Most car owners don’t think twice about applying wax to their car’s surface. This is car care 101 for protecting the paint. What about the windshield? This part of the vehicle can benefit from a coating of its own. We suggest an auto glass ceramic coating.
What Is Glass Ceramic Coating?
Glass ceramic coating is a clear coating made from nano-ceramic. After application and curing, the substance becomes a tough yet flexible solid shield. Glass ceramic coating also exists for the paint, though this post focuses on the coating for the windshield. In recent years, auto glass ceramic coating has become a standard in vehicle detailing.
Ceramic Coating Benefits
Why does the windshield need a protective barrier in the first place? The benefits are three-fold.
For one, the coating improves visibility, especially during rainy weather, by repelling raindrops. Second, the coating makes the glass easier to clean. Dirt and grime lightly cling to the surface instead of becoming encrusted into the glass.
Finally, the coating makes the windshield as a whole appear “cleaner.” Have you ever stepped back after cleaning the car and notice the windshield has streaks or just looks off? A ceramic coating makes this a nonissue; when you apply the coating, the nanostructure fills in any visible imperfections in the glass.
What About DIY Glass Ceramic Coating?
You can find glass ceramic coating kits at your local Pep Boys. However, application requires multi-stage preparation, such as buffing, claying, and keeping the surface clean while curing. If any of the steps go wrong, it can hamper the end results.
