Fiets waterafstotende coating EVEN HARDER THAN PAINT

Hydro coating information

The award-winning Proteam Hydro Coating is an innovative paint coating which is applied to the frame and hard components. It is a paint protection like no other on the market and is groundbreaking by the Silicon dioxide (SiO₂) technology.

Silicon dioxide is an important component of glass, it is very hard, almost insoluble and resistant to many chemicals. The ultra-thin layer formed with our coatings is extremely hydrophobic, long-lasting and invisible. Coatings with SiO2 are also called “Liquid Glass” coatings: the surface is provided with a glass layer on a nanoscale.

THE MOST CHARACTERISTIC QUALITY OF THE PROTEAM HYDRO COATING IS THE HYDROFOBIC EFFECT OF WATER AND DIRT. A BICYCLE PROTECTED BY OUR HYDRO COATING REMAINS CLEANER MUCH LONGER. MAINTENANCE IS EASY AND COSTS LESS TIME.

what is SILICON DIOXIDE?

Silicon dioxide (SiO2) is an important component of glass, it is extremely hard, almost insoluble in water and resistant to many chemicals. The ultra-thin layer formed with our coatings is extremely hydrophobic, long-lasting and transparent. Coatings with SiO2are also called “Liquid Glass” coatings: the surface is provided with a glass layer on a nanoscale.

ADVANTAGES OF THE PROTEAM HYDROFOBIC COATING

  Very durable solution, once applied correctly, the coating will protect the paint and other parts on the bicycle for years.
  UV-protective and resistant to high temperatures.
Extreme water and dirt-resistant hydrophobic properties. Dirt will no longer stick.
Washing and general maintenance becomes much easier.
Retains the shine for a much longer time.
Matt lacquers continue to give a full, luxurious appearance for a much longer time.

coating vs wax

We are FREQUENTLY asked what the difference is between the Proteam Hydro coating and a traditional wax or spray.

Wax is a protective layer that uses wax as the main ingredient. This is perhaps the most well-known form of protection. It is cheap but doesn’t have many advantages.

A spray for the frame usually consists of silicone. It applies a temporary, water-repellent layer to the frame. However, this layer only lasts for a very short period of time. It is easy to apply, but has a limited and very temporary effect.

The Proteam hydrophobic coating is a very different kind of product than wax and adheres deeper and more firmly in the pores of the lacquer, it reacts with the substrate and forms a hard protective layer that is much more durable than wax. Our coating is the first and only developed specifically for bicycles.
