Why choose a Ceramic Coating or a Wax to protect your paint work.
Brake dust, dirt, grit, mud, salt, and road grime all contribute to our cars looking dirty. When our cars are dirty we take them to be washed, whether that’s at the local car wash or hand wash or maybe you or your children wash them.
Swirls marks, spider webs, etching, webbing, scratches, and marring are all marks in your paint work that can easily occur due to a bad washing technique. Under sunlight or bright lights these marks become much more visible as fine scratches and can make the car look unattractive and can be removed by machine polishing.
A good quality ceramic coating will easily outlast most waxes. The ceramic coatings I offer can protect your paint work for up to 5 years, where most waxes may protect your paint work for a few months only.
If you have no protection on your car paint work then the brake dust, dirt, grit, mud, salt, road grime, tar, iron filings, bugs, tree sap, bird droppings can very easily damage your paint in one way or another.
A surface coated with a ceramic coating will stay cleaner for longer as dirt and grime will not stick to it, it will also be easier to clean because the surface and the super hydrophobic effect of the coating causes water to bead up and roll off taking the dirt with it. Ceramic Coating can be layered which can give added depth of protection.
Some car owners prefer Waxes; however waxes won’t give the same protection or longevity as ceramic coatings. Bug splatter or the acid contained within the bug can eat through the wax coating in hours; rain can then spread even more of the bug’s acid on your paint work. You can imagine what would occur if you had no protection at all on your car paint. The car would be much harder to clean as it would take much more effort than a car protected by wax or ceramic sealant with its hydrophobic effect. The car without protection would probably have swirls marks, spider webs, webbing, scratches, and marring in some form or another.
