What are Ceramic Coatings & the Benefits
If you are a fan of keeping your car’s exterior clean and shiny, then you have probably heard of a ceramic coating. We only ever use premium, professional products, which work as a protective layer for your car’s paint — like a car wax or sealant but designed to last longer.
As a liquid polymer, ceramic coatings bond to the paint and act as the first line of defence against scratches, dirt, and water. They typically have a resin or quartz base that uses nanotechnology to spread thinly across your car’s surface and fill in all the minuscule pores within the paint. Its liquid state evaporates quickly to leave a sheer outer layer.
Ceramic coatings can enhance the appearance of most cars. To achieve the gleaming look, however, the paint itself cannot be too thin and must be free of defects. Otherwise, the clear coat will lock in debris and other marring features. So preparation of the car and paintwork is critical and is actually the most time consuming part of the process.
Any Wax and sealants only last a few months at the most and will need doing on a more regular basis. While they offer a good level of protection to the elements, we will always advise to have a ceramic coating added on top of your vehicles maintenance to keep the body work of your vehicle in perfect working order, just you would service your car’s engine, your car’s interior and exterior should also receive the same level of care.
While a ceramic coating provides the longest lasting shine, it does require the most time to apply. The application process involves a thorough cleaning of the car’s surface of any dirt, debris or even swirl marks, and then an easy application of the ceramic coating. By using Ceramic Coating Products this is a modern and more up to date method of protection and protects your paintwork by blocking UV rays and slowing down Oxidation. While also preventing minor scratches from reaching the paintwork.
