Ceramic Coatings for Cars What Does It Do and is it Worth the Money.

Have you noticed swirl marks and stains on your exterior paint?

Do swirl marks, chips, and stains populate your vehicle’s exterior paint despite your best efforts at washing your car?

It’s so frustrating after spending hours washing and waxing your car, water spots, dirt, and grime cling to your paint the very next day after you wash and wax it.

What if I told you there was a product that could eliminate your car detailing frustration?

A product that protects your exterior paint from environmental hazards and makes washing your car easier.

That would be fantastic news. Right!

Drumroll, please!

Announcing Ceramic Coating (or Nano-Ceramic Coating.)

Here’s a video showing how amazing Ceramic Coating can be when applied to your car’s paint.

That video is quite convincing.

But before you make a buying decision, let’s go over the facts.

What is a Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic Coating is a liquid polymer such as Ceramic Pro installed by hand on the exterior of a vehicle. The Coating chemically bonds with the vehicle’s factory paint, creating a layer of protection.

However, bear in mind that Ceramic Coating is not a substitute for Paint Protection Film.

Paint protective film provides a comprehensive form of defense.

Another way of explaining what it is…

It’s equivalent to applying a premium wax to your car.

So, Ceramic Coating creates a permanent or semi-permanent bond to your vehicle’s exterior paint. It will not wash away or break down and does not require repeated application every few months like car wax.

What Does a Ceramic Coating Do?

  • Ceramic Coating adds additional protection to your car’s exterior paint.
  • It gives your paint a glossy shine and keeps it looking like new.
  • Ceramic Coating also makes your car easier to clean.

Protection from UV Damage and Oxidization

If you live in California, it’s impossible to avoid the sun.

Exposure to the elements, especially the sun’s rays, and your paint will oxidize, resulting in dulled and faded paint.

Applying Ceramic Coating protects your vehicle’s paint from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, thereby reducing the amount of oxidization.

Ceramic Coating is like a protective shield for your car’s paint.

Protection from Chemical Stains

It’s challenging for you to have your vehicle avoid any chemical staining from naturally acidic pollutants. It’s near impossible.

I’m sure you’ve heard of environmental contaminants. They’re everywhere.

Ceramic Coating can keep environmental pollutants from bonding to your vehicle’s paint.

Your paint will be more resistant to staining and etching if the contaminant hasn’t sat on your car’s paint in the sun for hours.

Enhanced Gloss

There’s no denying that the ceramic coating applied to this cars paint make it look AMAZING!

Just look at that gloss. Look at that reflection. It’s almost like a mirror.

Talk about adding depth and clarity to your car’s paint.

Ceramic Coating will also add value to your vehicle.

What Does a Ceramic Coating Not Do?

Let’s clear up the exaggeration about Ceramic Pro being scratch-resistant.

Ceramic Coating can repel certain minor scratches. (As you saw above in the video with dirt being thrown at the car), but a Ceramic coated vehicle will not be completely resistant to rock chips or parking lot scratches.

Ceramic Coating is good at what it can do, but it’s not a substitute for paint protection film if you are looking for protection from rock chips or severe scratches.

Additionally, improper car washing techniques or automated car washes will create swirl marks on your vehicle’s surface.

Eliminate the Risk of Water Spots

Whether it’s the rain or you park next to an irrigation system, minerals in the water will leave behind visible spots.

While it is true that water can repel from a hydrophobic surface (Ceramic-Coated surface), water droplets if not removed with a microfiber towel will bead and remain on your vehicle’s exterior paint, creating the possibility for water-spotting.

Eliminate the Need to Wash

A road is a dirty place.

If you drive your car, it will get dirty.

Even with a Ceramic Coating, and your desire to have a clean car, you will still need to wash your vehicle regularly to maintain its look.

But the benefit of Ceramic Coating means that cleaning your car will be easier.

Another plus is that having Ceramic Coating means no more waxing your car.

Applying Ceramic Coating doesn’t make your vehicle maintenance-free, but it does mean that less effort will get you better results.

So, What’s the Conclusion about Ceramic Coating?

Will your vehicle benefit from applying Ceramic Coatings? Absolutely!

Is Ceramic Coatings all your vehicle’s exterior paint needs for protection? It certainly helps, but there is an addition you can also apply that will give your vehicle more protection.

Remember Ceramic Coatings are not a substitute for the complete protection you will receive from adding a Paint Protection Film.

Many customers apply Ceramic Coating to achieve that glossy shine to their paint. Then they requested we install that added layer of protection by installing a paint protection film.
