If you are used to detailing cars, you know that protective coatings can be applied anywhere. As long as the surface can handle the coating (some surfaces will not take coatings well like painted surfaces), it can be made smooth and shiny by applying a suitable protective coating.
This article will discuss five areas you can apply ceramic coating that are not generally thought of.
Believe it or not, you can also protect your windows with proper coatings. Most people think only the body panels should be coated to maintain optimum performance, but applying ceramic window film can also be a great option.
The windows are one of the main entry points for UV into your car, and applying ceramic window film is an easy way to block that sun’s rays. It’s also pretty inexpensive, so if you’re leasing or financing your vehicle, it can significantly bring down the cost of ownership.
And coating windows will lessen the effects of UV rays and give your car better visibility during the day.
2. Door Handles
Many don’t think about their door handles, but they are constantly being used and exposed to things that wear on them.
Door handles are one area that’s easy to get dirty and is difficult to get clean. Door handle cleaning and detailing are usually not part of standard car detailing services, so they can get grimy.
Ceramic coating the door handles is a great way to protect them from getting dirty and damaged from UV rays.
Coating your door handles can help reduce wear and tear, and it’s an inexpensive way to keep them looking good for a long time.
Yes, believe it or not, you can coat your tyres with a protective coating, protect them from the sun, and reduce the effects of aging on them. This is especially important if you drive in hotter climates.
Tyres are constantly exposed to UV rays and can become dry and crack. Applying a protective coating to the tyres is an easy way to keep them looking great, reduce cracking, and increase their longevity.
4. Aluminium Trim
Aluminium trim on your car’s windows is suitable for style, but it is also easily exposed to UV rays. If you’ve ever had this type of trim, you probably recall how the top portion of the trim gets bleached and oxidised over time.
Many people don’t think about their aluminium trim when applying a protective coating. Still, it is another item that can fade and wear out over time by exposure to UV rays. Coating your aluminium trim helps reduce fading and has the added benefit of giving it a mirror-like finish that looks great.
5. Plastics and Rubber
Plastic and rubber pieces like mouldings and trim can be easily oxidised by UV rays and can become faded and worn out over time. Applying a protective coating will help reduce fading, dullness and give them a mirror-like finish that looks great.
You can apply protective coatings to plastics and rubber pieces like mouldings and trim around your car’s doors, windows, side view mirrors, etc. This is a quick and easy way to keep these areas looking good for years to come, and it’s an inexpensive alternative to replacing them.
As you can see, many areas of your car can benefit from a protective coating and will help it look better for years to come. To improve the look and life of your car, you can consider investing in quality ceramic coatings from a trusted brand.
