Testing The Toughness Of Ceramic Pro ION

The abrasion machine in the video will test the INSANE TOUGHNESS of the ION coating. The machine has fine steel wool pads on the bottom of the shaft.

The steel wool scratches the surface with 60 oscillating motions per minute while applying 2.2 lbs of pressure (Good luck trying THAT with a competitors coating!).

This test is performed on coated mirror steel panels to detect even the slightest defects.

What Makes Ceramic Pro ION Different?

Ceramic Pro was the first company to introduce the original 9H ceramic coating that allowed installers to apply multiple layers for maximum protection and lifespan. With advancements in manufacturing technology, Ceramic Pro has once again revolutionized the ceramic coating industry by launching Ceramic Pro ION Base Coat, and ION Top Coat.

Ceramic Pro ION is a two-component ceramic coating system that uses ION Exchange Technology to fuse multiple coating layers into a single, durable, and robust protected surface. This technology strengthens the atomic bond within the two coatings and the original substrate, resulting in a ceramic coating that is twice as durable, robust, and long-lasting as traditional nanoceramic coatings.

This Next Generation Ceramic Coating is only available at Ceramic Pro Elite Dealers.

Ceramic Pro ION is the most protective coating available and the future of surface protection.

Carolina Ceramic Pro Coatings

When it comes to ceramic coatings for cars, Columbia has never seen a ceramic coating like this! Ceramic Pro ION is a giant leap forward in the evolution of nanoceramic paint protection coatings. 
By using the time-proven superior qualities of Ceramic Pro 9H and combining it with ION exchange technology Ceramic Pro’s new ION surface coating surpasses every other ceramic coating in every way.   
When ION exchange is applied to Ceramic Pro, it causes the chemical tempering of the glass-like nanoceramic coating. The end result is a stronger, high-density, and longer-lasting bond. This is the same process used in creating ultra-hard screens for smartphones.
Not only does this ceramic coating surpass all the benefits of every top-tier paint protection coating, but it also surpasses them in virtually every aspect, and has a quality that was considered impossible for a nanoceramic coating: It’s outstanding resistance to abrasion takes ION to a league of its own in terms of protection from wear and tear. Ceramic Pro ION is the future of automotive paint protection and the perfect way to protect your car or truck from the harsh elements that are common in Columbia, South Carolina.

In 2011 Ceramic Pro 9H was released and became the industry standard in nanoceramic coating technology. Today, the most popular term in cermaic coatings is the term “9H”.  Ceramic Pro ceramic coatings are the only coatings that have been extensively tested for over a decade. Today, Ceramic Pro ION is quickly becoming the game-changer in the world of automotive surface protection. With a hardness and scratch resistance that dwarfs other coatings.

Not all ceramic coatings are the same, and no other coating will protect your car better than a Ceramic Pro coating.  


One of the best benefits of Ceramic Pro coatings is that they create a hardened shell on your vehicle’s painted surface. This hardened shell establishes a barrier between the elements and your car’s painted surface, effectively sealing in that beautiful shiny car look that was previously difficult to maintain. This hardened shell is many times harder than the clear coat on your car. When fully cured, Ceramic Pro’s ION coating becomes an ultra-hard, tempered glass shell on the surface of your vehicle, yet it remains as flexible as the paint on your vehicle.

Ceramic Pro coatings have self-cleaning properties and lower surface tension, preventing environmental contaminants from bonding to the surface. Water easily removes dirt from the surface by encapsulating it while rolling off the surface.

What Is Paint Protection Film (PPF) or Clear Bra?

Kavaca paint protection film is thermoplastic urethane  ( TPU) self-healing film applied to painted surfaces of a new or used car in order to protect the paint from stone chips, bug splatters, and minor abrasions.
