Ceramic coatings, also known as glass coatings or nano coatings, have been all the rage in the detailing world for the past few years but there are still a lot of people who don't really know what they are or what benefits they provide. If you're one of those people, this article is for you! In this post, we'll give you a brief overview of ceramic coatings, explain how they work, and list some of the benefits that make them so popular. By the end of this post, you'll be an expert on all things ceramic coating!
What is a Ceramic Coating?
A ceramic coating is a liquid silica-based protective product that bonds to the paintwork and creates a sacrificial layer. This layer protects your paint from damage caused by UV rays, bird droppings, tree sap, and other environmental contaminants.
How Does a Ceramic Coating Work?
A ceramic coating works by creating a chemical bond with the paint. This bond is much stronger than a traditional wax or sealant. Once the coating has cured, it forms a hard candy-like barrier that protects your paint from damage. This layer creates a hydrophobic surface allowing water to roll right off.
Ceramic coatings can last for years if properly maintained. However, we recommend a yearly coating maintenance detail to decontaminate the surface and refresh the coating.
Benefits of a Ceramic Coating
There are many benefits to using a ceramic coating on your car's paint:
-It makes washing your car easier because contaminants will not bond to the paint as easily
-It protects your paint from UV damage
-It makes your car's paint look brighter and more vibrant
-It adds depth and gloss to your car's paint
-It increases the resale value of your car
-It can be applied to other surfaces on your car such as glass and wheels, trim and interior components.
A ceramic coating is an investment that will pay off in the long run. If you take care of it properly, it will protect your paint and make washing your car easier. It's the perfect solution for anyone who wants to keep their car looking its best! Thanks for reading and we hope this post was helpful.
