What is a coating?

Tuesday, 03 October 2017

So you may have heard about coatings for your car to protect it for X amount of years but what really is a coating and what are you buying?

Well after finishing a new car protection recently we had a tiny amount of product (Max Protects 3 year glass coat) left in the bottle so we thought we would show you exactly what a coating is. We poured the coating on to some plastic sheeting and let it cure. As you can see from the picture when set a coating is a membrane (although this is quite thick due to how it was set) which is thick and hard (unlike a wax) and designed to last for years rather than months. Coatings are also chemical resistant, UV resistant,, improve scratch resistant, make cleaning easier and keep that just Detailed look wash after wash. Why settle for a wax that only lasts a few months when you can have a coating for years to come.

We honestly can't think of any reason not to coat your car.
