#SAM is a type of stand-alone coating which, thanks to the “Self-Assembled Monolayer” technology on which it is based, can be applied as a single layer, ensuring effective chemical-physical protection on any type of bodywork.
Once applied to the surface, #SAM spontaneously forms a coating thanks to chemical adsorption and to the self-organisation of organic molecules consisting of reactive “head groups” and selected “functional” chemical groups (functionalised molecules) in order to obtain the best balance between physical protection and hydrophobic performance. Application on specially prepared surfaces is necessary in order to “free” the active surface sites with which #SAM will form a stable chemical bond and thus obtain the best possible performance in terms of effectiveness and durability.
#SAM can be overlaid and stratified with #HPC after at least 2 hours to achieve the highest possible level of protection.
#HPC paves the way to a whole new category of coatings dedicated to the overcoat. Thanks to its “nano hydro-gel system” technology, it creates a hydrophobic membrane with a polymeric matrix made up of “building blocks”, which form lattices and adhere directly to the surface at room temperature, creating a highly resistant and elastic layer.
#HPC is resistant to chemical, saline and uv ray attacks which cause corrosion and non-removable stains it also has antifouling properties its distinguishing feature is its antistatic and antifouling capacity, leaving the car clean for longer.
The #HPC coating can be applied alone or as a protective agent on other #labocosmetica coatings (top coating) this membrane creates a three-dimensional gloss that provides deep shine and enhances the colour of the paint.
The #Labocosmetica coatings were subjected to different stress tests first in the laboratory and then directly in the field thanks also to the collaboration of different international detailers.
We have selected the cities with the most extreme climatic conditions in the world: Dubai (United Arab Emirates) for the scorching heat and its sandstorms, Delhi (India) and Manila (Philippines) for the suffocating smog and the tropical heat, Moscow (Russia) and Gothenburg (Sweden) for the cold and the road conditions, in addition to the major European capitals where the climatic and road conditions are certainly more normal.
It should be noted that for the entire duration of the tests it was not always possible to comply with the coating maintenance program recommended by us.
This allowed us to verify the condition of the treated surface in the worst situation.
With the results of the numerous tests we have made a weighted average where it can be seen that one year of life of our coatings is approximately 15,000 km.
Based on this data, we can therefore state that:
– Duration of #SAM + #HPC is 60,000 km or 4 years
