WHAT IS CERAMIC COATING?
A Ceramic Coating is a liquid polymer that is applied by hand to vehicles paint (glass, wheel, or leather) from a new vehicle or a vehicle that has been prepped & corrected. The coating chemically bonds to the surface creating a semi-permanent layer of protection. As you read below you will understand how this layer of protection adds a deep gloss, helps to repel chemically staining contaminants and dirt, resists swirls, protects from UV degradation, and the ease of cleaning because of it. Ceramic Coating is with no doubt the pinnacle in paint protection.
Enhanced, deep Gloss & smoothness
If you want your paint to pop with gloss, you will want to add a Ceramic Coating. 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. The process with Ceramic Coating begins with the condition of the paint. It is important to make sure paint is cleaned, prepped and corrected because coating will magnify those imperfections and seal it in permanently. Coating will not hide swirls or scratches!
Hydrophobic Properties and the ease of Cleaning (not a way to eliminate the need to wash)
One of the most significant features of a Ceramic Coating is that it is hydrophobic, which is a fancy way of saying it repels water. A fascinating property of the coating in that it has a self-cleaning characteristic. Dirt for example, would rather stick to the water droplets vs. the coated surfaces. This along with the Hydrophobic properties causes the dirt to get trapped in the water droplets and slides off easier since there is less friction. Because mud and grime have a harder time bonding to the surface when it’s time for your vehicles maintenance wash contaminants can be removed with less effort.
Nature Elements/ contaminant repellency
Your vehicle is constantly under attack from various threats we can not control. By creating a chemically resistant surface, Ceramic Coating can prevent chemical staining from naturally acidic contaminants not giving it a chance to bond to the surface. So along with its hydrophobic property’s elements such as water marks, bug guts, bird droppings, tree sap, 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.
Guard from UV Degradation
If a vehicle is 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.
A Ceramic Coating creates a semi-permanent bond with a vehicle’s paint. This means it dose not wash away or breakdown and does not require repeated application every few months. Outlasting any wax, paint sealants or sprays. Here at ShineAddictz Detailing we offer 1.5-year coating, 3-year coating & 5-year coating. View our Coating prices.
Swirl/ Scratch resistance
Ceramic Coatings have a level of hardness resulting in the level of scratch resistance. Small scratches can be repelled by a coated vehicle however will not be completely resistant to the risk of rock chips or deep scratches. Furthermore, improper car washing techniques or automated car washes will still create swirl marks on your vehicle’s surface. It is important to know that a Ceramic Coating is not a substitute for more serious scratch or chip protection, nor does it eliminate the need to wash your car in a proper manner to avoid swirl marks.
