Colour Shield’s main difference is the longevity of the product when compared to standard waxes here are some common FAQ. You will save yourself a lot of time and money with just one application. Car dealers prepare every car to give a maximum shine in the showroom. They do this with either standard waxes or various types of paint polish to give the car a high gloss shine.
Subsequently at the time of closing, car dealers will try to sell you a “premium” paint protection at anywhere from $300 to $599; The very reason we compiled these faq is to make people aware that these “premium” paint sealants make the car look really great for about a month, however then the waxes begin to wash off and the paint starts oxidizing.
Most of the dealers guarantee their sealants for 3 to 5 years but they have to be reapplied about 4 to 6 times per year! The dealer knows that few people will actually do this, therefore they make a tremendous profit on these “premium” paint protection up sells, more faq below.
Applying Colour Shield is very easy to do. The entire application process, can take as little as one hour. Colour Shield performs best when it’s applied in temperatures above 65 Degrees F. or 10 Degrees C. Please read application instructions for three very effective methods.
Colour Shield does remove minor scratches and swirls however it will not remove oxidation. It preserves paint. If your paint is already oxidized therefore you will need to remove it using a fine grade cutting compound before applying Colour Shield.
It is safe to use Colour Shield on most painted plastic parts. We DO NOT recommend you use it on black rubberized body parts or trim; however Colour Shield works extremely well on polished alloy, chrome or stainless steel surfaces as well as plexi-glass.
