Paint Protection is the term used to describe the application of a sacrificial layer to a vehicle’s exterior so as to offer a safeguard from environmental contamination, scratches and swirls, oxidisation, UV damage and chemical etching (bird/bat poo etc). In addition to its protective properties, coatings by Waves DETAIL PRO offer a car’s paintwork an insane level of mirror-like gloss that lasts for years on end even in the hot Australian sun.
A properly treated vehicle exhibits a high degree of self-cleaning abilities. Contaminants such as rain water, road grime, industrial fallout and dirt are much less likely to adhere to the surface of your vehicle, resulting in effortless washing and cleaning.
Coatings are only to be applied by a highly trained professional. It takes a minimum of 4 hours to effectively and thoroughly prepare a vehicle for application of a paint protection coating. Without proper paintwork decontamination and polishing, the lifespan of the coating is greatly reduced.
Once the coating is applied, it requires 12-24 hrs of curing time. During this time, the car cannot get wet, otherwise the coating will not achieve maximum hardness.
WHY GTECHNIQ CRYSTAL SERUM?
Crystal Serum is the market-leading composite ceramic coating and is by far the best paint protection available for your vehicle.
Unlike car dealership paint protection products which don’t last, Crystal Serum cures and bonds to the surface of your pride and joy, creating a thick glass layer which exhibits extreme gloss, water beading and chemical/swirl resistance.
Crystal Serum may only be installed by an accredited and highly trained Gtechniq Detailer, which means that your car is in safe hands.
Waves DETAIL PRO technicians spend hours and often multiple days polishing and preparing each vehicle for Crystal Serum installation so as to achieve flawless, showroom results.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Paint protection is serious business! And if you don’t get it right it can result in heartache and costly repairs.
Crystal Serum safeguards your vehicle’s exterior with a 9H sacrificial glass layer, offering 24/7 protection from our harsh Aussie climate.
The hard 10h top and softer 7h base layer offer improved swirl resistance over regular 9h paint protection coatings.
The molecular structure of the hard top layer is exceptionally chemical resistant. Crystal Serum Ultra can withstand even the strongest wash chemicals and bird droppings.
HEAT & UV RESISTANT
An additional benefit from having a flexible base layer and hard top layer is that Crystal Serum Ultra is very resistant to extreme heat changes, even from -40 degrees Celsius to +250 degrees Celsius.
