When a Ceramic Coating is applied properly, it provides long lasting paint protection that benefits your vehicle in 4 ways.
A single layer of Ceramic Coating can last anywhere from one to seven years depending on the brand. High quality coatings can protect your paint for up to five years before needing replacement, and might even come with a warranty. Coatings can also be layered or stacked and provide protection the total length of the coatings applied. Wax and sealants only last up to months at the most. 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, removal of any previous wax or sealant, paint correction to remove swirl marks, and then the application of the coating itself
Ceramic coatings provide paint protection by acting as a shell against a variety of factors that damage your paint. the coatings hydrophobic properties do not allow contaminants to attach or embed themselves in the paint and cause etching. Some of the many elements and contaminants coatings protect your vehicles paint from are...
Since the ceramic coating is hydrophobic, the car’s surface will repel water, and bead instead of causing paint damage from water spots and accumulated moisture.
Some chemicals, like those found in bird droppings, generic cleaners, gasoline, brake fluid, shoe polishes, and shaving chemicals can be highly damaging to car paint. A ceramic coating takes the hit from these chemical products first — preventing the paint from fading or peeling off.
Ultraviolet (UV) rays can oxidize and fade car paint, or even contribute to rusting. A ceramic coating prevents the car from looking more aged than it is.
Scratches: Though often advertised as scratch proof, ceramic coatings are only scratch resistant. Which is still hugely effective against minor scratches from bushes, small brushes with bikes, or even people passing by. They won’t protect your exterior from rock chips at highway speed or car keying.
3. Your vehicle stays cleaner longer:
A ceramic coating causes debris, liquids, and chemicals to bounce off the exterior more easily instead of damaging it. The car stays much cleaner because dirt has a harder time sticking to the surface. This doesn’t mean your car never needs washing. You won’t have to wash your car as frequently, but roads still contain dust and grime that will build up over time. Additionally, a car wash will not require a ton of effort on your part, dirt will come off without much resistance.
4. You vehicle will stay looking new for the lifespan of the coating:
Their translucent, second-skin nature will protect a fresh paint job, paint correction, or a new car and keep it looking glossy. However, this sparkling appearance can only be achieved if the proper prep work is performed before the coating is applied. Faded paint, haze, or swirl marks will still be present if they were not taken care of before the ceramic application because they remain protected under the coating.
Coatings are by far one of the best investments you can make for your vehicle.
