Ceramic coatings - Conditions & limitations
What can and can’t Ceramic Coating protect against?
There are common misconception about what exactly ceramic coating can and cannot protect your vehicle against.
Lets start off with some common misconceptions:
Ceramic Coating will not make your car bullet proof – if this is something you require we recommend contacting Q Branch
It will not protect your vehicle against scratches and dents caused by collisions.
Rock chips are unfortunately inevitable and there isn’t a ceramic coating available that will protect your paintwork, when it happens.
Once coated, we don't recommend the use of 'commercial' car washes, (i.e. Supermarket automated car washes)Nor do we recommend washing your car yourself, with regular 'over the counter' car washing products. (shampoos, wax finishes, polishing clothes, etc)
All of these can harm the professional finish, and re introduce swirls and scratches to the professional finish of a ceramic coating.
However once fully cured (We recommend a full 7 days, before washing) Ceramic Coating will protect against:
Light scratches and swirl marks
Sunlight and UV rays
Ice and snow
Premium Ceramic Coating, is not a replacement for a regular professional maintenance washing routine, by ourselves, or other 'professional' valeting / detailing services.
It’s self-cleaning properties will help to keep your car cleaner for longer, and make washing easier by professional services.
