What is detailing

In simply put, it’s a top-to-bottom thorough cleaning of your vehicle using specialized tools and products. Car detailing is an extensive process that includes interior and exterior cleaning and restoration of your vehicle. Exterior detailing boosts the cosmetics of your car and shields it against the harsh climatic conditions while Interior detailing cleans the inside structures of the car and improves their resistance against stains and ageing.

Difference between a Car Wash and an Auto Detailing?

Most car owners don’t realize that a car wash and a detail job mean two different things. We can say that car detailing is an advanced version of a regular car wash. Car detailing is more in-depth and time-consuming. A car detailing is not only focused on cleaning the car but also reconditioning and occasional restoration. Detailing a car is to clean it from top to bottom – from power windows to wheel wells to air vents to carpeting, every square inch of your vehicle is thoroughly vacuumed, shampooed, conditioned, and polished.

Most car washes take maximum twenty minutes to go from washing to drying. A car wash can be done by hand or by machines with bristles, soap, and water to clean your car’s exterior.

Ceramic 9H -Paint Protection at its best

This is the most commonly used term in the Car Care industry around the world. The two hardness measuring scales are -the Mohs hardness scale of minerals and the pencil hardness scale.  9H hardness rating is derived from the Pencil Hardness scale. A 9H hardness level refers to a surface coating’s ability to resist scratches based upon the pencil hardness scale. By definition, a 9H ceramic coating is consisting of highly-concentrated compound of Silicon Dioxide or SiO2. Based on the nano-technology, it fills the tiny cracks or imperfections in a porous surface and then hardens to form a flat shield of protection. This is. Let’s hope you have an idea of exactly what 9H is.

To obtain the highest gloss, durability and protection that your car deserves a long-term protection method will be needed. This long-term surface protection can help you to maintain your vehicle’s value and prevent against ageing. Ceramic Coating is a word familiar to most car buyers today.

It helps water speed off the surface taking dirt with it and protects the paintwork from abrasion, marring and UV damage Ceramic Paint Protection is. Some take their new car for applying ceramic coating even before delivery. Ceramic coating is a clear coat whose base is a liquid polymer. When this coating is applied on a car’s body, the polymer in the ceramic compound will form a chemical bonding with the car’s paint. Once applied, this ceramic coating can only be removed by abrasion and not by any chemicals.
