Say goodbye to the constant struggle against dirt and stains, and say hello to the brilliance of a professionally applied ceramic coating from Platinum Auto Detailers.
WHAT IS CERAMIC COATING?
A ceramic coating is a solid transparent, slick and highly self-cleaning silica-based protective layer once crystallized. A ceramic coating might be applied on any surface of your vehicle to provide the ultimate protection.
HOW DOES THE CERAMIC COATING WORK?
The ceramic coating layer might be very thin, but is extremely resistant. It is fully chemical resistant and can't be removed by polishing. Being a liquid during application, the coating penetrates the porous structure of the paint and seals it. This does increase the slickness of any automotive paint enormously. A ceramic coating has great UV resistance, which prevents the paint from oxidation.
WHICH COATING IS THE BEST: QUARTZ, CERAMIC OR GLASS?
They all refer to the same type of product. Quartz/ceramic/glass coating are terms to name a SiO2 (silicone dioxide) based protective coating. They may have different formulations or features, but basically they all become as thin, transparent, protective layer. All the rest is pure marketing.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HAVING A CERAMIC COATINGS?
It's not all about the looks! Of course, a well prepared and ceramic coated car looks amazing, as Gyeon coatings are very glossy and enhance the intensity of the paint. But you will notice most benefits on a daily basis. The car will get dirty much slower, the usual maintenance wash will become less frequent. Your car will feel slick and will collect less dust and pollen. Paint will not oxidise, brake dust won't adhere to rims as much as before. Your paint will remain glossy as new for years.
DO GYEON COATINGS HAVE 9H HARDNESS?
Yes, just like every high-quality ceramic coating. But is that important? Not really. The important qualities of a ceramic coating are its enormous UV & chemical resistance, structural integrity and most of all - slickness. This is the key feature that helps maintain a vehicle scratch-free.
WILL A CERAMIC COATING ALWAYS BEAD AS DAY ONE?
No. Beading is spectacular, although it's the secondary quality of a ceramic coating. Fact: a coating might be even more self-cleaning being hydrophilic than hydrophobic. The hydrophobicity is a result of very high surface tension a coating generates. It will diminish with time due to contamination, but has no connection with the level of protection. To restore hydrophobicity, contact your detailer.
WHAT A CERAMIC COATING WON'T DO?
A ceramic coating will not protect your car against scratches, swirls or scuffs, unless maintained correctly. It won't protect you against stone chips or any other mechanical damage. A ceramic coating is not paint protection film. It is a fantastic tool for a conscious user to help maintain a vehicle in perfect condition with great use, but it will not solve all issues!
WHAT CAN I PROTECT WITH A CERAMIC COATING?
Paint: Ceramic Paint Coatings provide unparalleled protection for your paintwork. This protection is measured in years, and not weeks when compared to a standard wax. UV rays, daily dirt and grime, and even extreme contaminant such as bird droppings are repelled. This added layer of ceramic coating is extremely slick, superhydrophobic, and makes the regular wash maintenance of the car fast and easy.
Trim: Specifically designed for external plastics and trim to prevent fading, dulling and discolouration, UV rays and acid rain discolour and can turn a new black plastic to old grey within months. Our Q2 Trim ceramic coating bond securely with plastic, providing superior long-lasting protection with strong UV resistance, where most trim dressings fail in weeks.
Glass (Exterior): Increase your safety and visibility in poor weather conditions. Once applied, our ultra-hydrophobic coating repels rain and snow easily, leaving your glass crystal clear.
Convertible Soft Tops: Make your convertible soft top weatherproof and reduce its absorbency. Q² FabricCoat, our innovative ceramic-based textile sealant, will also prevent it from bleaching caused by strong UV rays or chemicals.
Tires and Rubber: Keep your tires looking newer for longer. Reduce the amount of road grime and contaminant absorbed by your tires with one of our ceramic enhanced sealants. A freshly dressed tire always compliments a clear car.
Rims and Brake Callipers: Protect your wheels from brake dust, dirt, grime and all that the road throws at them. Our specially engineered ceramic coating has an extreme temperature resistance to combat the heat experienced by your rims. Cleaning is much easier due to increased hydrophobicity leaving your wheels looking like new for longer.
Dash and Plastics: Keep your interior trim and plastics fresh and new. Our sealants will enhance the look of dry interior plastic and help prevent UV fading.
Leather: Keep your leather interior looking natural with a soft and supple feel. This invisible ceramic coating will minimize the absorption of body oils, lotions and clothing dye into the leather surfaces. It also protects against spills and leaves an original matte finish.
Glass (Interior): No more foggy windows! Increase safety and comfort with our Q2 Ant-iFog interior glass coating.
Upholstery/Textile: Prevent stains and dirt build-up on your delicate fabrics. This invisible coating seals the textile weave inhibiting die transfer and spills from ruining expensive interiors.
