Scratch Shield is a clearcoat that is more scratch resistant compared with conventional clearcoats, helping a vehicle maintain its new look for a longer period of time. The paint also repairs fine scratches, restoring a vehicle's surface close to its original state. Nissan will continue to expand the adoption of Scratch Shield globally.
After being scratched, a car surface painted with Scratch Shield will have five times less the number of scratches compared with a vehicle painted with a conventional clearcoat.
Scratch Shield repaires fine scratches, restoring painted surfaces close to their original state anywhere from one day to one week.
- The paint does not self-repair if scratches are deep enough to sever the bonds within the clearcoat or if the clearcoat has been peeled off.
- The amount of time required for self-repair depends on the surrounding temperature and the depth of the scratch. In some cases, restoration may take up to one week.
