Ceramic coating is a SiO2 (silicon dioxide) or SiC (silicon carbide) based semi-permanent protective clear coat that when applied, chemically bonds to several types of surfaces on your vehicle - the main characteristics being increased hardness, hydrophobic properties and extreme durability. Ceramic coating provides the utmost protection and gloss for your vehicle.
PROTECTION FROM UV DAMAGE / OXIDATION-- The sun's harmful UV rays cause paint oxidation, dulling and fading of your vehicle's paint over time. Ceramic coatings provide exceptional protection against UV rays, swirl marks and minor scratches.
EASE OF CLEANING-- Ceramic coatings have an impressive hydrophobic effect, causing water to bead up and roll off the surface. It also prevents most dirt and grime from bonding to your vehicle's paint, making it much easier to clean.
PROTECTION FROM CHEMICAL STAINS AND ETCHING-- Chemicals and minerals, bird droppings and acid rain all can cause imperfections on your vehicles finish that are very difficult to remove. Ceramic coatings can keep these contaminants from bonding to your vehicle's paint by creating a chemically resistant surface. This way, if your vehicle is affected by these elements they are much easier to remove.
ENHANCED GLOSS-- Ceramic coatings keep your paint looking new and beautiful. It gives a reflective, mirror-like quality, bringing clarity and depth to your paint.
DOES NOT ELIMINATE THE DANGER OF SCRATCHES, SWIRL MARKS, OR ROCK CHIPS-- Ceramic coatings are scratch resistant but not fully scratch proof. It is still extremely important to keep your vehicle clean to prevent scratching and swirl marks. Hand washing is always recommended because automated car washes can be harmful to the protection and can cause scratching and swirls
DOES NOT ELIMINATE WATER SPOTTING-- Because of the hydrophobic effect of ceramic coatings, your vehicle will not hold nearly as much water on its surface, creating LESS opportunity for water spotting
DOES NOT ELIMINATE THE NEED TO WASH-- Ceramic coatings do not make your vehicle fully maintenance free-you do have to keep your vehicle clean to prevent buildup and problems with excess wear. However, it is much easier to keep a well-maintained ceramic coated car looking beautiful and new
