A ceramic coating forms a layer of protection that protects your vehicle from the harmful effects of the environment such as tree sap, bird droppings and acid rain. A good quality ceramic coating will preserve your vehicle in pristine condition. However, the effective application of a ceramic coating plays a vital role in ensuring all the benefits for your car. Let’s get some more information about the application of ceramic coating from First Class Detailing in Palm Harbor, FL!
What Are The Benefits Of Ceramic Coatings?
Ceramic coatings produce a protective covering for the car’s paint with several advantageous properties. Let’s discuss the benefits of ceramic coatings.
The hydrophobic properties of ceramic coatings make them very water repellent. The amazing hydrophobic effect of the ceramic layer will cause water to bead up and roll off the surface, as well as most debris since neither can adhere to the paint. Any remaining grime, bird droppings, or contaminants on the vehicle may be cleaned with little effort. Instead of gathering on the surface, rain and water bead up and fall off the car. Snow, water spots, ice and mud do not stick to surfaces and your vehicle will become much easier to clean.
UV Damage, Oxidation, and Rust Protection
Over time, the paint on vehicles will begin to fade and become dull. This is due to the sun’s UV rays, which causes the car’s paint to oxidize. Applying a ceramic coating layer to your paint will significantly prevent oxidation. Due to paint fading, vehicles that are often exposed to the sun’s harmful rays seem to have a dull, faded and dated appearance. Ceramic coatings can lessen the amount of oxidation that occurs and improve the appearance of your vehicle.
The unique nano ceramic coating looks to preserve the surface of your car more effectively than any conventional paint job. Ceramic coatings have a long life span of several years to protect your vehicle from the elements.
How To Apply A Ceramic Coating On The Car’s Paint?
The ceramic coating application process consists of multiple stages that make the car’s surface shiny and protected. The steps of the process are as follows:
Using the two bucket method, wash and rinse your car to remove dirt and grime from the paint surface.
The surface has been cleansed of filth and grime. Now we must eliminate obstinate impurities using a clay bar or speed clay product. Break out a sizeable clay and knead it into a smooth, level working area.
Now that the surface has been thoroughly cleansed of dirt, filth, and pollutants, we can examine scuffs, swirls, and fading paint. We want to smooth the paint’s surface so that the ceramic coating may adhere to it and provide a glass like sheen.
Once the surface meets your approval and is as smooth as glass, we may now prepare it for the ceramic coating. Using alcohol and a clean microfiber towel, wipe each part to remove any polish, waxes, oils, or pollutants. This guarantees that the ceramic coating adheres without trouble to the surface.
Apply The Ceramic Coating
Ensure the panel is clean and cold to the touch. Working in tiny pieces, cover the surface with the ceramic coating. Using a gentle, clean microfiber cloth or applicator, evenly distribute the substance around the surface until it vanishes. Ten minutes or so are required for the ceramic coating to adhere to the surface.
What Is The Lifespan Of A Ceramic Coating?
Ceramic coatings may last anywhere between two and five years with adequate maintenance. Proper maintenance is required for a ceramic coating to survive for three to five years. Without proper care and maintenance, your ceramic coating’s lifespan will be significantly reduced.
