So you carefully wash it on a regular basis and you apply a new coat of wax every few months. But despite your efforts, swirl marks and stains start to populate on your vehicle. What’s more, dirt and grime cling to your car’s paint, making it difficult to wash.
Ceramic Coatings exist to change this narrative.
WHAT IS A CERAMIC COATING?
A Ceramic Coating is a liquid polymer that is applied by hand to a vehicle’s exterior. After application, the coating creates a permanent or semi-permanent bond with the vehicle’s factory paint, creating a layer of protection.
Ceramic Coatings are different from traditional waxes or sealants in that the protection does not wash away or break down and does not require repeated application every few months.
What are the Benefits of a Ceramic Coating?
In short, a Ceramic Coating adds additional protection to your car’s exterior and helps keep it looking like-new with comparatively minimal maintenance. The coating achieves this result by making your vehicle more resilient and easier to clean. Here are the main benefits.
What are the Limitations of a Ceramic Coating?
For the reasons listed above, a Ceramic Coating does preserve your vehicle’s exterior and reduce ongoing maintenance needs. Therefore, if you choose to have a Ceramic Coating applied, you will be adding value to your vehicle.
However, despite the claims of some manufacturers and detailers, a Ceramic Coating is not a miracle, super-cure product that will solve any and every problem for your car. Thus, it is important for you to know what a Ceramic Coating does not do.
Eliminate the risk of water-spotting
A normal drop of water contains a certain amount of dirt or minerals. When water evaporates on your vehicle’s surface, the minerals are left behind, creating visible spots. A Ceramic Coating does not prevent water-spotting.
