1. Are these coatings really permanent?
Yes, System X® Ceramic Coatings should be thought of as adding another clear coat to the paint's surface. This new clear coat is glossier, chemical resistant, and harder than the original clear coat. System X® is a permanent coating in the same sense that the clear coat on your car is permanent. Eventually the clear coat will wear away over the years; its overall longevity depends on conditions, cleaning frequency, proper application, and maintenance.
2. What is the advantage of System X over polyurethane coatings that already provide protection, significant gloss, and color retention?
System X® provides advanced gloss and protection over clear coats. The ceramic bonded coating helps contaminants slide off easily, which gives them less time to eat into the surface.
An added plus is the ease of cleaning your vehicle. An easy way to think of it would be that System X® is the equivalent of another, harder, glossier, self-cleaning clear coat layer that only needs to be applied once over the period of its long term warranty. Waxes and Polyurethane coatings need to be applied far more often.
3. Do I need a special car-wash soap after System X is applied?
No special washing, soap, or shampoo is required. Using an automated car wash is fine as well - touch-less automated car washes are preferred as cloth car washes often have debris and stone chips left in the brushes/cloth from infrequent maintenance.
4. How often should I wash my System X coated vehicle?
You should wash your vehicle every two weeks to one month depending on how much it driven and where its parked. If its garage kept and only driven a few times a week, once a month is fine. If its driven every day, wash it bi-weekly. Realistickly, washing ruitines are the same whether you have a coating or not.
5. Are we an accredited authorized System X installer?
Yes, we are! NitPickin is recognized as a professional installer of System X products and is 100% authorized and accredited. Feel free to contact System X about their relationship with NitPickin.
6. How long before I can wash my vehicle?
It is recommended that you do not wash your vehicle for 7 days after System X has been applied.
7. Where can I find information about the warranty?
When professionally applied by an authorized installer, registered System X installations carry up to a Lifetime warranty. Review specific limitations and responsibilities of the official warranty.
