Paint Protection is the term used to describe the application of a sacrificial layer to a vehicle’s exterior so as to offer a safeguard from environmental contamination, scratches and swirls, oxidisation, UV damage and chemical etching (bird/bat poo etc). In addition to its protective properties, coatings by LAPD offer a car’s paintwork an insane level of mirror-like gloss that lasts for years on end even in the hot Australian sun.
A properly treated vehicle exhibits a high degree of self-cleaning abilities. Contaminants such as rain water, road grime, industrial fallout and dirt are much less likely to adhere to the surface of your vehicle, resulting in effortless washing and cleaning.
Coatings are only to be applied by a highly trained professional. It takes a minimum of 4 hours to effectively and thoroughly prepare a vehicle for application of a paint protection coating. Without proper paintwork decontamination and polishing, the lifespan of the coating is greatly reduced.
Once the coating is applied, it requires 12-24 hrs of curing time. During this time, the car cannot get wet, otherwise the coating will not achieve maximum hardness.
