CERAMIC PRO QUALITY & CERTIFICATION
Ceramic Pro and its manufacturer Nanoshine Ltd are changing the dynamics of the coating industry. The company has for years worked on industrial multifunctional protective coatings for all surfaces and strives to continuously improve their products. In 2010 Nanoshine Ltd introduced Ceramic Pro – a series of products for the automotive, air and marine markets suited for surfaces such as paint, glass, alloy, fabric, leather, plastic and rubber. What makes Ceramic Pro different is the cutting edge technology based on ceramic molecular compounds (nanoceramics). The formula is world patented and it has taken ten years of research and testing to bring the product to where it is today. All formulas include SiO2. All Ceramic Pro products have been tested by SGS, the world ‘s leading inspection, verification and certification entity. Ceramic Pro achieved the highest possible result in each test; no other automobile paint protection product to date has been officially tested. All products within the Ceramic Pro range have been tested and certified as non-toxic
THE NEW FACE OF COATING TECHNOLOGIES
Ceramic Pro is not a wax, sealant or a paint protection like offered by car dealerships and other paint protection companies. Ceramic Pro Paint Protection forms a permanent adhesion to the paint work giving it a superior shine that can only be removed through mechanical abrasion such as machine polishing, making it extremely durable. Ceramic Pro has been officially tested and certified by “SGS”, the world’s leading testing, verification and certification company. Ceramic Pro Paint Protection is a High Gloss Permanent Bond Nano-Ceramic Coating that can only be applied by our network of trained Approved Applicators and is backed up by a Lifetime Warranty*, compared to factory paint work it offers increased Swirl Mark Resistance, Chemical Resistance, UV & Thermal Resistance, Anti-Graffiti and is Super Hydrophobic. The super hydrophobic and anti-graffiti effect of the coating means any liquid that comes in contact with the surface will simply bead up and roll off along with any dirt and grime, keep your car cleaner for longer and easier to clean. The ceramic layer will give additional hardness to your paint work and provide the best protection from damaging environmental contaminants and harsh chemicals that would otherwise compromise the factory clear coat. Ceramic Pro is not a paint protection wax or sealant that will wash away or break down over time, it is a Nano-Ceramic Coating that forms a permanent adhesion to the paint work like an additional layer of clear coat and can only be removed through abrasion. Ceramic Pro is harder then factory clear coat meaning it will help reduce swirl marks and light scratches.

Once cured, the coating provides protection from extreme temperatures ranging from -50 to 2,200 Degrees Fahrenheit.
Oxidation & Corrosion Resistant
Ceramic Pro protects paint and metal from coming into contact with water and oxygen preventing oxidation and corrosion. The ASTM B117 Salt Spray Corrosion Test provides a controlled corrosive environment which has been utilized to produce relative corrosion resistance information for specimens of metals and coated metals exposed in a given test chamber. The chemical tests conducted by SGS and internally are: 5% salt spray for 350 hours with results of no visible damage, as well as 5% salt spray for 5000 hours with no visible damage (internal test).
The coating has 100% resistance against damaging contaminants and harsh chemicals. Once cured, the only way to remove the coating is through heavy abrasion. The chemicals tested and conducted by SGS include: JIS K5400 Alkali, Acids and Salt. This test method identifies how well the coating resists sodium carbonate, sulfuric acid and sodium chloride despite heavy exposure. Result: 5% Na2CO3 for 24 hours: No visible damage, 5% H2SO4 for 24 hours: No visible damage, and 5% NaCL for 96 hours: No visible damage.
Ceramic Pro has proven to be a perfect coating for surfaces that are exposed to expansion and deformation. The test conducted by the SGS is the Mandrel Bend Test (ASTM D522 test). This test is useful in evaluating the flexibility of coatings on substrates. Result: 0 mm of coating loss at 180° rotation.
In the coating industry a products hardness or ability to resist scratches is determined by the pencil test. In the Pencil test conducted by SGS (JIS K5400) a coated panel is placed on a firm horizontal surface. The pencil is held firmly against the film at a 45° angle (pointed away from the operator) and pushed away from the operator in a 0.256-inch strokes. On a scale ranging from 6B (softest) to 9H (hardest), Strong has been tested and classified above 9H. impact In the Impact resistance testing conducted by SGS (ASTM D2794 test) coatings attached to substrates are subjected to damaging impacts during the manufacture of articles and their use in service. This test method for impact resistance is useful in predicting the performance of organic coatings and their ability to resist cracking caused by impacts. Result: 80/80 inch pounds.
The test conducted by SGS is the ASTM D3359 Adhesion test. This test covers procedures for assessing the adhesion of coating films to metallic substrates by applying and removing pressure-sensitive tape over cuts made in the film. Result: 5B (No coating loss when using strongest tape).
The UV protection keeps paint, rubber and plastic from aging. The tests conducted by SGS; ASTM G154-06 and ASTM D2244 determine color changes on surfaces exposed to UV rays. Result: No color change
A surface level of hydrophobia is dependent on the water contact angle of the surface. The higher angle the less dirt or liquid will attach to the surface. Strong 2.0 has a contact angle of at least 110 degrees.
The coatings ability to conduct electricity in room temperature is extremely low. With higher temperatures the conductivity increases.
Ceramic Pro is a non-toxic product and the tests that have been conducted by SGS are: ASTM F963-08 (4,3,5) Heavy Metal Lead, Antimony, Arsenic, Barium, Cadmium, Chromium, Mercury, Selenium. Result: Not detected in all tested substances.
ECHA REACH test Ceramic Pro has been tested against 144 substances of very high concern (SVHC) screening. SVHC candidate list based on the publication by European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) on June 2013. Result: Not detected in all tested substances.
Ceramic Pro is VOC compliant at 5.2 g/liter.
