A ceramic coating is a specialized coating that will add an additional barrier for your vehicle against the dangers of environmental forces. With a ceramic coating, you are choosing to protect your vehicle against dangers like tree sap, bugs, UV rays, acid rains, pollution, and many other contaminants that Mother Nature can hurl your way. As the sun beats down, these contaminants are baked onto the exterior of your vehicle. Over time, this can cause costly damages. Having us professionally install a ceramic coating on your vehicle will help protect against these dangers. Once the damage begins, reversing these damages can lead to thousands of dollars in repairs. A professionally installed ceramic coating will help prevent these damages from occurring. While no paint protection film (ppf) will protect against every type of damage, the protection provided by our ceramic coating far supersedes the competitors.
Not only is our ceramic coating one of THE best coatings in the industry, but its self-cleaning functions are highly sought after by many clients. As water hits your car, after we have installed your ceramic coating, the water will bead up and fall off. This works with dust particles as well. A ceramic coating will provide a glass-like barrier against environmental dangers. Without a ceramic coating, these dust particles on your vehicle can actually cause micro-scratches on your car’s clear coat. As the wind from your driving pushes these dust particles against your vehicle, the friction is what causes these small scratches.
Ceramic coatings are great for custom paint on a vehicle. The level of protection provided by a ceramic coating is outstanding. Matching customized designs can be challenging to correct should small scratches and damages occur. For the cars going to a car show, one minor flaw can determine the first place or sometimes, the last place. Where do you want to be? While having a ceramic coating will not guarantee that you will place first at a car show, but it will help ensure that your car is always shining, sleek, and freshly painted.
The coating will protect the vehicle’s exterior and interior from deteriorating for a lifetime. The resale market value will therefore be substantially higher! Ceramic coating pays for itself in the end.
LOOK NEW ALL THE TIME
Once the coating is applied you will see a mirror effect, glossiness and color depth, incomparable to anything else! With proper maintenance your car’s finish will shine for many years to come.
The slick coated surface won’t allow dirt, brake dust and tar to stick to your paint, wheels or glass. This makes washing your vehicle less labor intensive and less frequent. Waxing is now obsolete.
Maintaining Your Protection
Your car washing techniques will need to be modified to accommodate your new ceramic coating. A ceramic coating can take about 2 to 3 weeks to fully cure. Certain factors, such as humidity and temperature can affect this cure time. Proper care during this 2 to 3-week curing process is crucial to the longevity of your ceramic coating.
During the 2-3 week curing period be sure to avoid:
* Parking under trees – especially if the leaves are falling. You don’t want tree sap on a fresh ceramic coating.
* Allowing bird droppings, tree sap, bug residue, or pollen to sit on the car and cook in the hot sun. Bird droppings and deceased bugs contain uric acid. This acid can cause damage to a freshly coated vehicle.
* Washing or scraping the paint. Your Ceramic Coating must be given the time to cure properly. Once your Ceramic Coating is fully cured, please refer to your routine maintenance instructions.
In the first 2 weeks, should you notice water spots, bird droppings, tree sap, and other contaminants of the sort, immediately remove them according to our after-care instructions. Use caution, especially in the first 2 weeks. The coating is still soft. We are available for any questions that you may have.
It is recommended that you wash your car on a bi-weekly basis to avoid the buildup of excessive contaminants. Do not go through the automatic car washes, as the force from the brushes can damage a ceramic coating during the curing process. Additionally, many of the automatic car washes have a high PH level. By following the after instructions for your Ceramic Coating, your Ceramic coating will cure properly and you will get the full protection of a Ceramic coating for your vehicle.
After washing, do not use wax on your new Ceramic Coating. Because of the unique chemical composition of a Ceramic coating, the wax cannot and will not bond to the coating. Ceramic Care is recommended for maintenance and as an aftercare product. We are always available to you for routine maintenance. Just give us a call and we will help you beautifully maintain your new Ceramic coating Coating. When your Ceramic coating Installer and you talk about your Ceramic Coating, they will go over all of the details with you. They will be sure to answer any of your questions. The more information that you have for your Ceramic Coating, the longer it will work for your vehicle.
Annual Inspections are recommended to ensure the coating is properly maintained and that routine care for the vehicle is properly executed. These annual inspections should only be carried out by an approved, professional within a month of the anniversary date of the last service. This is to guarantee peak performance. Although a Ceramic Coating is durable and long-lasting, annual inspections ensure maximum gloss and premium protection from your Ceramic coating. Failure to complete these annual inspections could result in the failure of your Ceramic coating.
