Best Ceramic Coating Option?

Firstly, What is a Ceramic Coating?
A Ceramic Coating is an Si02 (silica compound) based coating used to create an invisible layer of protection on top of your cars paint work. The Si02 is a combination of other durable compounds and active solvents designed to permanently bond to your cars paint, giving your car an extra layer of protection against environmental fallout, increased gloss and hydrophobic water beading properties so your car stays cleaner and is easier to clean.

The industry has evolved from waxes to now ceramic coating products, which are far more durable, have a much greater level of protection and last longer.

However, there are now a lot of ceramic coating brands on the market, which can make finding the best product difficult and time consuming.

The steps generally involve:

Decontamination Car Wash – A thorough wash to fully remove dirt, debris, and older layers of wax (in some instances).

Iron & Fallout Removal – The second step involves removing microscopic ferrous-based materials that can be embedded in the clear coating of vehicle paint. This involves using an Iron Remover (which is a chemical spray that dissolves these contaminants in a few minutes). The second part of fallout removal is using a clay bar.

Prep Polish – This is followed up with a prep polish, even if you have a newely delivered Tesla we still polish it to ensure we are acheiving maximum gloss and removing any minor imperfections.

What a Ceramic Coating will not Protect

Ceramic coatings provide a high gloss, hydrophobic & easy to clean barrier between the vehicle’s paintwork and the external environment. 

Benefits include UV protection from the sun’s harmful rays, protection against damage from bird/bat droppings & tree sap. 

A good quality ceramic coating is highly durable and will provide years of protection providing it’s well maintained using safe washing methods.

Scratches , Swirls and Stone Chips

There is alot of misinformation about ceramic coatings protecting the vehicle’s paintwork against scratches (mainly) and stone chips, this simply is NOT the case. 

Ceramic Pro 9H has been independently tested by SGS and results show that the hardness of the coating is above 9h pencil hardness. 

While this provides some scratch resistance for instance will reduce scratching/marring during maintenance washes, it will not prevent scratches from contact from –  keys, brush washes, trolley contact at shopping centres or contact with shrubs/plants while off-roading. 

Tap Water Spotting 

Tap or town water is treated with various minerals to allow us to safely consume it. 

Depending on the area you live in the hardness (high mineral) or softness (low mineral) of water can vary. 

When left to dry on paintwork, these minerals are capable of penetrating the paint surface causing stains. 

In some cases the staining can become very difficult to remove. 

A ceramic coating will not prevent water spotting however the ceramic coating will absorb the stains instead of the paintwork.

How to Maintain a Ceramic Coating

Now that you have invested in Ceramic Pro protective coatings to protect your asset it is still important to regularly maintain the vehicle via a washing step.

The key benefit of Ceramic Pro coatings are; maintenance becomes easier because dirt and debris are less likely to bond tight to the paint due to the hydrophobic properties & slickness of the coatings. The vehicle will also remain cleaner for longer.

Outlined below are simple steps that will make washing your car a safe and enjoyable process. Utilising these safe washing methods will ensure your ceramic coating will perform over the long term.

Basic Equipment

  • Microfibre Wash Mitt (avoid foam sponges).
  • Microfibre Drying Towel (avoid synthetic or leather chamois).
  • PH Balanced Car Shampoo.
  • 2x Large Buckets.
  • Hose.

Now We’re Getting Serious Equipment

  • Pressure Washer.
  • Snow Foam Bottle Attachment (matched for the pressure washer lance).
  • Blow Dryer.
  • Wheel Woolies/Brushes and bucket dedicated to wheel washing only.
  • Grit Guards.

Basic Washing Method

When possible wash in a shaded area.

  1. Using dedicated wash media for wheels only, clean wheels. If using the same wash bucket, clean it out before refilling it for the wash process.
  2. Fill bucket 1 with soap water (as per car shampoo instructions) and bucket 2 with regular water
  3. Rinse down the vehicle with the hose.
  4. Dunk wash mitt into soapy bucket 1 and starting from top to bottom, wash a section of the vehicle using light back and forth passes. Now rinse the mitt off in bucket 2 to remove dirt and debris from the mitt.
  5. Repeat section 4 until the entire vehicle has been washed.
  6. Rinse down the vehicle
  7. Dry the vehicle using the microfibre drying towel.

Little More Than The Basic Wash Method

When possible wash in a shaded area.

  1. Utilising the pressure washer and snow foam bottle attachment, pre-soak the vehicle in a layer of snow foam (as per snow foam instructions). This will assist in loosening dirt contamination prior to washing.
  2. Insert grit guards into buckets. Utlisise steps 1-6 of the Basic Wash Method however you can now use the pressure washer instead of the hose.
  3. Using an air blower, dry the vehicle however we prefer to use both the air blower and drying towel at the same time.


Things To Avoid

  1. Hosing off a vehicle only – There have been incidents where people believe simply hosing off the car and walking away is a suitable wash method. This is far from ideal and we strongly recommend avoiding this. Town/tap water has been treated with various minerals that can potentially stain the coating/paintwork when left to dry, particularly when exposed to the sun.
  2. Automatic Car Washes – Automatic tunnel wash machines are too aggressive for vehicle paint work and will cause marring and scratching over the long term.
  3. Bird Droppings – Ceramic Pro coatings are designed to protect the paint work from degrading due to the uric acid in bird droppings however we still recommend being diligent when noticing it by safely removing it as quickly as possible. If the vehicle has been freshly washed simply soak a microfibre towel, rest it over the dropping to soften it (if dry) and carefully scoop it up and away from the paintwork. Avoid rubbing as droppings can contain seeds and other abrasive contents that can scratch the paintwork.

What To Do If You Don’t Have Time To Maintain Your Vehicle

Touchless Car Wash – This is an automated car wash machine that applies various chemicals to the vehicle, rinses and blow dries it. You simply drive in and out and it’s done. We do recommend having a microfibre drying towel on hand as the blowers don’t do the best job at drying the vehicle. Once you exit the machine, park the vehicle and properly dry it down.

Car Hand Wash Service – A much better option than automatic car wash however do some research on the service and workmanship quality.

Detailer – Aqcuire the services of a detailer that specialises in maintenance washing. A detailer will provide the safest & best wash method possible however be prepared to pay a premium.

What is a Ceramic Coating?

Essentially a ceramic coating is an additional clear permanent layer of surface protection technology that bonds with the factory clear coat of your automotive investment.

In a most cases OEM paint systems are made up in several stages.

  1. Substrate – Metal, plastic, carbon etc.
  2. Primer – Primer is applied to the substrate. The primer assists in proper bonding of the base coat.
  3. Base Coat – This is the colour coat of the vehicle.
  4. Clearcoat – This is the top layer of the paint system that protects the colour coat and where the shine comes from.

Ceramic Pro, our ceramic coating of choice is developed using nano-ceramic technology. Ceramic Pro permananently bonds to the factory finish and is 2-3 times stronger than most clearcoats.

Ceramic coatings aide in the prevention of clear coat oxidisation and are much more durable to environmental fallout, such as bird dropping etching, acid rain damage, uv damage and tree sap damage. Ceramic coatings possess higher scratch resistance than the factory paint but please note that ceramic coatings are NOT scratch proof.

Ceramic Coatings last much longer than any paint sealant or wax.

The true advantages of ceramic coatings are in the hydrophobic, super slick & high gloss finish. Due to this cleaning the vehicle is much easier. Dirt simply encapsulates into the hydrophobic water beads and rolls away known as the self cleaning effect. Future waxing and polishing is not necessary.

So if you want the best form of protection for your car, bike or any other automotive investment a ceramic coating by Ceramic Pro is the right choice.

5 Key Benefits of Ceramic Pro Paint Protection

  1. UV Protection 

Ceramic Pro paint protection will protect your vehicle’s paint from harmful UV rays. If left unprotected, the paint on your vehicle can degrade when exposed to the sun’s UV rays. In extreme conditions the paint can become heavily oxidised and peel away from the substrate which is known as clear coat failure.

In cases like this the only remedy is to repaint the vehicle which can be very costly. Ceramic Pro paint protection will protect your vehicle’s paint from harmful UV rays.

2. Protection from Environmental Fallout

  • Bird Droppings
  • Tree Sap
  • Bug Splatter
  • Tar
  • Oxidation. 
  • Rail dust

If left unprotected these forms of contamination can permanently bond and etch to the paint surface causing damage that would require repainting. 

3. Hydrophobic Repellency 

Ceramic Pro will leave the surface feeling super slick due it’s hydrophobic properties. This means liquids that come into contact with the coated surface will simply bead up and roll away known as the self cleaning effect. 

The vehicle will stay cleaner for longer which reduces the amount of maintenance required and when washing is required it is much easier. 

4. Future Waxing & Polishing Not Required

With proper maintenance, Ceramic Pro’s unique formula leaves a permanent high gloss finish meaning that future polishing and waxing is not required. 

5. Chemical Resistance

Ceramic Pro’s layer will provide the best protection from damaging environmental contaminants and harsh chemicals
