A Protective solution


It is basic human instinct to protect the things you love. From purchasing a screen protector or shatter resistant case for a new cell phone to installing rubber mats in vehicles over the winter month to prevent salt damage to carpet, the principle stays the same.

Automotive paintwork is delicate; causing it to be susceptible to various types of damage such as scratches, chemical etching, and UV radiation damage. The result of such exposure causes vehicles, even new ones, to look excessively aged. Over the years there have been various solutions such as waxes and sealants that are designed to protect paintwork from the elements, but the technology is outdated with the environmental/climate challenges that vehicles currently face on a daily basis. Nanotechnology now makes it possible to design a sacrificial barrier of ceramic coating that is durable enough to protect against harsh weather, salt, strong chemicals, environmental fallout and other harmful things. By designing structures on a nanoscale we can create a protecting layer that can be compared to a layer of glass applied on top of the clear coat. 

“Being based in Norway we know what kind of harsh elements automotive paintwork has to endure, and for us the goal is simple, to offer the best possible protection on the market. To stay ahead of the curve we include our ambassadors in the product development process. These are highly experienced detailers from all around the world, each providing valuable input on how we should design our products.” – Iver Svardal Founder & Managing Director Arctic Coating Norway
