If you look at the paintwork of a new or used vehicle under a microscope you will see lots of imperfections, known as ‘castellations’. As your vehicle’s paint ages these castellations attract all manner of environmental pollutants that degrade the paint, causing oxidation and fading. Our UK Made ceramic paint protection system, permanently etches invisible layers of powerful and durable sealant into the surface of the paintwork, filling in the castellations and creating a super-smooth, high-gloss, ultra-protective finish.
Ceramic protection should not be confused with traditional paint protection, polish or wax type protections which break down frequently.
The ability to repel rain, mud, and dirt. Unlike wax or factory paint, the ceramic coating does a better job of protecting the exterior of the car. The best car coating products have hydrophobic properties and will make water and rain bead instead of a pool on the panels. Mud and acid rain splashed onto paintwork should slide off the smooth surface without leaving a stain. The same goes for snow, bird droppings, or ice as they are less able to adhere to the surface.
Prevent UV damage, rust, and oxidization. For the most part, leaving your car in the sun for too long tends to cause the car’s paint to fade and even crack. The ultraviolet rays of the sun have a destructive effect on the painted surface. A good ceramic coating will go a long way to preventing this damage as well as other forms of erosion such as rust and oxidization.
Cost effective. Since car wax doesn’t last more than three months on average, you need to get your vehicle re-waxed a lot more often. Or you’ve got to do it yourself! Ceramic coatings are more durable, and a good coating with proper maintenance can serve you for a good few years before it needs reapplying. In the end, you save more money with ceramic coatings than with wax or paint sealant.
Improved protection. With a ceramic coating your vehicle gets a semi-permanent layer of protection that bonds with the paint on a molecular level. That protective layer is tougher than a soft wax and can withstand ultra-harsh treatment both from the terrain and the elements. In effect, you’re not just protecting the paint, but also protecting the body of the vehicle itself against minor scratches, chemicals, and anything else that gets thrown at it.
Glossy finish. Regular car waxes have an appearance when freshly applied and warm that gets dull when left out in the open. Compare that to the sharp polished appearance of a ceramic top coat. It gives a high-gloss finish that doesn’t fade under the sun or with the passage of time.
We’re so confident in the ceramic product that we use, it comes with a guarantee for as long as you own the vehicle!
The detailing team at Devonshire Motors will complete a full decontamination wash on your vehicle ensuring all waxes and previous sealants are removed from your new car’s paintwork.
Zirconite ZQ9H bonds directly to the paintwork creating a protective coating, like a second skin that resists attack and contamination from pollutants and road grime. Once the Zirconite system has been applied it shields against the effects of the Sun's UV rays, acid rain, sea and road salt and provides a high gloss finish which retains its appearance wash-after-wash.
With regular maintenance you may never need to polish your vehicle again, for the duration of the guarantee!
We recommend a monthly wash with pH Netural car shampoo, without a wax additive, as the best means of keeping your coating in good condition and we can advise you on how best to look after your vehicle using Zirconite’s aftercare product range which includes Express Detailer, Shampoo, Tyre Dressings and more.
Because vehicle detailing isn’t our core business we don’t need to charge the earth for Ceramic Paint Protection. Protecting your vehicles paintwork properly isn’t as expensive as you may think.
