What is Ceramic Coating?

Located in Waterloo Region, love your vehicle, and wanting to do everything you can to preserve it? Bustard's Auto Detailing is now offering ceramic coating - the best way to preserve your vehicle's exterior and keep it looking like it just rolled off the factory line for the long term!

Ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that is applied to the exterior of your vehicle. The coating chemically bonds with your vehicle’s paint, providing a strong, hydrophobic barrier of protection. Ceramic coating, also called nano-ceramic coating, is not broken down by atmospheric conditions like rain, heat, snow, or cold. The protective coating prevents dirt, grime, and stain marks from appearing on the paint job and ruining your vehicle’s clear coat.

Why Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic coating offers a number of benefits, as listed below:  
UV Protection – UV rays can significantly damage your car’s paint job. Ceramic coating protects your paint from oxidation, fading, and dullness – very important, particularly if you park your car outside!  
Protection from Chemical Stains – ceramic coating offers an additional layer to protect against acidic contaminants in the air that can bond to your vehicle’s paint and damage the surface.  
Heat Resistance – ceramic coating can resist extremely high temperatures, protecting your vehicle’s clear coat and paint job.  
Water Beading & Self-Cleaning – the hydrophobic nature of ceramic coating means that water-based dirt and grime will bead on the surface of your vehicle and eventually slide off.  
Gloss & Shine – ceramic coating adds depth to your vehicle’s paint, providing a glossy look and bringing out the best of the original paint job.  
Up to 5 Years Protection – ceramic coating maintains your vehicle’s clear coat and exterior for the long term!

Ceramic Coating Application

There are a number of DIY ceramic coating kits available online, however this is one job you definitely don’t want to do yourself (unless of course you have experience!).

Despite being applied as a clear liquid, ceramic coating when applied incorrectly can create swirls, scratches, or an uneven surface due to improper application. Ceramic coating adheres to and bonds with a car’s paint and cannot just be wiped off and reapplied - sanding and polishing is required before re-application.

Instead of doing it yourself, trust Bustard’s Auto Detailing with applying ceramic coating to your vehicle!

If your vehicle’s exterior is in less than optimal condition, proper preparation will be required. Scratches, swirls, and discoloration are removed using a high speed polisher prior to the ceramic coating being applied to ensure the best possible finish on your vehicle.
