I'm loving SiRamik too, even the standard glass coat has now been on my Wife's BMW 1-Series for 18 months and it's still repelling dirt and beading superbly. Can't fault the stuff.

Nice work as always.

Thanks Jon, yes Volcano Red indeed.
Siramik coatings are excellent, and proving innovative in moving forward and not resting on their laurels.

Thanks, it is not necessary, although you would require more layers of the Diamas to reach the same effect. Generally you would apply 1 layer of HR (heat resistant ) 1 layer of Ultima and then subsequent layers of Diamas, although the beauty of the coatings are their versatility.

Any news on availability, cost and place to order?

Thank you Richard.

These coatings are accredited detailer only products, although you can purchase the wonderful SC15 coatings which are designed for enthusiast use.

Sorry I don't get this? The coating contains diamonds that make the light bounce in different directions so I understand this, but if diamonds are the hardest substance known to man...surely this would scratch the paint? If they're big enough to refract the light then surely they are big enough to mar the paint? Not trying to be awkward but it sounds more like marketing science fiction!
By the way can't fault the car our the finish!

Lovely car. Let's hope it wasn't the same one totalled on the M40 yesterday!

We went through this the other day with someone of the same vein regarding how the diamonds work.

The diamonds are milled to 3-4n in size, as it states, this would make the coating no different to apply than any other normal ceramic coating that contains high content silica, silicon etc etc everyone classes this a different term, so application doesn't create any issues, none that as stated in any ceramic would cause, its once the coatings dry that the diamonds come into play, for example take a ceramic coating, now if the particles in these were actually in glass form they would scratch but as they are in a liquid form they dont, its only when the coating is cured that it creates a glass layer, the diamond coating works in exactly the same way except that once it is cured the the light being transferred back also has the light refraction of diamonds to navigate other than just a glass layer.

Hope this helps.

Great finish by the way Rob.

Thank you for your comments, can I ask what is your take on traditional Silica/Quartz content coatings? Based upon your theory above, sand would have the same effect surely?

Wrongly or rightly I assumed the silica was in a solvent to keep it in a liquid state until they cured/solvent evaporates and then crystalising to make the hard glass protective layer. Diamonds though I'm not sure can be made into liquid? Also thinking about it diamonds that are not polished, aren't particularly reflective either. I appreciate that as you aren't the chemist that created the product you may not be able to answer the questions.

Please note I'm not knocking the product, and the results do look fantastic, but more that I'm just curious!
