Today (Wednesday 20 February 2019), a leading high-performance, surface protection manufacturer has launched a flexible ceramic coating designed to enhance the performance of Paint Protection Film (PPF) and vinyl, and keep it looking at best.

Gtechniq, UK formulators of ceramic paint protection and car detailing products, announced the revolutionary coating, that has been deemed “outstanding” by the infamous Yiannimize car wrapper Yianni Charalambous, was now available to the masses.

HALO, the product that really is a blessing for PPF and vinyl, is a chemically bonding, ultra-dense, yet flexible film. Once applied, the chemical bond makes HALO the permanent surface of a vehicle’s PPF or vinyl – protecting it from the elements that a car is exposed to on a daily basis.

Celebrity car wrapper and TV supercar customiser, Yianni Charalambous, whose company Yiannimize were given exclusive access to the product pre-launch, said: “We are always on the lookout for new products that will protect as well as enhance the wraps we do for customers.”

Yianni applied HALO to his own, daily driven Lamborghini Aventador S, which is wrapped in a chrome turquoise, he added: “Halo fits the bill perfectly! It’s straight forward to apply and does exactly what we need it to, without damaging the vinyl wrap we’ve installed. My car looks outstanding.”

Rob Earle, Gtechniq managing director who heads up product development, said: “The density of the coating and its low surface energy improve dirt and water repellency of PPF or vinyl. It also helps to prevent staining from dirt ingression, as well as reducing yellowing caused by UV rays.

“It’s a win, win product that keeps the PPF looking in a much better condition and makes it much easier for people to keep their car clean following PPF application.”

Rigorous real-world and laboratory testing has proven HALO to be compatible with all types of gloss, matte, and satin vinyl and PPF. It is also proven to work on self-healing films.

At RRP £49.99 for 30ml, or 50ml for £75.00, HALO Flexible Film Coating is available from gtechniq.com and all good independent car detailing stockists.
