A Ceramic Coating is a liquid polymer that is applied by hand to a vehicle’s exterior. Ceramic Coating creates a permanent or semi-permanent bond with a vehicle’s paint, meaning that it does not wash away or break down and does not require repeated application every few months. The coating chemically bonds with the vehicle’s factory paint, creating a layer of protection. In short, a Ceramic Coating adds additional protection to your car’s exterior and helps keep it looking like-new with comparatively minimal maintenance. The coating achieves this result by making your vehicle more resilient and easier to clean. Here are the main benefits:
PROTECTION FROM UV DAMAGE / OXIDIZATION
Another potential danger for your paint is oxidation caused by UV exposure. This results in a faded look to your paint. A Ceramic Coating is UV resistant, meaning that your paint will be protected from fading.
PROTECTION FROM CHEMICAL STAINS AND ETCHING
A Ceramic Coating is about 100 times thicker than a traditional wax. That means it provides substantially more protection than a normal sealant. The chemically resistant surface helps mitigate stains and etching caused by environmental contaminants like bird-droppings or bug-splatter. After applying a Ceramic Coating, it is still important to remove naturally acidic contaminants from your paint as quickly as possible. However, your layer of Ceramic Coating will minimize damage and help protect the factory paint and clear coat underneath.
EASE OF CLEANING
This hydrophobic surface makes it more difficult for dirt, mud, and grime to bond with your car’s paint. As a result, The hydrophobic surface created by a Ceramic Coating also means that when the time does come for a wash, your car will be easier to clean. Water will pick up dust or dirt and sheet off your paint.
The ultra smooth surface that a Ceramic Coating creates enhances the reflective properties of your car’s paint. The result is that your car will really pop with gloss and shine. Especially after a fresh wash, your car’s paint will have that beautiful just-been-waxed kind of look, without having to spend time applying wax!
