How Ceramic Coating Works
To understand how ceramic coating works, first, we need to know what exactly is ceramic coating. Ceramic coating is a liquid polymer coating that sticks to your car’s paint, making up a protective layer on your car, making it resistant to the external factors that are an obstacle for the retention of the glossiness of the vehicle. The coating even makes your vehicles scratch resistance.
Ceramic car coatings make it easier to clean your car as it builds an ultra hydrophobic coating on the car that resists water and dirt and doesn’t let these external factors stay on the surface.
The standard practice of coating your car is something that needs a lot of practice and an eye for detail. The applicator has to apply a polymer solution manually i.e. by hand. This part of the application can be a bit tricky as the solution is pretty sticky and needs to be applied in a very thin paint protection film. If the applied layer is too thick, the car paint can get ruined and the reversal of the whole process can cost you a fortune.
However, a nicely done ceramic coating that is usually done by trained and certified professionals with thorough knowledge, experience and practice can be a great way to ensure a lifetime of beautification of your car.
Benefits Of Ceramic Coating
A well done ceramic car coating has a lot of benefits. But it needs patience and experience. The tricky part of the application process is that the protective coating that is made from a polymer solution needs to be applied manually, by hand. The protective layer has to be very thin and smooth for the car to look great while being resistant to external stimuli like water, dirt and scratches etc.
Thus, if a coating has been applied well, the benefits that your car can get are;
Protection against UV rays: The harmful UV rays from the sun are one of the biggest factors that deteriorate the quality of your car surface, slowly eating away your cars glossy finish so that the car ends up looking pretty old and soggy. But with a properly done ceramic coating, you ensure paint protection to a level that your car looks new for a whole lifetime.
Protection against chemical stains: With the pollution rising around the world, the acidity of the environment has become a major concern for car owners as it leaves chemical stains on the car surface. But fortunately, it can be easily combated by the application of ceramic car coating on the vehicle to form a protective layer against the acidic components that are in the atmosphere due to pollution.
Easy Cleaning: Ceramic car coatings are also famous for making car surfaces ultra hydrophobic. Factors like humidity, dirt, etc, that annoyingly stick to the surface of cars become unimportant issues and cleaning the surface of the car also becomes easier than ever!
Impressive Gloss: Car owners generally love the glossy aesthetics of their cars. The glossiness is a testimony to the newness of the car. However environmental factors like weather, especially if it is as unreliable as it is in Melbourne, acidic components in the atmosphere and dirt along with other factors like scratches take the glossiness away and make the colour look faded too.
But with a ceramic coating on the vehicle, all these issues are eradicated and a gloss is retained for almost a lifetime.
