Ceramic Coating: Understanding What It Is & What It Does

So many people have heard of ceramic coating, but not all of them really understand what it is, what it looks like, and what it does to your car. Before now, it used to be that car wax (a natural or synthetic product that is designed to provide a thin layer of protection to the body parts of a vehicle, and enhance paint depth and shine) and sealant (synthetic products that serve to protect the exterior and paint of a vehicle from the harsh effects of environmental elements like UV Rays, excessive heat, and acid rain) were the only products available when it comes to protecting your cars paint from contamination and other paint defects. In as much as these products serve the purpose they were designed for, they don't last a long time.

Ceramic coating on the other hand, is a silica-based liquid polymer that is applied to the exterior of a vehicle to protect it from external paint damage. Unlike wax and sealants that only last for few months, ceramic coating forms a strong protective layer that can last for several years when properly maintained. It is this long-lasting protection that makes car owners prefer ceramic coating over other alternatives. The fact that it prevents water stains, road grime, bird droppings, and other substances from reaching and harming the paint makes it one of the best protective car product in the market. In addition, ceramic coatings also creates a hydrophobic layer that essentially repels water, meaning mineral deposits and dirt have less opportunity to damage the paint surface.

Now that you know what ceramic coating is and what it does, it is of utmost importance for you to be aware of the fact that ceramic coating isn't bulletproof. Ceramic coating despite its beautiful properties won't prevent things like stones chipping your paint, dents and deep scratches. So don't ever think that installing one on your vehicle would create this magic shield of protection that prevents anything from harming your paint; it does have its limitations.

Having explained what ceramic coating is, what it does, and wouldn't do, I believe you now have the right information needed to help you make an informed decision when it comes to having one installed on your vehicle. Ceramic coating is a great product that makes your car looks beautiful while preventing your paint from things that could easily harm it.
