FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
WHAT IS SSR MADE FROM?
SSR is a mixture of proprietary, patented chemical's and pigment mix. Learn more about our Patent.
WHAT IS THE AVERAGE REPAIR TIME?
Single scratches can be repaired between 30 seconds and 10 minutes. Hoods can be repaired in around 15 to 20 minutes, and a complete "walk-around" of a vehicle with scratches on every panel in around 30 minutes to 1 1/2 hours.
HOW LONG WILL THE REPAIRS LAST?
SSR is permanent, it will not fall out, wash out, or even power-wash out.
WILL IT REPAIR REALLY DEEP SCRATCHES?
SSR will put paint in the scratch. How good the repair is will have a number of dependencies, such as, if primer or metal is showing, or a scratch with severe width, SSR will not repair to perfection. That is considered a body shop required repair, however, SSR will give an 80% fill, seal and protect it while saving your deductible. In a nut shell, SSR will repair about 80% of what you come across. You can keep working on the same scratch and it does get better and better, I know because I've done it. Personally, and for purely monetary reasons, I will apply SSR 3 times to repair a scratch.
WHAT'S IT LIKE ON CHIPS?
When it comes to "totally peppered" hoods, SSR is totally unrivaled! The results can only be described as breathtaking. I've repaired many of otherwise unsalvageable hoods and SSR never fails to impress me! Every time! Okay, it won't repair large chips, this is still a body shop required repair. SSR can give an 80% fill, seal and protect it while saving your deductible. Remember, we are constantly working on a solution for deep scratch and large chip fill.
WHAT'S IT LIKE ON SILVER?
SSR is fine on silver. You certainly have to be pretty close with the color, but yes, SSR will repair silver, again depending on the width and depth of the damage.
WHY DO YOU USE BLACK PAINT ON A GREEN PANEL?
When using SSR, exact color match is not essential. It's all done by the method, selecting a color that is darker if the panel is dark or same as color if the panel is light. SSR black is probably the most versatile color we have; it can be used to repair any black, dark blue, dark gray, bronze and dark green, etc. Amazing isn't it?
CAN I SIMPLY BUY THE PAINT AND DO IT MYSELF?
No, the paint is just one part of the total system.
WHAT ARE MY OTHER OPTIONS?
There are other ways of covering and masking scratches and scuffs, but they cost more and take longer. With SSR there is very little that can go wrong--no possibility of overspray and very little chance you could break through the clear coat to the base coat.
