“Hello, this is Rich at Polished Bliss, and in this video I’m going to tell you a little bit about Auto Finesse Tough Coat, and in particular how great it looks, particularly on lighter coloured cars.
So, what is Tough Coat? Well, in simple terms, it’s a synthetic paint sealant that protects car bodywork against bird droppings, bug splatter, road salt and harmful UV rays from the sun. Treated surfaces also become partially self-cleaning, due to a strong water sheeting effect that encourages fresh contaminants to be washed away. This reduces the need for regular maintenance, and makes routine washing easier and less time consuming as a result.
Tough Coat is packed full of acrylic polymers suspended in a solvent-based carrier solution. The acrylic component tends to settle out in the bottle in storage, so you do need to make sure that you shake the bottle thoroughly to re-mix it every time you use it. Application is simple and relatively effortless to say the least. You simply mist a foam applicator pad with product, wipe a thin, even film over each panel, and then buff off the residue once dry. Few other products are as easy to buff off; a gentle wipe with a plush microfibre towel does the trick in no time at all.
Although it will vary slightly from car to car, a lifespan of around three to four months per application is realistically achievable under typical UK driving conditions, even on cars used as daily drivers, and this can be extended further if it is layered from the outset. Like most synthetic sealants, Tough Coat works best on cooler colours, and in particular whites, silvers and greys. This is because it imparts an ultra smooth high gloss finish that greatly enhances reflectivity. And on lighter coloured cars, maximising reflectivity is the secret to achieving a jaw dropping finish.
In summary, Tough Coat is an easy to use synthetic sealant that makes car bodywork look amazing, and also offers long lasting protection against the elements. In our opinion, it’s another must have product from the excellent Auto Finesse line, particularly for white and silver cars.
