Do You Want To Protect Your Investment?
We offer two types of paint protection to ensure your new purchase remains in the exquisite condition that we present it and retains the highest residual value – Ceramic Paint Protection and Paint Protection Film (PPF).
Ceramic Paint Protection: CQuartz Finest-Reserve
CQuartz Finest-Reserve ceramic paint protection is a semi-permanent ceramic coating that is precisely hand-applied in liquid form. Once cured with infrared heat – at a consistent 55 degrees – this exclusive professional-only ceramic coating forms a resilient and invisible scratch-resistant barrier that is much harder than manufacture paint whilst benefiting from enhanced protection from environmental elements (e.g. bird etching) and damage inflicted whilst cleaning (e.g. swirl marks). The superior hydrophobic quality features ‘self-cleaning properties’ which aid the surface’s ability to repel moisture, grime and general road debris making future cleaning and cosmetic maintenance much easier and less time-consuming. Available in a range of specialist variations we can apply protective ceramic coatings to almost every surface of your vehicle including paintwork, windows, wheels, brakes, exhaust, interior and even arch liners. This is by far the most cost effective way to protect your investment. But it’s not solely about protection, as the level of paint gloss produced by the coating is simply extraordinary.
As a CarPro CQuartz Finest-Reserve approved professional detailing centre (one of only 13 in the UK) all of our ceramic coatings come with a three-year manufacturer’s warranty from CarPro CQuartz and us.
Benefits of infrared cured CarPro CQuartz Finest-Reserve ceramic coating:
- Cost saving – We machine-correct paintwork for free (a labour-intensive service which takes around 30-40 hours) which is required before application of any ceramic coating and is the most expensive element of a detail (upwards of £800)
- Infrared bake – Creates a much denser, resilient and longer lasting coating compared to traditional air-dry methods
- Scratch and swirl resistance on paintwork
- Super hydrophobic surface makes it easy to clean
- Water spot resistance
- Self-cleaning properties with high dirt repellence
- Stain resistance up to PH14 (e.g. bird and insect etching)
- Sheltering your paintwork from environmental hazards (e.g. industrial fallout, road tar, iron particles from brake dust, road salt etc.)
- Clearer windscreen – water sheets off over 30mph, reduces frost and insects sticking
- Unique paintwork glow giving a deep and rich look at all times
Paint Protection Film (PPF): XPEL
Paint Protection Film (PPF) is a durable transparent film that is applied in specifically adapted pre-cut patterns to the vehicle’s body panels to endow them with a greater level of protection from damage – even more so than that achieved by ceramic coating. Once installed it is near invisible and is designed to greatly reduce the chance of stone chips, scratches or abrasions from impairing the paint finish. To ensure the highest longevity and protection we only use XPEL Ultimate Self-Healing paint protection film. This market leading film not only provides an invisible shield to ward off stone chips and environmental contaminants, but also has the ability to ‘self-heal’ any minor scratches or swirl marks with the application of heat or direct sunlight. Our PPF comes with an exclusive 10-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Expertly Applied by Automotive Addiction
Whichever option you choose, be it CQuartz Finest-Reserve ceramic paint protection or XPEL Paint Protection Film, both can be expertly applied by our team to your chosen vehicle before collection. Not only will this ensure that your purchase will retain the highest residual value and its impeccable Automotive Addiction finish for longer, but will also save you hundreds, if not thousands *, of pounds over having a similar installation completed in the future. This is because both options require the paintwork to be skilfully machine polished to a perfect finish before the treatment is applied, a service which Automotive Addiction carries out as standard (and at no additional cost) on all vehicles before sale.
*A similar paint correction service elsewhere would cost in the region of £800-1,000 by an established professional accredited detailer. Our paint correction service is FREE
