If you’re looking for a way to keep your car, truck or SUV looking like new, contact the team at Prestige Car Audio and Marine in Metairie and ask about high-quality ceramic coating solutions. Unlike waxes and glazes, ceramic coatings last from one to nine years to enhance the look of your vehicle. The coatings not only protect your paint from stains and light scratches, thanks to its hydrophobic properties, but it also makes it much easier to keep your car clean. Let’s look at why a ceramic coating is a great investment.
What Is an Automotive Ceramic Coating?
Unlike waxes that come from trees, ceramic coatings are engineered in a lab to provide amazing durability and protection. Coatings like the Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra protect your paint finish with a durable layer of protection that lasts up to nine years. The top layer of the coating has a hardness of 10h – making it among the most durable in the industry.
Before we start, our team will inspect your vehicle and let you know what it will take to prepare your paint for the coating application. If your car is new, this may be as simple as a wash, decontamination and single-stage polish. If your vehicle is older, we offer full paint correction services that will remove swirls and scratches to restore the appearance of your vehicle. Once the vehicle is ready, we work in small sections to apply the ceramic coating and buff the surface smooth.
Why Should You Invest in Ceramic Coating?
Keeping your vehicle looking like new means keeping it clean. The hydrophobic properties of a ceramic coating allow water to carry away dust and debris from the paint surface. Both base and acidic contaminants like tree sap, bird droppings and bug splatter are easy to remove with a soft microfiber cloth and lubricants like Gtechniq Quick Detailer, or W5 All-Purpose Cleaner for tougher stains. Because it’s easy to keep your vehicle clean, you don’t need to inflict damage to the paint surface with harsh sponges or, heaven forbid, a car wash.
Ceramic coatings not only keep the paint finish looking great, the UV blocking properties of the coating will help maintain the color of the paint by slowing the fading process. This UV protection is particularly beneficial for red vehicles.
Quality Coating and Impressive Longevity
Depending on your needs, our team can work with you to choose a coating that will provide the longevity and protection that meet your needs. We use only high-quality coatings from Gtechniq. We’ve tried other brands, seen how easy (or difficult) they are to install and experienced their longevity and performance. We never take shortcuts with our clients because we know they deserve the best.
Don’t be fooled by hardware- and auto-parts store spray-on ceramic coatings. They don’t offer the same protection or durability as our Gtechniq coatings.
