5 Star Shine uses a process called electrophoresis dynamics. First, the surface is cleaned with the polarizer before it is sealed. This opens the pores in the paint and imparts a positive charge, which attracts an anionic PTFE solution that is magnetically pulled into the pores of the paint. The open pores of a painted surface are filled with a plasticizer, which forms a barrier to prevent the penetration of any other elements. The formula plates, bonds and cross-links the PTFE molecules, producing a depth of shine, durability and protection from corrosion.
In layman’s terms, it works like this: First, wash your vehicle normally to remove all dirt. Wash again using 5 Star Shine Polarizing Wash solution. Make sure paint surfaces are dry. Apply 5 Star Shine Paint Protection coat. Wipe off. You’re done. The entire application process takes only about an hour.
In independent laboratory tests, the patented formula was checked for durability; the tests concluded that 150 car washes had no effect on the coating -- it was still protecting and beading water while a brand name car wax that was also tested failed after only 25 car washes.
“5 Star Shine’s PTFE finish is one of the slipperiest substances known to man,” says Canady. This slick coating repels dirt and keeps your car much cleaner. When washing is needed, simply rinse dirt away with a hose -- dirt, bugs, tree sap and more simply slide off the painted surface. It is completely safe on all paints, clear coats, and fiberglass gel coats. Your paint has that wet, “just waxed” look year around.
In a testament to the product’s durability, the U.S. Navy protects its on-ship Aegis radars with the product. These massive vessels travel the sea and suffer the effects of salt water and high winds on a regular basis. 5 Star Shine protects the ship’s exposed radar equipment in the harshest marine environments. “If it can withstand these conditions, just think what it will do for your car,” says Canady.
One 5 Star Shine kit will protect 250 square feet, which is more than enough for a car and even the largest SUV. It can also be used to protect boats and planes.
