No matter how long you’ve had your vehicle, you want it to look as great as it did when you first brought it home. To help keep your vehicle looking good, you take good care of your vehicle by by bringing it in to get washed regularly and having a detailing company apply a coat of wax every few months to protect your paint. But despite your efforts, you may have started to notice streaks that won’t go away and chips in your paint. Even after you’ve had your vehicle carefully washed and waxed, dirt and grime start to dirty it as soon as you drive it in the streets of San Francisco.
It can be frustrating to take such good care of your vehicle and still feel like it doesn’t look as good as it used to. But what if there was a way to protect your vehicle’s paint and make it easier to wash without having to keep applying the product like you have to do with wax?
It sounds too good to be true, but it is! Ceramic Coating (or Nano-Ceramic Coating) can solve your problems and even help add value to your vehicle! Before you write it off as another type of detail, it’s important to know just what this great product can do for your vehicle.
What is Ceramic Coating?
A ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that we apply to the exterior of your vehicle by hand. The polymer bonds with the paint on your vehicle to create a strong layer of protection for your vehicle. Ceramic is NOT a substitute for paint protection film. Instead, it acts as a substitute Wax Replacement by creating a semi-permanent bond with your paint. That means it doesn’t wash away or break down and you don’t have to re-apply it every few months.
What does Ceramic Coating Do?
By creating an extra layer of protection, Ceramic Coating does a lot more than keep your vehicle looking new! Here are some of its benefits:
- UV damage and oxidation protection
- Etching protection
- Chemical staining protection
- Easier cleaning
- Enhanced gloss
What does Ceramic Coating NOT Do?
Like any product, Ceramic Coating has limitations. It’s important to know that this product does NOT:
- Eliminate environmental hazards (chips, scratches, and swirl marks)
- Eliminate water spot risks
- Eliminate washing your vehicle regularly
What does this Mean for You in San Francisco?
So what does all this mean for you and your vehicle? In short, it means your car, truck or SUV be taken care of with less effort thanks to the protection that comes from Ceramic Pro Coating. It will protect your vehicle and add value, make it easier to keep clean, and make it look just as great as it did when you first bought it!
It’s important to know that a Ceramic Coating is NOT a substitute for a quality Clear Bra (Paint Protection Film). A Paint Protection Film is a more comprehensive protection for your vehicle, especially at its most vulnerable points, and works in cooperation with the Ceramic Coating to protect your vehicle.
