Why should you apply ceramic coating to your car?

Firstly, the ceramic coating will make your car shine like the day you first bought it! It will no longer carry the old, dull paint which can make your car look dated. Instead, the car’s paint surface will be improved and will look surprisingly bright. The new luster and shine of your car will make heads turn as you drive down the high street!

Secondly, the ceramic coating can protect your car’s paint. It protects your original paintwork from minor damage such as bird droppings and hard water spots, etc.

In addition, ceramic coating can help limit dust accumulation on your car. The ceramic coating gives your vehicle an outstanding hydrophobic property. From there, it will be easier for you to wash and clean your car. This will save you a lot of time. 

Some ways to wash a ceramic coated car

After your car is covered with a ceramic coating, many people think that washing the car will become easier. Sometimes people even think that we will never have to rewash the car after getting a ceramic coating! That is entirely wrong.

We not only have to wash the car regularly, but we also have to pay attention to a few things to avoid bringing harmful effects to the ceramic layer.

First, you should not wash your car after getting a ceramic coating for the first week. This is because the ceramic coating has just been applied to the painted surface and it takes time to cure fully. Washing your car immediately after getting a ceramic coating will cause the bond between the compound and the paint surface to crack completely, making the ceramic layer meaningless.

Secondly, when washing cars that have been coated with ceramic, you should use pH-neutral soaps. If you use soaps that are too strong, it will make the ceramic layer peel off and reduce its lifespan quickly.

Third, you can use the “2 buckets” method when washing ceramic coated cars. This method will get your car cleaned effectively. Moreover, when car washing, you should wash from top to bottom. And for low places like wheels and tires, you are advised to use separate tools to wash them. To avoid “cross-contamination.”

In addition, you should wash your car every 1-2 weeks. This will help to maintain the appearance of the car and will keep your car in a clean and new condition at all times.
