What is car paint protection?

Ever wanted to know what car paint protection is and how it works??

Paint protection is the made up of various chemicals and a brief explanation of a few of their chemical make up follows

We choose to use Autotriz nano ceramic paint protection

For a variety of reasons although its important to understand that each brand has its pros/cons and there is no perfect option out there but more about having the trust in your applicator that they are using the very best products for your vehicle

new car paint protection

Silica Coating consist of four chemicals – Silicon (Si), Siloxane (H(OSiH2)n OH), Silane (SiH4 ) and Silazane(a silicone compound), once formulated they become Silicon Dioxide (SiO2) and they are marketed under various

brand names:

an inorganic silica/silicon dioxide

 an inorganic silicate crystallization compound

 an inorganic solvent-based nanostructure coating (except for Si3D which is a matrix coating)

 polymer-based (SiC) carbide ceramic coatings

So now you know some of the chemical ingredients what does this mean to you?

Nothing really if the preparation isnt done right prior to the application of these products

Regardless of which product you choose to have applied on your vehicle just be sure to make the right choice in applicator and have faith in what he/she applies

Coatings work if applied and done properly

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 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.

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.

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.

Its permanent – The  Paint Protection Coating forms a permanent bond with the factory paint work that will not wash off or wear away with heavy chemical cleaners like other paint protection products on the market.

What can we achieve with a professional paint protection coating applied to our new vehicle? We choose to use Autotriz ceramics in Melbourne

Protection – Melbourne Mobile Detailing uses a hard ceramic film like layer that has advanced chemical resistance to protect the paint work against contamination that would otherwise affect the paint such as acid rain,bird poo, tar, tree sap, bug splatter, oxidation and other forms of chemical fall out and contamination.

Easy to clean – Properly applied paint protection is super hydrophobic meaning any water and dirt that comes in contact with the surface will simply bead up and roll off, keeping the car cleaner for longer and easier to clean whilst maintaining a high gloss finish.

What exactly is a nano ceramic glass paint protection?

Generally it is a clear liquid. It is comprised of carrier solvents/fluids and a group of active ingredients. Nano ceramic glass sio2 resin technology, developed through many years of research and development, is a closely guarded secret in the paint protection world. However it is a per-polymer ceramic glass resin bonded with several agents to increase gloss, protection and durability over new car clear coat finishes.

It reacts with the atmosphere to cure and forms a complex cross-linked uniform layer of protection.

a nano ceramic glass paint protection bonds to the paint using several methods based on chemical reactions that occur between your cars paint and the coating itself.  The most prominent is the “covalent” bonding process, whereby two electrons from opposing substrates form an inseparable bond at the molecular level.

The only way to remove paint protection of high grade from your vehicle is with abrasion, such as sanding or machine compounding.

Minimum curing time – 3 hours for light driving
Full curing time – 7-14 days (quicker if exposed to heat)

Is paint protection really permanent?
Most paint protections available in todays market are as permanent as the paint on your car. Once the coating is applied to your vehicle, the covalent bonding process begins immediately. Due to the strong chemical bonding process (interlocking paint molecules) it essentially becomes the functional surface of your car.

What areas can be coated with paint protection?
It can be applied to the entire exterior of your vehicle
Mostly we apply it to paint, glass and wheels as part of a package deal available from your approved applicator.

What is the difference between professional paint protection and what a dealer is offering?
Your dealer is most likely selling you a WAX with added PTFE (Teflon) for added durability. Wax simply does not have the durability or protection that a “coating” like paint protection melbourne can provide. Ask to see the bottle of “paint protection” they are offering. If it’s a creamy substance, its a wax!

How is paint protection applied?
Most professional series products are only available to applicators who have been trained in its application method. These products arrive in a “kit” containing all that the applicator needs to apply the coating.

Will it paint protection protect from stone chips?
No it will not.

For a coating to be strong enough to resist stone chips, the product would be too brittle.

Do I need to use special soaps/shampoos to wash the car?
No you do not.
You can use any shampoo you like, even the heavy duty ones.

Can I still wax the car after application of paint protection if I want to?
Yes you can, although it is not needed and can actually have a negative impact on the hydrophobic effect of paint protection.

How long before I can drive my car or get it wet?
The vehicle must remain stationary for at least 2 hours prior to light driving.
If you are intending to go for a longer drive or it is raining, you must wait 12  hours before driving.
