First, we must review what a ceramic coating does. A ceramic coating protects the different surfaces of your vehicle by creating in simple terms another clear coat. When the contents of the ceramic coating harden/cure they turn into a crystal-like material. This happens on the surface of the vehicle as well but since it's a super thin layer our eyes can only see the enhanced gloss this then creates. On top of the gloss, it provides it offers enhanced protection against the environmental elements we encounter every day. Protecting your clear coat from the acidic rain, salt, UV rays, snow, or whatever else. It also helps protect your clear coat from light scratches as it creates a barrier between it and the clear coat which protects your paint.

Ceramic coatings and sprays have been the latest craze to hit the automotive car industry as they offer the greatest protection and gloss enhancing capabilities. These coatings contain a few key ingredients and every brand of coating has their own formula, however, the main key ingredient in all of them is Sio2 or Silica Dioxide. This is also the main ingredient in glass and is often why ceramic coatings are referred to as "glass coatings". However, just because it's a stronger protection element for your vehicle it is important to note that caring for it properly enhances the durability and life of the coating.
