A ceramic coating is a liquid polymer applied by hand to the exterior of a vehicle. The coating chemically bonds with the vehicle's original paint and creates a layer of protection.
What does a ceramic coating do?
In short, a ceramic coating adds additional protection to your car's exterior and helps keep it looks like-new with comparatively insignificant maintenance. The coating achieves this result by making your vehicle more resilient and easier to clean. Following are the main benefits:
Protection from UV Damage/Oxidization
If a vehicle 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 to your car 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. The result is that your vehicle will be more resistant to staining and etching, where the contaminant is provided to be removed in a timely manner.
Ease of Cleaning
One of the most significant features of 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 drop 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 can be removed with less effort.
If you want the paint to pop with gloss, the ceramic coating is a solution. 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.
