Tips for Protecting Your Car from Rock Chips

There’s no worse feeling than when you’re on the highway and you watch a rock fly up from under the car in front of you, hit your bumper, scratch over your hood, and fly overhead. We’ve all been there, and the team at Q is sick of it. We live in New England, and the weather is only going to get worse for the rest of the year, so how do we protect against the regular rock chips and road debris we will face? We have two solutions:

1) Nano-ceramic coating

We’re not talking about just any ceramic coating either. Q Complex was created after the other ceramic coatings just didn’t cut it. With automotive manufacturers using only water-based clear coats, we were motivated to find a better solution. Our nano-ceramic coating uses advanced silane chemistry that “locks” reactive sites on the surface of the SiO2 coating to achieve optimum gloss and scratch resistance. Coatings are a more affordable solution that can last anywhere from 1-5 years depending on the coating level.

2) Clear bra

Clear bras are another seamless paint protection that is installed on your exterior. You can create customized packages, it’s easy to maintain, and it has a self-healing layer against minor swirls and scratches. Clear bras that are installed well are not distinguishable from other areas of your car, don’t cause unwanted texture, and do not bubble. Typically, clear bras last anywhere from 4-7 years.

It’s time to invest in car customization and protection for the MA roads. Nano-ceramic coatings and clear bras are the ideal way to safeguard against those surface level scratches, maintain the integrity of the original paint, and prevent the need for significant touch-ups and repairs in the future. The future in paint protection is with businesses like Q.
