Having a couple trained  detailers, we surpass the quality of work of your typical San Francisco car wash location near you by offering ceramic coatings. What is that? a hard shell 9H thick and looks like thin glass. What does it do? A ceramic coating will prevent water stains, road grime, bird droppings, and other substances from reaching and harming the paint. With a quick rinse, they'll simply slide right off. And that brings us to an interesting word: hydrophobic.

What is  a 3 Year Ceramic Coating

A 3-year ceramic coating is a durable, liquid polymer applied to the exterior of your vehicle. It forms a strong bond with the paint, creating a protective layer that enhances the car's gloss and shields it from various environmental contaminants. Here are the key benefits:

Enhanced Protection:

Guards against UV rays, oxidation, bird droppings, tree sap, and other harmful elements that can damage your vehicle's paint.
Long-lasting Shine:

Maintains a glossy, hydrophobic finish that repels water, dirt, and grime, making your car easier to clean.

Provides up to 3 years of reliable protection with proper maintenance, reducing the need for frequent detailing.

3 Year Ceramic Coating Application Process

1. Vehicle Preparation

  • Washing: The vehicle is thoroughly washed to remove dirt, grime, and contaminants that could interfere with the bonding of the ceramic coating.

  • Decontamination: Clay bar treatment or chemical decontamination is used to remove embedded contaminants from the paint surface.

  • Drying: The vehicle is dried completely using microfiber towels or forced air to prevent water spots.

2. Paint Correction 

  • Paint Inspection: The paint surface is inspected for imperfections such as swirl marks, scratches, or oxidation.

  • Paint Correction: If needed, a paint correction process may be performed to polish and restore the paint to a smooth finish before applying the ceramic coating.

3. Surface Prep

  • Surface Cleaning: Any remaining residues or oils are removed using a dedicated panel wipe or isopropyl alcohol to ensure a clean surface.

4. Application of Ceramic Coating

  • Application Method: The ceramic coating is applied using soft, lint-free applicator pads or microfiber towels.

  • Even Coverage: The coating is applied evenly in small sections, ensuring complete coverage without missing any spots.

5. Curing

  • Initial Cure: After application, the ceramic coating is left to cure on the vehicle for a specific period, usually around 1-5 minutes

  • Final Cure: The vehicle is  left to cure in a controlled environment 1 hour to allow the coating to fully bond with the paint recommended by our ceramic coating manufacture DYI Detail.

6. Final Inspection

  • Quality Check: Once cured, the vehicle is inspected to ensure the ceramic coating has bonded correctly and evenly across the entire surface.

  • Touch-Up: Any areas that may require additional coating or correction are addressed at this stage.

7. Post-Application Care

  • Maintenance Instructions: The customer is provided with instructions on how to care for the ceramic coating, including recommended wash techniques and maintenance products.

  • Follow-Up: Follow-up appointments or inspections may be scheduled to monitor the coating's performance and address any concerns.
