Ceramic coating has become a choice coating for car owners due to its long-lasting nature, durable shine, and the extra layer of protection it provides. It is a better investment than regular waxing, so you want it to last as long as possible. 

Here at Eye Candy Coatings & Care, we apply professional-only ceramic coatings that last 2-5 years. The coatings may even last longer, depending on maintenance. Here’s a look at more details about ceramic coating, how long it lasts, and how you can prolong its life.

What is Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic coating is a chemical solution composed of organic polymers, titanium, and silica dioxide nanoparticles. The compounds bind with the paint, forming extremely hydrophobic properties that repel water and enhance the paint’s shine and clarity.

How Long Does it Last?

Ceramic coating lasts 2-5 years, depending on how well it’s maintained. Several factors determine how long it lasts:

Preparation before Application

A car must be cleaned thoroughly, and the paint correction steps followed before applying the coating. Failure to follow these steps causes the coating not to bond well with the paint, wearing out quickly.

Go for Car Detailing

Occasional car detailing is critical to keeping ceramic coating in tip-top condition. Be sure to visit experts who are well-versed in car detailing to get the best results. Eye Candy Coatings & Care experts are experienced and use professional products that prolong the life of the ceramic coating.

Allowing the Coating to Cure

The curing process is critical to extending the life of the coating. The process lasts two to three weeks, and during this period, it’s best to park the vehicle in a safe space. Avoid areas that expose the vehicle to large amounts of dirt, bird droppings, or pollen.

Protection from Harsh Weather Conditions

Extreme weather conditions cause the coating to expand and contract frequently. As a result, the surface develops cracks that allow water to seep through, eventually causing the coating to wear out over time. Regular maintenance goes a long way in minimizing the effects of harsh weather.

Working with a reliable car expert like Eye Candy Coatings & Care also goes a long way in ensuring the coating lasts long. Contact us today for more tips on how to take care of your car’s ceramic coating.
