what is Ceramic Coating?

One Word = Hydrophobic

What is a Ceramic Coating?

What is a 9H ceramic coating? The easiest way is to understand Ceramics Coatings is to think of it as a second layer of skin, or a sacrificial layer of protection over your car’s clear coat. Utilizing Nanotechnology, which are essentially tiny particles that form a very fine, thin layer of protection completely invisible to the eye. Because these particles are so small, when applied to a surface, they seal all the pores making the surface hydrophobic (water-repellent), but also resistant to UV, minor scratches, chemicals, extreme heat and even anti-graffiti. This 9H ceramic layer is completely transparent.


 What Does a Ceramic Coating Do?

Hydrophobic
Otherwise known as being very water repellent.

An important feature of a Ceramic Coating is that it is hydrophobic.  This basically means that water will be repelled instantaneously. When your car is ceramic coated, the incredible hydrophobic effect of the coating will cause water to bead up and roll of the surface along with most dirt, grime, or mud (as it has all been unable to bond to your vehicle’s paint).  When people ask “what is ceramic coating” this is often the first demonstration.

Mud and Dirt

 

Mud & Dirt Repellent
Ceramic coating works much harder at protecting the surface of your vehicle than ordinary paint job.

Rain and water bead as opposed to accumulating on the surface. Snow and ice does not stick to the surface. And mud as demonstrated above just slides off.

Ceramic UV/Ox/rust Protection

What additional benefits does Ceramic Coating have?

Protection from UV Damage / Oxidization / Rust
Vehicles often exposed to the sun will start seeing the paint fade and look dull. This is caused by the sun’s ultraviolet sun rays, which causes oxidation to the car’s paint. By adding a layer of Ceramic Coating to your paint, you can dramatically reduce the oxidation.

 Improved Durability
Ceramic coatings or nano coatings if you will, works much harder at protecting the surface of your vehicle than an ordinary paint job. The new coating bonds with the molecular structure of your car’s paint and can’t be dislodged by vibrations or external force, meaning it lasts years not months. As mentioned earlier in the article, think of it as an added layer of skin on top of your paint.
