How to Care for Nano Ceramic Coating

August 25, 2020

We get it. You love your vehicle. Whether it’s a car or truck, you get the best service money can buy. You’ve added upgrades like aftermarket car audio, performance parts, custom rims and tires, and more. It makes sense that you would want to protect your investment with Nano Ceramic Coating, keeping your car or truck spotless and shrugging off damage and corrosion. But once you have Nano Ceramic Coating applied, that doesn’t mean you can stop caring for your car. In fact, the coating needs special care to keep it looking and working great. Here’s what you need to know.

1) Let it Cure

Once applied, Nano Ceramic Coating dries in about 48 hours. However, for the first 2-3 weeks, give the coating time to rest and cure. During this time, don’t park it under trees that are shedding foliage or dripping tree sap, and don’t let substances like bird droppings or pollen sit on the car in hot weather.

2) Wash Once a Week

While Nano Ceramic Coating sheds water and dirt, there are still contaminants that can build up on the coating, affecting its performance and shine. For best results, wash your car once per week. To avoid water spots and streaking, wash out of direct sunlight. Dry your vehicle completely with a high-quality microfiber towel, but don’t wipe aggressively. Instead, allow the towel to absorb the water. And, most importantly, avoid mechanical, automated car washes.

3) Clean the Interior, Too

If you have Nano Ceramic Coating applied to the interior of your car, for best results you should clean the surfaces each week. Vacuum carpets and upholstery regularly, and wipe up spills as soon as possible.

4) Get a Maintenance Package

To keep protecting your vehicle the best it can, your Nano Ceramic Coating needs its topcoat reapplied four times per year. We recommend getting a maintenance package that includes professional detailing each month, plus regular topcoat applications. Nano Ceramic Coating is an amazing treatment that can add life and looks to your vehicle.
