5 Benefits of Ceramic Coating for Your Vehicle

There’s no doubt that, over time, your car’s paint can begin to look a little less spiffy than it once did.

What Is Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic coating is a semi-permanent or permanent (depending on the type) of coating that is applied to the exterior of your vehicle to protect against external paint damage.

It is a nanoscopic paint treatment that’s applied in liquid form, but cures to form a hard layer over your vehicle’s paint. It’s typically composed of silicon dioxide (SiO2), which is often sourced from natural materials, including quartz and sand. When the chemicals bond with your car’s paint, they create a hydrophobic (water-repelling) effect.

There are many different types of ceramic coatings available, including DIY, but @ The Car Wash recommends you visit a professional to ensure your car’s paint is properly taken care of! Our professionals have years of experience and we can help provide you with solutions that best suit your vehicle.

5 Benefits of Ceramic Coatings


Protects Your Paint

Every time you drive your car, you’re exposing the paint to various contaminants that can cause damage. Ceramic coating provides a strong, protective surface on your car’s body that works to block all foreign matter from causing damage to your car. It can withstand a significant amount of damage without showing any visible effects on your car, such as fading, oxidation, and chemical staining.

Ceramic coating can also protect your car from harmful UV rays, which can lead to oxidation. This is especially helpful if you park your car outside.

Keeps Your Car Cleaner

With the hard surface that ceramic coating provides, any dirt or debris just rolls off the surface, rather than getting stuck within the tiny pockets of your vehicle’s body. This means that your car stays cleaner and even when it does need a wash, getting all that dirt off takes so much less time than it normally would!

Lasts Longer Than Other Paint Protection Methods

Traditional paint coatings such as wax wear off much faster than ceramic coatings. When you choose a ceramic coating from @ The Car Wash, you can expect it to last for years, without wearing off after being exposed to weather, components of the atmosphere, bird droppings, or other possible contaminants.

Cost Effective

One of the best parts about ceramic coating is that it’s a very cost effective option for vehicle owners. While the investment may be a bit larger up front, it will cost you less in the long-run because you won’t have to spend as much money on things like wax, car washes, and other exterior detailing services.

Depending on the type of ceramic coating you get, it is an essentially permanent solution, so you won’t have to worry about continuing to replace it year after year!

Looks Great

Who doesn’t love the look of a shiny new car? With ceramic coating, not only is your vehicle’s surface protected, but the fresh coating leaves a beautiful, candy-like gloss for all to admire. It will bring the best out of your original paint job, restoring your car’s look to when you drove it for the first time!
