Ceramic Coating

What is a ceramic coating?

ceramic coating.jpg

Ceramic coat covering the surface of your car which also acts as a shield against everyday wear like water spots and bug residue.  Since it's ceramic-based, the ceramic coating causes water to bead up and roll off so it allows for easier cleaning and protection to your vehicle.

 

Professionally installed Ceramic coatings form an ultra-hard surface that holds up better than any other conventional surface finish like wax. Ceramic coatings last for years without any major maintenance, except for periodic cleaning to keep it looking its best.

What are some of the
benefits of a ceramic coating?

  • No need to wax or seal the vehicle for the life of the coating. Ceramic coatings create a barrier that is significantly harder, more chemical resistant, and longer lasting than any wax or sealant. Adding any products “on top” of a coating other than maintenance products sold by the coating manufacturer can impede a coatings protective abilities.

  • Reduce the amount of cleaning needed, makes cleaning the vehicle easier. Dirt releases easier, faster, and the resulting effect is much less time and effort needed to make your vehicle look like it has been freshly detailed.

  • Marring resistance. While NOTHING is “scratch proof” some professional grade coatings do make the surface harder than original clear coat, thus greatly reducing the amount of swirl marks accumulated over time vs. a non-ceramic coated vehicle with proper washing and drying techniques.

  • Excellent gloss and aesthetic appeal. Clients have told us that even years after having their vehicle ceramic coated, they still get compliments about the car having a “just detailed look” after a simple wash.

  • UV and chemical protection. Ceramic coatings provide protection against harmful UV rays and chemicals far beyond any wax or sealant. Most professional grade coatings are very chemical resistant and can only be damaged or removed by extremely high or low PH products.

  1. Your vehicle will be easier to clean

  2. No more waxing 2-4 times a year

  3. It's cost-effective

  4. An extra layer of hardened protection

  5. Ceramic coatings repel mud, dirt, and water

  6. Keeps your vehicle looking new for years

  7. UV protection to prevent fading and loss of shine

  8. Makes removing bugs simple and fast to remove 

  9. The coating makes cleaning faster and easier

Why is a ceramic coating better than wax?

Most ceramic coatings can last more than three years without any major maintenance, except for periodic cleaning to keep it looking its best. Waxes only last about six weeks before they begin to wear thin and crack so ceramic coatings are almost always the better choice over wax when trying to preserve the lifespan of your vehicle's paint job. Ceramic coatings last for years with proper wash technique and periodic maintenance.

How do I take care of a ceramic coating after it is applied?

This simplest answer to this question is to wash it, then dry it completely, and take it to your detailer as needed for decontamination or maintenance. Maintenance from a detailer may consistent of high PH washing to deep clean the coating, chemical decontamination with iron removal chemicals, clay bar treatment, maintenance products meant to reinvigorate or increase slickness, or even spot polishing and recoating of small sections in case of damage.

What if I get into a car accident? Will insurance cover the cost of having the coating re-applied?

In our years of experience dealing with these situations we have found that with full coverage insurance the cost of coating re-application is covered under most policies. Make sure to inform us as soon as possible after an accident occur we can provide an estimate for re-coating the damaged sections of vehicle so that you can submit the information to your insurance company.

There is a huge variance in pricing from one detailer to the next, or even from the dealership on the cost of a ceramic coating. What gives?

Many factors affect the pricing of a ceramic coating, including but not limited to:

  • The experience, knowledge, and skills of the detailer applying the coating.

  • The type of coating being applied, all products are different.

  • The level of preparation needed prior to applying the coating. Some dealerships or detailers will skip steps altogether in order to offer a lower price.

  • The size, color, and manufacturer of the vehicle can also affect pricing. Some vehicles have much softer clear coats that are harder to prepare for coating application than others.
