Looking To Have Your Car Ceramic Coated?

Ceramic Paint Protection

We are authorised and accredited installers for Gtechniq and Gyeon Quartz brands of ceramic coatings which are all backed with a manufacturers 5 Year warranty.

Through relentless testing and evaluation processes, we found that the Gtechniq & Gyeon Quartz brands of coatings met our strict criteria for performance, looks, and durability. We are very particular with our coating brands, and we value their marketing strategies just as much as we do their performance. Many coating companies significantly overstate (over-hype) things like hardness levels, durability, and chemical resistance in hopes that unknowing detailers and consumers will follow along. We, on the other hand, wish to have long-lasting relationships with our clientele and therefore chose not to work with companies that promote unrealistic performance.

What Is A Ceramic Coating?

The easiest way is to understand Ceramic Coatings are to think of them as a second layer of skin, or a sacrificial layer of protection over your car’s clear coat/lacquer.

Based on SiO2 technology, the complex nano particle structure offers exceptional bonding of the coating to the surface providing long term protection to every surface (paintwork, alloy wheels, glass & metal) of your vehicle. This is real protection from harmful environmental factors such as UVA and UVB rays, acid rain, pollution, bugs, tar, bird droppings and many more contaminants that are looking to damage your car.

A ceramic coating forms a 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 like a carnauba wax or synthetic sealant would.

A ceramic coating repels dirt and water like nothing else, which makes them easier to clean.

A Ceramic Coating is not a substitute for Paint Protection Film, which provides a more comprehensive form of defensive against stone chips, scratches and minor abrasions.

Benefits Of A Ceramic Coating

In short, a Ceramic Coating adds additional protection to your car’s exterior and helps keep it looking like-new with comparatively minimal maintenance. The coating achieves this result by making your vehicle more resilient and easier to clean. Below are the main benefits:

Cleaning Car Is Much Easier

One of the most significant features of a Ceramic Coating is that it is hydrophobic (repels water). When a vehicle has a hydrophobic Ceramic Coating, water will bead on the surface and slide off more easily. This means that dirt will have a more difficult time bonding to your vehicle’s paint, and when you wash your car, contaminants can be removed with less effort.

Protection From UV Damage

If a vehicle is often exposed to the sun, its paint will begin to oxidise, resulting in dulled and faded paint. A layer of Ceramic Coating protects a vehicle’s paint from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, thereby reducing the amount of oxidisation.

Protection From Chemical Stains & Etching

Another danger for your car is chemical staining from naturally acidic contaminants. By creating a chemically resistant surface, a Ceramic Coating can keep some contaminants from bonding to your vehicle’s paint. The result is that your vehicle will be more resistant to staining and etching, provided the contaminant is removed in a timely manner.

Enhanced Level Of Gloss

If you want your paint to pop with gloss, you will want to add a Ceramic Coating. A good Ceramic Coating enhances the reflective properties of your car’s paint and clear coat, adding to the depth and clarity of the paintwork.

What Does a Ceramic Coating Not Do?

Eliminate the Danger of Stone Chips, Scratches or Swirl Marks

The scratch-resistance of a Ceramic Coating is often exaggerated. Though some small scratches can be repelled by a Ceramic Coating, a coated vehicle will not be completely resistant to the risk of stone chips or scratches. Furthermore, improper car washing techniques or automated car washes will still create swirl marks on your vehicle’s surface. It is important to know that a Ceramic Coating is not a substitute for more serious scratch or chip protection (such as Xpel Ultimate Paint Protection Film), nor does it eliminate the need to wash your car in a proper manner in order to avoid swirl marks.

Eliminate The Need To Wash A Vehicle

Let’s face it, the road is a dirty place. If you are driving your car, it will get dirty, Even with a Ceramic Coating, you will still need to wash your car regularly in order to maintain its look. The benefit of a Ceramic Coating is that the cleaning process will be easier. Moreover, having a Ceramic Coating means that you will no longer have to wax your vehicle every few months, eliminating a significant part of maintaining your car’s exterior. Thus, a Ceramic Coating does not make your vehicle maintenance-free, but it does mean that with less work you will be able to maintain better results.

Eliminate The Risk Of Water Spotting

A normal drop of water contains a certain amount of dirt or minerals. When water evaporates on your vehicle’s surface, the minerals are left behind, creating visible spots. Detailers and consumers may assume that the hydrophobic quality of a Ceramic Coating will eliminate water spotting, since water slides of the coated surface. While it is true that some water will be repelled from the hydrophobic surface, other water droplets will bead and remain on the vehicle, creating the opportunity for water-spotting.
