A car is a big expense, right after a house or flat. You buy it for years and want it to serve you as long as possible in the best condition. For this to happen, we need to take care of it properly. You not only have to wash and care for it properly, refuel with the correct fuel and make a car review. It is also significant to protect all surfaces, such as the car body, dashboard, rims, and upholstery. A perfect way to protect the vehicle from damage is a ceramic coating.
What is a ceramic coating, and how does it work?
Ceramic coating is used as an alternative to car wax but differs significantly from it. First of all, it stays on the surface much longer than classic car wax – even several years! The ceramic coating is also much harder and, thanks to that, protects against scratches. It also drains water much better. The ceramic coating is a special solution of a chemical polymer that has protective properties and is used to protect cars and other vehicles from damage. Technology has been known since the 80s but has evolved since then. Currently, it is one of the best methods of securing cars.
The coating is practically invisible when applied to the car but protects like a solid shield and makes it look better. It perfectly protects the vehicle against harmful solar radiation, rain, and snow. It saves the car body and other parts of the car from damage during cleaning with chemicals. It prevents scratches and damage.
How has technology developed in recent years? The invention of Kevlar
Kevlar was created in the 60s in DuPont laboratories and is one of the most significant materials used in the industry. Kevlar is a synthetic material (a polymer from the polyamide group) very resistant to heat and durable. That is why it works well in protecting various surfaces, not only automotive ones. It is also best to secure furniture or cables, as well as for the production of bulletproof vests, skis, and canoes.
Fortador Kevlar Ceramic Coating
Kevlar was known for decades in the automotive industry. But it is relatively new in auto-detailing. Fortador has introduced an innovative solution with Kevlar to the market. Kevlar Ceramic Coating is a very durable and easy-to-apply solution. Thanks to this, it is used both in professional auto-detailing and individually at home. Such a coating guarantees not only the best protection but also the perfect appearance of the vehicle. It works on almost any surface, not only on the body but also on carpets, upholstery, windows, leather, or plastic. Therefore, it is a universal solution to protect the car inside and out. You can easily apply it at home without the risk of damaging the car’s body or other surfaces.
The advantages of the Kevlar Ceramic Coating
- It perfectly protects against harmful weather conditions – UV rays, rain, and sun – which can destroy a car body.
- It protects against pollutions and dirt that could damage or scratch the car body.
- It protects upholstery, leather, and plastic against scratches and damage.
- It protects the glass from scratching.
- It increases the car’s look. It creates a shiny layer on the vehicle that gives it a beautiful appearance.
- It gives a long-lasting effect, up to 2 years, so much longer than car wax.
- It repels water, thanks to which there is no residue left on the car body.
- You can go to the car wash less often.
