How Does a Ceramic Coating Help in Preserving the Original Color of Your Car’s Paint? 

If your car is coated with a ceramic coating, the contaminants that would normally stick to the paint and cause water spots, bird droppings, road grime and other damage will just bead up on the surface and slide off after a quick rinse. This will keep your car looking newer for a much longer period of time and save you the hassle of constantly having to scrub and scrape the vehicle’s surface to remove these contaminants.

Ceramic coatings also provide a lot of other benefits in addition to keeping the paint on your car looking like new. They are heat resistant, UV ray protective, protect the paint from scratches, chemicals and other things that can harm your car’s finish. The reason why your car looks so fresh and shiny after a ceramic coating is applied is that the ceramic fills in any pores and gaps on the surface of the paint so it is smooth and reflective. This will not only make the paint look great but will magnify the shine and gloss of your vehicle making it look brand new. 

The best ceramic coatings are Modesta, Nanolex and CQuartz, but there are other brands available as well. Regardless of which product you choose, it will be applied by trained professionals after the vehicle has been properly prepped. This will involve cleaning the vehicle with a high-quality clay bar or clay mitt and then using an approved polishing compound to ensure that the paint is positively radiant before applying the ceramic. 

How do you maintain a ceramic coating?

You will need to wash your car regularly, but you should only use a pH-neutral shampoo or soap. You should avoid drive-through car washes, as the brushes can strip the coating off of your car. You will need to hand wash the vehicle if possible. If you do have to go through a car wash, then you should only use a soft cloth with very little pressure. 

The durability of your ceramic coating will depend on the environment, skill set and products you use. Generally speaking, ceramic coatings will last 2 years or more, but they may need to be reapplied sooner than that. If you do have to reapply the coating, it is very simple and takes only a few minutes. However, it is very important that the process is done correctly, as a poor application will result in the ceramic coating failing prematurely. This is why you should always use a professional to apply a ceramic coating to your car. They will have the tools, equipment and training to do it right the first time. This will ensure that you get the most out of your investment in a quality ceramic coating.
