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 means that the surface rejects water, this means that water sheets off the protected surface taking with it dirt and other contaminants. This leaves your vehicle cleaner for longer.
Should I use any waxes or polishes on my car when it’s been coated with High Performance Surface Coating?
Some polishes can be quite abrasive and cause swirl/scratch marks. Waxes break down and require reapplication. The good news is that our High Performance Surface Coating eliminates the need to wax or polish the vehicle – saving time, money and energy!
I was advised not to purchase paint protection for my new vehicle as it would actually be bad for the paint – what does this mean?
Early paint sealants (in most cases) contained silicone. In the event of a scratch or damage to the painted area, silicone-based sealants made painting difficult as the silicone would cause the paint to ‘ball’ and not effectively adhere to the surface. MotorOne High Performance Surface Coating does not contain any silicone. Our formula contains titanium […]
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.
Paint sealants provide a barrier against dirt & road grime, and the more recent formulas were enhanced to provide some protection from bird droppings and tree sap. However, paint sealants break down over time and require reapplication. Performance Coatings do not break down. In fact re-active coatings actually help break down the contaminants on the […]
Yes, all Protektiv HYDRO coatings are water-based. No harmful solvents are used in the formulas.
In simple terms, silicon is a naturally occurring chemical element; silicone is a synthetic substance. Silicon is the second most abundant element on the earth’s crust (after oxygen). The element is most commonly seen as silicon dioxide (also known as silica) which is the most common component of sand. Sand is the main constituent of […]
