What are ceramic protective coatings?

Nanotechnology has given life to nano resin products (ceramic coatings / glass coatings) which are being used in many applications across the automotive, marine and aerospace sectors. These coatings provide a clear protective barrier with unparalled hardness and heat resistance capabilities. For over 15 years ceramic coatings have been used to protect and enhance private motor vehicles and professional race cars / bikes all over the world. And now this type of product is more advanced and more affordable than ever.

Advantages & benefits of ceramic coating paint protection

  • Incredibly hard layer that helps protect your vehicles paint from stone chips, oxidisation, scratches, the suns rays, road grime, chemicals & pollutants
  • Provides protection for much longer as compared to wax - often lasting years if looked after correctly
  • Extremely glossy, mirror-like finish that lasts
  • Good hydrophobicity - in lamens terms this means water beads off the surface like water off a duck
  • Thermal & UV resistance to prevent paint fade
  • Easier to clean & maintain
  • Helps to repel dust and dirt to keep your car looking cleaner between washes

Who is Feynlab? Why use their products? And how can they offer such great value?

Based in America, Feynlab (pronounced fine - lab) are the originators of ceramic car care technology and have been manufacturing some of the most well known ceramic & glass coatings under private label (products manufactured by one company for offer under another company's brand) for over 15 years - so they have the knowledge, innovation and expertise to remain at the cutting edge of this technology. Now they have come out from the woodwork and are dealing directly with detailers like us across the world. Their prices are extremely competitive as they design, formulate and manufacture all their products in-house. This is exciting for us here at The Mobile Car Specialists as it essentially cuts out the middleman and allows us to offer a superior product at a better price to our customers.

Are ceramic coatings for new cars or used cars?

Both. Ceramic coatings are very popular with brand new cars as the paint needs very little preparation. Used cars require paint correction by cut & polish first as part of the preparation, as scratches & dull paint need to be rectified prior to application, otherwise they will still show under the surface.

I'm buying a new vehicle soon, should I have the ceramic coating done through the car dealership?

Some car dealerships offer this as an add-on service to their customers when purchasing new vehicles. Some offer a 'lifetime guarantee'. Does this mean the coating will last decades to come? No, not really. Lifetime guarantees are generally for the period that a person owns that vehicle - which is on average only a few years. Just make sure you check the fine print on these lifetime guarantees, and compare pricing vs value before agreeing to to go ahead with a dealership. When it comes to paint protection products, we believe the value you get with a Feynlab Ceramic coating is unbeatable in the New Zealand market.

I like the sound of this.. How does the process work?

  1. We drive to your home to carry out the work in your garage, or you can drop your vehicle to our private work shop in West Auckland where it will need to stay overnight inside our secure and alarmed premises. Either way, we require a fully enclosed and sheltered environment (garage or shed) with sufficient room to work and move around the vehicle.
  2. Your car must be reasonably clean of dirt and dust prior to our work commencing
  3. We prepare the surface prior to application. This will involve a cut and polish (additional cost) unless your car is brand new 
  4. The ceramic coating is applied (entire job taking approx. 2 - 3 hours)
  5. Your car must remain inside away from the weather for at least 12 hours to allow the coating to bond properly. Then.. you're vehicle is good to go!
