What is Ceramic Coating?

Are you tired of taking time out of your schedule to have your vehicle washed & protected? Is your vehicle not as glossy or perfect as you'd like it to be? These problems have hounded auto owners since the first Model T rolled off the assembly line. Luckily, modern technology has made maintaining your vehicle easier than ever.

Water Beads on Ceramic Coated Paint

Ceramic coatings contains a chemical called Sio2 (silica dioxide). This chemical is the primary component found in glass and is what gives glass its strength and durability. Ceramic coating creates a glossy, hard and sacrificial barrier over the surface of your paint to shield abuse from harsh chemicals, UV rays, bird droppings, mechanical abrasion (dust and dirt while driving) and much more. One or more layers of ceramic coating will protect your vehicle for years, rather than months. Lastly, ceramic coatings make any surface they bond to very hydrophobic or slick (making it very easy to wash and maintain). After all, “protection” is key for anything we value and enjoy in life.

When installing a ceramic coating, it is important to have a professional do the preparation and installation. A coating will fail prematurely if the surface isn't prepped correctly as the coating will not adhere to the paint. Our detailers are trained on both the prep work and the installation to make sure that you get the most life out of your coating. Properly installed coatings can last 2-4 years.
