CERAMIC COATING

Keeping your car protected

Ceramic Coatings are a chemical that is applied to exterior surfaces of your vehicle to provide protection against the elements.

Ceramic coatings bond to your vehicles existing paintwork, forming a hydrophobic layer of clear protection. In theory adding another layer to your vehicles exterior, shielding the factory paintwork from damage.

In terms of protection, it wont provide a physical protective barrier like PPF (Paint Protection Film) but instead prevent dirt, grime, swirls and chemical marring from appearing on the paint and ruining the clear coat and make cleaning much easier.

What is a ceramic coating?

When buying a brand new or even second hand car, you may have already heard or been offered a "lifetime" paint protection package or ceramic coating.

The unfourtunate truth is, these products pale in comparison to a true professional ceramic coating in both functionality and performance, only used as a marketing avenue.

These coatings are often made out of sythentic polymers or carnuba, that will offer short term protection. Ceramic coatings are most often made from SIO2 (Silicon Dioxide) a much more
resilient chemical, that once cured, offers superior hydrophobic properties, UV protection, and chemical resistance that will last years rather than months.

Once applied, you will find dirt and grime will struggle to latch to your vehicles paintwork, resulting in it being cleaner for longer and when time to clean, make the process much simpler.

Is it only brand new cars than can be ceramic coated?

NO! Is the answer

Any car can recieve a ceramic coating, whether its the family run around, company car, or a vintage classic.

The only differences may be the level of preparation required, a form of paint correction is needed before application of a ceramic coating. Even brand new cars from factory will benefit from a form of paint correction as often there are defects lying in the paintwork from poor washing techniques.

TYPHON V2

This is hands down our finest coating. It is thicker and glossier than any other coating we have ever used.

The extra visual depth, clarity and colourshift (richness of colour) that this coating adds is simply spectacular.

​Typhon is a high solids, ultra durable hydrophobic coating and at around 50% thicker than most ceramic coatings, it provides increased resistance against UV rays, acid rain, salts, chemicals and bird droppings.

Typhon's highly reflective surface enables you to maintain your vehicles paintwork much more effieciently, saving you time and keeping the appearanceof the vehicle cleaner for longer against the rigors of the envoronment.

Simply put, Typhon looks incredible, lasts for years and makes your car easy to look after while retaining a deep gloss finish. If you want the very best, then this is the coating for you.

Typhon can be applied as a single or double layer, and can be combined with base coat Gaia for the ultimate protection and/or topped with Chimera for a super-slick finish.

Typhon lasts up to 5 years from a single application.

Gaia

This is a revolutionary ceramic coating unlike any other currently available on the market. It is a high solids, super durable non-hydrophobic coating. This coating provides a hard base layer, on top of which any other form of protection can be applied - from waxes to the full range of GT ceramic coatings.

​Each layer of this coating adds a micron of thickness to your vehicles paint and can be layered as much as you want. with each layer adding incredible visual clarity, gloss and depth. This coating lasts up to 7 years and provides the perfect base for Typhon or Cerberus coatings to give maximum gloss and protection.

​We sometimes see cars whose paint is too thin to safely machine polish to remove defects and swirls and this coating can help to add to the depth of paint. For car care enthusiats who enjoy waxing their own car, Gaia is a perfect base, giving depth and clarity to your vehicles paint, but due to being non-hydrophobic waxes can be applied to this coating time and time again.

CEREBUS V2

This is a fantastic coating, combining deep gloss and slickness with easy maintenance and excellent hydrophobic properties. It is a 2 layer coating which lasts up to 3 years.

​Cerberus is a very versatile ceramic coating and is suitable for use on both matte and gloss paint. It also performs really well on vinyl and plastics.

HADES

Hades is a highly resilient and durable hydrophobic ceramic coating for automotive alloy wheels and is based on the very latest Quartz Nano-Coating Technology. When applied, it forms a hard crystalline layer that is extremely resistant to heat and abrasion from brake dust particles but also highly resistant to chemical attack. ​ By forming strong covalent bonds to the surface, Hades forms a hard slick layer that enhances gloss and self cleaning characteristics thus accelerating the wheel cleaning process. As a result, Hades is the ideal coating for protecting components like brake calipers, suspension, exhaust and engine components.
