Ceramic Paint Coatings ( SiO2) are an anti-static, weather-resistant, scratch resistant nano-ceramic coating that protects your vehicle like no traditional wax or paint sealant can.

 

They work on the molecular level to transform the surface. Once treated, your vehicle will repel water and contaminants, and it will maintain a clear, hard-as-nails finish. One application can last  up to three years, even longer (with proper maintenance*)!!

A treated vehicle stay cleaner longer, require less frequent polishing, and require no additional paint protection.

Here is a short video that explains ceramic coatings in pretty simple terms...

Ceramic Paint Coatings Provide:

  • Ultra-hard coating of up to 9H on the Pencil Hardness scale (ASTM D3353). Contains covalently bonded ceramic nano particles, which create an extremely hard finish that is scratch-resistant and durable. The average thickness of a coating layer is between 0.7 µm ~1.5 µm. Layers can be stacked for a higher level of protection

  • Weather-resistance. Provides durable protection against rain,snow and ice, sun, salt, and anything else Mother Nature throws at it. The anti-corrosive coating holds up in all weather conditions.

  • High gloss shine. The SiO2 molecules bond to the surface filling in microscopic scratches, marring and pores in the paint resulting in a deep, reflective shine.

  • Water, oil, and chemical proof finish.  Provides incomparably strong water and oil repellent properties. This hydrophobic effect  helps to prevents water spots and oily stains from (road film) attaching to the paintwork.

  • Smooth, dirt repellent surface. Particles fill in tiny swirls and imperfections in the paint to make it microscopically smooth. Therefore, dirt and dirty water cannot settle into any crevices and stick to your paint. The finish is also resistant to bugs, UV rays, acids, and salts. Plus, the slick surface is anti-static and washes off easily.

  • Anti-Calcium Effect. Resists mineral deposits from bonding to the vehicle's surface so water spots can be wiped off much easier.

  • Detergent-resistant protection. Coating cannot be removed by water, alkalines or other detergents, even by pressure washers!  It can  last up to three years! (with proper maintenance)

  • Self-cleaning effect. Most dirt and debris will not stick in the first place so you may find yourself washing your vehicle much less often.

 

For the best results, preparation on your vehicle is of upmost importance to provide the longest lasting and best performing coating.  A wash and decontamination process is used to remove all impurities. A one step ( at a minimum ) will remove imperfections, swirl marks and marring is then completed. This will remove 60-80% of these imperfections, further correction will require additional correction steps with more aggressive compounds.   Coatings are only a protectant so you want a clean and polished surface before applying any type of ceramic coating. After paint correction, the whole surface of the car is cleaned with an isopropyl alcohol mixture to remove and residue from the polishing oils. The surface MUST be perfectly clean for the resins to properly bond to the surface.

 

  "When your vehicle is looking its best, applying a ceramic paint coating will freeze it in that condition. It's like pressing pause on your paint"

Nano technology has taken the car care industry by storm, but  Ceramic Quartz Paint Protection raises the bar of what nano technology can do for cars. Ceramic coatings makes it possible to preserve your vehicle in its original condition with much less time and effort spent on maintenance.

The Silica-based coatings put the latest advances in Nanotechnology in the cutting edge of automotive protection paint coating technology. They bond to paint, glass, metal, and plastic at a molecular level, effectively becoming a functional element of the vehicle’s surface. This coating’s hard hydrophobic, glass-like finish helps to protect your vehicle from weathering, UV-damage, industrial and organic fallout, acids, alkaline, light wash-marring and abrasion for up to 3-years whilst making it easier to clean than ever before. If you find maintaining your vehicle’s beauty a challenge, it’s time to experience what Ceramic Paint Coatings can do for you!

Coatings can be applied to virtually any surface: glass, wheels, plastics, leather, and rubber.

  • Glass surfaces will repel water and snow & ice buildup. Under most situations, water will bead up and roll right off at speeds higher that 30mph.  Think Rain-Ex ®, but on long lasting steroids!!

  • Wheel coatings will repel road grime and even be resistant to brake-dust build up, making the so much easier to keep clean and looking amazing all year!!

  • Your plastic and rubber trim pieces will keep a dark hue with UV inhibitors and also be hydrophobic to prevent road grime build up and resist unsightly water spotting and oxidation resulting in graying & fading.

  • There are coatings designed for interior uses too such as carpets, upholstery and leather surfaces.

    • Fabric and carpeted surfaces are coated to encapsulate fibers in a protective layer that resist fluids from soaking into them. Spills will sit on the surface where they can be blotted up quickly and easily, resisting soiling and preventing odors, allergens and bacteria from setting in.

    • Leather surfaces are treated to resist body oils and soiling from getting ground in to the surface of your seats. Leather steering wheel wraps and shift knobs will stay looking new for years! UV protection and dye transfer from jeans and dark colored clothes are minimized to keep your leather looking (and smelling) great!

                                                                                                  

 

OK, so there are a few thing that coatings cannot do, no matter how hard they may be or how thick they are applied. They are not a miracle product. Amazing, yes.....but.....with limitations.

  • They are scratch resistant, not scratch proof. Improper washing habits or drive thru car washes will instill scratching and marring in your car. It does not damage your clear-coat, which is protected by the coating, but the coating will suffer the damages and will be visibly apparent, needing to be compounded off and re-applied to the vehicle. 

  • Proper washing and drying is very important to the life and performance of your new coating. Click on the button here:                              for guidelines to safe wash methods.

  • Coating do have to be maintained minimally. They are not a apply and forget about it product. I highly recommend having a Coating Maintenance visit every four to six months. This will consist of a wash &  dry, water behavior / repellency evaluation and an application of a booster product to keep the coating lasting as long as possible.

  • Water spotting from not drying your car after washes or from sprinkler systems will still occur on your coated car. Yes, water will roll off much better and the amount sitting on the paint will be reduced, but and water left to dry on the surface will leave spots from the minerals and other contaminated found in all water. A treated water system at home or found in some DIY car washes are a safer option, but should still be dried with a clean, soft microfiber towel.
