The Advantages of Ceramic Coating over Traditional Wax and Sealants

March 6, 2023by Timeless_User

Ceramic coatings are becoming increasingly popular as car owners discover how effective they are at protecting vehicles. But is ceramic coating truly better than other car protection options? 


Here are the advantages of getting a ceramic coating over traditional wax and sealants.

1. A ceramic coating offers more durability and protection 

Ceramic coatings maintain your car’s appearance by providing a thick layer of hydrophobic and highly resilient coating. It can protect your car from grime, UV rays, dents, stains, bird droppings, and more. After applying a ceramic coating to your car, you will feel a lot more comfortable driving around Brisbane, whether you’re getting groceries or going on an off-road adventure. 


A wax layer might give your car a rich colour, but it can’t add durability to your car exterior the way a ceramic coating can. Sealants can handle car stressors and contaminants like high temperatures, chemicals, and acidic substances better, but they still might not be as effective as ceramic coatings.

2. Ceramic coatings look amazing

Of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you fancy a glossy, modern look, a ceramic coating might be the best choice for your car since it tends to create a shinier appearance. Many car owners prefer the ceramic coating because it keeps the vehicle looking new, which can also improve the car’s value. 


Wax layers are an affordable way to add a pretty sheen to your car. If you simply want to enhance your car’s shine without protecting it in other ways, waxing might be a good option for you. 


Sealants can actually look quite good on light-coloured car surfaces, since they can further improve the reflective brightness of your car. 

3. Wax and sealants don’t last as long 

Traditional wax typically lasts 2 months, whereas paint sealants are engineered to last longer (usually up to 6 months). Both methods are fairly easy to apply, so you could consider applying wax and sealant a DIY project. 


However, ceramic coatings can last for years, which saves you the hassle of having to reapply the protective coating frequently. Once an expert applies a ceramic coating to your car, it’s a long-term investment that’s generally worth the money.
