Liquid glass for cars: car coating, liquid glass

Liquid glass is used in the world for several centuries in various applications, however, only recently Japanese scientists have patented it as a protective coating for the car body.

In the market of services for cars liquid glass called ceramic coating. Currently, these compounds are the best means to protect the body from damage and environmental influences.

What is "ceramics"?

  • TiO2 — titanium oxide. The smallest particles of matter through which the liquid can not penetrate the layer.
  • SiO2 – silicon dioxide (quartz). Colourless crystals, possessing high hardness and strength.
  • C10H30O5Si5 substance. The liquid is silicone based, which is not oxidized over time.
  • Al2O3 – aluminium oxide.
  • Other surface-active substances (not more than one percent of the total).

Further details you will learn how these substances help in protecting the body against external factors.

The protective layers of the body

The top layer of the paint of your car most vulnerable to the harmful effects of the environment. Over time, this protective barrier is destroyed, that can easily be identified by the disappearance of former glory. The exposed paint layers quickly peel off, and there are pockets of corrosion. Conventional polishes consist mainly of organic oils and resins, which only form a thin film, not able to protect the paintwork.

Why you need liquid glass?

Body plating liquid glass provides:

  • Luster for several years.
  • Ceramic structure gives the coating water repellent. Drops of water, oil and dirt are instantly removed, leaving no trace.
  • Protection from solar radiation.
  • Protection from scratches. The ceramic layer is quite dense and solid, even if it will mark the paintwork will not be damaged.
  • Protection from chemical impacts (salt, lye, acids).Aluminium oxide included in the ceramic coating also serves as a refractory-based substance.

Liquid glass does not contain organic impurities. After application, the protective coating is tight on the top layer of lacquer and changes its structure at the molecular level, in tens times increasing its durability, and also creates a thick protective layer made of quartz glass, which gives the body a dazzling mirror Shine. The processing of liquid glass, the hardness increases three times, even repeated washing and polishing does not give such a result as ceramic processing.

In all weather conditions your car will look cleaner and brighter.

How to apply liquid glass on the car?

The complex of works on polishing involves several complex steps:

  1. Before applying liquid glass to the whole car needs to be washed.
  2. The next stage is degreasing of the surfaces by using the molar degreasing or isopropyl alcohol. As a result of these procedures, the vehicle should not remain drops of bitumen asphalt of plaque and fats of different origin.
  3. Elimination of defects in paintwork, e.g., by mechanical polishing with abrasive paste. You can use a special mandrel 3M. After careful polishing of the whole body remains of the paste washed, and the car is washed again.
  4. Applying liquid glass. Ceramics should be rubbed with a napkin, which comes complete with substance, it is recommended to make this smooth straight layers with circular movements.

The process of applying takes about 4 hours. Once applied liquid glass on cars, requires 6-10 hours to layer stronger.

If you follow all the instructions on how to apply liquid glass on the car, the coating will maintain their properties within two to three years, depending on usage.

Precautions

The first week after applying the liquid glass should refrain from washing a car with detergents. Ceramic coating takes a long time to firmly fasten with the surface of the body.
