How is the ceramic coating applied to the vehicle? 

Ceramic coating is carefully applied by certified technicians as a liquid, one panel at a time, covering the exterior painted surfaces. The paintwork is firstly decontaminated and prepared to ensure the coating achieves a good bond to the paintwork. The key is making sure the vehicle’s exterior is cleaned thoroughly before the ceramic coating is applied to make sure the coating adheres to the vehicle properly. 

How long does ceramic coating last? 

The duration in which the ceramic coating lasts depends fully on the type of coating, the environment it is being driven in or stored, and how well the ceramic coating is being maintained. Ceramic coating is a highly bondable material that can last many years if it is maintained properly. It is recommended to use microfiber cloths to wash the exterior of your vehicle with ceramic coating. Ceramic coating is resistant to chemicals and shampoos, but overtime going through car washes, you may begin to notice scraping or pealing of your coating. A thorough hand washing is preferred. 

What does ceramic coating do?
These very resilient coatings will give superior protection against light surface scratching caused by poor washing. Harmful UV rays, graffiti, dirt build-up, premature aging and oxidation, weathering, bird droppings, brake dust, and even help prevent acid rain stains. Think of it as a screen protector for your phone, but for the exterior of your vehicle.
