GEN-3 Glasscoat is a complex formula which is liquid glass that when professionally applied bonds to your car's paint surface and forms a hardened Ceramic glass finish. It is one of many innovative and technically superior products supplied by Paintseal Europe Limited. The advanced NASA designed technology formulation ensures that dirt and grime are easily removed from painted surfaces. The hydrophobic action is demonstrated by the way it repels liquids and it’s extremely resilient to all kinds of environmental pollutants. GEN-3 Glasscoat has exceptional resistance to the effects of car washes, solvents and animal matter. Keeping you car looking newer for longer without the need of waxes and polishers.
The Polysilazane (liquid glass) 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 programs 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 neighbor-to-neighbor 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.
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/clear coat 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 our GEN-3 Glasscoat, and helps to explain the product's superior durability and solvent resistance performance in independent laboratory controlled testing.
Paintseal Europe Limited - The owners of it’s market leading GEN-3 Glasscoat ‘The World’s Greatest Vehicle Exterior Paint Protection’ including a full 5 Year Warranty.
Others have and are still trying to imitate/replicate their World Class GEN-3 Liquid Glass Ceramic Coating, many products are being sourced that simply do not compare with the GEN-3 Product.
Some products appearing within the market place are claiming to be the same or as good as the GEN-3 Glasscoat unique formulation and performance. The facts clearly demonstrate that this is not the case. These unproven products tend to be sourced from the Far East and are known to harm vehicle plastics and rubbers.
These imports also tend to have a low solid content (less than 2% active ingredient) and poor quality solvents and adhesion agents. To be blunt, more often then not they simply don't work.
