WHAT IS AN AUTOMOTIVE CERAMIC COATING?
The easiest way is to understand Ceramic Coatings are to think of them as a second layer of skin, or a sacrificial layer of invisible protection covering your vehicle’s clear coat paint. Our Jade Ceramic Coatings utilizes nanotechnology, which are essentially tiny particles that form a very fine, thin layer completely invisible to the eye. Because these particles are so small, when applied to a surface, they seal all the pores making the surface hydrophobic (water-repellent), and also resistant to the sun’s UV rays, micro scratches, chemical spotting, extreme heat and even anti-graffiti. This layer of protection is completely invisible but hard as nails!
Our Jade Ceramic Coating forms a semi-permanent bond on your vehicle’s surface, resulting in a ‘sacrificial’ layer that will not easily wear away from general car washing, rain or the salty mist from the Pacific Ocean. In fact, usually, it lasts years. Our Jade Ceramic Coatings repel dirt and water like nothing else, which makes them much easier to clean. Their hardness (9H) helps to prevent swirl marks and marring from basic car hand washing. Detail King Express offers a two year and four year Jade Ceramic Coating. We also offer Jade Glass Coating protectant Wheel Protectant, and Trim Protectant.
For best results Jade Ceramic Coatings must be applied by trained and certified professionals. Zach Youngquist, co owner of Detail King Express here in Orange County is certified through Detail King, in Pittsburgh PA, which is one of the country’s very few Jade Certified Training Centers. The use of the paint correction equipment and expert skill-set makes the cost a little pricey, depending on your budget. On the very low end, you can expect to pay at least $499 for just the ceramic coating applied to the paint on a brand new car. The preparation and paint correction could add a few hundred to several hundred dollars based on the amount of paint correction needed and the size of the vehicle for a
WHAT DOES A CERAMIC COATING DO FOR CARS?
A critical feature of a Ceramic Coating as mentioned above is that it is hydrophobic. This basically means that water will be repelled instantaneously. When your car is ceramic coated, the incredible hydrophobic effect of the coating will cause water to bead up and roll off the surface along with most dirt, dust, grime, ocean mist and sand (as it has all been unable to bond to your vehicle’s paint). Any remaining debris on the car can be removed with a lot less effort.
Jade Ceramic paint coating works very hard at protecting the surface of your vehicle than an ordinary polish or wax. Rain and water bead up as opposed to accumulating on the surface. Salt mist, grime, bug splatters and bird droppings do not stick to the surface and can be easily removed without scratching the surface. Vehicles often exposed to the sunlight without protection will start seeing the paint look dull and rubbery. This is caused by the sun’s ultraviolet sunrays, which causes oxidation to the car’s paint. By adding a layer of Jade Ceramic Coating, you can dramatically reduce the oxidation effect.
Ceramic Coatings or also known as nano coatings works very hard at protecting the surfaces of your car. The new coating bonds with the molecular structure of your car’s paint and cannot be removed by vibrations or external force, meaning it lasts years not just months as waxes and polishes do. As mentioned earlier, think of it as an invisible but hard added layer of skin on top of your car’s paint.
WHAT DOES A CERAMIC COATING FOR CARS NOT DO?
Coatings Are Not Scratch Proof
Detailers and detailing suppliers boast about the scratch resistance of Ceramic Coatings, even going so far as to call them scratch-proof or resistant to paint chips which is not true. Light swirls and car wash scratches can definitely be resisted by a Ceramic Coating and the sacrificial layer the coating forms will certainly help against minor incidents that would otherwise mar your car’s surface. For examples; driving through brush, small little impacts from kids bikes and scooters, small rocks hitting up against your paint while driving, or pets jumping up excitedly against the car.
Coatings Do Require Maintenance
Ceramic Coated cars do require periodical washing and maintenance just like any protected painted surface. A Jade coating will drastically cut down on the amount of washing and maintenance time but not completely eliminate the need for it. The fact is if you are going to drive your car, even if its infrequent, the road is a dirty and the surface is going to gradually get dirtier even with a ceramic coating. It will still require washing, just with a lot less effort and less frequency. Detail King Express offers hand washing and ceramic coating reboot services. Just ask Zach more about those Quik N’ Eazy Ceramic Coating Maintenance services.
Overall with a ceramic coating, it’s going to be much easier to clean and keep your car looking showroom new. Additionally, it eliminates the need for waxing or polishing every few months, saving a lot of money over the course of the ceramic coatings lifetime. We can provide maintenance washes and maintenance Top Coats or we can offer you a DIY Maintenance Kit for Ceramic Coatings for washing and maintaining your vehicle’s painted surfaces after the coating has been installed.
