What's a Ceramic Coating?
Unlike Mr.Miyagi, this is not a "wax-on-wax-off" application. A ceramic coating is a semi permanent liquid layer that bonds to the vehicles surface. Its referred to as a "sacrificial" layer of protection as it'll absorb the weather elements like rain, dust, and snow to better protect the paint underneath.
As an analogy: Wax is like a tent protecting you in a rainy forest. The ceramic coating is like a brick house in a rainy forest. Both offer protection from rain and dust, but one is nothing like the other.
Benefits Of a IGL Ceramic Coating
There are several auto detailing businesses that make pretty big claims of what a coating can do. Although there are some truth to these claims, we don't like to oversell its capabilities. So here are some benefits you actually get with a coating:
Produces the most durable protection that lasts between 2 to 5 years.
You only need to apply it once (and not every 3 months, like a traditional wax)
Provides unmatched hydrophobic properties that keeps your car cleaner and makes it easier to wash
How A Ceramic Coating Can Help You Save In The Long Run
A ceramic coating is designed to chemically bond to the surface of your car. This adds an additional layer of defense against the weather, UV radiation, and tiny scratches and scrapes. You can save money with a ceramic coating in a few different ways. It first lessens the requirement for frequent washing and waxing. By creating a barrier against the weather, it also aids in maintaining the paint work; meaning it makes maintaining and cleaning your car simpler. Fourth, ceramic coatings can also raise the value of your car when you decide to sell it. A ceramic coating can help make your car more appealing to potential purchasers if you're considering selling it.
Things A Ceramic Coating Can't Do
Make your vehicle scratch resistant
While a ceramic coating has so much protection to offer, it simply cannot make the vehicle completely scratch resistant after the application
Despite many brands claiming to have a "lifetime coating" or warranty, this simply is not true. A coating, like many other things requires maintenance to last it's advertised time.
Fix Previous Imperfections
While a ceramic coating can fill in very light scratches and swirls it will not be able to remove deeper scratches, rust, or dents. To enjoy a ceramic coating to its full potential all of our services include a paint correction to remove as many of the imperfections as we can.
