Are our ceramic coatings good for my car?

The scratch resistance of Ceramic Coating is often exaggerated. Though some small scratches can be repelled by a ceramic coating, a coated vehicle will not be completely resistant to the risk of rock chips or parking lot scratches.
How durable is a ceramic coating?
Ceramic coatings are a highly durable option when it comes to protecting your paint. Ceramic coatings boast 9H hardness for superior resistance to minor scratches and are generally easier to repair than paint protection films.
How What does 9H mean?
9H refers to the level of hardness test of the ceramic coating once it cures on the surface of your vehicle.
Quartz (Silica Dioxide or SiO2) is the main ingredient in a nano-ceramic coating. This is the main reason why ceramic coating companies use this scale of hardness to determine the ‘strength’ or durability of their product.
Do ceramic coatings work?

What are some ceramic coating myths?
Myth 1: Ceramic coatings are scratch proof
Small scratches can be resisted by Ceramic Coating and the sacrificial layer the car coating forms will certainly help against minor incidents that would otherwise mar your surface. For example, driving through brush
Myth 2: Ceramic Coatings for your car don’t require maintenance
A coating will heavily cut down on the amount of washing and maintenance but not eliminate the need for it. The fact is if you are going to drive your car, the road is dirty and the surface is going to gradually get dirtier even with a ceramic coating.
It will still require washing, just with a lot less effort and less frequency. Additionally, it eliminates the need for waxing every few weeks, saving a lot of money over the course of the ceramic coatings lifetime.
Myth 3: Ceramic coatings are permanent
Partly, this is true. The nano-ceramic coating is semi-permanent, as it bonds with the car surface and cures into a hard and shiny sacrificial layer.
With a good product and proper application, it should last at least 2 years, however, it is not permanent.
Myth 4: Ceramic coatings are easy to apply
This is relatively true. With the new DIY kits becoming available to consumers, the actual application process is relatively easy.
That said, it’s not necessarily simple. Before you can even apply the coating, the surface has to be free of surface blemishes, which applies to even brand new vehicles. The process depends on the condition of the surface. As the ceramic coating will semi-permanently add a layer over your vehicle’s paint, it’s crucial to do any paint restoration before applying the car coating. It’s up to you to decide, but we do recommend having a professional detailing your vehicle to make your paint pristine before applying the coating.
Myth 5: Ceramic coatings are a gimmick
Ceramic coatings are the real deal as it adds a layer to your clear coat. There's only one concern, the vehicle needs to either be brand new - new paint job - or have a full paint correction the coating isn't applied over scratches or swirl marks.
Is it worth it to ceramic coat your car?
Yes, absolutely! for most cars. The marginal investment makes a ceramic car coating well worth purchasing. The upfront cost will pay for itself in savings. A professional application is critical to proper prep and desired results. Especially if you have a high-end or show vehicle.
The important thing is to not expect a magic product that forms a bulletproof force field of protection around your car. What it does do is keep your car looking like it's been recently waxed for years, makes dirt fall off super easy, and does a better job of protecting your paint than any wax or sealant.

FAQ's on Car window Tinting
Tinting your car’s windows will offer countless benefits including protecting the skin by blocking UV rays, cooling your car, and reducing glare – just to name a few. But, before you make the initial purchase, ask yourself these 5 important questions to ensure you are on the right track.
How long will my car’s window tint last?
The life of window films is dependent on many factors including product type and quality, the climate, and the amount of direct sunlight your car is exposed to. Generally, most professionally installed automotive films are designed to last a long time.
How long will it take to tint my car’s windows?
The process can take anywhere from 45 minutes to a few hours depending on how many windows are being tinted. If you’re only adding window film to the two front side doors, the installation will be much quicker than if you desire a full installation that includes all four side windows and the back window. We recommend making an appointment with a professional installer to ensure a quality job.
Is my car’s window film covered by a warranty?
Most quality products come with a limited lifetime warranty. However, you should confirm the exact warranty length and stipulations prior to purchasing any film. Also, make sure you receive a manufacturer’s warranty that is completely filled out by your installer, so you’re covered even if by chance your installer ever goes out of business. It is important that you abide by your state's tint laws. Most warranties will be void if your film installation is illegal. Your installer should know all current tint laws that apply to you.
Which automotive tint is right for me?
In order to select the best film for your vehicle, you should consult a professional installer. There's a wide range of products in a variety of shades and colors, as well as different styles and performance benefits. A professional installer helps you determine which tint best fits your needs. A professional will also help in selecting the best tint for your vehicle that still adheres to state laws. That being said, your window tint is entirely up to you.
How should I care for the tint after installation?
Sure, this sounds like a question to ask after tinting your windows. Yet, knowing what to expect beforehand can help prevent damage to the tint and any inconvenience that comes with it.
Your car’s windows should remain rolled up 2 to 4 days after installation is complete. Rolling them down too early may cause damage before the tint has time to cure.
Ask your tint professional about specifics for your car. Then schedule the tinting for a time when keeping your windows rolled up works for you.
Why is Ceramic window tint considered the gold standard?
Ceramic window tint films are made using nano-ceramic technology which is non-conductive to heat and nonmetallic (no cell phone signal interference). The material itself simply outperforms all other films in laboratory studies in the areas of UV light rejection, infrared light rejection, sun glare reduction, and visibility. In addition, it adds structural stability to the window making the window more shatter-proof.
