In addition to being hydrophobic, ceramic can also give your car a gleaming look. Your car can look like a moving mirror because of the ceramic layers that make your car sparkle and glare in the sunlight. It’s like a new “skin” put on your car’s paint. It will make your car stand out and look attractive.
