BAF Industries Launched New Synergy Product Line during the 2018 SEMA Show
The New Synergy Product Line consists of four different products: the Synergy Painting Coating, the Synergy Glass Coating, the Synergy Trim Coating, and the Synergy Ceramic Detail Spray.
The S-1 Synergy Paint Coating represents a revolutionary advance in paint protection. Synergy is a semi-permanent, super hydrophobic nano ceramic coating specifically designed for painted finishes. This high tech coating creates an extremely hard, slick, clear barrier of protection on painted finishes. Synergy chemically bonds with the factory paint by penetrating the vehicle’s clear coat finish to form a second layer and thicker coating for added protection.
The S-2 Synergy Glass Coating is a super hydrophobic nano ceramic coating specifically designed for glass. This high tech coating creates an extremely hard, slick, clear barrier of protection on exterior glass surfaces. Synergy chemically bonds by penetrating the top surface of the glass, increasing the contact angle of the glass surface and water. This super hydrophobic surface increases water repellency, causing water to bead and easily sheet off the glass.
The S-3 Synergy Trim Coating is an innovative automotive trim restoration product that brings faded interior and exterior trim back to a factory appearance. Synergy is a special formula engineered specifically to restore, protect and seal trim surfaces made of rubber and plastic. Our unique formula combines advanced polymer technology to provide a super hydrophobic, long lasting, protective finish.
The S-4-P Synergy Ceramic Detail Spray is a quick detail spray for vehicles that have been treated with Synergy Coatings. The product is designed as an easy-to-use, spray and wipe detail spray booster for coating preservation. Formulated to maintain and enhance the brilliant shine and protection of Synergy Coatings.
