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 […]
WHY CAN’T FILM BE APPLIED TO THE FRONT WINDSCREEN
No. Films cannot be applied to the windscreen, however, the good news is that the windscreen on all new vehicles is made from laminated glass. Laminated glass delivers very high UV protection – it blocks out the majority of both UVA and UVB rays.
What is the purpose for using clear window film?
Clear film is often applied over privacy glass. Given that privacy glass is usually quite dark (and may have a measured VLT as low as 20-25%) it is not legal to apply a coloured film over this. Application of a clear film can deliver the maximum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays. The MotorOne […]

There are also restrictions where tint can be applied and no film of any type (including clear film) can be applied to the […]
HOW SHOULD I CLEAN THE WINDOWS WHERE THE WINDOW FILM HAS BEEN APPLIED?
Use a good quality cloth or chamois and warm water. Window cleaners can be used, provided the cleaning agent does not contain any ammonia. Ammonia in the cleaner will burn the film and leave what appears to be a permanent streak.
I have just taken delivery of my new vehicle and noticed my window film appears to be hazy and milky in appearance – is this normal?
This is quite normal. High performance window films need to fully cure and (and any moisture evaporate) before maximum optical clarity is achieved. Curing time varies and is dependent on temperature and humidity. In cooler climates window films can take up to 14 days to fully cure.
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.
