How does it work?
Hydrophobic coating also occurs in nature. Leaves of trees and plants repel water, causing drops to flow away. We call this the peeling effect.
We mimic this property with the Proteam Hydro Coating based on silicon dioxide. Surfaces treated with this coating are therefore highly water-repellent, less sensitive to pollution and therefore easy to keep clean.
By incorporating certain functional groups into the silicon dioxide, it is possible to chemically bind this substance to certain specific surfaces. Our coating is the first and only one specifically developed for bicycles.
The coating products based on silicon dioxide are highly hydrophobic. This water- repellent effect ensures that the contact surface between liquids and the surface is much smaller. As a result, water and dirt slide easily from the surface.
Silicon dioxide is an important component of glass, it is very hard, practically insoluble and resistant to many chemicals. The ultra-thin layer formed with our coatings is extremely hydrophobic, long-lasting and invisible. Coatings with SiO2 are also called “Liquid Glass” coatings: the surface is provided with a glass layer on a nanoscale.
“Every day I cycle to and from work on my Cube road bike, I do not have much time for the cosmetic maintenance, therefore I am very pleased with the Proteam coating, my racer stays clean much longer and is very easy to wash” Rene Bakkum, Castricum

How can we be of help?
Does the coating come with a guarantee/warranty?
If I bring the bike to you for the coating, how long do you need it for?
Will you coat the bike as is, or would you need to remove some parts? Wheels, crank, handlebar, etc.?
Do you have DIY Kits and how difficult is it to DIY?
My bike has been going on for 4 years, is it still appropriate to use this product?
Can you confirm that it is also suitable for matt carbon?
How many times can I treat a complete bicycle with 15 ml and how many times a year is this necessary?
How do I apply the coating?
I do not have a password to watch the instruction video:
Do I have to dry the coating with an infrared lamp?
Can I simply wash and rinse the bike with a high-pressure cleaner?
How long does the coating last?
Do I apply the coating on all surfaces?
