Coatings - Teflon vs Ceramic

Have you considered putting a ceramic coating on your vehicle? Do the promises to keep your car's paint finish looking good hold water? Is it a more effective method than waxing and polishing? How does it compare to the benefits of using a paint protection film (PPF)? Is it genuinely worth the money?

We're sure you've asked similar questions before, only to be left even more perplexed. On occasion, the amount of contradictory information on the web can be irritating. That's why we've decided to get rid of them for good.

CERAMIC COATING FUNDAMENTALS

We understand. You want your automobile to appear great all of the time and are willing to do anything that is both effective and long-lasting.

You've tried everything from daily cleaning to monthly waxing to remove those scrapes, stain marks, filth, grime, and other blemishes. Yet, despite this, they return the next day with extra swirled lines from all the washing.

So you come up with another idea. A method that, with just a little regular care, will make your automobile appear like new every day. Something that protects against chemical modification and oxidation on a one-time basis: you apply it once and forget about that for Introducing you to ceramic coating, the enchanted automobile potion that everyone is raving about. 

What about the sceptics? What are the sceptics who question its validity? Is what the detractors claim about ceramic coating true?

Is it truly the most excellent way to keep dirt and filth out of your car? Let's see what we can find out.

WHAT IS CERAMIC COATING, AND HOW DOES IT WORK?.

A synthetic polymer solution placed on the exterior of a car to protect it against external paint damage is known as an industry-grade ceramic coating. It's usually applied by hand and mixes with your car's paint, adding an extra layer of hydrophobic protection. The factory paint job on the automobile is unaffected by these chemical reactions and the formation of a new layer. While many vehicle enthusiasts and even detailers assume that ceramic coating substitutes transparent film (paint protection film), it substitutes waxing. The primary goal is to keep dirt, filth, and stain marks off the paintwork, which would harm the clear coat.

Depending on the coating and kind of polymer employed, ceramic coating, also known as nano-ceramic coating, is a lasting or semi-permanent answer to your issues. It does not degrade in normal air circumstances such as rain or summer because of its chemically inherent features.

It's getting a lot of buzzes. So, what more would it do for your automobile?

ADVANTAGES  OF CERAMIC COATING

You can make a robust solution out of anything that comprises chemical ingredients. On the other hand, ceramic coating is both durable and easy to maintain once applied. Aside from the obvious, there are a few different reasons to use it in your vehicle.

PROTECTION AGAINST HARMFUL ULTRAVIOLET RAYS

You can only imagine the devastation that the sun's damaging UV rays may cause to the paintwork on your automobile. Your car's paint will be protected against oxidation, fading, and having a dull appearance with a ceramic coating. If you leave your car outside, this is necessary.

‍PROTECTION AGAINST CHEMICALS

Chemical stains caused by acidic pollutants in the air are another source of possible automotive harm. These pollutants will not be able to the paint if a coating is applied. Ceramic-coated ceramic is tremendous comfort in a city where air pollution is rising.

NATURE OF HYDROPHOBICITY, CLEANING EASE.

Washing your automobile becomes a pain when it gets to waxing or other sorts of cleaning. You won't be worried about the polymer fading off with ceramic coating. (Removing it entirely, by the way, necessitates a cleaning and wet-sanding operation.)It not only blends in with the paint of your automobile but also repels water. This implies that any water-based dirt or filth would form on the top and ultimately slip off. After a simple jet wash, you'll have a pristine, ageless vehicle.

GLOSS THAT LOOKS LIKE CANDY

This is where all automobile owners will appreciate the looks. The ceramic coating adds shine and depth to your automobile's paint, much like car film. It will give your auto a gleaming finish, bringing out the finest in the original Gloss That Looks Like Candy. This is where all automobile owners will appreciate the looks. Much like car film, the ceramic coating adds shine and depth to your automobile's paint. It will give your auto a gleaming finish, bringing out the finest in the original colour.

However, when it comes to advanced protection, there are still some fallacies and erroneous information floating around. The following are some of the most frequent ceramic coating misconceptions.

There are several things that a ceramic coating can't perform.

Every product on the planet has flaws. It's up to us to decide whether they're deal-breakers or not. These aren't precisely flaws; they're simply elements that ceramic coating can't guarantee.

PROTECTION AGAINST SCUFFS AND SWIRL MARKS OF ALL KINDS

Scratches, swirl scars, and gravel pellets are dangers that a ceramic coating won't protect your automobile from. It preserves the qualities of paint despite its mixing abilities. As a result, you still should expect these typical, unwelcome components to find their way inside your vehicle.

WATER-REPELLENT PROTECTION

Water-based pollutants will form on your car's surface following the coating of ceramic coating, as previously stated, and finally glide off. However, organic minerals and soluble particles will remain on the top after the water evaporates. Ceramic coating will not remove the watermarks that occur from this, necessitating a far more practical learning approach.

ELIMINATE A NEED FOR CAR WASHES

You'll still need to wash your automobile regularly. A ceramic coating does not grant your car the ability to self-clean.

TEFLON COATING 

Teflon Coating, which is also popularly known as Paint  Protection Coating, is a treatment recommended by many dealerships and car detailing shops to ensure the longevity of the paint. These coatings form a protective layer over the paint and give it more gloss and shine. Teflon is a chemical form of synthetic fluoropolymer that is non-sticky and reduces friction on which it is applied. It also enhances the paint’s ability to prevent corrosion or wear and tear in extreme temperature conditions.

TEFLON COATING PROCESS

Following is the process of applying Teflon coating on the exterior of a car-

The entire car surface is washed and cleaned thoroughly to get rid of any dust particles

The car body is wiped properly and dried completely

Teflon coating is applied over the entire car body in a lubricated form

After the applied layer is entirely dried in, say, 15-20 minutes, the car is polished by a car buffing machine to an immaculate glossy finish

The process of buffing takes more than 30 minutes, and it 

even removes minor scratches if done properly

ADVANTAGE OF TEFLON COATING

Applying a coat of Teflon on the car body has multiple advantages, which are as follows-

The most apparent advantage of applying Teflon coating is that your car's paint will have a beautiful shine as soon the process of using it is completed.

Also, unless the coating of Teflon isn’t applied correctly, even the minor scratches in the paint will disappear.

Teflon coating also acts as a paint protection film by forming a layer over the car’s paint that prevents minor scratches. While most new-age cars come with a high gloss paint finish, applying a coat of Teflon should further make the car look pristine for longer.

Finally, applying a coat of Teflon will even increase the life of the paint, provided the application is repeated every few months.

WHY IS TEFLON COATING BAD?

First things first, there is nothing ‘bad’ about applying a coat of Teflon to your car. However, there are some negatives associated with the entire process through which many get the coating applied to their Vehicles.

However, it has been observed that many workshops take customers for a ride by merely waxing and machine polishing the vehicle in the name of applying a Teflon coating. Also, the polishes such as erratic car detailing shops are not related to Teflon and, hence, don’t have the same benefits.

Therefore, many times, it is seen that vehicles owners feel cheated as the inferior treatment used does not provide the benefits associated with Teflon coatings. The shine given by non-Teflon products is comparatively short-lived. Unfortunately, the unsuspecting customer never realizes that he has been short-changed and ends up failing to realize the benefits of Teflon coating.

IS CERAMIC BETTER THAN TEFLON?

Before we tell you if the ceramic coating is better than Teflon coating, you need to understand that the latter costs roughly Rs 5,000 to Rs 7,000, depending on the size of your vehicle. In comparison, prices of the ceramic coating start at around Rs 18,000 and go all the way up to Rs 35,000 as per the size of your car and the same package you opt for.

Therefore, if you are looking for a pocket-friendly paint protection treatment, Teflon is probably your safest bet. However, getting a ceramic coating treatment for your vehicle will be a better option if you look at the bigger picture. While getting a ceramics coating will be expensive, it will be far more durable and even offer more protection from minor scratches, dust, corrosion, etc. It’s also more resistant to harsh weather and even acid rain.
