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 […]
What should I expect when I take delivery of my vehicle – will there be any difference in the appearance of my paintwork?
Essentially, ceramic coatings will enhance the colour and shine of your paintwork. Visually, results will vary and this is dependent on the colour and type of paint. The coating takes around 3 days to fully cure. Once curing is completed, the coating will achieve maximum gloss and protection.
Maintenance is quick and easy. Simply hand wash the vehicle using the HYDRO carwash shampoo (or any pH neutral car wash) and chamois dry. We recommend always washing the vehicle in the shade when the metal is cool. Avoid using commercial car washes, which often dispense strong detergents which may contain solvents.
Protektiv HYDRO is a new generation ceramic paint coating. Unlike traditional paint protection products which can break down over time, the combination of traditional and advanced ceramics in this formula deliver a coating that outlasts and out performs many other ceramic paint coatings. HYDRO coating contains both Silicon Dioxide and Silicon Carbide. Silicon Dioxide creates […]
Hydrophobic simply means a surface repels water. Hydrophobic coatings are extensively used globally on a wide range of surfaces including glass, stainless steel and even in medical applications (to coat surgical instruments). In simple terms when a surface has hydrophobic properties, water will tend to sheet or roll off the surface which can help take […]
The good news is that once the HYDRO Paint Coating has been applied there is no need to wax or polish. Simply hand wash using a pH neutral car wash.
This is actually quite correct. During the 1980’s and until the end of the 90’s many formulas contained silicone. This is no longer commonly used as silicone-based formulas were often referred to as ‘a panel beater’s nightmare’. Silicone is a synthetic rubber which is widely used in many industries and products today including plumbing (as […]
I was told your coating was made using ‘nanotechnology’ – what is this and what are the benefits to me?
Nanotechnology, put simply, is the “science of small”. A nano sized particle = 1b metre! We engineer our coatings using nanotechnology. What this means for you is a smoother surface and superior coverage.
In general terms, paint sealants provide a barrier against UV, dirt & road grime; more recent formulas were enhanced to reduce the damage caused by bird droppings & tree sap. However, traditional paint sealants will break down over time and most require reapplication. MotorOne Protektiv HYDRO Paint Coating is a combination of traditional and advanced […]
