This article is intended to help you catch up on what a ceramic coating is, how it benefits you, and why The Auto Protectors should be your trusted source of getting this kind of work done to your car. 

What is Automotive Ceramic Coating? 

Automotive ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that is applied to the exterior of a vehicle to protect the paint and other surfaces from damage caused by various environmental factors. This form of paint protection film is a thin, transparent layer that chemically bonds to the surface of the vehicle to create a protective barrier that is resistant to:

  • scratches 
  • UV rays
  • Chemicals
  • and other contaminants

Automotive ceramic coating is made up of nanoparticles that are extremely small and have unique properties that make them highly effective at protecting the surface of the vehicle. When applied correctly, ceramic coatings can create a hydrophobic effect that causes water to bead up and slide off the surface of the vehicle, making it easier to clean and reducing the risk of water damage.

Ceramic coatings can also provide a high level of gloss and depth to the paint, enhancing the overall appearance of the vehicle. They are often used by car enthusiasts and detailing professionals to protect high-end vehicles and improve their resale value.

It is important to note that automotive ceramic coating is not a substitute for regular car maintenance, but rather an additional layer of protection that can help prolong the life and appearance of a vehicle.

The Benefits of Using Ceramic Coating For Your Car in Calgary 

Anyone who drives in Calgary may know that the road conditions here are not the best for keeping your vehicle’s paint job looking perfect, and that paint protection is essential. There are several benefits of using ceramic coating for your car:


Ceramic coatings provide excellent protection against various environmental contaminants such as UV rays, bird droppings, tree sap, acid rain, and other harsh chemicals. It creates a protective barrier between the paint and the outside world, which helps to prevent scratches and swirl marks.


Ceramic coatings are known for their durability and long-lasting performance. Unlike traditional wax and sealant products, which wear off over time, ceramic coatings can last for several years with proper maintenance.

Ease of maintenance

Ceramic coatings make it much easier to maintain the appearance of your car. The hydrophobic properties of the coating make it difficult for dirt and grime to adhere to the surface of the car, which means that it can be easily washed off with a gentle soap and water wash.

Enhanced appearance

Ceramic coatings can enhance the appearance of your car by providing a high level of gloss and depth to the paint. This makes the colours look more vibrant and the finish appears sleek and shiny.

Resale value

A well-maintained car with a ceramic coating can fetch a higher resale value compared to a car with faded or damaged paint. This is because the coating helps to preserve the appearance of the car, making it look newer and more valuable to potential buyers.


While ceramic coating may require a higher initial investment compared to traditional wax and sealant products, it is cost-effective in the long run due to its durability and long-lasting performance. It eliminates the need for frequent reapplication of wax or sealant, which can save both time and money.
