Ceramic Coatings San Antonio
When it comes to paint protection for your car, truck, SUV, luxury vehicle or exotic car, a ceramic coating offers a great way to protect vehicle paint as well as enhance the overall vehicle aesthetics. While all ceramic coatings may have the same goal in mind, paint protection & added shine, they are not all created equal. High-end ceramic coatings from reputable manufacturers such as NXTZEN and XPEL take paint protection to the next level. Intense gloss and shine, hydrophobic properties, and “self-healing” capabilities protect your factory clear coat providing a protective shield against the elements.
What Is A Ceramic Coating?
A ceramic coating is designed utilizing nano-ceramic technology creating a liquid polymer that is applied to your vehicle by an experienced ceramic coating installation expert. Once cured a ceramic coating acts as a protective glass-like shield. Hydrophobic properties ensure that water spots, bug spatter and insect acids slide right off. And intense gloss and shine ensure that your vehicle is always left looking like you just drove it off the showroom floor. Ceramic coatings also allow for ease of vehicle maintenance, making keeping your vehicle looking its best simple and easy.

Can you combine a ceramic coating with paint protection film?
Yes! While a ceramic coating and paint protection film both provide paint protection for your vehicle they are also designed differently and therefore bring different capabilities. Ceramic coatings have hydrophobic properties meaning water, bug spatter, dirt and grime to repel right off. PPF on the other hand has self healing properties that allow for scratches, rock chips and nicks to virtually disappear when heat activated. Ceramic coatings also add an intense gloss and shine to your vehicle, while paint protection film is available in both high gloss and matte film options. By combining a ceramic coating with paint protection film you are getting the ultimate paint protection package for your vehicle.
How long does a ceramic coating last?
How long a ceramic coating lasts depends on a few factors. The quality of the coating used, ceramic coating package chosen and the quality of installation. Generally high quality coatings installed by a certified professional are meant to last between 3-5 years when taken care of properly.
Is a ceramic coating worth it?
A ceramic car coating is definitely worth it when a high quality coating is installed by a certified ceramic coating professional. Not only does a ceramic coating provide superior paint protection it also makes vehicle maintenance that much easier. Designed utilizing nano-ceramic technology, a ceramic coating’s hydrophobic properties repel dirt, water and grime keeping your vehicle looking like it was just detailed by a professional.
How do you maintain a ceramic coating?
It is extremely important that you follow the maintenance instructions provided by the professional after a ceramic coating is installed. A vehicle that has a ceramic coating should never be taken through an automated car wash and should always be washed by hand with a ph neutral shampoo that has no added wax. Also never wash in direct sunlight and always make sure you are using the appropriate sponges and towels to wash and dry the vehicle.
