Ceramic coating is the result of advances in Nanotechnology and remains at the cutting edge of automotive protection technology with constant advances and improvements throughout the years. Ceramic bonds to paint, glass, metal, and plastic at a molecular level, effectively becoming a functional element of the vehicle’s surface. This coating’s hard hydrophobic, glass-like finish helps to protect your vehicle from weathering, UV-damage, industrial and organic fallout, acids, alkalines, light wash-marring and abrasion for up to 2-years whilst making it easier to clean than ever before. If you find maintaining your vehicle’s beauty a challenge, it’s time to experience the CQuartz legend for yourself...
Q & A:
1. Approximately how many microns will (1) coating of Ceramic add to the paint? Between 1 ~ 2 microns
2. Can Ceramic be applied to single stage paints of any age? This depends on the paint type. There are many different types of single stage paint. If it’s very old it may remove some of the paint. We tested on acrylic paint and it didn’t work so well. Remember this is not to replace clear coat. Clear coat has 20~30 microns minimum.
3. What temperatures will Ceramic withstand before failing? Watch tthe flame resistance video on car paint below. At approximately 1500 to 1800 deg. paint would peel from the vehicle. See the video below, It’s really impressive and shows how well Ceramic is bonded to paint.
4. What about other coatings claiming to last forever? First, there are no other products on the market that have been tested and show actual research to prove thickness and durability claims. Like the age old saying goes, "nothing is forever" the same is true for your clear coat just like ANY ceramic coating. Ceramic can last many years IF MAINTAINED PROPERLY but none last forever and if they claim they do you may want to choose another product that has research and professional support within the detailing community like Cquartz rather than marketing gimmicks and hype.
