The Secret to Optimal Shine - Ceramic Coating

For those who want the best possible shine, ceramic coating is essential. But beware, if not done correctly you end up with cloudy reflections, high spots and streaks. Read on to learn why we chose Ceramic Pro, the global leader in nanoceramic surface protection.

As a consumer you want the best at a reasonable price. Your options are; pay less by doing it yourself or pay more by leaving it up to the professionals. Either way, do your research. In choosing the DYI option, a quick search points you to a variety of recommended "top" products, but like anything else, everyone has their own opinion and brands they favor. One may swear by Adam's, another by Chemical Guys, and yet another by Meguiar's. So what do you do? Use the one that gets the desired results you are looking for.


How to Choose the Right Ceramic Coating

  1. Price: expect the result to be what you paid. Not saying you have to go with the most expensive, but knowing what your paying for is crucial.

  2. Reviews: filter to the most recent reviews. What are customers saying? Pay attention to the gripes, but don't always take them at face value. Many negative reviews speaks louder than one or two.

  3. Don't be fooled: don't be fooled by misleading marketing claims; "hard as a diamond" or "scratch proof".

  4. Benefits: hardness level is key, but how about all the other important factors such as gloss, retention, durability, UV resistance, drying times, chemical resistance, and oxidation?


Why We Chose Ceramic Pro


After a lot of research we decided to go with Ceramic Pro Coatings for several reasons.

  1. Number of years on the market & proven results.

  2. Largest coating company in the world.

  3. Coatings specifically made for various surfaces: paint, carbon fiber, paint protection film, wheels, chrome, alloy, plastics, rubber, glass, leather and more.

  4. Engineered for strength and lifespan - it does not go on as easily, but the results are worth it.

  5. Claims of 9H - no where does Ceramic Pro claim to be scratch proof. Understand "scratch resistant" is not the same. It offers additional layers to help protect your car's paint. With Ceramic Pro Coating Lifetime we apply four layers of Pro 9H. You read that right, four layers, plus a top coat.

  6. Options - this is my favorite. You don't have to settle for one year, two year, or even five. Why not choose a lifetime! But be smart about it. If you plan to keep your car and want it to last, lifetime is for you. If you plan on selling it in a couple years, than we offer that too.

  7. Gloss - holy hell the gloss pops! You will be amazed at the shine.

  8. Hydrophobic Effect - sure other brands claim they are hydrophobic and maybe they are, but do they guarantee its effect for a lifetime?

There you have it. A lot of information and a big decision to make when it comes to your vehicle. Keep in mind, if you choose the DIY option, expect to apply it more often but not as much as a wax requires. If you choose the professional route, know what is being put on your vehicle, how long it will last, and whether it is backed by a warranty.
