Before knowing how ceramic coating works, it is necessary to know what it is and how it can protect your car from the damages caused by the external environment.
Ceramic Coating Explained
First of all, you need to know what ceramic coating is. It is a polymer layer made of nanoparticles. Ceramic coating is also known as nano-coating because of the nanotechnology used in it. The primary element of this coating is a liquid polymer. The polymer comprises long chains of molecules that cross-link to form a hard, durable layer on the vehicle’s surface. The professionals apply the ceramic coating as a liquid. It is cured by using heat or UV light. The curing process makes the polymer cross-link with the vehicle’s surface to form a solid layer on the car’s surface.
At Auto Boss Vaughan, our team uses professional-grade ceramic coatings for the vehicles. These coatings do not need IR-curing lamps for curing. There is a two-stage curing process for coatings after they are applied:
- Stage 1: We recommend waiting 4 hours and not exposing your car to water. Exposing your vehicle to water within these hours can disrupt the coating’s curing process.
- Stage 2: Avoid washing your car for 4 days after applying the ceramic coating to your vehicle. Avoid exposing it to water, soaps or any other chemicals.
What Are the Ceramic Coating’s Benefits?
There are several amazing benefits of coatings. However, some of them are important enough to make you want to book the coating for your car right now:
Extra protection for the car’s clear coat
One of the important benefits of car nano-coatings is the ability to provide a high level of protection for the car’s clear coat. The hard, durable layer formed by the cured polymer resists scratches, stains, and other damages. It helps keep the car looking new longer. It also reduces the requirement for frequent car washing, and you will not need to wax your car. We at Auto Boss Vaughan suggest avoiding waxing the coated car.
Car Ceramic Coatings Repel Water
Car nano coatings also have hydrophobic properties. These features enable the surface to repel water, preventing water spots and stains on the car paint. This, in turn, makes the car easier to clean.
Prevent Car Paint from Fading
Additionally, nano coatings provide UV protection. It can preserve the car’s paint from fading or turning yellow due to continuous sunlight exposure. It is very important, especially for new vehicles.
If you purchased a vehicle in 2020 or after, we recommend installing nano-coating on your car because of the UV protection quality. Car manufacturers continue to reduce costs, and vehicles are being produced with less and less paint year after year.
What does this stand for for your car? If you do not protect these new cars with a thin paint layer, they will rust quickly along with damaging your car paint.
Get a better Appearance of Your Car
Another benefit of nano-coating is that it can improve the car’s appearance. The cured polymer’s high-gloss finish makes the car look vibrant and new.
It’s Easier to maintain
Additionally, the nano-coating creates a smooth, sleek surface that creates resistance to dirt and grime. It makes it easier to keep the car clean and maintained.
Is ceramic coating better than traditional waxing?
If you use a traditional carnauba wax on the surface with a ceramic coating, the wax protects all the heavy lifting. Ceramic coatings will protect your car better than traditional wax. If you are among people who yearn for the old days of waxing the vehicle, specific nano-coating toppers are applied to your ceramic-coated vehicle. These products combine with your nano-coating rather than working against it.
What Are The Best Nano Coating Toppers For Your Vehicle?
The best nano-coating topper for the vehicle is a SiO2 quartz spray sealant. It will improve your ceramic coating rather than covering it up.
If you want the best coating toppers, seek advice from your auto detailer. Auto Boss Vaughan experts will guide you about safe-to-use products for your car’s ceramic coating. We feel happy to answer any product query or give you suitable recommendations.
Applying Ceramic coating by yourself
You can apply a ceramic coating on both old and new vehicles, whether it is your personal car or business fleet. It is usually not a DIY project. However, you can apply it with enough patience and help. If you are new and applying it for the first time, we don’t recommend doing it yourself as you can damage your car’s clear coat, or bubbles can appear in the coating. It may not cure properly, leaving the surface appearance patchy. However, getting nano-coating with a professional car detailing partner like Auto Boss Vaughan helps you get the finest finishes. Leave your car or fleet in the Auto Boss’s garage and take it coated.
Get professional help
Professional nano-coating specialists are trained to make your car appear sleek and perfect. The finishes will be the finest without bubbles or damaging the car paint. A professionally installed ceramic coating creates a thin, hard layer of nanoparticles on the car’s surface. The layer is self-healing, minor scratch resistant, and repels water. It doesn’t allow water particles to seep through the car paint and start rusting.
The science behind the ceramic coating is using the polymer layer on the surface of the car’s clear coat. These nanoparticles create a smooth, sleek, shiny layer with hydrophobic properties. These qualities make this coating one of the best car protection solutions. The smooth layer prevents water from absorbing or standing on the car’s surface. It floods down immediately after being poured. Hence, no watermarks or stains will remain on the surface. It also makes washing, cleaning and maintaining your car easy. You won’t need frequent car wash to maintain its looks.
