What is ceramic coating?
A ceramic coating is a chemical liquid polymer solution that, when applied to the exterior of a motorcycle or car, chemically bonds with the surface, creating a hydrophobic layer that acts as an effective paint protectant, fortifying your vehicle against weathering and corrosion while enhancing its aesthetic appearance.
What are the benefits?
There are a number of reasons why ceramic coatings are a popular choice for both car and motorcycle owners:
They make your vehicle easier to clean
Due to the hydrophobic qualities of a ceramic coating, the slick exterior surface of your vehicle repels water and dirt. Your ceramic-coated vehicle will still need washing, but not as often and with less effort required.
They are long-lasting
With the correct maintenance, the majority of ceramic coatings will last between two and five years. There are a lot of variables involved in the longevity of a ceramic coating, including how often you use your vehicle and the type of road surfaces you usually drive on.
They are cost-effective
Because ceramic coatings last for a minimum of two years, they are a cost-effective solution in the long run, in comparison to car waxing and sealing which typically needs to be done every three months.
They offer protection from dust and grime
If dust and grime are left on surfaces for an extended period of time, it can cause damage. A ceramic coating can protect against environmental contaminants which your car can come into contact with when on the road.
They protect against UV radiation
Harmful UV rays can lead to oxidation, which can cause the paintwork to fade and look dull and flat, which can decrease the value of your vehicle. Ceramic coatings prevent the process of oxidation and reflect harmful UV rays, keeping your paintwork looking sleek and glossy.
How do you use ceramic coating?
It is important to properly prepare your vehicle before applying a ceramic coating. Firstly, you should wash it and fix any scratches.
You should have a set of gloves, sponges, applicator cloths and a buffing towel to hand to apply the coating.
We recommend applying the coating indoors so that your vehicle is not exposed to direct sunlight. Make sure not to use too much of the solution at once, and focus on small areas. Once a section has been coated, you should let it sit for five minutes before buffing off the residue.
You should then let the ceramic coating cure for 1-2 days before driving the vehicle.
