Icon Rocklear + PPF = Maximum Protection and Gloss

Icon Rocklear is 100% compatible with Paint Protection Film (PPF).

Unlike ceramic or graphene coatings, Icon Rocklear uniquely allows for PPF to be installed on top, creating an unbeatable protective duo. This combination not only significantly enhances your vehicle’s gloss and aesthetic appeal but also ensures you never lose your investment in Icon Rocklear.

The high-gloss finish of Icon Rocklear beneath the PPF amplifies the shine, taking it to new heights of brilliance, and boosting the vehicle’s resale value.

Understanding Icon Rocklear: Clearing Up Common Questions

Is Icon Rocklear just another ceramic coating?

No, it’s the evolution of car protection. Engineered for today’s challenges, it outperforms ceramic in every way.

Ceramic coatings were developed in the early 2000s and have pretty much remained the same since. Relying on mostly water beading and easier to clean vehicles. Icon Rocklear was originally engineered in 2016 (in Alberta) and has been advanced several times with the most recent formula updated in 2023. Icon Rocklear is a corrective, protective, and transparent coating for automotive, marine, aviation, trucking, and agriculture use. It combines the best of PPF, clear-coats and ceramic coating all in one.

It is significantly thicker, stronger, and glossier than ceramic or graphene coatings. And it’s renewable – where ceramics/graphene are not renewable. Ceramics/graphene coatings need to be removed/replaced if the coating gets damaged.

We also offer a 20 year guarantee on a single layer of Icon, and lifetime guarantee on 2+ layers. Either way you also get lifetime warranty on the workmanship. Ceramic and graphene coatings only come with a 8-10 year warranty max and require expensive annual recoatings.

What if the coating gets damaged? Is it renewable or does it need to be removed and replaced?

The difference between Rocklear and ceramic coating is that ceramic coating is not renewable – it needs to be removed and reinstalled, which makes it more expensive for you.

Icon Rocklear on the other hand, is fully renewable. Meaning – if the coating gets damaged, we can simply reapply another layer of Icon Rocklear and you’re good to go! No polishing, grinding of clear coat, or any other expensive work required.

How come nobody else is offering this in Calgary?

We are the first officially certified dealer that can sell and install Icon Rocklear in Calgary and surrounding areas. The licensing process is a long and comprehensive procedure, where only the best installers make it. And being the best in Calgary… we’re the only ones that have made it.

How do I know this product works as claimed?

We’re so confident in this product that we give a 100% scratch test guarantee. Come and test the resilience of Icon Rocklear for yourself. Our showroom features a painted hood, inviting you to see firsthand how it resists and recovers from scratches, setting a new standard in coating technology. You can take out your keys and try to scratch it. If you manage to scratch the paint on the Icon Rocklear coated part, we’ll coat your vehicle with Icon Rocklear… free of charge!

How is Icon Rocklear better than other paint protection options?

Most people assume Icon Rocklear falls in one of three categories: Ceramic Coatings, PPF, or wipe-on clearcoats.

Icon Rocklear is in none of those categories. It’s in its own category set aside, by itself, standalone, leading the pack. If all three of those products got together and formulated a child with the best qualities from each, Icon Rocklear would have been born.

Is Icon Rocklear a wipe-on clear coat?

There’s zero clear coat, silicon, polymers, or teflon in Icon Rocklear. With wipe-on clear coats, the adhesion is mechanical, meaning you have to sand down the vehicle before applying it. There’s minimal impact or scratch resistance with wipe-on clear coats. You can’t polish them either, otherwise they crack and peel, because they’re rigid. Some wipe-on clear coats are just diluted clear coats. If you dent your car, it will crack the wipe-on clear coat. Wipe-on clear coats are not detailing products – they’re restoration products.

Icon Rocklear is the world’s only detailing product that is scratch resistant, impact resistant, can be polished, and is flexible – meaning it won’t crack if you polish it or dent it.

The simplest Litmus test is to see if you can find even one of these wipe-on clear coat products going on a brand new or high end vehicle (Rolls Royce, Lamborghini, Ferrari, etc) straight from the dealership. You simply won’t – because they’re meant for used car lots to make older vehicles look brand new. The downside with wipe-on clear coats is you only start to see the gloss fading and cracking after about 6 months or more.

How does Icon Rocklear compare to PPF?

To protect your entire vehicle in PPF, you’re looking at approximately $5,000 – $8,000, depending on the size of the vehicle, the type of film you choose, and the complexity of the install. PPF fails within 5-10 years, leading to cracking, peeling, fading, chipping, and dulled paint. If it gets damaged, it needs to be removed and replaced.

A single layer of Icon Rocklear on your entire vehicle starts at just $1997 – $2497, which comes with our 20 year warranty. 2 or 3 layers can range around $2991 – $3991, with a lifetime warranty. With Icon Rocklear, your vehicle stays glossy, hydrophobic, and looking like glass for years and decades to come. If your Icon Rocklear coating gets damaged, it only needs a simple reapplication in most cases and you’re good to go – no expensive removals, replacements, or grinding down of your precious clearcoat.

How does Icon Rocklear compare to REVIVIFY?

Revivify is still a ceramic coating, meaning it’s focus is on beading water. Icon Rocklear protects against scratches, rock chips, paint peeling, and has more shine than any ceramic – not even a comparison. Revivify is a good ceramic coating regardless, but Icon Rocklear is not a ceramic coating. Once it hardens it becomes an actual “scratch-proof” protective barrier for your paint.

Comparing Revivify to Icon Rocklear is like comparing the difference in performance between a Prius and a Ferrari.

How does Icon Rocklear compare to Ceramic Coatings?

Icon Rocklear is 63 microns (2.5mils) when applied, however ceramic coating is only 1-3 microns thick.

Ceramic coating only has protective properties against UV and environmental factors, not physical damage such as scratches, chips, etc.

Icon Rocklear protects your paint from UV & environmental factors, as well as scratches, chips, scuffs, swirls, paint fade and more. It even has paint corrective capabilities, meaning it can help eliminate paint fade, swirls and defects. What makes Icon Rocklear different is that you can repair scratches, swirls, bird droppings, etc with just a little heat or by reapplying another layer of Icon Rocklear.

You cannot do any of that with ceramic. Ceramic coating would need to be removed, corrected, and reapplied (expensive).

How long does Icon Rocklear last?

Icon Rocklear lasts a minimum of 15 years for automotive use. However at Tap And Shine, you get a 20 year warranty on a single layer, lifetime warranty on 2+ layers, and either way you also get a lifetime warranty on the workmanship.

Will I need to reapply or replace it frequently?

Nope. Once your vehicle is coated with Icon Rocklear, you will have zero annual maintenance (ceramic / graphene coatings require annual recoating appointments).

Zero maintenance. No weekly washes. No yearly toppers. Nothing. This isn’t a ceramic or graphene coating. Let us install it once, and you’re set for life.

Can you install PPF or vinyl wrap on top of Icon Rocklear?

Absolutely – this is another key difference between Icon Rocklear and ceramic or graphene coatings. The fact that you can even install PPF and vinyl wrap on top of Icon Rocklear makes it extremely versatile – things you can never do with ceramic or graphene coatings. So you never lose your installation investment.

How can I trust this product when I’ve never heard of it before? Will there be warranty issues?

Icon Rocklear is widely popular in Canada, USA and other countries like Dubai. As the first installers in Calgary to be professionally trained and certified with Icon Rocklear, we wanted to make this protective coating widely accessible. Icon Rocklear has zero complaints, failures, or warranty claims since it’s creation in 2016, and has been vigorously lab-tested. It is the strongest coating by far, with the highest level of protection and shine. If you haven’t seen it for yourself in person please do so and make your own judgment.
