Ceramic Coating

WHAT IS A CERAMIC COATING?

True ceramic coating is a long-term nanoscopic exterior automotive paint treatment and protectant that is applied in a liquid form and cures to form a hard layer on top of the paint. Essentially, it's the candy shell that protects the paint's delicious chocolate center.

WHAT IS A CERAMIC COATING MADE WITH?

Ceramic coating is typically composed of silicon dioxide (silica, Si02), which is sourced from natural materials such as quartz and sand. Some types and brands also use titanium dioxide (titania, Ti02) as an additional hardening agent. When applied to a car's paint, the two create a chemical bond with hydrophobic, aka water-repellent, properties.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A CERAMIC COATING?

Ceramic coating protects a car's paint from blemishes and damage while keeping it cleaner for longer. After application, it also makes follow-up car washes easier and shields the car from harmful UV rays. Ceramic coating creates intense water beading and dirt run-off and gives a car an extremely glossy shine.

PROTECTION FROM UV DAMAGE AND OXIDATION

If a vehicle is often exposed to the sun, its paint will begin to oxidize, resulting in dulled and faded paint. A layer of Ceramic Coating protects a vehicle's paint from the sun's ultraviolet rays, thereby reducing the amount of oxidization.

PROTECTION FROM CHEMICAL STAINS AND ETCHING

Another danger for your car's paint is chemical staining from naturally acidic contaminants. By creating a chemically resistant surface, a ceramic coating can keep some contaminants from bonding to your vehicle's paint. Your vehicle will be more resistant to staining and etching, provided the contaminant is removed in a timely manner.

EASIER TO CLEAN

One of the most significant features of a Ceramic Coating is that it is hydrophobic, which is a fancy way of saying it repels water. When a vehicle has a hydrophobic ceramic coating, water will bead on the surface and slide off more easily. 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 are removed with less effort.

GLOSS ENHANCEMENT

If you want your paint to pop with gloss, you will want to add a ceramic coating. A good ceramic coating enhances the reflective properties of your car's paint and clear coat, adding to the depth and clarity of your paint.
