What is Ceramic Coatings and Clear Bra (PPF)?

What is Ceramic Coating?

For any car owner, keeping a car pristine and clean can usually be a challenge. The go-to solution has always been automotive wax to help protect the paint. But this requires periodic application (sometimes frequent re-applications) in order to maintain the wax coat, as it is slowly broken down and removed due to exposure of elements or performing a standard car wash.

Enters Ceramic Coating.

A Ceramic coating is a liquid polymer or Si02 silica that is hand applied to the vehicle's exterior. After application, the coating creates a semi permanent bond with the vehicle's paint, creating a layer of protection. The new aged ceramic coating does not break down like your traditional wax and does not require you to re-apply every so often like standard wax would.
