This new technology bonds to the paint at a molecular level! Want to learn more? Here are the details about the benefits of ceramic coatings.
1. Longer-Lasting Than Alternative Treatments
Waxing must be done several times a year in order to protect your boat. Clear coat or gelcoat paint is another alternative, but repainting your boat is very expensive, and requires a long refinishing process.
Ceramic coatings can protect your paint for up to 3 years above the waterline. Not only that, ceramic coatings can be “retouched” without being removed, which can extend their overall lifespan by up to 18 months.
2. Protects Your Paint From Damage
The ultra-hard materials used in marine ceramic coatings can resist:
- UV damage
- Scratches and abrasions
- Marine life (algae, barnacles)
- Corrosion and oxidation
- Exhaust soot stains
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Hydrophobic and extremely durable, a marine ceramic coating is the best way to protect your paint, and the underlying hull material from damage.
3. Increases Fuel Efficiency And Top Speed Of Your Boat
It’s true! The hydrophobic nature of ceramic coatings means that there is less surface tension and water resistance when cruising in your boat.
4. Simpler Maintenance And Cleaning
Cleaning a boat with a ceramic coating is as easy as can be. The incredibly strong molecular structure of ceramic coatings reduces buildup of grime and dirt, and its hydrophobic properties ensure that no foreign material can stain the underlying paint.
All you have to do in order to clean your boat is use a neutral-pH yacht shampoo, or a similar product, and a soft brush. You’ll be able to quickly scrub away surface stains, which keeps your yacht looking brand-new and gorgeous!
5. More Environmentally-Friendly
Because you don’t need to use as many harsh chemicals and acids to clean the exterior of your boat, ceramic coatings make your boat much more environmentally-friendly. You don’t have to worry about harsh chemicals leaching into the water.
