Scratches and dings can spoil the appearance of even the most expensive car. Panoz is a specialty vehicle manufacturer. The company is a small, independent firm that makes hand-built high-performance coupes and roadsters for enthusiasts of really powerful cars. These vehicles are based on its highly popular Esperante, which is powered by custom-built 6.2-liter V8s engine. The company has announced that shortly all the vehicles it makes will sport self-healing paint to make them even more attractive.
The company has signed on with Feynlab and will be using Feynlab’s Self-Heal Plus coating for the paint jobs on new Panoz vehicles. Feynlab specializes in “nano coatings” to protect cars from UV damage, marring and chemicals as well as scratches. The “Self-Heal Plus” coating is a memory polymer and can form back to its original condition when it is scratched and exposed to heat. Thus, the coating can reform in its original configuration when it is exposed to heat.
The companies say the coating is highly effective in the case of light scratches and swirl marks. All you need to do when such instances occur is leave the car in the sun, or just use a hair dryer. The heat will cause the coating to return to its original form. It would be tough to repair really deep scratches.
The coating will be offered as a standard feature on all new Panoz cars.
