How long does the ceramic coating process take?

If your vehicle is brand new, the process will most likely take 9 hour(s).

How long does ceramic coating last?

Our ceramic coating permanently bonds to the paint and seals it at a microscopic level. After curing, it forms an inorganic shell at the surface, refines the surface morphology and dramatically improves slickness.

The economic life of our coating depends very much on aftercare and maintenance. Ceramic coatings are generically hard coatings and resist swirling and scratching. Due to their inorganic nature, however, they do not self-heal like a Paint Protection Film (aka Clear Bra or PPF) or totally prevent scratching. When a ceramic coated paint swirls and scratches, some of its properties, chiefly hydrophobicity, will start to fade away. This phenomenon is analogous to a Teflon-coated pan's loss of nonstick properties when heavily scratched with a sharp object. Because of this reason, the hydrophobic properties of the coating, such as water beading and sheeting, depend very much on how you wash your car.

We do not recommend automated drive-thru car washes as they increase the risk of swirling and scratching and lead to premature loss of hydrophobicity. With proper care, you can get the most out of the ceramic coating for 10 years or even more. But if you neglect your car or frequently use the cheapest drive-thru car wash in Dallas Fort Worth, some of the properties, especially hydrophobicity, will be lost in 2-3 years. .

Economic life refers to the length of time a product is expected to be useful to the owner.

Is paint correction necessary before ceramic coating?

Paint Correction preps an automotive finish for ceramic coating. For a variery reasons, paint correction is not an optional step;

(1) Paint should be clay barred before ceramic coating installation. Clay barring is a light abrasive process that aims at removing surface-bonded contaminants off the paint, but can also lightly swirl the paint, depending on the type of the contaminant and paint hardness. For this reason, clay barring must always be proceeded with at least a one or a two-stage paint correction,

(2) Even if your car is brand new, there may be car wash swirls on the paint. Another reason we perform paint correction before a ceramic coating application is to remove these car wash swirls,

(3) Automotive painting is one of the areas where a manufacturer can dramatically reduce costs without getting a legal penalty or serious customer complaint. Some manufacturers – including but not limited to Tesla and General Motors – adopt "a reactive approach" and correct only a few (or maybe none) of the paint imperfections before the unit leaves the factory, whereas some manufacturers adopt "a proactive approach" and allocate much more resources to their painting and quality control operations. If your vehicle has visible paint imperfections, we correct them – free of charge if they are less than eight – before a ceramic coating application.

What are the steps?

The ceramic coating process includes the following steps:

Spotless Snow Foam Wash: Foam cannon wash using demineralized water.
Products Used: CARPRO Reset, or equivalent.

Paint Inspection: Inspection of (1) the paint thickness, (2) paint imperfections, such as fish-eyes or incidental scratches, and (3) surface-bonded contaminants and/or overspray.

Clay Barring and Iron Removal: Mechanical and chemical removal of surface-bonded contaminants. Clay barring is a light-abrasive method that removes surface-bonded contaminants, fallouts, and deposits. Iron removal is a chemical method that chemically dissolves and removes brake dust.
Products Used: CARPRO IronX, Bilt Hamber Korrosol, or equivalent.

Paint Correction: We perform 2-stage paint correction to (1) remove swirl marks, (2) level and refine the paint and (3) enhance gloss.
Products Used: CARPRO Ultracut, CARPRO Essence

Injection Steam Cleaning (Optional): If necessary, we use an injection steam cleaner to clean the intallation area and/or cracks and crevices.
Products Used: Optimum No Rinse, or equivalent.

Chemical Prepping: We use prepping agents to remove the oils, waxes, and sealants from the application surface.
Products Used: CARPRO Eraser, or equivalent.

Ceramic Coating Installation: Our highly-experienced technicians install the coating in two layers at our extremely well-lit and climate-controlled shop.
Products Used: CARPRO CQUARTZ Professional coating series.

Quality Control: We inspect our installation thoroughly to make sure there are no high spots or missed spots.

What are the main benefits of ceramic coating?

Ease of Maintenance: Sheets water, runs the dirt off. Makes car wash easier.

Enhances Resistance to Harsh Chemicals: Creates a barrier against chemicals and environmental fallouts that have the potential to etch the paint, including tree saps, bird droppings, bug splatter, and acid rain.

Semi-Permanently Seals the Paint: Chemically bonds to the paint and wears off only by mechanical means, such as wet sanding or heavy compounding.

Enhances Gloss: Fills the pores, smooths-out the paint surface, and enhances gloss.

Enhances Resistance to Oxidation: Creates an extra layer of protection against UV rays, enhances resistance to oxidation

Enhances Resistance to Swirling: Increases hardness of the paint and resistance to swirling and scratching.

Which ceramic coating products do we use and why?

We exclusively use CARPRO CQuartz™ line of ceramic coatings. Here is why:

CARPRO CQuartz™ Professional and Finest Reserve are the Porsche 911 of ceramic coatings, as they have extremely refined formulations and outperform any other coating on the market.

Compared to other professional ceramic coatings on the market, CARPRO CQuartz™ line of coatings has better gloss, hydrophobicity, durability, and water spotting resistance.

CARPRO does not rely on unrealistic warranties and overpromises to market its products and gain an unfair advantage on the market.

Awesome service! I got my Tesla Model 3 paint protection film on the front end and ceramic coating on the rest of the car. I’ve been driving it for a few week after service, and they even told me to come back to double-check on everything!

    Gunes is amazing! He provides a personalized service that exceeds expectations. I bought a brand new 2022 Acura MDX and came to CeramicFX to get ceramic coating applied on the entire exterior as well as paint protection film installed on the door edges. I’m very satisfied with the outcome. My Acura MDX looks way better than when delivered from the dealership and the quality of the products is top-notch. Before choosing CeramicFX, I shopped around the Dallas Fort Worth market for ceramic coating and found that CeramicFX offers the most value and the best products in the market. After delivery of the car, he went over the care and how to properly wash the car. He even showed me what not to do while washing the car. He also follows up with you to make sure that you are satisfied and if you have any questions about the coating. Overall, if I could give CeramicFX 10 stars, I would. I will be bringing the car back to do a full wrap in a few months.
