WTK: Ceramic/Nano Coating?

Postby Soochi boi » October 11th, 2017, 11:26 am

Chemical guys overrated imo, unless I constantly get old stock , products break down pretty fast down here.
Not all ceramic coatings need a cure time but you not gonna drive immediately after applying.(being 12+ hours unless going professional line which do need lamps and in some cases a cure time of 36 hours .)isopropyl with correct mixture , or there are formulated products used to "prep" the surface. E.g. I use gyeon quartz prep before applying the coating / any sealant . Also remember which I don't ever see anyone mention , yes these may last years but everything needs maintenance. Seen people spend thousands to do the process then carry vehicle to wash by side of the road and complain when vehicle get back scratches.
Contact is 356-1432 if needed.

I agree Chemical Guys products overrated, they have too many products under different labels for the same use.
Only the V7 spray selant and the VRP dressing stand out for me.

Hmm... Seems reasonable considering the fact that he has to prepare the vehicle before applying the coating...

my paint job bad and nicked up as is, not looking for showroom finish.
If it works as they claim in that dirt etc washes off easily for months I would be happy
as I drive a lot and vehicle gets dirty fast.

Cool bro.
We're trying to cater to DIYers and people who want to protect their investment but not pay the ridiculous prices some people charging.

Is there any coatings done to windshield And auto windows?

Because of the period of times some of our cars are on the road and in the sun, they are prone to staining on the glass and i catch my royal to get them off ( compound or wet sanding).

Any advice?

My honest advise on coatings in general; the initial cost is very expensive for a quality coating that will actually last. If a person wants "real" protection with "continuous" shine and slickness for a minimal cost then go with paint sealants.
I have been detailing cars for almost 10 years and to be honest I encourage all my customers to choose a paint sealant (eg. JESCAR Power Lock +) over the costly coatings.

The math is; I can charge $800.00 to $1000.00 to do a 3 stage paint correction c/w a sealant for protection and every two months re-wax a vehicle for $200.00 and I am 100% certain this vehicle will be fully protected and will always be slick, glossy and swirl free all year round.

This total cost would be $2000.00 a year and I guarantee no coated car will have the appearance like this option after 6 mths of driving in our poor road surfaces etc. The initial coated vehicle cost runs from 3k upwards. Imagine adding the annual maintenance cost :(

What do you use for the glass for water spots and minor scratches etc?

Glass can be buff and polished with a carpro system and simply maintained by the end user with rain-x after.

The nano coating will work on glass, but if you solely want to protect the glass and have water bead off then I won't advise spending $600 on this as putting some rain X every two weeks will be cheaper and give a similar beading action.

If you want to protect the whole vehicle then this will be your product.

can you explain the difference between a paint sealant vs nano coating
and if one is a fad or not ?

All you need is for one triple chin mampy, to fling open her door on your vehicle and nano coating gone down the drain.
