What is ceramic coating?

True ceramic coating is a revolutionary long-term nanoscopic exterior automotive paint treatment and protectant that transcends conventional waxing or sealants. Unlike readily available consumer-grade products found in stores, a genuine ceramic coating requires professional application, expertise, and specific preparation to achieve optimal results. This high-grade solution is not only a shield but a transformative layer that bonds with the vehicle's paint, enhancing its appearance and durability. Delving into the process, a professional-grade ceramic coating necessitates meticulous preparation, including paint polishing to eliminate imperfections and enhance surface smoothness. This crucial step ensures that the coating adheres seamlessly, maximizing its effectiveness and longevity. From there, the application itself demands precision, as each coat is carefully hand-applied to create a uniform, protective layer. Time is an essential component of the ceramic coating process, as rushing can compromise the quality and durability of the application. On average, a comprehensive ceramic coating installation requires a minimum of six hours to ensure thorough coverage and curing. This meticulous approach guarantees that the coating forms a resilient barrier, capable of withstanding the rigors of daily driving and environmental exposure. But what sets ceramic coating apart from traditional methods is its unparalleled performance and benefits. Once applied, ceramic coating acts as a formidable shield, safeguarding the car's paint from an array of external threats. From scratches and swirl marks to environmental contaminants and UV radiation, ceramic coating provides comprehensive protection, preserving the vehicle's pristine appearance for years to come. One of the hallmark features of ceramic coating is its hydrophobic properties, which create a water-repellent surface that repels moisture and contaminants. This hydrophobic effect results in intense water beading and dirt run-off, ensuring that the car stays cleaner for longer periods between washes. Additionally, ceramic coating facilitates easier cleaning, as dirt and grime have difficulty adhering to the slick, smooth surface. Furthermore, ceramic coating imparts a lustrous, mirror-like shine that enhances the car's aesthetic appeal. The coating's high-gloss finish accentuates the depth and clarity of the paint, giving the vehicle a showroom-worthy appearance. Whether under the sun's rays or the glow of artificial lighting, ceramic-coated cars exude an unmistakable brilliance that commands attention and admiration. Behind ceramic coating's remarkable performance lies its composition, primarily consisting of silicon dioxide (silica, SiO2) sourced from natural materials such as quartz and sand. This key ingredient forms the foundation of the coating, providing exceptional hardness and durability. Some formulations may also incorporate titanium dioxide (titania, TiO2) as an additional hardening agent, further enhancing the coating's resilience and longevity. In summary, ceramic coating represents a paradigm shift in automotive protection and enhancement. Its advanced formulation and application process yield unparalleled results, transforming ordinary cars into extraordinary works of art. With its ability to repel water, resist contaminants, and amplify shine, ceramic coating offers unmatched durability and aesthetics, making it the ultimate choice for discerning car enthusiasts.

Why get a ceramic coating?

You desire your vehicle to maintain its showroom shine, but despite regular washing and waxing, pesky swirl marks, chips, and stains seem to multiply on its exterior. Even after a thorough wash, water spots, dirt, and grime quickly reappear, leaving your car looking less than pristine the very next day. But what if there existed a game-changing solution? A product capable of providing long-lasting protection against environmental hazards like water spotting, oxidation, and etching, while also simplifying the washing process without the need for frequent reapplication? Well, the good news is, such a product does exist. It's known as Ceramic Coating, sometimes referred to as Nano-Ceramic Coating or Ceramic Clear Coat, and it has the potential to significantly enhance the value of your vehicle. Ceramic coating forms a robust chemical bond with your vehicle's clear coat, delivering years of unparalleled protection. Say goodbye to worries about oxidation, bug splatter staining, UV damage, bird dropping stains, fading, and chemical etching. And let's not forget its remarkable hydrophobic properties, which repel water and keep your car cleaner for longer periods. At J9's Luxury Auto Detailing, we specialize in harnessing the power of ceramic coating to safeguard and beautify vehicles. Our team of experts is well-versed in the intricacies of clear coat protection, and we're committed to providing superior service and results. Give us a call today to learn more about how ceramic coating can revolutionize your vehicle's appearance and protection. Don't forget to inquire about our competitive prices!

What is a paint correction and why do I need it?

We include at a minimum a polish to every ceramic coating we apply. If the paint needs more intensive correction, we move into a 2-step process to help reduce and sometimes eliminate swirls, light scuffs and scratches. (If we think it would benefit you to do more we will show you before simply charging you for additional services.) This process is necessary because the better the clear coat condition before application, the deeper the shine and overall aesthetic of your vehicle! Paint correction can be a misleading term. It's a fancy way of saying clear coat enhancement. This process does nothing to the paint at all. If a scratch can be felt with a fingernail, it's beyond the clear coat and therefore cannot be corrected with a paint correction.

What is the installation process?

A professional installation takes a long time to do it right. At J9's Luxury Auto detailing, we first use a strip soap to remove any waxes from the paint, followed up with a clay decontamination process, the iron deposits are then removed, and lastly, we wipe the paint completely bare with an IPA. This is just the initial wash! Once the vehicle's paint is bare, we tape off any plastic and rubbers before we move into the polishing or paint correction stage. Here we remove defects in the clear coat such as minor scratches, swirls, and scuffs. After that, we apply the ceramic coating. The cure time is at a minimum 18 hours. The longer you keep your vehicle safe in a garage the stronger the protection.

My car is brand new, does it really need to be polished or corrected first?

Absolutely! We've seen cars come to us 3 days after purchase that needed serious correction. We never know how the dealership has your vehicles washed and dried while it's in their possession and if you're curious, take a flashlight to your paint. You will see more than you expect! Therefore it is imperative for us to try and get it out before adding a layer of protection that will not come out with simple car washing.

Warranty and maintenance after install expectations?

Warranty information will be provided based on the level of protection purchased. Manufacture warrranties and registration are part of your installation process. The maintence on a vehicle with ceramic coatings is minimal! Which is part of the glory of having one. We ask that our customers pay for one maintence boost a year to maintain warranty and that's it! Our Boost wash is only $50 and you can come as often as you want, but once a year to maintain warranty. For you to take care of it at home just hand wash and dry or go to a TOUCHLESS car wash. You won't need to use wax for the duration of your coating so you can just opt for the rinse and dry!
