The benefits of ceramic coating

If keeping a vehicle in elite condition with a high gloss finish is important to you, then ceramic coatings are a great, low maintenance option to keep that glossy coat shining for the long run. A ceramic coating sets with a high gloss finish and this keeps vehicles looking great for years to come.

The thin layer of transparent glass created by the hardening of NV PRO not only blocks damaging contaminants and amazing scratch resistance, but it also amplifies the luster of what’s underneath. This is a major reason why polishing, clay bar treatment, and prep work is required prior to application.

Here is a practical example. If you apply a high-quality glass coating on a clear coat that contains scratches, swirl marks, tree sap stains, and other damage, those imperfections will be amplified. However, if you have a professional detailer repair those imperfections first, that nearly perfect paint will appear glossy, deeper, and rich. Our ceramic coating comes with a full paint correction prior to applying your ceramic coat.

If you’ve spent long hours meticulously cleaning your vehicle, raise your hand. The ritual of car care is truly an appreciated task that’s embraced by passionate car enthusiasts everyday across the globe. But there comes a time when this process becomes tedious, daunting, and quite frankly – frustrating.

With the addition of a nano-ceramic coating to a vehicle, the paint adds the super hydrophobic effect of reduced cleaning times and it’s “self cleaning”. Thanks to the high gloss hydrophobic finish of the ceramic nanoparticle formulation, dirt and grime easily wipe off a protected surface far easier than a non-protected surface.

What once took scrubbing and harsh chemicals to remove built on dirt, now easily washes off with water from a hose.

The hydrophobic effect also leads to what is often termed as “self-cleaning” properties. Dirt, grime, and contaminants are less likely to stick to the car’s surface and are more easily washed away with water, reducing the need for frequent cleaning.

Unlike traditional waxes and sealants that also provide water repellency but wear off relatively quickly, ceramic coatings bond chemically with the car’s paint, providing a long-lasting protective layer.

Ceramic coatings will last many years and won’t need to be recoated until the coating has broken down which can take upward of 10 years.

Chemical Stains are both unsightly and quite difficult to remove from a paint‘s surface. With the addition of a nano ceramiccoating, your car adds defense against most common chemical stains that otherwise stain unprotected surfaces.

In the event a strong chemical meets a protective coated surface, the coating blocks it in its tracks. This resistant technology helps alleviate costly paint correction procedures and enables otherwise harmful chemicals from penetrating into the clear coat and damaging the beautiful paint that lies underneath the protected surface.

Preventing UV damage and premature oxidation are ceramic coatings bread and butter. These coatings are specifically formatted to reflect ultraviolet rays and enable the coats to both look better and stay better protected from the harsh rays of the sun.

UV damage typically occurs because of lack of maintenance or upkeep especially in coastal areas that have high salinity in the air. The salt, sun and humidity all contribute to harmful damage over time. However, with the addition of ceramic coatings, the coat acts as an invisible shield between contaminants penetrating to the clear coat.

After paint correction, the vehicles paintwork is flat, free of debris, and scratches. Essentially, it in tip-top shape and ready for a sealant that cures at 9H hardness. This protective coating comprised of silicon dioxide reflects UV damage and in turn prevents oxidation from occurring in a properly maintained nano ceramic surface. Think of nanoceramic coatings as a layer of sunscreen that resists UV damage on the vehicle.

THE CERAMIC COATING PROCESS

STEP 1

Snow foam pre soak.jpg

PRE-WASH

A decontamination pre-soak using snow foam allowed to adequately dwell, followed by a thorough pressure rinse down.

STEP 2

Microfibre wash.jpeg

PHYSICAL HAND WASH

Using a strip car wash detergent with a microfibre wash mitt. Where appropriate we also use a detailing brush with the detergent to clean around more intricate car trims to remove trapped dirt.

STEP 3

Clay Bar.jpeg

DECONTAMINATION

The use of chemical iron, tar, mineral and traffic film removal chemicals and/or automotive clay to remove potential road and environmental particles as well as any prior car waxes or sealants.

STEP 4

Car Polishing .jpg

PAINT CORRECTION

Compounding and/or polishing car paint to ensure defects such as paint oxidation, water etchings, swirls and scratches are removed, and paint is amplified to its greatest gloss and clarity levels.

STEP 5

WASH, DRY & PANEL WIPE

In the circumstance where the vehicle is subjected to increased volumes of compounding dusts and/or other environmental contamination, we repeat the pre-wash, physical wash, and blow drying steps after paint correcting and prior to performing a full and thorough panel wipe down with an isopropyl alcohol.

STEP 6

CERAMIC COATING APPLICATION

Once the vehicle is fully prepared it is now time to apply the ceramic coating. Once the coating process is complete, the vehicle must stay stationery in a garage or workshop away from rain.
