Ceramic Coating

Flower City Customs is Proud to offer Total Surface Protection packages to meet and exceed your vehicle’s expectations! We are currently offering a variety of “Smart Surface Technology” protectants for the interior and exterior of your vehicle all professionally installed by appointment for your convenience.

Exterior Protection Services include Synthetic and Ceramic Paint Sealants, Wheel Armor Protection and Smart Glass Window Coating.

Interior Protection Services include Smart Fabric Protection with BioCote* and Leather Guard Protection with BioCote.

*BioCote is the antimicrobial technology that kills %99.9 of bacteria that comes into contact with the protected surface making the interior of your vehicle a more hygienic place to be.


C1 has been independently proven in the world’s most respected weathering facility. It offers the best gloss retention out of all products tested. Over a simulated run of 3 years in Arizona sunlight, a C1 coated panel lost half the amount of gloss as its next best competitor, and a third less gloss than the average score for all other products tested.
As well as gloss retention C1 Crystal Lacquer is extremely durable, as it actually becomes the functional surface of a car’s paintwork. Also scratch-resistant, C1 forms a crystalline film which is extremely hard – this characteristic makes it effective at preventing minor scratching from poor wash technique on relatively soft automotive paint.
C1 coated panels have been tested against uncoated panels, as well as high-end carnauba waxes and polymer sealants.
On average, panels coated with Gtechniq C1, exhibited 50 percent fewer swirl marks than those coated with waxes or left uncoated.
• 3 to 5 years durability
• Excellent swirl mark resistance
• Crystal clear finish


EXOv3 broke the mold of durable coatings. For the first time, this category of coating offered a warm gloss look, slick finish, and unsurpassed water repellency, which when combined with easy application made it our best selling product.
Gtechniq is always pushing the limits of performance coatings. Intense experiments and real world tests with a new ground-breaking, hard, organic material revealed we could offer a leap forward in the performance of EXO. Tests have proved conclusively that the harder material offered major improvements in durability, chemical resistance and resistance to surface staining (particularly from water spots), as well as retaining the warm gloss finish and superb hydrophobic function that made the previous formula a smash hit.
All of the above combined with the introduction of a good degree of scratch resistance means EXOv3 represents a major leap forward in Last Surface Protection (LSP) technology.
• Improved durability (EXOv2: 12 – 18 months. EXOv3: 18 – 24 months)
• Same great gloss, water and dirt repellency
• Crystal Clear Finish

Crystal Serum

Crystal Serum provides paint protection is like no other product with previously unachievable levels of gloss, durability, scratch and chemical resistance.

Its composite structure offers the ultimate in ceramic protection plus the same slick finish and candy like gloss as the very best carnauba waxes.
The hard 9h top and softer 7h base layer offer improved swirl resistance over regular 9h coatings. Compared to standard ceramic coatings, Crystal Serum forms a relatively thick combined film which greatly reduces surface hazing and improves gloss.
Resistant to chemicals from ph2 to ph13, so when you clean your car, even the harshest wash chemicals will not dull your gloss. And on top of that, contaminants like bird droppings are easy to remove.
Please note that while Crystal Serum is very resistant to bird droppings, the “mechanical” effect of hot paintwork swelling around bird droppings left on your vehicle’s surface means that some etching from bird droppings can occur. We therefore recommend you remove bird droppings immediately, and in the unlikely event of paintwork etching, our Accredited Detailers will be able to remove and recoat affected areas.

Crystal Serum is unaffected by extreme heat changes – even from -40 to +250 degrees Celsius – and offers exceptional UV protection which prevents premature dulling.
• Ultimate in gloss enhancement, swirl and chemical resistance
• Crystal Clear Finish

C5 Wheel Armor Protection

C5 Wheel Armor Protection is based on similar technology as our C1, C5 provides the best protection for wheels, whether standard or alloys.
Because of C5’s unique, exceptionally fine surface rheology and chemical bonding mechanism, its performance is outstanding. The former property gives the coating its excellent stain and contaminant resistance, and the chemical bond formed between the wheel surface and C5 makes the coating durable.
• 1 to 2 years durability
• Repels brake dust making your rims very easy to keep clean
• Crystal Clear Finish

Smart Glass Window Coating

Smart Glass Window Coating Unlike regular rain repellent coatings that adhere to the surface of the glass using relatively weak physical bonds, G1 uses a chemical bond which gives G1 unrivalled durability. G1’s excellent durability and exceptionally low smear characteristics make it ideal for car windscreens.
• 1 to 2 years durability
• Improves wet weather visibility helping to improve safety and eye strain
• Makes ice, bugs, tree sap etc. much easier to remove

Interior Protection

I1 Smart Fabric

I1 Smart Fabric protects all kinds of fabrics from water and oil based stains. It is breathable and extremely durable thanks to unique Gtechniq 3S Smart Surface Science.

With added BioCote® antimicrobial technology, treated surfaces will kill 99.9% of bacteria.
I1 Smart Fabric makes ordinary fabrics waterproof and easy to clean. Use it to prevent soaking, swelling or rotting on any fabric. From sails, tents and awnings to your car’s soft top and interior.

The nano particles of I1 coat each fabric fiber individually, leaving the texture unaffected, allowing the material to breathe. This means stale air will still be able to escape, while repelling water and and oil-based liquids.

Being alcohol based ensures a much deeper penetration of the active ingredient giving an I1 treated surface much better durability and overall performance. Typically an I1 treated surface will last 5 times longer than conventional water repellent coatings, with the lifespan of the product on soft tops for as long as 3 years
• Antibacterial
• Anti mould and mildew
• Highly oil and water repellent

L1 Leather Guard

L1 Leather Guard forms a durable abrasion resistant matte finish which offers the best ever protection against abrasion damage, UV rays, dye transfer and other discoloration.

With added BioCote® antimicrobial technology, treated surfaces will kill 99.9% of bacteria.
Friction protection is particularly important on seat bolsters, seat piping and any other high wear areas. The anti stain function is most relevant for light coloured leathers which are typically stained by dark coloured fabrics such as indigo jeans.

Myth buster: Many leather products market themselves on how they feed leather, when in fact this is not needed. Modern automotive leather use synthetic fat liquors which do not evaporate. Any product that is designed to feed leathers will not be absorbed by modern automotive leathers but instead remain on the surface attracting dirt which will then act as an abrasive foreshortening the leather’s finish.

• Antibacterial
• 3 to 12 months durability
• Abrasion resistant
