FAQs about Ceramic Coating

Benefits of ceramic coating

Better gloss, better UV protection, better optical clarity, better bird bomb protection, slightly better scratch or marring resistance and much, much easier to wash

How long does ceramic coating last on a car

If the car is washed and maintained properly, 2 years through to 5 years. If it’s washed and maintained poorly the paint will start to look like junk way before the coating is compromised

Wheel ceramic coating benefits

Easier maintenance/cleaning. Protects the underlying materials

Best ceramic coating for rims

Pyramid Car Care 5 year offers the best high temperature performance (KKD R-Evolve offers 1350+ temp protection so I don’t know how that compares)

Best sio2 ceramic coating

Pyramid Car Care Professional 5 year is a fantastic blend of gloss, protection and water behaviour

Glass ceramic coating benefits

Improved visibility. Looks cool when it’s raining

Can you apply ceramic coating over ceramic coating

Some you can, some you can’t! It depends on the chemical make up of the two coatings and even the cure time between layers. In order to to get the very best performance, follow the manufacturers instructions

Cost for ceramic coating a car

Small hatchbacks like a FIAT 500 with a 2 year coating start from £300 with appropriate preparation. There is no real ceiling in price as it’s all about the preparation but something like a Bentley Bentayga with 5 year protection would start at around £800 with basic preparation

How to remove scratches from ceramic coating

Once the coating is fully cured after 5 days, a very light machine polish will help to reduce or remove mild scratches

Can I clay bar a ceramic coated car

You can clay ceramic coated cars but make sure the car is chemically decontaminated first of all as this should negate the need to clay. If you do have to clay I would suggest using the softest clay you can find, warming it up in hot water, and with the use of a shampoo/water mix, very lightly clay the glass first to “break” the clay in.

Once you’ve done the windscreen for example, make sure the clay is spotless and lightly clay one section of paint. Check the clay is clean, or mould it into a clean, fresh surface and repeat the process. Remember, if you drop the clay, bin it. And if you leave marring behind the coating will need a super light polish afterwards.

General rule of thumb is that if you need to clay your coated car, you’ve left the chemical decontamination too long

How to apply 9h ceramic coating

Same as any other coating. On well prepared paint, with good lighting and allowed to cure properly before release into the wild
ceramic coating for matte paint car

Pyramid Car Care Premium is a great coating for all finishes including matte and satin finishes, whether painted or wrapped

Can you polish ceramic coating

Ish. You won’t be able to do much beyond a very, very light polish and it’s not recommended unless you’re a professional or prepared to recoat the polished area

Can you put sealant over ceramic coating

Yes, but any product used on top of a coating will then dictate the water behaviour so if you use a less hydrophobic topper you’ll get less hydrophobicity for example

Ceramic coating Vs PPF

Two different products with one common aim. Protecting the car’s paintwork. PPF is better from an impact prevention point of view. It resists stone chips better and the film thickness can easily be up to 180 microns! The downside with PPF is cost and applications. You can’t PPF alloys, exhausts or glass. Ceramic coating can be applied to just about any material, and is so much cheaper than years gone by. With the latest coating technologies protecting a daily driven car with coating can make a massive difference to the ownership experience without costing the Earth

Ceramic coating problems

Poor preparation. Not managing expectations with what is and isn’t possible. Poor application. Poor maintenance

Disadvantages of ceramic coating

The one potential downside with coatings is a condition known as mineral affinity. Basically, minerals attract other minerals so the silicon dioxide for example present in some coatings, subject to a million variables, may attract minerals in tap water like calcium and magnesium so when the water evaporates, it may be more prone to water spotting. Proper wash techniques and products mitigate this completely
