Understanding Ceramic Coating

A ceramic coating serves as a sacrificial shield for your vehicle’s paintwork. Beyond just a protective layer, it’s designed to make maintenance seamless and hassle-free.

How does it compare to wax?

At a basic level, both ceramic coatings and waxes are protectants for your car’s paint. However, ceramic coatings are in a league of their own in terms of durability and resilience.

Application Procedure

The success of ceramic coating lies in its meticulous application process. It starts with preparing the car surface, which involves cleaning and decontaminating. Then, the ceramic solution, a concoction of silica dioxide or siloxane nano-diamond suspended in a solvent, is applied. As the solvent evaporates, what’s left is a robust protective layer. However, it’s crucial that the paintwork is immaculately clean; any oversight could lead to the coating not bonding well, which could result in its early wear.


Ceramic coatings come packed with a plethora of advantages. Top of the list is their lifespan. Our entry-level coatings can last up to 18 months, while the premium variants can shield your car for up to 4 years. Additionally, they have superior hydrophobic and oleophobic properties, ensuring that water and other contaminants are easily repelled. Lastly, brands like C-Quartz Professional and D-Quartz augment the car’s gloss, giving it an unparalleled shine.

Maintenance Post Coating

Once your car is coated, it doesn’t demand intensive maintenance. Traditional methods like polishing or waxing might even be detrimental to the ceramic layer. Instead, periodic simple washes and treatments every six months should suffice to maintain its sheen.


No two cars are the same, and hence the time taken for the process can vary. While the application of the coating is generally completed in a day, it’s the prep work, which is pivotal for a flawless finish, that can be time-intensive.
