Technological advances in the paint protection industry have led to the creation of Ceramic Coatings. Unlike waxes and sealants ceramic coatings chemically bond to the substrate forming a harder more durable sacrificial layer that protect the paintwork. Ceramic Coatings cannot be washed off meaning that they last years instead of months.
A ceramic coating is a mixture of nanostructured silanes and siloxanes that when hand-applied, chemically bond to the paint or glass. Ceramic coatings protect the surface from chemical and UV degradation as well as offering a level of scratch resistance.
Crystal Serum Ultra delivers the best swirl resistance of all the Gtechniq coatings. This product is a composite ceramic coating, that when applied phase separates into two layers. The first layer measures 7h on the pencil hardness scale and bonds to the paintwork, so that it cannot be washed off. The second layer is a harder 10h layer which is an aggregate of 7nm and 20nm nanoparticles that offer superior chemical resistance, weather resistance and swirl resistance.
Since incorrectly applied Crystal Serum Ultra can only be removed using sand-paper, it is only available to be applied by a specially trained accredited Gtechniq detailer
