Protecting your car’s paint job is a top priority, and ceramic coatings can take the hassle out of it. So, how long does a good ceramic coating last?
Here at Bob Moses Ceramic Coatings, we use Sensha-World’s 8-Year Crystal Glow, which when cared for properly should last you the full 8 years. The SiO2 (silicon dioxide) suspended in a PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) resin hardens into a superhydrophobic layer that is extremely durable, on a molecular level.
It is important to understand how maintenance and other factors may affect the life of your ceramic coating. Keeping up with ceramic coating maintenance and storing your vehicle in a safe place will help you get the longest life out of your Sensha-World coating.
Extend the Life of Your Ceramic Coating
To prolong the life of your Bob Moses Ceramic Coating on your car you will want to wash your car at least once every two weeks. You will want to use a soap made specifically for vehicles, as these typically don’t contain chemicals that could harm your paint job.
If you want your Sensha-World coating to last, if possible, make sure you’ve got a good spot to park your car. Ideally, you should park your car in a garage where pollen, dust, and bird droppings won’t build up and bake into the coating. This is especially important in the first couple of weeks after your SiO2 coating has been applied.
Your wheels get a lot dirtier than the rest of your vehicle, because of not only the contact with the road but also all the brake dust that builds up through regular use. Even worse, this brake dust is made up of microscopic metal shards, which can easily eat away at the silicon dioxide coating and expose the metal underneath to the elements.
Use separate mitts and wash buckets to wash the body of your vehicle and its wheels. You want to do this in order to not risk damaging your ceramic coating with brake dust. There are also special polishes and cleaners made for wheel use, and our team will be able to help identify the best option for your car.
