What is a quartz (ceramic) coating? 

 
It's a solid, slick and highly self-cleaning silica-based protective layer. A mixture of SiO2 or Polysilazanes with solvents and other, less crucial additives comes in the bottle as a liquid. After application to the surface, the product levels on the porous surfaces of the paint and while solvents evaporate, it becomes first gel-like and finally crystallises to a solid and fully transparent layer. The moisture in the air is one of the main reaction catalysts. This is why both temperature and humidity are crucial during the application and use of IR-lamps is highly recommended afterwards. 

A crystallised layer bonds with the paintwork of the paint and changes it's finish, virtually closing the pores and making the surface smooth, slick and extremely glossy. 

What are the benefits of a ceramic coating?

Self cleaning effect 

A slick and smooth surface repels water, dirt and light contamination. It makes the daily maintenance routine less frequent and quicker. 

Hardness

The vertical hardness and structural integrity of a fully cured ceramic coating largely influences the durability and resistance. The vertical hardness of a coating helps protecting from oxidation caused by UV rays. 

Gloss 

The glass like gloss, a signature touch of ceramic coatings, is incomparable with any other form of protection and a crucial feature for all those, who are mainly after the look of the car. 

Chemical resistance

Full resistance against any chemicals with the ph between 2 and 11. No chemical is able to remove a fully cured ceramic coating (except for body shop paint removers and super-strong solvents). Chemicals with ph 1 or above 11 will not remove the coating, but may affect the hydrophobicity. 

Ceramic Coating F.A.Q.

Here is a list of the most commonly asked questions regarding ceramic coatings:

 

Q.  What is a ceramic coating?

 

A.  A ceramic coating is a protective layer that is applied as a liquid, and after curing, becomes as hard as glass.

 

 

Q.  How long will the coating last?

 

A.  Depending on your choice of coating, results will last between 1-5 years.  Platinum Auto Detailers is the ONLY company in northern Ohio able to offer the 5-year warranty using the Pro Line of Gyeon products.

 

 

Q.  Does the coating protect against scratches?

 

A.  Yes and no.  Ceramic coatings do not protect against scratches, rather, they make cleaning the vehicle much easier, therefore reducing the chances of scratching the vehicle.  Proper washing techniques are still a must to care for the coating.

 

 

Q.  Why don't you offer a lifetime warranty like other companies?

 

A.  We do not believe in using tricky marketing tactics, or making outrageous claims.  Instead we use the best products, that give you the best results, period.  For the "lifetime warranty" from other companies to be valid, you must pay to have the coating re-applied each year.
