Ceramic Coatings are gaining their popularity among car enthusiasts. A solution that keeps your vehicle smooth and clean is saving car owners lots of time when it comes to car washing and maintenance. One of the global leaders in Nanoceramic Surface Protection Technology is Ceramic Pro. It has become widely popular and took a detailing world by a storm. But what exactly is Ceramic Pro, and what makes it so special? In this blog post we attempt to answer this question.

What is Ceramic Pro

It is a multi-layerable, clear, liquid nano-ceramic coating. When cured, it transforms into a permanent, durable glass shield. It is a clear coat reinforcer, with 3 times the hardness and self-cleaning properties. It enhances the colour of your car, makes it very shiny, and helps keep your vehicle clean by repelling dirt and grease.ceramic pro

Why Ceramic Pro?

Ceramic Pro has numerous benefits, including the following:

  • Creating a barrier against water damage
  • Protecting your car from negative environmental conditions
  • Preventing corrosion and oxidation
  • Protecting the surface against negative effects of UV rays
  • Adding permanent gloss and shine
  • Significantly easing maintenance
  • Preventing dirt, grease and dust from sticking to your vehicle
  • Making the surface extremely hydrophobic

Ceramic Pro System

Ceramic Pro is applied in multiple layers, with 8-10 hours of curing time in between. It is important to make sure the previous layer is fully cured prior to applying the next one. A complete application usually consists of the following products:ceramic pro system

Nano Primer:

Firstly, application begins with Nano Primer. It serves as a base prior to applying coating. It prepares the surface for coating, and increases coating bonding strength.

Key Features:

  • Non-abbrasive
  • Sillicon-free
  • Water-based
  • Wax-Free

Ceramic Pro 9H:

Secondly, 9H application begins once the primer cures. It is a highly durable protective coating that protects the surface from damaging contaminants. It contains silica dioxide and titanium dioxide and the secret sauce – the solvents. When exposed to air, this solution will dry to about 65% hard glass. When cured, it forms a permanent bond with the surface, which can only be removed by abrasion. Ceramic Pro 9H can be applied in layers, which means the thickness of the coating can be increased by adding additional layers of the product. The name 9H refers to the measurement of hardness which is achieved after the product is applied. In comparison, regular hardness of automotive pant is 3H. In addition, Ceramic Pro 9H is very flexible, which means it will not shutter.

Key Features:

  • Scratch Resistance (Above 9H)
  • Super Hydrophobic Effect
  • Weather & UV Resistance
  • Thermal Resistance (up to 1200°C)
  • Anti-Graffiti
  • Advanced Chemical Resistance
  • Oxidation & Corrosion Resistant
  • High Gloss Finish

Top Coat:

Finally, Top coat (a finishing layer) is applied after 9H layering is done. It allows surface to stay cleaner, since dirt and dust do not easily stick to it. Due to its super hydrophobic effect, water simply beads up on the surface, and rolls off. Top Coat also enhances gloss depth on all painted surfaces to achieve the wet look.

Key Features:

  • Super Hydrophobic Effect
  • Weather & UV Resistance
  • High Gloss Finish
  • Anti-Graffiti
  • Advanced Chemical Resistance
  • Oxidation & Corrosion Resistance

Vinyl Wrap and PPF Application

Ceramic Pro application is not limited to paint surfaces only. It can also be applied to a Vinyl Wrap or Paint Protection Film. Ceramic Pro has created a line of products designed specifically for polyurethane and vinyl films. Ceramic Pro PPF & Vinyl protects the film from contamination and weathering, resulting in a film thats much easier to clean! Key features of the product include:

  • Super Hydrophobic Effect
  • Weather and UV resistance
  • Anti-Graffiti
  • Reduced Orange Peel
  • Ease of MaintenanceTesla model s vinyl wrap

Ceramic Pro Technology Explained

So how does this product actually work? Well, the surface of your paint or vinyl wrap is porous. Those pores are not visible to the naked eye, due to their microscopic size. Ceramic Pro particles form a covalent bond and fill in those pores using very small particles of silica dioxide and titanium dioxide, creating a permanent protective filler. This is your protection against UV light, heat, and other negative environmental conditions. This layer is permanent, because it fills in the pores. The only way to remove it is by abrasion.

Other Automotive Applications

Vehicle exterior is not the only area suitable for the treatment. Ceramic Pro makes multiple products for different types of applications that allow you to protect the whole vehicle.

CP Sport:

This product is usually used on previously treated surfaces in order to freshen up their Hydrophobic Top Coat. It can also be applied on its own for a short 6 months long result.

CP Rain:ceramic pro rain

Used to treat glass areas, this product significantly improves visibility when driving in the rain due to its hydrophobic qualities. It also helps keep your windshield clean for much longer.

CP Leather:Bentley interior seat

Toxicity Testsceramic pro testing

Ceramic Pro products have undergone SGS testings. SGS is the world’s leading independent testing body. All of the products within the line have been tested and certified as non-toxic  while achieving the highest possible results in all tests.

When tested for Heavy Metal Lead, Antimony, Arsenic, Barium, Cadmium, Chromium, Mercury, Selenium, – none were detected in all tested substances. Ceramic Pro has been tested against 144 substances of very high concern (SVHC) screening. As a result, none were detected in all tested substances.

Ceramic Pro Myths

As with any product on the market, there are different myths and misconceptions surrounding Ceramic Pro coating. In this section we are aiming to dispel some of the most common ceramic Pro myths.

It fills in scratches

Unfortunately not. Ceramic Pro is not a solution to fix scratches. It does not fill them in, or make them disappear. The only effective way to remove the majority of scratches is Paint Correction. No other coatings or solutions will be as effective.

It protects paint from damage

Many believe that ceramic Coatings can protect the paint from scratches, however, this is not exactly true. While adding some degree of protection, Ceramic Pro is by no means comparable to Paint Protection Film. While Paint Protection film is your shield against exterior damage. Ceramic Pro, on the other hand, will only be able to withstand a very small amount of impact. We never recommend it to clients as a solution to protect their car from rock chips and scuffs.

It replaces maintenance

While Ceramic Pro does make your car hydrophobic, shiny, and keeps it clean for longer, regular maintenance is still a necessity. You still need to wash your car regularly with proper solutions. What Ceramic Pro does is makes this process very easy and quick, but it does not replace it.

Ceramic Pro: All You Need to Know

ceramic pro

What is Ceramic Pro?

It is a clear liquid nano-ceramic coating that creates an extra protective layer once applied to the surface of your vehicle. It protects the surface of the car, extends its longevity, and significantly eases maintenance.

What is Ceramic Pro Used For?

It is used to improve and protect the exterior of your vehicle in multiple ways:

1. Extreme gloss:

CP deepens the colour and flattens the clear coat, which results in enhanced shine of the car.

2. Protection:

CP protects the surface of the car from elements of the environment that can damage the paint, such as acid, iron, bird dropping, and UV light.

3. Scratch Resistance:

CP hardens the clear coat of the car which results in higher resistance against light scratches.

4. Water Stains:

CP prevents formation of water stains, keeping the exterior of your car looking brand new.

5. Hydrophobicity:

Due to its hydrophobic effect, Ceramic Pro significantly reduces the amount of time needed to wash your vehicle. Because of lower surface energy, dirt, dust and tar don’t stick to the surface, keeping your car clean for longer.

How Long Does It Take to Apply?

Application of CP is a multistage process with curing time required in between stages. Depending on the package you choose, installation will take from 6 to 18 hours (1 to 3 business days).

How Long Does Ceramic Pro Last?

Depending on the package you choose, CP coating will stay on your car from 6 month to 5+ years.

What Does Ceramic Pro Cost?

We offer different packages to meet different budgets. Price of CP ranges from $350 to $2500, depending on size of vehicle and selected package. Please note that paint correction is an additional cost, it may be required/recommended prior to CP installation

Is It Safe for Paint?

Ceramic Pro is completely safe for paint. Moreover, it is beneficial to have CP on your paint, because it helps keep its original condition.

Can It Be Applied on Vinyl or Paint Protection Film?

There is a line of Ceramic Pro products designed specifically for Vinyl Wrap and Paint Protection Film applications. However, this product cannot be applied to Matte Vinyl Wrap and Matte PPF, because Matte effect will be altered by CP high gloss properties.

What Else Can Be Treated?

CP can be applied on almost anything. In fact, all exterior packages include application on wheels, exhaust tips and windows. Entire interior of the car can also be treated with CP to protect it from spills and dye transfer.

What is Ceramic Pro Rain?

It is a product that was specifically designed to treat glass surfaces. It provides very high hydrophobic effect that improves visibility while driving in rain. CP Rain also makes it easier to remove ice from windows, and keeps your windshield significantly cleaner.

Does Ceramic Pro Protect the Car from Scratches?

While CP makes surface of the car scratch resistant, it doesn’t make it scratch proof. If you are looking for a solution to protect your car from rock chips and deep scratches, consider using Paint Protection Film, which specifically designed for that.

Does Ceramic Pro Help Heal Scratches?

CP does not fix existing scratches, swirls or dents on the car. Surface of the car may need to be polished (paint correction process) to ensure best results.

Where to Buy?

CP is only sold to certified installers and shops through CeramicPro distribution channel. It’s unavailable to general public or in retail stores.

Can I Apply Ceramic Pro Myself?

Absolutely not. It is a professional product that is sold only to specialists that are trained to work with it. If you somehow get a hold of CP to install it yourself, chances of bad installation are extremely high. We strongly recommend to not instal Ceramic Pro yourself, since chances of mishandling it are quite high.

Who Can Install Ceramic Pro?

Only installers certified by Ceramic Pro can perform installation. We have completed such certification, and have worked on multiple projects. Contact us to get a FREE QUOTE for your Ceramic Pro needs.

How do I Maintain a Coated Vehicle?

There is no special maintenance required. Usual maintenance of the car still applies to CP treated car. You can safely use same soaps and procedures to wash your car… only it will be much easier to do!

How Does Ceramic Pro Compare to Wax?

CP provides a much longer lasting effects. It seals the clear coat much better than wax. It also provides a longer lasting self cleaning effect.

Do I need to Reapply CP and How Often

The shortest lasting CP package will stay on your car for 6 month. After 6 month expire, you can bring your car back for another application of the same package, or you can choose to upgrade for a longer lasting effect.

Can I Wrap a Coated Vehicle?

You cannot wrap over Ceramic Pro, since due to its low surface energy Vinyl Wrap simply won’t stick. You need to make sure the coating is removed before wrapping your car.
