If you want your vehicle to look as amazing as it did the day you drove it off the dealer’s lot in Southern California then consider having our Jade Ceramic Coating applied. Without a ceramic coating despite your efforts of maintaining and washing your vehicle’s exterior, the paint will begin to become full of car wash swirls, dull and even could fade from the sun and of course the abuse it takes from the ocean’s salt water mist.
Anything and everything is constantly attacking your vehicle’s surfaces. Mud, dust, road debris, polluted rain, environmental fallout, water spots, nasty brake dust, fire ash and the grime that starts sticking to your vehicle almost immediately after cleaning it. Let’s face it, having to wash your vehicle can be monotonous and time-consuming. Remnants of the Pacific Ocean salt mist, tree sap and bird droppings doesn’t help either!
Even automatic and hand car washes can scratch and mar your paint, the chemicals used are horrible for the paint because they contain high concentrations of surfactants and alkaline. Not to mention everyday typical scratches from kids, shopping carts, bikes, and scooters. Keeping your vehicle waxed adds a fair level of shine and gloss, and a small amount of protection, BUT wax only lasts a few months at best. Due to the warm climate of Orange County wax will dissipate quickly on any vehicle’s surfaces.
Originally formulated for the oil and aeronautics industry, the technology has now rapidly expanded into automotive, all because how effective it really is. It will reduce the amount of time spent washing and cleaning your vehicle and also cut down on the amount of times you need to wash your vehicle per month. Our Jade Ceramic Coatings are simply the very best in the industry!
The easiest way is to understand Ceramic Coatings are to think of them as a second layer of skin, or a sacrificial layer of invisible protection covering your vehicle’s clear coat paint. Our Jade Ceramic Coatings utilizes nanotechnology, which are essentially tiny particles that form a very fine, thin layer completely invisible to the eye. Because these particles are so small, when applied to a surface, they seal all the pores making the surface hydrophobic (water-repellent), and also resistant to UV rays, micro scratches, chemical spotting, extreme heat and even anti-graffiti. This layer of protection is completely invisible but hard as nails!
Our Jade Ceramic Coating forms a semi-permanent bond on a vehicle’s surface, resulting in a ‘sacrificial’ layer that will not easily wear away from washing or rain, or break down over a short period of time. In fact, usually, it lasts years. Our Jade Ceramic Coatings repel dirt and water like nothing else, which makes them much easier to clean. Their hardness (9H) helps to prevent swirl marks and marring from basic hand washing. Bling Bling Detail King offers a two year and four year Jade Ceramic Coating. We also offer Jade Glass Coating protectant.
These are coatings that must be applied by trained and certified professionals. Jason McBride, owner of Bling Bling Detail King here in the OC is certified through Detail King, in Pittsburgh PA, which is one of the country’s very few Jade Certified Training Centers. The use of the paint correction equipment and expertise makes the cost a little pricey, depending on your budget. On the very low end, you can expect to pay at least $495 for just the ceramic coating application on a brand new car. The professional preparation and paint correction could add a few hundred to several hundred dollars based on the amount of paint correction that the vehicle needs and the size of the vehicle.
An important feature of a Ceramic Coating as mentioned above is that it is hydrophobic. This basically means that water will be repelled instantaneously. When your vehicle is ceramic coated, the incredible hydrophobic effect of the coating will cause water to bead up and roll off the surface along with most dirt, grime, ocean mist or mud (as it has all been unable to bond to your vehicle’s paint). Any remaining dirt on the car can be removed with a lot less effort.
Our Jade Ceramic paint coating works much harder at protecting the surface of your vehicle than an ordinary polish or wax. Rain and water bead up as opposed to accumulating on the surface. Salt mist, grime, bug splatters and bird droppings do not stick to the surface and can be easily removed without scratching the surface. Vehicles often exposed to the sunlight without protection will start seeing the paint look dull and rubbery. This is caused by the sun’s ultraviolet sunrays, which causes oxidation to the car’s paint. By adding a layer of Jade Ceramic Coating, you can dramatically reduce the oxidation effect.
Ceramic coatings or AKA nano coatings works very hard at protecting the surfaces of your vehicle. The new coating bonds with the molecular structure of your car’s paint and cannot be removed by vibrations or external force, meaning it lasts years not months. As mentioned earlier, think of it as an invisible added layer of skin on top of your vehicle’s paint.
Coatings Are Not Scratch Proof
Detailers and detailing suppliers exaggerate about the scratch resistance of Ceramic Coatings, even going so far as to call them scratch-proof or resistant to rock chips which is completely untrue. Light swirls and car wash scratches can definitely be resisted by a Ceramic Coating and the sacrificial layer the coating forms will certainly help against minor incidents that would otherwise mar your surface. For examples; driving through brush, small little impacts from bikes, small rocks hitting up against your paint while driving, kids playing, or cats and dogs jumping excitedly against the car.
Coatings Do Require Maintenance
Ceramically coated cars do require periodical washing and maintenance. A coating will heavily cut down on the amount of washing and maintenance time but not completely eliminate the need for it. The fact is if you are going to drive your car, even if its infrequent, the road is a dirty and the surface is going to gradually get dirtier even with a ceramic coating. It will still require washing, just with a lot less effort and less frequency.
Overall with a ceramic coating, it’s going to be much easier to clean and keep looking showroom new. Additionally, it eliminates the need for waxing every few months, saving a lot of money over the course of the ceramic coatings lifetime. We can provide maintenance washes and maintenance Top Coats or we can offer you a DIY Maintenance Kit for Ceramic Coatings for washing and maintaining your vehicle’s painted surfaces after the coating has been installed.
Coatings Are Semi – Permanent
