Key in the formation of the ideas about the car in the eyes of others is their appearance. The machine can be arbitrarily powerful and unusual in terms of features, but if it has a standard body without interesting details, they don't pay attention to the thread.
Now the rental market cosmetics offers drivers the widest range of products for the maintenance of the car, among which a certain segment to go Polish for the body. Usually they are a mixture of wax, silicones and polymers. The service life of the layer is short. As a general rule, it is a season, about 5-6 months if we are talking about quality formulations.
A special case is liquid crystal for automobiles, which is a special composition of synthetic ingredients. This tool not only gives the exterior a gorgeous Shine, but it also has many advantages over the Polish.
The first liquid crystal display for car took place back in 2008 in Japan, and its popularity in a few years swept the world. Currently produce liquid glass for cars, not only in Japan, but Japanese trains are the most common.
It is possible to identify three types of compounds that are known as liquid crystal, focusing on the main component operating:
According to the method of application of the liquid crystal can be divided into two groups:
Consider the main advantages of this method of treatment of the body:
The main disadvantage of liquid crystal is its price. If you carry out the procedure with their hands, all the cost is reduced to the acquisition of the high quality of the material for processing. If polishing is to be performed by the technical service, the cost is a result of the increase. Payment for services will vary depending on the class of car, the coatings, a variety of liquid crystal and the number of desired layers.
A relative drawback of this method can be considered the specificity of the intervention. If you carry out the application of liquid glass with their hands, it is important to note some of the complexities of the process. Otherwise, not only can not achieve the desired effect, but also spoil the look of the car.
Important: During the self-application of liquid crystal it is necessary to observe clearly the process, otherwise, is likely to spoil the appearance of the car. To remove liquid crystal after the solidification is extremely difficult.
To apply liquid crystal to the surface of the bodywork of the vehicle must buy the same tool (can be built with the agent curing), a cloth for polishing the car rags (the rags), gloves, a container and a tube for mixing.
Please note: depending on the composition, manner of applying it to the bodywork of the vehicle may be different. Be sure to read the instructions for the melted glass.
Before you begin, you need to drive the car in a heated garage, if the work is carried out in the winter. If the job is to go in the summer, also the car is important to put in the room where it will receive direct sunlight. The optimal ambient temperature during work — from +10 to +40 degrees. Here is an instruction of how to apply liquid glass to a car body independently:
After you apply liquid glass to a car body to be completed, must let the car "dry" for 5-6 hours (sometimes the time can vary up to a day, depending on the composition).
Important: within 7 days after the application of liquid crystal on the surface of the vehicle may not be used to clear the body of chemical substances, including specialized shampoos.
