Liquid crystal display for vehicles: car coating, liquid glass

Liquid crystal is used in the world for several centuries in various applications, however, only recently Japanese scientists have patented as a protective coating for the bodywork of the vehicle.

In the market of services for cars of liquid crystal called ceramic coating. Currently, these compounds are the best means to protect the body from damage and environmental influences.

What is "ceramics"?

  • TiO2 — titanium oxide. The smallest particles of matter through which the liquid can not penetrate the layer.
  • SiO2 – silicon dioxide (quartz). Colourless crystals, possessing high hardness and resistance.
  • C10H30O5Si5 substance. The liquid is silicone based, which is not oxidized over time.
  • Al2O3 – aluminum oxide.
  • Other surface-active substances (not more than one percent of the total).

More details you will learn how these substances help protect the body against external factors.

The protection of the layers of the body

The top layer of the paint of your car most vulnerable to the harmful effects of the environment. With time, this protective barrier is destroyed, which can be easily identified by the disappearance of the former glory. The exposed paint layers quickly peel off, and there are pockets of corrosion. Conventional polishes consist primarily of organic oils and resins, which only form a thin film, it is not capable of protecting the paint.

Why you need to liquid crystal?

The body plates of liquid crystal offers:

  • Shine for several years.
  • Ceramic structure gives the layer impermeable. Drops of water, oil and dirt are immediately removed, without leaving any trace.
  • Protection of solar radiation.
  • Protection from scratches. The ceramic of the layer is very dense and solid, even if it's marked the paint won't be damaged.
  • Protection from chemical impacts (salt, lye, acids).The aluminum oxide included in the ceramic coating also serves as a refractory material based on the substance.

Liquid crystal does not contain impurities organic. After the application, the protection coating is adjusted to the top of the layer of lacquer and the changes in its structure at the molecular level, in dozens of times to increase its durability, and also creates a thick protective layer made of crystal quartz, which gives the body a dazzling mirror Shine. The treatment of liquid crystal, the hardness increases three times, even repeated washing and the polishing does not give a result such as ceramic processing.

In all weather conditions your car will look more clean and bright.

How to apply liquid glass in the car?

The complex work of polishing involves several complex steps:

  1. Before the application of liquid crystal for all the car needs to be washed.
  2. The next step is the degreasing of the surfaces by means of the molar degreasing or isopropyl alcohol. As a result of these procedures, the vehicle must not remain drops of bitumen asphalt of plaque and fats of different origin.
  3. Removal of defects of painting, for example, by mechanical polishing with a paste abrasive. You can use a special mandrel 3M. After a careful polishing of the whole body remains in the pulp washed, and the car is washed again.
  4. The application of liquid crystal. Ceramics should be rubbed with a napkin, which comes from the substance, it is recommended to make this smooth straight layers with circular movements.

The process of applying takes about 4 hours. Once applied liquid glass in the car, requires 6-10 hours in the layer stronger.

If you follow all the instructions on how to apply liquid glass in the car, the coating should maintain its properties over a period of two to three years, depending on the use.

Precautions

The first week after you apply the liquid glass should refrain from washing a car with detergents. Ceramic coating takes a long time to hold firmly with the surface of the body.
