Nissan/Infiniti came up with self healing paint in 2009, does Q50 has it or not? Any one knows?

I remember someone mentioning in the troll thread started by InfinitiOwner that they tried self-healing paint, it didn't work as expected, and abandoned it.


I found the thread. Afrosheen said "This is gone. Infiniti tried it, and it failed, so they pulled it."

I have it on my 09, IMO it's great but I have heard that there has been issues related to repainting of self healing clear coat.

Yeah that's what my salesman told me. It only self heals for 2 years. It's also very hard to repaint. It basically has tiny capsules of clear coat epoxy in a matrix. When you physically damage this layer, the capsules break and seal the damage. It's sorta like when you get scratched and the cells heal over.

Cool idea but not practical for the real world and not widespread enough for your average paint shop to deal with.

scratch shield paint

Check this post from June 7 under General Discussions. The third image, "Standard Features", last item under "Exterior" says "Scratch Shield Paint". This feature is missing from everything else I have seen so perhaps it was included in error on that particular item.

I hope it doesn't come with it. It's definitely harder to polish and a pain to get repaint when the time comes.
