Ceramic Coatings

The history of shine protection

Car lovers and car owners have sought ways to preserve their "new car" shine ever since the first automobile rolled off the assembly line in 1913. In those days, large cities had road improvement projects that “paved” rough-hewn, dusty roads with gravel, brick, seashells, and oiled earth; and rural roads were little more than muddy ruts that became impassable in rainy weather. All of these materials were unforgiving on car paint, but ironically, in today's crowded, industrial environment, your car paint still lives in a brutal environment.

While rich Carnauba waxes and wax sealants have paved the way for better protection, they still have a short life span of just a few weeks.

Ceramic coatings: durable, long-lasting protection

Nothing compares to the longevity, durability, and sustained brilliance of semi-permanent "nano-particle" coatings! Thanks to innovations in aerospace technology, high-end protective coating formulas create a bond with the paint surface that cannot be removed by ordinary means. They will not wash off, wipe off, or wear off under normal circumstances!

Sticklers 4 Details offers several effective, affordable ceramic exterior coatings that provide the most consistent results for automotive paint. The hydrophobic properties in Gtechniq's coatings create a protective shield that forces rain and water to bead up on the surface so it simply blows off or wipes off without leaving streaks and water spots.

Sticklers 4 Details is Northern Colorado's accredited and certified GTechniq installer.

Crystal Serum Ultra

Crystal Serum Ultra is the most exclusive composite ceramic coating on the market applied only by accredited installers keeping your vehicle looking glossy and new, preserving the life of a the vehicle’s finish at a premium level.

The key to Crystal Serum Ultras performance gain is the ultra durable bonding of a revolutionary flex base layer and increased ratio of cross-linkers which reinforce and thicken the top layer of the coating forming a superior hard layer known as 10H. The 10H rating is the hardest surface rating measured as this characteristic offers extreme abrasion resistance and the most durable preservation to the paint system.The hard 10H top layer has shown improved swirl resistance over regular 9H paint protection coatings making crystal serum ultra the ultimate protective paint coating.

Compared to standard ceramic paint coatings, Crystal Serum Ultra can withstand even the strongest wash chemicals and bird droppings.The molecular structure of the hard top layer is exceptionally chemical resistant and also displays extreme resistance against element etching and fading due to UV rays.

An additional benefit from having a flexible base layer and hard top layer is this makes Crystal Serum Ultra the hardest composite ceramic that is highly resistant to extreme heat changes, even from -40 degrees Celsius to +250 degrees Celsius.

Crystal Serum Ultra with EXO Ultra Durable Hydrophobic Coating offers a unrivaled 9 year guarantee on protection and performance. We also guarantee our application process to help promote the 9 year guarantee for performance.

 

Crystal Serum Light

When it comes to adding superior gloss, resisting swirls, contaminant and dirt-repellency, Crystal Serum Light is the pinnacle in paint protection. This ceramic coating system consist of 2 layers to achieve a hard inorganic 9H base layer topped with a ultra durable hydrophobic top layer to provide 5 years of guaranteed protection and performance.

Crystal Serum Light inorganic 9h base layer with EXO Ultra Durable Hydrophobic Coating offers a unrivaled 5 year guarantee on protection and performance. We also guarantee our application process to help promote the 5 year guarantee for performance.

Crystal Serum Light forms an ultra- durable, high-gloss, slick to the touch, chemically bonding inorganic layer of 9H optically clear ceramic.  Once applied, gloss levels will remain in the upper 90th percentile for significantly longer when compared to traditional paint protection products, and cleaning your car will be a breeze.

The high density ceramic layer is resistant to chemicals ranging from pH2 – pH12.  This characteristic also makes bonded contaminants such as tree sap, tar, and hard water spots, easy to remove and prevent environmental impacts.

Unlike mainstream paint protection products and organic polymer coatings, Crystal Serum Light can resist much higher and lower temperature and resist temperatures as low as -40o to as high as +250o C.

Inspiration Ceramic Coating

INSPIRATION Ceramic Coating provides two exceptional layers of durable long lasting protection unlike traditional products.

INSPIRATION Coating cures to form a solid molecular barrier impervious to chemicals, corrosion, UV exposure and high temperatures.

INSPIRATION creates an impenetrable hydrophobic layer of protection.

A finer, stronger and more condensed nano particle was designed utilizing a new proprietary nano material to create a 3D crystalline structure, which creates a durable 9H structure on the vehicle’s painted surface.

This gives your vehicle extremely durable layers of protection for 3 years. INSPIRATION achieves an outstanding increase in hardness, up to 2H beyond the original surface hardness and also delivers high gloss and durability at an unmatched level.

INSPIRATION ceramic coating with 2 layers offers a 3 year guarantee on protection and performance. We also guarantee our application process to help promote the 3 year guarantee for performance.

Sticklers 4 Details corrects it and then protects it.

Because protective coatings seal in the beauty of your vehicle's paint surface, all coating applications require a complete exterior paint correction prior to application, to remove any and all imperfections from the surface, including uneven paint, holograms, and fine scratches.
