Liquid glass for vehicles: car covers, liquid glass

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

On the service market for cars liquid glass called ceramic coating. Currently, these compounds are the best way to protect the body from damage and weather.

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, which have high hardness and strength.
  • C10H30O5Si5 substances. 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).

More details you will learn how these substances help protect the body against external factors.

The protective layers of the body

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

Why you need liquid glass?

Body plating liquid glass provides:

  • Luster for many years.
  • The ceramic structure makes the coating water repellent. Drops of water, oil and dirt removed immediately, leaving no trace.
  • Protection against solar radiation.
  • Protection against scratches. The ceramic layer is very dense and firm, even if this will mark the paintwork will not be damaged.
  • Protection against chemical impacts (salt, lye, acids).Aluminium oxide included in the ceramic coating serves also as a refractory based materials.

Liquid glass does not contain organic impurities. After the application of the protective coating, which is close to the top layer of the nail and changes its structure at the molecular level, in ten-fold greater durability and also creates a thick protective layer of quartz glass, which gives the body a dazzling mirror Shine. The processing of liquid glass, the hardness is increased by 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?

Complex of works on polishing involves several complex steps:

  1. Before applying the liquid glass, that even the car should be washed.
  2. In the next phase is scouring of the surfaces by using the molar scouring or isopropyl alcohol. As a result of these procedures, the vehicle must not remain drops of asphalt bitumen plaque and fats of different origin.
  3. The correction of errors in a color, e.g., mechanical polishing with abrasive paste. You can use a special mandrel 3M. After carefully polishing the whole body remains the paste washed, and the car is washed again.
  4. The use of liquid glass. Ceramics should be rubbed with of napkin, which comes complete with a substance, it is recommended to make this smooth straight layers with circular motions.

The process of application takes about 4 hours. When you apply the liquid glass on cars, requires 6-10 hours per layer, which is stronger.

If you have followed all the instructions on how to apply liquid glass on the car, the coating will retain its properties within a period of two to three years, depending on the use.

Precautions

The first week after using the liquid glass, should refrain from washing a car with detergents. The ceramic coating takes a long time to firmly attach to the surface of the body.
