Re: Self healing paint

I'm not so sure it's commercially available. The most current (recent) information I could dig up about this paint is about a 2010 Infiniti: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pqk-7UXSNzM

All the news stories about the paint were dated 2009 or earlier, so I couldn't find any information on availability, etc.

Re: Self healing paint

speediva is correct. You can't buy it yet. And when you can (or when you buy your Infiniti), don't expect miracles. If someone keys your car, you're SOL. But swirl marks and such will heal.

That would be "Scracth shield paint". Infiniti offers it on their cars but I don't know of any aftermarket paint shops offering it.

It's self healing ability is limited to light surface maring.
They recommend that you "Do not" use wax on it because it wil arrest the paints healing process.
