Frequently Asked Questions
These are ten of the questions that we are asked most regularly. If you have any questions that are not covered here, please do not hesitate to Contact Us. We will get back to you as soon as we possibly can to answer your questions.
How should I wash my car?
Washing your car is incredibly easy once treated with Supagard glass coating! If you wash your car regularly you will not even need to use shampoo, you can simply hose the car down and wipe it dry with a chamois leather to stop water spots. If the car has not been washed for a while or the dirt is 'baked on', we recommend washing it in the usual manner with car shampoo. Your car will come up looking beautiful every time!
Can I apply a wax on top of the coating?
Yes, although it will have a very short-term effect. Virtually all waxes and polishes are silicone-based and whilst they can be applied on top of Supagard's paint sealant, and may increase the gloss effect, they will tend to last only a few weeks before washing off. After the car is treated with Supagard, you will find the reflection in the paintwork will be pin-sharp and the overall finish will be extremely shiny. You will not need to wax or polish again!
How do your products compare to other brands in the market?
There are many actual measurable differences between Supagard and even the most expensive of our competition - they all stem from the fact that our coating is radically different from the rest. Virtually all the coatings in the market are Polymer-based. We have chemically engineered the world's leading Polysilazane based formula. There are massive differences that are outlined in our Buyer's Guide, which we would urge you to read. Even compared to other Polysilazane coatings, Supagard is superior as it has been created to have the maximum level of active ingredients that the chemistry allows, with up to four times that of competitors.
Supagard's formula went through an extensive R&D stage that lasted over the last 14 years to ensure that it is simply the most effective formula available on the market. In accelerated weather testing (conducted by an independent laboratory in Florida, USA) the structure of the coating was found to be over 99% intact after 5 years. No other paint sealant currently on the market came close! Please refer to the Performance Tests under our Science section of this site.
How long does the Polysilazane coating last?
The Polysilazane 'glass' coating to last, with regular use and weekly washing, for approximately 7 years on the protected surfaces of the car. Our promise to you is that your car will look as good as the day it was treated for at least 5 years... and that we guarantee!
Will it crack after a period of time or after an accident?
No, the chemical make-up of this product makes it flexible. The coating contains elastomeric polymers which enable it to expand with the metal of the car's panels as they become hot with exposure to direct sunlight and an accident will have no effect on the areas not directed impacted.
Does it protect against UV rays for the length of the Guarantee?
Yes, the colour that the paintwork s when it is coated, will be the exact same colour after the term of the Guarantee. The product is completely UV stable and the paintwork will not fade or discolour. Guaranteed!
What happens if I want to respray a damaged panel of my car?
It's easily done. We recommend a body-shop use a professional coarse compound to firstly remove the original coating, then repaint and then reseal with the Polysilazane.
Can I apply Polysilazane on top of a car that has already been treated with it?
Yes, the self-levelling compounds in the chemical make-up means that the polymers interlink with each other on top of each other. This also means that a panel can be 'touched-up' with their being no visible difference between the existing layer of coating and the newly applied one.
Can I apply Polysilazane on top of an existing wax or polymer coating?
Yes, as part of the application we would first use Supagard's Pre-Clean Solution on the car. This would chemically remove all existing polymer or wax coatings, polishes and other contaminants in the paintwork to ensure the Polysilazane will bond perfectly to the lacquer.
Will Traffic Film Remover (TFR) remove or damage my coating?
No, Supagard's glass coating chemically bonds to the actual lacquer of the paint and is chemically resistant and cannot be chemically removed.
