A nano-coating basically provides a strong, protective surface to the car’s body that can block all manner of foreign matter and prevent them from causing damage to the car. On any given day, a car has to endure a variety of attacks to its body, from accidental scratches to mud, dirt and other contaminants that are an inescapable part of the road. The nano-coating ensures that the original coating of the car is encased in a protective layer that can withstand a great deal of damage without showing any ill-effects on the body of the car.
A ceramic paint coating goes much further than an ordinary paint job for protecting the surface of the vehicle. The new coating is fused to the surface of the automobile and is not dislodged by vibrations or external force. Whereas traditional vehicle coatings, such as wax, wear off over time when exposed to the weather, acidic components of the atmosphere and bird droppings, nano-coatings last for years.
The more pitted a surface, the easier it is for dirt to find tiny pockets to sink into. As the name suggests, nano-coating works at the molecular level to ensure that the coating provided is extremely smooth and even. This means that even when the dirt comes in contact with the coating, it finds no place to stick to, and simply rolls off the surface. Because of this property of ceramic coatings, most of the contaminants that they encounter on the road will be unable to stick to the surface of the car and will fall away, leaving the surface in its initial pristine state.
Getting a car waxed was the older equivalent of getting a special coating for your car to protect its surface. The problem, of course, is that the wax sealant provides less protection, and eventually wears off, which means a fresh coat needs to be reapplied several times a year. On the other hand, a single coating of either Ceramic Pro or Opti-Coat Pro+ ensures that you never need another wax job – ever!
It may seem at first glance that having a ceramic coating installed is cost-prohibitive but take another look. Since wax lasts only 1 to 3 months, it needs to be reapplied at least quarterly. You’ll spend about $200 four times a year for a good wash and wax. That’s $800 per year. Over 5 years you would spend $4,000 for quarterly waxing. Since a professional ceramic coating is essentially permanent if maintained properly, it would require a single application over the average lifetime of vehicle ownership. If you never have to wax your car again you would save money. If you invest $1500 for a premium ceramic coating for your car, you would save $2500 over 5 years, compared to quarterly waxing.
For vehicle enthusiasts, choosing between one car maintenance option that provides better protection, and another that improves the car’s appearance would be a tough decision to make. Fortunately, nano-coating allows the owner to opt for both. Not only is the car surface protected, but the fresh coating yields a shiny, sleek exterior that retains its gloss over a much longer period of time.
