How CBX3 Molecular Polymer Sealant Can Protect Your Investment
I’m sure you’ve heard about having your car’s paint job “sealed”, but by the time you finish reading this article, I’ll leave no question in your mind that would cause you to hesitate having this done right away.
The clear coat of your vehicle’s paint, when viewed under a microscope, has an irregular surface. Some say that it is porous, but this is incorrect. It’s a bit more complicated. The irregularities are on the surface, and also throughout the thickness of the clear coat.
Water can absorb into the clear coat through the irregularities, and make its way down to the base of the layer. There are fillers in base coat paints that will absorb water into it, which will make the degradation even worse.
When the sun shines on metal surfaces, it heats up fairly quickly. The heating up of the clear coat layer makes it more susceptible to water absorption through the irregularities. That’s when the process of oxidation starts.
Oxidation happens when heat and oxygen combine to which breaks down the molecular structure of the clear coat. It starts on the surface, creating a dull or chalky look. Then works its way through the base coat and down to the metal. The end result is rust.
Oxidation is why you see those cars with big cloudy dull spots that lead into peeling and chipping of entire areas. It happens the most on the top flat surfaces of vehicles. That’s where they get the most sun exposure, and where water sits for the longest period of time.
I have worked with chemists and formulators within the OEM paint manufacturing industry and the automotive industry during my time as an air pollution engineer for my state’s regulatory agency, in addition to collaborating with the EPA. I’ve seen a lot of research and advancement when it comes to making paint coatings more protective of the metal surfaces they are sprayed on. But they are still not 100% waterproof when exposed to the harsh outdoor environment over a long period of time.
The key to slowing down water absorption is to seal the surface with a molecular polymer sealant that is “hydrophobic”. That means water droplets are “scared” of sticking to it, rather than sticking to the surface where it can eventually be absorbed, it beads up and rolls off of the vehicle. There have been major advancements in the development of molecular polymer sealants for automotive use in the past decade.
You can guard against the destructive effects of oxidation by treating the surface with a polymer sealant that doesn’t allow the water to hang around long enough to start eating away the layers. And the side benefit is that your car will stay cleaner longer, because dirt and mud from rain and road splatter can’t stick to the surface as well. You’ll notice this every time it rains!
But the protection against water and oxidative damage isn’t all you get with my MPS treatment. You also get a brilliant shine, because this special formulation contains silicones and other imported wax ingredients that combine to create a brilliant, high-gloss finish!
CBX3 is a specially formulated product and application process that gives the ultimate protection in creating a hydrophobic barrier for your car, plus the aesthetic benefit of a show-room shine. You can’t go wrong with a process like this that is provided by a professionally-licensed auto body shop, and the treatment will last from 6 months to a year.
Pricing starts at $150 for the basic service, depending on the size and condition of your vehicle’s paint coating. But don’t hesitate to ask about scratch removal, headlight restoration, and synthetic polymer sealant window treatment too!
