Less money spent on wax

Best gloss and shine
Not only does tough seal ceramic coating protect your car it helps to make it shine just like brand new!

Ceramic Coating Alkimos Myths - The Truth About Ceramic Coating Paint Protections
Ceramic coatings do protect your car and WELL! However, some companies boast what they can do and today we will explore and talk about some of the myths about ceramic coatings.
Myth 1: I don’t have to wash my car they are fully self-cleaning with the coating.
This is something we have been asked so many times and we now make sure to explain this to anyone looking into ceramic coating. Yes, the ceramic coating will make your car stay cleaner longer and make washing your car much easier, but you must still wash your car.
If you don’t over time the water-repelling and beading protection from the coating will be less effective. Unfortunately, there is no protection that will mean you won’t have to wash your car.
Myth 2: My car won’t get scratched anymore with a ceramic coating
Now this one is a common misconception especially when you see scratch resistance on the list of benefits. It is so important to know that ceramic (or at least Though Seal) will help prevent scratches, but there are many kinds of scratches to take note of:
- Swirl marks are noticeable in direct sunlight: Swirls look like spider web lines on your paint and are caused from anything that touches your paint. Wash mitts, sponges, a chamois, drying towels, brooms and brushes – all these tools will cause swirls to some degree.
- Small scratches: if you walk past your car with a bag that has some metal on it, or a zipper on a jacket. These kind of scratches can be reduced, obviously if there is too much pressure behind this it will mark the car.

Myth 3: Will my ceramic coating peel off when it breaks down?
This is something that freaks people out about ceramic coatings. After seeing their old Camry of Commodore have paint flaking off and the clear coat peeling off, especially living in Perth and salt in the air breaking down paint faster than normal.
Many people that have spoken to us were worried that the ceramic coat would do the same once it starts to break down.
Thankfully, this is totally not the case! A ceramic coating forms a thin yet incredibly strong bond on top of the clear coat. It will not flake off like a thick layer of clear coat will.
When maintained, ceramic coatings are without a doubt the best form of protective coating available. Come in and chat to our team about our Tough Seal range of Ceramic Coatings.
