If you’re a car enthusiast or new car owner, you know the importance of protecting your vehicle’s paint. But with so many options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one. That’s why we’re here to introduce you to the best of both worlds: Paint Protection Film (PPF) and Ceramic Coating.
Self-Healing Technology, this means that if you receive a small scratch or chip in the film, the heat from the sun or simply a splash of boiling water can cause it to “heal” and become almost invisible.
What is Paint Protection Film?
Paint Protection Film (PPF) is a transparent, thin film that is applied to the surface of your car to protect it from scratches, chips, and other forms of damage. It’s an excellent option for those who want a low-maintenance solution for their car’s protection. But did you know that combining PPF with a ceramic coating takes protection to the next level?
Ceramic coating is a form of liquid nanotechnology that creates a protective barrier on the surface of your car. It adds extra shine and protection to your paint, making it more resistant to water spot oxidation, chemical contamination and fading.
One of the most incredible benefits of the paint protection film is its easy maintenance. Our PPF won’t yellow or crack over time, and because it is resistant to UV rays and other elements, you can trust that it will continue to protect and enhance your car’s appearance for years to come.
Some of our clients choose to protect their vehicle’s more impact-prone areas with our Paint Protection Film (Bumper, Fenders, Bonnet and Headlights). But, at the same time, they want the rest of the vehicle’s paint job to be sealed with our coatings to add extra gloss levels and a chemical barrier. The best thing? You couldn’t see the difference between the PPF and the coating applied! Remember, our Paint Protection film is virtually invisible and blends in with your factory paint.
Not only does the combination provide superior protection, but it also saves you time and money in the long run. Instead of waxing and maintaining your car frequently, you can wash it and enjoy its showroom-quality look. And if you ever experience any damage, the PPF will protect your paint, ensuring you won’t have to pay for expensive repairs.
Clear bra technology has come a long way in recent years, with modern PPFs providing excellent protection while remaining virtually invisible. Once installed, the clear bra provides a barrier highly resistant to impact, heat, and UV radiation.
Our shop uses the highest-quality PPF available, and our team of skilled technicians are trained to install it with precision and care. We understand that your car is more than just a mode of transportation – it is an extension of your personality. That’s why we take pride in delivering the best PPF installation services possible, so you can enjoy your car with peace of mind knowing that it’s protected by the best.
Why Should Ceramic Coating my vehicle?
Nanoceramic coatings have become increasingly popular in recent years because they provide long-lasting protection to a vehicle’s paintwork. At the forefront of this technology is our own coating, which boasts a rich content of SiO2 (over 87%). But what is SiO2, and how does it compare to other coatings like graphene and Teflon?
SiO2, or silicon dioxide, is a compound of silicon and oxygen atoms. It is commonly found in nature as quartz and is known for its hardness and durability. In nanoceramic coatings, SiO2 acts as a barrier against environmental contaminants and UV rays, helping to prevent damage to a vehicle’s paintwork.
Compared to other coatings like graphene and Teflon, SiO2 offers several advantages. In addition, graphene coatings have lower chemical resistance than a SiO2 coating, which means they may not hold up as well against harsh chemicals and environmental pollutants. On the other hand, Teflon coatings are known for their water-repellent properties, but they can be easily scratched and do not provide the same level of protection as SiO2 coatings, wear out relatively fast and require more frequent reapplication (top-ups).
Our Nano ceramic coatings are specifically formulated to offer long-lasting protection, with warranties for hydrophobic properties ranging from 2 to 10 years, depending on the specific product used.
Enter Hydrophobic Properties
Hydrophobicity is a term used to describe a surface’s ability to repel water. Hydrophobicity is a desirable trait in the context of nanoceramic coatings because it helps prevent water from adhering to a vehicle’s paintwork.
Our SiO2 coating boasts a high level of hydrophobicity thanks to its unique chemical composition. The coating’s SiO2 molecules form a tightly-bonded layer on the surface of the paintwork, creating a surface that water and other liquids cannot penetrate. Instead, water beads and rolls off the surface, taking dirt and other contaminants.
The importance of hydrophobicity in a coating cannot be overstated.
Water and other liquids carry harmful contaminants that can damage a vehicle’s paintwork over time. By repelling water, our SiO2 coating helps to prevent these contaminants from adhering to the surface of the paintwork, making it easier to maintain a clean and pristine appearance.
Have you ever seen round grey water spots you can not remove from your paint? Calcium build-up eats into your clear coat, making it almost impossible to remove unless you are an experienced detailer and have the skill and practice to do it without damaging your factory paint. This is where having a Sio2 Hydrophobic Coating will be a game changer for your vehicle.
In addition to its hydrophobic properties, our SiO2 coating provides long-lasting protection against UV rays and other environmental contaminants. Our coating can last for years with proper maintenance, giving peace of mind and saving vehicle owners the time and expense of frequent paint correction and detailing. Our Nanoceramic coatings’ durability is partly due to the inherent properties of SiO2, which provides a highly resistant barrier against contaminants and UV rays. In addition, unlike other coatings that may deteriorate or break down over time, our SiO2 layer maintains its protective properties for an extended period, ensuring your vehicle remains well-protected against the elements.
Plus, with a range of warranties and application costs available to suit all needs, you can have confidence in the long-term durability of our SiO2 coating.
