Why do ceramic coatings have a hardness rating? Ceramic coatings have varying degrees
of hardness and different amounts of silica content. This composition provides a certain level of
protective resistance for your car’s paint from light scratches, UV rays, some road chemicals
and bird dropping. The best ceramic coatings on the market have a 9H hardness rating.
How will the ceramic coating be applied to my car? Once your vehicle is decontaminated
and prepared we apply the ceramic coating by hand using a special applicator pad one panel at
a time. It then cures at room temperature over the next 24 hours, during which the vehicle
cannot get wet.
How long does ceramic coating last? Our Ceramic coating will form a long lasting chemical
bond with your paintwork. Actual durability will vary depending on the types of conditions your
vehicle is exposed to and how well the paintwork is maintained. The chemical resistant properties of our ceramic coating means it will not be washed off during your regular wash routine. Neglecting your paintwork, such as failure to wash the vehicle regularly, abrasive washing processes or the use of polishes will reduce the performance and durability of the ceramic coating.
Will ceramic coating protect my car from scratches and stone chips? No, ceramic
coatings, along with other chemically applied treatments do not offer protection from scratches
and stone chips. It will however provide resistance to light scratches due to its 9H hardness
rating which is much stronger than factory clear coat.
Can my car be ceramic coated even if it is not a new vehicle? Yes, ceramic
coating can be applied to almost any vehicle, but older vehicles tend to need more preparation and polishing before a application of a ceramic coating. Please contact us for a custom quote.
