Here are some “competitor coating” companies that are in the market and understanding what they offer vs. Modesta. Mile High Image Detailing has researched for years and tested products prior to picking modesta. It took many years before we were authorirized as a installer and happy to be a part of the North American Modesta Team!
Ceramic Pro – with over 5000 installers all over the world this company is known for there advertisements and affordable coatings. “ the McDonalds” of the coating industry.
The more installers the Better! That’s not always the case, training and accountability is reduced since the qualifications are much easier to become an Ceramic Pro installer. Ceramic Pro Offers different tiers and Layers, more layers means more protection? No.
If you have a quality product why do you need so many layers to protect a vehicle for years to come?
Is 5 layers enough?
Modesta offers one Layer of protection that can protect your vehicle for 10 years. You Do Not need 3-5 layer of coating to protect your vehicle. The quality of your ceramic coating, thickness, clarity all is a huge factor of how your vehicle will look in the end.
If a company offers anything more than 2 layers of coating it’s a waste of time and money.
If you apply 4 layers for example on the 1st application 80% of the coating sticks, then you remove 20% leveling it out.
2nd layer 40% of the coating bonds to the other layer then 60% of the ceramic coating wipes off.
Layer 3, only 20% sticks to itself, layer 4 only 10% ……
The coating does not bond well to itself, so in the end you are wasting more product and time and Money. Not receiving any more protection or gloss.
Ceramic Coating Warranty
Ceramic Pro and any other warranty specifies that your warranty is void if you track your vehicle, not properly wash the car, if you do not come in for your annual maintenance, if you sell your vehicle the warranty does not transfer.. Go on and on.
If a Product is a high-quality product and the installer has been properly trained. The Ceramic coating will not fail! Modesta coatings can last even longer than they have been sold for, that’s where the installer needs to educate you on how to maintain the coating over the years.
A warranty is only as good as the installer applying it and the installer is only as good as the product itself. Meaning, if the product is too good to be true it is, if its too affordable and a bargain where are you loosing quality trading for a cheaper product.
We have seen this product fail and we do not offer this product.
Gtechniq is a great secondary coating for daily drivers.
Gtechniq Heat resistance 250 C
Modesta Heat resistance 900 C
This coating is one of the coating we offer for a more affordable ceramic coating without compromising durability. We left a CSL bottle open of Gtechniq for 6 months and saw that the coating turned Milky and took over 60 days to harden vs. Modesta hardens in Hours not day or months.
Remember even if a coating has hardened do not test the limitations such as scratch or throw gas on the vehicle. You want the ceramic coating to last and this does effect the durability over time.
Gtechniq does not offer the same properties that modesta offers such as more depth and increasing the pearlescence of the paint. Modesta Bc-08 is our introductory coating and that offers higher water beading properties, thicker membrane and higher gloss concentrations than any of the competitors.
Gtechniq is a good coating aswell, it has high gloss concentration but it does not compete to modesta.
Gyeon– companies offers a product that your able to purchase yourself online how exclusive is that coating? There are not many Professional only coatings but Modesta is one of the few! Ceramic Coatings like Gyeon are not Professional Coatings.
Professional coatings are not as easy to apply as a DIY video, but you receive a lot more quality and shine than any other DIY coatings offer.
Ceramic coating application very on Certain temperatures, humidity in the air depend on how the ceramic coating reacts to the bonding of the paint. Professional coatings need to be baked and cured over UV lighting to harden, many of these coating companies say “just wipe on and off” and your good to go! These coatings offer protection but re application will be most likely needed to be done in 1-2 years and the coating properties slowly diminish. The professional coatings are thicker and last longer, are harder to apply and have a 20-30% higher gloss factor.
Other Ceramic Coating Companies– there are many other companies offering ceramic coatings, many companies all over the internet re-brand a generic coating to their brand name. Some of these companies mentioned do this as well. Companies subcontract a Blending Company to mix a ceramic coating for them. Then the Blending company sells that same coating to 10+ other brands offering a mediocre coating into the market. This coating costs the supplier and reseller pennies. Well, how good can this coating be? Well not that good.
This is why they are able to offer cheaper prices.
