What are Ceramic Coatings

 The perfect shine is the Holy Grail of the automotive appearance industry. For over a century, professionals have sought a magical solution—a long-lasting shine product that repels dirt, environmental contaminants, and rain so the vehicle’s paintwork has the best protection available. Something that would uphold a new car shine longer than waxes while saving razor-thin clear coats from needing to be buffed. The solution? Ceramic coatings. 


 Ceramic coatings, are liquids which, when applied to a vehicle’s paintwork, chemically bond with the surface to form a glossy, long-lasting barrier that repels water, contaminants and UV rays. Their purpose is to preserve, protect and enhance the appearance of an unblemished finish.  



Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light

When it comes to adding gloss, resisting swirls, contaminant and dirt repellency, Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light is at the forefront of paint protection


Serum Light forms an ultra- durable, high-gloss, slick to the touch, chemically bonding inorganic layer of 9h optically clear ceramic.  Once applied, gloss levels will remain in the upper 90th percentile for significantly longer when compared to traditional paint protection products, and cleaning your car will be a breeze.


The high density ceramic layer is resistant to chemicals ranging from pH2 - pH12.  This characteristic also makes bonded contaminants such as tree sap, tar, and hard water spots, easy to remove.


Unlike mainstream wax and organic polymer coatings, Crystal Serum Light can resist much higher and lower temperatures.  They resist temperatures as low as -40o to as high as +250°c.
