Why You Need A Ceramic Coating For Your Car’s Glass

Glass Serum Repels WaterNow that we’re in the thick of spring storm season and summer showers are coming up, it’s important to remember just how essential having a ceramic coating for vehicle glass is. 

A quick refresher on this technology: ceramic coatings are nanostructured barriers with protective properties, ranging from hydrophobicity to UV resistance. One example would be Dr. Beasley’s Glass Serum Kit.

The Glass Serum Kit is a great ceramic coating for vehicle glass, so we’ll be focusing on its particular benefits to show you what makes a ceramic coating for your car’s glass such an advantage. 

And at the end of the day, that advantage comes down to three things: Better visibility in adverse conditions, easier cleaning, and most importantly for detailing obsessives, impeccable clarity. Let’s take a look these advantages more in depth. 

Improved Visibility

When you’re driving in a downpour, you need to maintain visibility so you can stay focused on the road. Your wipers will help shed water to some extent, but in order to ensure maximum visibility a ceramic coating like Glass Serum is really your best bet. The hydrophobic nanostructure stops rain water from clinging to your windshield, causing it to slide away more readily than with just your wipers.

Check out the video below for an example of how a Glass Serum coating drives water away:

 

But it’s not just rain that Glass Serum keeps at bay. Let’s say you’re driving in the aftermath of a torrential rainstorm, and you accidentally speed right through a deep puddle of mud. Normally this mud would kick up and splatter on to your windshield, leaving you with an obscuring stain. But with Glass Serum installed, that mud will slide right off instead of clinging to the surface. 

Beyond mud, Glass Serum’s contaminant repellency also applies to bird droppings, insect remains, plant matter or just about any view-obscuring gunk you can think of. Safe to say, a ceramic coating on your windshield is a must-have if you want to make driving a safer and easier endeavor. 

Easier Cleaning

Cleaning your car’s glass can be a bit of a pain, especially if you’ve got contaminants dried on the surface. But when you’ve got a hydrophobic ceramic coating like Glass Serum installed, those contaminants will simply rest on top of the coating rather than encrusting onto the surface. 

From there, a simple rinse should be enough to wash them away. How does that work? Well, because water is repelled from the surface, it takes contaminant particles along with it as it slides away. Having a hydrophobic windshield makes it so much easier to keep your windshield clear of gunk, for both visibility and aesthetics’ sake. 

Here’s a quick video to demonstrate how flowing water behaves on a Glass Serum-coated windshield:

 

Perfect Clarity

If you’re a stickler for aesthetic perfection, you’ve probably been disappointed by how car’s glass look even after a thorough clean. Where’s that extra “pop”? What’s missing? It could be a ceramic coating!

A coating like Glass Serum goes a long way towards boosting your glass’ look. Because the nanostructure is filling in the imperfections in your glass’ surface, you’re getting a level of clarity that a simple glass cleaner just can’t provide. 

So as you’ve read above, having a ceramic coating like Glass Serum on your car’s glass is a huge advantage if you’re serious about visibility, fast cleaning and beautiful glass.  Get one installed ASAP so you can be ready for the summer! 

  • Great blog on why ceramic coating is important. This will be my next blog topic.
    Thanks.

  • Nice job 🙂

    We all need ceramic coating as in India Monsoon is about to start and we should protect our car with ceramic coating.

    • Purchasing brand new car after 3 days. so my question is that is coating is already done on the new cars or we have to do it after purchasing?

      • Hi Neal,

        You would need to apply a ceramic coating after purchasing, as dealerships generally don’t apply ceramic coatings to cars in their inventory unless it’s a service being offered as part of the purchase.

        • Yep, crosschecked with them and it is additional service so I have to purchase it for my new swift 2018 model.

    I applied the Glass serum coating to my windshield. The application was totally by the user manual, and I timed the wait time. It was easy to apply, and wiping the excess went pretty smoothly, or so I thought. I have noticed swirl marks in my windshield. I guess the coating solidified, and the wiping action put these marks in. They are noticeable driving at night with street lights. Would applying a second coat get rid of these marks?
