Table of Contents

Ever thought about adding a ceramic coating to your car? Interested in learning more about ceramic car painting? At Apex Auto Performance, we’ve applied ceramic coatings to lots of different vehicles and wanted to outline some of the advantages and disadvantages of applying it.

What Exactly Is Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic coating is a chemical polymer solution that is coated onto the exterior of a vehicle. It’s usually applied by hand and will be blended into the paint in order to create a layer of protection. The ceramic coating can be permanent or temporarily applied, whatever your needs are.

Benefits of Ceramic Coating

There are many positives associated with applying a ceramic coating to your vehicle. The sun is constantly shining its harmful UV rays onto your vehicle’s paint job, something that can deteriorate it. Ceramic coating protects your car’s paint from oxidizing and will prevent it from fading or becoming dull.

Another big positive about ceramic coating is that it will protect your paint against any acidic contaminants that can harm it. Air pollution has only been increasing in recent years and will probably continue to rise. Getting a ceramic coating put on your car can protect it against this rise in air acidity.

Ceramic Coating Downsides

Though it has a great many benefits, ceramic coating can’t protect your vehicle against everything. The biggest downside is the fact that ceramic coating won’t protect your vehicle against scratches. We recommend you apply a paint protection film in addition to a ceramic coating to ward off unnecessary scratching.
