There is a lot involved in keeping a vehicle as pristine as the day you bought it; taking it in for regular maintenance, keeping your car clean, and driving carefully can all keep your car running and looking like new. However, if you really want to keep your car’s paint job looking new, shiny, and free from swirl marks or stains, then you should consider having a ceramic coating added to your vehicle.
This may lead you to wonder what a ceramic coating is, and why you should have one added to your car. A ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that is applied to the exterior of your vehicle that chemically bonds with the factory paint adding a layer of protection to your car. Essentially, a ceramic coating is a premium wax alternative that provides superior protection to your vehicle and that lasts several years before needing to be reapplied. If you have never had a ceramic coating added to your car, here are just a few of the reasons you should consider doing so.
Your Car Will Stay Cleaner, Longer
One of the best features of ceramic coatings is that they are hydrophobic, meaning they repel water. When water comes into contact with a vehicle that has a ceramic coating the water will bead on the surface and be more likely to slide off rather than remain on the surface and cause watermarks. Additionally, ceramic coatings help to make a car’s surface less porous, making it harder for dust, dirt, and grime to stick to your car. XPEL’s ceramic coatings are also oleophobic, helping them to repel oily substances. All of this means that after you put time and effort into cleaning your car and making it shine, a ceramic coating will help to keep your car looking clean longer, reducing the amount of upkeep your car will require.
Make Cleaning Easier
Since ceramic coatings make it harder for dirt, grime, dust, pollen, and water to stick to your vehicle, this also means that when you do have to wash your car, getting your car clean will be easier than ever before. Cleaning your car will no longer require endless work and elbow grease, as the sediment that does land on your car should wipe off with ease.
No Need to Wax
Ceramic coatings essentially act as an alternative to wax; however, these coatings work longer than wax while providing superior protection to your vehicle. Rather than having to wax your vehicle every 2-3 months, a single ceramic coating can protect your vehicle for several years. In this way, a ceramic coating will make your car easier to maintain than ever before, while helping to keep it looking as shiny and pristine as the day you drove it off the lot.
Protect Your Vehicle From The Sun’s UV Rays
By adding a ceramic coating to your vehicle, you will also be helping to prevent damage to your car’s paint job that the sun’s UV rays can inflict. If your car spends a lot of time parked outdoors, the sun’s UV rays will cause your car’s paint to oxidize and fade. However, adding a ceramic coating to your vehicle will greatly reduce the number of ultraviolet rays that your car’s paint is exposed to on a daily basis, which can help to prevent this fading. Ceramic coatings essentially act as a layer of protection for your car’s paint job similar to traditional wax. However, these ceramic coatings are more durable, and longer-lasting, than wax, helping to provide superior protection to your paint. In this way, a ceramic coating can extend the life of your car’s paint job.
Investing in a ceramic coating can also go a long way in helping to protect your vehicle from light scratches. As you are likely all too aware, debris on the road can wreak havoc on your car’s paint job. Fortunately, a ceramic coating can help to protect your vehicle from these scratches with a single application. With a ceramic coating, you can take your car on the road with confidence knowing that your car will look great and is protected from minor damage.
Improve the Look of Your Vehicle
A ceramic coating will not only help to protect your vehicle, but it can also help to make it stand out by giving it a more glossy look. Ceramic coatings enhance the reflective properties of a car’s paint and clear coat, making the color shine by adding to the depth and clarity of your car’s paint job. Having a ceramic coating added to your vehicle will result in your vehicle having a smooth, durable, shiny finish unlike anything waxing alone can provide. Adding a ceramic coating to your car is then one of the best things that you can do to make it stand out on the road, as it will allow your car to truly shine.
