So many car coating companies tout the “multi-layer” strategy to effective car coating. On the surface, this sounds like a good idea. But, a deeper look into the multi-layer concept a host of problems stare back at you. So many questions come to mind:
- Why are so many layers required? (Some have more than 7)
- Why so many hardness layers available? Why not put on the best and forget the other hardness?
- Why charge so much for each layer? To put on another layer is easy and shouldn’t be hundreds of ringgit or dollars? Hardly any labor or materials required.
We have a pretty good idea why so many car coating companies offer and recommend multi-layers. First, they can charge the unsuspecting customer more by offering extra layers. And since they don’t have concentrated SiO2 (Silica), their coatings are weak and need extra layers to achieve a good result. Sierra Glow spends extra money and time to offer our customers SiO2 that is almost 100% pure (98.5%). While the heating technique to achieve this is expensive and time consuming, we can achieve the best shine and protection with our coating because of this one fact.
