CERAMIC NANO GLASS COATINGS

We are accredited by CarPro/Cquartz, GYEON, Polish Angel and SiRamik to apply their coatings. We advise that Ceramic/Glass/Nano Coatings are applied to freshly detailed, corrected or correctly prepared paintwork to give the best finish and durability. Coatings lay down a hard layer of protection over the paintwork, any defects left in the paint will be visible and locked in for a long time.

We will only apply coatings in our dedicated purpose built premises where they can be applied correctly and safely. They mustn't be applied in direct sunlight or wet weather where curing can be affected. These coatings required a 12-24 hour period to dry/cure enough before  we will release the vehicle and be exposed to the elements. The coating will then take a further 5 - 10 days to fully cure in UV light.

Ceramic glass coatings are rapidly becoming the choice of protection for many detailers and clients. This is due to the fact that they are extremely durable, 12-24 months protection can be had if correctly maintained and offer many benefits, not just durability.

Ceramic/Glass/Nano Coating Advantages:

  • Added thickness layer - Glass coatings add a thickness layer of between 0.2 – 1.5 microns to the surface, meaning paint is left untouched by contaminants such as bird droppings, acid rain and industrial fallout.
  • Self Cleaning Effect - Simple maintenance and helps with upkeep.
  • Anti Static - Helps prevent dirt, dust and road grime clinging to the vehicle.
  • Anti Scratch Effect - Due to the hardness, these coatings resist wash marring/swirls by as much as 50-70% which is more than dealer applied coatings/wax's.
  • Hydrophobic/Water Repelling - Water will be seen to just run off of the vehicles surface.
  • UV Protection - Coatings protect from the damage of harmful UV rays.

These coatings require extra special care to apply, and some need certain conditions to cure in, to ensure best durability and reaction with the paint surface. They can be very time consuming to apply, and correct application, removal procedures and health and safety need to be adhered to. 

 

Cquartz UK Ceramic Coating and Reload from £180
Based on the original CQuartz technology. CQuartz UK was developed in the United Kingdom for use in cold, damp climates where most nanotechnology coatings typically struggle. A new fast flashing carrier was used to enhance curing in difficult conditions, and the silica-quartz content was increased to a scarcely believable 70% creating an even harder and purer glass layer. These enhancements allowed CQ UK to be easily applied in temperatures as low as 41-degrees Fahrenheit (5-Degrees Celsius), with even higher levels of beauty and protection, making it the unofficial pinnacle of our consumer CQuartz line.

CQUARTZ Accredited Only Finest and Reload from £280
CQUARTZ FINEST is an evolution in ceramic paint coatings. Finest provides a durable, super high gloss coating that protects paint and other automotive surfaces from UVA and UVB rays, dirt, brake dust, iron contaminants, bugs, bird droppings, tar, and all sorts of environmental contaminants for up to two years if correctly maintained. Finest will not bubble, yellow, peel, oxidise, or lose any more than 20% loss of gloss over a 2 year period, again, if maintained correctly.

 

GTECHNIQ Cyrstal Serum Light and Exo from £250
Serum Light forms an ultra- durable, high-gloss, slick to the touch, chemically bonding inorganic layer of 9h optically clear ceramic. The high density ceramic layer is resistant to chemicals ranging from pH2 - pH12. This characteristic also makes bonded contaminants such as tree sap, tar, and hard water spots, easy to remove.

GTECHNIQ C1 and Exo from £180
C1 forms a sub micron crystalline film that is extremely hard. This characteristic makes c1 extremely effective at preventing minor scratching from poor wash technique on relatively soft automotive paint. We have run tests comparing c1 coated panels with uncoated and against panels coated with various high end carnauba waxes and polymer sealants. On average c1 coated panels exhibited 50% less marring. In tests C1 outlasted dealer-applied sealants by at least 10 times.

GTECHNIQ EXO
EXO is Gtechniq’s ultimate hydrophobic coating. By providing, a lotus leaf effect which repels dirt and water, EXO ensures your vehicles surface stays cleaner and glossier for much longer. Based on the next generation of inorganic-organic hybrid materials.

 

SiRamik APT Accredited Detailer Only Product. from £275
Siramik Glass coat SC-HR and SC Ultima is SiRamiks new two part Advanced Protection Technology for vehicle paintwork, wheels and exterior plastics. This is a 2 part system that contains extreme elements of Silica to form an ultra durable and tough coating that has the ability to withstand levels of bird lime, marring and the like with a potential durability of over 3+ years.

Part 1. SC-HR Heat Resistance Coating
This is the base layer, containing the highest silica of the 2 coatings and has been formulated to withstand the extreme temperatures of exhausts and engine components and is ideally suited for alloy wheels and brake callipers, as the base layer for the paintwork this is the toughest and strongest we can offer and alone will provide in excess of 2+ years of protection.

Part 2. SC-Ultima
Ultima is the upper coating that will provide the extreme gloss and crisp clear looks that will create an unbelievable hydrophobic layer, adding further protection and superior cleaning abilities. Ultima is also as with SC-HR suitable for all plastics where durability is again excellent. As with coatings of this technology most would require infra red drying times but Ultima is a 60 minute fast cure with no IR needed, however, overnight cure indoors or undercover is imperative to the coatings initial protection as complete cure is 60 hours.

SiRamik SC15 and SiRamik Surface Mist Sealant from £150
SiRamik Surface Coat SC15 is an ultra durable entry level ceramic coating that is gaining a reputation and very popular choice for our clients. With stunning looks and amazing water behaviour, this really is a fantastic entry level coating. SC15 can be applied to painted surfaces, wheels and plastic trim, so one product for all surfaces.

SC-15 has been tested in government testing centres and in front of leading paint manufacturers with favourable results, exceeding expectations. SC-15 has been tested SC-15 will protect surfaces with no loss of protection with temperatures up to 250ºC. I doubt a dark coloured car sitting in the sun for 8 hours would reach these temperatures.

 

Dooka's Coating Combo. from £350
Dooka's Coating Combo is a three layer combination of coatings that we feel offer unparallel protection, gloss and water behaviour. Over the past 6 or so years, dooka have applied numerous coatings from differing manufacturers. With this experience in mind, we have chosen to offer our own take on these coatings. We have taken what we believe to be the best from a handful of manufacturers.

Layer one provides the protection from wash marring, the hardest coating we use. We the top with a coating that we believe gives the highest gloss levels and offering even more protection. We then top the second layer with what we believe gives the ultimate in water behaviour and self-cleaning properties. We would like to see 2 years + protection from this combination if properly maintained. You may need to top the top layer every 3-9 months depending.
