Ceramic Coating

Is ceramic coating good for your car?

Ceramic Coatings are a state of the art protection for your car’s paintwork which offers excellent resistance to light scratches & swirl marks.  The best ceramic coating also grants a layer of protection from contaminants such as bird droppings or tree sap.

By comparison, paint protection film offers a more comprehensive layer of protection & has the added benefit of being self healing.

The ceramic coating that we use is very hydrophobic (repels water) which helps ensure water beading and a superior gloss finish.
Unlike many sealant packages, once applied no more waxing will be required.

When it comes to car cleaning, ceramic coating also makes it much easier to clean your car.
Especially if you’re using snow foam or car shampoo!

So yes, ceramic coatings are definitely good for your car.

Ceramic coating is a protective layer that’s applied to the exterior of your car. It helps to prevent scratches, swirl marks (from poor washing technique) and provides a barrier against contaminants.

The price of ceramic coating can vary depending on a few factors such as the size of your car (larger cars generally require more ceramic coating) etc and your own unique requirements.

Please note we also carry out a careful polishing of the vehicles paint surface to enhance the finished look. This is completed prior to application of the ceramic coating & is included within our prices.

How long does a ceramic coating last?

Ceramic coatings offer an excellent solution for shielding your car’s paintwork from everyday scratches and damage. With the proper maintenance, the best ceramic coatings (ones we use) can last between 3 to 5 years or approximately 30,000 to 50,000 miles, although several factors influence their longevity.

Mileage, in particular, is the most significant enemy of even the best ceramic coating, with higher annual mileage accelerating the coating’s deterioration. However, with fewer annual miles and good weather conditions, a ceramic coating can last for years before any degradation in protection occurs.

While the number of miles the coating has on it outweighs the number of years since it was applied, other factors, such as road and weather conditions, can also impact the coating’s longevity.

In colder climates / snowy areas, for instance, the high-impact parts of the vehicle, including the frontal areas like the bonnet and bumper, mirrors, and lower door areas, may wear out faster due to sand and road salt. However, even with this accelerated wear, a ceramic coating will still provide superior protection compared to the erosion of your paints clear coat, which could result in irreversible paint damage and costly repainting.

Ultimately, ceramic coatings offer a practical solution to protect your vehicles paint, and with the right care, you can enjoy its benefits for years to come.
