03 November 2023

Malaysian manufacturing-tech company IGL Coatings successfully showcased its three latest innovative products at the SEMA Show 2023 and emerged as the winner of the SEMA Global Media Award.

Alongside the launch of the new products, IGL Coatings showcased their new line of Marine Solutions and Industrial Solutions Series, Aegis. IGL Aegis is a unique 2k anti-corrosion graphene reinforced coating that is unlike any other system in the industry. IGL Aegis provides ultimate protection against the elements, is clear, tintable and stronger.

Throughout the show, IGL Aegis received tremendous interest from major industry professionals in its protective abilities.

“We’re floored with the response we have been receiving for IGL Aegis! Probably because many are starting to realise the tremendous potential and abilities of IGL Aegis as the best available system and solution for anti-corrosion. The SEMA Global Media Award strengthens the appeal that Aegis has an international scale,” said Keong Chun Chieh, Founder and CEO of IGL Coatings.

Aegis continues to receive attention from mega-corporations around the world looking for anti-corrosion solutions that fulfil their strict requirements.

The SEMA Global Media Awards Program recognises companies that manufacture speciality equipment products and accessories that would have mass appeal to consumers internationally. The products are voted on by a prestigious group of international journalists who serve as judges.

“The SEMA Global Media Awards taps top international media experts to weigh in on which new products that are likely to succeed internationally,” shares Linda Spencer, SEMA Director of International and Government Relations. This year’s programme included 11 judges from seven countries. Each judge carefully reviews and evaluates nearly 2,000 product entries at the SEMA Show before selecting the products that they feel would resonate and appeal most to consumers internationally.

Green excitement at SEMA Show 2023

IGL Coatings launched Ecocoat Elixir, its three year, single-layer ceramic coating. Keong shared, “Elixir is our next step into our single-layer range, the first being Ecocoat EZ; launched in 2021.”

Elixir caters specifically to the needs of detailers, including mobile ones who require more flexible location options, thanks to its formulation for efficiency. Keong explained, “Elixir, at stable environments, can be applied both indoors and outdoors. Many detailers have wished for this and I am glad to see it finally materialise”.

The newly launched Elixir gives better flexibility in terms of locations and increased profitability for the IGL detailers.

Keong further shares “Flexibility means nothing if the vehicle can’t be delivered and it just sits there for 4–6 hours. That’s why we pushed the formula to the limits. Imagine being able to deliver the vehicle in just 2 hours after application of coating. Now, that’s exciting.”

Unlike the traditional wait of 4-8 hours, IGL Coatings has shortened that “no-wet” period to just two hours. Giving vehicles a shorter turn around time, without affecting the durability or effects of the ceramic coating.

With improved resistance to waterspotting, incredible hydrophobics, and simply amazing slickness, Elixir’s easy to use, 3 year, 1 layer coating will be the go-to for detailers worldwide. Ecocoat Elixir is available in the 50ml (Full Kit & accessories) and 100ml (Essentials).
