To Do or Not to Do? Ceramic Car Coating

Nothing turns heads in a street but a shiny highly polished car. It can be parked, stalled, or stuck in traffic. It attracts attention because the colour stands out. On a bright shiny day, it can even shimmer like glass. And guess what, it does not matter if it isn’t a Mercedes Benz S-class or Tesla. As long as your car is shining, shimmering and splendid, you will get those ogling eyes and craning necks to check out the driver. Now, if you have not experienced that, you might want to consider getting a ceramic car coating. This new waxing technique elevates waxing to a whole new level. 

This coating system uses a special type of chemical (silica and titanium dioxide) manually applied by professionals to your car by nanotechnology. Besides giving your car added value, it gives extra protection that lasts for at least ten years, as long as maintenance instructions are followed. 

Here are its promises:

  1. Scratch protection

Car dings and scratches can tick any car owner off. When you take so much care in opening your car door so it does not hit another car or the wall, but when you come back, you notice a dot of white on your door when your car is red! Aargh! 

A ceramic coating will give your car’s finish a glass-like barrier that gives your car super protection from damages like dings and scratches. That’s peace of mind right there!

  1. UV Rays protection

Australian hot sun can wreak UV damage on your car. Constant exposure to the UV light can penetrate your car to the metal. This causes that dull finish after a few years. Damage from the sun also causes your car paint to expand that opens small pores. These are the gateways for saltwater to get in and once that salt combines with metal, you know what happens. Rust happens. 

The ceramic coating gives your car the essential layer to protect it from UV light and saltwater damage no paint nor wax can provide. 

  1. Hydrophobic 

Slow down, slippery when wet. That is a piece of good advice for drivers. But did you know that more accidents happen during light rain than on heavy downpour (70% wet pavement and 46% from rainfall)? And one more thing, light rain is bad for your car’s finish too. It is not true that hard rain and water pools give your car a good outer and under wash. Revving your car as you pass a pool of water cannot match the pressurized water’s action of removing hardened mud and grime from your car. It is best to wash your car after rain. It will remove splatters of grease and mud and will protect your car’s paint.

Ceramic car coating provides a water-repellant feature to your car. Acid rain ruins a car’s paint finish. The hydrophobic feature of ceramic coating also allows rainwater to just slip and slide through your car’s exterior. Very convenient in the rainy season and hard rainfalls when your car wiper had to work double-time to clear your vision.


Car maintenance goes beyond preventive maintenance schedules and vacuuming. It extends to keeping your car’s exterior polished and protected.  A vintage car costs a premium for a reason. With all the benefits that a ceramic car coating gives, how can you lose? Get it done and get it done professionally. Go to a trusted car detailing studio and as you come home, wait until your wife says, “You bought a car without telling me?”
