The Expert in Automotive Ceramic Coatings
Ceramic Coatings are the latest evolution in automotive surface protection. These ceramic coatings are made from materials such as Silicon Dioxide, Silicon Nitride, Silicon Carbide, Graphene Oxide, and other Nano Ceramic Ingredients.
Ceramic Coatings are far more durable than the polymers found in traditional sealants and waxes, offering protection measured in years, rather than weeks or months. Ceramic coatings have been developed to form a Semi-Permanent Bond with your vehicle's clear coat at a molecular level, which creates a barrier between your vehicle and the environment. In addition to forming a very strong bond with the clear coat finish, a coating is generally much thicker than a wax or sealant, creating a sacrificial layer that can absorb damage and better protect the paint underneath.
What are the benefits of a Ceramic Coating?
Let's face it, every time you drive your car, its finish is bombarded with harsh contaminants that can cause damage, and over time will reduce the gloss and clarity of the surfaces. To simplify it, a Ceramic Coating adds additional protection to your car's surfaces and keeps it looking like-new with comparatively minimal maintenance. Ceramic Coatings provide this by making the vehicle more resilient and easier to clean.
If you're tired of waxing your car, and want to keep your vehicle looking better with less effort, these coatings are the solution!
The Hydrophobic surface created by the ceramic coating makes it more difficult for dirt & grime to stick to your car's paintwork. This Hydrophobic surface also means dirt, bugs, and contaminants will wash off much easier!
Protection From Chemical Etching
Ceramic Coatings are a harder more durable protection than traditional waxes & sealants. This means it provides substantially more protection. The chemically resistant surface helps mitigate stains and etchings caused by environmental contaminants.
Protection From uv damage
Without proper protection, your vehicle's paintwork can fade and oxidize from UV exposure. Ceramic Coatings are UV resistant, meaning they will protect your paint from fading.
Since Ceramic Coatings offer a thicker layer of protection, it significantly increases the depth and gloss of your paintwork. Your car will keep that "new car" shine for many many years!
What are the limitations of a Ceramic Coating?
A Ceramic Coating does preserve the "New Car" shine of your vehicle's paintwork and offers many great benefits as you maintain your vehicle over the years. However, it is important to know, despite what some manufacturers and detailers may say, a Ceramic Coating is not a "one and done" solution or a miracle product protecting your car from EVERYTHING! It is important to know what a Ceramic Coating does not do...
ELIMINATE the need to wash your car by hand
Ceramic Coatings help keep your car looking like-new with comparatively minimal maintenance in relation to other protection options. However, this does not mean it requires NO maintenance.
Every time you drive your vehicle, it is bombarded with dirt, dust, road grime, rocks, bugs, and other contaminants. If you are driving your car, it will get dirty. You still need to wash your car regularly to maintain its "New Car" finish. The benefit of a Ceramic Coating is that the maintenance is much easier, and quicker. You will no longer need to srub hard baked-on contaminants, and no longer need to clay bar, polish, and wax your vehicle regularly.
ELIMINATE scratches, chips, and fine swirls
The Scratch Resistance of Ceramic Coatings is often blown out of proportion by Manufacturers and Detailers. Often shown by hitting a Ceramic Coated Vehicle with a lighter, or brushing up against something plastic. What this is actually showing you is the easy cleaning characteristics of the coating. These testing measures are showing how plastic transfer from the lighter or plastic object easily wipes away. However, if you were to inspect closely with a light source you will see fine scratches left behind.
However, due to the Hardness of Ceramic Coatings, some small abrasions such as fine swirl marks that can happen over time from proper washing and drying techniques will be avoided. A Ceramic Coating is not a Scratch/Swirl Solution. Ceramic Coatings also do not offer any form of impact or rock chip protection. This is the job of Paint Protection Film (Clear Bra), which offers a MUCH thicker, impact-resistant solution for Rock Chips, Scratches, and Swirl Marks.
ELIMINATE the risk of Water Spotting
Living in Florida especially, we have hard water in comparison to the rest of the United States. Combined with the extreme heat and flash thunderstorms/afternoon showers. A drop of water contains a small number of minerals, after rain or rinse with hose water the water will evaporate. However, the minerals in the water are left behind, usually made up of Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, etc. These minerals are often acidic, and when left to bake in the sun can cause water spots.
Ceramic Coatings do NOT eliminate this risk, however, they do help. With no protection, these minerals will begin to etch your vehicle's paintwork within hours. When a Professional Grade Ceramic Coating is present, you have a longer buffer time before this begins to occur, giving you time to remove these mineral deposits with your next wash. We do not recommend letting Water Spots from hard water sit on your paintwork for more than 7 days, especially if kept outside.
ELIMINATE the risk of Bird Poo and Love Bug Etchings
Similar to the risk of Water Spotting. Bird Droppings and Love Bugs present an ever more dangerous problem for your vehicles finish. Bird Poo and Bug Etchings contain some extremely harsh acidic solutions. Combined with our extreme heat, the Bird Poo and Bug Splatter can begin to etch your vehicle's paintwork within hours.
Ceramic Coatings do NOT eliminate this risk, however, they do provide a level of protection and security. When a Professional Grade Ceramic Coating is present, you have a longer buffer time before this begins to occur, giving you time to remove these harsh solutions with your next wash. We do not recommend letting Bird Poo, or Bug Splatter sit on your paintwork for more than 7 days, especially if kept outside.
