What a "Ceramic Coating" Can Do

Protection from Harmful UV Rays

You can only imagine the damage that the sun’s harmful UV rays can do to your car’s paint job. Ceramic coating will protect your car’s paint from oxidizing, preventing it from fading and wearing a dull look. This is absolutely critical if you park your car outside.

Protection from Chemical Stains

Chemical stains arising from acidic contaminants in the air is another potential damage to your car. A coating will prevent these contaminants from bonding into the paint. With air pollution rate only rising in the city, ceramic coating can be a huge relief.

Hydrophobic Nature, Ease of Cleaning

When it comes to waxing and other types of detailing, washing your car becomes a headache. With ceramic coating, you don’t have to worry about this coating wearing off. (Incidentally, removing it completely requires another process involving a polishing and wet-sanding.)

Not only does it blend with your car’s paint but also repels water. This means that all water-based dirt and grime will bead on the surface and eventually slide off. A quick jet wash afterward and you have yourself a spotless, age-defying car.

Candy-Like Gloss

This is where the aesthetics all car owners will love. Much like car bra, ceramic coating also gloss and depth into your car’s paint. It will give your car a glossy look, bringing the best out of the original paint job.

All of these benefits have revealed the truth about ceramic coating, haven’t they? Over the past few years, its popularity has only risen in and around the Houston area. Reviews from both users and auto industry experts have been extremely positive. A look at our own records here at Weekend Detail gives us a good idea about car users’ general willingness to try out this superb protection for their car.

What a "Ceramic Coating" Cannot Do

Protection from All Types of Scratches and Swirl Marks

Ceramic coating will not protect your car from the usual threats: scratches, swirl marks, and rock chips. Despite its blending properties, it still retains the characteristics of paint. This is why you should still expect your car to be at the receiving end of these common, undesirable elements.

 

Protection from Water Spotting

As discussed before, after the application of ceramic coating, water-based contaminants will bead on your car’s surface and eventually slide off. But they still contain natural minerals and soluble particles that will stay on the surface after the water has evaporated.

Ceramic coating cannot get rid of the water spots that are produced, yet they can make removal of these stubborn marks far easier

Stop the Need for Car Wash

You will still need to regularly wash your car. A layer of ceramic coating does not give your car superpowers to auto-clean itself. While we are all waiting for a miracle product that would do that, for now, let’s focus on the bright side of ceramic coating.
