Is A Ceramic Coating Right For Me?

Updated: Jun 21, 2023

Ceramic coating the paint on your vehicle is an excellent option because it can protect your finish against contaminants and minor scratches. In many cases, ceramic coating is worth it, although it is not for every car owner, and the following guide will help you decide whether or not it’s right for you.

First, it is important to understand that ceramic coating is not a one-size-fits-all solution when protecting your paint, as some people will love it, and others may feel disappointed. In most cases, ceramic coating is recommended for vehicles driven regularly in all conditions and for vehicles with paint kept in near-perfect condition. Ceramic coating is also ideal for cars that are washed often with the right products and techniques and for cars that can benefit from being washed quickly and easily.

Ceramic coating is not the same as a sealant which would be better for vehicles that get very dirty and cannot be washed right away and for cars that are likely to be dented or scratched.

The ceramic coating has several benefits, including better protection when compared to waxes or sealants. This product will last longer, especially when professionally applied, and will repel dirt and water, making your car easier to clean. It will also protect you from harmful UV rays and chemical stains while providing your automobile with a beautiful gloss. However, your vehicle will not be scratch-proof as ceramic coatings are scratch-resistant but not scratch-proof, so you cannot confuse this information.

Another myth you should be aware of is that ceramic coatings are excellent for people who do not care for their cars. This is false because while ceramic coatings provide high levels of protection, they can get dirty and leaving grime and dirt on your coating will make your vehicle harder to clean. The contaminants will stick to the coating, and your pH-neutral soap will have difficulty removing them.

It’s also important to note that not just anyone can apply a ceramic coating, and it’s best to leave this task to a professional because skill and experience are required. Professionally applied ceramic coating will offer the most protection for the longest time.

Bottom line; ceramic coating will provide your vehicle with many benefits, but maintenance and care are required to protect your investment.
