What is Ceramic Coating?
A Ceramic Coating is a liquid ceramic polymer that is applied by hand to the vehicle’s surface. Specially formulated coatings may also be applied to other areas including Glass, Brake calipers, Plastic trim, Headlights and more. After a full decontamination and polish, ceramic coating chemically bonds with the vehicle’s clear coat, creating an extra layer of protection. Ceramic Coatings provide the highest gloss and shine of any paint protection solution.
A Ceramic Coating bond lasts as long as the factory specifications for that particular coating, which can range from 12 months all the way up to 9 years. Coating duration is based on a daily driven vehicle. If the car is not driven every day, the coating will last that much longer. Unlike waxes, which require applications every 3 months and are susceptible to breaking down due to the elements, a Ceramic Coating is durable and lasting and does not wash away or break down.
Think of wax like makeup, it makes the car look great until the first wash. After that first wash, the car is back to bare clear coat and very susceptible to scratches and swirls when washing.
Unlike ceramic coating which is a semi-permanent bonding to the clear coat. As long as the vehicle is washed with ceramic safe products, the ceramic is guaranteed to last the length specified from the factory.
It is much harder than a clear coat and it is hydrophobic, which means water does not stick. Ceramic Coating has a contact angle of 115 degrees which is why you will see water bead off leaving no trace of water trails.
Benefits of Ceramic Coating:
Ease of Cleaning
What We Do
What is the Process?
wheel and tire cleaning
First step in the process is to do a proper wheel and tire cleaning to remove all iron, tar, and scum picked up from the road.
Full paint decontamination
Second step is to do a full paint decontamination by hand washing with a proper soap.
A full iron decontamination of the clear coat to ensure the entire vehicle is at its most bare with no contaminants trapped in the clear coat.
After the vehicle is decontaminated, we use a drying towel to dry the vehicle and pull it inside to get out of the sun.
Check Using Bright LED
The paint is then checked using a bright LED light to reveal any remaining contamination, scratches, and swirls. A clay bar is used to remove any remaining contaminants.
After the surface is 100% clean, we polish to remove scratches and swirls from the clear coat. Polishing removes any oxidation and acts as a primer to give the coating a perfectly smooth surface to adhere to.
Once the entire vehicle is polished, we spray a product designed to break down polish residue and remove any polishing dust as we do a final wipe down of the car.
Time to Coat.
After the final wipe down, the car is ready to coat. Ceramic coating is applied by hand to ensure proper adhesion to the vehicle.
