What is a Ceramic Coating?

WHAT IS A CERAMIC COATING?
The easiest way to understand Ceramic Coatings is to think of them as a second layer of skin, or a sacrificial layer of protection over your car’s clear coat.
They utilize nanotechnology, which is essentially tiny particles that form a very fine, thin layer 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, scratches, chemicals, extreme heat, and even anti-graffiti. This ceramic layer is completely transparent.
A Ceramic coating reacts with your vehicle’s clear coat finish to form a second layer and thicker coating for added protection. These coatings are so durable that they are used widely in the aerospace industry.
A ceramic coating is a revolutionary way to protect your car's finish. When applied, the chemicals react with your vehicle's paint, fill in pores to make the surface smooth, and prevent dirt or water from sticking. Just think of it as a second clear coat that boosts shine. Paint coatings provide greater protection than traditional car wax or paint sealant, which can wear off in several months. Mobile Detailers Inc is certified in multiple coatings. Have one of our qualified detailers perform a comprehensive evaluation of your vehicle to determine if a ceramic coating is right for you.
BENEFITS OF CERAMIC COATINGS
Hydrophobic Otherwise known as being very water repellent. Rain and water bead as opposed to accumulating on the surface. This 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)
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 sunrays, 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 work 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.
