You are starting to see more vehicles with that iconic Tesla “T” cruise the streets in every state. When owning a vehicle that does not have a traditional engine or engine compartment, you need an automotive detailer with extensive experience in coating your Roadster or Model X.
Tesla paint has been heavily criticised as being fragile “soft.” Since the cars are manufactured over the pond in the USA in Brentwood, California, the environmental requirements are quite strict and the result is the Tesla’s paint is not as “hard” as the paint finishes with other cars. As a result of these owners of Tesla, Cars have been disappointed with the finish of the paint even only after a couple of months or as little as 1000 miles with their Tesla Model S been covered in swirl marks, light scratches and a grey haze over the paintwork which has dulled the true colour of the Tesla’s paintwork.
Unlike most production vehicles – a Tesla is not a purchase; it’s an investment. Whether you opt for the comfort and modern convenience of the Model X or the performance-tuned Model S, Tesla owners are passionate about protecting their vehicles. This leads to a commonly asked question – when it comes to applying ceramic coatings for Tesla, is it worth the investment?
While we’d like to quickly answer with a resounding YES – it really depends on the type of ceramic coating, the condition of your car’s paint surface, and the application. The range of ceramic coat products for cars ranges from watered-down, back-engineered knock-offs to spray waxes infused with microscopic levels ceramic ingredients.
Let’s explore some of the facts about ceramic coatings for Tesla and explain why it makes sense to demand excellence to protect your investment. So
What is a ceramic coating for Teslas?
Ceramic Coating is a paint protection liquid that is applied on top of existing vehicle paintwork, this additional coating helps to keep the underlying paint surface protected and looking its best for many years.
The simplest analogy is to think of a ceramic coating as a non-stick surface that you might find on a frying pan but that is completely clear, it basically stops things from sticking (e.g. road dirt, tar spots etc).
The technology originated from NASA to protect things in space, these coatings offer automotive surfaces protection from acid rain, freezing rain, harsh wash chemicals and direct sunlight as well as the following benefits:
They form strong chemical bonds with substrates at the atomic level so these coatings cannot be removed using paint cleaners or pressure washers; they will not wash away in a storm like some waxes: they are inherently extremely durable.
