Ceramic Coating: is it only work for car wheel protectors? Have you ever wondered about applying ceramic coating on your vehicle? Do these claims of it retaining your vehicle’s paint job also hold true? How well does it fare against the benefits of a paint protect film (PPF)?
Ceramic Coating For Cars – Understanding The Basics
A lot of vehicle owners, enthusiasts and car repair shop techs are of the opinion that applying a wax to your vehicle is a much better way to protect it from the ravages of the elements. Although they are correct in their assumption that a wax has certain advantages over a paint job, it is important to remember that they are not the only advantages. If you think a wax only works on cars with shiny and lustrous paint jobs, you are mistaken. Waxing can also do wonders on older, dull-looking vehicles with stubborn grease and dirt on them. Waxing can make a car look like brand new, if not exactly shiny and gleaming, but at least it gets rid of all the grease and dirt that make the paint job look old and drab.
On the other hand, a car owner who is just starting to delve into the world of protecting his or her vehicle from the elements must be wary of using a paint protector that only provides a layer of protection. Such layers may look good on a picture or printed poster, but only when they are applied to a car that is already protected by another layer of protection. To be able to achieve a proper ceramic coating layer, you need a high quality protective film with a thickness ranging from four to six microns. Only then will you get true ceramic coating protection.
