Should you consider ceramic coating for your car?

We know that many drivers take great pride in their vehicles. They spend hours cleaning, washing, and waxing their cars to keep them looking new. Normal wear and tear will ultimately take its toll on your vehicle, no matter how many times you wax it. That’s where ceramic coating comes in, and Evolution Customs is here to explain what it is and how it can benefit your automobile. Keep on reading for more information.

Definition of ceramic coating

Ceramic Coating is a liquid polymer applied to your car, which is applied by hand for consistent results. It forms a chemical link with your car’s factory paint, adding an extra layer of protection. Ceramic coating, unlike wax, cannot be washed off. Therefore, you won’t have to reapply every few months. It’s a long lasting, semi permanent bond, which means it won’t dissolve as quickly as wax and will last much longer.

How does ceramic coating work?

Ceramic coating gives further protection to your car’s exterior while also maintaining that ‘new look shine’ that all drivers strive for. The following are the primary advantages:

UV protection and oxidation protection

If a vehicle’s paint is exposed to the sun repeatedly, it will begin to oxidize, leaving it drab and faded. Ceramic coating protects a vehicle’s paint from UV radiation from the sun, which reduces oxidation.

Chemical Stain Protection

Chemical browning, caused by naturally acidic pollutants, is another threat to your car. Ceramic coating prevents contaminants from clinging to your vehicle’s paint by providing a chemically resistant surface. As a result, if the pollution is eliminated early enough, your vehicle will be more resistant to staining and etching.

Gloss Enhancement

If you want your paint to stand out with a glossy finish, use ceramic coating. A good quality ceramic coating increases the depth and clarity of your car’s paint by improving the reflective characteristics of the paint and clear coat.

How long does it take to ceramic coat a car?

How long will it take you to get your car ceramic coated? The prep work takes up most of the time in the ceramic coating process, so things get a lot easier after that’s done.

Installing a professional ceramic coating takes three to four days, depending on the car and its condition. If your automobile is relatively new and doesn’t need to be intensively cleaned first, it can take from two to three days to complete, but it could take up to four days if your car is substantially older or exposed to more dirt and pollution. 

How long does ceramic coating last?

Despite what some individuals may believe, ceramic coatings are not permanent. Even the most high quality ceramic coatings with 5 year warranties are hypothetical and subject to various factors. If the car is not kept in a garage or washed regularly, the sun, dust, dirt, and other environmental factors will destroy the vehicle’s protection. A good quality ceramic coating should last between one and five years. Only a small percentage actually last for seven years, but they are the most expensive and require regular upkeep. It all depends on how well you take care of your vehicle and what you put it through.
