Solitaire ceramic coating is now the new trend in Detailing Industry, not just in India but across the world too. First, let’s understand what ceramic coating is? Ceramic coating is also called as Glass Coating, Quartz Coating, and Nano Coating. Ceramic coating is a suspension of Silicon Oxide (SiO) in a proprietary resin that cures and oxidizes as Silicon Dioxide (SiO2). Silicon Dioxide has a Mohs (Mohs is a scale used to measure hardness) hardness of 7 and a melting point of 1610 degrees Celsius. Some coatings contain variations of polymers and Silicon Carbide (SiC) to alter the installation methods and hardness of the coating.
It’s very useful when its come to Indian whether for example when we celebrate Diwali, Holi and another festival our car paint somehow affected with different elements. which is not healthy for your car and for you. but solitaire coating protect your car all around the year.
The term “9H” is abused big-time these days by the ceramic coating brands, and may even have “9H” on their product name itself as a way to confuse and attract more customers. Most of these “9H” coatings offer “Lifetime warranty” and “scratch-proofing” but severely failed to protect the paint from even swirls (swirls are a circle like scratches seen on paint surface due to improper cleaning) But solitaire coating always did it professionally.
These are another hypes created in the market, those brands introduced a year back in the Indian market also claims “Lifetime warranty” in Indian condition! A coating (or any paint protection) which can stay to maximum 2-3 years is ideal for Indian condition; paying anything beyond is non-practical in India.
So, what to be done on this Diwali?
Any coating which is not properly done or properly maintained will not last more than few months, so find a genuine detailer (like cozicars studios) who uses the products and follows all the process religiously as suggested by the manufacturer and get your coatings done.
Surface preparation is very important in the coating and directly impact the durability of the coating which cozi cars always make sure to be done it properly. So make sure this Diwali you give your car best protection with the longest durability.
