Premium Ceramic Coating
Premium ceramic coating is a special layer applied to the exterior of a vehicle that provides an extra level of protection against damage from the elements. It's made of tiny ceramic particles that bond with the surface of the vehicle to create a durable, long-lasting barrier that can help to prevent scratches, fading, and other forms of damage. Ceramic coating is also resistant to chemicals and UV rays, which can cause discoloration and other issues over time. Overall, it's a highly effective way to keep a vehicle looking great for years to come, and it's becoming increasingly popular as a way to protect investments in cars and trucks.
Steps to a Premium Ceramic Coating
Wash & Decontamination
The first step in applying a ceramic coating is to thoroughly wash the vehicle and remove any surface contaminants that may interfere with the coating's ability to bond to the paint. This process may include a decontamination step to remove embedded contaminants like tar, tree sap, and industrial fallout.
Once the paint is clean and free of imperfections, the surface needs to be prepped for the ceramic coating. This typically involves using a specialized cleaner or prep solution to remove any remaining oils or residues from the paint.
Once the coating has been applied, it needs to be left to cure for a specified amount of time. This allows the ceramic particles to bond with the paint and form a strong, durable barrier.
If the vehicle's paint has imperfections such as swirl marks, scratches, or oxidation, these need to be corrected before the ceramic coating is applied. This may involve a process of compounding, polishing, and refining to restore the surface to a smooth, uniform finish.
The ceramic coating is then applied to the vehicle's exterior using specialized applicator pads. The coating needs to be applied evenly and in thin layers to ensure a smooth finish.
After the coating has cured, the surface is inspected to ensure that the coating has been applied evenly and that there are no imperfections or missed areas. This ensures that the vehicle is protected and looks its best for years to come.
