Ceramic coating, glass coating advertised throughout the internet; invading your visual domains. Each claiming theirs to be the best choice. But do you understand the full effect of it?
Car paint, like human skin, is porous. Environmental influences and acid rain infiltration will lead to rust, water marks and corrosion. With the increment in purchase price of their rides, drivers placed a higher demand on their aesthetics too.
The Past life of Paint Protection Coating
Early in the days, mineral wax was the hype of the car beauty industry and which later went into glazing, in fact, glaze still belong to the wax family, but it is in purer form than the natural mineral wax, more adhesion, better hydrophobic quality.
Later, the car care manufacturers found out that the Japanese Shinkansen N700 travelling on the high-speed rail at 300 km look like new, and surface unscathed.
After research, they realised that the coating on N700 can reduce air friction and lower down the occurrence of static electricity, they also learned that the main ingredient is polyurethane.
Researchers found that Polyurethane create a hydronic bond and absorb the external energy and reformation of the hydrogen structure. The polyurethane layer provides a high degree of mechanical wear resistance and flexibility, which create a highly elastic polymer chain.
It is this discovery that rewrites the history of car beauty.
What exactly is Paint Protection Coating?
In 2004, SONAX first proposed the terms – “Paint Protection”.
Paint Protection is composed of a compact structure, stable performance of the polymer molecules, forming a smooth, transparent and durable hard protective layer, which can isolate the air and the car paint surface.
Like a layer of stealth armour for the paint, it provides a reliable paint sealing technology, it is efficient and durable; this protective layer prevents the environment impact affecting the paint.
The protective layer form a layer of a strong polymer network, filling the pores on the car paint. Filling up the porous nature of the painted surface will deliver a flat surface and achieving mirror effect.
Many car groomers in order to increase their sales spread inaccurate views and remarks, resulting many owners wasting a lot of time and costs. Not only did it not achieved their desired results, the vehicle also suffered unnecessary damages.
Let EA Detailer de-myth the wrong understandings about paint protection coating.
- Anti-scratch ≠ Car will never be scratched again
While it is true that paint protection coating does indeed enhance the hardness of the paint, it does not mean it is unbreakable. Some manufacturers advocate their product as an “once and for all” solution which is scientifically totally irresponsible.
- After coating ≠ No longer need regular care car
Perhaps your car paint has been coated but the lack of attention to the regular maintenance care will shorten the life span.
It is recommended that short maintenance sessions should be conducted once every 3-6 months; this is to remove the layer of oxide resting on the paint surface. These sessions will maintain the brightness and glossiness of the paint.
- After plating ≠ no car wash or car wash
This is one of the most hyped myth – once your vehicle is coated, you never have to wash your car again. The effects of environmental factors, acid rain and other oxide substances if allowed a long stay on the paint will reduce the effect of coating.
Does a New Car Need to be Coated?
You will need to groom your vehicle properly for the first time in order to remove the original wax that comes with the vehicle which after that you will want to top the layer with a PPS and it can reduce the damage to the original car paint.
Does an Old Car Still Need Paint Protection?
For vehicles, more than 3 months old, it must be paint corrected prior coating. This is to remove the oxide layer and paint flaws, the coating can then be better combined with the paint, which played a better protection effect.
Why Should You Protect the Original Car Paint?
The original paint coat is conducted in the absence of any contamination; the formation of high temperature baking offers strong resistance to corrosion and is extremely durable. The moment you send your vehicle to re-spray; the facilities offered by a 3rd party vendor won’t have the standards of the factory outfit. This will generally cause a degrade in the quality delivered. Hence, protection to the original coat is of pinnacle importance.
The advantages of Ceramic Coating
Ceramic Coating is a formation of an extremely fine Nano-particles hydronic bonded to the original car paint, in comparison to conventional waxes and glaze – it greatly extends the protection to the original paintwork.
Ceramic Coating also improved the depth of the paint, enhancing the hardness and toughness of the paint to prevent scratches and improve hydrophobicity.
Taking into account the trinity of any PPS – “flexibility”, “toughness”, and “brightness”, our Ceramic Coating offers not only strong but a flexible network of ceramic-structured polymer coating.
