Ceramic Sealants

The Gleaming Car Co. is the authorised detailing company for Kenolon Ceramic Shield across Lincolnshire and into East & North Yorkshire. A ceramic sealant is the perfect option for the ultimate long-term protection of your car and making the job of maintaining the finish a whole lot easier.

Ceramic sealants have been available for some time now and there is no doubt they have many advantages over traditional sealants solutions. They are longer lasting, provide a much harder protective layer over your paintwork and will resist far better any swirls and scratches which are just so easy to inflict, even during a poor wash process.

However, not all ceramic based sealants are the same, can be confusing, somewhat over marketed and hyped in what is already getting a crowded marketplace. With over 10 years of detailing experience and a large loyal customer base The Gleaming Car offers a solution that not only work in the real world for your daily drive or cherished example, but most importantly your car is prepared extensively before application – a process sadly lacking at many dealerships.


John - Kenolon Ceramic Sealants

Kenolon Ceramic Shield is my premium offering. Having undergone training and subsequent Kenolon Ceramic Shield Authorised Detailer status we are the only detailer in Lincolnshire authorised to apply this 9H product. You won’t find this product available to buy as it is only applied through a network of prestige detailers in the UK. Further more it’s manufactured in Europe ( Belgium) by CID Lines – established in 1988 – and has undergone over 6 years of development and testing before being available to professional authorised detailers.

Kenolon Ceramic Shield V1 is a premium coating on a SiO2 base. It is designed to meet the highest requirements in the professional detailing world. Due to its unique composition it will make the paintwork more scratch resistant and much easier to maintain. It is extremely resistant to all kinds of weather and many chemicals. Where traditional waxes and sealants are relatively easily affected by strong alkaline cleaners and mechanical friction, Kenolon Ceramic Shield V1 maintains optimal presence for months. It will harden up the paint to a maximum of 9 H. The complex and hard structure ensures that potential scratches and sweeps on the bodywork reduce. The hydrophobic effect (how water disperses) off the paintwork is amazing. This coating can easily give 3 years of protection.

The coating requires a maximum of 12 hours to cure, so after application it is recommended the vehicle is left in the garage overnight before use.
