What is ceramic coating?
Unlike traditional coatings, which are typically concocted from polymer resins, a car's ceramic coating is silicon dioxide or silica (SiO2) based. Commonly derived from quartz crystals and sand, silica creates an invisible “nanotechnology coating,” which when combined with elements like titanium dioxide, polysilazane, triethanolamine, water, and various other ingredients, becomes quite resilient. Once cured, this viscous liquid turns into a crystal-clear shell, a product that is commonly referred to as a nano ceramic coating, or ceramic coating for short.
A ceramic paint coating not only offers rock-hard paint protection, but a hydrophobic/water-repellent properties as well. This transparent layer of armor resists UV rays, repels road grime, and prevents scratches, chemicals, extreme heat, and swirl marks from eating into your car’s paintwork. When properly applied and cared for, this semi-permanent ceramic shield will last for years, requiring little more than a quick rinse when dirtied.
A pro ceramic coating product is an ultra high-end sealant that must be applied by highly skilled, certified professionals. This translates to the need for controlled environments, expensive equipment, all operated by highly trained staff members, which in turn translates to extremely high margins.
Although a $500 intro price for just the application of the ceramic coating itself may seem tempting, the fact remains that most cars require quite a bit of prep work via a clay bar, followed by a lot of microfiber clear coat polishing. Being that time is money, this surface prep stage often adds a lot of zeros to the final bill.
Why Not Wax?
While wax may add a lustrous level of shine to a car’s paintwork, it falls short in both protection and longevity. Natural carnauba, spray waxes, and ceramic wax may work for a while, but the protective layer they create is not nearly as permanent as a true ceramic coating.
While the up-front cost of a DIY ceramic nano coating may be more expensive than the average car wax, the superior levels of protection it offers are clear. Factor in the amount of time and money spent on stripping and reapplying car wax every month, and a ceramic coating’s benefits become even more obvious.
Our next generation of premier coating. The Benefits Are Countless.
WATER SPOT PREVENTION
Graphene decreases water-spotting potential. Stubborn etchings will be less likely to penetrate and damage treated surfaces
LOW FRICTION, HIGH CONTACT ANGLE
With a low surface friction, and a high contact angle of 125º, Graphene helps resist fine scratching and swirling, all while letting water fly off with ease
5 YEAR DURABILITY
Graphene features an amazing 5 year rated bond with the surface when installed professionally
Graphene ensures bird droppings, tree sap, dead bugs, and harsh chemicals will be less likely to penetrate and damage treated surfaces
HIGH TENSILE STRENGTH
Even when stretched in its one-atom thick form, Graphene does not tear due to its high tensile strength. When combined with PDMS coatings, Graphene helps to make for an even stronger coating
AND MUCH MORE...
Graphene also allows for easier cleaning, provides a wet, glossy look, enhances reflectivity, and has both anti-fouling and UV resistance properties
More about Graphene
Graphene is said to be a miracle material due to an abundance of beneficial properties. Even in it’s simplest form, a thin one atom thick substance, it is the lightest, strongest, thinnest material known to man.
Being a carbon-based material coupled with the presence of oxygen functionalities, graphene oxide can be easily dispersed in organic solvents, water, and polymer matrixes. This compatibility as a filler with polymer coatings (in this case polydimethylsiloxanes) is crucial, as it allows coatings to benefit from its properties.
