WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The ceramic coating is a sacrificial layer of protection that effectively seals the paint to ensure no contaminants can build up in the grooves and stick to the paint.
It has hydrophobic properties that actively repel water and assist to keep your vehicle looking cleaner for longer and also making it much easier to clean.
As good as ceramic coating is, there are some things you need to be aware of. It is not a suit of armour for your car that can stop:
stone chip damage
protection from collisions or hail
you do still need to wash your car regularly
If the correct preparation is not carried out and there are imperfections in your paint they WILL be locked in.
If your paint is:
scratched down to the metal
Then these would need to be corrected before the ceramic coating is applied or the coating will not be effective or warranted.
