The Essential Information
Is Ceramic Coating Right For You?
Filtering through the Ceramic Coating marketing malpractice that leaves clients confused, over-promised, and under-delivered.
Nano Ceramic Coatings are the latest in car care technology – taking aspects from space travel to cookware, and combining them into a protective coating for your vehicle. There are many facts, myths, and overstated features – let’s take a look!
Many advertisers out there claim that their coating is the “best”. Flashy cars, expensive video production, in-your-face ads, and… Hang on, did they just set that car on fire? In a world of deceptive and exaggerated marketing, it can be difficult to find the truth. Thankfully we care more about you and your satisfaction than just making a sale. In other words, every client’s experience is important to us!
Firstly, it will not prevent scratches or rock chips. Let’s just get that out of the way. Ceramic coatings act as a sacrificial layer between the environment and your vehicles’ surfaces. This protection is a barrier between things like bug splatter, bird droppings, acid rain, snow, salt, and similar contamination, as well as UV protection and especially ease of maintenance. To clarify, Ceramic Coatings make the surface “hydrophobic”, meaning repellant to liquids and contamination. This attribute makes the surface easier to clean, and truly keeps it looking great for longer! With this in mind, if you’re looking for a more physical protection for chips and scratches, Paint Protection Film is the product for you. If you want to keep your vehicle clean and shiny, ask us about Ceramic Coatings!
What is Ceramic Coating?
Simple & Scientific Explanation
A ceramic coating is most easily explained as a “wax that lasts years instead of weeks”. At the same time though, coatings are nothing like waxes! To explain, a ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that is applied to surfaces to enhance, protect, and maintain the appearance. Consequently, the surface tension is increased, which as a result creates a hydrophobic, or “liquid repellant” barrier that makes washing and cleaning much easier. In effect, contaminants and liquids tend to bounce off or not bond to the surface. A properly cared for and maintained ceramic coating can provide years of protection from environmental contaminants such as iron deposits, tar, bug splatter, bird droppings, UV rays, and more.
Bonding & Breaking Process
The before mentioned liquid polymers cross-link to form a “chain” and bond to the surface. This chain and bond is comparative to how Velcro works – one side is the loops (the surface) and one side is the hooks (the coating). When put together, they form a strong link. However, this link CAN be broken, much like Velcro. Pulling the two pieces apart (VIA abrasion) will damage or destroy the link, removing the coating. For this reason, it is important to properly care for and maintain your ceramic coated surface to ensure its durability and longevity.
How Is Ceramic Coating Applied?
It is important to realize that ceramic coating a vehicle is an incredibly tedious process and requires an immense amount of prep. Notably, perfecting and cleaning the surface as the coating requires a pristine finish, and will accentuate it! Below is a breakdown of the process and prep involved.
