What is Ceramic Coating?
Ceramic coatings, also commonly known as glass coatings, nano coatings, silica coatings and hydrophobic coatings, are defined as a semi-permanent, non-metallic, inorganic protective clear coat, that is applied on several type of different surfaces.
Why is it better than wax to protect my car?
1. Ceramic coating last 12 times longer than traditional wax or sealant. Considering a layer of wax may last around 1 month, you’ll need to reapply it 12 times a year. And sealants last about 6 months, so that’s twice a year that you’ll have to come back to the shop for reapplication.
2. Saves 1/2 washing time
Ceramic coating cuts down cleaning time by half. That’s less portion of a Sunday you need to dedicate to washing your car. That’s also a shorter time spent cleaning up after revving past a particularly muddy road.
3. 10X effective against any weather
With 10 times more efficiency in combating harsh weather & foreign elements, your car is protected all seasons long with ceramic coating. Hot sun glaring down in summer? Ceramic coating fights UV rays. Windscreen iced over in winter? Glassparency Glass Treatment reduces deicing time.
4. 70% reduction in contaminant adherence
Ceramic coating reduces adherence, making your car easy to wash off. Parked under a tree & got sapped? Bird poop all over the hood? When you ceramic coat your car, it reduces the adherence of these contaminants & allow easier wash off.
5. 90% less usage of harsh chemicals
Because ceramic coating allows easier contaminant removal, it also means that you don’t need to use harsh chemicals when cleaning. Just a quick soaping up & hosing down the whole car can already remove most of the debris
6. Retains 90% of original gloss
Cars that leave the showroom shine like no other because they’re still fresh out of the paint shop. But after years down the dusty roads & heavy rain, the paint will begin to look dull. That’s why IGL Coatings ecocoat quartz is a popular choice. It retains the initial gloss that you love from the first day you got your ride.
7. Increases paint hardness by up to 200%
By increasing your paint hardness, your vehicle's paint will be less prone to scratches and micro marring from daily life. Your vehicle's finish will stay scratch free longer and if it is scratched due to daily life, the scratch will not be as deep.
