Auto detailing coatings are a great way to protect your car’s paint from the harsh outdoor environment and helps to maintain the aesthetic look. However, the cost of these coatings varies depending on the type of coating and the size of your vehicle.

In this guide, we’ll take a look at the various types of auto detailing coatings, prices, and what to expect when you get your car coated.

Types of Auto Detailing Coatings

There are three main type of auto detailing coatings: ceramic, graphene and paint protection films (PPF).

Ceramic coatings, made of silicone dioxide, is a type of clear semi-permanent auto body protection that is applied onto your car. They guard against harsh elements including UV rays, bird droppings, and road tar. The other upside of ceramic coatings is that they also make your car’s paint look shinier and resistant to scratches, achieving aesthetics and protection in one go.

Graphene coatings, are the latest tech advancement to one up ceramic coating. Graphene is an ultra-hard and anti-static coating which gives the benefit of hydrophobic properties and repels dust. It lasts longer compared to ceramic coating making it a worthwhile investment for passionate car owners to take their hobby to the next level.

On the other hand, PPF is a thicker, more durable film that is also applied to your car’s paint. PPF provides even better protection than ceramic coatings from the outdoor elements but the cost is far more expensive than ceramic coatings. For the case of this guide, we’ll focus on Ceramic Coatings to provide better information for you to make a well-informed decision.

What to Expect When You Get Your Car Coated

When you send your car for coating, the detailers will usually wash and clean your car thoroughly to remove dirt. They will then apply the coating onto your car using professional applicators. The coating will need to be cured for several hours or even overnight before you are able to pick your car up.

After the coating has cured, your car will be protected from the outdoor elements and will look its best. You will then need to wash your car regularly but most importantly; you do not need to wax or use any type of polish anymore for a few years with proper care.
