What is a ceramic coating?

You may have heard about car ceramic paint coatings or been offered one or something similar when buying a new car. A ceramic coating is a highly effective layer of protection which when correctly applied by a professional detailer to your cars paint, can last for years. These coatings are highly hydrophobic, so they repel water and dirt. They are resistant to UV rays, strong chemicals and can even help to reduce the risk of etching from bird muck and the fine scratches known as swirls.

Is a ceramic coating suitable for my car?

Absolutely, whether its brand new, or a classic car, any vehicle can have a ceramic coating applied to its paint. These coatings are clear and aside from adding gloss and long lasting protection to your car, they do not affect the colour or look of your car.

How does a ceramic coating work?

A ceramic coating forms an extremely strong bond to your cars paint, which last years rather than months as a normal wax or sealant would. They can only be removed by abrasion, such as sanding or machine polishing. The coating becomes the new outside layer of your paint, meaning the glossy paint underneath is sealed in, while the coating protects your car from the elements. This means that once applied your cars paint looks just as beautiful and glossy after each wash for years to come. It's worth bearing in mind that any defects in the paint such as fine scratches (swirls) will be sealed in after the coating has been applied, so before application, all the vehicles I work on are given at least a single stage machine polish prior to a ceramic coating. This ensures the paint has been leveled and the majority of swirls and light scratches have been removed. Click here for more information on machine polishing.

Which parts of a car can be ceramic coated?

Its not just the paint which can be protected with a ceramic coating - almost every surface can also be coated: the wheels, windows, and plastic trims too, giving total external surface protection.
