Mini Cooper S | Super Hydrophobic Coating

Mini Cooper S | Super Hydrophobic Coating

This car was already in excellent condition and looking very shiny, but the customer wanted a coating to help maintain it.

We gave the car a full exterior detail, washed it, clayed the paintwork to remove any contaminants, and then machined polished it using our two stage system.

Once the paintwork was as near perfect as we could get it, we coated it with Fireball Super-Hydro, a polymer sealant which amazing hydrophobic properties. It makes the paintwork super-slick so dirt and water can't cling to it. In fact, when it rains, the water will just roll off, taking the dirt with it.

Eventually it will get dirty, but  you will have to clean it far less often, and when you do clean it, it will be easy, so your time doing maintenance will be cut drastically.

What is a polymer car sealant?

A polymer coating dries into a plastic-like film which is like a Teflon non-stick coating. Many of these sealants contain PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) which are extremely durable and slippery. These products have been on the market for over 20 years and are tried and tested. They are also a cost-effective alternative to ceramic coatings.
