Ceramic paint protection applied to: all exterior paint & plastic/plastic trim, exterior windows, windscreen specific coating, wheel faces & door jams.
A car’s paintwork ALWAYS needs a layer of protection on it to stop damage from contamination and our harmful sun. A regular wax will only last a couple of months (when looked after correctly. Or 1 wash if done incorrectly). So a Ceramic coating that will last years is your best option.
The coating will make the surface of that paint extremely water repellent, which means washing and drying is effortless. The easier it is to wash, the more likely you are to actually do it and keep your car in top condition.
No. No ceramic coating will provide protection against impact damage/stone chips.
While a ceramic coating does provide ‘some’ resistance to swirls and wash marring, it should in no way be relied upon as an invisible barrier and won’t prevent scratches. We will provide details, instructions and recommendations on how to best look after your ceramic coating.
There are many varying factors that will determine the durability of your coating.
You can expect a car that is always garaged, only driven on weeks and is always kept clean to last for 4+ years.
A car that lives on the street, always parked in the sun and is only washed once in a blue moon may only last a couple of years.
Unfortunately, if and when you read the fine print of any warranty provided by a Ceramic Coating Manufacturer, you will quickly realise that it’s just a marketing ploy to make you feel all warm and fuzzy and not worth the paper it’s written on. Many people purchase a coating because of the warranty, only to find when it comes time to claim that it is null and void. Others buy because of the warranty but wouldn’t know if the car was coated or not so will never claim anyway.
We stand by our work and the durability of a coating comes down to the preparation of the paintwork or surface it is being applied to. That is why will decontaminate and polish EVERY car regardless of age, to ensure the perfect result EVERY time.
It’s important to regularly wash your car to keep the surface free of contaminants that can clog the pores of the paint. Once a month is recommended at a minimum but fortnightly or weekly is best. Be sure to use only high quality, plush microfibre wash mitts, towels and cloths on your freshly coated car.
There are a few simple steps and processes to take when washing your car regardless if it’s coated or not. You can view and download a PDF of the EXACT same wash procedure that we use HERE with all the recommended products.
Yes! A highly polished surface ensures the coating has the best possible surface to bond to, resulting in maximum coating durability.
Another reason is that even a new car will have some marks on it from being transported from the manufacturer to you. We want the absolute best possible finish for you so polishing allows us to remove these while adding incredible gloss to the paintwork.
