Ceramic Coatings: Everything you need to know

Didn’t you hear? Wax is dead and getting a ceramic coating in ct has never been easier! We only want to offer the latest and greatest technologies and protection for your vehicle, you won’t find any more of your grandpa’s wax in our shop. The latest advances in the automotive paint protection industry help keep your vehicle cleaner, protect it against harmful environmental debris, UV, repel water and enhance depth of paint and gloss.

Ceramic coatings are a liquid polymer that is applied by hand to a vehicle’s exterior. After application, the coating creates a permanent bond with the vehicle’s factory paint, creating a layer of protection. Ceramic & graphene 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.

Keeps your car clean longer and easier

Coatings create a permanent hydrophobic surface over your vehicle’s factory clear coat, which is just as thin as a single sheet of paper or less. This hydrophobic surface makes it more difficult for dirt, mud, and grime to bond with your car’s paint. As a result, your car stays cleaner for a longer amount of time.

The hydrophobic surface created by a ceramic coating means that when you need to wash, it will be much easier. Water will repel and lift dust or dirt and sheet off your paint.

Protection from harsh chemical staining and etching

Ceramic coatings are about 99 times thicker than a traditional wax. It provides substantially more protection than a normal sealant. The chemically resistant surface helps mitigate stains and etching caused by environmental contaminants like bird-droppings and bugs.

After applying a ceramic coating, it is still important to remove naturally acidic contaminants from your paint as quickly as possible, however, your layer of ceramic coating will minimize damage and help protect the factory paint and clear coat underneath.

Protects from UV damage

Another potential danger for your paint is oxidation caused by UV exposure. This results in a faded look to your paint. All coatings are UV resistant, your paint will be protected from fading.

Enhances gloss

The ultra smooth surface that a coatings create enhances the reflective properties of your car’s paint. The result is that your car will really pop with gloss and shine. Especially after a fresh wash, your car’s paint will have that beautiful just-been-waxed kind of look, without having to spend time applying wax!

A long-term solution

The best part is coatings do all of this with just one application! Unlike a traditional wax or sealant, a coating does not wash away or break down and does not require repeated application every few months. After one application, your vehicle experiences all of the above benefits for up to 5 years with a ceramic coating while cutting edge graphene coatings offer a minimum durability of 5 years.

All coatings create a permanent bond with a vehicle’s factory paint, it is necessary to fully decontaminate and correct all painted surfaces before application. A physical vehicle inspection is mandatory before we can determine the scope and pricing of the work to be performed.
