Second only to houses, cars are usually among the most expensive things that people will own throughout their lives. Whether you’ve gotten a great deal on a pre-owned vehicle or you’ve finally driven your brand-new dream car away from the dealership, it’s an investment that you’ve made towards your future, and you want it to last. This isn’t just about what’s under the hood, though – it’s always important to keep your vehicle looking good.
The quality of the paint job is the first thing that people notice about any vehicle, and the difference between a good one and a bad one is staggering. While the sheen and gloss of a great paint job is always satisfying to see, paint does more than just show off your fashion sense – it protects the underlying metal, prevents rust, and mitigates scratches and abrasions. It’s the first line of defense against the elements as you drive, and without it, vehicles would rust and fall apart in no time.
But what happens when even this protective layer of paint needs protection? After all, there are plenty of nasty chemicals out there that will eat away at it – tree sap, bird droppings, acid rain – and all it takes are a few badly-placed rock chips to allow moisture and rust to invade. Is there a product that will raise the defenses on your car’s vulnerable areas, while making its paint look even better than new, for years to come?
Well, as it happens – yes, there is!
For a long time, the only option available to car owners were wax coatings. Whether they were natural (like carnauba) or synthetic, the big issue was this: they are very short-lived! They had gloss and minor protection, but sunlight, rain, and simply the passage of time would wear it away in a matter of days to weeks. After this came the age of paint sealants, which are polymers derived from amino functional fluids. While they last a bit longer – 3 to 6 months – the thin coating is ineffective against cleaners with solvents and corrosive natural chemicals.
That brings us to now – the third generation of paint protection. At SR International, we use the CS-II series: a no-paste, no-wax formula that is specially designed to work on all finishes and varnishes. It uses nanotechnology to interlock the molecules of the coating with the paint in a titanium crystal layer that is the finest automotive paint protection on the planet. This coating is second-to-none when it comes to protecting your vehicle’s paint.
Before we apply the coating, we permanently remove scratches from your current paint job. In addition to offering superb future scratch resistance, preventing rust and corrosion, maintaining high-gloss sheens, and reducing cleaning costs, the coatings are also “super-hydrophobic” and will not be removed by using water. This means that one investment will last you for years – yes, years!
