Benefits of Ceramic Coatings for Semi Trucks

There’s no doubt that, over time, a semi truck’s paint can begin to look old and worn down. With all the time a truck spends on the road, the exterior gets exposed to many contaminants and conditions that slowly damage the paint and appearance of the vehicle. Fortunately, a semi ceramic coating can help drivers protect and restore their rig’s paint job no matter where the job is taking them.

A ceramic coating is a special layer of silicon dioxide, or SiO2, that is applied to a vehicle’s body to protect it from external paint damage. At Reflection Detail, we offer our ceramic coating services to truck drivers so that they can keep their rigs clean and protected. Below, our Sioux Falls auto detail shop shares the benefits of ceramic coatings for semis.

Provides the Ultimate Paint Protection

Perhaps the most notable benefit of semi ceramic coating is that it will protect the exterior paint job thoroughly. Ceramic coating provides a strong, protective surface on the truck’s body that works to block all foreign matter from causing damage to the exterior paint. Applying the coating will protect against chips, swirl marks, stains, discoloration, and other damages all while preserving the rig’s vibrant look.

Makes Cleaning Easier

As a professional truck driver, the responsibilities of the job often include keeping the truck clean and maintaining a professional appearance. This is easier said than done, especially considering all of the mud, dust, and debris your truck is exposed to while traveling. Applying a ceramic coating, though, can help make your rig easier to clean. Ceramic coatings have a hydrophobic nature, so mud and wet filth will fall from the exterior and, even if they don’t, they’ll be much easier to clean.

Restores Your Rigs Shine

There aren’t many drivers out there that don’t appreciate a good-looking exterior. In addition to providing protection, a ceramic coating can serve as a visual enhancement for your rig. Once applied, the coating will add a glossiness that is akin to that of a brand-new vehicle. It can help highlight the vibrancy and depth of the original paint job, restoring your rig’s look to when it was first driven off of the lot.

Incredibly Long-Lasting

Compared to other vehicle paint protection options, ceramic coatings take the crown. Standard waxes or paint sealants will typically only last a few months, require reapplications throughout the year, and degrade when exposed to the elements. Ceramic coatings, on the other hand, will last much longer and won’t need to be replaced year after year.
