As to what solutions we can offer for new car paint protection, whilst we are approved by many manfacturers, and hold accreditations such as Swissvax, 1k Nano, Dodo Juice and are IGL Kenzo masters, we will always advise products based on what meets your requirements, needs, and budget, to give you the system which will give you the protection required whilst saving you the maximum time, and effort, maintaining your new purchase.
To give you an idea of costs, our protections range from an entry polymer-coating such as 1k Nano, a tough, high gloss coating designed to activly repel water, whilst being difficult for dirt to adhere too. The advantage to this, is the ease and time saved cleaning, needing less frequent washes whilst maintaining a high gloss level. longevity is 18 months initially, though can be increased to 3 years plus with the use of accompanying maintenance shampoo "nano magic". Costs for this start from £350 for an application and increase accoring to car size and requirements.
For a more permenant protection, with abrasion resistance, we start to look at true nano ceramics, such as Gtechniq C1 or Crystal Serum light, and IGL Quartz, These act like an ultra fine layer of glass, a hard wearing barrier between your paint and the elements. Super-hydrophobic and easy to maintain, they resist a good level of abrasion and chemical marring, typically around 7-9h in hardness on their own, but adding up to 4h to the paint's natural hardness. Because of their permanency, they do need a higher level of preparation and a controlled application environment to properly bond to the surface, but in return you get a superb high gloss finish, and protection lasting up to 3 years, extendable with proper maintenance. Starting price for these would be £495
For a different type of protection, our Swissvax Accredited Detailer status allows us access to their premium protection products such as Swissvax Endurance, a cured SiO2 wax which combines the longevity of a coating, with the warmth and flexability of a wax. Durable for 18 months+ it also allows for regular top ups with other Swissvax products such as Shield, for those who prefer to take an active interest in maintenance, whilst still providing the legendary Swissvax "glow" effect to paintwork with minimum effort, As recommended by manufacturers such as Bentley, Porsche, Lamborghini and Rolls Royce. and available from £495
At the highest end of the options list is a very special product.

The coating, once bonded and cured, leaves a hydrophobic water contact angle of 120 degrees for jaw-dropping water shedding capabilities, advanced waterspot resistance, and a silky smooth touch to paintwork, enhancing every finish to its maximum potential,
Starting price for IGL Kenzo application is from £795 and requires a minimum of 72 hours to complete.
These are just some of the options available to protect and preserve your new vehicle's paintwork, but the focus is giving you, the owner more time to enjoy your vehicle and maintain it's value, and less time worrying about it's appearance.
