Once the wash and decontamination are done, we then typically polish the vehicle’s paint, depending on the condition of the paint, client’s expectations, and budget. . This is addressed in our FREE consultation, prior to any work being completed. Once all that is done, we apply a paint prep product to further ensure that any polishing oils or other contaminants are removed from the surface. · Prep is the most important part when ceramic coating a vehicle. • A clean surface allows for better bonding which allows the coating to do its job, which is to PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT. · At this point, we begin the application process according to brand and industry standards. This whole process takes several hours to complete. . Turnaround time is usually the same day or next day.

Paint Protection Results

WHAT ARE THE TOP 6 BENEFITS OF A CERAMIC COATING?

A quality Ceramic Coating, creates a permanent hydrophobic surface over your vehicle’s factory clear coat. This hydrophobic surface makes it more difficult for dirt, mud, and grime to bond with your car’s paint. As a result, your car stays cleaner for a longer amount of time.

The hydrophobic surface created by a Ceramic Coating also means that when the time does come for a wash, your car will be easier to clean. Water will pick up dust or dirt and sheet off your paint.

A Ceramic Coating is about 100 times thicker than a traditional wax. That means it provides substantially more protection than a normal sealant. The chemically resistant surface helps mitigate stains and etching caused by environmental contaminants like bird-droppings or bug-splatter. After applying a Ceramic Coating, it is still important to remove naturally acidic contaminants from your paint as quickly as possible. However, your layer of Ceramic Coating will minimize damage and help protect the factory paint and clear coat underneath.

Another potential danger for your paint is oxidation caused by UV exposure. This results in a faded look to your paint. A Ceramic Coating is UV resistant, meaning that your paint will be protected from fading

The ultra smooth surface that a Ceramic Coating creates enhances the reflective properties of your car’s paint. The result is that your car will really pop with gloss and shine. Especially after a fresh wash, your car’s paint will have that beautiful just-been-waxed kind of look, without having to spend time applying wax!

A Ceramic Coating does all of this with just one application! Unlike a traditional wax or sealant, a Ceramic Coating does not wash away or break down and does not require repeated application every few months. After one application, your vehicle experiences all of the above benefits for up to 7 years.
