Paint Protection

A paint protected vehicle not only delivers the maximum long term visual impact for a discerning car enthusiast but also ensures your investment is maintained with a deep gloss mirror finish which stands out from the crowd when it comes time to sell.

Paint Protection is applied to new and used (no more than about 5 years old) car ducos to protect the factory finished paint from environmental contaminants and conditions and also maintain that showroom shine. The maintenance of a car’s paintwork is easier for the owner of a paint protected vehicle as it will require cleaning less often and the cleaning itself is easier due to the repellent properties of the nanotechnology coating.

The benefits of paint protection include:

  1. Better than new deep gloss mirror finish
  2. Hydrophobic surface (water repelling) after treatment
  3. Repels dirt
  4. Reduces washing swirl marks by up to 40%
  5. Protection against oxidation
  6. Low maintenance Smart Surfaces requiring less effort to clean
  7. Weather and UV resistant
  8. Repels spills and stains
  9. Less frequent washing required
