Glass coating for cars Australia | Protection

Glass coating for cars is relatively new in the automotive coating industry. This type of coating is not really made of glass. It does contain silica, which is also used for making glass, but that’s where the similarities end. Glass is made of the following materials: silica, sodium, calcium, magnesium, alumina and potassium. Glass coating, on the other hand, is made up of silicon, silica, fluorine and titanium. Technically, glass coating is just another type of car paint protection film.

The hydrophobic effect is when water or dirt touches a paint surface and is repelled. If you were to look under a microscope at normal paint that has not been treated, you would see it is not completely smooth. This allows dirt to form on the paint easier. Because water can’t settle onto the surface, dirt and water simply wash off, providing a clean surface and helping keep your paint cleaner longer. The coating is long lasting and UV stable. The glass coating can’t be removed by normal car washing. It is made to last a long time on the surface of your paint. CS-II guarantees your paint will have a smooth, shiny, lustrous surface for years to come.

With most other sealants or nano-coatings, dried water spots can still penetrate the coating. When this happens, it’s very difficult to remove. With our coating, water spots will not bond to the surface and are easily remedied.

Nano glass coating for cars

A nano glass coating for cars and nano glass camper is a protective coating which is based on nano-ceramic formula. There are super hydrophobic glass coatings available. Surfaces coated with glass coating will bead water, making rain water roll straight off the glass while driving at speeds of only 50km/h and higher, almost eliminating the need of windscreen wipers. A nano glass coating for cars will help keep your windscreen and glass surfaces cleaner for longer.

Nano glass coating for cars benefits:

  • Permanent adhesion; A nano glass coating for cars forms a permanent adhesion to the surface, which means no reapplication is required (subject to general wear and tear).
  • Chemical resistant; A glass coating is usually resistant to harmful chemicals that would otherwise remove other protective products on the market.
  • Latest ceramic technology; Find a glass coating company that is at the forefront of Ceramic Nanotechnology, with ongoing lab test and product updates to ensure the products are always leading the way.
  • UV resistant; The coating incorporates UV Stabilisers to ensure your paint work is always protected from harmful UV Rays which may cause fading or discoloration over time.
  • Easy to clean; Nano glass coating for car creates a hydrophobic surface, meaning liquids will bead up on the surface and can be easily wiped away.

Glass coating vs wax

Which is better, glass coating or wax? Simply stated, the difference between glass coating and wax is: 

  • Car wax uses an oil component as the main ingredient
  • Glass coating uses silicon (chemical formula: Si) as the main ingredient

Car glass coating reviews

If we talk about glass more specifically, the main ingredient of glass is Silicon Dioxide (chemical formula: SiO2) (O2: oxygen) hence the pure glass is made of Si and O2. Because glass coating and wax are made of different components, they are totally different. Each product has advantages and disadvantages so we compare features and effects glass coating and wax provide:

  • Price: Wax price is around from several $ to $1X so they are quite cheap. However, glass coating, even you apply it by yourself, costs you around from $100 to $200 based upon coating effectiveness and which parts to apply. When you ask a professional shop for glass coating, you need an additional several $XXX for the work.
  • Ease of application: How to use wax is that, spread wax on car body using a sponge and wipe. These jobs are quite hard jobs. Glass Coating has 2 different type of application methods, spray type or applied with a sponge. Spray type glass coating is quite easy to use, just spray it on car body and wipe. An another type glass coating is applied with a sponge and wipe, and this is done section by section to finish the entire car so that wax is easier to use compared to this type of glass coating because wax can be applied a broad area at once.
  • Application time: Wax is usually applied after car wash and its application requires spreading and wiping, which are hard jobs so take times. An application time of glass coating is based upon application methods. Spray type glass coating requires significantly less time to do coating on the entire car, and glass coating applied with a sponge takes time because coating job is done section by section to finish the entire car. However, this glass coating lasts long so re-application is not required for a long time. It can be said that the total amount time spent for coating is less than wax because wax needs to be applied frequently.
  • Protection: Glass coating establishes the high hardness glass coating layer and it protects car from scratches, UVs and other harmful substances. Its superior protection capability cannot be compared to wax because wax is not made for a car protection. Therefore, the glass coating surface performs as the “sacrificing layer” to protect your car. Minor scratches can be removed because those scratches are on the glass coating layer.
  • Glossiness: When just glass coating was introduced to the market, its glossiness was quite weak and wax had a superior gloss effect because wax is made of oil contents so that it can make a shine pretty easily. However, the glass coating technology has been advanced significantly, therefore glass coating is fully transparent and provides the exceedingly intense glossiness and currently glass coating provides by far more glossy shine finishing than wax. Also, the glossiness of glass coating is stated as “gloss like your car is wet”. This glossiness is the main reason why glass coating is chosen as the best.
  • Antifouling: Glass coating definitely has the superior antifouling effect compared to wax. Glass coating is never oxidized and deteriorated so that it does not collect dirt and dusts. Plus, an adhesion of dirt and dusts is significantly weakened on glass coating, hence easy car wash is enabled.
  • Water repellency: Since wax itself is oil, it has a sort of water repellent effect. Some glass coating products have the high water repellent effect by design and some of them are intendedly not, and the water repellent type glass coating provides the outstanding water repellent effect. When you chose glass coating, whether with the water repellency or not is mainly based upon your preferences.
  • Durability: Glass coating definitely has a longer durability than wax. Wax is just on car surfaces so that it is easily removed by rains and car wash. On the other hand, the adhesion of glass coating is exceedingly high, hence the glass coating layer cannot be removed by just rains and car wash.
