Paint Protection- the options

Are you looking for car paint protection in Perth? This over the years has been a very contentious subject, dividing the motoring public, you are able to read reviews across many forums about paint protection in Perth and for every one that thinks it’s great there is another that will disagree. In our opinion they are all right, it’s a must for some and a must not for others, so what right for you?

To decide this you must look firstly at yourself, not the car as you in our opinion are the difference between the yes and the no to paint protection, we say this as a paint protection is offering you a long term protective coat over areas such as paint, glass, wheels, leather and fabric but it is not the only way to protect, the other options have a much shorter protection span meaning that you need to look after these surfaces much more often than you would if you had a long term protection over them.

New or used vehicle is no matter all surface need some sort of protection if they are to last, a used car will need more work to bring it back to a quality condition.

Just like car detailing there are many levels of car paint protection in Perth and we will work with your to determine which is best for you, even if you are doing it yourself and not using Perth Detailing Centre our advice is free and unbiased.

Our general car detailing plans will offer you all year round protection but should you apply a long-term protection this can reduce the cost of your plan, as we will design a personalised plan that suits your protected investment.

As the years have gone by protective coatings have developed significantly to offer your vehicle the protection that was not available only a few years ago.

Perth Detailing Centre has continually moved with these long-term protections from the older PTFE and silicon coatings through to the more recent years where Nano technology and ceramic coatings have emerged through to the latest Gtechniq hard ceramic coatings that offer something that we can only describe as “special”.

Of course there are still the high quality traditional waxes such as Swissvax that will never age and will always offer a great protective coating with an insane gloss.

Here at Perth Detailing Centre we offer you the choice of what we have identified to be the best, we have chosen this through firstly quality then longevity and finally the cost, and although cost was the final impact on our choice each option is much cheaper than any dealership on comparative coatings.

Gtechniq Crystal Serum Protection System

This is the world’s premium coating, it is like no other that we have come across and the results are truly outstanding we have found nothing that can compare to it, it coats paint, glass and wheels.

Where many coatings will sit on the paint, glass protection creates a layer over it, and once cured offers a hard layer that assists in protection from all the elements nature can throw at it but it will also reduce the fine scratches caused by every day life and has up to 9 year warranty.

If you visit our workshop out team will be happy to show you what this coating looks like and its thickness, you will be impressed.

So if you want only the best then Gtechniq protection is one you should seriously consider, look up the independent reviews and see what others are saying.

Gtechniq ceramic coat can be applied to your vehicle in a single layer or topped with Gtechniq EXO leaving an extremely durable and high-gloss finish, which prevents pollutants from impacting your car’s paintwork.

Once treated with ceramic coat your paintwork is guaranteed for up to 9 years and you will never have to polish it again in that time. Some paint protection products require the use of an ‘enhancer’ to maintain both the gloss shine and the lifetime guarantee. Gtechniq Ceramic coat does not; all you need do to re-validate the guarantee is to have your vehicle inspected by the Perth Detailing Centre for the Light option, but no inspection is required on the Ultra option. In the unlikely event we find any problems with the coat, we will reapply the ceramic coat*.

Without Gtechniq ceramic coat paint protection your paintwork could be become dull and faded over time, when exposed to atmospheric pollutants and harsh car wash chemicals. The paintwork will progressively fade and hold dirt meaning cleaning and washing will become harder.


Protects all exterior paintwork and locks in showroom shine; making your vehicle more attractive to buyers when the time comes to resell it.

No need to polish your car. Ceramic coat helps repel dirt and grime therefore making  your car easier to clean.

The reduced build-up of dirt and grime leads to savings on the cost of washing and waxing. Ceramic coat will also help prevent paintwork fading over time.


Perth Detailing Centre respect not all clients want a long term protectant and this may be for many reasons, Swissvax fills this role more than adequately with the choice of  high volume carnauba waxes that offer mid term protection ranging from 6 – 24 months while offering an incredible depth of gloss.

Crystal Rock Wax

Special development for Paul Dalton in Great Britain, one of the most famous automobile detailers in the world

With 76% by wax volume of pure Brazilian ivory carnauba wax, the waxes have one of the highest carnauba content of any wax on the market. In effect, it coats a car’s paintwork in a smooth and glossy, yet tough and protective, water-repellent film – and even brings a shine to white and silver. A layer of ‘Paul Dalton’s Crystal Rock Wax’ can last up to 12 months and can be “topped up” with additional layers for even more protection. When exposed to water, ‘Paul Dalton’s Crystal Rock Wax’ swells and closes its pores. This leads to the beading and sheeting of water that is characteristic of a car that has been treated with this high content carnauba wax. The more layers are applied, the more waterproof it is. After three layers, one of Paul’s clients has been known to dry his car with a two mile drive… caring for your car doesn’t get any better.

Shield Wax

Swissvax Shield is a modern and innovative system for the ultimate protection of all types of paintwork – also under the harshest conditions. Shield is a special carnauba wax which was enriched with non-stick PTFE in order to create an ingenious protection shield for your paintwork. Thank to the proverbial “Teflon-pan-effect” dirt and insects barely can’t adhere at all to the as smooth as glass paintwork surface.

We strongly recommend the application of Swissvax Shield for your car paint protection in Perth. It is perfect for daily driven vehicles, winter vehicles, all vehicles that aren’t parked in a garage and that are cleaned in a car wash only.


Containing considerably more PTFE than Shield and 40% carnauba by volume, Endurance offers unparalleled durability and protection as well as imparting a deep, reflective gloss to your paintwork.

Colours are brightened and enhanced and flake pops out to greet the sun. Your paint will have a smooth, silky feel and thanks to the carefully-formulated recipe dirt and contamination will struggle to grip onto your car, like an egg in a non-stick frying pan, making regular washing much easier.
