Paint Protection is the term used to describe the application of a sacrificial layer to a vehicle’s exterior so as to offer a safeguard from environmental contamination, scratches and swirls, oxidisation, UV damage and chemical etching (bird/bat poo etc). In addition to its protective properties, coatings by Shoreline Auto & Marine offer a car’s paintwork an insane level of mirror-like gloss that lasts for years on end even in the hot Australian sun.

A properly treated vehicle exhibits a high degree of self-cleaning abilities. Contaminants such as rain water, road grime, industrial fallout and dirt are much less likely to adhere to the surface of your vehicle, resulting in effortless washing and cleaning. Coatings are only to be applied by a highly trained professional. It takes a minimum of 4 hours to effectively and thoroughly prepare a vehicle for application of a paint protection coating. Without proper paintwork decontamination and polishing, the lifespan of the coating is greatly reduced. Once the coating is applied, it requires 12-24 hrs of curing time. During this time, the car cannot get wet, otherwise the coating will not achieve maximum hardness.

Crystal Serum is the market-leading composite ceramic coating and is by far the best paint protection available for your vehicle.

Unlike car dealership paint protection products which don’t last, Crystal Serum cures and bonds to the surface of your pride and joy, creating a thick glass layer which exhibits extreme gloss, water beading and chemical/swirl resistance.

Crystal Serum may only be installed by an accredited and highly trained Gtechniq Detailer, which means that your car is in safe hands.

Shoreline Auto and Marine spend hours and often multiple days polishing and preparing each vehicle for Crystal Serum installation so as to achieve flawless, showroom results.

Paint protection is serious business! And if you don’t get it right it can result in heartache and costly repairs.

Crystal Serum safeguards your vehicle’s exterior with a 9H sacrificial glass layer, offering 24/7 protection from our harsh Aussie climate.


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 whilst 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. For the definitive hydrophobic finish it can be over coated with Gtechniq EXO or C2.


Crystal Serum is a professional only product and can only be applied by an official Gtechniq Accredited Detailer. Please visit the “Find a Detailer” link at the top of this page to find your nearest Gtechniq Accredited Detailer.
