Paintseal Direct FAQ

So what’s this Paintseal all about?

So, in laymans terms, If you were to look at your exterior paint surface , you would see that there are tiny peaks and troughs in the exterior surface. Over time toughened grime and impurities become embedded into to troughs, in most cases the only way to fully remove this grime is by using abrasive cleaning products. The use of these eventually wear down the exterior surface which leads to the appearance of dull and flat looking paintwork.

What does Paintseal Direct protective coatings do?

When Paintseal protective products are professionally applied (by one of our experts) to the exterior, it will fill in those troughs with a unique, tough, transparent layer which bonds to the exterior surface. It leaves a super smooth finish which will protect and lock in the original gloss. Making cleaning so much easier and will enhance the resale value of your caravan, motorhome, boat, etc.

So what is so special about our protective coatings?

We pride ourselves on only using the very best market leading protective coatings, we use both our Aviation Approved Liquid Glass Ceramic Coating, Gen-3, which is solvent resistant and our PTFE (Teflon) based exterior and interior protection.

Is it a waste of money?

Some people say that any wax/polish would have the same result, but our argument is that Paintseal Protective coatings are neither wax or polishers and unlike wax/polish, which need applying often and generally are gone within weeks, our protective coatings bond to the surface they’re applied to and will remain for many years without re-application being required in that time, also it makes cleaning easier and with no need for waxing/polishing, so wouldn’t you rather spend your time enjoying yourself, rather than waxing/polishing at the weekend? One further point is that the resale value is usually greater as a result of having our protective coatings on them, so saving you money in the long term.

Yes, Using scrub testing apparatus and solvents to establish coating durability and water shedding. Gen-3 Glasscoat out performed other brands by an average factor 10. Independent research and laboratory testing also conclusively established that Gen-3 Glasscoat will outperform all other known paint protection products.

Gen-3 Glasscoat adds a hardened, ceramic based layerwhitch bonds into and onto your units paint surface. Its ceramic coating protects the units paintwork, providing a long term resilient surface. The hydro-repellent quality enables dirt and grime to be easily removed. The versatility of the product means that it can also be used on the vehicles wheels to protect against high temperatures and to prevent the build up of break dust. Similarly, Gen-3 FCP interior protection will also be applied to your seating, providing a hard wearing barrier against stains and spills.

None whatsoever. No conservers, No waxing or polishing is required.

Gen-3 Glasscoat’s water repellent surface helps create a self cleaning like quality to the vehicle. Because dirt and grime cannot adhere to the Glasscoat layer easily, substantial debris is washed off by substantial rainfall.

Of course, thats the beauty of Gen-3 Glasscoat. Gen-3 Glasscoat is extremely resistant – making it safe whether you use a jet wash, car wash or hand wash your unit.

  • Dear Paintseal Please pass on my thanks to your technician Andrew Carter who came to my home to treat my vehicle with your Ceramic GEN-3 Glasscoat product. My wife and I are really pleased with the result and yesterday when he’d finished it looked good, but today with the sun shining on it, it looks FANTASTIC. I’m sure I will get remarks about the quality of finish and I shall certainly be recommending Paintseal. Thanks from a very happy customer

    Kind regards Mr A Ayres

  • Had ours done 3.5 years ago. Washed it last night, easy and still looks like new, Love the Gen-3 paintseal, wouldn’t be without it!!

  • Really impressed with paintseal which was done when the van was new over 10 years ago. The last “proper wash” was when we bought it 2 years ago. Since then just a rinse with luke warm water and leather down 3 or 4 times a year. never had any black streaks.


  • Paintseal Gen-3 every time!! Had it on our new 645 in december and that is the third van/time we’ve had it, Excellent customer service as well.
