How Does It Work?

Acid Rain

Irregular patches of rough, discolored, or disintegrated surface possibly resulting in a crazing or cracking appearance.


Exposure to rain containing effluents from manufacturing, chemical industry and power stations.

Tree Sap

Sap spots that resemble spots of pancake syrup in various sizes.



Tree sap in contact with vehicle's finish. If not removed will cause paint to crack.

Bird Droppings

Friendly Honda Poughkeepsie NY

Finish damage or spot etching. The longer the dropping stays on the finish, the more severe the etching may become.


The problem is seasonal, regional and affected by the bird population. The organic etching is accelerated by intensified heat.

Did You Know...

The Environmental Protection Agency concluded that acid rain etches dull looking spots into the paint finish of your vehicle.

Newsweek stated that acid rain is now a nation problem.

In fact, the Washington Post claimed that acid rain causes $7 billion in damage annually.

Much like a good sunscreen protects your skin, paint protection shields a vehicle's valuable paint surface from dangerous ultra violet rays. Equally important, paint protection creates a protective barrier that shields the paint from environmental hazards including tree sap, bird droppings, road grime and industrial contaminants. Appearance-wise, paint protection brings out and maintains the depth and luster within every professional paint job.

To protect your paint and appearance we professionally complete two important steps. First, to be treated, the surface must be prepared for the paint by removing any dirt, or industrial contaminants. This is accomplished with a high-grade cleaner/polish. Next, the paint protection is applied to protect the original paint against degradation caused by environmental hazards and UV radiation.
