Ceramic Coatings - The Many Benefits
Ease of Cleaning, Hydrophobic Nature
Waxes do a great job at providing protection and repellency for a short period of time. However everyday elements and wash chemicals will start degrading that protection from the moment it has been applied. Unlike Ceramic, Wax simply sits on top of the paint’s surface. It does not create the chemical bond like we find with Ceramic.
Once applied & cured, Ceramics are extremely resistant to environmental pollutants, water and soaps. Providing the car is washed and maintained correctly after coatings have been applied, you don’t have to worry abut the polymer wearing off. And because of this you will see extremely hydrophobic properties for an extended period of time.
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. With sun damage being so widespread around the world, you’re going to want to find ways to control its impact. Having a Ceramic coating applied will protect your car’s paint from oxidizing, stopping it from fading, leaving behind a flat dull, unsightly look.
Protection from Water Spotting
Water Spotting on your car's body and glass is caused by the remains of hard water that has been allowed to dry on those previously shiny surfaces. Calcium and magnesium are found in high concentration within this hard water. As the water evaporates, it leaves behind traces of these minerals that appear white when dry.
Acidic contaminants in the air are another element that has potential to damage your car. Having a coating applied will prevent these contaminants from bonding into the paint. With air pollution only increasing, ceramic coating can be a huge help.
Insane Gloss enhancement
Much like PPF(Paint Protection Film) ceramic coating also adds gloss and depth into your paint. Leaving you with a refined glossy look, bringing the best out of that factory paint job.
Over the past few years, its popularity has only risen worldwide. Many automotive dealerships even offer to apply this to your new/second hand car. But be cautious and do your research on what they are going to apply before making your decision.
From us here at MCC, we highly recommend you support a local detailer/business and leave the coating application up to them. Of course, providing they have the correct training and experience. You will certainly not regret seeing your pride and joy protected and ready for anything the environment has to throw at it!
