What Is Ceramic Coating?

To understand ceramic coatings, it’s helpful to first look at the most common paint-protection products. 
Wax is organic and the most affordable, available in various forms ranging from an old-school paste to a quick-and-easy spray. For decades, “waxing” a car has been synonymous with keeping it looking shiny and new.
Unfortunately, wax isn’t terribly durable and, therefore, should be applied multiple times per year. Some companies claim otherwise but environmental contaminants and even a harsh soap can easily break through that thin wax barrier. 
Sealants, on the other hand, are synthetic and developed to last several months. They are easily applied, though typically don’t offer the same deep shine one gets from a quality wax.

Both are outmatched by a ceramic coating. This silica-based liquid polymer is applied by hand and cures to form a protective layer that, when properly maintained, can be effective for several years.

Advantages of Ceramic Coating

That long-lasting protection is the main reason car owners choose a ceramic coating over the other options. Essentially a hard shell, a ceramic coating will prevent water stains, road grime, bird droppings, and other substances from reaching and harming the paint. With a quick rinse, they’ll simply slide right off.
And that brings us to an interesting word: hydrophobic. Typically, anything related to “phobic” has a negative connotation, but in this case it’s all positive. A ceramic coating will create a hydrophobic layer that essentially repels water, meaning mineral deposits and dirt have less opportunity to damage the paint surface.

Why Ceramic Coat your Vehicle?

If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to Paint Protection Films. This is it. Ceramic Coating can give your car a high gloss finish, achieving a showroom look after every wash. When doing ceramic coating, or looking for ceramic coating, it is important to Paint Correct a vehicle before applying the product. What this means is, Paint Correcting a vehicle requires the vehicle to have all oxidants, most scratches, and swirls removed. This will ensure that the Ceramic Coating will bond to your paint. Creating a smooth shell, that will prevent the vehicle from future scratches and swirls. Although, even after a car is treated in ceramic coating, a vehicle can still obtain scratches and swirls, but this is due to negligence when cleaning the vehicle or properly maintaining it. We always recommend that you have a dedicated detailer, that maintains your vehicle once we have applied ceramic coating.
