Ceramic vehicle coatings, or Nano coatings are quickly becoming all the rage in Calgary’s automotive aftermarket. They represent the newest technology in paint sealant and paint surface protection.
Ceramic coatings are very different than PPF (Paint Protection Film), as they do not protect your vehicles surface from rock chips or road abrasions. They are simply intended to prevent oxidation or corrosion on the painted surfaces and keep your paint looking good for much longer.
A nonmetallic, inorganic coating made of sprayed aluminum oxide or of zirconium oxide, or a cemented coating of an intermetallic compound, such as aluminum disilicide, of essentially crystalline nature, applied as a protective film for temperatures above 1100°C.
Ceramic coatings also give your vehicle a superhydrophobic surface, helping to prevent adhesion of dirt and oxidation from the road.
Ceramic Nano coatings are applied much like a typical automotive wax where the entire vehicle’s surface is first cleaned with a claybar to remove anything that might prevent adhesion. After claybar, the vehicle is wiped down with a pure alcohol solution. After the surface is perfectly prepped, the ceramic coating is applied slowly, with pressure, with an applicator pad. After application is allowed to cure for a certain time, the product is buffed to a mirror finish.
