Ceramic Coatings

Ceramic coatings are the latest advancement in paint sealing and protection products.

Most people are familiar with the 3 key roles of a traditional car wax:

  1. To improve the gloss of the paint
  2. To protect the paint finish from water, dirt and other contaminants from settling on and permanently damaging the surface
  3. To make washing and drying faster and easier due to the wax’s slickness and hydrophobic characteristics

Ceramic coatings have been engineered at the molecular level to improve on all of those characteristics and deliver radically improved longevity.

Classic natural carnauba car waxes generally protect a vehicle’s paint for 2-4 months before it needs to be reapplied to maintain protection. Modern over-the-counter polymer & synthetic car sealants improved on that by delivering to 4-8 months of protection.

Ceramic coatings deliver the amazing clarity and gloss of a natural carnauba wax, but can also deliver consistent water-beading and chemical protection characteristics for over 5 years. Due to the hardness of the cured coating, ceramics also reduce the incidence of scuffing and scratching that comes over time from washing and drying cycles.

These coatings are so well regarded that some coatings like Ceramic Pro come with multi-year warranties, and car documentation services like CarProof now mentions if a car has received a ceramic coating – because it boosts resale value and demonstrates a long-term investment in maintaining the vehicle in top condition.

NOTE: Because of the “semi-permanence” of these products, we highly recommend performing paint correction prior to the application of a ceramic coating so you can seal in a perfect finish without any scuffs, scratches or haziness.
