Surface Protectant Coating System

Our unique and simple two-step process is easy to apply and maintain. A market leading system it contains ultra-small, durable particles that penetrate the ‘pores’ of a treated surface with a very thin, robust and durable surface sealing film, flattening the morphology and creating an incredibly smooth finish at the molecular level.
