The difference between fact and fiction is not always clear. In the auto aftercare industry, there are many manufacturers that prescribe Liberty Valance's Marketing Effect - "when the legend comes true - print the legend". One of the biggest attractions of the growing automotive nano-ceramic coating segment is its ability to fill in the microscopic imperfections found in paint. But that doesn't mean fixing paint damage.

Car nano ceramic coating is a special product. They can protect and enhance the gloss or matte finish of paint jobs, carbon fiber materials and plastics. But it's important for auto enthusiasts to understand that the myth that do-it-yourself ceramic coating products repair and enhance a car's paintwork is purely fictitious. Heck, even the professional-grade Ceramic Pro 9H coating isn't a miracle. For optimal results, it is recommended to retouch the paintwork or repair the paintwork of the vehicle through polishing.

The fact of the matter is that although yes, a car's paint always looks better after a coat of ceramic paint, the protective coating doesn't do all that most people believe it to be. So, let's dive into the topic - and explain why it's so important to fix any paint damage - from stains to tiny cobwebs or swirls, before applying any paint. Use car wax, paint glue, homemade ceramic coating or professional nano ceramic coating.

What is the purpose of ceramic coatings for cars?

The purpose of ceramic coating, whether you do it yourself or bring the car to the detail for a finish, is to protect whatever surface it is applied to. When applied to porous materials, the nanotechnology in the coating penetrates small scratches and scuffs, leading to the false belief that ceramic coatings will repair your vehicle's paintwork.

Conversely, any large scratches or swirls can be filled by the coating, but visible damage will not be repaired - in fact, the ceramic coating will make defects such as this is more obvious.

Below, we'll explain why ceramic coatings tend to accentuate stains on your car, how you can properly repair swirls and scratches, and how to apply the coating. ceramic coating on recently repaired paint to

reduce the chance of imperfections reoccurring.

Does ceramic coating fill scratches?

The short answer is yes. The property of ceramic coating makes it penetrate the swirls and scratches on your car. However, this doesn't actually repair the finish and doesn't even visually hide damage, unless the damage is extremely minor.

The ceramic coating is completely transparent and microscopic, hence the "nano" in nano ceramics. The idea of ​​this is that the quartz particles inside the ceramic coating are so tiny that they bond together once inside the scratch, but they don't actually bond with the car itself to repair or even fill. it properly, like compound polishing or cutting.

How can swirls and small scratches be repaired in Polish?

 Polish is an abrasive and cuts the clear coat of automotive paint until both swirls and scratches match the thickness of the surrounding paint. Clear paint is removed while smaller scratches are filled with clear residue cut by polishing compound. This technique is often referred to as 'leveling'.

 This is the same as using something like low grit sandpaper to correct the swirl while not damaging the car's paintwork. If you can feel the scratch through your nail, then you should remove the scratch with sandpaper, preferably by professionals with experience in the field of paint repairs, such as a painter. .

 Effect of ceramic coating on your car paint

 Most car owners will say they use ceramic coatings to protect their car's paint from debris, chemicals, harsh outdoor conditions and more. However, there is a difference between protecting the car's paint and repairing the car's paint.

 Since the ceramic coating is for pre-made, it will amplify swirls and scratches after hardening and curing. Imperfection amplification properties also help increase the shine and glossiness of your vehicle's paintwork. This is sometimes called the magnifying effect - where the glass coating essentially accentuates the condition of a coated vehicle.

 Overall, ceramic coatings make taking care of your car's paint easier. Here are some specific things that ceramic coatings do:

 Scratch-resistant: The ceramic coating is scratch-resistant, but not scratch-resistant. The higher quality ceramic coating you use, the more scratch resistant your car's paint will be, while even minor scratches can be fully polished.

 Protection from salt damage : Due to the corrosive nature of salt, it will inevitably corrode the interior of your car whenever it is left on the surface of your car, especially suitable in places have cold weather.

 UV protection: One of the biggest causes of car paint damage is exposure to UV rays from the sun. UV rays emitted by the sun contain a small percentage of the radiation that heats up the surface of your car and corrodes the interior of your car, eventually damaging the surface underneath.

 Corrosion Resistance: Your vehicle is constantly exposed to corrosive materials in the form of chemicals, acid rain, falling birds, bug bites, etc. corrode your car's interior and eventually damage your car's paintwork. The nano-glass coating, unlike wax, provides a hard layer that protects against all possibilities of corrosion.

 Hydrophobic Properties: It can be argued that the most common property of a ceramic coat is its ability to separate water. These are known to have hydrophobic properties. This is the flat, smooth, slippery property of the ceramic coating that repels water and makes it harder for anything to stick to it, such as debris or dirt. Also, this makes it a lot easier to clean, as you can easily wipe anything off the surface without worrying about anything getting etched.



Effect of car ceramic coating on scratches and swirl marks

 Scratches - or thin markings on the surface of your car's paintwork, can be caused by many things, but in principle they are almost the same. It's an etching on a painted surface - on the other hand, it's swirl marks, which are a bit more complicated. These are microscopic scratches that are not visible unless viewed from a certain angle and under certain conditions, such as under light from a street lamp or sunlight.

 Swirling marks are often easier to see on flat surfaces such as the trunk, hood, or roof. They also often appear on doors and fenders. Vortex marks are often amplified on a dark car's exterior, due to the contrast.

 Despite their name, eddies aren't just circular in shape. While they usually appear circular, they can also appear vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.


How are swirl marks created?

In most cases, swirl marks appear after washing the car and drying it with a towel contaminated with microscopic dirt particles or using a used car wash. Therefore, you should use the two bucket method when washing your car.

 One myth is that if you use a microfiber towel, you won't create swirl marks. This, unfortunately, is not true. Although microfiber towels help reduce the chances of swirl marks, they can still appear. Still, it's safer to use a clean microfiber cloth whenever dry-cleaning the vehicle with the undercoat unprotected.

Other common causes of swirl marks include:

  1. Polish or polish with used/dirty pads
  2. Use strong cutting polishing compounds or paint cleaners
  3. Using a dirty polyester topcoat or applicator
  4. Use a duster to dust your car
  5. Wash your car at an automatic car wash
  6. Do not wash the car before washing
  7. Cover your car with a dirty cover

Vortex signs can be prevented?

 The truth is that it is not possible to completely eliminate the risk of swirl marks on your vehicle. However, there are some things you can do to reduce the chances of it happening.

Wash your car thoroughly after washing

 Before drying the car, rinse it thoroughly with clean water. This will remove any extra small debris that could have stuck to your vehicle while it was drying and thus cause swirls or scratches. 

Remove water from your car's surface with a microfiber drying towel

 If you regularly get water on the surface of your car, you should invest in a dedicated microfiber drying towel. If it's perfectly clean, put it on your car and let it do its job.
