How Long Does Ceramic Paint Coating Last?

lamborghini ceramic paint coatingA big concern that automobile owners have when considering the installation of a ceramic paint coating for their vehicle is how long the coating will last. We realize a ceramic paint coating is an investment and you want to make sure it’s worth it. The new coating needs to not only endure for a long time, but also protect the vehicle against attacks from harsh weather and environmental contaminants.

When ceramic paint coatings arrived on the market, car owners often wanted to know how well the coating holds up in comparison to other forms of paint protection. Let’s answer that question with respect to two popular ceramic coatings.

Ceramic Pro

Ceramic Pro 9H forms a permanent bond with the surface of a vehicle which does not wash off nor break down over time. The strength of the bond is so strong that the only way to remove the coating is through abrasion, such as machine compounding or sanding. The vehicle’s paintwork is protected by a highly durable coating that keeps the vehicle safe from all sorts of contaminants. Ceramic Pro 9H can be applied in multiple layers, increasing the durability of the protective coat.

Thus, with Ceramic Pro 9H, the car surface is protected against light marring caused by improper washing and drying, weather and UV rays and other contaminants. The car is also protected from excessive heat and water and oil-based particles, which slide easily off the surface of the ceramic paint coating. This makes cleaning your vehicle much easier, and it stays cleaner for longer. Ceramic Pro offers up to a lifetime warranty, depending on which package you select.

Opti-Coat Pro+

Another popular ceramic coating option, Opti-Coat Pro+ offers permanent protection for the vehicle’s paint. Opti-Coat Pro+ causes a chemical reaction with your clear coat, resulting in a solid permanent coating. Its hydrophobic properties mean water beads and sheets off the surface, carrying away contaminants and dirt. The coating keeps the car surface looking good despite harsh weather conditions, the sun’s ultraviolet rays, elevated road temperatures, bug splatter, bird droppings and other harmful factors that are an inevitable part of driving a car for any extended period. Opti-Coat Pro+ comes with a seven-year warranty.

In contrast with regular paint protection, such as car wax, which need to be replaced every few months, a single coat of either Ceramic Pro 9H or Opti-Coat Pro+ can provide permanent protection for your vehicle.
