Benefits of a Ceramic Coating
For those of you who aren’t familiar with what a ceramic coating is, a ceramic coating is a Si02 based formula that is scientifically engineered to penetrate microscopic imperfections on solid surfaces. The ceramic coating chemically bonds to your vehicle’s paint surface to create a layer of protection on top of the clear coat. Our Adam’s Pro Ceramic Coating has a hardness rating of 9H which is the highest rating on the pencil scale of hardness.

Save money with a ceramic coating
The cost of a professionally installed ceramic coating typically costs between $1,000 – $1,800 (based upon the vehicle condition, size and area you live in). If the ceramic coating you have applied lasts between 2-3 years your cost per year is anywhere from $300 – $600 per year.
If you were to pay someone to wash and apply a wax or paint sealant to your vehicle every 3 months we typically charge between $200-250 for a wash and wax / paint sealant application. So multiply that 4 times a year you’re looking at a minimum of $800 a year. At the 3 year mark, you’ve invested $3,200 just to have your vehicle protected with wax.
When you break it down, the initial cost of a ceramic coating is more but the benefits far outweigh the benefits of traditional waxes and paint sealants.
Spend less time maintaining your vehicle
Ceramic coatings are very hydrophobic. Hydrophobicity is the big word we use to describe anything that repels water. Our Adam’s Pro Ceramic Coating is basically self-cleaning which doesn’t allow dirt build-up and keeps your vehicle cleaner longer.
Your vehicle’s surface remains clean because of the low surface tension we have created by correcting the paint surface and applying our ceramic coating. Low surface tension doesn’t allow things to adhere to the paint surface making your stay cleaner longer.
Add GLOSS and VALUE to your vehicle with Adam’s Pro Ceramic Coating
Our Adam’s Pro Ceramic Coating gives your vehicles paint insane amounts of GLOSS. As we mentioned earlier, we remove imperfections in the paint surface before we apply the coating. Once the surface is free of imperfections we then apply our ceramic coating which enhances the reflective properties, adds depth and clarity to your vehicle’s factory paint.
Now let’s talk about the VALUE part. The Adam’s Pro Ceramic Coating can be reported to your CarFax report. Every vehicle we apply the Pro coating to gets its VIN reported to CarFax for our coating installation to be applied on their CarFax report. This will follow the vehicle throughout the entirety of its life and add value or help retain your vehicle’s resell value.
Protection against the elements
Ceramic coatings provide protection against the elements such as bird droppings, UV rays, corrosive contaminants, water spots, etching, bug guts and stains.
Leaving corrosive contaminants on your ceramic coating can still cause damage if left on for long periods of time. The hardness of the ceramic coating gives you a longer period of time before contaminants can cause permanent damage to your clearcoat.
Ceramic coatings last longer than traditional waxes or paint sealants
Paint waxes are usually composed of carnauba wax, other waxes and natural oils. Typically they are in paste form and have to be reapplied within 1-3 months to maintain protection and shine.
Paint sealants are manufactured from synthetic waxes and are designed to protect the surface of your vehicle from the elements. Most sealants adhere to the surface of the paint and offer better protection than waxes.
Both waxes and sealants offer protection but typically only last a couple of months. This is because they have a low melting point and can’t withstand the elements as a ceramic coating can.
We prep a vehicles surface with paint decontamination, 1-step paint correction and surface prep before any of our ceramic coatings are applied to a vehicle. This creates a smooth, level surface for the ceramic coating to bond with and creates a long-lasting shine. Ceramic coatings can withstand higher temperatures and take the abuse from the elements to last anywhere between 2-5 years.
