International Recognition from the SEMA Global Media Awards

The SEMA Global Media Awards Program recognizes companies that manufacture specialty equipment products and accessories that would have mass appeal to consumers internationally. The products are voted on by a prestigious group of international journalists who serve as judges.

“The SEMA Global Media Awards taps top international media experts to weigh in on which new products that are likely to succeed internationally,” shares Linda Spencer, SEMA Director of International and Government Relations. This year’s program included about 11 judges from seven countries. Each judge carefully reviews and evaluates nearly 2,000 product entries at the SEMA Show before selecting the products that they feel would resonate and appeal most to consumers internationally.

Green Excitement at SEMA Show 2023

IGL Coatings launched Ecocoat Elixir, their 3 year, single-layer ceramic coating. Keong shared, “Elixir is our next step into our single-layer range, the first being Ecocoat EZ; launched in 2021.

Elixir caters specifically to the needs of detailers, including mobile ones who require more flexible location options, thanks to its formulation for efficiency. Keong explained, “Elixir, at stable environments, can be applied both indoors and outdoors. Many detailers have wished for this and I am glad to see it finally materialize”.

The newly launched Elixir gives better flexibility in terms of locations and increased profitability for the IGL detailers.

1. Outdoor Application
2. Improved waterspot resistance
3. improved self cleaning
4. improved hydrophobics (water contact angle >110)
5. improved slickness
6. easy to apply

Keong further shares “Flexibility means nothing if the vehicle can’t be delivered and it just sits there for 46 hours. That’s why we pushed the formula to the limits. Imagine being able to deliver the vehicle in just 2 hours after application of coating. Now, That’s Exciting.

Unlike the traditional wait of 4-8 hours, IGL Coatings has shortened that “no-wet” period to just 2 hours. Giving vehicles a shorter turn around time, without affecting the durability or effects of the ceramic coating.

With improved resistance to waterspotting, incredible hydrophobics, and simply amazing slickness, Elixir’s easy to use, 3 year, 1 layer coating will be the go-to for detailers worldwide. Ecocoat Elixir is available in the 50ml (Full Kit & accessories) and 100ml (Essentials).
