CERAMIC COATINGS: What they are and the different types


Ceramic coatings have grown in popularity over the last decade and are a great way to protect your vehicle's paint. A ceramic coating is a liquid made of Silicon Dioxide (SiO2) that is applied to a vehicles surface to create a protective layer. This new layer bonds with the surface to create a hard and durable surface that protects against scratches, dirt, and other contaminants.

Ceramic coatings offer several benefits over traditional wax or sealant products. An important benefit is their extreme durability. Our Ceramic coatings last for several years, instead of weeks/months like typical wax or sealant. This eliminates the constant need to reapply a protective layer after the previous one wears off.

Another benefit of ceramic coatings is their resistance to scratches. Ceramic coatings are much harder than traditional wax or sealants, resulting in better protection against scratching (especially when washing the vehicle)and other minor damage. It's important to note, ceramic coatings will not make your vehicle immune from heavy damage like rock chips, door dings, etc. the extra layer of protection coatings offer is especially important for cars that are regularly exposed to harsh weather conditions or heavy use.

Ceramic coatings are also resistant to UV radiation thats given off by the sun. This means they can help protect a vehicles's paint from fading or discoloration due to rays. This is especially important for cars that are regularly parked outside, as exposure to the sun can cause significant damage to the paint over time.

Another benefit of ceramic coatings is their unmatched hydrophobic properties. This means that they repel water and other liquids, which helps prevent water spots and other types of damage that can occur when water is left to dry on the surface of a car. This can be especially important for cars that are regularly exposed to rain or other types of moisture. Last but not least, ceramic coatings make your vehicle much easier to clean. Because they repel water and other liquids, dirt and other contaminants are less likely to stick to the surface of the vehicle. This allows you you to cut down the amount of time it takes to wash your vehicle.

Overall, ceramic coatings offer a range of benefits for those looking to protect their cars or other surfaces. They provide a durable and long-lasting barrier that can help protect against scratches, UV radiation, and other types of damage. Additionally, they are hydrophobic and easy to clean, which helps keep your car looking clean and glossy for longer periods of time. While ceramic coatings may be more expensive than traditional a wax or sealant, their many benefits make them a worthwhile investment for those looking to provide their vehicles with the best forms of protection.
