Is Ceramic Coating a Car REALLY Worth It?

Ceramic coating is usually considered an upgrade compared to daily car washes and monthly waxing. It’s a permanent coating and functions as the surface of your vehicle’s paintwork. Most people apply ceramic coating because it’s a premium wax alternative, gives a glossy appearance, and provides superior protection to their vehicles painted surfaces.

Some people don’t think a ceramic coating is necessary, but there are some benefits to consider. Here are five reasons why your car needs ceramic coating:

  1. Protection from Environmental Factors

Ceramic coating can prevent your vehicle from certain environmental exposure that causes paint to fade or look dull. Every time you use your car or park it in the sun, you expose the paint to UV rays. After a while, this causes the paint to oxidize, leading it to lose its luster.

Ceramic coating can protect your vehicle from UV rays and keep your paint looking bright. It also works to protect your vehicle from other environmental factors like salt, sand, and moisture.

  1. Protection from Chemical Stains

A vehicle’s paint can often bond with pollutants. By adding a chemically-resistant coating, you can keep some contaminants from bonding with the paint. The result is that your vehicle will gain some resistance to chemical staining and etching.

As long as you remove the contaminants in a timely manner, the ceramic coating will protect your vehicle from chemical stains.

  1. Easy to Clean

The ceramic coating repels water, making it easier to clean the vehicle. Contaminants will have a harder time sticking to your car, so a quick car wash could be enough to clean your exterior. Elements like mud and grime are also easier to wash off your vehicle since they won’t bond to your vehicle as easily.

Ceramic coating also doesn’t wear off every time you wash your car. The polymer doesn’t wear out easily and provides a long-lasting coat.

  1. Glossy Aesthetic

You can achieve that shiny new car look with ceramic coating. A fresh coating will bring out the color and enhance the reflective properties of your car’s paint. The clear coat will give your vehicle a glossy finish and restore it to look brand new. With ceramic coating, you’ll never have to apply wax again for the lifetime that you own your vehicle. We offer lifetime preventive maintenance for the vehicles painted surfaces.

Before applying a ceramic coating, you may want to repair any scratches and correct any paint problems. Since a ceramic coating sits on top of the paint, it’s essential to fix any cosmetic issues first to ensure a clean look.

  1. Long-Lasting Paint Protection

Other paint protection methods, like waxing, don’t last as long as a ceramic coating. It can last for years despite exposure to weather and other conditions. At Bumpers Etc., our top-shelf, high gloss 9H ceramic coating has an 8-year warranty on used cars.

However, the ceramic coating won’t protect your vehicle from all cosmetic issues. While it could help protect against small scratches, more serious scratches and chips can still occur.
