Ceramic coatings are a great way to make maintenance for your vehicle easier. It can eliminate the need to wax or polish your car, you don’t have to worry about etching from bugs, bird poop, tree sap, road salts, ocean or paint overspray. It even protects against damage from harmful UV rays. You enjoy superior gloss and slickness while also protecting your vehicle. But what is it exactly? Simply put, ceramic coatings are polymer-based liquids that we apply by hand. They’re specifically formulated to bond with the paint on your vehicle to provide a hard-wearing layer of support and protection against the elements. In other words, ceramic coatings are the vehicle protection of the future that allow you to protect your investment.
Having a ceramic coating on your vehicle is the perfect way to enjoy an extra layer of protection. Whether your goal is to protect your vehicle from harmful UV rays, bird droppings, and chemical stains, make sure there’s a deep shine so it looks its best, or to make it easier to clean, you’re in luck. Simply put, ceramic car coatings are a great way to help keep your car looking as good as (or better than!) new while also ensuring that you have minimal maintenance to complete. It’s the ideal solution for those looking for a way to make sure their vehicles are more resilient to the weather while making the cleaning process a breeze.

Just periodical decontamination washes to de-clog the coating.

With SiC ceramic coatings, you enjoy long-lasting protection for your vehicle.

No, however, a ceramic coating is an amazing sacrificial layer that can take more abuse than factory paint and clear coat. Yes, it is a hard-wearing surface that has amazing release properties. This will help reduce swirls and marring of the surface. This also adds to the depth of your factory paint system, and this will keep your factory clear coat at the same depth for years to come! (We do not perform machine polishing in our detail department.)
No, you will still need to wash your car. The more we maintain the ceramic coating with regular washes, the less contaminations will embed into and clog up the ceramic coating performance. A ceramic coating does need to be washed because this coating will ensure that the vehicle stays cleaner longer, is easier to maintain, and you don’t have to deal with all of the extra maintenance like waxing, polishing, and worrying about harsh elements your vehicle faces day in and day out. A Ceramic Coating creates a permanent or semi-permanent bond with a vehicle’s paint, meaning that it does not wash away or break down and does not require repeated application every few months like a typical wax product.
