Next weekend I’ll be cleaning off all of the coatings now on my Model S with SimpleGreen Extreme Aircraft and Precision Cleaner (safely removes wax and other finishes), using a clay bar on the paint, then applying a 10 percent solution of Permanon Aircraft Supershine (a relatively new German made product that’s used on aircraft). The product was designed for aircraft but can be used safely on cars and many other surfaces. From the Permanon web site: “Permanon is a safe and simple-to-apply surface protection that produces a brilliant shine on all solid aircraft surfaces. When applied, nano-engineered particles of Permanon's Silicium 14Si electro-statically bonds and fill microscopic pores and pits that naturally occur in solid materials. These nono-imperfections allow dirt and grime to bond to the surface, Permanon bridges and fills these gaps making it harder for dirt to embed.” According to the claims I’ve seen, Permanon is the next generation coating after Opticoat Pro, and sticks to any negatively-charged surface, which means paint, chrome, glass, PlastiDip, and so on. It's supposed to be better than OptiCoat Pro on Xpel and other self-healing surfaces as there is no rigid cross-linked shell to permanently breach. It's been likened to nanoscopic fish scales, which makes it applicable to new paint as well as water-wet surfaces, as its function is electrostatic. One coat is supposed to last for a year on aircraft, and this product is authorized by Boeing for use on its aircraft. It’s just mixed with distilled water than sprayed on a squeaky clean painted or other surface then wiped down with microfiber towels. Pretty simple with none of the effort of other finishes. Is all of this too good to be true? I’ll be running the B.S. meter Saturday, July 2. When I get it all done that day I’ll post comments and photos. We’ll see if the claims are just hype or true.
