You name it, it was coated! Mercedes E53 AMG & IGL Ceramic Coatings!

We recently handed back our clients Ex-Demonstrator Mercedes E53 AMG, it was booked in for the following treatments -

Light Enhancement

IGL Quartz

IGL Eclipse Wheel Coating

IGL Window

IGL Trim

IGL Fabric

Our client essentially wanted every surface protected and coated using the best available products.

IGL Ceramic Coatings are the only ceramic coating which is ISO9001, TUV Certified and REACH Compliant.

This mean they are rigorously and continuously tested to ensure they meet strict guidelines.

More information about IGL can be found at or

Below is an overview of what was done to this Mercedes E53 AMG

Light Enhancement -

Before any coatings can take place the vehicle needs to be cleaned, full decontaminated and enhanced. A light enhancement includes a 6 stage safe wash, we then chemically and physically decontaminate the paint.

We complete a single stage machine polish, this removes up to roughly 50-60% of swirls and light scratches but also significantly enhances the paints finish, giving the paint a fresh glossy look.

We were also asked to remove the badges off the rear of the vehicle.

IGL Quartz -

IGL Quartz offers up to 2 years protection (We are also certified to install Quartz+ 3 year coating), it adds unrivalled gloss, fantastic protection and the water behaviour is incredible (beading).

IGL Eclipse -

We applied IGL Eclipse to the wheels faces.

IGL Eclipse is predominantly an industrial based ceramic coating, because it has been designed for use in harsh environments this means it is perfectly suited for use on wheels, brakes calipers, engine bays and the under body of vehicles.

IGL Eclipse benefits and features -

REACH Compliant

10H Full Cure Hardness

Self Cleaning Effect

Non Hazardous

This coating can and has been used in industrial, agricultural and plant based environments, it has also been used to coat handrails, hobs, fridges and kitchen surfaces. It is such a fantastic and versatile product!

IGL Window -

IGL Ecocoat Window is a REACH compliant ceramic coating based on nanotechnology for all glass surfaces, glazed ceramics, smooth polycarbonates or plastics.

It creates a super water repellent surface, prevents water spots and is resistant to high wiper wear by modifying the surface. The result is safe driving conditions during heavy rain, as the rainwater will roll off at the speed of 30mph.

The coated surface repels rain, dirt and increases the defrosting speeds that will last for up to 1 year.

IGL Trim -

IGL Ecocoat Trim is a technologically advanced REACH compliant ceramic coating to protect the trim, rubber and plastic surfaces.

It is a highly reactive ceramic coating based on nanotechnology that instantly impregnates and forms a chemical bond which crosslinks the coated surface and restores the faded colour in the plastic surface.

The result is a rejuvenated, enriched and protected surface that will resist fading for up to 2 years.

IGL Fabric -

IGL Ecocoat Fabric is a REACH compliant 100% breathable, water based, zero VOC silica coating.

Utilising nanotechnology, it creates an invisible layer which covers each individual fibre of the textile or leather to repels undesirable liquid, dirt and UV-radiation.

It can be applied on virtually any porous surfaces. The result is protection against unwanted liquids, dirt and stains without altering the flexibility, appearance or odour of the coated surface.
