How Does Ceramic Coating Work?

If you are looking for the ultimate protection for your vehicle, then ceramic coating should certainly be something you consider, amongst other methods. Despite its effectiveness, however, the way that ceramic coating works and how it specifically protects your vehicle is not widely known. Therefore, before you decide to invest in the method, we here at Mr Nano Protective Coatings have decided to break down exactly what ceramic coating is and how it works for your vehicle’s protection to give you all the information you need before you get started.

So, How Does it Work

Ceramic coating, such as the one we provide, is a liquid polymer that is applied to the exterior of your vehicle. Essentially, it works by creating a chemical bond with the paint that has already been applied during manufacturing. Usually, there are two options for how this bond will be applied: permanent or semi-permanent. It is worth spending some time considering which option is best for you but be aware that both will provide protection that does not wash away or easily break down, and neither should require you to reapply the application regularly.

Overall, the ceramic car coating acts as another layer of defence for your vehicle, making it more resilient to potential damaging agents. So, what exactly does it protect your vehicle from?

What Does Ceramic Coating Protect your Vehicle from?

Chemical stains

Staining and etching can become a serious problem for car owners, resulting in a serious financial investment being required to undo any damages caused. It is better, therefore, to ensure that you remain one step ahead of this. Ceramic coating offers a new, chemically resistant surface for your vehicle, preventing the likelihood of stains or etching and making the car resistant overall to the potential effects of naturally acidic contaminants.

Dirt

Whilst dirt does not present a glaring problem for your vehicle in terms of potential damages being caused, it can ruin your car’s overall aesthetic and cause problems if not kept in check. Ceramic coating is hydrophobic, which essentially means that dirt and grime will have a harder time sticking to the surface of your car, keeping it cleaner for longer. Furthermore, when you do eventually find that your car is in need of a wash, the contaminants can be removed with ease thanks to the new surface.

Oxidisation

When a vehicle is left at the mercy of the sun’s UV rays, its paint will begin to oxidise. Essentially, this will result in your paint fading over time and appearing duller, losing the shine that you fell in love with. Ceramic coating prevents this oxidisation damage by becoming a barrier between your car’s paint and the UV rays from the sun, thereby keeping your car shinier for longer.

Faded Paint

Whilst a faded paint job is also not something that is necessarily damaging to your vehicle, anyone who takes pride in their car will know that it is still something to avoid. As well as preventing the potential damaging factors of oxidisation, ceramic coating also works to keep your paint job enhanced for longer by boosting the reflective properties of your paint job, thereby adding more gloss and depth to the colour and shine of it.
