Ceramic coatings are alternatives to waxes, and if correctly applied can be more durable and make your auto’s exterior shine. A Ceramic Coating creates a permanent or semi-permanent bond with a vehicle’s paint. Therefore, it does not wash away or break down and does not require repeated application every few months. It is a liquid polymer that is applied by hand to the exterior of a vehicle. Furthermore, it’s a lot more expensive than waxing a car, and you’ll want to have a deep polish/clean done prior to applying a ceramic (you’ll want to get rid of as many issues on your exterior as possible as ceramic coatings are long lasting). Make sure to touch up areas where you may have lost some paint and wash your car extremely well.
A Ceramic Coating adds additional protection to your car’s exterior and helps keep it looking like-new with comparatively minimal maintenance. The coating achieves this by making your vehicle more resilient and easier to clean.
Ceramic Coatings probably aren’t for the DIYers. If you want this done to your auto, be sure to find a auto detail company who has some experience doing ceramics.
