Key Points

Protect

DuraSeal and OptiCoat ceramic coatings protect and preserve the long term look, feel and value of your vehicle.

SAVE TIME

What You Should Know!

Exterior paint protection, interior fabric and leather protection are very effective. Think of them as a permanent wax or sealant. There are many good options available; however, they do require care and maintenance. You must always wash and dry the vehicle off correctly.

  • Always wash the vehicle when the paint is cool to the touch.
  • Ensure that the you completely dry the vehicle off, removing all water droplets.
  • Use an emulsifying wash mix which will release the dirt form the paint surface, minimising wash marks. 

What’s more, when looking to apply DuraSeal or OptiCoat. Consideration must be given to the environment where the vehicle is primarily used. This will affect overall performance and re-coat times.

Two Coats or One?

When considering a protective coating, it is best to view how the coating bonds with the existing clear coat. Vehicle clear coats are dimpled in nature like a gold ball. One layer of high resin content coating will fill in some of the dimple. However, two coats of a high resin coating will likely smooth the surface to a glass like finish and deepen the look of the paint. In addition, because the surface is smoother the vehicle is easier to clean and dry.

Watch As Water Beads Away!

Correctly applied paint protection will have this affect for many years. Making cleaning a breeze.

Protective Ceramic Coatings

Browse through a collection of Final Touch: Dura Seal G4 Premium and OptiCoat Pro/ Plus Paint Protected Vehicles.

New Vehicle
When purchasing a new vehicle, ensure that the paint surface has not  been buffed and left swirls and holograms in the paint. Applying a paint sealant to this will leave your vehicle looking like it has done several hundred thousand k’s.
Much Loved
Your vehicle has a few miles on it. However, you have had it cut polished and corrected. Now you want to protect it. This is the correct time to consider paint correction.
Dealer or Specialist
Consider that dealers often turn grooming staff over at an alarming rate. In contrast, a specialist has their reputation at stake when applying a specialised product designed to last for many years when applied correctly.

Application

Surface preparation is paramount when it comes to successfully applying paint protection. Lack of attention to the surface preparation leads to poor performance or complete failure of the paint protection. You may have had paint protection applied and noticed the water is not beading off, being repelled or the shine is gone. This is normally related to end of life coating, not correctly cared for or incorrectly applied. In contrast, if the vehicle has had paint correction applied correctly and been hit hard with environmental pollutants it will lose its shine, However, the clear coat is still protected. A simple deep clean and reapplication will restore the gloss.

Why Have It?

Think of paint protection as at the sacrificial barrier between your vehicles pristine clear coat and the many environmental pollutants which can dull the surface eating away at the shine and gloss. Having that sacrificial barrier makes good sense and in our experience saves considerable time and money. We have tested many products. However, there remain only two options on which to place our reputation on.

Do You Wax?
Are you a weekend cleaner and once a month waxer? If so then paint protection is a good option for you. You will come out ahead and not have to worry. More time for the weekend.
Car Wash or Hand Wash?

Do you often use the brushed cart wash at the service station? If yes then paint protection is NOT for you. Those brush systems create many fine lines where pollutants get trapped.

If you are a hand washer, then YES. Paint protection is for you.

Short on Time?
You like your car to look its best but you are short on time. Then YES paint protection is for you.
Provides Protection From?
  • Bug Stains: Enables the owner to easily remove bug splatter and minimises the staining.
  • UV Protection: Boosts the UV protection rating existent within the vehicles paint through addition of a blocking layer.
  • Bird Droppings: Adds a protective sacrificial layer to vehicle paint, greatly reduces the occurrence of bird strike damage.
  • Water Spotting: Reduces the impact of water spotting, while improving the drying time of the paint*.
  • Environmental Pollutants: Provides a harder more resistance barrier for pollutants.

*As with any product, an element of user care is expected. Dura Seal G4 Premium is safe for use in car washes. It’s important to correctly clean and dry the vehicle. Not leave bird and bug strike on the paint for more than a couple of days. Water

Tip & Tricks For Maintaining That Shine

When cleaning a vehicle try to remove the heavier dirt items with a higher pressure wash. Follow this with a good emulsifying cleaner that releases the dirt form the paint surface. Minimising scratching. Wash top down, cleaning the wheels last with a specific brush. Always dry the vehicle back and never wash hot paint, as this risks etching in water spots.

Our recommendation is toi use a high quality sealant like DurSeal or OptiCoat Pro, to minimise the need for polishing and waxing. However, when polishing or waxing, ensure the paint surface is cool and vehicle is away form direct sunlight. Apply in uniform motion following manufacturers directions.

Often forgotten until it's really bad. Care of your vehicle glass is important for the long term value and overall feeling of ownership. If your glass has got water spots on it, it's possible we may be able to remove them. However, some glass is quite soft and very easily etched by water spots.
