Chemicals such as Lead, copper, Zinc, phosphates, all of which spray up onto the vehicle behind. Over time these chemicals will begin to bind to the clear coat protecting your vehicles beautiful paintwork if left untreated.

What is Toughseal ?
A 2-part process that gives all paintwork a diamond-hard shine and offers protection from most harmful elements including ultra violet rays, fading, acid rain, peeling, frost, tree sap, insect acid, bird droppings, oxidation (chalking), petrol and diesel fumes and the protective effects of Toughseal are actually enhanced by the sun. The high gloss Toughseal finish simply washes back time and time again.
HOW DOES TOUGHSEAL WORK?
When paint cures, entrapped solvents evaporate from the base layer up through the paint. When this occurs sediment is left in the paint’s pores. All painted surfaces are exposed to a certain amount of sulphuric and nitric acids from the atmosphere. These cling to the paint in the forms of oxides. Toughseal’s scientifically developed Pre-Treatment Step 1 enters the pores of the painted surface and effectively removes all foreign impurities. This now allows Toughseal’s Acrylic plus P.T.F.E. Sealant Step 2 to bond chemically to the pores of the paintwork to seal and protect the now highly polished surface. As the treated surface cures, the P.T.F.E molecules elongate, interlocking with each other, resulting in tough bonded protective coating to the paint.
HOW SOON AFTER PURCHASING A NEW CAR SHOULD I APPLY TOUGHSEAL?
It is preferable to apply Toughseal as soon as possible after purchasing your vehicle. The better the painted surface, the better the results Toughseal will provide. Your car is a very valuable asset, you want to preserve the value of your motor vehicle.
