Ceramic Coating Application by Autofolie
Ceramic coating is a protective, non-stick surface applied to metal surfaces like your car, motorcycle or even pots and pans in your kitchen. It protects against rust and corrosion, making items last longer and look better for years! Cleaning is also much more manageable as grease just slides off the surface. We recommend a quality ceramic coating every three years to maintain protection.
Autofolie has been providing our customers with quality products for over ten years. As a result, we have one of the best coatings on the market: not only does it offer excellent abrasion resistance, but it also has high levels of UV protection.
Ceramic coatings have a number of benefits, and we are listing some of them below:
UV Damage: The sun’s UV rays are one of the most significant contributors to discoloration and fading over time. With a ceramic coating, your paint job is protected from this type of damage, preserving its shine and colour for many years. It’s no secret that our climate here in Canada is anything but stable! A ceramic coating prevents water from sitting on your paint job for long periods by repelling it like a magnet – dirt won’t stick as quickly, either!
Enhanced Finish: Your ride has never looked so good! The sleek surface of a ceramic-coated vehicle has an improved finish that looks great inside and out, giving your car or truck a more luxurious look.
Protects Your Vehicle from Chemical Damage: One of the most overlooked aspects of choosing paint protection is ensuring that it protects your vehicle from chemical damage. When chemicals such as gasoline, brake fluid, anti-freeze, etc., come into contact with unprotected metal surfaces, corrosion can lead to costly repairs.
Keeps Your Vehicle Clean: Waxes and polishes can only do so much; if you want your vehicle to stay shiny and free of contaminants, then a ceramic coating is what you need. It repels dust, insects and bird droppings like nobody’s business while protecting your paint job from all sorts of pollution – what more could you ask for?

The answer is no. Ceramic coating will not adhere to plastic or glass surfaces. If you want to use a ceramic coating, it must be applied directly onto the metal surface before the paint goes on.
Just as you would before washing a car, protect your finish by covering it with a layer of plastic or other waterproof material when not in use. This will keep the dirt and grime from building up and making removing it more difficult. If you want to minimize work, choose a colour that matches your car so the dirt can’t be seen as quickly.
No. Ceramic coating is not permanent and will wear off over time. The average lifespan is 1-2 years before the paint has worn off enough to where it needs to be reapplied. If you want a long-term solution, you should consider having your vehicle wrapped or using a vinyl wrap instead.
Ceramic Coating is a two-stage process, and curing time will depend on the temperature, humidity and atmospheric conditions. The first stage can take anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour, depending on how thick the coating has been applied. After this, it needs to cure for about 12 hours before being able to handle any kind of impact or getting wet.
