What is Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic coating is a liquid polymer applied to the exterior of a vehicle. This coating chemically bonds with the vehicle’s factory paint, creating a layer of protection. It guards against environmental contaminants, UV rays, and minor scratches, keeping your car looking pristine. At Enhanced Gloss, we use Surpass Ceramic Coatings, known for their durability and superior protection.

How to Care for Your Ceramic Coating

Proper care is essential to maximize the benefits of your ceramic coating. Here are our top tips:

1. Regular Washing

Washing your car regularly is crucial to maintaining the integrity of the ceramic coating. Use a pH-neutral car shampoo to avoid stripping the coating. At Enhanced Gloss, we recommend washing your vehicle every two weeks.

2. Avoid Automatic Car Washes

Automatic car washes can be harsh on your vehicle’s surface, potentially damaging the ceramic coating. Opt for hand washing or use a touchless car wash instead. Our experts at Enhanced Gloss provide professional hand washing services to keep your coating intact.

3. Use the Two-Bucket Method

When washing your car at home, use the two-bucket method. One bucket should contain soapy water, and the other should be filled with clean water for rinsing your wash mitt. This prevents dirt and debris from scratching the surface of your car.

4. Dry Your Vehicle Properly

After washing, dry your vehicle using a clean, soft microfiber towel or a heat blower. Avoid letting your car air dry, as this can leave water spots and diminish the appearance of the ceramic coating.

5. Avoid Parking Under Trees

Sap, bird droppings, and other contaminants from trees can harm your ceramic coating. Whenever possible, park your car in a garage or under a carport. If parking under trees is unavoidable, make sure to clean any contaminants off your car as soon as possible.

6. Use a Detail Spray

To enhance the longevity and shine of your ceramic coating, use a high-quality detail spray. This adds an extra layer of protection and keeps your car looking its best. At Enhanced Gloss, we offer a range of recommended detail sprays suitable for ceramic-coated vehicles.

7. Schedule Regular Maintenance

Even with the best care, your ceramic coating will benefit from professional maintenance. Schedule regular check-ups with our team at Enhanced Gloss to ensure your coating remains in optimal condition. We offer maintenance packages tailored to your needs, keeping your car protected year-round.
