Whether you’re driving along the beachfront, through the city, or in the scenic countryside, having your car looking pristine during the summer months is a must.

This article explains how ceramic coating can make your car look its glimmering best and detail exactly what ceramic coating does to make it look so good.



What is ceramic coating?



A ceramic coating is a mixture of nanostructured silanes and siloxanes that when hand-applied, chemically bond to the paint or glass. Ceramic coatings protect the surface from chemical and UV degradation as well as offering a level of scratch resistance. Gtechniq have a range of chemically bonding coatings that are quartz-based through to composite coatings, each offering varying levels of protection and durability.


Ceramic coatings are much more durable than traditional waxes and polishes. You can check out the full range here.


How does it make a car look?


Thanks to the protective layer the coating forms, your car will be better protected against elements such as road salts, acid rain, UV rays, and many other common environmental factors you might face.


Therefore, your car is likely to end up with far fewer micro-marring scars, the tiny scratches you occasionally spot on your car’s surface. This, in turn, will keep your car looking in excellent condition for longer and increase its eventual resale value.


All Gtechniq’s range of coatings are resistant to chemicals between pH 2 and pH 13, and make ongoing washing and maintenance a breeze, so you can spend more time driving and less time cleaning.

What else should I know? 


Ceramic coating doesn’t absolutely guarantee that cars will remain scratch-free, nothing does, but it goes a long way to help your vehicle maintain its very best condition.


Gtechniq coatings are formulated to be applied at home, but we recommend this is done in a garage or covered area for best results. Once applied to the surface Gtechniq recommends leaving the coatings to cure for 12 hours before exposing your vehicle to the elements.


If you prefer to have the coating installed professionally, Gtechniq has a nationwide network of installers that can carry this out for you. All Gtechniq Accredited installers have fully covered and insured workshops, giving you complete peace of mind that your vehicle is in safe hands. You can find your local installer here.
