A Ceramic Coating enhances the deep gloss look of your car’s paint, adding to the depth and clarity of your paint.When a vehicle has a Ceramic Coating or paint sealants, water will bead on the painted surface in return the car will clean easier. This means that dirt and stains will have a tough time sticking to your vehicle, and when you wash your car with paint protection it becomes much easier, in return fewer scratches and keeping the deep gloss look. Car cleaning becomes easy!
Paint correction is a common term used by both professional and amateur auto detailers worldwide; it describes the process of restoring and revitalizing the paintwork of a vehicle, The paint must be corrected before a ceramic coating and paint protection
This is achieved mostly by eliminating surface imperfections, which dull, oxidize, or haze the surface by reflecting light in different directions.
These surface imperfections include scratches and swirl-marks and are corrected by removing a small amount of clear coat from the car surface using polishing machines or buffers to apply micro-abrasive polishes. This process levels out the surface afterwards the paint protection coatings can be applied.
Ceramic Coatings need to be appropriately layered. The more layers you apply, the more protection and longer the ceramic coating will last.
The main ingredient in ceramic coatings is Silicon Dioxide (SiO2), which is measured by percentages. The higher the SiO2 percentage, the stronger and durable the coating becomes.
Most of the time, 2 ceramic coating layers along with a top coat layer is all you need. It delivers the safety you require against scratches and abrasions, as well as the protection you seek against ultraviolet, gives off the great glossy look.
The ceramic coating will then take about 1 week to cure, depending on the outdoor temperature and humidity levels. But this doesn’t mean you can’t drive your car during this time. You can still use your car after 12 hours, but you do have to be careful.
Applying a Boost Spray, Using neutral car shampoo, Washing only after 2 weeks with microfiber towels. Is the best way.
