Everyone has a passion — something that pulls you in, consumes your thoughts and makes you come alive. For Paul Gibson, that passion has always been cars.

It’s a passion that has led to a lifelong career in motorsport, as an engineer, driver and racing team owner. But at the heart of it has always been one thing: the look — the appreciation of a car as an investment that should never look anything less than it’s best.

Paul’s obsession with keeping his cars at their best also became his biggest frustration. Because he was never quite satisfied. Product after product failed to meet expectation. The process of detailing was too time-consuming and the results underwhelming. Every few months, he’d find himself repeating the same painstaking process of cleaning, polishing, detailing and curing with different products, only to be let down. He knew there had to be a better way. A product that could be applied in less time, yet still withstand the rigours of the race track. So, he set about developing his own.

Using over five decades of experience in motorsport, Paul identified and sourced the most technologically advanced ingredients, testing combinations meticulously on Gibson Motorsport cars until results exceeded expectations. The outcome of years of research, development and testing is Gibson Shield — the most innovate collection of nanotechnology-based ceramic coatings on the market, designed to improve the look and extend the life of your car.

Our products are for enthusiasts, drivers, engineers and detailers. Created by someone who shares the same passion for cars that you do.

Our Core Values


The development of our products is focussed on delivering long-lasting premium protection against the elements. This is achieved with a highly hydrophobic, hardened ceramic layer that repels water and shields your car from UV damage, scratches and chemical etching.


We use the best researchers in ceramic coatings and source certified ingredients from the original source to create the most technologically advanced interior and exterior car care products.


We weren’t content with maintaining the look of a car, and we wanted to improve it. We use nano-based ceramics for their ability to bond with the vehicle’s paintwork, enhancing the gloss and preventing dirt penetration for an easy cleaning and a better finish for longer.


All of our ceramic coatings are racing industry standard. Each product has undergone rigorous testing on Gibson Motorsport cars by Paul Gibson himself, with approval granted only after it has proven itself to meet the stringent demands of a racing team.
