Ceramic Coatings FAQs

What you need to know about Ceramic Coatings

What is Ceramic Coating for Cars?

To understand ceramic coatings, let’s first look at the most common types of paint-protection products.

Wax is organic and the most affordable that ranges from paste to quick shine sprays. Wax has been known for decades to keep your car looking shiny and new, however, wax isn’t that durable of a product. Therefore, it must be applied multiple times a year.

Sealants, however, are synthetic and designed to last several months. Car paint sealants are easily applied, unfortunately they won’t provide that deep shine like a quality wax provides.

Both wax and sealants are outmatched by a ceramic coating. Ceramic coatings are a silica-based liquid polymer that’s applied by hand and cures to form a protective layer on your vehicle. A ceramic coating that’s properly maintained can be effective and protect your vehicle while providing an unmatched shine for several years.

Advantages of Ceramic Coating for Cars?

With ceramic coatings you create a hydrophobic layer. This layer will repel water and keep mineral deposits and dirt from potentially damaging the car’s paint surface. Due to this effect, ceramic coatings are able to preserve your car’s paint job and keep it looking good longer.

The main reason that car owners choose a ceramic coating over the other options is for its lasting protection. A ceramic coating is basically a hard shell for your car that protects against road grime, bird droppings, fading, rust, oxidation, hard water deposits, industrial fallout and more. A simple rinse is all that’s necessary to have the contaminants simply slide right off and keep them from harming the paint.

Why You Should Use Ceramic Coating ?

With wax, you can spend all day for results that are dull in comparison to ceramic coatings. Let’s face the facts, a wax polish cannot prevent oxidation, fading, or stains from collecting on your car over time. Additionally, this process must be repeated every two or three months and oftentimes can leave behind residue and stains on your car’s surface.

Many professionals and car enthusiasts have turned to ceramic coatings as a replacement for car wax. On average a ceramic coating has a lifespan ranging anywhere from six months to three years depending on the quality of the product.
