Do I still need to wash my vehicle?
Certainly yes. There isn’t any product that can guarantee to keep your vehicle completely free of debris and dirt! However, by installing a ceramic coating, you will spend much less time and effort on your wash process.
My car currently has a coat. Why would I need a ceramic coating?
The clear coat currently on your vehicle is hardened coating meant to protect the paint’s colored layer. This clear layer is bound to become damaged from a lot of factors like bird droppings, bugs, marks, and automatic car wash among other things. This leads to nasty marks that will hamper clarity, and thus obstruct your colored paint layer’s view. To get rid of these nasty marks, we use the paint correction process and it removes small quantities of your clear coat to reach the extent of defect. There is just a limited amount of clear coat on the vehicle which you can only polish so many times. It’s here that Ceramic Coating comes in handy. Upon being applied, it adds the vehicle a thick, hardened layer of clear coat. The layer contains a more highly rated hardness level than your factory clear coat. This makes it much more resistant to etchings, scratches and marring. The ceramic coating improves the surface tension, giving it the capability to repel liquids. The layer also doubles up as a sacrificial layer, which means that should it get damaged, you’ll just remove it and still remain with factory clean on our car.
