What Is A Ceramic Coating?
Ceramic car coatings are the newest paint protection solution in Lehigh Valley to help you keep your vehicle cleaner, shinier and looking brand new for years to come without the need of time-consuming tasks such as waxing or polishing.
No matter what they’re called, most ceramic coatings such as Nanolex, Ceramic Pro, Ceramic Pro and Gtechniq contain silicon dioxide which is more commonly known as silica and if you don’t know anything about silica, we have a little secret for you…it’s also found in Quartz which has a Mohs scale of hardness rating of about 7 out of 10. Now that’s hard!
It’s the incredible hardness that enables coatings to resist swirl-marks and scratches that would otherwise ruin your finish.
Every coating manufacturer including Ceramic Pro, Gtechniq, Nanolex and Opti-Coat have their own proprietary mix but essentially they mix liquid ceramic with silicon dioxide and sometimes even titanium dioxide to create a clear flexible barrier between the environment and your car’s paint.
Ceramic coatings then bond chemically to your clear-coat via a covalent bond which ends up being the strongest type of bond in nature which allows coating to last for many years. Waxes on the other hand, don’t bond to your paint, they just sit on top of it which requires car owners to constantly reapply wax to keep their paint protected.

Why Choose Motorcar Paint Protection To Install Your Ceramic Coating?
We strive to deliver the best ceramic coating service and results in Lehigh Valley and Pennsylvania. As part of this commitment, we’ve been trained to install Nanolex Si3D from the high-performance German manufacturer Nanolex. This training ensures you will receiving the full potential, protection and durability of your coating.
You see, because coatings bond chemically to the paint, it is paramount that the clear-coat be fully decontaminated to ensure nothing can interfere with the bonding process.
To do so, our trained technician uses an alkaline wash to strip your paint of any oil or old wax that could have a detrimental impact on the coating installation. We then use a clay bar to remove physically embedded contaminants such as brake dust and tar.
We then usually follow with a paint correction which consists of mechanically polishing the paint to remove any imperfection such as swirls and scratches. This step ensures that the ceramic coating is installed on a flawless paint since we wouldn’t want to have scratches and swirls noticeable under the coating.

6 Reasons Ceramic Coatings Help You
Coatings keep your paint cleaner, longer and make washing your paint easier.
Because of their hydrophobic and self-cleaning properties, coatings makes harder for dirt, dust and other contaminants to stick to your paint. As a result, your paint stays cleaner in between washes, meaning you will need to wash your vehicle less frequently.
This will also make washing your vehicle much easier as the anti-stick surface will do most of the work.
A barrier against staining and chemical etching.
Acid rain, bird drops and chemical fallouts have a corrosive effect on your paint and can easily leave stains. Coatings with their incredible hardness and chemical resistance provide superior protection against staining and etching over traditional wax and sealants.
Even with a coating, it is still important to remove bird drops and other corrosive contaminants as soon as possible. But your coating will allow you drastically more time to remove contaminants before they start staining your clear-coat.
UV and oxidation protection.
Over time, UV rays cause clear-coat oxidation and discoloration. This cause your paint to “fade” over the years. Coatings provide total protection against UV rays, meaning your paint will not fade once installed.
Durability measured in years not months.
As mentioned above, coating use a covalent bond to stick to your paint, this bond is extremely durable and hard to seperate. Depending on the coating you choose to opt for, they will last in general for 2 to 10 years.
On the other hand, waxes last anywhere from 2 to 4 months and polymer paint sealant can last from 6 to 9 months.
Ridiculous gloss and shine.
Once cured, coatings create a flat and hyper-reflective surface. This causes light bounce of your paint to create a permanent wet look that will make head turns. And that gloss doesn’t fade, after each wash you will have the impression that your paint was freshly waxed!
Helps reduce swirl-marks and light-scratches.
There’s a myth that ceramic car coating protect against scratches, this is false, if you put a key against a coating, it will leave a mark. However, because of the improved hardness of a coating over clear-coat, it will help minimize some of the lighter scratches such as swirl-marks.
