What are Ceramic Coatings?

A ceramic coating can be described as an additional layer of clear coat which serves as a sacrificial layer on top of a vehicle’s paint with 3 times the hardness and self-cleaning properties of traditional clear coat. Ceramic coatings are hydrophobic so water is repels right off your vehicle’s surface.

Ceramic Coatings Q&A

Is ceramic coating good for your car?
Yes, ceramic coating can be beneficial for your car. Ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that is applied to the exterior surfaces of a vehicle to protect the paintwork and provide a glossy finish. Ceramic coating forms a protective layer on the paint surface, shielding it from UV rays, oxidation, and chemical stains. It acts as a barrier against environmental contaminants like bird droppings, tree sap, and harsh chemicals, reducing the chances of paint damage.
How long does ceramic coating last on my car?
The duration of a ceramic coating’s lifespan can vary depending on several factors, including the quality of the coating, the application process, the environmental conditions, and the maintenance routine. However, a well-maintained ceramic coating can typically last anywhere from one to five years.

Higher-quality ceramic coatings tend to have longer lifespans compared to lower-quality ones. Professional-grade coatings and those with advanced formulations may offer enhanced durability and longevity.

Why should I ceramic coat my car?
  1. Paint Protection: One of the primary benefits of ceramic coating is its ability to provide an additional layer of protection to your car’s paintwork. It acts as a barrier against UV rays, oxidation, chemical stains, bird droppings, tree sap, and other environmental contaminants that can damage the paint surface. This protection helps to maintain the overall appearance and value of your vehicle.
  2. Longevity: Ceramic coatings are known for their durability. Unlike traditional waxes or sealants that may require frequent reapplication, a properly applied ceramic coating can last for several years, reducing the need for regular maintenance. Its longevity helps to preserve the paintwork and keeps it looking fresh and glossy for an extended period.
  3. Enhanced Appearance: Ceramic coatings provide a high-gloss, reflective finish to your car’s paintwork. The coating fills in microscopic imperfections, resulting in a smooth and shiny surface. It enhances the depth and clarity of the paint color, giving your car a showroom-like appearance.
  4. Easy Maintenance: Ceramic coatings make your car easier to clean and maintain. The hydrophobic properties of the coating repel water and prevent dirt, grime, and other contaminants from sticking to the surface. This means that washing your car becomes a simpler task, and the need for aggressive scrubbing or harsh chemicals is reduced.
  5. Cost Savings: While ceramic coatings typically require an upfront investment, they can lead to long-term cost savings. By protecting your car’s paintwork, you reduce the risk of damage and the need for expensive paint correction or repainting in the future. Additionally, the reduced maintenance requirements mean less time and money spent on detailing and frequent waxing or sealant applications.
How do I maintain the ceramic coating on my car?

To maintain the ceramic coating on your car and ensure its longevity, here are some essential tips:

  1. Gentle Washing: Use a pH-neutral car wash soap and a soft microfiber wash mitt or sponge to wash your car. Avoid using abrasive materials or harsh brushes that can potentially scratch the coating. Rinse your car thoroughly before washing to remove any loose dirt or debris that may cause scratches.
  2. Two-Bucket Method: Employ the two-bucket method while washing your car. Fill one bucket with clean, soapy water and another with plain water for rinsing your mitt or sponge. This helps to prevent cross-contamination and reduces the risk of introducing dirt or debris back onto the car’s surface.
  3. Avoid Automatic Car Washes: Whenever possible, avoid automatic car washes that use brushes or harsh chemicals, as they can be abrasive and may degrade the ceramic coating. Opt for hand washing or touchless car washes that use high-pressure water jets to clean the vehicle.
  4. Dry Properly: After washing your car, use a clean, soft microfiber towel to dry it. Avoid air drying or letting water evaporate on its own, as it may leave water spots or mineral deposits on the surface. Take extra care to dry areas where water tends to accumulate, such as around mirrors, emblems, and door handles.
  5. Regular Inspections: Periodically inspect the condition of the ceramic coating. Look for any signs of damage or degradation, such as water beading or sheeting diminishing over time. If you notice any areas where the coating has worn off or is compromised, consider applying a maintenance product or seeking professional reapplication.
  6. Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Refrain from using harsh chemicals or solvents on the coated surface, as they can degrade the coating over time. This includes acidic cleaners, degreasers, or products containing strong solvents. Stick to mild, pH-neutral cleaners specifically formulated for automotive use.
  7. Avoid Rough Contact: Be cautious with objects that may scratch the coating, such as abrasive sponges, brushes, or dirty towels. When drying or performing maintenance on your car, use clean, soft microfiber towels or applicators specifically designed for use on automotive surfaces.
  8. Additional Protection: Consider using a spray sealant or ceramic coating booster as a maintenance product to enhance the existing coating’s performance. These products can help revitalize hydrophobic properties and provide added protection between regular maintenance washes.
  9. Professional Maintenance: Depending on the specific ceramic coating and its recommended maintenance schedule, it may be beneficial to have professional maintenance performed. This can involve applying a maintenance coating, performing paint decontamination, or conducting paint correction if necessary.
