Why It’s Important to Maintain Your Nano Ceramic Coated Cars
Nano ceramic coating is slowly gaining popularity among car owners. In fact, people are starting to drop their regular routine of taking their cars to waxing and starting to move on to the latest technology of nano ceramic coating.
People attest how shiny and brand new looking their cars come out after the application of coating. They’ve also seen how durable the surface of the car becomes, that it seems to be scratch resistant.
While all these benefits may be great, there is a misconception people have on nano ceramic coated cars. Some people think that once their cars are coated there’s no need to go to the lengths of maintenance. They couldn’t be more wrong. Maintenance is an important part of extending the lifespan of the coating.
Here are a couple of tips on how to maintain the ceramic coating of your car.
1. Be diligent in washing your car at least twice a week or whenever necessary.
Dirt can build up on your car overtime. This happens whether your car is kept under a car cover or a garage. When this happens certain contaminants may pass through the coating layers and damage the topmost coating layer which has the highest grade of hydrophobic effect. When these contaminants damage this layer, the car’s surface may lose its hydrophobic property.
2. Use the Rinseless Wash or Two-Bucket Method.
Keeping the surface of a car clean is important in maintaining the gloss and shine of nano ceramic coated cars. Most people find washing as tedious and messy. This makes the rinseless car wash the perfect alternative. All one has to do is dip a microfiber bone sponge in a bucket of water that’s mixed with the rinse less solution, and start cleaning the surface of the car one panel at a time. After application of the solution, the next step is to wipe it off gently using a microfiber towel. Note that a grit guard insert is also a recommended tool for this method.
For dirtier surface, the two-bucket method is the recommended technique. The two-bucket method, as the name suggests, is just using two buckets when washing off the dirt on the surface of the car. The first bucket contains water and solution and is used to soak the wash mitt. The second bucket contains water and grit guard and is used to clean off dirt from the mitt.
People prefer these two types of cleaning a car’s surface because they’re economical methods – they save on water, and because they’re easy to do.
3. Refrain from washing your car under direct sunlight.
A lot of people think that it’s alright to wash their cars under the heat of the sun. They might think that the sun might help in easily drying out the water from the surface. This is a terrible idea. Nano ceramic coated cars are already hydrophobic. This means that water and soap or any solution would easily slide off of the surface. When the car is washed under direct sunlight the process of drying is accelerated. And this might cause soap residue to stick to the coating.
The best time to wash a nano ceramic coated car is at daybreak or during sunset.
The Importance of Maintenance
Nano ceramic coating provides your car with that extra gloss and durability that you desire. It’s true that it gives the surface hydrophobic and scratch-resistant properties, but we must keep in mind that this doesn’t mean that nano ceramic coating makes the car’s surface invincible. It has to be maintained.
Over time your car will lose its hydrophobic effect without proper care. When this happens, water and mud won’t easily slide off of the surface as it used to. This is why it’s important to take your cars to MaskPro outlet for your 6 months periodic maintenance so that proper care can be given to your car before the hydrophobic property wears off.
At MaskPro, we provide our customers with free maintenance once every six months so long as the warranty is in effect. That means an additional layer of coating is applied to maintain the hydrophobic property of the surface. You won’t have to worry about maintenance at all.
