RK Motors Ceramic Coating
So, you’ve invested a large portion of your hard-earned money into owning your dream car. Since you want that investment to always look its best, you start compiling a long list of detailing supplies. Topping that list is a quality carnauba wax that you’re sure will protect your new baby from the worst of Mother Nature’s wrath.
But here’s the thing about wax: it’s soft and fleeting. And wouldn’t you rather maximize your time enjoying your new ride, instead of spending one weekend a month pushing a buffer? That’s where your friends at RK Motors come in. Partnering exclusively with the Smart Surface Scientists at Gtechniq, our skilled technicians will create a custom blend of paint correction and composite ceramic coating that’s sure to keep your car looking incredible. Best of all, because of Gtechniq’s exceptionally engineered finishes, it’ll make the exterior surfaces of your classic easier to detail and maintain.
Founded in 2001 by quantum physicist Drew Gill, Gtechniq had one goal: ‘To engineer the world’s most beautiful, perfectly finished, smartest and most intelligent surfaces. Surfaces that do much more than simply look great when new’. Gtechniq’s line of surface preparation and finishing products are designed to perfect, protect and maintain all automotive, marine and aviation exteriors in a way traditional treatments simply can’t. Over the last 17 years, Gtechniq has continually improved its products to create a range that outshines, and outlasts, anything on the market.
RK Motors’ ceramic coating process begins with a custom paint correction plan that strikes a perfect balance between how much work the car needs and how much money its owner wants to spend. After paint correction, an application of Gtechniq’s C1 Crystal Lacquer literally becomes the functional surface of the car’s paintwork. C1 Crystal Lacquer’s crystalline film creates an excellent barrier between the car’s pigment and the minor abrasions of everyday operation, such as washing, finger prints and road grime. In fact, when tested against uncoated panels and panels with high-end carnauba wax, C1 Crystal Lacquer retains better gloss and exhibits 50% fewer swirl marks.
Our next step includes Gtechniq’s Serum Light coating, which adds a chemically bonded inorganic layer of optically clear ceramic. Ultra-durable, high-gloss and slick to the touch, Serum Light keeps your paint in the 90th percentile of gloss while affording super easy cleaning. Because Serum Light is resistant to chemicals ranging from pH2 to pH12, bonded contaminants like tree sap, tar and hard water spots are easily removed. And because Serum Light can resist temperatures from -40 to 482 degrees Fahrenheit, all-weather durability simply isn’t an issue.
For step three, we finish the car’s body with Gtechniq’s EXOv4. EXOv4 creates a consistent film that protects your ride from common chemicals like road salt and wash soap. Producing a high-gloss, warm-looking shine, it utilizes a slow flash-off time to make the car’s paint extremely hydrophobic. That property, combined with EXOv4’s enhanced swirl resistance, represents the latest innovation in Last Surface Protection technology.
Finally, we wrap the whole process up with hydrophobic window coating and Gtechniq wheel protection. Hydrophobic window coating is exactly what you might imagine: a non-stick, easy to clean film that repels water and greatly aids weather visibility. Gtechniq wheel protection uses exceptionally fine surface rheology to bond with your wheels and become a functional layer of protection against dirt, brake dust, stains and contamination.
What it all adds up to is peace of mind. Total surface protection for your investment, installed by the professionals at our own RKM Performance Center, starting at only $799. What’s better: Gtechniq guarantees their products for up to five years! Contact us for your free estimate.
