What is a Ceramic Coating?

As new cars roll off production lines, manufacturers apply clear coats to add depth, shine, and protect paintwork from UV radiation and pollution.

Sadly, over buffing and polishing by some express dealership detailers can compromise manufacturer applied clear coats. As a result, paintwork on cars just a few years old can start to dull and look visually lackluster. Ceramic coatings address this problem. Specifically, by creating an extra, more robust layer of paint protection.

  • Ceramic coatings like System X Diamond, are carefully applied by hand to car bodywork
  • As a transparent liquid polymer, System X Diamond bonds directly to factory applied paintwork
  • System X Diamond ceramic coating lasts for the lifetime of a vehicle, adding impermeable paint protection and lasting shine

Why System X Diamond?

Ceramic Coating is the permanent protection against chemical stains, UV and lite scratches. System X Diamond represents a revolutionary advance in paint protection. An exclusive, permanent ceramic coating which imparts a color enhancing gloss while protecting exterior surfaces for the Lifetime of new cars, and up to 8 years on used cars.
Element 119 is one of the first laboratories to harness SiO2 technology and is the leader in innovation and improvement of ceramic paint protection technology worldwide. To date, System X coatings have been on the market for 12-years. It’s been successfully tested by Boeing in 2015.
Like no other product, System X Diamond provides paint protection with previously unachievable levels of gloss, durability and chemical resistance.
Diamond was designed specifically for those with discerning tastes for an exceedingly rich and glossy finish, as well as its ability to resist elements and protect for the lifetime of your car.

SYSTEM X Ceramic Coating Benefits

Diamond ceramic coating forms a permanent, nano-ceramic, flexible glass shield, which improves existing car clear coat. However, unlike a regular car clear coat, System X nano ceramic coating is guaranteed to last the lifetime of a vehicle with the proper maintenance.

With Diamond, no reapplications are necessary. Instead, once cured, coatings provide a lifetime of robust paint protection from environmental pollution, abrasions, UV damage, and oxidation.

  • System X Diamond provide a level of bodywork protection which is so far unmatched in the automotive industry
  • Coatings preserve the gloss and shine of paint, even when vehicles are exposed to acid rain and industrial pollutants
  • Nano-ceramic technology repels stains and water, making cars easy to wipe clean, many years after application

New Ceramic Glass Coating Applications

At GleamWorks, we are fully accredited installers. We can apply new ceramic glass coatings to any Vancouver vehicle. To start, our detailing teams hand wash vehicles and use chemical degreasers to remove dirt, oil, and road grime. Once your car bodywork is in pristine condition, we then dry paintwork using compressed air. If necessary, we will also attend to any required paint corrections.

This protective finish gives your vehicle’s factory paint a mirror-like finish and long lasting protection that reduces the need for constant maintenance and extends the life of your car’s paint. This coating bonds to clear coat finishes and remains glossy for years, meaning you don’t have to worry about waxing again and again.

SYSTEM X Application & Curing

Before applying Diamond ceramic coating directly, GleamWorks washes the car, then decontaminates it and polish following treatment with Paint Preparation solution. This prepares existing car clear coat for optimal bonding with coating. We then apply System X Diamond nano ceramic coating as a liquid, making sure to coat all paintwork evenly.

Once complete, we allow Diamond to cure. However, full curing won’t be complete for 30 days after installation.

  • Nano Ceramic glass coatings are water resistant and resistant to pH neutral liquids within 24 hours
  • 3-days after installation, bodywork will benefit from full chemical resistance

Because System X requires one-time installation, ceramic coatings by GleamWorks represent the best value in Vancouver. Experience the benefits of clean, shine, constant car care, by scheduling your installation today.
