COMMON MYTHS ABOUT CERAMIC COATINGS




Yes, coatings are long-lasting, extremely durable, and create a crazy gloss on your finish, but that does not mean your vehicle is bulletproof and you can do whatever you want. Coatings have limitations and it is important to understand what to expect from a coating.


We often hear customers misunderstand the protection aspect of the coating and are then disappointed when something happens to the finish over time.




To begin, the coating WILL NOT make your paint scratch-proof. When we say the coating will resist light swirls and scratches, we genuinely mean light blemishes that might be induced when improperly washing and drying the vehicle or environmental elements. Following this further, if you use a dirty wash mitt or any aggressive/abrasive washing method such as non-touchless machines, you will scratch the paint. If you use a brush that is included at coin washes, you will destroy your coating and paint.


Also, the coating will not protect your paint from rock chips. The only real protective option that can actually minimize rock chips damage will be paint protection film (PPF). No matter how many layers you apply of any ceramic coating or wax protection, it cannot stop the high impact of a rock hitting your vehicle.

Lastly, the coating still requires maintenance to keep its performance optimal. Just like many other things of value, if you don’t care for the coating, it will degrade overtime and not last it’s intended lifespan. You have to properly care and maintain the coating for maximum durability and lifespan. A 5-year coating can start to underperform and break down at year 3 if it is not maintained properly.
