dispersed water beads shows that dampness is effectively kept from being retained (a hydrophobic surface) into the surface profile. The characterization of water drops on a hard surface is referred to in industry as a “water break test” or ASTM F-22. This test is utilized broadly as a part of the business to check surface cleanliness.

The size, shape, and stature of the water drops are measured by their contact edge. Contact point is figured by a straight line that begins at the base of the bead and goes along its external surface to the break-off point. The estimation between this line and the surface decides the contact point

Surfaces with a contact edge A 90° are alluded to as hydrophilic and those with a point A90° as hydrophobic. A few plants show contact edges up to 160° and are called super-hydrophobic implying that just 2-3% of a drop’s surface is in contact. Plants with a twofold organized surface like the lotus can achieve a contact edge of 170° though a drop’s genuine contact range is just 0.6%. This prompts a self-cleaning effect.

Move off

The lotus effect [: alludes to self-cleaning properties that are an aftereffect of high water repellence (super- hydrophobicity), as showed by the leaves of the lotus flower]

Repellant [: ready to repulse a specific thing; impenetrable to a specific substance]

Move off of soil particles with a diminished contact territory are epitomized by water drops and are effectively cleaned off the surface. On the off chance that a water bead moves crosswise over such a defiled surface the attachment between the earth particles and the water drop is all that much diminished and the soil is effectively expelled from the surface

Covering Viability

Surface vitality (interface vitality) [: in the physical science of solids, surfaces must be naturally less vigorously good than the majority of a material (the particles at first glance have more vitality contrasted and the atoms in the greater part of the material]

So as to effectively frame a persistent covering, the fluid ought to have the capacity to wet the surface of the material. Wettability relies on upon one particular property of the surface: surface vitality. The surface vitality of the strong substrate straightforwardly influences how well a fluid wets the surface. To accomplish great wettability the surface vitality of the substrate needs to surpass that of the surface strain of the fluid by around 2 – 10 mN/m (Dynes). The Dyne level mirrors the surface wettability – the higher the Dyne level, the better the wettability/grip.

To acquire ideal attachment, it is important to expand the surface vitality of the substrate to simply over that of the material to be connected. For ideal attachment of a covering on different substrates, it is important to get a high surface vitality. Deciding the surface vitality can be accomplished by measuring contact point or by utilization of Surface Energy Test Liquids or Pens (Dyne level testing).

This type of estimation is taking into account the ISO strategy for measuring the surface vitality of polyethylene film. Surface vitality may be characterized as the overabundance vitality at the surface of a material contrasted with the mass. Each strong surface has a particular and quantifiable surface vitality. The unit of estimation utilized is the Dyne/cm² or mN/m.

At the point when the Dyne level test fluid is connected to the surface, the fluid will either frame a ceaseless film at first glance or maneuver once again into little drops. In the event that the Dyne test liquid stays as a film for 3 seconds, the substrate will have a base surface vitality of that liquid quality, communicated in N/m (Dynes). Should the Dyne test liquid reticulate or downside into beads in under 1 second then the surface vitality of the substrate is lower than that of the liquid itself. To test the reasonability of a covering obliges measuring the surface vitality (surface strain).

Utilizing a Dyne Test Pen will gauge the surface strain and recognize whither the covering is still suitable, which obliges a surface pressure of 38mN/m or higher.

Measure the surface vitality by utilizing slight weight to draw the Dyne QuickTest Pen tip over the covered surface. On the off chance that the ink lines therapist or dab inside of 1-2 seconds then the surface security is debasing as the surface vitality level has dropped to under 38 Dynes. In the event that the ink lines stay as checked and don’t recoil then the test specimen surface assurance is still reasonable as the covering has a surface vitality of 38 Dynes or higher.

Item Application

Be insightful that for a covering item to achieve its maximum capacity; that is to say the right contact edge, toughness and ideal cross-connecting it basic that you give a “clean” surface. Before application both above and sub-surfaces ought to be purifies, cleaning grease (oils, polymer (silicones) and wax) framework ought to be uprooted

Utilize the fitting individual assurance gear (PPE) an affirmed cover (Consult the current 3M Respiratory Selection Guide for extra data or call 1-800-243-4630 for 3M specialized help) nitrile gloves and security glasses as a base.

Because of the development of smaller scale fiber towels, they embody a hydrophobic Polyester (a cleaning fiber) which likewise gives the material quality and sturdiness and a hydrophilic Polyamide (an engrossing fiber) that is hugely retentive and fast drying. This nylon crossover is made amid weaving to make minuscule circles, which frame a system of little snares, scouring without end earth and grime. The way of this yarn is that it is a retentive; the reason polyester seems to ingest fluids is the numerous a large number of smaller scale filaments that aggregately epitomize fluids.

1)  Dr Joe committed Lint-Free 100% Cotton Surgical Towels, that  have a build up free, tight cotton herringbone weave and a string number of 170  per square creep,  which is perfect for hard surfaces as they have more “grasp” than smaller scale fiber towels and serves to spread the coatings evenly.Fold the towel down the middle and afterward half once more.

2)  The covering can likewise be connected with a build up free and non-grating microfiber softened cowhide fabrics (low snooze), which will uniformly spread the covering instead of retaining it. Edgeless optical evaluation calfskin weave Use a new fabric with an utensil square to help you set out the ideal utilization of fluid coatings and other assurance items. The Rag Company Detail Master™ Pro yet the significant burden of this kind of utilization is the covering dries and hardens to glass, which implies you require 5- 8 towels that will be disposed of after utilization.

My favored application system is to utilize base covering (P-01A) connected with a turning machine polisher and apply the covering with a shower firearm as I feel this gives a predictable thickness and scope. The covering can be connected with a smaller scale fiber towel yet the significant disservice of this sort of utilization is the covering dries and cements to glass, which implies you require 5- 8 towels that will be tossed after utili

Utilization of infra-red lights is profoundly prescribed. Permit 24 hours in a dampness/ clean free environment

Covering Maintenance

Numerous individuals have the wrong impression that paint coatings are a “no support obliged” kind of item. This is essentially not genuine. Routine washing is pivotal. As your covering gets to be secured with soil and defilement, you will see an abatement in hydrophobic properties. It’s imperative to uproot any surface taints all the time with an auto wash think that won’t leave gleam enhancers or surfactants behind because of a coatings ‘move off’ washing and drying the paint surface is effectively fulfilled

The ordinary auto wash thinks basically contain surfactants and antacid added substances. They work by separating surface pressure and wetting the surface to encourage soil evacuation by flushing. With huge numbers of the fresher coatings conventional auto wash arrangements, particularly at their ordinary great weakenings.

Utilize an exceptionally defined item like Optimum ONR or Modesta H-05 Shampoo– particularly formed for hydrophilic coatings. This uncommon cleanser evacuates soil and restores/draws out the covering’s unique hydrophobicity. This is a perfect covering upkeep cleanser

Dry surfaces with a waffle weave (arouse) towels to guarantee zero damaging to the paint surface


Shine the paint surface to evacuate (without uprooting an excess of clear coat) any surface flaws as this item cures to end up optically clear and will highlight any surface imperfections. It has constantly baffled me why individuals over-clean their auto paint and reason the paint to fall flat rashly; we all have seen cases of clear coat disappointment. A covering is the best approach to maintain a strategic distance from untimely disappointment of clear coats.

Coatings offers predominant sturdiness, hydrophobicity, surface hardness and scratch resistance, imperviousness to natural contaminants and works in a comparable manner to a reasonable coat in giving ultra violet (UV) and warmth radiation insurance without shading change (yellowing) or oxidation and less demanding support, basically washing with plain water brings about a clean surface without loss of shine. I think these items will have a significant effect and profoundly change auto enumerati


I completed broad research center testing of coatings using standard lab conventions, this involved substance investigation with a mass spectrometer, warmth, corrosive and ultra violet radiation resistance, surface hardness and hydrophilic properties.

The mas spec examination demonstrated numerous likenesses between a few brands, which of course would propose relabeled items.

The couple of, simply how about we say novel, items albeit utilizing totally distinctive chemicals as a part of their plan showed remarkable results

Recording a patent on a substance plan is to a great degree troublesome and would not take care of the issue as changing only one segment would make the patent void. Change is the thing that R and D (advancement) is about, what’s more relabeled item in the last investigation brings about more deals.
