Ceramic Coatings: What You Need to Know

April 2021

Ceramic coating is a luxurious way to protect your car’s paint that not only looks great, but also helps preserve the original shape and condition of the vehicle.


Some car owners decide to have their vehicles coated for the sake of convenience, so they don’t have to spend hours washing, waxing, and polishing them every few weeks. Others choose ceramic coating because they believe it looks better than paint. Still others want to avoid getting swirl marks and other light scratches in their vehicle's paint job.


Ceramic coating is made with ceramic resin and grain filler. Curing of the coating is achieved through the use of an infrared lamp. It can be installed on any surface, as long as there is a smooth, clean, and dry surface to adhere to.


Ceramic coating provides both protection and style for your vehicle’s paint or metal surfaces. It helps protect paint from UV rays and other environmental elements that can damage or fade the original paint job over time.


Ceramic coating is a great way to enhance your vehicle’s appearance. It is available in a wide range of colors, styles, and patterns. Because of its high gloss finish, ceramic coating can also offer increased protection against scratches and road rash.


Choosing the right color is very important because it has an effect on how the vehicle looks. To choose the right color for your vehicle it may help to look at some examples of vehicles that have used ceramic coating. People prefer using car paints that are slightly different from their own cars because they want to create an artistic yet distinct style for their vehicles.

As well as being applied to bare metals, reactive glass can be used to improve the appearance of non-ferrous metals such as copper, brass, aluminium and bronze.


Properties of Ceramic Coating:



  1. Excellent hard-wearing properties on steel and alloys, ensures long life for your equipment or decoration.

  2. Attack resistance against acids & alkalis is high at neutral and low pH values. It is also resistant to deposits from salts or fertilizers, is not corrosive and unlikely to cause corrosion fatigue.

  3. Good adhesion to metal surfaces, no paint primer required.

  4. Excellent resistance to abrasion from sand & grits, also resistant to chlorides.

  5. Good resistance against de-icing salts and salt spray.

  6. Excellent resistance to fire, lightning and high temperatures.

  7. Excellent environmental properties, no VOCs or CFCs emitted from the material applied to the substrate.

  8. Seals out atmospheric moisture making it an excellent long-term protection for steel and alloys exposed in marine environment applications such as shipbuilding where a long-term protection is needed.

  9. Able to be cut or drilled without losing adhesion or performance characteristics as compared with conventional one component putties such as epoxy, urethane adhesives etc.


Ceramic coating can be applied without damaging or scratching any surface that it is applied to. Ceramic coating is a clear-coat applied to the surface of metals that has been baked onto the metal's surface and is often referred to as "reactive glass" or “our ceramic coating".


It has been widely praised as an effective and economical means of enhancing the beauty, performance, and longevity of exposed metals. With an annual cost savings of $200-$300 for every tone coat of reactive glass applied to ferrous metals, it’s not hard to see why.
