What is Ceramic Coating

 
Ceramic Coating is a liquid nano-coating based on silicon dioxide that bonds with vehicle’s paint and creates a layer of protection and a unique glass-like finish. It makes your car’s paint more resilient, easier to clean, and stays clean longer. It is also heat and cold resistant, which is essential with Ontario’s weather. 
 
Ceramic Coating can protect your car from UV rays, stains, dirt, swirl marks, bird droppings, road grit, insect acid, chemicals, tree sap, rust, brake dust, salt and other mineral deposits. 
 
It is important to understand Ceramic Coating is not an alternative for Paint Protection Film, which provides much stronger protection. However, it is a premium alternative for wax with additional protection, and it will not wash away or break down like wax over a short period of time.
Ceramic Coating is applied by hand to a vehicle’s exterior, interior, glass, or wheel rims and creates an invisible protective layer that ensures a long-lasting shine as well as protection from light abrasions.
