CERAMIC AND GLASS COATING PRODUCT INFORMATION
Two of the most commonly used car coatings are glass coating and ceramic car coatings. Glass coating is not actually made of glass, neither does ceramic coating contain ceramics. The names are given simply to emphasize the durability of these coatings. Both are based on nanotechnology.
Ceramic Coating is a protective liquid polymer product that is applied to the exterior of a vehicle. This coating , generally speaking , is liquid made up of ceramic Nano particles that are suspended in a clear resin that when applied, hardens into a virtually impermeable surface that is chemically bonded to the vehicle it is applied to.
The easiest way is to understand Ceramics Coatings are to think of them as a second layer of skin, or a sacrificial layer of protection over your car’s clear coat.
They utilize nanotechnology, which are essentially tiny particles that form a very fine, thin layer completely invisible to the eye. Because these particles are so small, when applied to a surface, they seal all the pores making the surface hydrophobic (water-repellent), but also resistant to UV, scratches, chemicals, extreme heat and even anti-graffiti. This layer is completely transparent.
The ceramic coating forms a semi-permanent bond with a vehicle’s surface, resulting in a ‘sacrificial’ layer that will not wash away under cleaning or rain, or break down over a short period of time. In fact, usually, it lasts years.
They repel dirt and water like nothing else, which makes them easier to clean. Their hardness helps to prevent swirl marks and marring from washing.
An important feature of a Ceramic Coating is that it is hydrophobic. This basically means that water will be repelled instantaneously. When your car is ceramic coated, the incredible hydrophobic effect of the coating will cause water to bead up and roll of the surface along with most dirt, grime, or mud (as it has all been unable to bond to your vehicles paint).
Protection from UV Damage / Oxidization / Rust
Vehicles often exposed to the sun will start seeing the paint fade and look dull. This is caused by the sun’s ultraviolet rays, which causes oxidation to the car’s paint. By adding a layer of Ceramic Coating, you can dramatically reduce the oxidation.
Ceramic coatings or nano coatings, works much harder at protecting the surface of your vehicle than an ordinary paint job. The new coating bonds with the molecular structure of your car’s paint and can’t be dislodged by vibrations or external force, meaning it lasts years not months. As mentioned earlier in the article, think of it as an added layer of skin on top of your paint.
WHY CERAMIC COAT YOUR CAR?
A Ceramic Coating basically provides a super strong, protective surface to the car’s paintwork and body that can block and resist all manner of foreign matter and prevent them from causing damage to the cars paint. This damage can range from accidental scratches to mud, dirt and other contaminants that are an inescapable part of driving on the road. The ceramic paint coating on the car ensures that the original coating of the car is encased in a protective layer/skin that can withstand a great deal of damage without showing any ill-effects on the body of the car.
COST – CHEAPER THAN PREMIUM WAXES / SEALANTS IN THE LONG RUN
Only the Best
Ceramic Paint Coatings may seem more expensive option than a wax, but if you think about the longevity of the protection, it will work out cheaper in the long run. Typically the protection Car waxes provide can last from 1-6 months, whereas ceramic coatings can last years which will reduce the amount of money you will need to spend on expensive waxes that couldn’t possibly offer the same protection levels as ceramic coatings.
Glass coatings consist of particles of silicon dioxide within the hard resin that works to repel contamination and increase shine. It leaves a wet look that is highly desirable. This coating is self cleaning and also delays the buildup of grime and the elements in between cleans.
