Ceramic Coatings

What are they?

Simply put, Ceramic coatings are a type of liquid polymer paint protection sealant. 

 Okay, so what is that?

 It is a product made up of molecules that bond together and stick to the cars paint creating a clear protective layer for your vehicle. It can be used to protect both the interior and exterior surfaces. Ceramic coatings are either a permanent or semi-permanent highly durable layer on top of your vehicles clear coat which can last up to 10 years (depending on the coating and maintenance of the vehicle). 

What are Ceramic Coatings made of?

The ingredients

The most common base of a ceramic coating is silica dioxide or SiO2 in short (80-85%). The remaining 15-20% consist of titanium dioxide (nano TiO2), activated fluorine, silicon brightening particles, polysilazane, triethanolamine, and water. This mixture is ideal for forming a crystal-clear shell which will protect the paintwork of your vehicle. The difference between the vast array of ceramic coatings out there is in manufacturer tweaks for water repellency, hardness, application ease and other factors.

What do Ceramic Coatings do?

Real world benefits

Ceramic coatings add additional shine and a durable strong layer of protection to your car’s exterior paintwork and interior surfaces specifically designed to resist the harsh Australian sun, harsh chemicals, provide insane water repellency, environmental fallout resistance and more with the added benefit of making your vehicle easier to clean and maintain.

Let’s break down these Ceramic Coating protective properties further:

UV Damage / Oxidization Protection

The sun’s ultraviolet rays have the power to oxidize the paint of your vehicle, which will result in your car looking dull or even faded.

Ceramic coatings are designed to protect the paintwork from those damaging influences due to its UV protection properties. Hence, your car’s paintwork is shielded from the Australian sun and stays in great shape!

Chemical Stains and Etching Protection

Your car may be chemically stained from naturally acidic contaminants, such as bird poo, tree sap and more. Ceramic coatings buy you time to remove those contaminants as the coating surface makes it much harder for those contaminants to penetrate or stick to your car’s paintwork. 

If these stains or etchings are not removed within a reasonable amount of time, they can also start to etch into your ceramic coating. In such a situation, the ceramic coating acts as a sacrificial layer that can be removed along with the etching and then the coating can be reapplied. This situation is much better than the bird poo or other contaminant etching your cars clear coat directly, which may, unfortunately, require a full respray to repair correctly.

Ease of Cleaning

Due to the ceramic coating benefit of being hydrophobic (water-repellent), water will simply bead off the surface and slide off, making it so much easier to wash and dry. Consequently, dirt and grime won’t be able to bond to the car’s paintwork which makes the maintenance of your vehicle less frequent as the car stays cleaner for longer.

Enhanced Gloss

One of the most known benefits is the gloss enhancement that ceramic coatings provide. With a good quality professional grade ceramic coating, your car will be rich in shine and depth of colour as well as having a reflective clear deep gloss.  

What Ceramic Coatings don't do

Myths and Legends

Although Ceramic Coatings come with so many benefits, there are still many misconceptions about them. It is important to know that these benefits don’t mean you have a bulletproof shield around your car so that you can abuse it or not maintain it at all, but it means your car is better protected. 

Let’s clear up some of those misconceptions:

Eliminate the Danger of Scratches, Swirl Marks, or Rock Chips

It is true, some scratches can be repelled by a ceramic coating, however, it won’t be able to protect your vehicle from the risk of rock chips or other deeper and more aggressive scratches. Also, it would need to be maintained properly as abrasive car washing techniques or automatic car wash machines will instil swirl marks and scratches on your vehicle’s surface.

Eliminate the Risk of Water Spotting

Water contains dirt and minerals which are left behind when water evaporates on your vehicle’s surface creating those visible water spots. Although water slides off easier with a ceramic coating, some beaded water spots will remain on the surface of the vehicle and if not removed within a reasonable amount of time, they will create water spot stains on the paintwork. These though can usually be removed with specific coating safe products.

Eliminate the Need to Wash

Yes, Ceramic coatings give your car a showroom finish look. Yes, it stays cleaner for longer. But it still needs to be washed and maintained. Even with a ceramic coating, you will still need to wash your car regularly to maintain its look. However, the maintenance will be a much easier and a much quicker process as you no longer need to wax or polish the paintwork. This means less work and better results. 

Are all Ceramic Coatings the same?

The Differences

The short answer is No. They are not all the same and differ in quality and its protective properties. In this case, the general rule of “you get what you pay for” can be your guide.

Professional Grade Ceramic Coatings

Cost: $900 – $4,000

A professional-grade ceramic coating product must be applied by a skilled and certified professional such as the staff at A Buff & Beyond which are accredited and certified installers for Gtechniq, Artdeshine, Titan and Drexler coatings. The application of a coating needs to happen in a controlled environment with the right tools. These coatings are ultra-high-end sealants which are difficult to apply and can cause damage to the car’s paintwork if applied incorrectly. But it’s these professional-grade coatings that are much more durable and exhibit unmatched quality and performance.

A Buff & Beyond only use authorised installer professional-grade ceramic coatings that require accreditation to use. We do not use cheap ceramic coatings that only last a few months or a year at best. All our coatings come with manufacturer warranties and have been tested in the real world. Manufacturers we use and recommend are the likes of Gtechniq and Artdeshine.

Additionally, it is good to know that the majority of cars need to undergo paint correction before the application of a ceramic coating as a major influence in the durability of the coating is based on the preparation of the vehicles paintwork. Ceramic coatings lock in the condition of your car’s paintwork and enhances the beauty underneath. Hence, you want to make sure that your paintwork is at its best before applying the coating. Although paint correction is a time consuming, skilful and costly task, it should not be skipped and should only be undertaken by a professional as the risk of damaging the original paintwork is significantly high (and the cost of a respray even higher).  

A paint correction involves removing defects in the paint by using different polishing methods. There are many small steps involved in getting the paint in its best shape but it’s worth the effort. Don’t be tempted to leave out this process as you might end up highlighting all the defects in your vehicles paintwork otherwise!

Professional Ceramic Coatings used by A Buff & Beyond

● Artdeshine Ceramic Metal Oxide

● Artdeshine Ayicon Ceramic Coating

● GTechniq Crystal Serum Light

● GTechniq Crystal Serum Ultra

Ceramic Coating Maintenance

Maximise performance and longevity

To maintain your coating is not as difficult as you might think. Only some basic ingredients are needed: A pH neutral car shampoo which does not contain any waxes or sealants, a mitt and two buckets.

You want to hand wash the vehicle regularly by using the two-bucket technique. You may also want to apply a high-quality SiO2 ceramic boost spray every now and then after your wash as it will extend the longevity of that ceramic coating and adds additional depth and gloss to the vehicles paintwork.

However, if you are pressed on time, then feel free to contact us and inquire about our maintenance service. At A Buff & Beyond we want your vehicle to stay in top shape, so we created a service that allows us to come to you to maintain the vehicle so that you don’t have to.

Are Ceramic Coatings worth it?

Conclusion

Yes, it definitely is worth it. Ceramic Coating will always add value and benefit to your car. Although it is not a miracle worker, it offers great protective properties as well as hydrophobic/water-repellent benefits. This additional glass-like layer adds deep gloss and shine while it prevents UV rays, dirt and grime, contaminants, extreme heat, and swirl marks from eating into your car’s paintwork. Additionally, it will be so much easier to clean and maintain your vehicle to its showroom finish. With a coating, your car’s paintwork will be protected for years to come.

It is strongly recommended to get the coating applied by an authorized installer who will be able to ensure that your vehicle has been coated correctly and your car has the protection it deserves.

Frequently Asked Questions

Regarding Ceramic Coatings

No. The varying levels of hardness associated with ceramic coating products are all registered on a numbered scale and it is good to understand what the numbers mean. The numbers indicate the amount of pressure the coating can withstand before a mark or line can be seen. 9H is the grade of pencil tip used to scratch a surface to measure abrasion resistance while hardness is measured using the MOHS Scale. Hence 9H won’t make your car bulletproof, however, it might help with preventing small scratches, scuffs, swirl marks, and road debris from cutting into, or embedding into the clear coat.

Unfortunately, nothing is permanent. Even the factory clear coat on your vehicle is subject to degradation and failure if not maintained and protected correctly. Ceramic coatings are semi-permanent and do break down eventually. 
However, professional-grade coatings are designed to last and protect your vehicles paintwork for 2-9 years and longer if maintained correctly.
However, if your vehicle is polished after the coating has been applied, this process may remove the coating entirely.

No. Applying a ceramic coating will provide your car with a much smoother appearance, however, it does not hide but enhances the paintwork that is underneath. Hence, you want to ensure that your paintwork has as few imperfections as possible before locking it in with a ceramic coating.

This depends on the ingredients of the ceramic coating and the way it has been applied. As a general rule, most professional-grade ceramic coatings last at least 2 years and up to 9 years or longer if maintained properly.

Ceramic Coatings can be removed from your paintwork if wanted or needed. Depending on the coating and how much of the coating is still intact, it can be removed with a compound, polish or in some extreme cases will require wet sanding to remove.

One or two layers of nano-ceramic coating are all that is needed. In fact, nano-ceramic coatings don’t layer well. In most cases, two layers are only applied to ensure that the coating is levelled and no areas have been missed.

This is not advisable as it will counteract the protection properties of ceramic coating. Although it might help to protect the coating itself, you no longer are getting the protection from a high quality ceramic coating and instead your vehicle will exhibit the properties of the wax on top of the coating.

No, unless it has been applied incorrectly. Protective ceramic coatings are designed to bond with the clear coat. Once the coating is cured it is there to last. If this process has gone wrong, it will be a real mess and a lot of effort to remove the coating and redo all the work. You may even need to wet sand the paint which will install unavoidably a lot of scratches in your clear coat and require a multi step paint correction process to repair.

No. Ceramic coatings are an additional layer and a form of paint protection. To get your scratches, swirl marks or other defects in your vehicles paintwork removed, your car would need to undergo paint correction service first. At A Buff and Beyond, all our Paint Protection packages include a paint inspection and correction service. To find out more about this, please click here.

Ceramic coatings have been designed to add shine and gloss to the vehicles paintwork. However, there are new coatings on the market that are designed to be used on matte paint which offer similar protective properties.

Absolutely. Ceramic coatings can protect all the above.

Anytime. There is never a bad time to get a ceramic coating applied to your car. The best time for your car to be coated is when it is new as the paint should be in its ‘best shape’. A coating will then keep the exterior and interior looking new and protected for years to come. This does not mean that it is too late for used cars. Older vehicles simply tend to have some paint defects and therefore the additional step of a car paint correction service would need to be included. Paint correction will permanently remove those paint defects and restore the gloss and shine to your vehicles paintwork. Once the paint correction process is complete, the shine is locked in with a high-gloss professional-grade paint protection ceramic coating which will last for years to come.

After several years, your coating may wear off which will weaken its protective properties. You may notice that moisture won’t bead and roll off as easily or that dirt might stick now on the paint of your vehicle. If that is the case, reapplication of the ceramic coating is advisable.

For sure! Ceramic Coatings keep that ‘new car’ look. Utilising the latest in nano-coating paint protection technology, we offer the most robust protection for your paintwork, wheels, glass and interior that is proven to last for years. A hard, glossy, chemically resistant barrier against the elements means your car will look cleaner when it’s dirty, be quicker and easier to wash, and require no further waxing and buffing.

A Buff and Beyond offer a package that is designed for new cars. Learn more about our Bronze Paint Protection Package here.

No, and this should also not be necessary. A polish or cutting compound on ceramic coatings will damage or even remove the coating that has been applied. A regular wash is all that should be needed. Once we have applied your coating, we will walk you through how to maintain it properly or we would be happy to maintain it for your with one of our maintenance services.

This depends on the following factors:

  • condition of the paintwork, 
  • vehicles size
  • curing time

As we want the paintwork underneath of the coating to be flawless, a majority of time is spent by preparing the car’s surface to be ready for the ceramic coating application.

When preparing your vehicle’s paintwork, we would

  • wash and decontaminate 
  • remove any scratches, defects and dents (if needed and wanted)

Once the coating is applied it needs to cure for up to 12 hours in a controlled and dust-free environment.

Depending on the service chosen at A Buff and Beyond we would need to have your car for at least 1 day at our premises.

A Buff and Beyond is an accredited installer for GTechniq, Artdeshine, Titan and Drexler coatings.

But our favourite coatings are both Gtechniq and Artdeshine. Specifically:

  • GTechiniq – Crystal Serum Light
  • GTechniq – Crystal Serum Ultra
  • Artdeshine – Ayicon
  • Artdeshine – Ceramic Metal Oxide
  • Artdeshine reduced oxide Graphene
  • SPS reduced oxide Graphene

Ceramic Coatings are applied by hand. The coating is first eye-dropped onto an applicator which is used to apply the ceramic onto your car’s surface. The coating needs to be worked in small sections and evenly. Then, after the coating flashes which is temperature and humidity dependant, a high-end microfiber towel is used to level the coating to ensure it is even and take any excess off. Each microfiber towel can only be used once and needs to be thrown away afterwards due to the microscopic crystals that attach themselves to the towel and harden . This is a time-consuming and time-precision task as the coating starts the curing process as soon as it gets in touch with your vehicle’s paintwork. Hence, it is always advisable to get the ceramic coating applied by a professional and accredited Installer.

Ceramic Coatings can usually be safely applied when the climate is between 5C and 40 C. But humidity of the space is an important factor to consider as the more humid the space, the quicker the coating will flash and require levelling and excess removal. 

No, your car can still be scratched. Ceramic Coatings are not scratch-resistant but do provide an extra layer of protection so that your vehicles topcoat is shielded against finer scratches, swirl marks, and wash marring.

Yes, Ceramic coating prevent rust because water and oxygen (main ingredients for rust) can’t penetrate and reach the metal to form rust.

No. Ceramic Coating is unable to fill in any swirl marks or scratches that you may have. Ceramic Coatings are a protective layer that is added onto your topcoat. Any swirl marks or scratches should be removed before the application of the coating with a paint correction service.

The polymer (the main ingredient of Graphene and Ceramic coatings) used in the coatings at A Buff & Beyond have a very low thermal conductivity to ensure that less heat will be absorbed. The added rGO in a graphene coating will assist with negating any heat that still might have been soaked up. Also, the ingredient rGO has much smaller particles which will help with better dispersion in a silicone coating by spreading out the rGO to form a more uniformed stronger composite that can resist corrosion throughout.
So in conclusion, graphene coatings and ceramic coatings are very similar. However, due to the added benefit of rGO in a graphene coating, you may experience less water spotting that you would with a ceramic coating.

All paint protection packages include a ceramic coating. However, we are happy to upgrade it to a graphene coating at any time if preferred.

All our Car detailing Packages include a car paint correction process which permanently removes paint defects and restores gloss and shine to your vehicles paintwork. Once the paint correction process is complete, the shine is locked in with a high-gloss professional grade paint protection coating which will last for years to come. We are accredited installers of both ceramic coatings and graphene coatings.

I normally do not like to review any businesses but I think I need to for this one, because I did owe previous reviews that made me make decision to contact Fouad. Even tho I am living 150kms from his business workshop. All car lovers if you are thinking of minor paint corrections and paint coating. You would be thinking which types would suit you best, price would come into consideration as well. And for sure we all would love to get the best product and services with the cheapest price. I am the same. The price for Ceramic or Graphene coating is surely much higher than normal waxing. But im thinking of timing to do the coating and the durability of these products per days. Ceramic/Graphene is clearly a better choice for me. Why doing it with the buff and beyond? Please ask Fouad about products he uses and how he would treat your car and compare with other quotes you have before making your decision. It’s like everything. Quality and service versus price. If you love your car and take pride of it. No better place to do car coating than with him. From the start. Quoting was quick it came with explanation of each types of product. Made it easy to choose what suited you most. Scheduling was easy, actually booking my car into service with the Porsche took longer. So all work out well. His workshop is super clean and professional . Everything was delivered on time as promised no delay. The result is amazing. Like I did a new paint on my car. And also coating on windscreen was a cherry on the cake. No more dirty water marks. Communicate with Fouad was easy and professional. Every questions were answered with patient and willingness to make you understand. He is a gentleman absolute pleasure to deal with. Hope my review would help anyone who is thinking of doing coating and thank you Fouad for your amazing job 🙏

A Buff & Beyond done an amazing job on my 24 year old black Toyota Starlet GT Turbo this week. The car had a dodgy respray done at some point in its life and the paint work was far from perfect. To add to this, the roof was very badly sun damaged, with white blotches all over it. I brought the car to Fouad for an initial consultation and after taking some paint thickness measurements, he was confident that he could get the roof back to black and tidy up the majority of the rest of the body. We agreed that the silver package was the way forward for this car. I could not be happier with the outcome! The roof is as close to perfect as could be achieved, as are all of the other panels given the age of the car & the previous botched paint job. He was so careful around some of the existing paint defects to ensure no further damage occurred. Fouad takes great pride in his work and the proof is undoubtedly in the outcome! Highly recommend the work that this company do & I will certainly be back with other vehicles. Thanks Fouad & team.

It's very hard to find honest people in this business. I’m so happy found him! Fouad has shown nothing but professionalism and honesty to me with my car. He told me what and what was not recommended for my car. I have recommended him to friends who have also come back with nothing but positive comments about his work. Don't fall for the dealership paint protection package, let Fouad show you what REAL paint protection is!

A Buff & Beyond is the place to take you car in no matter of the size, to get it professionally coated it at the most efficient time. I have taken my Ford Ranger in for a Bronze pack to get it coated as the car was completely new. The car was already nice and shiny but seeing it after it has been coated, it has completely transferred the look, where the colour has started to pop more and it also became very smooth and even more shiny. Fouad knows what he is doing and you can trust him with your car. Fouad has an exceptional customer service where he would point out any defects on the paint and explain to you what exactly needs to be done to have it treated well. Fouad did a really good job with my car and I couldn’t be happier with the results - definitely recommend A Buff & Beyond!!!

Fouad did a stage one paint correction and applied a ceramic coating to my BMW E90 M3. The car was picked up and returned to me looking amazing, I also received an update call half way through the process updating me on progress. The end result is a glossy and smooth looking car paint, coated and protected for the next couple of years. A huge thank you to Fouad for the excellent work, I highly recommend his services to anyone that wants their car to shine.

Words can’t describe how happy I was with the Service provided by Fouad and the Quality and finish of the product used. I am an old school spray painter by trade and have never liked any products added over the paint to my cars. When I bought my last Audi I was convinced by Audi that I needed a Ceramic coating and in the first 2 weeks it was apparent that it was a total waste of 2k. I just had my Pride and joy Ford Ranger resprayed and didn’t want it coated but after hours of discussion on all the pros by Fouad I agreed to have it done. I can now say that the ceramic coating applied to my car by B&B after 7 weeks is absolutely amazing. In the 2nd week I parked under a tree that gave out a mist of tree sap all over the bonnet and the side of the car. I was so stressed and upset that I walked away. The next day it rained so again left it alone. When it finally cleared up to my surprise the tree sap had all washed off. I can confirm 100% that from now on every car I own will have this product applied by who I now call Car Dr Fouad. The Audi is booked in to strip the old coating applied by Audi and have a new coat applied by B&B.

Car Detailing Information

We understand there is a lot of information out there about car detailing, paint correction,  graphene and ceramic coatings. It can be overwhelming and frustrating at times to go through all that information only to be more confused and have more questions than when you first started. That’s why we have written these accurate, comprehensive yet simple to understand articles regarding paint protection, paint correction, graphene coatings and ceramic coatings – so that you can be informed to make the right decision for your car.

CAR Paint Correction - Let us bring back the shine and the smiles

Thanks to years of extensive testing and research at A Buff & Beyond, we have refined our car paint correction methods to be effective and safe on all types of clear coats.

Paint correction by machines, despite how complicated some websites and videos will attempt to make it look, is really just ‘sanding’. The difference is in the skill, patience and understanding behind diminishing and non-diminishing compounds, pressures, machine speeds, backing plate angles, heat and temperatures, surface areas, residue control, paint thickness, tooling and more – a balancing act that becomes an art with experience.
