Ceramic coatings are the latest and most revolutionary way to protect the paint on your vehicle or aircraft on the market today. Using nanotechnology, these coatings bind to the surface creating an extremely durable and protective layer; separating your vehicles paint and interior surfaces from the harsh elements of the environment.
Nanotechnology is engineering, science, and technology conducted at the molecular/atomic level. In the case of coatings, this is beneficial because characteristics such as hardness, luster, smoothness, and heat resistance can be manipulated and greatly enhanced.
When faced with the options of what you want to protect your vehicle with, we find that educating you on the difference between coatings, waxes, and sealants can aid you in choosing the protection that best suits your needs.
Wax has been around since the dawn of auto detailing and probably isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. While wax adds a natural and beautiful shine to paint, its UV protective properties can be less than sub-par unless it is genuine 100% Carnauba wax. Jars of pure carnauba wax can range upwards of $400 for a single container! Even at this level, your paint will be protected only for a few months.
Synthetic sealants are man-made and polymer-based which adhere and bind to clear-coat. They are purposely designed for longevity and protection against UV Rays and elements of our environment. They can last anywhere from 2 months up to 8-12 months depending which you choose. Aside from protection, sealants add a deep shine, as well excellent water beading and hydrophobic properties.
Coatings have been popular in Europe for the last several years and they have been growing in popularity ever since they’ve been introduced into the United States. Coatings offer the highest level of protection and shine when pitched against waxes and sealants. At the entry level, coatings can last 6 months; and depending what level you prefer, they can outlast the life of the car under proper maintenance. Bugs, tar, sap, and bird droppings all remove with ease and the damaging effects of all of these elements are minimized by 99% due to the extremely durable properties of the coating itself. Another amazing characteristic of coatings are their scratch resistant properties.
This is the 34 dollar question. Why choose Ceramic Pro for your vehicle? The real question is why not? Glass coatings are the ultimate form of protection against UV rays and the harsh elements in the Earth’s environment. Think of coatings as another layer of clear-coat stacked on top of the clear-coat of your vehicle; only stronger, harder, and offer a durability that is second to none.
We like to make this analogy: Imagine standing on a gravel road and rolling a candle down it. The candle would pick up dirt, gravel, and other debris that would be embedded in the surface. Candles are made with wax. The same properties apply to your paint. Dirt and debris attract to wax.
Now imagine the same scenario only with a glass. There is no debris or rocks that will be lodged into the surface. The same applies to your vehicle. The surfaces of your vehicle will stay cleaner, longer. After a wash, your vehicle will still have that same deep, wet looking shine as the day you picked it up from us.
