What is ceramic paint protection:
Ceramic paint protection is a set of auto detailing techniques and products that provides superior protection to a vehicle's surface using nano technology sometimes referred to as glass or ceramic coatings. These coatings provide a very durable and hydrophobic surface which makes the paint surface highly water repellent. It also protects from the everyday harshes of driving, environmental and weather conditions. It is basically a semi-permanent protective barrier to your car's paint. This is not to be confused with film paint protection which is a clear film bra product.
How ceramic coating is applied:
We start the process by giving the vehicle a thorough wash. We then remove all road tar, sap, contaminants by using specialized cleaners. From there the paint is clay barred to provide a smooth surface for the polishing stage. Once the clay bar smoothing has been completed, the paint is polished to remove and correct any defects such as swirls, scratches and oxidation. After this step the surface is cleansed to remove those polishing oils so to allow the proper adhesion of the ceramic coating. Ceramic coating is now carefully applied for maximum protection.
Products we use:
We use various products to wash, polish and correct the paint's surface prior to application of the ceramic coating. The ceramic coating we use is CQuartz by CarPro who have been providing ceramic coatings for quite some time. In order to properly apply CQuartz Ceramic, temperatures must be at least 50 degrees as well as no forecasted rain for 24 hours. This makes sure the application has the maximum amount of time to cure and adhere to the paint.
How long does it last:
A lot longer than traditional waxes which can last approximately 6 to 8 months. A CQuartz application can last up to 3 years with proper care and maintenance
