WHAT IS CERAMIC COATING?
Ceramic coating is made up of silica. Silica is what glass is made up of. It is a compound found in sand quartz that is extracted and turned into liquid. Once the product is applied to its principal surface and meets the air it hardens to create a glass like barrier. It not only protects your cars exterior from contamination, industrial fall out, light surface scratches, the suns rays, and outside elements. It provides a long lasting durable shine for up to 3 years.
HOW DO YOU CARE FOR CERAMIC COATING?
To ensure you are not waisting your time or your money please ensure to keep up with the maintenance for ceramic coating. Maintaining a ceramic coated car is much more easier than without it and here is why, contamination does not stick to the exterior of the paint as easy as clear coat on the car. This makes washing your car so much easier. As a professional detailer we recommend washing your vehicle at least once a week if not bi-weekly this ensures the elements do not have time to stick or contaminate the ceramic coating on the car. (we will talk about this later). A proper maintenance booster should be applied every 6 months to a year by a professional detailer. (I will list the products Ultimate Auto Detailing uses at the end of this article to make it easier for you to purchase and maintain the washes yourself if you like to wash your vehicle on the weekends. (There will also be a blog about how to properly wash your vehicle)
