Top 10 questions we get asked

  1. What is a Ceramic Coating?

Basically, it is a liquid polymer that bonds to your paint and creates a semi permanent layer of protection. It will last a few years and it won’t wash away which means that you won’t have to reapply it every few months like you would with wax. It also protects against the UV rays and the elements such as bird droppings, tree sap, acid rain, and more. It adds gloss and sickness to the paint and also has self-cleaning properties which will make the vehicle a lot easier to wash.

2. How long does a Ceramic Coating last?

The longevity or durability depends on the brand and the application of the coating. Factors such as your climate, whether or not your vehicle is garage kept, how often you drive your vehicle, and how frequently you care for your vehicle will affect the longevity of the coating. There are hundreds of different coatings on the market. We use System X Ceramic Coatings which are the best in the industry. We offer a 3-year, 6 year, and a permanent coating. 

3. Does a Ceramic Coating protect against scratches or swirls?

The short answer is, no. Soft bristle brushes or automated car washes with big brushes that clean your car will damage your ceramic coating. What ceramic coating does protect your paint from is light marring. Whenever you wash your vehicle, overtime you are inducing light scratches or swirls. A ceramic coating will prevent those from happening. To conclude, a ceramic coating will not protect your vehicle from heavy scratches or heavy swirls. 

4. Do Ceramic Coatings protect against stone chips?

No. Even though ceramic coatings are 2x stronger than your clear coat they are not designed to prevent rock chips from damaging your paint. The only way to protect your vehicle from stone chips is by applying paint protection film. 

5. Can Ceramic Coatings be applied to other surfaces other than paint?

Yes. There are specific ceramic coatings for specific surfaces.  Typically a separate ceramic coating is applied for your trim, a separate one is applied for your glass, and a specific one is applied to the wheels. However some ceramic coatings are all in ones. Which means that they can be applied to paint, glass, trim, and wheels.  System X Coatings can be applied to all surfaces. 

6. Can Ceramic Coatings be applied on top of  paint protection film?

There are specific coatings that are made to be applied on top of paint protection film. However, the majority of ceramic coatings that can be applied to paint, can also be applied to paint protection film. System X Coatings can be applied to paint protection film to add an extra layer of protection and gloss. Ceramic Coatings can also be applied on top of vinyl wrap and they won’t cause any glossiness. The wrap will still retain its matte finish. A ceramic coating will add a layer of protection on top of it. 

7. Is a Ceramic Coating better than a wax?

That question primarily depends on who you ask. Personally for us, a ceramic coating is better. A traditional wax will give a nice warm glow to your paint. But most waxes last 1 to 3 months. Waxes don’t have much  chemical resistance compared to ceramic coatings and they wear off as you wash your vehicle more often. To add, if you live in very hot climates, the wax can reach a flashing point to where it just evaporates off your vehicle. That is also something to be aware of. Ceramic Coatings can withstand extremely hot weather as well as extremely cold weather. Ceramic Coatings are also great against chemicals, so for example road salt and acid rain will not harm the ceramic coating. If compared to a traditional wax, a ceramic coating provides more glossiness and slickness than any other wax on the market. 

8. When is the best time to apply ceramic coating?

As quickly as possible! As soon as you purchase a new vehicle you should apply ceramic coating. Here at Upstate Mobile Car Detailing, we specialize in ceramic coating installation. We would be glad to protect your vehicle and get it started on the right foot.

9. Can a Ceramic Coating hide scratches?

No. A true ceramic coating doesn’t have any fillers or masking agents that will cover up your scratches. It is solely a protection product. A ceramic coating will actually amplify any scratches or swirls that you had prior to applying the ceramic coating. That’s why the paint correction stage is very important. Because once the ceramic coating is applied, those swirls and scratches are going to be locked in for the next couple of years. 

10. Can a ceramic coating be applied to any vehicle color?

Yes! It doesn’t matter what color your vehicle is, the ceramic coating will enhance the look of your car.
