Thanks mate, just the one coat of Diamas to deepen the gloss and clarity of the metallic flake, and one of each coat of Heat Resistant & Ultima (APT system)

Does the Diamas add any hardness to the coat or is it purely to give a better finish?

Thanks

Diamas is protection in its own right with capabilities of 12-18 months but when used in conjunction with the APT system the results are mind blowing.

Hardness is a different story though as everything these days seems to claim to 9h, with Diamas containing ADNRS these act as an anchor to the coating so effectively creating a tougher bond, but thats not the be all and end all of it, contact angle of upto 112 degrees but an even more impressive slide angle of <20 degrees meaning surface water moves at the slightest of angles.

Hope this answers your question. My opinion go for it, you wont be disappointed.

Sorry mate, Russ has beat me to it, but he's best informed regarding the technical aspects. The APT system looks incredible alone, the Diamas adds a dynamic dimension to the clarity and depth, whilst adding further protection to the APT coating durability.
