Permanent Coatings - Ceramic Coatings - Hydrophobic CoatingsCeramic coatings, or semi permanent coatings as they’re sometimes referred to, are a much longer lasting hydrophobic coating that help to protect your car so that it can better withstand the elements and most of what “Mother Nature” and our roads can throw at your car. These coating are liguids that form an incredibly strong barrier to protect your vehicle for years. There are a variety of companies that offer these protective exterior and interior coatings. At EXL Auto Detailing, I prefer to use Gyeon, G-Techniq, and Kamikaze products because I have found them to be very durable and live up to the high ratings that they receive.

Ceramic coatings can last upwards of 3 – 9 years when applied and maintained correctly. Even though they are not the end all to maintaining your vehicle, they can help to go a long way towards keeping your car’s exterior protected and looking nice so that it continues to have a great depth of shine.

These coatings can be applied to most of your vehicle’s exterior surfaces – including applications to the wheels, hard plastic trim, chrome, and even to the glass.

Interior Coatings can be applied to leather, fabric and carpet to protect from spills, stains, sun damage.

If you love your car or truck and want to keep it looking its best for years to come, this is a great option to consider.

Ceramic Semi-Permanent Auto Coatings

Below are the before and after photographs of a 2011 Range Rover that was coated back in 2017 with G-Techniq Crystal Serum Light and EXO v3 on the paint, Car Pro DLux on the plastic trim, and 22ple HPC on the glass. The pictures below are some before and after pictures of the truck after just a hand washing. Nearly two years after the truck was coated the paint is still practically flawless and the surfaces very hydrophobic and clean up like new. These pictures are a good example of what semi-permanent “Ceramic” coatings can do when professionally applied to you car.
