How it Works
Colour Shield is a revolutionary car paint protection that uses high quality and durable acrylic elements. In layman's language the formulae is very expensive, high quality and a superbly engineered system. Each ingredient has its own function and enhances each other in the overall finished product.
The conglomerate is designed to:
Fill the paint pores with a unique PTFE plasticizer. This will form a barrier that will prevent penetration of any other elements.
The dimethoxysilydimethylaminoethylaminopropyl polymer and methyltrimethoxysilanes: Allow the total formula to plate, bond and crosslink. This product gives the depth of shine, durability, corrosion protection, spot resistance and excellent detergent resistance.
Phenylpropylsilsesquioxanes: Is the protector of all the others already in place. It is an acrylic which when fully cured, is a hard durable, antistatic, transparent, protective layer and gloss enhancer.
To allow all this to happen a special surface preparation is part of the system. In the preparation solution a 'cationic' (positive) surfactant is used to purge the pores of the surface to be treated, and magnetically charge the surface in a positive polarity. The pores are cleansed and charged and are ready to receive the unique 'anionic' or negatively charged molecules of polytetrafluoroethylene. They are pulled into the pores magnetically and held there while all of the protective chemicals have cross linked, bonded and cured, locking the PTFE into the paint and preventing drifting, fading and degradation of the paint for years to come. Solar heat will expand the PTFE molecules to give even further protection.
The above is a very technical explanation, but in simple terms, waxes do not protect the vehicles finish nor do silicones. The Paint Protection is the only System that has been engineered to solve all of the problems and preserve the painted surface for many years to come and best of all you can apply it yourself saving expensive application fees.
How is Colour Shield different from other Paint Protection
The technology is similar as the 'bar magnet' principle that opposite poles attract. The wash solution (polarizer step 1) cleans the pores of the paint and imparts a positive charge to it. (This can be visualised in photo 2 below)
No Heat - No Buff - No Scratch
The PTFE (step 2) is negatively charged and is thus pulled into the pores of the paint. (This can be visualised in photo 3 above). Only PTFE formulated in an anionic aqueous solution can seal paint. Other forms of PTFE will have no effect.
The reason our Paint Protection Outlasts and Outshines anything else you have ever used:
Ordinary car waxes have very little resistance to detergents and are easily washed off with each car wash. On a hot day or car panel the wax heats up and becomes soft allowing dust, industrial fallout and any other pollutants floating in the air, to be absorbed into the now sticky wax. The end result is that the wax traps dirt and pollutants next to the paint surface which is exactly what you don't want!
Each washing further degrades and washes off more of the wax until the paint is totally exposed to ultraviolet and infrared rays, acid rain, pollution, insects, photolysis and other destructive elements. The best known waxes (carnuba) are no match for the degradation of the natural elements and man-made pollutants. Waxes must be constantly applied every 5 to 8 weeks, to maintain a good protection.
