What is pts106 Glazing?
pts106 is the only paint protection system in the world that penetrates into and cures inside vehicle paint, thus protecting the paint against oxidation, rust, industrial fall-out, overspray, tree sap, etc, whilst maintaining a deep and durable shine.
The name pts106 is an abbreviation of the original laboratory code of this unique paint treatment system that was developed for NASA during the mid eighties during drag reduction testing on their training jets.
The benefits of pts106
Here are some random photos of vehicles receiving a pts106 treatment...
How does pts106 work?
pts106 is not just a coat on the surface of the paint, it becomes part of the structure of the paint.
Vehicle paint is microscopically porous (like a sponge) and pts106 chemicals are wax-free fluoro-Polymer resins that are applied with slow speed Cyclo polishing machines.
pts106 chemicals penetrate into vehicle paint, right down to the substrate.
It's a 3-phase process. Phase one is a preparation treatment to remove minor scratches, industrial fall-out, overspray and other imperfections from the vehicle's paint.
Phase two is a de-oxidizer that removes all impurities from the pores of the paint and it also acts as a catalyst (hardening agent) for the final coat.
The third phase a glaze coat that also penetrates and reacts with the catalyst to cure inside the paint.
Check for beading water when it rains or when you wash your car.
Beading water is a good thing. It means your paint is protected, but when water doesn't bead and forms a flat 'sheet' over the surface of the paint, you need paint protection.
Water Jet Test
This test shows how protected paint reacts to water vs unprotected paint.
We treated the righthand side of this car's bonnet with pts106 and sprayed it with a strong jet of water to demonstrate how pts106 seals and protects the paint.
You can see how the water forms a sheet and sticks to the untreated side on the left, whilst on the righthand side treated with pts106 the water forms beads and just runs off.
Free Cleaning Kit
We issue a free cleaning kit consisting of a carwash sponge and samples of our aftercare products with each pts106 treatment.
Warranty & Aftercare
We issue a One Year written warranty with each pts106 treatement, but reasonable aftercare is required, like washing your car at least once a week and following the correct process.
