Ceramic coating came out and stormed the auto market some years ago. And honestly, it has lived up to its hype, unlike other products that came in and left too early. Despite being in the market for a while now, many people do not know that ceramic coating serves many purposes; they feel it is some sort of polish to lift the vehicle’s face and make it shine better. Ceramic coatings are made up of saturated, tiny ceramic particles in paint solution. Well, let us look at great purposes of nano ceramic coating products across multiple industries.
To reduce friction:
Mechanical parts of machines are put to work regularly, friction increases as a result. Ceramic coatings have characteristic high hardness and low frictional coefficient, thus, although it bonds to a hard metal surface, it can slide over other metals more efficiently. Thus, mechanical parts that are subjected to ceramic coating would have low frictional force working between them. These applications are found in valves, pumps, conveyors, and lots more.
Ceramic coatings also have insulative abilities, thus, earning the name, dielectric coatings. For that purpose, some people use them as forms of insulation. The industrial applications of the ceramic coating are found in the electrical industry as a superlative paint on electrical cable racks, engine parts, hand-held tools, etc.
This has to be the most known application of ceramic coatings. Because they have tiny micromolecules and adhesive properties, they bond quickly and inherently onto metals. The bond is a solid one, thin, and protective. This protection makes it difficult for corrosion to happen. The protective property of ceramic coating is dust and water-repellent, making it difficult for corrosive chemical reactions to occur on the metal surface. Applications are found in the oil and gas industry to protect pipelines, in automotive engineering to coat vital metal parts and even in car maintenance, as an extra layer of protection. The protective property of nano ceramic coating enhances lifespan, minimizes repair, and simplifies maintenance.
Because of its glossiness and durability, dentists use ceramic coatings for dental purposes, such as replicating and protecting the teeth’s sparkling white appearance.
Generally, individual persons and professionals use ceramic coatings for aesthetic purposes such as face-lifting certain products, enhancing appearances with the sparkle that comes with the glossy feature the paint gives. Examples include usage on cars, bikes, helmet, and so on.
