Car Ceramic Coating - Overview
We all want our cars to look as new as possible and for as long as possible. However, despite our best efforts and intentions to maintain them swirl marks, spider webbing, paint contamination etc. appear on the car’s surface. Ceramic car coating is the solution to these age-old problems. Ceramic car coating is a liquid polymer that can be applied to the car’s interior and exterior surfaces as well as windows and wheels, which bonds with these surfaces and creates a protective layer. The coating provides protection against dirt and stains, marks and also other types of protections- UV resistance, scratch resistance, thermal resistance, etc. It provides a high gloss on the paint surface and due to its hydrophobic nature, it makes cleaning the car easier. Here, we review two different brands of ceramic coating products. IGL Ceramic Car Coatings and Ceramic Pro Coatings.
IGL Ceramic Car Coatings Review
Kenzo is a paint protection with 100% Silica. This leads to better gloss and protection. It can be applied only by certified applicators. It provides a thick layer of coating with high gloss and durable protection to the paint. Some of the important features of the coating are as follows:
Due to the high hydrophobicity of the ceramic coating, dust, pollutants and most contaminates will only sit on top of the coating and will wash off easily. They do not get bonded or attached to the car coating and hence are easier to wash and remove. It will allow the pollutants to damage the paint surface.
As it contains 100% silica, it gives a high gloss. The application by trained professionals and good quality product provides high gloss to the car that will out last any wax or polishing products. Ceramic Coating for Cars
Swirls can appear on the paint surface of a car due to improper washing techniques and cars that are poorly maintained. These swirls do not allow the light to properly pass through and hence the car paint appears dull and faded. Because of its scratch resistance properties IGL car ceramic coatings guard against these paint imperfections and maintains a flawless finish that keeps the car in a showroom like condition day after day and year after year.
Protection against Bugs and Bird Poop Bugs and bird droppings can be extremely acidic and very dangerous to the painted surfaces of any car. If these elements are left for an extended period, they will damage the paint causing etching and possible oxidation. Because of IGL’s ceramic car coating and its high chemical resistant nature, bird poop and bugs are no longer able to damage the paint because it can not penetrate through the car’s new ceramic paint protection. It’s like a force field for your car.
Ceramic Pro Ceramic Car Coatings Review
Ceramic Pro is a permanent ceramic car coating which provides high gloss finish, hydrophobic effect, scratch resistance, thermal resistance and UV resistance to the car. Due to the hardness of the ceramic coating, the Ceramic Pro coating ensures that dirt and pollutants do not stick to the surface and makes cleaning the car easier. The super hydrophobic effect will result in water to bead down the paint surface along with the dirt. The anti-graffiti resistance ensures that no one is able to write on the paint surface and ensures protection against scratches resulting form graffiti.
Ceramic Pro San Diego coating forms a permanent bond with the car surface and it can not be washed away or broken down. It also provides an option of adding additional layers to increase the thickness of the coating for better protection and resistance of the paint. The product provides oxidation and corrosion resistance, which protects the car paint and body against rust and erosion. The Ceramic Pro can be applied only by trained professionals.
So which is the better Ceramic Coating?
The IGL coating provides higher gloss compared to Ceramic Pro 9h. It also has better hydrophobic properties relative to the Ceramic Pro coating. IGL coating forms a harder layer and provides superior paint protection than the San Diego Ceramic Pro. It also is more effective in controlling scuff marks, etching and swirl marks on the paint’s surface. Overall, the IGL ceramic car coating is a better choice over Ceramic Pro coating and we are sure you will see it too.
