A car can be a very large investment. This means that you want to protect that gleaming new vehicle parked in the driveway, as much as you possibly can. You make sure that the car is serviced regularly and that the exterior and interior are kept clean and tidy. However, the bodywork of a car is exposed to the elements on a regular basis and can be difficult to protect.
One of the latest developments, when it comes to protecting your car and making it look good, is the application of ceramic paint coating such as Opti-Coat. Applying this type of coating can provide you with several advantages.
Greater protection for your car
You know how easy it is for the exterior of a car to become scratched and dirty. Then you may be faced with having to repair scratches and remove dirt and debris every time you have been out for a drive. Adding a ceramic paint coating to your vehicle provides an additional layer of protection making it less likely that your car will be adversely affected by the environment.
A gleaming exterior for longer
Protection that you add to your car, such as wax, does not last very long. In contrast, ceramic paint coatings last for years. They are not harmed by vibrations from the car or by acidic substances such as bird droppings. It’s also worth noting that once you have one of these coatings in place, waxing your vehicle will be a thing of the past.
Smooth coating remains cleaner
Anything that keeps your car clean for longer is a good thing. This applies to ceramic paint coating. The coating provides a very smooth surface, so it’s difficult for debris to stick to it. You will still need to clean your vehicle but the task will not be nearly as onerous as it once was.
Saving money in the long term
When you consider the cost of applying a ceramic paint coating to your car, you may be wondering how doing so could possibly save you money. The thing with a ceramic coating is that it lasts for years so it only needs to be applied once. If you do not apply a ceramic coating to your car, you will need to wax it at least four times each year, in order to keep it protected and clean. Waxing costs money every time that you do it. This is money that you do not have to spend once there is a ceramic coating in place, as you no longer need to apply wax. This means that over a 4-5-year period it’s likely that applying a ceramic coating will turn out to have saved you money.
There is no doubt that ceramic paint coating on a car looks cool. However, this is not the only reason you should think about applying it. The coating protects your vehicle and makes it easier to clean and maintain.
