Ceramic Coatings are manufactured containing a mix of Polymer and Si02 particles designed to adhere to specific surfaces. This UV resistant super slick layer, prevents dirt from sticking or bonding with the paintwork surface, allowing Water to bead off and making cleaning the vehicle much easier. Creating a hardened barrier over paintwork protecting from minor contact damage.
Ceramic Coatings are a Sacrificial Protective Layer, Our Ceramic Coating are Some of the Strongest & Thickest Available measuring 1-2 microns thick are designed to repel Dirt, Salt and water. Also Protect against harsher contaminants such as Bird droppings, Acidic Rain and UV radiation. Our 3 & 5 Year Synergy Ceramic Coatings are Backed by a manufacturer's Warranty.
Yes, Ceramics are like a shield that sits on top of surfaces such as paint as a front line defence, they resist better against harsher environmental conditions. For example
If an unprotected vehicle had fallen victim to Bird Droppings, the droppings would usually eat away and etch into paintwork causing damage sometimes within hours. For Ceramic Coated surfaces the protection instead resist the Corrosive Properties in the bird dropping that cause the etching, leaving a reasonable amount of time to safely clean the vehicle.
Not all ceramic coatings are built the same, we are exclusive Infinity Wax Synergy Ceramic Coatings Installers meaning we offer a manufactures warranty, We work closely with Infinity Wax to offer a ceramic coating that when properly maintained. Well outperforms the warranty periods meaning we are confident in our 3 & 5 year Ceramic Coatings. Please note all Vehicles are required to be machine polished in preparation for ceramic coatings, we recommend selecting the correct combination package to not only revive a vehicles appearance but protecting it for years to come!
Yes, Ceramic Coatings do make surface paintwork harder. Car paint measures around 1 to 4 on the Mohs' Hardness Scale, Our Warrantied Synergy Ceramic coatings after curing will increase the hardness to 9H.
We find that vehicles ceramic coated generally get less of a peppering effect on lower front bumpers and usually have less cluster scratching around the vehicle.
Preparation defines coating performance, for any form of application the surface must be carefully prepared. For Brand New vehicles we find preparation only needs a minor amount of pre-coating detailing such as gloss enhancement over swirl marks or factory buffer correction. Even for used cared for vehicles they often need at minimum Full Gloss enhancement in order for that flawless finish, ready for ceramic coating.
In order for our Ceramic Coating Warranties to be valid correct preparation must be done.
Ceramic Coatings are an art to apply to ensure your asset is properly protected, This requires Professional knowledge, skill and correct environment.
Dealership paintwork protections are rarely done to good standards, even on new plate vehicles, we regularly remove, correct overlooked or ignored paintwork issues and then properly apply our own professional Ceramic Coatings. Our advise is why risk having to pay twice? We offer Professional Detailing standards every time!
DIY kits do serve their purpose and Do offer a some protection but with so many variables it can be difficult to achieve the looks of professional installation.
Unfortunately we find these lifetime protections do not live up to the manufacturers claims, even big names in the valeting and detailing market or coatings offering lifetime protection applied from dealerships.
These lifetime claims are often cancelled out using complicated and tricky small print, All protective coatings lose their protective properties over time from doing what they are designed to do.
