Approved by 12 major motor manufacturers throughout the UK and Europe and endorsements by Lotus F1, Boeing (makers of Space Shuttle) and the world’s leading hyper-car manufacturer, Koenigsegg, guarantees that you are looking in the right place if you wish your vehicle to be treated with the world’s greatest paint coating product.
We are proud to be one of a handful of approved suppliers and installers of the Gen 3 Glasscoat system, GEN-3GLASSCOAT is a NEW complex formula, ceramic hardened glass finish which bonds to your car’s paint surface.
GEN-3GLASSCOAT is one of many innovative and technically superior products supplied under license by Paintseal Europe Limited. GEN-3GLASSCOAT’S advanced technology formulation ensures that dirt and grime are easily removed from painted surfaces. The hydrophobic action demonstrated by the product repels liquids and is extremely resilient to all kinds of damage.*
*Damage normally associated with acid rain, solvents and road salt should not create any issues. GEN-3GLASSCOAT has exceptional capability to resist the effects of car washes, solvents and animal matter.
GEN-3 GLASSCOAT exhibits superior cohesion and superior adhesion over waxes and polymer sealants currently on the market. The significant performance advantages over the other products are twofold:
The polysilazane chemistry of GEN-3 GLASSCOAT reacts out to 6-9H pencil hardness, whereas waxes, reactive silicones and acrylic polymers achieve the hardness of rubber cement. Reactive polymer chains exhibit low crosslink density- they do not readily bond to the paint surface, and this is one of the reasons that polymer based products sacrificial coatings require such intensive maintenance programmes and conservers, whereas GEN-3 GLASSCOAT does not. The molecules of GEN-3 GLASSCOAT are shorter than typical polymer chains, and each possesses multiple reactive sites. When fully reacted, GEN-3 GLASSCOAT contains hundreds to thousands of times more neighbour-to-neighbour chemical bonding than you see with polymer-to-polymer bonding. While the individual polymer strands don’t break, the low crosslink density means that they’ll separate, which causes polymer type coatings to lose their structural integrity. GEN-3 GLASSCOAT’s high crosslink density ensures excellent integrity to the paint coating, protecting against wear and degradation from the elements.
Like reactive polymer sealants, GEN-3 GLASSCOAT chemically reacts with hydroxyl (oxygen-hydrogen) groups. Such groups are present on other GEN-3 GLASSCOAT molecules (giving cohesion), but are also abundant on the surface of the paint/clearcoat system. GEN-3 GLASSCOAT’s high crosslink density enables it to “find” more hydroxyl groups to anchor to than is possible for a low crosslink density system, such as waxes and reactive polymers. Water vapor contributes hydroxyl groups, which makes them ubiquitous on all surfaces exposed to humidity. Proof of GEN-3 GLASSCOAT’s superior Cohesion and Adhesion: Organic solvent strips waxes and polymer paint sealants from any surface in a single swipe. Solvent molecules separate and undercut the polymers. GEN-3 GLASSCOAT, by contrast, is impervious to such solvents as mineral spirits, xylene, benzene, toluene, VM&P Naphtha, and acetone. Such resistance strikingly demonstrates the cohesive and adhesive nature of the GEN-3 GLASSCOAT coating, and helps to explain the product’s superior durability and solvent resistance performance in independent laboratory controlled testing.
