Due to environmental demands, car manufacturers now have to use water based paints. Whilst being environmentally safe, they are prone to fading and oxidization. Paint protection is made from refined rock oils that are formulated into a 2 stage process so that each product compliments the next and builds up to create a tough durable glaze.
The hard, high gloss protective skin created prevents road salts, traffic film, acid rain, tree sap, insect fluid and other atmospheric pollutants from contacting directly with your cars paintwork. Fading from ultraviolet light is virtually eliminated as is nitrate etching caused by bird droppings.
Once treated, you'll never have to polish your car again. Your vehicle will look as good as it did when it left the showroom, thereby improving it's resale value.
Another major benefit of paint protection’s high gloss finish is the ease with which dirt and grime is washed off the paintwork.
During the Fabric Protection process each fibre is coated with an invisible resin based material. After treatment your fabric will be guaranteed against normal everyday spills and stains.
The Autoglym LifeShine system offers a unique and realistic opportunity to keep your car in top condition for the lifetime of your ownership. Specially treated surfaces maintain appearance to give miles of pleasure and retain re-sale value.
All exterior paintwork is treated to a unique protective coating to enhance shine and ensure maximum resistance to environmental hazards, even the severest winter weather. The glossy water-repellent coating is easier to keep clean and maintains a superb deep gloss shine.
Once your car has been specially prepared, you will receive an Autoglym LifeShine registration document and a complementary LifeShine Care Kit for ongoing care. Keep your registration document safe for the day when you may wish to impress a prospective purchaser.
The condition of a car's paintwork has a direct link to it's value. Silver Seal is a guaranteed protectant for paintwork and upholstery which protects and adds value.
Every customer who purchases a Silver Seal application receives an individual certificate, guaranteeing the effectiveness of Silver Seal products for:
3 years if applied to a brand new vehicle OR a vehicle with up to 25,000 miles registered at time of application of Silver Seal and is less than 5 years old.
2 years if applied to a vehicle less than 5 years old and between 25,000 and 50,000 miles registered at time of application of Silver Seal
1 year if applied to a vehicle under 5 years old, with over 50,000 miles registered at the time of application of Silver Seal
All paint sealants work in pretty much the same way when you get down to it. They seal your paintwork with polymers and other plastics.
But there are major differences between different brands. Some are single application one-off treatments. Some are two stage applications which require you to wash with an additive. Some require multiple coats which 'build' but each coat takes many months to cure and some have special ingredients such as Teflon which give extra resistance against corrosive compounds. This means that it's impossible to find one clear winner, each has it's place. As some of them require a certain amount of commitment on the part of the car owner we stock wide range so that you can choose the best sealant for your needs.
Paint sealant technology is continually evolving. So at the Valet Centre NW we are continually testing and evaluating new brands as they come onto the market so we can bring you the very best at competitive prices.
