If you’re looking for a long-lasting, high-gloss shine for your car, along with amazing, high-tech protection from the elements, Nano Ceramic Coating is a great option for you. This liquid polymer bonds to your car’s surfaces, making it hydrophobic (water-repellent), easy to clean and able to withstand mild damage. Your car can even keep that amazing showroom shine without ever needing to use wax. But how long does Nano Ceramic Coating last? With proper care and maintenance, your coating should last two to five years. If you want to make sure you get to the upper end of that lifespan, here are some maintenance tips from the experts at Tint World®.
Park with Care
During the first two to three weeks after application, your Nano Ceramic Coating needs to cure, so keep an eye on where you park it. Don’t let bird droppings or pollen sit on the vehicle and bake in. Keep away from trees that are dripping sap or shedding leaves, too.
Keep it Clean
Nano Ceramic Coating helps your car shed water and dirt, acting like a permanent coat of wax. But contaminants can still build up on the coating, making it less effective and dulling the shine. You should hand wash your car once a week, out of direct sunlight to avoid water spots and streaking. Dry it completely but gently with a high-quality microfiber towel. Be sure to avoid mechanical, automated drive-thru carwashes.
Get it Detailed
A professional detailing service, preferably the professionals who applied the coating, will know how to care for it best. The professional-grade products used by detailers are second to none, and their experience will be valuable in maintaining your car’s look. In addition, you should get the topcoat reapplied four times per year (once per quarter, or every 3 months).
