Ceramic coating is a non-metallic, liquid material used to coat cars with small molecules that create tight covalent bonds forming a hydrophobic shield to make it resistant to natural elements like acid rain, UV rays, and bird droppings.
Because ceramic coating creates a protective layer on top of a car’s paint, it can help prevent some scratches and repel mud, bird droppings, rain, ice, UV rays, and other harmful elements that may leave streaks or spots.
Caliber’s three-step process begins at the front of the wash tunnel with a specialty cleaner to ensure no contaminants are sealed in during the wash process and to flatten soap bubbles for a better clean and wax adhesion. Cars are then treated to underbody washes, triple foam and other cleaners before receiving step two, which includes a leveling agent to fill in any small paint imperfections and to increase shine. This is where the coating is technically applied. The last step of the Triple C process includes a drying agent to increase hydrophobic properties so water and liquid bead up while you’re driving your vehicle. This prevents contaminants from sitting on your paint job/the coating. After all, the longer liquids like bird droppings sit on a car, the longer they have to eat away at your paint job or coating layer.
