WHAT IS CERAMIC COATING?
Ceramic coating is a type of protective finish that is applied to various surfaces such as automotive, architectural, and industrial surfaces. It is made up of a liquid polymer that forms a ceramic-like layer on the surface when cured. This layer provides a high level of protection against elements such as UV rays, oxidation, corrosion, and abrasion. Ceramic coatings are known for their durability and long-lasting protection, as well as their ability to enhance the appearance of the surface they are applied to. They are also resistant to most chemicals and are easy to clean.
BENEFITS CERAMIC COATING
Protection: Ceramic coating provides a protective layer that protects the surface of the car from environmental elements such as UV rays, acid rain, bird droppings, and tree sap.
Gloss: Ceramic coating provides a glossy finish to the car that enhances its appearance and makes it look brand new.
Durability: Ceramic coating is extremely durable and can last for several years, providing long-lasting protection and gloss.
Easy Maintenance: Ceramic coating makes it easier to clean the car, as dirt, grime, and other substances can be easily removed with just a simple wash.
Resale Value: Cars with ceramic coating often have a higher resale value as they are in better condition and have a higher level of protection.
Hydrophobic Properties: Ceramic coating has hydrophobic properties, which means that it repels water, making it easier to clean and keeping the car looking new.
Increased Paint Hardness: Ceramic coating can increase the hardness of the paint, making it more resistant to scratches, chips, and other damage.
Preparation: The surface to be coated must be cleaned thoroughly to remove any dirt, grime, or oil. This ensures that the ceramic coating adheres properly.
Application: A primer may be applied to the surface to improve adhesion. The ceramic coating is then applied using a spray gun or a microfiber applicator. The coating is applied in thin, even layers. Each layer must be allowed to dry completely before the next layer is applied.
Curing: Once the final layer of ceramic coating is applied, the surface must be left to cure. This process typically takes anywhere from 12-24 hours.
Inspection: Once the surface has cured, the ceramic coating should be inspected for any defects. If any are found, they should be corrected before the surface is used.
Maintenance: Ceramic coatings are designed to last for several years, but proper maintenance is necessary to extend their lifespan. This includes regular washing, avoiding contact with harsh chemicals, and avoiding exposing the surface to high temperatures.
