Ceramic Coatings are super hard coatings that when applied to any surface develop a shield fro the elements to maintain a cleaner surface and easier to maintain substrate.
Nasa has been working with ceramic coatings for years.Looking for ways to protect spacecraft from UV light and to protect engine parts
Advancing Ceramic Coatings for Engine Life and Efficiency

Engine components today are made of super alloys, but operating conditions take these materials to their fundamental limits. In order to further improve fuel efficiency, a new class of ceramic materials made from silicon carbide, are being incorporated into engines. These materials are lighter and can withstand higher temperatures than the super alloys being used today. However, these ceramics erode in combustion environments due to the presence of water vapor.To solve this problem, scientists and engineers at NASA’s Glenn Research Center have pioneered a process that applies thin, smooth ceramic coating materials to protect the silicon carbide parts.It all happens in the Plasma Spray-Physical Vapor Deposition Rig, a 10 by 6 foot stainless steel chamber. Materials Research Engineer Bryan Harder explains how it works. “The torch creates a high-powered plasma that vaporizes ceramic material and deposits it onto parts very precisely to create durable, long-lasting coatings to protect the components from environmental attack.”
The list goes on and on
Simply stated, ceramic coatings make everything look better,stay cleaner longer(they offer a self cleaning effect) and protect your valuable assets from environmental damage.
The technology has progressed to include,believe it or not water based formulas that offer incredible protection and for do it your self people,any one can apply these coatings.
Technology has come a long way.We have been used to using wax to protect our cars our floors in hospitals and department stores,but ceramic never strip coatings are the wave of the future for protection from the elements.
Your car can resist bug and road damage like never before.
If you look around you will see that they appear to be very expensive but if you know where to go,you just cannot beat Simix Solutions coatings.
