How Long Does Ceramic Coating Last in Arizona?

The blistering heat and intense, direct sunlight that Arizona is so well known for can wreak havoc on your car’s paint job. The severe winds and powerful sandstorms don’t help either. 

So how do you keep your car looking showroom new under such harsh conditions?

Since moving probably isn’t an option (And who would want to leave gorgeous Arizona anyway?), the next best thing is ceramic coating. This insanely brilliant innovation will keep your car’s paint job looking great for much longer than the good ole wash and wax routine. It’s much more cost effective too since ceramic coating lasts for years as opposed to months or weeks.

Still, the harsh weather in Arizona has to have some impact on the life of the ceramic coating, right?  

The truth is, it isn’t that bad, especially if you care for it properly. Ceramic coating in Phoenix, Tucson, or anywhere in Arizona is still pretty hardy.

Here’s what you need to know.

Just How Long Will My Ceramic Coating Last?

Ideally, 8-year ceramic coating will last eight years, but often it will last much longer – even in Arizona.

Sensha Ceramic Coating undergoes intense stress tests to ensure its durability and to see how the coating stands up to harsh weather conditions, including the desert like climate of Arizona. These tests put the ceramic coating through some rigorous situations such as high heat, abrasive elements, ultraviolet radiation, and moisture to see how it stands up.

It simulates the degradation of the coating when exposed to these elements in the field.

And it stands up beautifully.

Sensha Ceramic Coating came through all the tests with flying colors. In fact, after 1500 hours of accelerated weathering tests the coating emerged with little to no effect at all. Even the eight-year coating was pristine.

When you take the time and care to wash your car properly, cover it when it is parked, keep it well maintained, and just take good care of the car, the 8-year coating will most likely last for the full eight years. However, you should be aware that the intense heat from the Arizona sun, along with prolonged UV exposure and an extremely dry environment, the effectiveness of the coating can be reduced.

The key is to be aware of your environment and take steps to mitigate the potential for damage. Your ceramic coating in Mesa is probably under more stress than if it were in a more humid, cooler area.

Why is Arizona Harsher on Ceramic Coatings?

The Arizona climate can be intense, especially in some areas of the state. Much of the area has a desert climate which can mean not only sweltering days but also dramatic fluctuations in temperature as temps rise quickly during the day and drop substantially at night.

The already dry, hotter conditions in Arizona, combined with a thinner Oxone layer to filter out UV radiation, create a high-stress situation for ceramic coatings.

Not all ceramic coatings can stand up to this kind of abuse. Fortunately, Sensha can and that is why that is all we use. Our customers deserve the best.

What can I do to Extend the Life of My Ceramic Coating?

People getting ceramic coating in Lake Havasu, Phoenix, Tucson, and other areas in Arizona are well aware of the harsh conditions – and what a beating their coating can take because of it.

The good news is, there are things you can do to extend the life of your ceramic coating. It all comes down to taking a little extra time and a little more care to keep your vehicle’s showroom sheen.

Keep your ceramic coating looking like new by taking these steps to care for your car:

  • Use the washing technique that helps preserve your coating. Don’t wash it for at least a week after you get the coating, allowing it to fully cure. Then use a non-abrasive cleanser and use a soft cloth to clean.
  • As often as possible, park in the shade. If you can park in a garage, that’s even better.
  • Don’t leave dirt or debris on the body of your vehicle, either wash it or use a soft cloth to remove it immediately. Keeping your care clean will go a long way in helping you keep the ceramic coating looking great.
  • Don’t try to apply your ceramic coating yourself. Let the professionals at Bob Moses take care of the job. You can feel secure knowing that our techs are specially trained and experienced, plus you get our great warranty on the off chance that something goes wrong.
