Discovering the Brilliance of Ceramic Coating Today!

Ceramic coating has become a popular solution for preserving the aesthetic and protective qualities of a vehicle’s paint. This advanced product is a liquid polymer that chemically bonds with the car’s factory paint, creating a durable layer designed to:

  • protect, guarding against environmental hazards like UV rays, dirt, and chemical stains
  • enhance, adding a glossy sheen to your car’s paint, making the car consistently look new
  • preserve, extending the life of the paintwork by reducing the need for frequent touch-ups and detailing.

If you want to maintain the showroom shine of your vehicle, while adding an armor-type finish to protect against the natural and chemical elements it faces daily, ceramic coating offers an effective solution. Automobilia Auto Salon specializes in applying high-grade ceramic coatings designed to meet the needs of both car enthusiasts and everyday drivers who demand the best for their vehicles.

What is Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that is applied to the exterior of vehicles. It bonds chemically with the factory paint and forms a protective layer over the car’s paint.

The primary ingredient in ceramic coatings is silicon dioxide (SiO2), which comes from silica, a type of sand. High-quality coatings might also contain titanium dioxide (TiO2), enhancing their protective attributes by making them more resistant to UV rays and environmental pollutants.

The Application Process

Applying ceramic coating involves several steps:

  1. Cleaning: The car’s surface must be immaculately clean. Any dirt, grease, or wax residues must be removed.
  2. Decontaminating: This step involves using specialized chemicals to remove any contaminants that bond with the paint, like tar or iron filings.
  3. Polishing: The vehicle’s paint is polished to remove any imperfections, ensuring that the coating can form a perfect bond with the paint.
  4. Application: The ceramic coating is applied manually with a sponge or cloth. It’s spread evenly over the car’s surface in a thin layer.
  5. Leveling: After application, the coating is leveled out to avoid any high spots or pooling, which can create visual imperfections.

Curing Time

Once applied, the treatment needs time to cure. Curing is the process where the coating hardens and fully bonds to the paint. This process can take a few hours or up to a few days, depending on the specific product and environmental conditions like humidity and temperature. During this time, it’s crucial that the car remains dry and away from adverse weather conditions.

At Automobilia Auto Salon, we ensure that the environment is optimal for curing, using controlled conditions to achieve the best results. Our expert application ensures that your vehicle not only receives  superior protection, but also exhibits a glossy, eye-catching finish that stands the test of time.

In the next section, we’ll explore the extensive benefits of ceramic coating, detailing how it protects your vehicle and keeps it looking pristine.

Benefits of Ceramic Coating

Ceramic coating offers multiple benefits that enhance both the functionality and aesthetics of your vehicle. Here’s why it’s a popular choice among car enthusiasts and everyday drivers alike:

Protection Qualities

Ceramic coatings excel in providing a robust layer of protection against various environmental threats:

  • UV Rays: Just like sunscreen for your skin, ceramic coatings protect your car’s paint from the sun’s harmful UV rays, preventing fading and oxidation.
  • Chemical Stains: From acidic rain to bird droppings, these coatings create a barrier that prevents chemicals from damaging the paint.
  • Scratches and Dirt: While not invulnerable to physical damage, the slick surface of a ceramic coating reduces the risk of scratches and makes it difficult for dirt and grime to adhere.


A major appeal of ceramic coatings is the stunning visual effect they offer:

  • Glossy Finish: After application, your vehicle boasts a glossy, vibrant finish that enhances the underlying paint color.
  • Enhanced Color Depth: Colors appear richer and more intense, giving your car a showroom-quality appearance.


One of the most significant advantages of choosing ceramic coating is its durability:

  • Long-Lasting Protection: High-quality ceramic coatings, like those applied at Automobilia Auto Salon, can last from two to five years, depending on maintenance and environmental conditions. This longevity surpasses that of traditional waxes or sealants, which require more frequent applications.

Maintenance Ease

Ceramic coatings also simplify vehicle maintenance:

  • Easier Cleaning: The hydrophobic properties of the coating mean water beads up and rolls off the surface, taking dirt and grime with it. This means you wash your car less often, and when you do, it’s much easier.
  • Less Need for Waxing: Since the coating itself provides a high level of shine and protection, the regular application of wax is no longer necessary.

At Automobilia Auto Salon, we specialize in applying premium coatings that arm your vehicle against wear and tear while ensuring it looks its best. By choosing our professional services, you not only enhance your car’s durability but also preserve its aesthetic appeal over time.

In the next section, we’ll cover how to maintain your ceramic-coated vehicle to ensure it continues perform effectively.

The Application Process

Applying a ceramic coating to your vehicle is a detailed process that requires careful preparation and precise application techniques. At Automobilia Auto Salon, we follow a meticulous process to ensure the best results. Below, we outline the steps involved in applying a ceramic coating.

Surface Preparation

Proper surface preparation is crucial for the success of a ceramic coating application. Here’s how we prepare your vehicle:

  1. Cleaning: We start by thoroughly washing the vehicle to remove all dirt, grime, and contaminants from the surface.
  2. Decontaminating: Next, we use a clay bar to remove any embedded surface contaminants that washing alone may not eliminate.
  3. Polishing: We then polish the surface to correct any imperfections like swirl marks or scratches, ensuring a smooth and even surface.
  4. Final Wipe: Before applying the coating, we use a specialized cleaner to remove any oils or residues, ensuring the ceramic coating adheres properly.

The application of ceramic coating requires precision and expertise. At Automobilia Auto Salon, we use the following techniques:

  1. Applicator Pad: We apply this by using a soft, suede applicator pad, which ensures an even and consistent layer.
  2. Small Sections: We work on small sections of the vehicle at a time, typically 2×2 feet, to maintain control over the application and ensure thorough coverage.
  3. Leveling: After application, we carefully level the coating with a microfiber towel to avoid any high spots or unevenness.

Curing Environment

The environment in which the ceramic coating cures is just as important as the application itself. Here’s what we ensure during the curing process:

  1. Temperature Controlled Environment: The vehicle remains in a temperature-controlled environment to prevent premature curing or any environmental contaminants from affecting the coating.
  2. Time: The ceramic coating typically takes about 24 hours to cure. We may use infrared curing lamps to accelerate this process and ensure a hard, durable finish.

By following these detailed steps, Automobilia Auto Salon ensures that your vehicle not only looks its best but is also protected with a high-quality ceramic coating. In the next section, we’ll cover how to maintain your ceramic-coated vehicle to keep it looking shiny and new.

Frequently Asked Questions about Ceramic Coating

When considering ceramic coating for your vehicle, you likely have a few questions about its benefits, durability, and the type used by professionals. Let’s address these common queries to help you better understand why ceramic coating might be the right choice for your car.

Is ceramic coating good for your car?

Absolutely! Ceramic coating offers several benefits that make it an excellent choice for protecting your vehicle:

  • Protection: It creates a strong barrier against water, dirt, and UV rays, which can fade and damage your car’s paint over time.
  • Ease of Cleaning: The hydrophobic properties of the coating make cleaning your car much easier. Dirt and grime will wash away with less effort, keeping your car looking cleaner.
  • Enhanced Gloss: Ceramic coating adds a deep, rich gloss to your car’s paint, enhancing its appearance and maintaining that ‘new car’ look longer.

How long do ceramic coatings last?

The longevity of ceramic coating is determined by the product quality and the environment in which the vehicle is maintained. Typically, professionally applied ceramic coating like that offered by Automobilia Auto Salon can last between two to five years. Some top-tier coatings even offer protection that extends up to a decade, provided the car is well-maintained and regularly inspected.

What kind of ceramic coating do professionals use?

Professionals choose high-grade ceramic coatings that are significantly more durable and effective than over-the-counter products. At Automobilia Auto Salon, we use premium ceramic coatings that contain a higher concentration of SiO2 (silicon dioxide), which ensures a thicker, more protective layer over your car’s paint. These professional-grade coatings are meticulously applied and cured to ensure maximum durability and protection.

By choosing a professional service like Automobilia Auto Salon for your ceramic coating application, you ensure that your vehicle receives the highest quality product and application technique. This not only enhances the appearance of your car but also provides long-lasting protection against environmental elements.

In the next section, we’ll explore the best practices for maintaining your ceramic-coated vehicle to maximize its protective benefits and keep your car looking spectacular.

Caring for Your Ceramic Coated Vehicle

Once your vehicle has been treated with a ceramic coating, maintaining it properly is crucial to extend the life of the coating and ensure your car continues to look its best. Here are some straightforward tips on cleaning, maintaining a schedule, and inspecting your ceramic-coated vehicle.

Cleaning Tips

  • Use the Right Products: Always use cleaning products that are specifically designed for ceramic-coated vehicles. These products will clean effectively without damaging the coating.
  • Go for Gentle Washing: Opt for a soft wash mitt and low pH, ceramic-safe car shampoo. This ensures that you clean the vehicle effectively without scratching the surface.
  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Steer clear of harsh chemicals and abrasive tools which can degrade the ceramic coating over time.
  • Dry Properly: Use a microfiber towel to dry your vehicle as it’s gentle and highly absorbent, which helps in avoiding streaks or spots.

Maintenance Schedule

  • Regular Washing: Wash your ceramic-coated car every two weeks to prevent dirt and contaminants from bonding to the surface.
  • Annual Inspection: It’s wise to have your coating inspected annually by professionals like those at Automobilia Auto Salon. They can assess if the coating needs any special maintenance or touch-ups.
  • Immediate Cleaning of Spills: If bird droppings, tree sap, or other contaminants come into contact with your car, clean them off as soon as possible to prevent staining or etching.

Inspection Tips

  • Check for Gloss and Hydrophobic Properties: Regularly check to see if water is still beading up and rolling off the car’s surface. This is a good indicator that the ceramic coating is still effective.
  • Look for Signs of Wear: Keep an eye out for any areas that might look dull or less glossy, which could indicate wear or damage.
  • Professional Evaluation: During your annual inspection at Automobilia Auto Salon, a professional can provide a more thorough evaluation and advise if any areas need reapplication or repair.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your ceramic-coated vehicle not only maintains its aesthetic appeal but also continues to receive the protective benefits of the ceramic coating. Regular care and proper maintenance are key to the longevity of your ceramic coating.
