A Ceramic Coating is a liquid polymer that is applied by hand to the exterior of a vehicle. The coating chemically bonds with the vehicle’s factory paint, creating a layer of protection. A Ceramic Coating creates a permanent or semi-permanent bond with a vehicle’s paint, meaning that it does not wash away or break down and does not require repeated application every few months. In order to install a ceramic coating and allow it to perform at it’s full potential, the paint must be corrected and free of all imperfections. These imperfections include; swirls, scratches, iron contaminants, hard water spots, tree sap, and marring. Imperfections in the paint can be caused by improper washing methods, brushing up against the vehicle, automatic car washes, and more.
