Nice Now, Harsh Later

This past Thursday marks the first day of autumn. For the next few months, we’ll be able to enjoy cool nights with the windows down. Winter, however, is just around the corner. Starting in November, the temperature will start dropping with snow and freezing rain following soon after.

At Capitol Shine, we’ve seen the paint of too many cars damaged as a result of not enough protection. Luckily, we specialize in not only fixing this damage (see our article on paint correction here), but also in providing a protective solution for your paint moving forward.

What are Capitol Shine’s Protective Coatings?

Advances in auto detailing has led to protective coatings. Our paint protection products are applied on top of that factory clear coat to provide greater protection for longer and also to help preserve the color. We offer two kinds of protection: coatings and film.

Ceramic Pro

Ceramic Pro is not a wax or sealant, but a nano ceramic coating that bonds with the paint and is only removed by abrasion such as machine polishing. This coating also never needs to be waxed and is:
  • Scratch resistant
  • UV resistant
  • Anti-corrosive
  • Self cleaning
  • Provides extreme gloss
  • Contains hydrophobic properties

This product is available for the body, wheels, windshield and interior. We offer Ceramic Pro in a 2 year, 5 year and Lifetime warranty. Learn more about Ceramic Pro and the different packages we offer here.

Opti-Coat Pro

Opti-Coat Pro is an American made protective coating. This is a popular option for those looking for an alternative to Ceramic Pro and still provides great protection against UV rays, marring, oxidation and more. This product is available in 5 and 7 year warranties. Learn more about Opti-Coat Pro here.

Paint Protection Film

We offer paint protection film for vehicles. Why would one choose film over a protective coating? Actually, the majority of our customers who receive film also have a protective coating applied on top of the film for even greater protection. The film we use actually increases the thickness of vehicle’s body, which results in excellent protection against rock chips – the thicker the layer, the harder it is to penetrate the paint.

Another reason our customers choose to wrap their vehicle in film is because of the variety of colors offered. Imagine changing your vehicle’s color while preserving the original paint underneath. The film can be removed at a later time and return the vehicle to its factory color. We offer different packages of film wrapping for different areas of your vehicle. Find our packages on paint protection film here.

Beyond Your Vehicle

Our protective coatings are so good, their uses extend beyond just cars. They help protect boats from wear and tear from salt water, alkalis, acids, corrosion and more. We also use protective coatings for commercial properties in areas like elevator interiors and lobbies to help prevent scratches and marks.

We have entered a new age in the way we detail and protect vehicles. If you would like to know more about our line of protective coatings, detailing or paint correction services, please feel free to send us a message with any questions or comments.
