HOW TO WASH A CERAMIC COATED VEHICLE

We advise all customers to avoid the brush and soft touch automatic car washes – ceramic coated or not.  Yes, even the soft touch car washes. When was the last time those brushes or “noodles” cleaned? Probably months ago.  In that time, thousands of vehicles have been through them.  This causes dirt, mud, stones, pebbles, and other debris to become embedded in them.  When you finally decide to take your vehicle through – yep, you guessed it – your paint is left with scratches, swirl marks and other nicks in the finish.  The foaming broom or brush in the DIY car wash bays is no different.  Using this on your vehicle’s paint will cause damage. 

Touchless car washes are “okay”. But, continued use can and will cause damage over time.  These car washes use very strong chemicals to break down dirt and grime since they do not use brushes to agitate and remove debris. If you do decide to go to a touchless car wash, opt for the cheapest package. Wax will hinder the performance of the coating.

The ideal way to maintain a ceramic coating is with a proper hand wash.  The “2-Bucket Method” using pH neutral soap is the most safe and effective way to wash a car that has been ceramic coated. We will advise you on the proper products to use to wash and maintain your vehicle.  We keep these pro-grade products in stock for purchase, so no need to wait on shipping!

CERAMIC COATING FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

/01WHAT IS A CERAMIC COATING?

This nano Silica Dioxide protective coating is hand applied after extensive prep work has been completed. Once the coating has properly cured, the result is an ultra thin, glass-like barrier between your vehicle's paint and the elements. Not only does this semi-permanent coating protect against light swirls and etching caused by bird bombs, but hydrophobic properties produce a "self-cleaning" ability as well as significantly improving gloss.

/02HOW LONG DO CERAMIC COATINGS LAST?

Ceramic Coatings durability depends on a number of factors.  The biggest factor, is the substrate the coating is bonding to. 

Certain coatings are meant for certain types of materials.  Ceramic Coatings intended to bond to paint can last anywhere from 1 to 10 years!  Other coatings such as those that bond to wheels, calipers, exhaust tips, and certain types of metals present on motorcycles are meant to bond to services that experience a high amount of heat.  These coatings can last up to 3 years.  On glass, you can expect up to 1 year of durability due to the amount of wear and tear it faces from the wiper blades, road grime and debris.

/03WHAT DO CERAMIC COATINGS PROTECT AGAINST?

Ceramic Coatings protect against a number of things. On painted surfaces such as a vehicles exterior, wheels and calipers, ceramic coatings prevent against:

›  UV damage and oxidation
›  Chemical etching from bird droppings, bug splatter
›  Iron deposits such as break dust
›  Minor water spotting

On Leather & Fabric:

›  Prevents UV damage
›  Spills, staining and color transfer from clothes such as blue jeans

/04HOW IS THE SURFACE PREPARED FOR A CERAMIC COATING?

Depending on the surface the coating is being applied to, prep can be a very lengthy process.

The surface goes through a multi-step wash and decontamination process to clean and remove contaminates from the surface.  The surface is then goes through a paint correction to remove small scratches and swirl marks and ensure a smooth surface for application. Once the paint correction has been completed, the surfaces is then cleaned once again with a special solution to remove any oils that have been left behind by the compound and/or polish. The coating is then applied by hand and cured in a climate controlled garage.

/05HOW IS A CERAMIC COATING APPLIED?

Ceramic Coatings are applied by hand using a special applicator and cloth. The coating is applied to the entire surface in overlapping motions to ensure no spot is missed.  Several towels are needed to level the coating and sure that no high spots are left. These high spots can cure leaving semi-permanent imperfections on the surface that requires polishing to remove.
The vehicle sits in a climate controlled environment to ensure to allow the ceramic coating to cure.

/06WHAT IS THE MAINTENANCE FOR A CERAMIC COATING?

Coating durability also is largely based on maintenance.  Hand washes are always recommended to maintain a ceramic coating.  Just like a wax, abrasion can wear away the coating, which is why we advise against automatic car washes.  These wreck havoc on your vehicles paint. Contrary to what you may have been told, a ceramic coating does not protect against the damage caused by automatic car washes. 

/07HOW MUCH DOES A CERAMIC COATING COST?

The cost of a ceramic coating will vary from vehicle to vehicle. There are a number of factors that go into the prep of the vehicle that can adjust the price. We offer several different types of pro-grade coatings with different durability ratings. These can also adjust the price of the service. 

We will discuss this pricing with you when you bring your vehicle by the shop for the initial inspection. We will give you the best options for your vehicle and keeping your budget in mind!
