ceramic coating will protect your car

A high quality professional grade ceramic coating will protect your vehicle from road grime, fading from the harsh Australian sun, rusting and more, whilst making it a breeze to clean and maintain that new car shine. If your vehicle is older and the paint is looking a little tired, don’t worry, our paint correction service will restore that paint work for you before locking that shine in with a ceramic coating.

why choose a buff & beyond

Choosing the right ceramic coating to protect your car is important, but more importantly is the process of application. 

For example, 

Purchasing a high quality exterior wall paint to paint a house with does not guarantee the paint will last when exposed to the environment. The key to ensure the paint bonds and stands up to the environment is the preparation of the wall before the paint is applied (by means of cleaning, priming, painting technique and curing).

Likewise, the importance of the vehicles surface preparation for the ceramic coating cannot be understated, and is the key factor that ensures your car’s ceramic coating will perform and last. This preparation stage is most often overlooked as it is labour intensive, time consuming and requires much patience. Fouad at A Buff & Beyond undertakes a painstaking and meticulous preparation process to ensure the ceramic coating on your car has bonded correctly and is cured with shortwave infrared lights before handover.

Steps to ensure ceramic coating durability

1

Decontamination

Decontamination is the process of removing embedded iron, tar and other environmental fallout from the vehicles paintwork that its exposed to once it leaves the factory
2

Paint correction

New and used cars always require a degree of paint correction to remove imperfections caused by the many hands handling the vehicle before being sold as new
3

Modesta ceramic coating

Only after Step 1 and Step 2 have been completed thoroughly, the ceramic coating paint protection is ready to be installed ensuring maximum bonding and durability

ceramic coating options for your car

10 Year Ceramic Coating Paint Protection

Layer 1 - Modesta P01A Glass Coating Primer

Modesta P-01A is a primer for Modesta's glass coatings. It is a special resin similar to one of the components of automotive paints, that forms an up to 10μm thick layer. Its thick bi-layered membrane works together with the glass coatings to produce a deep gloss, shine and reflections from the paint surface.

It acts in a similar manner as a crosslinker, that promotes the coatings adherence to the paint itself, thus prolonging the durability and protection effects. Once the Glass Coating Primer has bonded and is cured, the following Modesta Glass Coating can be installed.

Layer 2 - modesta bc-04/05 Advanced water repellant ceramic glass coating

The Modesta Flagship. Based on a three-dimensional molecular frame it forms a highly durable clear glass coat on the paint and produces an unique "candy-like" gloss.

Other qualities include strong water-repelling effects, durability of up to 10 years and outstanding protection against all kinds of contamination. The inorganic nature of the coating makes it fully resistant to oxidation. The hard physical barrier it creates also prevents paint from coming into contact with air and acts as a anti-scratch protectant.

Layer 3 - Modesta M1 Shot

Modesta M1Shot completes the ceramic coating paint protection providing a top layer protective sealant.

3+ Year Ceramic Coating Paint Protection

It acts in a similar manner as a crosslinker, that promotes the coatings adherence to the paint itself, thus prolonging the durability and protection effects. Once the Glass Coating Primer has bonded and is cured, the following Modesta Glass Coating can be installed.

Layer 2 - Modesta BC-08 Neosillica Matrix Coating

Modesta BC-08 is an easy coating for quick application on daily driven vehicles. Traces of zirconium create great shine and luster on the paint while it’s three dimensional matrix ensures excellent water repellency and self cleaning.

The coating’s thick layer acts as a self sacrificing barrier to protect the finish of the vehicle from scratches and marring as well as adverse environmental effects.

Modesta BC-08 Neosilica Matrix Coating is a fantastic coating that competes with the premium coating offerings from many other brands. BC-08 is a great way to protect your daily driven vehicle from environmental hazards while also easing maintenance. Perfect for a vehicle that is only going to be leased for a few years an older vehicle that may already be a little less than perfect. With Modesta BC-08 you can get into a high quality paint coating without the premium price tag.

Layer 3 - Modesta M1 Shot

Modesta M1Shot completes the ceramic coating paint protection providing a top layer protective sealant.

Wheel protection

Modesta BC-06 Ceramic glass wheel coating

Wheel protection - Modesta BC-06 Heat resistant hard glass coating

Stain resistance and ease of cleaning are the most prominent characteristics of the BC-06 glass coating, thanks to the hardness of the coating film. This thin silica film made from perhydropolysilazane protects the car body and wheels from dust in raindrops that may penetrate soft paints or other painted surfaces and can be removed only with great effort. Thanks to the BC-06 protection, washing is required less frequently. BC-06 undergoes a chemical reaction when it comes in contact with a painted surface, creating a hard glass coating. It has a tightly packed molecular structure that creates a solid, long lasting surface. BC-06 is heatproof up to 1,300 °C - enough to protect wheels from burning-hot brake dust.

Exterior Glass protection

Modesta EGC ceramic glass coating

Exterior glass protection - Modesta EGC coating

A carefully formulated blend of silica resins, that adds a microscopic hydrophobic layer on the surface of exterior glass of motor vehicles, which improves the visibility while driving through rain and helps in keeping the windscreen clean by inhibiting adhesion of insects, grime and other dirt to the glass. The hydrophobic characteristics of the coating also aid in removal of ice and snow in winter weather. The kit further contains 15g of highest grade instant cerium oxide powder, prepared with suspension agents and emulsifiers, which is used as an abrasive deep cleaning agent before application of the coating itself.

Interior Leather Protection

Modesta LPS leather coating

Interior Leather protection - Modesta LPS Coating

The Modesta Leather Protection System delivers exceptional protection to all leather and leather-like surfaces in interiors of motor vehicles. This two component system is the only in the market that protects the precious sur-faces from both - penetration by liquids and dirt as well as abrasion. The Base Protection greatly limits or outright stops many common liquids from penetrating into the surface, reduces color transfer and makes cleaning of the surface easier with less chemicals. This ensures longer durability of the surfaces and thus preserves the value of the vehicle. The Slider Abrasion Protection is a unique top coat designed specifically for Modesta’s Leather Protection System. It reduces surface friction on exposed parts of interiors (for example seat bolsters). Due to the reduced surface friction the exposed parts will last longer and greatly reduce signs of the usual wear and tear.

Exterior Plastic Coating

Interior Leather protection - Modesta EPC

MODESTA EPC (Exterior Plastic Coating) The Modesta Exterior Plastic Coating is a unique blend of ingredients restoring uncoated exterior plastic parts of automobiles and other vehicles, by adding saturation and color depth. On weathered plastic parts with faded color, it will restore the original look and feel of the surface. At the same time, it will add protection against UV radiation and oxidation, thus prolonging the longevity of the material. The EPC is a state-of-the-art solution to protect the factory new plastic parts of vehicles as well, as it will not significantly modify the looks and feel of the plastic, while providing long term protection to them.

Why choose A Modesta ceramic coating

Unfortunately there is a lot of misinformation about ceramic and graphene coating paint protection. There are countless products in the market promising amazing performance, durability and life-time warranties. but the differing coating preparation methods, turn-around times and products used make it difficult to compare like-for-like accurately.  

Over the years Fouad has tried and tested many ‘professional’ grade ceramic and graphene coatings in regards to durability and real-world performance claims. He is an accredited ceramic coating installer for GTechniq, Artdeshine, Ethos and more. But one ceramic glass coating stands in a league of its own – Modesta.

From around the world, Fouad joins only a handful of quality detailers which have been hand-picked by Modesta and trained to be an accredited installer of a paint protection system unlike any other on the market.

Modesta ceramic coating benefits

Paint without protection

Unprotected surface Contaminations deposit into the paint and cause damages by friction, oxidation and other means.
Car paint without ceramic coating paint protection_2

Bare and unprotected paint of your vehicle is exposed to intense elements of the environment which allows contaminates to deposit themselves directly onto your sensitive clear coat finish. The most common of these negative environmental elements are tar and asphalt from the roads, corrosion and oxidation caused by road salt in winter, industrial fallout, organic compounds and extremely hot brake dust particles that burn into the paint mainly around wheels.

Insects, although small, also pose a considerable risk to the finish of a vehicle as their bodies contain acids and organic compounds that can cause rapid deterioration of automotive paint.

Without any protection, scratches and other wear induced mechanical damage is caused directly on the clear coat itself. This category of damage affects every vehicle. Even if driven only occasionally and under favourable weather conditions, there will always be an abrasive element while driving, caused at least by the dust and dirt particles on the roads. Insects hit by the car are also a potent organic oxidizer that can eat through paint and cause severe damage if not handled by a professional. Higher speeds of course promote these kind of adverse elements.

Modesta paint protection

Protected surface Contaminations can’t deposit into the paint and cause damages.
Car paint with ceramic coating paint protection

Products in the Modesta range create a hard, glass-like layer on the clear coat of your vehicle. This thick layer is composed of high grade silicium produced by a special chemical reaction at the time of the application. It acts as an incredible barrier, protecting the paint from all adverse affects of the environment.

No matter how hard the clear coat layer on your vehicle may be - Modesta adds hardness to it and the layer created will always be harder than the finish of your vehicle itself. This creates a long lasting resistance against common mechanical wear when properly cared for. Thanks to the layer thickness Modesta produces on the paint, it provides an owner with a “wear and tear” layer that performs far beyond what any wax or sealant can. Thus, the paint of your vehicle has the best protection possible and will retain it’s value longer.

A significant part of the protection our products deliver is the result of their outstanding self-cleaning and water behaviour properties. With Modesta the vehicle will stay clean for longer and will be considerably easier to wash when needed. Our products deliver protection lasting up to 10 years with proper maintenance.

I normally do not like to review any businesses but I think I need to for this one, because I did owe previous reviews that made me make decision to contact Fouad. Even tho I am living 150kms from his business workshop. All car lovers if you are thinking of minor paint corrections and paint coating. You would be thinking which types would suit you best, price would come into consideration as well. And for sure we all would love to get the best product and services with the cheapest price. I am the same. The price for Ceramic or Graphene coating is surely much higher than normal waxing. But im thinking of timing to do the coating and the durability of these products per days. Ceramic/Graphene is clearly a better choice for me. Why doing it with the buff and beyond? Please ask Fouad about products he uses and how he would treat your car and compare with other quotes you have before making your decision. It’s like everything. Quality and service versus price. If you love your car and take pride of it. No better place to do car coating than with him. From the start. Quoting was quick it came with explanation of each types of product. Made it easy to choose what suited you most. Scheduling was easy, actually booking my car into service with the Porsche took longer. So all work out well. His workshop is super clean and professional . Everything was delivered on time as promised no delay. The result is amazing. Like I did a new paint on my car. And also coating on windscreen was a cherry on the cake. No more dirty water marks. Communicate with Fouad was easy and professional. Every questions were answered with patient and willingness to make you understand. He is a gentleman absolute pleasure to deal with. Hope my review would help anyone who is thinking of doing coating and thank you Fouad for your amazing job 🙏

A Buff & Beyond done an amazing job on my 24 year old black Toyota Starlet GT Turbo this week. The car had a dodgy respray done at some point in its life and the paint work was far from perfect. To add to this, the roof was very badly sun damaged, with white blotches all over it. I brought the car to Fouad for an initial consultation and after taking some paint thickness measurements, he was confident that he could get the roof back to black and tidy up the majority of the rest of the body. We agreed that the silver package was the way forward for this car. I could not be happier with the outcome! The roof is as close to perfect as could be achieved, as are all of the other panels given the age of the car & the previous botched paint job. He was so careful around some of the existing paint defects to ensure no further damage occurred. Fouad takes great pride in his work and the proof is undoubtedly in the outcome! Highly recommend the work that this company do & I will certainly be back with other vehicles. Thanks Fouad & team.

It's very hard to find honest people in this business. I’m so happy found him! Fouad has shown nothing but professionalism and honesty to me with my car. He told me what and what was not recommended for my car. I have recommended him to friends who have also come back with nothing but positive comments about his work. Don't fall for the dealership paint protection package, let Fouad show you what REAL paint protection is!

Dealing with Fouad was a pleasure. He provided great insights into the process and the products used as well as providing extremely helpful suggestions regarding maintenance in order to keep the car looking its best. His attention to detail and quality workmanship is exemplary and I would have no hesitation in recommending A Buff & Beyond.

A Buff & Beyond is the place to take you car in no matter of the size, to get it professionally coated it at the most efficient time. I have taken my Ford Ranger in for a Bronze pack to get it coated as the car was completely new. The car was already nice and shiny but seeing it after it has been coated, it has completely transferred the look, where the colour has started to pop more and it also became very smooth and even more shiny. Fouad knows what he is doing and you can trust him with your car. Fouad has an exceptional customer service where he would point out any defects on the paint and explain to you what exactly needs to be done to have it treated well. Fouad did a really good job with my car and I couldn’t be happier with the results - definitely recommend A Buff & Beyond!!!

Fouad did a stage one paint correction and applied a ceramic coating to my BMW E90 M3. The car was picked up and returned to me looking amazing, I also received an update call half way through the process updating me on progress. The end result is a glossy and smooth looking car paint, coated and protected for the next couple of years. A huge thank you to Fouad for the excellent work, I highly recommend his services to anyone that wants their car to shine.

Words can’t describe how happy I was with the Service provided by Fouad and the Quality and finish of the product used. I am an old school spray painter by trade and have never liked any products added over the paint to my cars. When I bought my last Audi I was convinced by Audi that I needed a Ceramic coating and in the first 2 weeks it was apparent that it was a total waste of 2k. I just had my Pride and joy Ford Ranger resprayed and didn’t want it coated but after hours of discussion on all the pros by Fouad I agreed to have it done. I can now say that the ceramic coating applied to my car by B&B after 7 weeks is absolutely amazing. In the 2nd week I parked under a tree that gave out a mist of tree sap all over the bonnet and the side of the car. I was so stressed and upset that I walked away. The next day it rained so again left it alone. When it finally cleared up to my surprise the tree sap had all washed off. I can confirm 100% that from now on every car I own will have this product applied by who I now call Car Dr Fouad. The Audi is booked in to strip the old coating applied by Audi and have a new coat applied by B&B.
