OUTSTANDING CAR PAINT PROTECTION SYDNEY
Paint Protection is one of the most important and polarizing parts of detailing. As a whole, there is an incredible amount of misinformation as well as a lot of different brands and options to choose from. Detail Artist is a specialist in providing graphene and glass coatings in Sydney.
Detail Artist aims to take a different approach for all potential clients. We offer transparent advice regarding a variety of brands and provide the client with the best information possible.
The bottom line is that any product applied to your paintwork can be classified as ‘paint protection’. Unfortunately, this means that there is scope for a lot of exaggerated claims taking advantage of the customer’s ignorance.
The three major categories of new car paint protection in Sydney, includes –
- Waxes – Click Here to see our Swissvax handmade wax range.
- Synthetic Sealants
- Graphene/Quartz/Glass Coatings
Coatings, in general, are preferable to waxes and synthetic sealants due to their chemistry, longer-lasting lifespan and superior protective qualities. Common and popular coating brands include Opticoat Pro, Ceramic Pro 9H, CQuartz Finest, Pompanazzi and Gtechniq Crystal Serum just to name the best ones. These are all fantastic options and should be considered for your new or old car.
The major issue in Sydney for paint protection is that many car dealerships and some detailers are charging top pricing for synthetic sealants and waxes. These products simply do not last and are grossly overpriced.
We regularly post detailing articles on our blog, and here are some articles that may also provide more information when choosing paint protection:

HYDROPHOBIC BEADING FROM GLASS COATINGS
ADVANTAGES OF GLASS COATINGS
Coatings are the newest and most advanced technology when it comes to protecting your vehicle. The majority of coatings comprise of SiO2 or Silicone Dioxide which is pure Glass or Quartz. These 'glass' coatings are permanent in nature and in many elements are superior to the other forms of protection. The cost is also a lot higher compared to a wax or sealant, given the nature and work that goes into each application.

Coatings provided 3 major benefits:
- Hydrophobicity – creates a surface of beads where water will literally run off the surface.
- Intense Gloss – The surface will have added depth and clarity from the glass coating.
- Physical Resistance – protects from abrasions, bird droppings, watermarks or graffiti.
Unlike Waxes and Sealants, the nature of applying glass coatings takes much longer as the coating needs to cure. Depending which coating, the curing time may vary and this also affects the cost.
Detail Artist strives to provide the best results through out quality of work but also the quality of the products we choose to use.
