If you’re looking for a new paint protection option for your car, you may have heard of ceramic coatings. Ceramic coatings are a slick, transparent, self-cleaning, silica-based protective layer for painted and other surfaces. This relatively new technology has quickly gained popularity in the automotive industry among consumers and professionals alike.
Here are 7 reasons why people love ceramic coatings:
1. Ceramic coatings protect against the elements.
Ceramic coatings are a great way to protect your car from the elements. They provide a barrier against things like UV rays, dirt, and bird droppings, and can even help to resist stains.
2. Ceramic coatings make it easy to keep your car clean.
Ceramic coatings are a type of protective coating that can be applied to your car’s paint. Their chemical composition creates a barrier between your paint and the outside world, making it harder for dirt and grime to stick to your car. And best of all, this means that they make it easier to keep your car clean – a simple wash will do the trick.
3. Ceramic coatings improve the look of your car.
Ceramic coatings are a great way to improve the look of your car. They can make your car look shiny and new by deepening the gloss of your paintwork, trim, vinyl, and leather. Their self-cleaning ability also improves the look of your car by rejecting dirt and debris.
4. Ceramic coatings can last for years.
Depending on their formulation, ceramic coatings can last for years. Each brand and coating is different so it’s important to find the right coating for you and your vehicle. The lifespan of your ceramic coating greatly depends on how you maintain it. At Urban Werks, we install GYEON Quartz Coatings. GYEON’s revolutionary coating system offers a flexible warranty ranging from 3 years to 10 years to infinite.

5. Ceramic coatings come in a variety of finishes to suit your car’s paintwork.
Don’t worry if your car has matte or satin paintwork — you can still enjoy the benefits of a ceramic coating. Most coating brands offer options that have been specially formulated to maintain the matte or satin finish of your paint.
6. Ceramic coatings can be applied to a variety of surfaces.
Love the sound of ceramic coatings? Want to protect every surface of your car? You absolutely can. There are specific coatings designed for leather, vinyl, fabric, plastics, wheels, and glass. At Urban Werks, all of our exterior ceramic coating packages cover paintwork, exterior trim, exterior glass, and wheel faces.
7. Ceramic coatings can be layered with other protective options.
If your car already has Paint Protection Film (PPF, Clear Bra) or are planning to have PPF installed, ceramic coatings can provide a layer of protection to the clear film itself. This can make keeping your film clean even easier, protecting the clarity and durability of the film.
