Never Wax Or Polish Your Car Again – Have Us Coat It!

What is Automotive Ceramic Coating?

The simplest way is to understand Ceramic Coatings are to think of them as a second layer of skin, or a sacrificial layer of invisible protection covering your vehicle’s clear coat paint. Our Jade Ceramic Coatings utilizes nanotechnology, which are basically tiny particles that form a very fine, thin layer completely invisible to the human eye. Because these particles are so small, when applied to a surface, they seal all the pores in the clear coat making the surface hydrophobic (water-repellent), and also resistant to the sun’s UV rays, micro scratches, chemical spotting, extreme Florida heat and even graffiti.

This layer of protection is completely invisible but hard as a rock! Our Jade Ceramic Coating forms a semi-permanent bond on your vehicle’s surface, resulting in a ‘sacrificial’ layer that will not easily wear away from general car washing, rain or the salty mist from the Atlantic Ocean. In fact, usually, it lasts years. Our Jade Ceramic Coatings repel dirt and water like nothing else, which makes them much easier to clean. Their hardness (9H) helps to prevent swirl marks and marring from basic car washing. Detail King Express of North Huntington, PA offers a three year, five year and 7 year Jade Ceramic Coating. We also offer Jade Glass Coating protectant Wheel Protectant, and Trim Protectant.

What Does Ceramic Coating Do For Automobiles?

An important feature of a Ceramic Coating as mentioned above is that it is hydrophobic.  This basically means that water will be repelled instantly. When your vehicle is ceramic coated, the amazing e hydrophobic effect of the coating will cause water to bead up and roll off the surface along with most dirt, dust, grime, ocean mist and sand (as it is unable to bond to your vehicle’s paint). Any remaining debris on the car can be removed with a lot less effort when washing.

Jade Ceramic coating works extremely hard at protecting the painted surfaces of your vehicle than an ordinary polish or wax. Rain and water bead up as opposed to accumulating on the surface. Salt mist, grime, bug splatters and bird droppings do not stick to the surface and can be easily removed without scratching the surfaces. Vehicles often exposed to the sunlight without protection will start seeing the paint look dull and rubbery especially in Florida’s sunny climate. This is caused by the sun’s ultraviolet sunrays, which causes oxidation to the vehicle’s paint. By adding a layer of Jade Ceramic Coating, you can dramatically reduce the oxidation effect.

Ceramic Coatings or also known as nano coatings works extremely hard at protecting the surfaces of your vehicle. The new coating bonds with the molecular structure of your vehicle’s paint and cannot be removed by vibrations or external force, meaning it lasts years not just months as most waxes and polishes do. As mentioned earlier, think of it as an invisible but hard added layer of skin on top of your vehicle’s paint.

What Does Ceramic Coating For Vehicle’s Not do?

Ceramic Coatings Are Not Scratch Proof

Car Detailers and detailing suppliers brag about the scratch resistance of Ceramic Coatings, even going so far as to call them scratch-proof or resistant to paint chips which is not true. Light swirls and car wash swirls can absolutely be resisted by a Ceramic Coating and the sacrificial layer the coating forms will certainly help against minor incidents that would otherwise mar your car’s surface. For examples; driving through brush, small little impacts from children’s bikes and scooters, small rocks hitting up against your vehicle’s paint while driving, or pets jumping up excitedly against the vehicle.

Ceramic Coatings Do Require Maintenance Ceramic

Coated vehicles do  require periodical washing and maintenance just like any protected painted surface. A Jade coating will drastically cut down on the amount of washing and maintenance time but not completely eliminate the need for it. The fact is if you are going to drive your vehicle, even if its infrequent, the road is a dirty and the surface is going to gradually get dirtier even with a ceramic coating. It will still require washing, just with a lot less effort and less frequency. Detail King Express Auto Detailing of North Huntington offers hand washing and ceramic coating reboot services. Just ask us more about our Express Ceramic Coating Maintenance services. With a ceramic coating, it’s going to be much easier to clean and keep your vehicle looking showroom new year-round. Additionally, it eliminates the need for waxing or polishing every few months, saving a lot of money over the course of the ceramic coating’s lifetime. We can provide maintenance washes and maintenance Topcoats, or we can offer you a DIY Detail King Maintenance Kit for Ceramic Coatings for washing and maintaining your vehicle’s painted surfaces after the coating has been installed.

Paint Correction Polishing

Detail King Express of Greensburg is the go-to paint correction polishing provider in Westmorland County. Your car’s paint encounters many environmental hazards that can rob it of that glossy, showroom finish. With our professional paint correction carried out by our team of trained certified polishing experts, you can have confidence in your vehicle’s paint restoration. To ensure the perfect finish on your vehicle, we follow the industry standard for best practices with paint correction. If you want your vehicle to be coated it may need Step 1, Step 2 or all 3 Steps below performed prior to the installation of a ceramic or graphene coating.

Heavy Defect Removal

(Step 1)

This Service Includes

The first step is heavy defect removal, also known as cutting or compounding. It includes the actual paint correction process and should be done by only a trained and certified expert detailer. Depending on the level of defects, the process involves using two types of Rupes polishing machines. These can either be rotary buffer or dual action polisher. Rotary machines are needed to remove heavy defects like deep scratches and swirl marks. On the other hand, a dual-action polisher is required when removing mild to moderate imperfections. We at Detail King Express are fully equipped with both types of machines.

Paint Correction Process

(Step 2)

This Service Includes

This process focuses to bring the painted surfaces as close to perfection as possible. The success of this procedure depends on how thorough this step is executed. In addition, it makes the final step easier. This process is performed with a Rupes dual-action polisher paired with a medium-cut buffing pad including a compound or polish being applied. Our trained certified paint correction experts will work a small section to ensure that the best pad and compound selection is being used. With the desired results, we will continue to refine the outcome and repeat it as many times as needed until that desired result is accomplished.

Final Polishing

(Step 3)

This Service Includes

Also known as jeweling, our trained and certified paint experts will polish out the paint. They do this to improve the gloss and clarity of the painted surfaces. We use a special Rupes Finishing foam pad with fine ceramic approved polish paired with a Rupes dual action polisher. We do this for every inch of each body panel one at a time. We reinspect the paint to ensure that no polishing residue remains for that ultimate result. After this step, the painted surfaces will be ready for the ceramic or graphene coating installation.
