Bird Mess Marks
This is a quick clip showing damage by bird mess, which has etched its way right through the clear-coat and permanently damaged the finish of this Toyota.
It has to be said that we don't see damage to this extent every day, and it is possible that something was wrong with the clear-coat. Maybe the formula was a little off, maybe the bell was too far away when it was sprayed on, maybe it didn't cure properly? After all, we have all seen delamination of clear coat, and we know these things can happen and reveal themselves after several years. But it doesn't change the fact that bird mess is highly corrosive, and modern acrylic finishes aren't very resistant to it.
We would suggest that any kind of coating would help resist this kind of damage. A good coat of wax, regularly applied, would offer some protection if you were able to remove the bird's mess quickly. But a polymer, graphene or ceramic coating offers the best protection.
