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.

This hard glass shell on the surface of your car is designed to resist abrasion, and ultimately prevent swirls and minor scratches. The impenetrable coating will protect your paint from the harmful UV rays and prevent contaminants from becoming embedded in your paint. As a result, your vehicle doesn’t show signs of aging, but is able to maintain the new car look it had when first purchased.

Ceramic coatings are super slick extremely easy to clean. A brushless wash or a pressure washer will do a great job of cleaning a ceramic coated car.

 Ceramic coatings can be removed with heavy abrasion and carwashes with spinning brushes are very abrasive. If you use a carwash with spinning brushes regularly, you could cause damage to you ceramic coating. 

This Is No Spray On Coating!

Once fully cured, Ceramic Pro ION has nearly twice the hardness, density, and longevity of older first generation coatings. A typical first generation coating has a hardness level of 9H or even slightly above 9H. Ceramic Pro ION is off the scale and cannot even be measured by the same hardness test as first generation coatings. The increase in hardness makes Ceramic Pro ION  the hardest paint coating on the market today. This new tempered glass shield gives your vehicle’s paint a new level of abrasion resistance and preserves the original factory paint.
Any surface scratches that happen in the coating are easily removed with light polishing which will not weaken the integrity of the original clear coat. In addition, the tempered glass coating in Ceramic Pro ION  will protect your cars paint from fading or age due to it’s UV protection. Think of Ceramic Pro ION as an additional clear coat layer, only much harder, much more dense. All of this allows for more peace of mind and a fuller enjoyment of your vehicle, even in harsh environments.
Glossy, slick, and self-cleaning. The ion exchange technology in Ceramic Pro ION Base Coat allows the Ceramic nanoparticles to fill the smallest pores in the paint, which creates a new ceramic glass shield. Next, ION Top Coat causes a chemical tempering of that  glass shield. Your vehicle will be shiny, smooth, and incredibly slick or hydrophobic. Ceramic Pro ION creates an impenetrable glass shield, preventing environmental contaminants such as bird droppings, bugs, dirt, tar, and graffiti paint from bonding to the surface, or causing paint damage. Water easily removes dirt from the surface by encapsulating it while rolling off the surface. This is called the self-cleaning effect.
Ceramic Pro ION is engineered to be permanent protection. It is a one-time application if maintained correctly. Once the Ceramic Pro glass shield has cured it can only be removed through heavy abrasion like very aggressive componding, or wet sanding. This puts Ceramic Pro ION in a category by itself, compared to sealants or waxes that degrade quickly.
