One of the most common questions I hear from friends and friends of friends is What are these ceramic coatings you keep talking about?
Simply said, these are ceramic based coatings that you apply on top of any surface you are looking to protect. Because we specialize in automotive detailing, I’ll be explaining it from the point of a vehicle. At Liberty Autoworx we use Gyeon Mohs ceramic coating or a self healing ceramic coating called Revivify. Both are consistently rated as the top performing (in all ways) nano-coatings you can get. See what they say about nano-coatings:
Ceramic coating once cured, is measured to have hardness above 9H. Normal clear coat has hardness between 2H and 4H. The increase in the hardness of the coated surface is vast. This makes it one of the hardest paint coatings on the market today. This new glass shield prevents minor scratches to your clearcoat and acts as a sacrificial layer. This preserves the original factory paint and clear coat.
With ceramic coating your paint won’t fade or age due to the UV protection in the glass coating. All of this allows for more peace of mind and a fuller enjoyment of your vehicle, even in harsh environments.
This nano technology allows the Ceramic nanoparticles to fill the smallest pores in the paint which makes the glass shield shiny, smooth and extremely slick or hydrophobic. Ceramic coating dramatically lowers the surface tension preventing environmental contaminants such as: bird droppings, bugs, dirt, tar and graffiti paint from bonding to the surface. Water easily removes dirt from the surface by encapsulating it while rolling off the surface. This is called the self-cleaning effect.
Once the ceramic coating has cured it can only be removed through abrasion like power polishing. This puts ceramic coating in a category by itself, compared to sealants or waxes that degrade quickly.
