ZAINO Surface Preparation
Proper surface preparation is the key to ultimate results. People often
complain of the “multiple steps” and the “complicated process” that’s
involved in creating the show car finish. What people fail to realize, is
that the critical process of surface preparation is the most significant
factor leading to the ultimate show car finish. The results attained are
directly proportionate to the effort expended during surface preparation; it
doesn’t matter if you’re using Zaino, or some paste wax sold at the dollar
Very much like painting a wall in your home, surface preparation is the key.
Satisfactory results certainly can be obtained by merely slapping a coat of
fresh paint over a wall. But we’d certainly have a better looking, longer
lasting, and more durable paint job if we wipe down the dust and spider
webs, clean off Ruff’s dirty paw prints, spackle the nail holes, prime over
Junior’s Crayola and tomato sauce hand prints, and just generally clean and
prepare the surface.
Of course, there are varying degrees of attention to detail. We have a
friend that paints homes professionally. In addition to the normal clean up
and prep work, his procedure for evaluating a wall’s readiness for final
paint is a bit more detailed. He uses a droplight at night, in complete
darkness, to cast shadows on the walls to find imperfections that are not
visible during the day. Any imperfections are noted, repaired, and the
process repeated to insure the wall is free from any blemishes. Of course,
our friend paint’s very high end homes, so his attention to detail, going
above and beyond what’s normal, is somewhat expected.
The point is that surface preparation is the key. It’s up to you, not us,
but you, on how much you decide to prepare your surface. Some may chose to
skip the entire surface preparation process altogether and receive results
they are very happy with. Other more meticulous customers will engage in a
lengthy process of cleaning, repairing, and then re-evaluating the surface
prior to moving on to APPLICATION for phenomenal results. We find that most
customers choose a higher middle ground.
Zaino Surface Preparation Products
||Z-18 ClayBar –
Whether old or new, claying a vehicles surface is very
important to its overall health and appearance. Particularly important
on brand new cars, claying removes surface and embedded contaminants
that are harmful to the life of the finish. These spots, stains, or
residues seriously detract from the depth of the paint and the
performance of any applied sealant or wax product. If your car isn’t
baby skin glass smooth to the touch, you could benefit from claying the
surface. Conventional soaps and polishes simply can’t clean the surface
like claying can. – 2 - 3oz. bars, $16.95 – use
||Z-PC Paint Cleaner Swirl Remover
Polish – Z-PC is a great cleaner for
preparation of the Zaino system - by hand or using a buffer. Z-PC by
hand will remove minor scratches, swirls, and other blemishes. When used
by rotary machine in a professional environment, Z-PC has enough
polishing ability to remove moderate swirls and scratches, yet finishes
down flawless and so glossy that multiple step surface correction is not
required. Since Z-PC contains no oils or fillers, you can apply your
favorite protectant as soon as you wipe away the Z-PC residue. For the
owner/enthusiast using a random orbital buffer, Z-PC with a polishing
pad will safely and effectively correct minor surface imperfections.
– 8 fl oz., $12.95 – 12-16 applications
||Z-AIO All-in-one Cleaner Polish &
Protectant – For a one stop product, Z-AIO is
an excellent solution to simplify surface maintenance. Used by hand or
with a random orbital buffer, Z-AIO can either be used by itself, or as
an excellent foundation to the Zaino protectant and sealant system.
Z-AIO’s emulsifying cleaning action and very fine abrasives are
perfectly safe for all vehicle types... auto, marine, air, etc.
– 16 fl oz., $26.95 – 24-32 applications
ZAINO Surface Protection
Here at Zaino, we are very well aware that many of our
customers tend to be, to put it lightly, extreme, when it comes to car care.
While this is not a requirement for usage of Zaino products, our product
performance typically feeds the desire for extremity. The extent to which
you use Zaino, follow our instructions, or make use of any tips, is always
up to you!
It’s important to know a little more about the Zaino philosophy when it
comes to all our products, but very specifically our Zaino protectants and
sealants. You will achieve the highest level of personal satisfaction by
understanding just a few simple points.
The most important, the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT piece of information is
that A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. Our business philosophy is not to dilute
or cheapen the product, making you believe that you are buying more product
than what you actually are. Nearly every Zaino product is extremely
concentrated and proper use of our products requires sparing product usage.
This results in much greater bang for your buck as an added bonus. A
LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY.
Just like surface preparation, an analysis of your goals and your direct
experience with our products will create recipes or menus for product
selection and usage. Each individual has unique tastes and requirements for
surface care satisfaction. For some tastes, a dash of salt is sufficient and
preferred. For others, salt, sugar, and pepper. For some, LOTS of salt. The
point is merely that you may use the product as your goals require.
A unique ability for Zaino sealants is that layering and repetitive
applications yields incredible results. While the majority of our customers
apply only one or two layers, there are some enthusiastic customers that
apply dozens and dozens of layers. To be fair, our product performance fuels
a very passionate customer experience, and quite a few customers simply
can’t get enough. Using a single or every product in our system, or
layering one or one hundred applications is a CHOICE, not a requirement.
It’s up to YOU. It simply does not take hours of work and lots of steps
to see huge benefits from Zaino products.
Zaino Surface Protectant Products
||Z-2 PRO Clear Coat Finish Protectant –
Clearly, Z-2 PRO is our flagship product. The
extraordinary gloss, shine, depth, clarity, and reflectivity make Z-2
PRO the highest rated and most respected product in the industry. Z-2
PRO is so easy and applies so thin that an 8 ounce bottle can yield up
to 24 applications of product! Durability, looks, ease of use, and cost
per application make Z-2 PRO the pure winner.
– 8 fl oz., $14.95 – 12-16 applications
||Z-3 Single Stage Finish Protectant –
Z-3 for non-clear coated regular paint offers
the wettest looking and deepest finish you can imagine, making it look
like you have a clear coat! With the same synthetic technology as Z-2,
Z-3 is formulated to meet the needs of standard paints, which tend to
oxidize, shrink and lose its resiliency faster. It also includes a
custom blend of emulsifiers that gently condition and maintain the
paint, and does so without a lot of rubbing.
– 8 fl oz., $14.95 – 12-16 applications
||Z-5 PRO Swirl & Fine Scratch
Protectant – Darker colored vehicles are prone
by the easily visible surface marring or fine scratches from regular
maintenance. Z-5 PRO and its micro filling technology gradually reduce
the appearance of these surface imperfections without using any
abrasives. Without using cheap oils or cheap fillers that merely last
until your next car wash, Z-5 PRO protects and lasts like no other
product. – 8 fl oz., $16.95 – 12-16
||ZFX Flash Cure Accelerator Additive –
Quite simply, there isn’t anything like ZFX in
the industry. With any surface wax or sealant, there are proper dry time
and cure times. The product simply isn’t ready for successive
applications of product until the wax or sealant is dry and cured. ZFX
accelerates both. This is critical for those that choose to rapidly
layer applications of Z-2 PRO, Z-3, or Z-5 PRO. ZFX usage will increase
the hardness and durability of the Zaino system as a whole. – 2 ml.,
$19.95 – enough for up to 32 oz.
||Z-CS Clear Seal –
Z-CS is an advanced total synthetic polymer protectant
that is simply wiped on, and you’re done. Z-CS does not require buffing
or residue removal. Z-CS is wiped on and simply allowed to disappear
into the paint, leaving behind a super gloss. You can use Z-CS on paint,
glass, wheels, plastic, or trim to lock in the protection, durability,
slickness, and gloss that Zaino is most popular for.

soil, use Z-6 frequently. – 16 fl oz., $9.95 – 20-30 applications

separate your car from the rest, use Z-8 after washes or on a clean
surface prior to an event and you’ll be blown away. Z-8 is so special
that it must be used sparingly. The original concentration is so high
that it simply doesn’t take much at all to bring the “bling”. – 16 fl
oz., $19.95 – 20-30 applications
