Xpel & Gtechniq Protection for a new Porsche 718 Cayman S

1080 607 Exclusive Car Care

The owner of this stunning Porsche 718 Cayman S painted in Crayon Metallic wanted to give his new purchase the very best start to life and get it well protected from the elements so booked it in for our New Car Preparation & Protection Detail along with application of our self healing Paint Protection Film to some of the high impact areas of the car.

With the vehicle washed and decontaminated the paintwork was then inspected with different light sources which highlighted some buffer trails and light swirling. The paintwork was then given a single stage machine polish to fully remove these defects and leave a high gloss finish.

Paint Protection Film – Porsche 718 Cayman S

With the crayon paintwork now free of blemishes and swirls it was then time to apply some PPF (paint protection film) to some areas of the Porsche. The customer requested we protect the bonnet, bumper, front wings, side skirts, A-pillars, side mirrors and leading edge of roof with paint protection film to protect these vulnerable areas from stone chips and other minor abrasions.

All patterns are computer cut in house using a Graphtec FC8600-160 cutting plotter. This top of the line 64″ plotter cuts the design pattern out of the paint protection film roll, once all cutting is finished we then remove any unnecessary excess film leaving a precision computer cut pattern.

 

The paintwork was protected with Gtechniq CS Black.  This innovative sealant offers the latest in nanotechnology advances, providing an effective barrier against extremes of pH. The coating forms a dual layer of protection: the base layer has a hardness of around 7h to provide flexibility; the top layer has a hardness of 9h. The combination of tough over coat with flexible under-layer contributes to the reduction of swirl induced hazing. Once cured Crystal Serum is virtually impervious to harsh wash chemicals, industrial and environmental fallout.

After Crystal Serum had cured EXO V3 was applied on top (including the paint protection film). This top layer sealant adds an extra level of slickness whilst increasing the hydrophobic properties of the final finish.

The wheel faces were coated with Gtehniq C5 Wheel Armour and interior protected with L1 Leather Guard and I1 Smart Fabric.
