Black Forest Ceramic Coating
What is a ceramic coating?
Black Forest Nano Ceramic Coatings are scientifically formulated to penetrate microscopic surface pores to provide a bonding layer of protection that is incredibly strong and resilient.
Typically, the protective ingredient found in ceramic coatings is SiO2 (silicon dioxide). However, in recent years, some incredible advancements have been made using Graphene as the protective ingredient, proving it to be superior to SiO2. Therefore, all of the Black Forest coatings are made using Graphene.
Graphene coatings are one of the latest technological advancements to hit the coatings market.
This carbon-based nano-material isn’t exactly new - a pair of British scientists discovered it back in 2004 and went on to win the Nobel Prize in 2010 for their research. Fast forward to today and Graphene has grown in popularity, especially in the automotive detailing space. We are now expanding this technology and bringing it into the woodworking industry!
What are the benefits of a ceramic coating?
Ceramic coatings work by adhering with the surface to form a protective shield that is next to diamond in hardness and hydrophobic causing liquid to bead on the surface.
By reinforcing the surface, Black Forest Nano Ceramic Coatings are ideal in preventing and minimizing surface damage including: abrasion, chemical stains, UV damage and oxidation.
The higher surface sheen of Ceramic enhanced surfaces are easier to clean.
Our Base Coat products provide the best protection when paired with the Top Coat, further enhancing the life span, finish and sheen. You can order everything as a kit for some savings here.
Top Coat can be applied periodically to maintain optimal surface protection.
Our Ceramic finishes are designed to be used as an additional layer of protection over top of your existing finish. We recommend our Black Forest Furniture Oil.
What makes our coatings different?
We are the Original Woodworking Ceramic Coating. Ceramic coatings have been around for years in the automotive industry, utilizing solvent based formulas. Not only are solvent formulas more hazardous to your health, but they are not fully compatible with oil based finishes, typically seen in woodworking. Excessive use of solvent based coatings will eventually strip the protective oil from your table. Our coatings are specifically formulated for use over woodworking finishes. By utilizing water based formula, no damage is done to the oil underneath, the water simply evaporates after application, leaving the protective coating.
