Read below for information on ceramic coatings.
What is a Ceramic Car Coating? One of the simplest ways to describe a ceramic coating is to think about your vehicles surface. Your vehicle has several layers of paint on it. A ceramic coating is a sacrificial layer of protection over your vehicles finish.
Utilising nanotechnology, ceramic coatings build a semi permanent bond to your vehicles clearcoat. This clear layer is naked to the eye, but don't let that fool you. This clear layer will not wash away from cleaning or rain, nor will it break down fast like traditional waxes or sealants. In fact they last years!
Water instantly repels away encapsulating dirt, making your vehicle easier to clean. This hydrophobic effect is known as the self cleaning effect. The hydrophobic water behaviour of ceramic coatings is the first benefit that draws attention to the end user. While the self cleaning benefit are nice, there are even better benefits of a Ceramic Coating.
Ceramic Coatings prevent oxidation, reduces risk of damage from bird droppings, and makes your vehicles surface less prone to scratching. The hardened structure left behind from a ceramic coating is 2 to 3 times harder than clear coat.
