Ceramic Coatings For Cars Offer Long-Lasting Protection And Shine

Who doesn’t love a new car? They smell good on the inside and are pretty and shiny on the outside. But did you know, the possibility of a flawed shine is very real, even on the newest automobiles? By using ceramic coatings for cars, the paint job on a new vehicle can be properly sealed and flaws better protected against.

You’ve likely seen tired, worn out vehicles at shows and on the road that could, potentially, be considered classics but for their lackluster appearance. Chances are, no awards will be won by a classic car that is not bright and shiny. Even if you’re not entering your old car in a show, you’d like – in all probability – to use it for as long as you can. Maybe pass it down to the younger drivers in your family. But considering that the physical attributes of a car are usually far outlived by its mechanical attributes, your teen (no matter how much they want a car) will be embarrassed by and ashamed of the old, dull, chipped, and scratched clunker.

What Destroys a Car’s Finish?

There are lots of contributing factors that can dull and generally destroy the shiny finish on a car in addition to aging. Perhaps the finish was never properly waxed and has begun to fade. Before being washed off, bird droppings may have settled far longer than they should have on the surface, resulting in rough spots. Paint jobs can be made to look cloudy and dull from the multiple scratches we pick up in parking lots and during driving. A mixture of streaks, waterspouts, swirl marks, and more can destroy the beauty of your car long before the car itself outlives its usefulness.

One of Your Best Investments – Ceramic Coatings

Where your vehicle is concerned, one of the best investments you can make is to protect its finish with a ceramic coating. The value of a car remains higher if OEM paint and parts are maintained, versus replacing parts and repainting the vehicle. If you want to get the most for your automobile when you sell or trade it – or if you’re entering it in a car show – this is an extremely important factor.

Even on coats that are a handful of years old, the shine can be revitalized by a ceramic coating. As a bonus, compared to the original paint job, the ceramic protection will last much longer.

Waxing Versus Ceramic Coating

In the beginning, the best protective coating for a vehicle was wax. It protected the paint job against the atmosphere outside. For all intents and purposes, it worked well… until it didn’t. Technology and science have advanced protective coatings for cars well beyond anything wax could ever hope to offer. Through these kinds of coatings, scratches, mud, dirt, road contaminants, and more can be warded off.

Wax had another downfall in addition to not standing up as well as ceramic coatings. Into scratches and other crevices, it’s difficult (if not impossible) to apply wax. But ceramic coatings are thermal sprayed. They search out and sink into small pockets, crevices, etc.

Painting Versus Ceramic Coating

Originally, in addition to making a car look pretty, paint coatings were used in the automotive industry to protect the surface. But those paint jobs wore out quickly for many of the reasons discussed above. Vibrations, external forces, and more cannot dislodge today’s ceramic coatings, making them far superior to the paint jobs of old. Weather, acidic atmospheric qualities, bird fecal matter, and more will not penetrate modern ceramic coatings.
