Boat Ceramic Coating Services
Paint jobs are always prone to damage, but marine gel coat and paint generally endures a greater amount of wear and tear due to the harsh environments it’s used in. Find out more about why ceramic coating for boats is a great way to protect your investment.
What is Ceramic Coating for Boats?
Ceramic coating is a generic term used to describe a silicon dioxide (SiO2) based glass coating. SiO2 molecules are suspended as nanoparticles in a clear resin mixture of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and other compounds to provide a UV protective barrier that forms a physical bond with the gel coat or paint of your boat. Through the curing process, the ceramic coating hardens to form a single-layered, high gloss, and extremely hydrophobic shell encasing the exterior of the boat. This barrier preserves the finish for many years and allows for extreme ease of maintenance when tackling water spots, dirt, and scum lines after your trips to the lake.
At Bob Moses Ceramic Coating, we specifically use Sensha 8-Year Crystal Glow to protect your boat or jet ski from the elements. You invested a lot into purchasing your boat, do not let your beautiful paint job fade out, and protect it with a long-lasting coating applied by a company that will educate you on all maintenance strategies and take care of you if the coating fails.
Why Would I Ceramic Coat My Boat?
You want your boat to keep its shine and luster for as long as possible, and that’s precisely what you get with Sensha ceramic coating. Why waste your time on waxes or sealants that won’t last longer than maybe a couple of months maximum when you could apply Sensha 8-year Crystal Glow to your boat and anticipate many years of protection and ease of maintenance with one application?
Wax vs. Ceramic Coating
- The highest quality wax melts at an ambient temperature of 87℉; ceramic coating has a melting temperature of over 1800℉. Therefore, in areas with extreme heat such as Arizona and Florida your ceramic coat will last, but wax will disappear within the first 48 hours of application above 87℉.
- Wax requires multiple layers to be effective; ceramic coating requires a one-time application.
- If you are waxing your boat on average 4 times a year, which is the manufacturer average written in boat operations manuals, you will either outspend the cost of a Sensha coating within the first 2-3 years of wax or waste an incredible amount of time doing the process yourself.

How Long Does Ceramic Coating Last?
Generally, a Sensha SiO2 glass coating lasts up to eight years; however, depending on several factors, the length of time can be reduced. These factors include: how much sunlight your boat receives, where you store your boat, what bodies of water you take your boat on, and how often you wash and wipe down your boat. While your ceramic coating can handle the regular wear and tear of life on the water, the most important factor is whether or not you keep up with maintenance.
