Paint jobs are always prone to damage, but marine 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 nano-coating of SiO2 (silicon dioxide) suspended in a PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) resin that we apply to the exterior of your boat or jet ski. As this liquid polymer dries and hardens it creates a transparent, superhydrophobic layer that will protect the hull of your jet ski or boat from water, dirt and other materials that can quickly break down a beautiful paint job. Additionally, the PTFE present in the bonding resin will help to protect your marine vehicle from UV radiation, further extending the longevity of the paint job underneath.
Here at Bob Moses Ceramic Coating, we use Sensha-World 8-Year Crystal Glow, which will provide years of protection and beautiful shine to your boat or jet ski with the proper care.
Why Would I Ceramic Coat My Boat?
You want your boat to look nice for as long as possible, and that’s precisely what you get with a Sensha-World coating. You can’t protect your paint job forever but adding an extra layer that acts as the first line of defense is a big help. With SiO2 coating, you don’t have to worry about your boat or jet ski looking bad on the water.
Because you don’t have to paint your boat or jet ski as often because of the SiO2 coating, you also save a lot of time and money. All you need to do is keep up with some basic maintenance and your boat’s paint job will be protected for years. These ceramic coatings provide defense against stains, corrosion, oxidation, UV rays, and more.
How Long Does Ceramic Coating Last?
Generally, you can expect your Sensha-World coating to last up to eight years, depending on several factors, including how much sunlight your boat receives and where you store your boat. While your ceramic coating can handle the regular wear and tear of life on the water, the most important factor is whether you keep up with maintenance or not. Taking care of your boat means taking care of your ceramic coating.
How Easy Is Ceramic Coating Maintenance?
Ceramic coating maintenance is simpler than you may think! The most important part of maintenance for these SiO2 coatings is simply washing your boat regularly. Make sure you’re using a soap that’s formulated for cleaning boats and jet skis, as these are made to clean these coatings without destroying the SiO2 that is protecting the hull, and you should avoid washing in direct sunlight for the best results.
