Ceramic Coating Paint protection Benefits
What exactly is a Ceramic Car Coating?
No matter the brand, most ceramic coatings such as Ceramic Pro, CQuartz, Gtechniq and Opti-Coat contain silicon dioxide which is more commonly known as silica. If you don’t know anything about silica, we have a little secret for you…it’s also found in Quartz and has a Mohs scale hardness rating of about 7 out of 10. Now that’s hard!
Ceramic coatings attach chemically to your clear-coat via a covalent bond which is the strongest type of bond in nature. This allows your coating to last for many years. Other common auto products, like waxes, don’t have the same bonding strength. Waxing requires constant re-application to maintain protection with less chemical resistance than ceramic coatings.
Do Ceramic Coatings help minimize swirl marks??
This is false.
If you put a key against a coating, it will leave a mark. It will, however, assist in resisting swirl-marks due to its protective abilities.
What do Ceramic Coatings do?
Acid rain, environmental contaminants and chemical fallouts have a corrosive effect on your paint and can easily leave stains. Coatings provide superior protection against staining and etching over traditional wax and sealants.
Since ceramic coatings stick to your paint via a covalent bond, they are extremely durable. Depending on the coating you choose, the average coating lifespan can be anywhere between 2-10 years (10 years if properly maintained). Comparably, polymer paint sealant can last from 6 to 9 months and waxes only last anywhere from 2 to 4 months.
Did you know
Ridiculous Gloss & Shine
Ceramic coatings create a hyper-reflective surface. This gives a wet look and a gloss that doesn’t fade after each wash. Coating shine expectancies are measured in years, versus waxes and sealants that only last months.
UV and Oxidation Protection
UV rays cause clear-coat oxidation and discoloration. This causes paint to fade over the years. Coatings provide substantial protection against UV rays, compared to waxes or sealants.
Maintaining your coating
Even with a coating, it is still important to remove bird drops and other corrosive contaminants as soon as possible. Ceramic coatings allow more time to remove contaminants before they start staining the clear-coat.
