I did search the local automotive industry and i found out most of the coating is either made of Silica SiO2, teflon such as PPS or Titanium Oxide TiO2
Among these 3 technology SiO2 has the most glossy effect but with hardness of 5H. I was told Teflon is old technology. TiO2 has the highess hardness up to 12H and yet is very glossy too.
Another advantage of TiO2 is it can also bind to plastic (head lamp), rubber and chrome area giving a total protection.
So my wife asked why do i need paint coating when the car is already shining!
At first glance, the original paint is glossy enough.
I decided to give En Mazri a call. He is from Nano Brite Sdn Bhd and he claim he have a solution for me. I was given a brief technical briefing on what is TiO2, how it works, the process and what to expect from it. After agreeing to the pricing (which depend on the size of your car) and workflow the show begins.

I was lucky enough to have the Master himself to work on my new car. We have breakfast together at 9 am and the actual work commence on 10 am. He is a man of perfection and it means...need more time but is ok for me as i also want it done right the first time.
The Master do not compromise on quality and that is why he used the best solution available in the market. Most of these ingredient is not cheap. Eg a 3M Rubbing Compound and a new polish foam from Japan.
I will leave the talking to the pictures shown below. My car is not yet completed yet as it needs 72 hours to really harden before it goes for final finishing touch. But i just want to share how glossy it is and areas which the TiO2 is being applied for protection. I will post more photos of the final finishing touch later :)
