Glass coating vs ceramic coating
There are several car coatings on the market. As a result, many terms are thrown around to sometimes even describe the same product. A summary of the different coatings: Glass coating, ceramic coating, nano coating & Teflon coating.
All these coatings have almost the same properties.
- UV protection
- Extra shine
- Hydrophobic, water resistant
- Dirt, insects, etc., do not adhere, making them easy to remove.
- Stays longer
What is the difference between glass coating, ceramic coating & other coatings?
Some coatings have a hardening time of 24 hours for optimal effect. Ceramic and glass coating in particular have this.
Ceramic coatings use ceramic, Silicon Oxide (SiO2) and are used in ceramic glaze. Also an ingredient for making glass. Now on to Glass coatings
As you can read a bit above, you will also find SiO2 in glass coatings. But what is the difference with Ceramic coating? Real glass coating does not exist. You would need extremely high temperatures for this when applying. It would also be too hard and not work properly because car paint expands due to the heat of the sun, for example. Glass coating is practically a ceramic coating, through a slightly different production process, you get slightly different properties. Such as faster drying and a little more shine from your car paint.
Nanoglans coating spray example uses a mix of nano polymers combined with SiO2 without hardening time. Which leads to a revolutionary formula with extreme hydrophobic effect.
