In the fast-paced world of automotive care, enthusiasts and casual drivers alike are always on the lookout for the next innovation to keep their vehicles in the best possible condition. One potential product you’ll inevitably come across in doing your research on automotive protection is Ceramic Coating. But what exactly is ceramic coating, and what does it do for your vehicle?

What Is Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic coating is a liquid polymer applied to the exterior surfaces of a vehicle. This cutting-edge product chemically bonds with the factory paint, creating a protective layer that goes far beyond what traditional wax or sealants can achieve. The result is a shield that offers a multitude of benefits, making it a must-have for anyone seeking long-lasting protection and a dazzling aesthetic.

Hydrophobic Properties

One of the most notable features of ceramic coating is its hydrophobic qualities. Imagine water effortlessly rolling off your car’s surface, leaving no streaks or water spots behind. These hydrophobic qualities apply to dirt, mud, and general grim from the road.

Effortless Maintenance

Ceramic coating does not guarantee that your car is going to be clean all the time; however, ceramic coating does make it far more challenging to get your car dirty. Thanks to its ultra-smooth surface, dirt, bird droppings, and bugs struggle to bond with the paint. A simple rinse or a gentle wipe is often all it takes to restore your vehicle’s pristine appearance, saving you lots of time.

3X Harder than Clear Coat

Ceramic coatings bring an impressive level of durability to the table. The coating is up to three times harder than traditional clear coat, providing an exceptional defense against minor scratches, swirl marks, and other paint imperfections that can occur during regular use.

Elemental Protection

Nature can be harsh on your car’s finish – UV rays, harsh weather, and environmental contaminants can wreak havoc over time. Every car guy knows how absolutely awful the elements are for your car. Ceramic coatings act as a barrier against these elements, shielding your vehicle from the damaging effects of the sun, rain, and pollutants. This not only preserves the aesthetic appeal but also helps maintain the resale value of your prized possession.

Resistance to Stains and Chemical Etching

Ceramic coatings create a protective barrier against stains and chemical etching caused by bird droppings, tree sap, bug splatter, and harsh chemicals. The chemical resistance ensures that these contaminants won’t penetrate the coating, preventing long-term damage to your vehicle’s paint.

  • I am ecstatic with the service provided. My car was covered with dog fur and mud/dirt from all of the outdoor activities my dog and I have been doing throughout the fall and winter and Mark worked diligently for hours to make sure my car looked like new. I would definitely recommend to anybody looking for reliable and professional service.

  • I can’t begin to say how thrilled I am with the outstanding job James P. did on my vehicle. I am so sorry I didn’t take before pictures! I never expected it to turn out like it did! It is spotless and so shiny. There is not one bit of dirt, dust, crud etc on the inside or outside. It really does look like a brand new vehicle (maybe even better). Its so clean that I don’t want to even drive it until the sun is shining! Great job James P. I will definitely request you next time. It was very nice meeting you!

  • The folks at Nathan's ceramic coated my brand new Tesla inside and out and did a fantastic job. They just did it today so we'll see how it holds up but the job they did is perfect. The car looks far better than it did the day I picked it up at the dealership. Plus the team at Nathan's is top notch and incredibly nice to work with.
