What Is A Ceramic Coating?
The easiest way is to understand Ceramic Coatings are to think of them as a second layer of skin, or a sacrificial layer of protection over your car’s clear coat/lacquer.
Based on SiO2 technology, the complex nano particle structure offers exceptional bonding of the coating to the surface providing long term protection to every surface (paintwork, alloy wheels, glass & metal) of your vehicle. This is real protection from harmful environmental factors such as UVA and UVB rays, acid rain, pollution, bugs, tar, bird droppings and many more contaminants that are looking to damage your car.
A ceramic coating forms a semi-permanent bond with a vehicle’s paint, meaning that it does not wash away or break down and does not require repeated application every few months like a carnauba wax or synthetic sealant would.
A ceramic coating repels dirt and water like nothing else, which makes them easier to clean. Their hardness helps to reduce swirl marks and marring from routine washing.
A Ceramic Coating is not a substitute for Paint Protection Film, which provides a more comprehensive form of defensive against stone chips, scratches and minor abrasions.
The Beginning of ECHELON
The car detailing market in Japan has continued its growth in past 30 years. During these years, we have provided many specialty products to customers varying from auto detailers, automakers, to retailers for about 20 years.
We were one of the first companies which have focused attention on auto body coatings and started developing new products at the same time, in an era when organic emulsion products were still popular in the market.
That has led to the birth of ECHELON, which marked a major turning point for auto body coatings. ECHELON forms a glass layer made of inorganic materials compared to others that were mostly made from organic materials.
We adopted a revolutionary new material of SiO2 glass layer and provided excellent protection and weather-resistant power. ECHELON attracted attention due to its revolutionary characteristics of being able to choose from several finishes (such as hydrophilic or water repellent) and different ways of detailing.
The birth of ECHELON has become a major catalyst for glass coatings to become well known within the Japanese auto detailing business.
The New Zen-Xero Technology Promises Advanced Durability and Super Water-repellency Effect
・New Zen-Xero technology features special primer agent, Accelerator to ensure an even stronger bonding between the glass coating and the painted surface.
・The durability of the coating is as high as 2-3 years.
・The thick glass coating layer adds deep gloss and shine, perfect for dark-colored cars.
・Greatly reduces stains by the "dynamic water-repellent technology" which activates the flow of water due to high surface smoothness.
・Maintains the super water-repellency due to the new technology, completely fusing glass components and fluorine and uniformly aligning it throughout the coat.
・Excellent chemical resistance such as anti-acid properties due to the special fluorine components.
・Enables uniform and high-quality application by only one-time application of a 2-component mixture.
