WHAT IS A CERAMIC COATING?
A Ceramic Coating is a liquid polymer that is applied by hand to the exterior of a vehicle. The coating makes a chemical bond along with the factory paint of the vehicle. This creates a solid layer of protection. A Ceramic Coating does not make a proper for a Paint Protection Film. A Paint Protection Film provides a much better defense comprehensively. Rather, it is a premium wax alternative. A Ceramic Coating builds up for a semi-permanent to permanent bond along with the vehicle’s paint, so that it does not wash away or break down and does not require repeated application every few months.
WHAT DOES A CERAMIC COATING DO?
To be precise, the main function of a Ceramic Coating is adding an additional layer of protection to the exterior of your car. It keeps your car looking like brand new while you have to do 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
As vehicles are often exposed to sunlight the paints naturally begin to get oxidized which means a faded and dull exterior. A layer of Ceramic Coating gives a vehicle’s paint protection from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, vastly reducing the amount of oxidization.
PROTECTION FROM CHEMICAL STAINS AND ETCHING
There are also many natural acidic contaminants that could pose a danger to your car’s exterior. Since it creates a chemically resistant surface, a Ceramic Coating also ensures some contaminants cannot be bonding to your vehicle’s paint. The end result is that your vehicle will be much more staining and etching resistant, if the contaminant is removed in a timely manner.
EASE OF CLEANING
The most striking feature of a Ceramic Coating is that by nature it is hydrophobic, meaning that it repels water. For a vehicle to have hydrophobic Ceramic Coating it can be detected by water beading on the vehicle’s surface and it will slide off easier too. This means that mud and grime will have a more difficult time bonding to your vehicle’s paint, and when you wash your car, contaminants can be removed with less effort.
The glossy popping finish of a car comes from adding a layer of Ceramic Coating. A good Ceramic Coating not only does enhancing of reflection of your car’s paint and clear coat, it also adds to the depth and clarity of your paint.
WHAT DOES A CERAMIC COATING NOT DO?
For all these reasons and more, a Ceramic Coating is the best way to preserve the future maintenance needs of your car as well as the snappy exterior. So in case you choose to have a Ceramic Coating application, it will increase the value of your vehicle. However, even though Ceramic Coating comes highly recommended by some manufacturers and detailers, it’s not a miraculous, super-cure product that will solve any and every problem for your car. So it is also very important to understand what a Ceramic Coating does not do.
ELIMINATE THE DANGER OF SCRATCHES, SWIRL MARKS, OR ROCK CHIPS
The scratch-resistant powers of Ceramic Coating often does not meet expectations and is highly exaggerated. Even though a few tiny scratches can be deflected by a Ceramic Coating, a coated vehicle will not be completely resistant to the risk of rock chips or parking lot scratches. It cannot be stressed enough that if improper car washing techniques are used or even automated car washes are implemented frequently it will still create swirl marks on your vehicle’s surface. Ceramic Coating is not a proper substitute for protection against more serious scratch or chip protection (such as Paint Protection Film, also known as Clear Bra). What’s more important to remember is that it does not completely eliminate the need for properly washing your car to avoid swirl marks.
ELIMINATE THE RISK OF WATER SPOTTING
A tiny drop of water has a certain amount of minerals or dirt. As water evaporates on your vehicle’s surface, the minerals are left behind, creating visible spots. Detailers and consumers mostly work under the assumption that the hydrophobic nature of a Ceramic Coating will completely eliminate water spotting, since water slides of the coated surface. It is true that some water repels from the hydrophobic surface, but other water droplets will bead and remain on the vehicle, creating the opportunity for water-spotting.
ELIMINATE THE NEED TO WASH
Take into notice that previously we have mentioned a Ceramic Coating keeps your car looking brand new with minimal maintenance to be done, but not no maintenance. Let’s face it, the road is a dirty place. When you are driving, your car will definitely get dirty, even if you have a Ceramic Coating on. You still need to wash your car regularly in order to maintain its look. The biggest benefit of a Ceramic Coating is that it makes the process of cleaning your car easier. Moreover, a Ceramic Coating of your car means that you don’t have to wax your vehicle anymore in every few months, eliminating a significant part of maintaining your car’s exterior. To summarize, a Ceramic Coating will not make your vehicle completely maintenance-free, but what it will do is make you work much less to achieve and maintain a much better result.
