Elite Car Detailing are extremely pleased to introduce Siramik Glasscoat to their list of services and now have a SiRamik accredited status.
Siramik SC – 15 Glasscoat
SiRamik Surface Coat SC15 is an ultra durable ceramic coating that is very popular with our clients and enthusiasts alike, with stunning wet looks and excellent water behaviour. SC15 can be applied to paint, wheels, plastic trim and glass (with the exception of the windscreen), so one product for all surfaces.
After extensive research and field testing a brand new Advanced Protection Technology for vehicle paintwork, glass, wheels and plastic is provided.This is a 2 part system that contains extreme elements of Silicon to form an ultra durable and tough coating that has the ability to withstand levels of bird lime, paintwork marring and the like, with a potential durability of over 3+ years. Advanced Protection Technology (APT) takes 2 coatings where combined boast 175% glass coating ingredient, to produce not only a super durable protection package, but one that looks stunning with extreme levels of gloss.
Part 1 SC-HR (Heat Resistance Coating)
This is the base layer, containing the highest Silicon of the 2 coatings and has been formulated to withstand heat to the extreme temperatures of exhausts and engine components, this is ideally suited for paintwork, alloy wheels and brake calipers, as the base layer for the paintwork this is the toughest and strongest and alone will provide in excess of 2 years.
Part 2 SC-Ultima
Ultima is the upper coating of the APT system that will provide the extreme gloss and crisp clarity that will create an unbelievable hydrophobic layer, adding further protection and superior cleaning abilities. Ultima is also as with SC-HR, suitable for all plastics where durability is again excellent. As with coatings of this technology most would require infra red drying times but Ultima is a 60 minute fast cure with no IR needed, however overnight curing indoors is imperative to the coatings initial protection.
How and where is it applied?
APT (Advanced Protection Technology) can only be applied in a controlled working environment by a recognised and accredited Siramik Glasscoat application specialist. The vehicle in question will be subjected to numerous levels of decontamination and cleansing processes, prior to any machine polishing correction that may be required (additional costs may incur dependant on the level of defects), before finally applying no less than 2 layers of the coatings to the paintwork and 1 of SC-HR on wheels.
Part 3 (optional) Diamas Professionali
Diamas Professionali contains aggregated diamond nanorods, completely unique and a world’s first in protective coatings. Diamas has taken liquid protection to the highest possible level, where crystal clear paintwork is the result of an optically clear coating that will not mute any metallic flake, pearl or solid colour, meaning the paint you choose is the paint you see.
Siramik Glasscoat are proud to be the first paintwork protection brand in the world to introduce a true diamond coating for vehicle paintwork. Over 12 months of research, testing and development have now come to fruition, and can now unleash the ground breaking technology of “Daimas Professionali”.
Diamas Professionali contains aggregated diamond nanorods, sometimes referred to as ADNR’s, with this we have taken liquid protection to the highest possible level, where crystal clear paintwork is the result of an optically clear coating that will not mute any metallic flake, pearl or solid colour, meaning the paint you choose is the paint you see. It is commonly known that diamonds are the hardest material known to man, not to mention the most precious. Diamas Professionali utilizes ADNR’s in sizes no greater than 3-4n, meaning on a nano scale these are used as an anchor for the coating which in turn strengthens the layer applied, giving a more stable protective barrier, as a whole ADNR’s have a combined strength of which has been measured at stronger than a diamond itself.
Why is Diamas Professionali different to other coatings?
Diamas differs to other coatings because of not only the chemical make up and blend, but it’s “water contact angle”, with a contact angle of up to 112 degree, water moves rapidly over the surface giving superior self cleaning, somewhat similar to a lotus leaf. However this is not the only fact that sets the coating apart, as also the receding contact angle is extremely low and water will begin to slide at 20 degree angles or greater. This is where Diamas Professionali is breaking barriers within paintwork protection, non wettability through excellent hydrophobicity and sliding angles combined. Diamonds have a high refractive index meaning light does not pass straight through, but bounces back and forth. Diamonds also exhibit fluorescence giving an appearance of multiple light sources that provide the “prism” effect, whilst the dispersion of light is only moderate the refractive index allows light to hit the paint particles, bounce back and around & not straight through, making the particular paint type outstanding in class, enhancing the particles and allowing the owner to see the true value of the paintwork beneath the protective layers.
