Ceramic Coatings

What is a quartz (ceramic) coating? 

It's a solid, slick and highly self-cleaning silica-based protective layer. A mixture of SiO2 or Polysilazanes with solvents and other, less crucial additives comes in the bottle as a liquid. After application to the surface, the product levels on the porous surfaces of the paint and while solvents evaporate, it becomes first gel-like and finally crystallises to a solid and fully transparent layer. The moisture in the air is one of the main reaction catalysts. This is why both temperature and humidity are crucial during the application and use of IR-lamps is highly recommended afterwards. 

A crystallised layer bonds with the paintwork of the paint and changes it's finish, virtually closing the pores and making the surface smooth, slick and extremely glossy. 

What are the benefits of a quartz coating?

Self cleaning effect 

A slick and smooth surface repels water, dirt and light contamination. It makes the daily maintenance routine less frequent and quicker. 


The vertical hardness and structural integrity of a fully cured ceramic coating largely influences the durability and resistance. The vertical hardness of a coating helps protecting from oxidation caused by UV rays. 


The glass like gloss, a signature touch of ceramic coatings, is incomparable with any other form of protection and a crucial feature for all those, who are mainly after the look of the car. 

Chemical resistance

Full resistance against any chemicals with the ph between 2 and 11. No chemical is able to remove a fully cured ceramic coating (except for body shop paint removers and super-strong solvents). Chemicals with ph 1 or above 11 will not remove the coating, but may affect the hydrophobicity.
