Benefits of a 5 Year Ceramic Coating

A 5-year ceramic coating is a resilient liquid polymer that bonds chemically with the vehicle's factory paint, forming a durable layer of protection. This advanced coating technology provides numerous benefits:

Exceptional Durability:

Offers up to 5 years of robust protection against UV rays, oxidation, environmental contaminants, and minor scratches.
Enhanced Aesthetics:

Creates a deep, glossy finish that enhances your vehicle's appearance and maintains its showroom shine.
Hydrophobic Properties:

Repels water, dirt, and grime, making it easier to clean and maintain your car's exterior.

Our 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.
