Paint Protection Explained

Advanced paint protection

Whether you have a supercar, a classic or a daily drive, you have a vehicle that you care a lot about and it’s most likely the reason you’re looking into Paint protection for your vehicle. Toughseal has you covered! We understand that you want to keep it looking its best all the time, while keeping it protected from everything it will be exposed to on a daily basis out on the roads. When fully cured, Paint Protection increase the hardness of the outer layer of the surfaces they’ve been applied to. Think of a Paint Protection as a sacrificial layer. Exposure to all the possible influences that may compromise your vehicles finish is absolutely unavoidable, however, in the case of a vehicle that has a quality protection on it, those elements are in contact with the coating, not the vehicles paint or clear coat.

The Application

They can take 2-3 days to properly prep, apply and cure depending on the condition of your paintwork and especially in the case of ceramic coatings this should be done by a professional. They require regular care in order to maintain their integrity. Always use a high quality PH neutral car shampoo. However, please keep in mind that although these products are amazing in their own right, they are not some type of magic shield that will protect your finish from everything. Think of these coatings more of a sacrificial layer, a much more permanent and higher quality alternative to waxing.

Benefits of these products


Deep Glossy Shine

Who doesn’t love this?. As mentioned before, think of these coatings as a more permanent alternative to waxing. You know how good a vehicle looks right after it’s had a good wax, right? Imagine a finish like that, but one that will last for years with proper care.


Ease of Cleaning

Another great benefit of Ceramic Coatings is its hydrophobic nature. This means that water and water-based contaminants have a harder time sticking to the paint surface. The less that sticks to the vehicle, the less that needs to be cleaned off, and when it does need to be cleaned off, it cleans off so much easier, since the contaminants haven’t had a chance to start etching into your clear coat.


UV Protection

If your vehicle spends time outdoors, you know how hot it can get. You don’t want to be anywhere near those UV rays, how do you think your car feels? Think of paint oxidation like a sunburn on your skin. Yes, it takes much longer to get a car sunburn, however, you wouldn’t spend a whole day in the sun without sunscreen… these coatings act like sunscreen for your car, blocking out harmful UV rays from your clear coat and paint.


Resale Value

It is common knowledge that the better condition your vehicle is in, the more value it will have at the time you want to sell it. As paint protection protects the colour and finish of your paintwork during ownership, it affords you the best possible chance of getting the highest market value for it.
