What is a ceramic coating?
There was once a wagon before the car, a horse before an engine, a boat before a plane, and wax before ceramic coatings. The point is in this modern day we now have far more superior and durable options when it comes to protecting your vehicle’s paint from external elements like rain, dirt, bird droppings etc..
An automotive ceramic coating is a semi-permanent liquid layer that bonds to the vehicles surfaces(i.e., paint, glass, chrome and more). It is commonly referred to as a sacrificial layer to absorb the everyday beating your car takes when driving or even sitting if left outside.
To further the understanding of the workings of a ceramic coating here's this. Wax is like having a tent to protect you in the forest. The ceramic coating is like having a brick house to protect against the elements. Both offer protection from rain and dirt but one is nothing like the other.
The chemical solution that makes up the ceramic protection makes it super adaptable and hyper durable even so it could be applied both to the exterior of the vehicle but also to the interior.
We provide Atlanta's Ceramic Coatings with mobile convivence and premium profesionall service.
The Benefits of a Ceramic Coating
There are a lot of perceived expectations of what a ceramic coating can and can’t do. Some are more true than others but we make sure to not oversell its capabilities.
Here are some benefits that come with having your vehicle ceramic coated:
One of the best durable options to protect your paint anywhere from 1-7 years plus!
One time application to get long lasting durability
Creates a deep level of gloss almost like candy that is incomparable to other forms of protection.
Provides unrivaled hydrophobic qualities to keep your car cleaner for longer and easier to wash.
The options we provide for ceramic protection include a basic polish to enhance the paint before application. We highly suggest getting the enhancement to enjoy all the benefits of the coating. Without any Paint Correction services it does make it cheaper but we can not guarantee the true longevity of what we advertise.
The prep work and proper correction services to what separates a professional ceramic coating installer.
Typically without proper services done before the application smudges(high spots) and premature durability failure occur. This happens due to the liquid not being able to properly bond with said surface.
The longer the durability of the coating the harder the process is to apply. In order to have a successful bond it is important to know the weather conditions since it would directly affect the job. Since different coatings react differently to temperature and humidity, we prefer to apply the ceramic protection inside a garage if possible, if not we do have coatings that can be applied outside.
Common Myths about Ceramic Coatings
Even while ceramic coatings are hard and durable we do want to break any misconception of the protection aspect. While it is one of the best ways to protect your paint, we do stress that you can’t do whatever you want to it and expect the protection to hold up.
As in most things in life there are limitations to it, and it's important to understand those limitations so that you know what it can and can’t do.
The coating won’t make your paint scratch proof. As we say especially for our more durable coatings it is scratch resistant, we honestly mean light induced scratching usually from proper washing and drying.
The metal zipper and finishings on your clothes can scratch it. If you took a dirty wash mitt and dragged it across the paint you could scratch it.
The coating will not protect against rock chips. We would recommend paint protection film(PPF) to protect against rock chips.
No matter how many layers of wax or ceramic coating protection we apply it in no way can stop the impact of a rock hitting your vehicle.
The coating will require maintenance to prolong and ensure the full durability. As with a lot of things, if you don’t take care of it, it won't last.
We offer Maintenance Plans that fit exactly your vehicle to properly wash, dry, and boost the coating to get the maximum durability. We recommend this due to the sole fact that if you were to get a 7 year coating from us and no plan to take care of the coating after. It will very well fail after 3 years, maybe even sooner depending on the condition.

Why are Ceramic Coatings so expensive?
While there are reasons to explain why the coating can be cheaper. There are some things that you pay for expertise and assurance that the job will be done right and well. This is one of them.
The time alone that our jobs average is 8 to 24 hours due to the process being so meticulous. This is a one time application to get the long term protection, not months but years. We are certified and trained installers so our expertise is also a contributing factor.
Ceramic Coating FAQs
Do you have a shop?
No, we are completely mobile. Every one of our coatings except the 7 year option can be applied and cured completely outside, with proper weather conditions.
Can I wash the car after the coating has been applied?
After the coating has been applied it needs to cure to properly bond to the surface, during that time the car shouldn’t be introduced to water in any way. We also offer a free wash 2 weeks after application to do a final inspection and address anything that needs to be addressed.
Can the Coating replace my clear coat?
Even though the coating does act like a sacrificial layer of clear coat, it does not in any way act as a replacement or restoration of a failed clear coat. Usually when we see this we recommend body shop work since it would be outside of detailing and correcting.
Can I get the Ceramic Coating without the prep work or correction?
Every case is different, we do suggest talking to one of our technicians to see if your vehicle could do this and still reap most of the benefits but yes this is possible.
