We only offer the best coating on the market. Ceramic Pro.
Ceramic Pro coatings are a unique ceramic molecular compound formula (nano-ceramics), with new formulas always under testing to make them the most advanced protective coatings on the market. Over time, wax will break down and require more coatings (about every 3 months). Ceramic Pro is not a paint protection, wax or sealant that will wash away or break down over time. Scientifically speaking, it is a nano-ceramic coating that forms a permanent adhesion to the paint and can only be removed through abrasion – NO chemical can dissolve the coating The coating has a 100% resistance against the damaging containments and harsh chemicals that a car can be exposed to. Since chemicals does not do anything to the coating, the car will stay protected.
The shine from this product is not comparable to any other product on the market. It has to be seen in real life.
Before motorized cars, horse drawn carriages and coaches were built of wood. Slowly the buggies and wagons progressed to using iron and then steel fittings for the wheels and steering. Finally, expensive carriages were fitted with springs to improve passenger comfort. Early horseless carriages were also made from wood; even the main frame. Soon, the main chassis frame was formed from steel with cart springs supporting live axles. It was not long after that, that mass production saw pressed steel bodies coming off a production line by the thousands – and gone with that was the art of coach building, save in a very few specialist restoration and custom shops around the world. A very few cars are hand built with wooden bodies today, At TW Restoration & Collision we are proud to be able to say that woodworking skills are alive and kicking.
