WHAT IS A CERAMIC COATING?
It seems like a lot of people are asking the question, "Does ceramic coating really work?" People have seen it on TV and YouTube. The problem is that when you watch videos about this type of product, it always looks so easy to apply. What most people don't know is that there's a whole science behind ceramic coatings and these videos never show you how difficult it can be to get perfect results with this type of coating.
We get it. You want your car to look lovely all the time and you are open to trying anything that’s effective and long lasting.
You have tried all the basic stuff like daily washing and monthly waxing to get rid of those scratches, stain marks, dirt, grime, and what-not. And yet they come back the following day with the additional swirl marks from all the washing.
So, you think of something else. A solution that will make your car look heavenly day in and day out with just little regular maintenance. Something that is a one-time affair against the menace of chemical etching and oxidation: you apply it and then forget about it for years.
Let us introduce you to ceramic coating, the magical potion for cars that everyone’s talking about. We know you have heard about it before. From that friend who recently applied it on his Torch Red Chevy Corvette and who couldn’t stop raving about it.
But what about the naysayers? The critics who doubt about its reliability? Is there any truth in what the critics say about ceramic coating?
Is it really the best solution for preventing dirt and grime sticking in your car? Let’s find out.
Industry-grade ceramic coating is a chemical polymer solution that is applied to the exterior of a vehicle to protect it from external paint damage. Typically applied by hand, it blends with the paint of your car and creates an additional hydrophobic layer of protection.
Due to this chemical bonding and creation of a new layer, the car’s factory paint job remains untouched.
While many car enthusiasts and even detailers believe it to be an alternative to clear bra (paint protection film), ceramic coating, in reality, is a superior alternative to waxing. The main goal is to prevent dirt, grime, and stain marks from appearing on the paint job and ruining the clear coat.

What Ceramic Coating Do We Use?
We offer a 2-year Ceramic Coating manufactured by Gtechniq EXOv4. EXOv4 is an Ultra Durable Coating is a semi-permanent paint coating that will protect virtually any surface of your car! It is the latest technology to help protect your paint for years and enhance the appearance.
EXOv4 is a reformulation of the popular EXOv3. EXOv3 performed exceptionally well in various areas, but a few things stuck out to detailers and Gtechniq noticed that there was room to grow and take this product to the next level. Gtechniq worked hard and sent various samples directly to Accredited Detailers for some real-world testing and feedback. Hundreds of samples were sent to these to detailers all across the world in areas like Asia, Europe, Scandinavia and North America. After this first-hand testing, Gtechniq compiled all of the feedback and got to work and the results are the incredible EXOv4.
The high density ceramic layer is resistant to chemicals ranging from pH2 - pH12. This characteristic also makes bonded contaminants such as tree sap, tar, and hard water spots, easy to remove.
Unlike mainstream wax and organic polymer coatings, EXOv4 can resist much higher and lower temperatures. They resist temperatures as low as -40 to as high as +250 C.

HOW IS THE COATING APPLIED?
Coatings are carefully applied by certified applicator’s as a liquid one panel at a time covering the exterior painted surfaces. The paintwork is firstly decontaminated and prepared to ensure the coating achieves a good bond to the paintwork.
WHAT IS YOUR RECOMMENDED MAINTENANCE REGIME?
We advise that every 12 months the vehicle is thoroughly decontaminated by the removal of any road tar, iron, tree sap and industrial fallout deposits that may have accumulated. Following that we will apply a sealant to rejuvenate the ceramic coating and enhance its hydrophobic properties.
Our Maintenance detail slightly reworked with a different finishing product that contains a sealant is ideal for this.
HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
This will depend on the type of coating and the environment in which the car is driven and stored. There will also be a dependency on how well the coating is maintained. Four instance our Ceramic Coating forms a highly durable bond with the paintwork which can last a number of years on a well maintained car.
The Ceramic Coating is resistant to chemicals so it will not be washed away by strong car wash shampoos and cleaning chemicals. However aggressive car washing with brushes or automatic car washes will reduce the lifespan of the product. We recommend only washing your car with microfiber cloths.
As with any paintwork treatment good regular maintenance is required for the best results and longevity of the product.
Ceramic Coatings can be removed by abrasion such as a heavy cutting compound. Neglect such as failure to wash the vehicle regularly (weekly or fortnightly) can also reduce the performance and durability of the product.
WHAT DO THEY DO?
These very resilient coatings will give superior protection against light surface scratching caused by poor washing. Harmful UV rays, graffiti, dirt build up. premature ageing and oxidation, weathering, bird droppings, brake dust, and even help prevent acid rain stain. Your treated car will not only be easier to clean but it will also stay clean longer do you to it’s super hydrophobic properties. Ceramic coating are second to none when it comes to giving your paint that deep rich reflective gloss and shine.
HOW DO I KEEP THE CAR CLEAN IN THE MEANTIME?
A careful and regular washing regime using a PH neutral shampoo and/or hydrophobic spray will keep your car looking pristine. We can supply these products directly or point you in the direction of online retailers. The cost to you is the same either way. Also avoid letting your vehicle air dry always use quality microfibre to dry.
ARE CERAMIC COATINGS A MIRACLE ‘FIRE AND FORGET’ PRODUCT?
Absolutely not, despite being very durable they still need maintaining. Beware of the hype that comes with many car treatment systems (ceramic and dealership applied treatments) that promise ‘no polishing’ and ‘lifetime protection with no maintenance as part of the deal.
We have worked on countless vehicles with various coating systems applied and have yet to find any that meet the often extravagant claims made by the industry. It is simply not possible to coat a car, then treat it to the occasional wash, and for it to remain glossy and contaminant free several years down the road.
HOW DO CERAMIC COATINGS COMPARE AGAINST DEALERSHIP APPLIED SEALANTS?
Avoid roller brush car washes and wiping your car clean when it’s dry. Always have a lubricant and clean microfibre or wash mitt.
I’VE HAD MY CAR TREATED, IS THERE ANYTHING TO AVOID?
They are much more durable in almost every aspect of protection and visually appear to have a much higher gloss characteristic.
