Ceramic Coating on New Cars 2 Years Apart – Great Service!

This is the second time I’ve used Pyramid Car Care to look after a new car with ceramic coating. Booking in way easy, I dropped them a message on WhatsApp and they responded within a few minutes. I drove my new car straight out of the showroom and over to them and picked it up glossy and shiny, really blown away at the difference. Highly recommend them, booking in with them when I get a new car is the new must do for me.

A breeze to apply…

First time ever using a ceramic coating. Was abit nervous about the whole process as it was a DIY job from myself.

Was a breeze to apply and buff off following the simple instructions on the box.

First wash today since applying and must say the car seemed to look cleaner for longer and made washing the car even easier, especially drying!

The whole range of ceramic coatings is super easy to use…

Great coatings, really impressive with excellent gloss levels.

The whole range of ceramic coatings is super easy to use, even outside thanks to its fast curing characteristics.

We have been using PCC’s Premium Ceramic Coating for long enough to know that the claims of longevity for their ceramic coatings are spot on

Your questions about Ceramic Coating answered…

What is ceramic coating and how does it protect my car?

Pyramid Car Care ceramic coatings are designed to offer complete surface protection for your car, from the exterior paint work to the inner wheel barrel, and everything in between.

Ceramic coating works by creating a crystal clear protective layer on virtually any surface area of your car. Just nanometers thick, ceramic coating creates a smooth-to-touch surface that repels water, dirt and other contaminants that might otherwise stick to your car’s surfaces. This water-repellency (or hydrophobicity) helps to keep your car clean and makes maintenance easier as well as offering UV protection against dulling and fading.

We always recommend applying Ceramic Coating after machine polishing work, to get your paintwork and plastic trims near perfect, and then locking in that new-car-look with a ceramic coatings that last up to 5 years, dependent on which product you choose.

What are the benefits of ceramic coating?

There are a wide range of benefits to ceramic coating including:

  • Protects against UV damage, oxidation and environmental contaminants
  • Resists scratches and swirl marks
  • Enhances the gloss of your paint finish
  • Reduces dirt adhesion to make washing easier
  • Provides a hydrophobic layer that repels water for a long lasting shine
  • Leaves the paintwork smooth to touch

In addition to the benefits you can see and feel there are emotional benefits to having your car ceramic coated to:

  • Feel proud driving around in your newly ceramic coated car.
  • Get compliments from friends about how great your car looks.
  • Enjoy seeing the same glossy finish on your car years after ceramic coating was applied.

What is Ceramic Coating made of and why?

The active ingredient in Pyramid Car Care ceramic coatings (Ceramic Coating Pro, Ceramic Coating New Era and Ceramic Coating Premium) is SiO2. SiO2 (silicon dioxide, otherwise known as silica) is one of the most widely used compounds in Ceramic Coatings and there’s good reason for that – it works!

SiO2 coatings have a tight-knit chemical structure which provide an impermeable layer that repels liquids, prevents oxidisation, protects against chemicals and UV rays. Pyramid Car Care ceramic coatings are formulated to chemically bond with a car’s surfaces and to provide a 9h hardness. Additionally, SiO2 offers extreme heat resistance making it perfect for automotive applications.

Other compounds exist including SiC and Graphene, however SiC has a lower hardness rating making it more susceptible to light scratches and swirl marks and graphene is less widely available and more expensive due to the mining process required to source it.

When should I use Ceramic Coating?

Interest in Ceramic Coating has grown exponentially over the last 10 years, replacing wax and sealants as the #1 product of choice for paint protection.

As you can see in the chart below, interest in Ceramic Coating really began to grow in 2017 but it was only recently in 2022 and 2023 that ceramic coating overtook car waxes as the most commonly searched paint protection product for cars.

How should I apply Ceramic Coating?

Pyramid Car Care ceramic coatings are design for ease of use, and have been described as “the easiest ceramic paint protection for your car” by WhiteDetails on YouTube.

If you can afford to book your car in with a professional – it’s always best to get an experienced ceramic coating installer or car detailer on the job.

If you would prefer to Do-It-Yourself see the guide below. If you need further assistance we offer Ceramic Coating Training, and we’re never further than a phonecall away if you need support on 01905 382690.

What you’ll need:

  • 50ml of Ceramic Coating (is usually enough for small, medium and large cars, more coating may be needed for larger vehicles)
  • 1 x Ceramic Coating Applicator (included free with every purchase at pyramidcarcare.co.uk)
  • 1 x pair of nitrile gloves
  • 2 x microfibre cloths

Before application:

  1. Before application wash and dry surfaces
  2. Before application ensure the paintwork is fully decontaminated and if paint correction is required, complete this prior to application
  3. Before application prepare the surface by wiping over with IPA or Panel Wipe to ensure best adhesion

Apply Ceramic Coating by hand in 15-20 minutes (once your vehicle is prepared), with a ceramic coating applicator.

  1. Pour 3-6 drops of ceramic coating on your applicator
  2. Working on one panel at a time, apply the ceramic coating using the ceramic coating applicator in small section, following a cross-hatch pattern
  3. Wait for the ceramic coating to flash and the oil slick pattern to stop moving (note: flash times vary per product, see packaging or product page for more info)
  4. Wipe away any excess residue using the 1st clean microfibre cloth
  5. Buff the section with the 2nd clean microfibre cloth, ensuring that all residue has been removed, and no patches or high spots remain
  6. Follow steps 1-5 through each panel of the car until the entire car is coated

The ceramic coating will dry within 20-30 minutes, you should not get the vehicle wet during this period, you should not drive the vehicle and you should not use any other chemicals on or near the car.

Over the next 4 hours the coating will cure. Once the first 4 hours is complete, it is safe to drive the car and get the car wet. However you should avoid any contact with chemical for up to 3 days to allow the ceramic coating to fully harden to 9h.

How much Ceramic Coating do I need for my car?

Pyramid Car Care ceramic coating cover approx. 115 sq feet per 50ml. Our suggested quantities based on vehicle size are as follows:

Small car – upto 2 layers

Medium car – 1 and a half layers

Large car – 1 layer

Motorcycle – 1-2 layers

Our Ceramic Coatings can also be applied to motorhomes, trucks, trailers, fire engines and other large vehicles. Please contact us to calculate how much product you need, and bulk quantities.

We do not recommend or advise that you stretch coverage or try to get more layers or vehicles than advised above (per 50ml) as this can lead to reduced performance and some panels performing differently to others.

Pyramid Car Care ceramic coatings are versatile coatings that can be applied to a wide range of vehicles and surfaces.

  6. Boats: Ceramic coatings can be applied to the hulls of boats to protect against saltwater, sun damage, and other environmental factors.
