Protecting your car from the elements
Ceramic Coating is a chemical solution that is professionally applied to the exterior of your vehicle to protect it from external paint damage.
After using the safe wash process, we apply the solution by hand. This then bonds with the paint of your car and creates an additional hydrophobic layer of clear protection. Because it's creating a new layer, the factory paint job remains untouched.
While many car enthusiasts believe this to be an alternative to paint protection film, ceramic coating, in reality, is an alternative to waxing. The main idea is to prevent dirt, grime, swirls and chemical marring from appearing on the paint and ruining the clear coat.
WHAT IS A CERAMIC COATING
If you've purchased a new or approved car from a dealer then you may have already heard about a Ceramic Coating without even knowing it.
Main dealers commonly offer a life shine or something that is very profitable for them, but which offers little to no protection for your new car. A ceramic coating is a highly effective layer of protection, which, when correctly applied by a professional detailer to your car's paint, can last for years.
Once applied a ceramic coating is extremely hydrophobic; its main purpose is to repel water and dirt. The ceramic coating is also resistant to UV rays, strong chemicals and can even help to reduce the risk of etching from bird muck and the fine scratches known as swirls.
IS MY CAR SUITABLE FOR CERAMIC COATING?
Any car can have a ceramic coating applied, whether it's brand new or a classic car or even the family run-about.
If you've just bought a car, you may think it's in perfect condition, but in fact cars straight from the showroom still benefit from machine polishing first, as having the best paint finish possible is key to a good, long-lasting finish.
These coatings are incredibly stable and do not change the look of your car's paintwork and as they're clear.
Before any coatings are applied, your car would need to be prepared - as this is the most important stage. Normally, a paint correction job would need to be done prior to application.
WHICH PARTS OF MY CAR CAN BE COATED?
Every surface on the vehicle can have a Ceramic Coating inside and out. The paint, wheels, windows, brake callipers, exhaust tips, soft tops, plastics, leather-fabric seats, carpets and all interior plastics can all have some form of protection, each part of the exterior and interior has a specific coating to suit the surface.
Having your glass ceramic coated adds a hydrophobic function that improves wet weather visibility helping to improve safety and eye strain. It also makes removing contaminants from the glass such as ice, bugs and tree sap much easier.
WHEELS AND CALLIPERS
Your cars wheels can sometimes be the most eye catching part of your vehicle, but can also be the hardest to clean.
This is where the ceramic coating comes in to play, being extremely protective against brake dust, road grime and strong acidic cleaners. Having a coating applied is easy low maintenance for a quick clean.
This coating is like no other as it has been specifically designed to withstand temperatures up to 600oC making ideal for wheels and brake callipers.
If you want low maintenance, but high protection then having your paint coated is certainly the right coating for you. Long lasting protection, plus high levels of gloss and extremely hydrophobic, keeps your car looking its absolute at all times.
Leather ceramic coating is a durable abrasion resistant matte finish which offers protection against abrasion damage, UV rays, dye transfer and other discolouration.
Friction protection is particularly important on seat bolsters, seat piping and any other high wear areas. The anti stain function is most relevant for light coloured leathers which are typically stained by dark coloured fabrics such as indigo jeans.
Modern Leather Fact
Many leather products market themselves on how they feed leather, when in fact this is not needed. Modern automotive leather use synthetic fat liquors which do not evaporate. Any product that is designed to feed leathers will not be absorbed by modern automotive leathers but instead remain on the surface attracting dirt which will then act as an abrasive foreshortening the leather’s finish.
SOFT TOP PROTECTION
Anybody that owns a convertible car knows how difficult it is to keep it from going green. Having a protection package applied is the best way possible to prevent algae build up on your roof.
Keeping it water proof is another challenge, as this is a big factor to stopping condensation build up inside the car. With the correct protection you'll be safe in knowing your convertible is fully protected.
