IGL Coatings Paint Protection

Since April 2016, IGL Coatings Ecocoat Paint Protection System has been infused with diamond particles. Diamond Infusion TM improves the hardness and increases the coating’s resistance against harsh chemicals. Additionally, the catalyst for Diamond Infusion TM has been increased by more than twice its original amounts to reduce the interlayer curing time thus reducing wait time. Not only that, IGL Coatings has also added a slick additive to give it that nostalgic smooth feeling of good old traditional wax. 

2015 was an interesting and very successful year at IGL Coatings. IGL Coatings led the market segment for “low-VOC” and “easy-to-use” coatings, with more than 200 global installers validating the range, satisfying tens of thousands of vehicle owners.


With a strong foundation of early stage adopters, IGL Coatings were able to learn from the adopter’s vastful experience and hands on knowledge, especially addressing the needs of their clients. In line with IGL Coatings’ mission to create and deliver products that are unique to the market, IGL Coatings are constantly researching and studying additives to improve their products.



IGL Coatings has improved their formulations by incorporating nature’s hardest material into their formulations. The idea of infusing diamond powder aka carbon into their formulation started in April 2015 when Kenzo TM was still in developmental stages. With the infusion of diamond powder into the formulations, the Ecocoat TM Paint Protection system was enhanced by:

  • Improving its hardness and resistance to micro marring due to its carbon structure; and
  • Increased gloss due to the higher light dispersion ability.

The synthesis process is quite tedious and complicated. The diamond powder is required to be ground into < 5nm (based on SEM analysis). Diamond powder initially added to the formulation caused issues with precipitation, offering no extra benefit to the coatings.

After conducting further research, we discovered that dispersing the diamond powder into a small volume of ethanol before blending it into the existing formulation in a nitrogen-purged tank prevents both the diamond powder from precipitating and the entire solution from cross-linking during the entire process.



IGL Coatings recognises that time is a key component to our installers, as time is money. By increasing the amount of catalyst in our EcoCoat Quartz TM and Kenzo TM base, IGL Coatings reduced the interlayer curing time to only 2 hours instead of 4.

IGL Coatings achieved this feat whilst ensuring the catalyst is still within limitation of REACH requirements.



The IGL Coatings Professional Series Kenzo TM has revolutionised the way coatings feel. It creates a natural smoothness similar to silk. With Kenzo TM as base, IGL Coatings improved the smoothness of Ecocoat Quartz’s TM and Ecocoat Premier TM by adding a slick additive. As a result, the smoothness of Ecocoat Quartz TM and Ecocoat Premier TM is foreplay to the insane slick obtained from Kenzo TM.

The IGL Coatings Ecocoat Paint Protection System is the future, today.
