The hottest trend in car protection has been ceramic coating– initially started by a car detailing business, as a professional service. What is ceramic coating for cars? In its truest form, ceramic coatings are durable exterior protective paints. This nanoscopic coating is applied in its liquid state, and once it cures, it forms a thin film of hard, protective covering over your car’s paint. Ceramic coatings offer heaps of benefits to car lovers.
But, of late, another exceptional coating, called graphene ceramic coating, brought to India by Carzspa, under the brand, CrystalShield G10 has caught everyone’s attention. CarzSpa is the first organised detailing chain in India that offers Graphene Ceramic Coating. Let’s find out why graphene ceramic coating has the edge over traditional ceramic coating.

Introduction to Graphene Ceramic Coating
Graphene, a Nobel-winning material, when added to the ceramic coating, helps incorporate some amazing physical characteristics into vehicles undergoing the latest treatment. Therefore, despite being new in the market, it has been stealing the limelight. For a more superficial analogy, it is like a hard candy shell that protects the delicious and valuable chocolate centre. In this case, it’s your car’s original paint!
The Science Behind Adding Graphene to Ceramic Coating
Both Graphene and ceramic coatings share a common property- forming a molecular layer that adheres to the surface, offering a protective layer against impact. Scientifically talking Graphene ceramic coating gives superior protection over ceramic coating or metals because it consists of a one-atom layer thick layer of carbon atoms which are thin yet strong.
Adding Graphene in ceramic coating combines the properties of both and gives an added advantage of protection to your car. Moreover, the benefits of graphene ceramic coating go beyond impact. This coating acts as a barrier against dust buildup, UV rays, corrosion, rust and debris accumulation, making it a preferred choice of car owners over ceramic coating.
There is no doubt that graphene is the best ceramic coating for car but there are several other factors that need consideration For instance Graphene ceramic coating is slightly costlier than ceramic coating. Hence it’s essential to compare the benefits these two coatings offer before arriving at any decision.
Benefits of Graphene Coating Over Traditional Ceramic Coating
We understand the cost of Graphene ceramic coating can raise doubts initially. However, it’s important to consider the array of benefits which makes it the best ceramic coating in India.
These benefits over ceramic coating make it an ideal investment for your vehicle.
Let’s address the fact that traditional coatings do have their merits. For instance, if you are seeking a budget-friendly option that offers protection lasting around 1 to 2 years, choosing traditional ceramic coating might seem reasonable.
However, if you want nothing short of a premium solution that elevates your vehicle protection, then Graphene ceramic coating is undoubtedly the best choice!
Below are some more reasons for choosing Graphene over ceramic coating.
Graphene Ceramic Coating: The Perfect Cure for Water Spots
The major advantage graphene ceramic coating has over ceramic coating is reduced heat retention on the surface. As ceramic coatings have high heat retention capacity, water on the surface evaporates over a period of time, leaving an area of mineral deposit whereas with graphene coating, water, instead of evaporating from the surface, will form attractive water beads.
Besides, graphene ceramic coating has unique chemical properties and a honeycomb structure over ceramic coating which Graphene, imparts a very high water contact angle to the coating. Owing to that, water on any surface with graphene coating slides down smoothly, reducing the possibility of water droplets remaining for long and eventually evaporating to leave water spots.
Enhances Your Vehicle’s Durability and Strength
Ceramic coating for cars is a sturdy guard, and its longevity has been one of the prime reasons for its popularity in the industry. But it’s exciting to note that with the addition of Graphene, the durability can further be bolstered.
Due to its two-dimensional structure and honeycomb lattice, graphene is thin, lightweight, yet incredibly strong. This imparts unsurpassable durability to the surface coated with graphene. Once applied, you can relish the glossy finish of 10H hardness for a stretch of 5-7 years. Come rain or shine your crystal shield coating is not going to wear down.
Shield Your Car From Dust With Graphene Ceramic Coating
Graphene enjoys privileges based on its chemical properties. To get a bit technical, Graphene is said to be ‘anti-static’, taking into consideration its conductivity properties.
This implies that it repels dust and other minute or microscopic particles and does not allow them to settle down on the surface coated with it. And taking into account its durability, this means that you can relish the velvety, spick and span appearance of your car for an impressive period of time.
Applying Graphic Ceramic Coating On Your Vehicle
Achieving the optimal application of both Graphene ceramic coating and ceramic coating requires understanding their distinct properties. If you are choosing graphene coating over ceramic coating, professional car detailing services is recommended, in order to avoid tearing down your vehicle’s paint or forming water bubbles. DIY enthusiasts can follow these steps:
- Thoroughly wash your car with a clay bar to remove any contaminants or dirt on any surface.
- Polish your vehicle using a paint cleaner or prep solvent to remove light scratches or swirl marks.
- Wear gloves and eye protection and then apply a small amount of Graphene ceramic coating onto an applicator pad.
- Apply the coating section by section in straight and overlapping motions making sure you cover all areas evenly.
- Repeat the application process and after applying it to all parts, allow it to dry and keep away from moisture.
- A graphene-coated car requires more care over ceramic coating car so make sure to wash your vehicle regularly with Ph-neutral solutions and keep it away from direct sunlight
So, at the end of the day, the question arises, which coating is better? When you compare the benefits offered by both products, it is irrefutably clear that graphene ceramic coatings have an advantage over traditional ceramic coatings.
Though graphene ceramic coating is slightly more expensive than conventional coatings, graphene ceramic coatings have advanced properties and additional benefits, which give you value for money in the long run.
They have greater durability, and also offer generous protection against scratches, due to advanced flexibility. With an elegant coat of ultra-smooth graphene ceramic coating, your luxurious car is sure to catch the eyes of passers-by.
