What goes into the making of a Permagard product and what differentiates it from other players in the premium exterior protection technology space?
Since 1997, we have continued our ongoing commitment to Reactive Polymer science, constantly testing and innovating the technology we employ to ensure it is of the highest standard. A Permagard protection treatment runs a lot deeper than just an impressive shine. Each product is scientifically backed and works at a molecular level, where the results speak volumes for themselves. Our high-performance, environmentally safe Reactive Polymer Technology has now been trusted to protect over $100 billion worth of aircraft, cars and yachts across the globe. Luxury brands such as Porsche and Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific, and the largest privately owned dealer groups, such as The Suttons Group, use Permagard exclusively for their factory-backed and statewide vehicle protection programs – you can’t refute scientific results.
Permagard’s solutions have the stamp of approval from the likes of Mercedes-Benz Australia, Porsche Australia, Boeing and Airbus, among others.

Permagard is big on sustainability. Could you take us through the company’s efforts at creating green awareness and mitigating the impact of climate change?
On the occasion of World Environment Day, on June 5, Permagard India collaborated with Global Shapers Community — Nagpur for planting 1,000 trees in the Panna Tiger Reserve and 1,000 trees in Viluppuram, Tamil Nadu, on September 18, 2021. This initiative is special for us because we have pledged to plant a tree for every car that will be serviced at Permagard Car Care Showrooms across the entire country. With this plantation, we have accomplished our first phase and we are now devoted to planting 8,000 more trees.
