Ceramic Paint Protection Packages

Here at Newcastle Auto Protection, we want our customers to be completely satisfied with their ceramic paint protection. That begins with talking to you about your requirements for a ceramic coating, what is important to you and answering any questions you have with 100% honesty. You can rely on the following when dealing with us:

10 Years Experience: With ten years in the industry, you can rest assured that your car is in excellent hands.

Professional Advice: We provide honest, no-bull, helpful advice. We aren’t trying to “trick” you into anything, we want you to get the best results possible – we like happy customers!

Single Step Paint Correction INCLUDED: No need to “add on” the cost of correction. We ensure your vehicle is ready for the coating, achieving the glossiest result possible.

Great Range of Ceramic Coatings: People are different, the way they use their cars are different, so why would the same coating suit all customers? For example, we have a unique, highly convenient car coating, GYEON Q2 Flash, that can be applied the same day the car is dropped off and picked up!

Pro-Only Ceramic Protection: These coatings cannot be purchased or applied by just anyone; we completed thorough accreditation processes to become certified applicators of both GYEON and Opti-Coat ceramic coatings. And we are the only certified applicators of these brands in the Newcastle region.

Entry-Level Coating Package

GYEON Q² CanCoat Pro Ceramic Car Coating
CanCoat Pro offers great, affordable ceramic protection with prices starting from just $449. This price includes a full exterior and single step paint correction, making it very hard not to consider this package if you are after a good detail and machine polish.

While this package can be applied to a new car, our other two package levels are better suited as they come with more durable protection backed with warranties. However, this entry level package is the perfect choice for cars that are 5 years+ in age and requiring a refresh and solid protection.

Mid-Level Coating Package

Mid Level Coatings - Opti-Coat Pro and GYEON Q² Flash
Our mid level protection packages are our most popular as they offer great protection, gloss and easy maintenance all while being great value with prices starting from $799 and including warranties. The coating choices offered in this level are Opti-Coat Pro and Gyeon Q² Flash.

Both coatings are single layer products and both offer great gloss and protection for the longer term. GYEON Q² Flash has the ability to be a same day install and comes with up to 10 year warranty (with services every 2 years). Opti-Coat Pro will need to be kept overnight in our high security workshop for longer curing and comes with a 5 year warranty, no servicing necessary.

If you need help deciding between these two coatings, please view our coating comparison table below or call us for a no-obligation chat about what’s best for you and your vehicle.

Top-Level Coating Package

Top Ceramic Coatings - GYEON Q² Duraflex, Opti-Coat Pro+, GYEON Q² MOHS+
Our top level protection packages are not only the very best coatings we offer but also some of the best coatings in the world at this time. We can offer you the choice of Q² MOHS+ or Q² Duraflex from GYEON, or Opti-Coat Pro+ from Opti-Coat.

All 3 of these ceramic car coatings are dual layer installs and will need to be kept overnight in our high security workshop for curing. The GYEON Q² coatings share the same base layer but are distinguished by their different top coats. The top coat on Q² MOHS+ provides harder wearing protection, whereas the top coat with Q² Duraflex provides greater slickness. Both Duraflex and MOHS+ give customers the option of an infinite warranty. If you choose to go with Opti-Coat for your top level paint protection, your car will first receive a layer of Opti-Coat Pro then Pro+ is added on top to increase the hardness and durability of the protection while also adding more gloss and slickness. It comes with a 7 year warranty, no servicing or inspections necessary.

If you are after the best protection available then our top level packages are up to the task, backed by impressive warranties and priced from $1249. If you need help deciding between these three coatings, please view our coating comparison table below or call us for a no-obligation chat about what’s best for you and your vehicle.

Which Ceramic Coating is Best for Me?

We know that everyone has different priorities for their car paint protection so we have put all the coatings we offer to the test in each of the below categories. Check out the results and feel free to contact us if you need more guidance or check out our instant quote calculator to build your ceramic paint protection package.

>

Glossiest Coating

Best: GYEON Q² MOHS+
Runner Up: Opti-Coat Pro+
Also Good: GYEON Q² Duraflex

This is a very subjective area as different coatings will add different types of gloss and each person can have a different preference. We have listed our favourite three in order.

GYEON Q2 MOHS+ wins for us because with its glass-like gloss it’s just like looking into a mirror. The additional Pro+ layer added over Opti-Coat Pro really ramps the gloss and slickness up to another level, making Opti-Coat Pro+ the runner up for this category. GYEON Q2 Duraflex comes in third for this category. Its silicone-based top coat certainly adds the “wet look” shine and is a favourite for many people.

>

Chemical Resistance

Best: Opti-Coat Pro+
Runner Up: Opti-Coat Pro
Also Good: GYEON Q² MOHS+

This area is a little less subjective as it isn’t based on preference but rather can be measured with appropriate testing. When it comes to the outright strongest protection the coatings from Opti-Coat do have the edge thanks to their Silicon Carbide (SiC) formulation. Opti-Coat Pro+ takes the title for Strongest Ceramic Paint Protection, followed by Opti-Coat Pro, and then GYEON Q² MOHS+.

>

Slickest Coating

Best: GYEON Q² Duraflex
Runner Up: Opti-Coat Pro+
Also Good: GYEON Q² Flash

The slickness we are measuring here is how much friction the coating reduces on top of the paintwork. GYEON Q² Duraflex wins hands down here. With its silicone based top coat, Q² Flexi, it’s even hard to rest a microfibre towel on your car as it just slides off. Opti-Coat Pro+ comes in second, followed by GYEON Q² Flash in third place.

>

Most Hydrophobic Coating

Best: GYEON Q² Duraflex
Runner Up: GYEON Q² Flash
Also Good: Opti-Coat Pro+

The word hydrophobic means water fearing and in this category we are looking at which coating offers the best beading action or water contact angle. GYEON QDuraflex wins again here. With a contact angle of 120 degrees it has some of the best hydrophobic action of any coating anywhere. GYEON Q2 Flash comes in second, offering great hydrophobic properties, while Opti-Coat Pro+ lands third place.

>

Sheeting

Best: Opti-Coat Pro
Runner Up: GYEON Q² MOHS+
Also Good: Opti-Coat Pro+

Water sheeting is another form of hydrophobic action. Rather than tight water beads water tends to flood a panel and fall off in a puddle. Opti-Coat Pro tends to sheet water more then beading it and takes first place in this category. GYEON Q² MOHS+ is a close second to Opti-Coat Pro in this category. With its great sheeting ability it makes the drying stage of the wash process that much easier. Opti-Coat Pro+ comes in third but definitely doesn’t sheet as well as the other two and could be described as the middle of the road in this category.

>

Fastest Application of Coating

Best: GYEON Q² Flash

GYEON Q2 Flash wins hands down in this section with driving the vehicle possible after only a 3 hour cure time. All the other coatings require 12 hours of curing before driving so come in equal second.

>

Easiest Coating to Maintain

Best: Opti-Coat

Both GYEON and Opti-Coat provide easy vehicle maintenance. By offering long term protection there is no need for constant waxing or reapplying protection once a year. However, when it comes to the least amount of maintenance required Opti-Coat Pro and Opti-Coat Pro+ have slightly lower maintenance due to not needing a spray sealant applied like GYEON WetCoat every 3 months to help maintain the coating.

Both GYEON and Opti-Coat coatings will require decontamination every so often as this will clog the coating and reduce the water behaviour and slickness.

>

Budget Coating Option

Best: GYEON Q² CanCoat Pro

GYEON Q² CanCoat Pro gets a mention here as it really is some great protection for a great price. It also can be used as a ceramic booster over any of the GYEON coatings after a few years of weathering to reset the coating back to day 1. For the price paid, CanCoat Pro beats every sealant and wax in terms of protection, chemical resistance and durability. It also adds great gloss and great hydrophobic action and slickness to the paint. For older cars there isn’t really a better option.

>

Warranty

No Loser

The warranties offered by both GYEON and Opti-Coat are good straightforward warranties with honesty in what’s covered and what to expect from their products. There isn’t a real winner here as what works for you and your car is going to be different to the next person.

One thing we do love about Opti-Coat and GYEON warranties is there is no need for an annual inspection just to keep your warranty valid. This is great as an annual inspection does little for the customer or the business as if you are looking after your car then you don’t need it checked and if you are not looking after it any damage sustained from neglect isn’t covered by any coating manufacturers warranty that I have seen.  If you miss an inspection your warranty is void. So even if you actually follow the correct maintenance plan from the manufacturer of that particular coating somehow it’s not guaranteed anymore because you missed the inspection.

Be sure to do your research on the warranty terms of any brand you are considering as sometimes the annual inspections are hidden away and not mentioned by the installer either. This means your 5, 7, 9, 12 or even 15 year warranty quickly becomes a 1 year warranty if you miss your first inspection.
