Glass coating vs ceramic coating
There are different car coatings on the market. As a result, many terms are thrown around to sometimes even describe the same product. A brief summary of the various coatings: Glass coating, ceramic coating, nano coating & Teflon coating.
All these coatings have almost the same properties.
- UV protection
- Extra shine
- Hydrophobic, water-repellent
- Dirt, insects, etc., do not adhere, therefore easy to remove.
- Stays longer
What is the difference between glass coating, ceramic coating and other coatings?
Some coatings have a 24-hour hard time for optimum performance. Ceramic and glass coating in particular have this.
Ceramic coatings use ceramic, silicon oxide (SiO2) and is used in glaze of ceramic. Also a component to make glass. Now on to Glass coatings
As you can already read above, you can 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 eg the sun heat. Glass coating is practically a ceramic coating, due to a slightly different production process, you obtain slightly different properties. Such as drying faster and a little more shine from your car paint.
Nanoglans coating spray uses an example of a mix of nano polymers combined with SiO2 without hard time. Which leads to a revolutionary formula with extreme hydrophobic effect.
