TOMORROWS TECHNOLOGY - TODAY
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:
Cohesion: 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.
Adhesion: 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.
PERFECT CERAMIC PAINT PROTECTION
“We currently have the best paint protection in The World,” stated Graham Higton CEO of Paintseal Europe. “All the independent testing carried out on our behalf in The USA has confirmed what we always knew about GEN-3GLASSCOAT. It is incredibly durable and withstands everything that the environment can throw at it. We now even insure the product against the effects of birdlime without the normal small print in the guarantee. This new facility will be available to any new customers. This is unique to GEN-3GLASSCOAT'S brilliant ceramic chemistry. Our product is dramatically different to anything else that is currently available in the market place”.
GEN-3GLASSCOAT is not widely available and that is the way Paintseal Europe like it. "We deliberately protect our product and keep our distribution tightly controlled. Glasscoat is exclusively supplied to only GEN-3Glasscoat approved distributors. This ensures high consumer satisfaction because fitting standards are high".
“We know that we have the best product and are doing the right things, when competitors are emulating everything that we do at PSE, as well as trying to buy the company! We have now also been approached by several Grand Prix (Formula One) teams who wish to be associated with the product. PSE is now the only officially licenced supplier of products to British Superbikes and The Isle of Man TT race series”.
After the rapid improvements in paint technology developed by Car Manufacturers, it became obvious to us that consumers buying expensive paint protection packages from their dealers, were getting poor value for money. Certainly, the paint work looks glossy at first, however the protective finish rapidly deteriorates unless the car is hand washed with a very mild shampoo.
Our search for a solution finally ended with the discovery of ceramic technology. Its amazing durability and the fact that it is impervious to aggressive chemical cleaners, means that consumers are now able to purchase a real value for money product. Vehicles can now keep their showroom shine and are easy to clean due to the amazing hydrophobic properties of GEN-3GLASSCOAT(including alloy wheels).
Our philosophy is based on quality and value for money. GEN-3GLASSCOAT is the only product available that delivers all of these important core values for you the consumer.
