Wax VS Ceramic Coatings

Wax is a great way to protect your vehicle’s paint. It has been a trusted go-to formula that works great as long as regular washes are maintained.

If you are looking for a better protection besides wax, A ceramic coatings may be for you. The shine gained from ceramic coatings is unbelievable and must be experienced to be believed. How? One of the answers lies in the hyrdrophobic value of this product. The term “Hydrophobic” has to do with the water contact angle of the surface. The higher the angle, the less dirt or liquid will attach to the surface. Rather than a drive in the rain equaling a car with dirty water spots, it means your vehicle will look newly washed with virtually no dirt.. every time it rains. What’s better is that this effect will last many years if maintained correctly.

Over time, wax will break down and require more coatings ( a good coat of wax is usually good for 6-12 months). Ceramic coatings is not paint protection, wax or paint sealant that will wash away or break down over time. Technically they are a nano-ceramic coating that forms a permanent adhesion to the paint and can only be removed through abrasion. NO chemical can dissolve the coating.

The strength of ceramic coatings is rated at “9H” according to the pencil test. This test is used in the coating industry to determine a mineral’s hardness, and 9H is the highest on the scale. The coating will stay hard for a lifetime if maintained correctly. This permanent adhesion protects against scratches, UV rays, corrosion, heat, and more, not to mention the extreme gloss that the ceramic coating provides!
