Keep your vehicle's paint looking like new for years to come with ceramic coating. As well as protecting your paint against UV rays, rain, and dust, it adds a layer of shine that will make your vehicle stand out. Here's a step-by-step guide for applying ceramic coating to your car.
Step 1: Preparation
Preparing your vehicle's paint is the first step in applying ceramic coating. Wash it thoroughly to remove dirt, grime, and other contaminants that may interfere with the coating's adhesion. After washing, let the vehicle air dry or use a clean, soft towel to dry it.
Step 2: Paint Correction
Prior to applying the ceramic coating, it is best to perform a three-stage paint correction. This process involves removing any swirls, scratches, and other imperfections in your paint, so that the ceramic coating can be applied evenly and effectively.
Step 3: Surface Preparation
It is necessary to prepare the surface for ceramic coating after paint correction. This involves using Iso-Propyl alcohol that will help to remove any oil residue left from the Polishing product.
Step 4: Apply Ceramic Coating
After the surface has been prepared, the ceramic coating can be applied. A professional detailer will have the tools and expertise to do this correctly, but you can also do it yourself if you're confident. Apply the coating evenly to the surface with a foam applicator, taking care not to leave any spots. It is best to work in sections, applying the coating to one section at a time.
Step 5: Cure Time
After applying ceramic coating, it's important to let it cure for a specified period of time. Ceramic coatings require different curing times, so follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer. During the curing time, it's important to avoid washing or touching the surface as this can interfere with the curing process.
Step 6: Final Inspection
Once the ceramic coating has cured, a final inspection is necessary. If everything looks good, your vehicle is now protected with a ceramic coating that will keep it looking like new for years to come.
As a result, ceramic coating protects your vehicle's paint and keeps it looking like new. The process can be done by a professional, but you can also do it yourself with a little patience and attention to detail.
