When it comes to protecting your vehicle's paint, Ceramic Pro coatings have become increasingly popular due to their superior durability and long-lasting shine. However, with different packages available, it can be challenging to decide which one is the best fit for your needs. In this blog, we'll compare two of the most popular Ceramic Pro packages - ION and Ultimate ION - to the Gold and Silver packages, and explain why APC Auto Spa is the best choice for the service.
Ceramic Pro ION and Ultimate ION packages
Ceramic Pro ION packages consist of a two-layer system, including a base layer and a top layer. The base layer provides excellent adhesion to the vehicle's surface, while the top layer creates a molecular bond with the base layer providing a high level of Hydrophobicity, meaning it repels water and other liquids more effectively than the original coatings. The Ceramic Pro Ultimate ION package offers an additional layer of base coat which provides a higher level of gloss and depth, additional hardness and scratch resistance, and additional protection from harmful UV rays.
In simple terms, the ION packages both use advanced nanotechnology, including ceramic and graphene nanoparticles, to provide the highest level of protection and durability for a vehicle's paint job.
Ceramic Pro Gold and Silver Packages
The Ceramic Pro Gold and Silver packages are the flagship packages of the Ceramic Pro line. They use a base layer of Ceramic Pro 9H and a topcoat to provide a layer of protection that lasts up to 5 years. Ceramic Pro 9H is composed of a complex molecular structure of silicon dioxide (SiO2) and titanium dioxide (TiO2). The name 9H comes from it's ranking on the hardness scale. The grade is based on the pencil scale, which was created to measure the solidity of pencil leads. The scale ranges from one (ultra soft) to 9 (basically as strong as quartz). It provides an extremely hard and durable protective layer that is resistant to scratches, abrasion, and chemical damage. Top Coat is applied as a second layer and provides additional protection and a high-gloss finish. The main difference between the two packages is the number of layers applied. The Gold package includes four layers of 9H, while the Silver package includes one layer of 9H.
The Ceramic Pro Gold and Silver packages are an excellent choice for someone who wants a long-lasting coating that provides exceptional protection against scratches, swirl marks, and UV rays. They are also a great option for someone who wants a coating that will keep their vehicle looking new for years to come.
Which package should I choose?
One reason why someone might choose the Ceramic Pro ION or Ultimate ION package over the Ceramic Pro Gold and Silver packages is the level of protection and durability. The ION and Ultimate ION packages offer a higher level of protection and durability, including resistance to chemical damage, UV rays, and environmental factors such as acid rain and bird droppings. Additionally, the ION and Ultimate ION packages offer a higher level of hydrophobicity, meaning they repel water and other liquids more effectively than the Gold and Silver packages.
However, someone might choose the Ceramic Pro Gold or Silver package if they do not require the highest level of protection and durability. The Gold and Silver packages are more affordable than the ION and Ultimate ION packages and may be suitable for someone who does not drive their vehicle frequently or does not live in an area with extreme weather conditions.
