Testamonial from Dallas, TX

We always like it when we can speak with our customers to find out how they are using Permanon.  I received this reply that I thought some would appreciate reading too.

S. B. from Dallas, Texas writes:

I saw a demonstration of your finishes at the Dallas Auto Show......just a few weeks ago.  It was at a booth where several pickup trucks that had been heavily customized were being shown off.......some kind of local truck club....I think....didn't get their name.

Some of them had that matte finish......and I noticed they looked better than any other matte finished cars at the show.  Then I looked around and noticed that all the other trucks looked fantastic too.  I had assumed that they were all new and just off the lot after being customized and was surprised to find out that several of them had more than 100,000 miles on them....(several years old since their customizations)........and most were daily drivers.

I asked what in the world the club was using to get that kind of finish (both matte and shiny) so, I was told Permanon.

I came home and ordered the glass cleaner 1/2 liter from autopia car care (I think).....they only had a few of the Permanon products.  So, to make a long story short, I mixed it up and used it all around the house and on my truck.  WOW! what a difference...  so I went to the Permanon website and found you guys......you carry many more of the Permanon products than autopia.

I ordered Platinum and Diamond and the neat Swiss sprayer......and PS paste...used them on my truck...WOW again !!!!!!!!!!

Decided to just go ahead and get the liter sizes of Sanide and Glass two in one as I was already down to about 1/2 my original order of glass.

I use it on my eyeglasses, computer screens, flat screen TV,  of course on all three of my cars.  I used it on the exterior windows of my house....WOW!!!  (and I mean REALLY wow!!!!!!)

on the granite counter tops of my kitchen,  on the tile in my bathroom, the mirrors in my bathroom,  the porcelain sinks and toilets of my bathroom (after polishing with bar keeper's friend),  all the glass "panes" of all the artwork hanging on all my walls,  the glass "coverings" of my various clocks, the hand hammered copper mailbox out front........and the bronze street number sign.

I just had a brand new $14,000 air conditioner system installed.......and I used the platinum on the outdoor Carrier compressor unit.....hopefully will keep its finish looking good for a long time. It is fantastic when used with a microfiber to clean and polish my laptop and Ipad, Ipod and Iphone.........!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To sum up, I am using this on almost every hard shiny surface inside and outside my home.

BTW :   the diamond 2 in 1 is FANTASTIC as a cleaner for my dash inside my car, and on the door panels (basically everywhere except fabrics inside the car)...and on and on.

If I find a new use, I will let you know...

Permanon Protection for Window Tint and Vinyl Advertising Wrap

Here's another great question that came in today:

“Can Permanon be applied to window tint?”

The Answer:

Yes, with benefits! Use Permanon PSI+14 Silver.

The Benefits:

1.) Permanon fills the nano-pores of the window tint material making it clearer, and most of all easier to clean.

2.) Permanon provides UV protection which makes the tint last longer. Remember the tint is designed to block out UV radiation. But Permanon protects the tint material itself from harmful UV deterioration.

CAUTION: Window tint will not adhere to glass that has been treated with Permanon. Why?  Because Permanon fills the nano-pores of the glass.  It's those microscopic pores that allow the window tint to adhere to the glass.

Vinyl Advertising Wrap

You know the kind seen on the sides of buses, vans, and trailers advertising a product? And now wrap is available to totally change the color of your car even in matte colors.  Permanon is perfect to enhance and UV protect the wrap for a longer life by taking away the foothold for road grime to adhere making it easier to maintain. Finger prints and road dirt easily wash away on all gloss, semi-gloss and matte finishes.

Permanon is so easy to apply: Mix a 5% solution in water, mist Permanon onto the window tint or a cleaned wrap surface, and dry immediately.  For interior window tint, just mist on and micro-fiber cloth dry. It's that easy.

Thank you for your questions. Remember, Permanon is designed to protect ANY hard surface, not just window tint and vinyl wraps.

Visit our web site to purchase Permanon and your application accessories. 2-3 day Priority Mail shipping is FREE for any order over $50 to any location within the United States.  If you have a comment or question about our products, post a comment on this blog where everyone can benefit from an answer, or send a private message through our contact page.


Permanon Finishes

Permanon Recommendations for Gel Coat Finishes

There have been some discrepancies regarding the mix percentage of Permanon Yacht Supershine concentrate to use on Gel coat finishes. The standard recommendation for first-time applications is a 10% mix.  Maintenance applications and interior surfaces only require a 3-5% mix. Full-strength applications of Permanon Yacht Supershine is reserved for only those areas that are sensitive to constant exposure to the sun's harmful UV radiation, such as varnished wood.

The required mix ratio can vary based on the age and condition of a Gel coat. So we ask you a few questions to better qualify the condition of your gel coat. Has the gel coat been properly maintained?  Is it faded?  Is it peeling?  Are you in a hot sunny climate?  Is it a new or older boat?

To be clear, Permanon is a finish protection solution, simple to apply, maintaining your gel coat or any hard surface so it looks new, lasts longer, and cleans so much easier. It will not bring back a faded (chalking) or worn surface where the Gel coat has started to break down. A faded surface needs to be professionally buffed where a surface that is actually breaking down may need a new color Gel coat applied. Once the Gel coat has been restored it can be maintained with Permanon Yacht Supershine.  Properly maintained with Permanon your Gel coat will not require any further buffing or polishing.

NOTE: After any buffing/polishing (pre-Permanon), wash the surface with a clean detergent. This will remove any buffing compounds or residual waxes from the nano-pores preparing the surface for a Permanon Yacht application.

Recommended concentrations of Permanon to water
for FIRST-TIME APPLICATIONS on your Gel coat finish:

- New Gel coat: 10%
- Finished (varnish/urethane) wood work: 100%
- Slightly faded, or hot sun environment and daily commercial use: 20-50% as needed.

Maintenance applications from this point forward can be applied with a 3-5% mix of Permanon as needed, based on use, which can be determined by periodically testing the surface to see if water is still beading up or sheeting away quickly. The exception to this is the finished wood work. Normally finished woodwork in maintained annually with a light sanding and re-coat. Properly maintained with Permanon, this arduous process is no longer required.  If the finished wood work does not come into contact with anything abrasive (rope, etc), then a 100% concentrate application can be applied annually. Wood work surfaces that are exposed to abrasive elements will require more frequent applications, as needed.

NOTE: When applying it is important to remember that Permanon cannot adhere to itself, so a second application will only wash away and be wasted. 

The Benefits: Easy application, protection that maintains the new look of your boat or yacht, and less time cleaning leaves you more time to enjoy cruising, sailing or sport fishing.
