Gemballa is offering world’s first diamond coating for vehicles

Article by Anita Panait, on May 28, 2012

Metal- and glass-based paints have been used as coatings for interior and exterior of vehicles. But to use diamonds, one of the most precious gems that have long been considered as “a girl’s best friend,” as a coating for cars? That may seem unlikely until auto tuner Gemballa recently developed a special coating made of diamonds.

The world’s first diamond coating for interior and exterior of vehicles is only available exclusively at Gemballa. According to Gemball chief executive Andreas Schwarz, the company uses genuine diamonds as its key ingredient for the coats, not metal pigments, glass fragments, or crystals. For the diamonds to be applied like paint for vehicle finish, they need to be reduced to applicable dimensions.

Being one of the hardest fossil stones, reducing diamonds into sizeable pieces without losing their sparkle and brilliance posed a quite a near-impossible challenge for Gemballa.  The auto tuner ground the diamonds into the required small sizes, and this effectively increased the sparkle of these precious gems, as it actually increased the number of facets showing. 

Gemballa’s process allows greater number of diamonds to be coated in a given area, thus vehicles finished with this exclusive coating exhibit unrivaled sparkle. This new and one-of-a-kind perfectly fits the Gemballa portfolio, which is grounded on a philosophy that focuses only on the best. Gemballa’s new diamond coating is the perfect overlay for the carbon-fibre bodywork of the company’s ultra-exclusive cars.
