It is recommeded that you wash your car with specially formulated soap for ceramic finishes at least every 2 weeks and dry with a microfiber towel.
If we judge both the car protectants and wish to see the paint sealant vs. wax based on the durability, then sealants triumph. The paint sealant survives longer than wax for about three months. Wax, on the other hand, lasts for four to six weeks. Sealant protects against the debris and stains. If your car is often parked in an open space, the sealant is a must-have to keep it secure.
Glossier the car, the better it allures the eyes. That mirror-like finish is achieved using wax. Wax, as compared to the sealant, offers better depth and dimension to the car’s finishes. Some car owners prefer that glossy look for their vehicles, for which they have to rely on wax, as sealant won’t do the job. The quality of wax is unmatchable when that added depth, dimension, or mirror-like appearance is needed for the vehicle.
After coating it is imperative to let the coating cure for a period of time specified by the certified detailer or the ceramic coating company’s curing instructions. In the curing period, the coating is still soft and can be easily weakened. Usually, after 48 hours, it will harden but to cure it completely, three to four weeks is necessary depending on the outside temperature and humidity where the car is parked. If any kind of contaminant such as bird droppings, tree sap, water, etc. is exposed, car owners need to get rid of them immediately. If possible, the car should be kept away from rain, water sprinklers, direct sunlight and any kind of chemicals during this time.
