Nanovere, a nanotechnology specialized company, developed a new set of coatings for car paints, the Zyvere Nanocoatings. These clear coatings are able to protect car paints against scratches from bugs, flying rocks, car keys, or - in our case - even against 6H pencils!
Zyvere Nanocoatings claims to outperform all automotive OEM coatings, automotive aftermarket coatings and aerospace coating competitors with the list below:
-53% higher scratch resistance
- 60% improved clean ability
- 476% higher chemical resistance
- 100% gloss retention over 5+ years
Besides its extreme scratch resistance the coating also keeps your car shining for at least five years... so, now you know how to impress your neighbors at the next car wash Saturday!
