Say Goodbye To Wax, Say Hello To Ceramic Coatings

Ceramic coating can help you maintain the look of your vehicle and allow you more time in between cleaning due to their hydrophobic properties that repel water and dirt. A car protected with a ceramic coating will make it easier to clean and glossy. Unlike wax which may last a few months before re-applying, our ceramic coatings can last up to 10 years! At Mirror Image Auto Detailing, we use only top-quality ceramic coatings to ensure the best result for our client vehicles; Modesta.

Advantages of Ceramic Coating

Ceramic coating creates hydrophobic surfaces that repel water and prevent dirt from sticking quickly. They can be applied to all surfaces, including paint, glass, plastics, wheels, and even interiors!

Ceramic coating is an excellent solution for long-term protection against environmental factors such as acid rain, UV damage, tar adhesion, and permanent damage caused by water spots or bird droppings. Your car’s paint is like the armor that protects it from harm. With these protectors installed, you can be assured of a shiny and clear exterior!

What won’t a ceramic coating do?

Our professional ceramic coating packages offer unparalleled protection for cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. While a ceramic coating from Modesta provides some level of scratch resistance and light marring, they are not bomb-proof and will not protect your vehicle from any severe impact damage!

Our Team Are Here For All Your Protection Needs

Your vehicle is an investment, and you want to keep it looking as good as new with comparatively minimal maintenance. And over time, despite your best efforts washing or waxing the car every few weeks can be tricky – which means hundreds of owners have trusted us for auto detailing needs!

Water spots and bird droppings can cause permanent damage to your vehicle’s clear coat if they are not removed quickly. A ceramic coating will protect against this permanent damage from occurring while making your car look new!

With a ceramic coating, your car’s paint finish is raised to an incredible level. Waxing has been replaced with ceramic coatings as they have been proven over the years to provide better gloss and better hydrophobics, and when maintained properly, they will last many years.

These coatings keep your vehicle looking cleaner for much longer as it makes it more difficult for dirt to stick to the surfaces.

100% Thorough Hand Wash

We use a neutral professional car shampoo and detailing process to clean and remove all bonded dirt.

2 Stage Paint Decontamination

Chemical decontamination such as iron, tar, or water spot removal occurs, followed by a clay bar treatment to remove bonded contaminants from the car’s surface.

Labor Intensive Machine Paint Correction

Our trained technicians make sure your car’s paint is as close to perfection as we can get it using a variety of machine polishers and pads, to remove the swirl marks and minor scratches. This is the most time consuming process of the entire ceramic coating process. Averaging 8-16+ hours per vehicle.

Surface Cleansing Coating Prep

We apply a professional preparation chemical to remove the oils and any remaining contaminants on the surface, then prime your paint with a glass coating primer before starting the ceramic coating installation.

Panel by Panel Installation

Our technicians work together to apply the coating panel-by-panel to ensure complete coverage. Areas like grills and other components are also coated, and then we cure them using IR lamps to ensure the coating is fully bonded to the surfaces. We use an ENTIRE 30ml bottle on your vehicle! 

FAQs – Learn More About Ceramic Coating

1. What is the difference between a coating & wax?

Ceramic coating keeps your vehicle’s paint protected for many years, unlike good quality wax, which will only offer a low level of protection and shine for a few months. Ceramic coatings are seen as a semi-permanent solution to protect your vehicle.

2. How long does it take to install a ceramic coating?

Ceramic coating is the perfect way to keep your car’s paint looking pristine. It can take 6-20 hours for installation, depending on how badly it needs work and if any contaminants need cleaning first.

3. How Does Ceramic Coating Work?

A ceramic coating will protect your vehicle, giving it that new glossy shine, and will help to repel water spots for many years. Protecting the paintwork of cars from elements such as UV rays or environmental stains can cause permanent damage if they sit on your original paint for too long. Providing a sacrificial layer between the elements and your original surfaces will ensure your vehicle always looks great.

4. Which Is Better Sealant Or Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic coating is better than sealants because they bond to your vehicle’s paint on a molecular level, creating a semi-permanent barrier that can only be removed by machine polishing. In contrast, a sealant might be released after only a dozen washes.

5. How long do ceramic coatings last?

Ceramic coatings are the perfect solution for a range of surfaces, and they can last up to 5 years before needing another update!
