Unlike wax, ceramic coating fills in the pores of the paint and forms a permanent bond. This yields a surface that is immensely glossy and slick.
Coatings are water (hydrophobic) & dust repellent, making the car less dirty over time. And cleaning the car gets easier & quicker as unwanted elements come off effortlessly.
Ceramic coating misunderstandings
With so many manufacturers, there’s a lot of incorrect information about coatings. Two of the most widely spread false qualities are coating’s types & scratch resistance. Which we discuss ahead
The main ingredient of coating is Silica or Silicon Dioxide. This compound is also found in Glass, Ceramics, Quartz and sand! Knowing this, companies have marketed the same silica based coating using different names. Like Glass, Ceramic or Nano coating despite all being the same thing. Ultimately, this marketing technique has created more confusion amongst consumers. But bottom-line is that all these terms are synonymous and refer to the same silica based coating.
Many companies solely advertise the scratch resistance of their coatings. Some even claim that their coatings are scratch-proof (which is utter nonsense). They overuse the term, 9H hardness, to back up their scratch-proof claim. What they’re not telling you is that a 9H-certified coating is only slightly harder than a fingernail! You see, a coating is 9H on the pencil hardness scale. This scale uses graphite in its testing of the coatings. And graphite is around 3H on the Mohs scale; slightly higher than a fingernail. (if you need more clarification, then feel free to get in touch with us). Ultimately, the coating’s purpose is not to protect the car from scratches. Instead, it offers immense gloss, hydrophobic properties, and Chemical & UV resistance.
