The Science of Shine
3M’s Ceramic Coating is a professionally applied low VOC polish that decreases the surface friction of your car’s paint, making it more slippery. That means dirt and contaminants such as road salt, acid rain, tree sap, bird droppings, and bug splats can be removed or washed away with less effort than before. Your car’s paint will look newer longer.
What it is.
A ceramic coating is a measurable layer of silicone, siloxane, or other chemistry providing a clear protective layer on a variety of substrates. It decreases the surface friction of your car’s paint, making it more slippery and easier to clean.
What it isn’t.
Despite industry claims, a ceramic coating is not a 9H protective barrier to your car’s paint that can prevent paint damage as paint protection film can. A ceramic coating decreases your paint’s coefficient of friction, thereby making it easier to clean.
