HOW ARE CERAMIC COATINGS INSTALLED?

The Coating Process

Installing a ceramic coating is an extremely tedious process. Below is a breakdown of how ceramic coatings are installed.

Step 1 - Clean & Decontaminate

Let’s get it clean! Every exterior coating package includes our triple decontamination wash to remove everything stuck to the surface of your paint. We use a variety of specialty chemicals and mechanical techniques to get your paint smooth and clean.

Step 2 - Paint Correction aka Swirl Removal

We need to fix your paint next! All of our coating packages will include a minimum enhancement polish, but true paint correction may be needed to get that mirror reflection before we coat.

Step 3 - Ceramic Coating Installation

Most of our coating packages take a minimum of 1-2 full days, preparing a vehicle for ceramic is more important than the application process itself. We need a squeaky clean surface for the coating to bond properly.
