Clear coat paint provides some added protection
The folks at PPG Industries, one of the largest paint suppliers for the auto industry, recently came up with a new clear coat paint they are calling "CeramiClear," which incorporates nanoparticles. These little pieces enable the new paint to offer what PPG calls "the highest level of scratch resistance among any of our commercial clear coats."
CeramiClear has been tested extensively in the laboratory, surviving hundreds of automated washes using a special abrasive cleaning solution as well as a dry abrasive test using very fine sandpaper. It has been tested in the field on more than 150 vehicles throughout the world over several years.
