Gtechniq Ceramic Coatings

For over 12 years now TTautodetailing has specialised in complete Car Protection Packages supplied from Gtechniq.

We were there from the very beginnings many years ago when they had their first and only coating C1 Liquid Crystal.

Rob Earl Managing Director has grown the original business into one of the world leading Surface Coating Specialists (mostly in the car industry).

Now from that one original product they have every product imaginable for your pride and joy that really do offer durability and functionality to a daily driven vehicle or maximum shine and durability to your supercar or classic car.

We know the product inside out and Gtechniq continue to grow and evolve the products year in year out.


Coatings Benefits

You may well ask what is the purpose of these coatings. I will try to sum it up in a few sentences.

As with any coating the aim is to help reduce the effects of environmental damage being done and also to offer the best finish.

With these new type of nano ceramic coatings they offer the best way to this because of the nano scale structure to their makeup.

So another added benefit is that the surface is super slick and slippery and things cannot grip and stick to them as easily.

This makes foreign bodies such as dirt, tar, tree lime, bird droppings and other fallout less likely to damage the clear coat surface below.

Another benefit to this is that the surface is so much easier to wash dirt off or when you wash the car.

The new nano coating also offer good resistance to high temperatures and also low temperatures. Ranging from 250 down to -40 degrees.

So sunlight and winters can be driven through without any real damage being caused to the painted surfaces.

All these coatings have a limited life span but they can last a fair few years if cared for in the right way.

Paintwork Correction

Another side of the business is Paintwork Machine Polishing which is the method used to remove unsightly scratches and swirl marks from vehicles that can appear over time.

Many causes from bush scratches, bird mess damage, seeds from trees are a big factor in damaging laquer very quickly and many other foreign bodies such as bad wash technique which drag tiny particles of dirt around the car surface.

It is not uncommon for many cars to arrive from the dealership with some swirling already present.

This is for one main reason these days and that is the paintwork laquers are so ridiculously soft on many vehicles that they have to be valeted very sympathetically to maintain a good level of finish and not scratch them during the first valet even. (Tiny patterns of swirl scratches that you see under strong sunlight or street lamps at night).

We provide this service to bring the vehicle paintwork back to original as possible.

If the damage is too severe then we can also arrange repainting of panels, dent removal and wheel refurbishment.


Flat Sanding and full paintwork restoration

Sometimes we have worked with local paintshops to achieve a show car finish from a complete rebuild and respray by flat sanding and machine polishing the entire surface to achieve a flawless final finish.


Preparation Procedure

Maintenance Valeting Services

The other side of the business which is great for ongoing feedback about the products we use are to provide monthly to six weekly valets.

It is very important to point out that these valet are very sympathetic and designed to avoid inflicting any tiny scratches back into the paintwork and maintaining the coating structure for as long as is possible by using ph neutral shampoos and techniques that are kind to your car.

The idea is that you try and look after the vehicle in the right way with the right products if possible.

In the real world where people are too busy sometimes or just don't want to do it themselves we provide this valeting option if you are fairly local to us.
