Paint Protection
in Sydney

A Ceramic Coating is a liquid polymer that is applied by hand to the exterior of a vehicle. The coating chemically bonds with the vehicle’s factory paint, creating a layer of protection.

A Ceramic Coating is not a substitute for Paint Protection Film, which provides a more comprehensive layer of defensive. Rather, it is a premium wax alternative. A Ceramic Coating creates a bond with a vehicle’s paint, meaning that it does not wash away or break down and does not require repeated application every few months.

  • Long lasting– Detail Lab ceramic coatings are a Nano-Ceramic Paint Protection Coating that forms a permanent bond with the factory paint work that will not wash off or wear away with heavy chemical cleaners like other paint protection products on the market.
  • Protection – Ceramic coatings are a hard ceramic film like layer that has advanced chemical resistance to protect the paint work against contamination that would otherwise affect the paint work such as Bird Poo, Tar, Tree Sap, Bug Splatter, Oxidation and other forms of chemical fall out and contamination.
  • Repellency – Ceramic coatings are Super Hydrophobic so any water and dirt that comes in contact with the surface will simply bead up and roll off, keeping the car cleaner for longer and easier to clean whilst maintaining a high gloss finish.

Experience and superior products ensure a perfect finish that will last.

About Detail Lab Paint Protection Ceramic Coating

How do you apply a Ceramic Coating to my vehicle?

Ceramic coatings are applied by hand after cleaning, decontaminating and polishing the paintwork. We use a special applicator pad  to apply it one panel at a time. It then cures at room temperature over the next few hours.

How long does the Ceramic coating treatment last?

Ceramic coatings form a long lasting chemical bond with the paintwork of your car. Actual durability will vary depending on the types of conditions encountered by each particular vehicle and how well the vehicle is maintained by it’s owner.

The excellent chemical resistance means it will not be easily washed away by cleaning chemicals like some other products on the market.

Good maintenance such as regular washing is recommended for the best performance and durability.

Neglect, such as failure to wash the vehicle regularly, abrasive washing and cleaning with unsuitable implements or brushes at automatic car washes and the use of abrasive polishes will reduce the performance and durability of the treatment.

Will Ceramic car coating offer protection from scratches and stone chips?

No, ceramic coatings, along with other chemically applied treatments on the market does not offer protection from scratches and stone chips.

Why does the car manufacturer not apply ceramic coating at the factory?

Fresh paint should not have protective treatments applied to it for 30 days which makes application unsuitable for a production line situation. Protective treatments are applied by hand which is time consuming and also not suited to a fast moving production line.
