Matrix - Coming 2nd March


Coming 2nd March
Up to 8 years durability

Keeps your car looking new for longer and requiring less maintenance; Matrix ceramic coatings add value to your investment.

Matrix fully bonds to the paintwork, wheels and glass for long term results. The coating will not melt or crack for up to 8 years, making your car look newer for longer.

The optically pure, glass like coating provides outstanding resistance to chemicals and contaminants ensuring your investment is fully protected.

If you want to become an accredited Matrix detailer contact your local Autosmart franchisee.

Sometimes it feels like we've been talking about it for that long!

Over the years we've developed a series of tests for all of our products that simulate real world conditions and allow us to run an accelerated program to give us the data we need to accurately predict the durability of a product. We wouldn't attach the number to it if we weren't confident it was achievable

Mmmm, now I like Autosmart and use a lot of their products but I do find the whole ceramic thing a bit smoke and mirrors. Not many people keep their cars for 8 years, would also like to see how people get on with a claim after 7.5 years

Any more info available? Can the enthusiast amateur buy this from an Autosmart franchisee or is it for certified pros only?

If the amateur, any instructions available for us to see how it should be applied?

Cheers

AFAIK you have to be accredited to use the 8 year coating but there are more user friendly products in the range
