Nanoceramics or good liquid glass for cars, which is better?

Nanoceramics or good liquid glass which is better

If it is difficult to decide which liquid glass is best for cars with long-lasting effects, and there are no budget restrictions, then it is better to consider purchasing nanoceramics. If liquid glass will save money and, at the same time, restore the appearance of the paintwork for six months, then the ceramic coating will have a more thorough protective effect for several years, increasing the intervals between washes, preserving the body color and wet shine.

When analyzing lists of top products, thinking about which one is better to buy, it is important to correctly assess the purpose of bodywork. If you need a cosmetic effect for six months, then there is no point in incurring large expenses for ceramics. If it is important to provide long-term protection with greater guarantees to prevent damage of a different nature, then the choice is definitely in favor of ceramics.


This trademark is also an «old-timer» of the domestic market of ceramic products, which has almost a century of history. Today it is a modern enterprise with Italian production lines and other equipment.

Glazing and pigmentation is based on imported materials (Spain, Italy).

The list of «Sokolov» products includes more than 500 items of floor and wall ceramics, which are part of various collections and series.

We recommend that you pay attention to the following collections:





A novelty is the series «Wind Rose»


This enterprise was formed relatively recently, located in the Moscow region. The initial task of the company was to fill the gaps in the domestic market of porcelain stoneware products. Then the production expanded, they began to produce high-quality ceramic tiles in a moderate assortment.

Products are manufactured on modern European equipment using innovative technologies. The cost of Estima ceramics compares favorably with foreign analogues. The plant is located near the transport interchange, which facilitates the delivery of products.

In the photo — the Arizona collection, the average price is 620 rubles / sq.m.

One of the oldest brands in the post-Soviet space — with all the pluses and minuses of this position. On the one hand, this is a modern company with high-demand products of an average price level, on the other hand, the image of the Minsk Brick Plant is not the most attractive for marketing. One way or another, Belarusians produce about 80 collections of tiles. Many are available in multiple colors. Design solutions have geographical origins (collections of wall tiles «Venice», «New York» or «Tokyo», for example, and floor tiles — «Toledo»), historical («Bastion») and landscape («Pastoral», «Iris», Sakura and others). Many versatile options suitable for the kitchen, and for the corridor, and even for the bathroom. There is a choice. The dimensions of the tiles are from 10*10 cm to 27.5*40 cm. The quality generally corresponds to the price: even in the most “designer” collections, one can find a discrepancy between tiles in size by 1-2 mm. And you may not meet — how lucky.


  • Wide range and colors
  • Interesting design solutions
  • Good strength and fracture resistance
  • Availability of universal collections
  • Adequate price for most collections


  • In some batches, users note problems with the tile geometry

Our rating: 9.7

Typical feedback: Keramin produces good collections, and if you have good taste and a good designer, your bathroom or toilet will delight you and your guests for a long time, but there is a great desire for the plant to update equipment to normalize quality and reduce prices for tiles.


The KeraMir group with its Azori trademark takes the honorable 6th place in our rating. The previously considered domestic tile manufacturers present thematic collections to the world, and TM Azori has collected all the lines in bulk series. Their number exceeds several dozen, and the number of collections themselves is equal to 150.

The company is known not only for its excellent tiled wall cladding, but also for porcelain stoneware. Also, suitable borders and pencils are produced for each series.

Of no less interest are beautiful panels and exquisite decors, which can be arranged both horizontally and vertically, adding even more creativity and individuality to the room.

The color palette of the series starts from white, pale beige, monotonous pink, blue and ends with rich chocolate and black. The stylistic variety is endless.

Everything is imitated: noble wood, natural stone, collectible laminate, extravagant leather and weightless textiles.

The sales leader in the domestic ceramic tile market is Kerama Marazzi.

Is it only the quality that explains the large variation in prices of the same type of ceramic tiles from various Italian manufacturers?

Brief instructions for applying liquid glass

Application of liquid glass

Liquid glass can be used in professional and home conditions. Household auto chemicals are designed for self-application, do not require special skills.

Recommendations for the choice of material and tool

The choice of materials depends on the manufacturer’s instructions for ceramic coating or liquid glass. There are several methods of application, but the most reliable and durable is to distribute the agent over the protected surfaces manually using special tools.

Almost all products come complete with the necessary materials, as indicated in their description. We offer a list of the necessary, which should be compared with the configuration and buy in addition what is not provided for in it:

  • applicator and sponge for application (for different areas);
  • microfiber cloths and towels for polishing (you need several of them);
  • pipette for mixing and applying the product to the sponge (helps to avoid getting crystals on the polished surface);
  • protective gloves (mask recommended);
  • headlamp for working on hard-to-reach areas and testing coverage uniformity.

Body preparation

Body preparation

Before coating with ceramics or liquid glass, the car body is thoroughly washed (in a non-contact or contact way) and dried with a soft cloth. For bituminous pollution, special tools are needed. Cleaning clay may be used. Remove all previous coatings (waxes and old ceramics) with car chemicals and abrasive materials. The completely cleaned and dried surface is polished (with a polishing machine), blown with compressed air and degreased with white spirit diluted in water. All these procedures will create optimal conditions for good adhesion of the coating to the body.

Important! As a degreaser, do not use products with silicone, which prevents the adhesion of the coating to the surface of the body.

Body polishing

Body polishing

Polishing is carried out in several stages:

  1. First, primary polishing is performed in a closed, well-lit room using a special tool. The body is treated with a microfiber cloth, on which a polish is applied, rubbed in small areas in order to have time to grind the product before it dries.
  2. The next step is deep polishing, the purpose of which is to eliminate deep scratches and chips. Sandpaper of varying degrees of grit is used and a polishing machine with different disk attachments and polishing paste. It is important to have the skill to perform this procedure so that the machine does not remove a large layer of paintwork.

On the restored polished surface evenly, without missing a millimeter, a ceramic coating or liquid glass is applied. Manufacturers indicate in the description the allowable number of layers. After that, conditions for polymerization should be created (from 6 hours to 24 hours, depending on the product) — dust, ultraviolet, water should not get on the body. Full curing occurs in about two weeks. During this period, the vehicle may be driven but not washed.

Should you speed up the process?

Not! It is impossible to refuse any of the stages described above! Speeding up the process can not only make the result not up to expectations, but can also ruin the paintwork. Firstly, careless polishing can remove a layer exceeding the allowed thickness, start corrosive destruction of the body. No wonder polishing from a non-professional takes about 2 days. Secondly, a violation of the technology for applying even high-quality ceramics or liquid glass can lead to uneven, not smooth surfaces.

Important! Despite the availability of technology for independent use and the use of the best liquid ceramics for cars, the process requires certain skills (sufficient cleaning, accurate polishing, uniform application of a protective agent). In the absence of self-confidence, it is better to contact the detailing center.

Kerama Marazzi

The most famous and proven manufacturer is the Kerama Marazzi brand, whose age on the market is estimated at almost 30 years of successful operation.

The assortment of the leader of the Russian ceramic industry has many luxurious collections, and their number is updated annually. The total number of titles reaches 2000.

Types of tiles used for bathroom cladding

Different products can be used for decoration: stone tiles, polymer coating, but three types of materials are especially popular.

Porcelain stoneware

One of the most expensive tile materials has high strength, has excellent water resistance and wear resistance. Tiles can imitate different materials: rocks, wood, metal, leather, brick, etc. Almost its only drawback is increased slipperiness, but when lining the floor, it is eliminated by using products with anti-slip notches.

Tiles (ceramic tiles)

For the design of bathrooms, tile has always been the most popular choice today. Beautiful, resistant to a humid environment, durable and wear-resistant cladding is distinguished by the most budgetary cost of the materials under consideration. Its main advantage is a wide variety of textures, which allows you to create interiors that are unique in aesthetics. However, tile can be quite fragile, which must be taken into account when installing it on the floor.

Clinker tiles

The most expensive tile material made from clay is mainly used for facades, outdoor areas, stairs or patios. However, it is sometimes chosen for decorating the bathroom. Clinker is characterized by excellent performance and durability. But it is not so diverse in appearance.

Among other things, all types of tiles are environmentally friendly, which is very important when decorating residential premises. She is also very easy to care for.

All of these materials are ideal for bathroom cladding, however, they have similar disadvantages that characterize all three types of coatings to a greater or lesser extent:

  • cold surface, which is eliminated by installing a floor heating system;
  • increased slipperiness (this does not apply to clinker), from which notches save;
  • bad soundproofing.

Service life of liquid glass on a car

Subject to the instructions for performing the procedure for processing ceramics or liquid glass of a car body, the protection period is on average about 1 g (minimum 6 months, maximum 2 years). It depends on the features of the product itself, its composition, shape (application with a spray creates a less resistant coating), the number of layers applied, but mainly on how accurately the pause between application of the product and the start of operation of the car is maintained, on driving conditions, quantity and intensity washes (on average, the best ceramics for cars last about 15-20 washes).
