WHY HAVE CERAMIC COATINGS REPLACED TRADITIONAL PAINT PROTECTION PRODUCTS?
Early paint protection products were predominately used to prevent UV damage and protect against fading and discolouration of the paintwork. Some improvements were made to these early formulas which also offered some protection from corrosive substances such as bird droppings and tree sap, however these formulas all had one thing in common; the abrasion caused by dirt & road grime combined with extended UV exposure would cause these products to break down. Most also required regular rejuvenation using special washing agents.
In today’s world, consumers expect far more from a paint protection product than purely just locking in shine or protecting against paint fading and discolouration. Ceramics deliver outstanding protection, hardness and durability. HYDRO Paint Coating out-performs many other coatings due to the combination of ceramics in the formula – Silicon Dioxide (also referred to as a traditional ceramic) and Silicon Carbide (which is classified as an advanced ceramic). Ceramics have extreme heat tolerance and do not break down when exposed to the abrasion caused by dirt and road grime. Protektiv HYDRO delivers outstanding protection against a wide range of environmental contaminates including bird & bat droppings, tree sap, bore water etching & rail dust as well as preventing UV induced oxidisation and loss of gloss. HYDRO ceramic coating is backed by the MotorOne nationwide lifetime warranty, and also offers a limited (6 year) warranty against clear coat delamination.
