Nanocoatings or ceramic coatings, as they are commonly known, are liquids that, when applied to vehicle paint, bond to the surface to form a glossy, durable barrier that repels water, pollutants, and often UV rays. Your goal is to maintain, protect and enhance the perfect appearance of the surface.
A polymer is a group of bonded molecules. These polymers are crosslinked to form nanostructures that form nanolayers. Through particle transfer, the nano ceramic layering joins with the transparent varnish layer and completely becomes part of the surface.

Some of these compounds are so durable that the coating must be machine polished to remove them. Less durable coatings, on the other hand, can be removed with strong solvents. Brands often describe their coatings, often described as "ceramic", "glass" or "quartz".
"Ceramic" refers to "nano-ceramic", ceramics made of nanoparticles. Nanoceramics do not have the same hardness or brittleness as macroscale ceramics. These nanoparticles form the nanostructure of the ceramic coating. A decade ago, ceramic coatings could not last more than a few years due to SiO2 restrictions.
But with the introduction of highly durable silicon carbide coatings, coatings can now last for more than a decade. Often coatings are made from a mixture of ceramic nanoparticles rather than just one to achieve unique protective properties.
