What is Ceramic Coating?
As cars evolve, so too do the ways we maintain and protect them. Long gone are the days of hand waxing paint every other wash, ceramic coatings revolutionize the way to protect and seal paint. Ceramic coatings form high-solid inorganic layer. Like glass, they are silica (SiO2) based, which reflects into the end-use properties, such as chemical inertness and hardness (9H hardness rating). Due to the high inorganic content and the lack of self-leveling ability, ceramic coating can only be carefully applied by hand in a controlled environment, so it is not the ideal DIY project. After a 24-hour curing period, the coating transforms into a super-slick inorganic shell that seals the paint and dramatically enhances its chemical and physical properties.
What Are the Benefits of Ceramic Coating?
Ceramic coating not only gives automotive paint a candy-like look but also changes the chemistry and morphology of the paint surface. One of the main benefits is the hydrophobic properties that help prevent dirt and chemicals etching into the paint and eases the maintenance process. Simply pressure wash the surface and watch the paint shine back to life!
Our professional ceramic coatings are chemically stable and do not break down under harsh conditions. The hard shell the coating builds aids resistance to scratching (due to slickness) and protects the paint against UV rays and oxidation.
Is Ceramic Coating Permanent?
Ceramic coatings are permanent, but it is better to regard them as semi-permanent. Compared to an automotive finish – e.g. clear coat, base coat, primer – they create a much thinner film on top of the original finish, which in turn makes it relatively easier to remove a ceramic coating by mechanical means. This is one of the reasons why we perform paint correction before installing a ceramic coating. A professional paint correction not only maximizes the lifetime performance of the coating but also lowers the possibility of removing the ceramic coating by wet sanding or heavy compounding.
