This rich collection of history, rigorous laboratory methodology and vast real-world active coverage is globally proven and unmatched to make sure your vehicle gets the best surface it can.
From our labs to your car, there really is nothing like RestorFX—and it only keeps getting better from here.
For many decades there has been little progress and technological advancement in restoring or repairing damaged vehicle paint. To date there are two general categories—detailing options to maintain a vehicle, or body shop options to repair and repaint a vehicle after an accident. So how does RestorFX fit into all this?
The detailing industry's primary focus is to maintain a vehicle's cleanliness and appearance inside and out—something quite time consuming but necessary to keep a vehicle clean and presentable. With less and less durable new manufacturer paint finishes coming out over the years—from the older tried-and-true single-stage to today's 2-part paints—the need for scratch repair and restoration keeps on increasing. To remedy this degradation of paint quality, the detailing industry gradually developed a variety of paint correction methods that cut away clear coat to try and achieve a fresh and shiny surface. However, this "fix" poses a major problem, because it shaves off extremely vital clear coat that is supposed to be there to protect the very surface being repaired. Although this technique is useful for minor damage, it can only be done so many times before there will be nothing left of the paint finish. For any more major damage than light swirl marks and hairline scratches, this approach will not only take hours and even days to cut away, but it is quite limited to actually repair and restore the surface. Detailing will always be vital way to maintain a vehicle's everyday needs for cleanliness, but it is not an efficient way to restore or fix clear coat damage.
In contrast, the body shop industry's primary focus is to repair major damage on any part of the exterior of a vehicle—whether it be an accident, rust or integrity issues. However, to use repainting as a way to restore or fix clear coat damage is extremely time-consuming and costly; and anytime a vehicle is repainted no matter what the issue, its integrity is lost.
RestorFX gives a whole new option to restore, fix and push the reset button on a vehicle's paint—with a turnaround time like a detail shop but able to permanently fix more damage like a body shop.
All three options have their place in the market—RestorFX may not be suitable for all situations, but its emerging new technology provides a whole new ability to solve problems in the marketplace.
RestorFX by nature is a restoration service. When the word "protection" is used, what often comes to mind is some sort of topical or sacrificial layer applied on top of a vehicle paint to help protect and armor it—whether it be a wax, paint sealant or ceramic coating. In this case then, no! RestorFX is not at all a protection product.
To better answer this question though, the layers that make up a paint finish on vehicles these days will need to be understood first. It all starts with metal, and primer gets sprayed over the metal and is technically used to both prepare the metal for paint AND protect the metal. Then paint gets sprayed over primer to add color, and then clear coat gets sprayed over the paint to protect the paint. All aspects of a paint finish are protecting the layer underneath itself.
RestorFX adds at least 9 microns of vital surface material to restore and technically PROTECT the paint finish below, restoring and upgrading a vehicle's finish to a new, harder and more UV-resistant surface. Although still using the original paint finish as its final substrate, RestorFX does in fact add more depth, and RestorFX becomes a protective layer and armor over the vehicle's paint together with the rest of the paint finish. So YES, in this case, RestorFX also protects.
RestorFX's fluxcoat technology is a permanent restoration treatment. Once RestorFX cures it will bond and become one with the original paint finish; and any existing damage that was repaired during the treatment process is permanently repaired, guaranteed.
RestorFX, once cured, will be extremely durable and oftentimes more durable and resistant then even the best manufacturer paint finishes. However, just like all new paint finishes, RestorFX is also subject to new wear and tear as it gets used over time.
RestorFX gives vehicles new life, like pushing the reset button on your paint finish and bringing it back to new again.
After each delivery, an aftercare sheet is provided to lay out the best practices for maintaining a pristine finish for as long as possible. Following these recommendations will ultimately be the best way to get the most longevity out of a brand new RestorFX treatment.
Extremely pleased with overall experience. Adam is very informative about the process, he explained exactly what they were going to be doing, he explained that there were a couple spots that he would not be able to get 100% ahead of doing the job so there would be no surprises . Only surprise was how incredible my truck looked when finished. RestoreFX restores my faith in true customer service and pride in workmanship. Would highly recommend this place.Teena Francis
Had my girlfriends 2019 ram 1500’s paint touched up and I’m nothing but satisfied with everything. Adam and Alyssa went out of their way to make sure it was perfect before we left. Super professional and prices were almost too good to be true. Highly recommend and I’m very picky about my vehicles so trust me when I say they go the extra mile for you.Lawrence Dusome
Great service. Easy to do business with. Great staff. I really enjoyed having them help me protect my truck.Michael Webb
I'm very please with my overall experience at RestorFX Barrie. Adam was very professional and went out if his way to educate me on the process and what I could expect in terms of results. In fact Adam even came by my house to do the initial inspection and consultation. The paint correction Adam and his team did has dramatically improved the appearance of my car. They took a high mile, 21 year old car and made it shine like it was freshly repainted. If you need something more comprehensive than a detail/polish but don't want to spend $ thousands on a new paint job, then check these guys out.Marcus Passafiume
I picked up a 2019 Volvo V60 that was in great condition a few months ago. Since it was the first "new to us" car in almost 10 years, I was interested in doing a ceramic coating to prolong the life of the paint/shine and maintain that amazing Crystal White paint that is an upgrade from the factory. I had Adam and the RestorFX Barrie team go over the car and assess it to ensure it was suitable for the ClearFX Ceramic coating. It was and they kept me up to date during the process and pointed out some minor paint touch ups as required (it's a used car after all). It was a great process and experience and when the car was picked up, it looked amazing! The RestorFX Barrie team also took some time to do some detailing inside. They followed up with instructions on how to maintain a clean car with ClearFX Ceramic. They also wiped down touched surfaces with bacteria disinfectant spray - a commitment to ensure everyone stays safe. Overall very happy with the product and service!Michael Law
