General Information on Ceramic Coating Servicing Auburn, Bay City and Freeland MI 

Ceramic Coating is a paint protection product that uses technology to defend your vehicle’s paint against the elements and everyday wear. Keep your car looking fresh. 


What Is Ceramic Coating?

True ceramic coating is a long-term nanoscopic exterior automotive paint treatment and protectant that is applied in a liquid form and cures to form a hard layer on top of the paint. Essentially, it’s the candy shell that protects the paint’s delicious chocolate center. 

What are the benefits of ceramic coating?

Ceramic coating has several benefits but we want to focus on the most important ones such as UV protection, chemical staining protection, unmatched gloss,minor scratch resistance and the ease of clean that ceramic coating provides.

Can I Ceramic Coat My Vehicle Without Paint Correction?

Many clients ask can they ceramic coat their vehicle without paint correction, the simple answer is NO. The preparation work that goes into vehicles is what ensures that the ceramic coating has a proper bond from the decontamination wash and clay bar to the paint correction all of these steps are mandatory especially at Ficks Auto Detailing we operate under the highest standards.

The best way to protect your investment!

Ceramic Coating Paint Protection That Lasts

A QUALITY ceramic coating will utilize nanotechnology, which are microscopic particles that form a very fine, thin layer completely invisible to the eye. These particles are so small, when applied to a finish, they seal all the pores making the substance hydrophobic (water-repellent), but also resistant to UV, scratches, chemicals, extreme heat, and even anti-graffiti.

This hard ceramic layer results in a completely transparent shield of protection. The strength of this coat protects the paint from damage via UV rays, spray chemicals, and other contaminants.
