How To Maintain Your Ceramic Coating

Ceramic Paint Coatings have revolutionized the way we protect and maintain our vehicles. There are MANY options out there in terms of what brand/system is best for you and your vehicle. The best way to find the one that fits you is to do your research, although they do all seem to offer similar performance each has their own unique twist.

Now, your car has been coated with Ceramic Wax or another Ceramic Coating. What is next? How do I maintain the coating I spent hours and hours, hundreds or even thousands of dollars to have installed on my vehicle? What if I mess it up?

The most common question I receive from my clients and DIYer’s alike is how to maintain their coated cars. Surprisingly there isn’t a ton of straight forward information on the best way to do this. The point of this post is to go over the recommend ways to best maintain a coated vehicle’s finish and describe the products in Ethos Car Care line up specifically formulated for this task.

Wash, Maintain, Rejuvenate

Coating maintenance can be broken down into these three simple categories. Although coatings do offer tremendous performance, they aren’t bulletproof or a “set it and forget it” solution. They require maintenance and DO NOT reward neglect.

Routine washing is recommended every week if possible. Since once a coating is applied, it is not recommended to polish or refinish the surface, it is imperative to keep the coated surface as contaminate and defect free as possible. This means not allowing the car to sit dirty for extended periods of time, and to clean or remove any potentially damaging substances like bird droppings or water spots.

Washing (Every 1-2 Weeks)

Whether using a standard two bucket method, or waterless wash system, the objective is simple. Remove debris as safely and efficiently as possible without instilling damage or adding any polymers or fillers that could affect performance of the coating.

Ceramic Shampoo was formulated to be a dedicated wash shampoo for ceramic coated finishes. Enriched with Sio2 ingredients and high purity surfactants, Ceramic Shampoo cleans and conditions ceramic coatings adding gloss and protection to the coating with each wash.

Unlike other car shampoos, Ceramic Shampoo will not interfere with the coatings hydrophobic properties, or leave behind any harmful residues. It is Ph Neutral and provides mountains of foam and lubricity to help reduce wash induced scratching.

Pairing Ceramic Shampoo with a foam gun or foam cannon greatly reduces the time spent washing*

Maintenance (Every 4-6 weeks)

The goal of this process is to get the vehicle clean and further condition the coating with Ceramic Refresh. Like Ceramic Shampoo, Ceramic Refresh was designed to condition and enhance ceramic coatings. Infused with over 10% Sio2 based protectants, Refresh helps to rejuvenate the coatings protective and hydrophobic properties by adding on another layer of protection which bonds to any brand of Ceramic Coating. Paired with Ceramic Wax, Refresh adds an incredibly rich, water repellant layer. Refresh is designed to be easy to use, first wash using Ceramic Shampoo, dry, then spray and buff Refresh to a high shine.

Like anything else, Coatings will age over time. Refresh rejuvenates and refreshes Ceramic Coatings with each application. Re-invigorating their shine, water and dirty repellency with each use!

Rejuvenation (Every 4-6 Months)

Overtime debris and fallout can adhere itself to the coating. This contamination may result in decreased hydrophobic properties or slight roughness to the touch. The goal with this service is to remove any fallout or contaminants and “Deep Clean” the coating surface. Similar to the “Maintenance Step” the goal is to wash and seal the coating, but in addition we will add a chemical decontamination step to further clean the coatings surface. This chemical cleaner is safe for use on any coating and helps remove embedded contaminants, iron deposits and other debris to deep clean the coating and prepare for Ceramic Refresh to further bond to the surface.

Ceramic Cleanser Is currently in development*

Porsche GT3 Xpel Ultimate, Ceramic Coating and Paint Correction – San Diego, CA

A recently acquired GT3 for one of our very good clients came in for a mini restoration and thorough protection. He’s a passionate Porsche collector which is always exciting for us to work with our clients that share the same passion and excitement about their vehicles as we do.

Main issues were a weathered clear bra that needed removal and re application as it was installed in the early 2000’s with older technology film (Lots of distortion, Not Self Healing, etc.). This process took several hours as it would chip away in many small pieces, todays technology won’t crack and fade overtime like this, but always proper care and maintenance is key.

Other issues were the paint condition, owner noted many swirl marks and light scratching throughout. This is very common especially for a vehicle of this caliber and age, oftentimes previous owners “love” their cars a little too much and this leads to them unknowingly causing some damage, but thankfully we are able to safely and effectively restore the paint back to better than new.

Finally, once the car has been prepped, clear bra’d and the paint surface brought back to near perfection the next step is proper protection. Wax and sealants offer good protection and they are better than leaving the paint bare. But, they are made of organic components and thus will weather and wear away fairly quickly from the paint surface resulting in weak durability, protection and will require consistent re-application. Modesta’s line up of 100% in-organic nano glass coatings is a fantastic solution for protecting the paint work from the rigors of street or track driving. It bonds to form a thick and hard glass membrane on top of the clear coat which will not wear away like a wax or sealant would, offering stunning reflections and protection for up to 10 years.

 

 

 

After removal of the weathered partial clear bra kit, we corrected the rest of the front end. As you can see the clear bra did a great job of keeping the paint surface underneath in “Like new” condition. Unfortunately since it was only a partial kit, this meant the area without this protection took the full brunt of the elements and weathered unevenly. This required heavy compounding to recondition the surface before application of a full frontal coverage. We don’t typically recommend partial coverage for this very reason, in addition with a full frontal coverage you don’t get an unsightly line or risk paint damage above where the film starts.

Clear bra installation followed with complete coverage of the hood, fenders and front bumper.

We remove the headlights to wrap inside the edge, we custom wrap*the gas cap cover to wrap inside for a seamless and virtually invisible installation. We wrap edges inside the fenders near the A-Pillars, inside the fenders near the door and everywhere else possible. We even remove the Porsche badge to wrap underneath, its the little things that take an otherwise good installation to the next level and what separates us from the rest.

 

 

After installation we pull the vehicle outside to check everything and to allow the film to cure.

 

 

 

 

After clear bra installation our Level 2 paint correction process followed, as you can see there are various defects needing proper removal.

 

 

 

 

Paint measurements are always taken prior to polishing to ensure healthy paint levels. The paint read a little lower than we would have liked to see, so we had to take a slightly less aggressive process to ensure we don’t remove as much material to preserve the life of the paint for many years to come. This is also why clear bra and Modesta coatings are so crucial as they add measurable thickness in the form of durable protection to shield the paint from the elements.

 

Areas with clear bra read significantly higher!

 

Checking our correction level with LED lights.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After correction and final polishing the vehicle is cleaned using a gentle alcohol based cleanser in preparation for Modesta’s P-01A Primer coating application. This is the first layer of three that comprises the entire glass membrane, this alone adds up to 10 Microns to the paint surface.

The stunning reflections already show through after just Modesta P-01a application.

 

After Modesta P-01a is left to cure overnight, Modesta BC-04 Nano Titanium glass coating is applied. We then use Infrared Cure lamps to properly bond the coating to the paint surface.

 

Finally the car is now protected and ready to hit the streets, every surface is now cleaned, reconditioned and protected.

Wash/Decon process to prep for clear bra application throughout. This step is crucial in order to ensure a clean and consistent installation.

 

 

Clear bra installation begins working from the top down, first order was protecting the rear wing.

 

Mirrors are done in one piece custom, this ensure the maximum coverage possible without a visible seam.

 

Hood is done custom as well, this way we are able to further extend coverage to wrap edges and corners how we see best fit.

 

Edge wrapped and trimmed precisely.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although the Xpel software does a great job with its template designs. We decided the best fit for the RS fenders would be a custom installation. This will allow us to fully wrap inside the fender vents and gas cap are for a seamless appearance and maximum coverage.

 

Film installed and precisely trimmed and wrapped for maximum coverage and no exposed edges.

 

 

 

Headlight surround edge wrapped and trimmed uniformly throughout. A proper film installation should look good even where you’ll never look!

 

 

Bumper coverage we opted to utilize the Xpel designs with numerous design changes we made. This allows us to extend edges and coverage areas.

 

 

One of our signatures is the tow hook, we take this opportunity to custom trim and wrap the film into the tow hook opening and around the tow hook itself. This gives maximum coverage and no visible edges.

 

 

 

Rear bumper installation, we opted to install the film over the OEM decals thus ensuring 100% OEM appearance.

 

 

Filmed installed and edges all heat sealed.

Tesla Model S Echelon PRO Ceramic Coating – San Diego, CA

The absolute best time to protect your Model S is before any damage occurs. Although it is never to late to apply protection solutions to your vehicle our philosophy is prevention rather than repair. The Model S is designed to be driven, and thus will be susceptible to various weathering. Ceramic coatings are a great way to add peace of mind as well as add significant protection to all the surfaces of the vehicle.
Our client Chris, contacted us upon doing some research on the best solutions for his brand new 85D Model S. After several discussions and extensive research we landed on our Echelon PRO Ceramic Coatings as the best fit for his vehicle.
The coating process for new vehicles is oftentimes much less extensive than needed for used vehicles. This is once again due to bare surfaces being much more susceptible to accumulating defects, swirl marks and contaminants.
Our process starts with a thorough decontamination.
Wheels are thoroughly cleaned and decontaminated

The paint surface is then taken through a gentle hand wash process. During this process any loose debris is gently cleaned using lambswool mitts and gentle degreasers.

After the initial decontamination, the vehicle is chemical decontaminated with an industrial fallout remover. This process removes any ferrous contaminants that embed themselves into the paint surfaces. The key to proper bonding of ANY coating is ensuring the paint surface is perfectly clean and defect free.

Here you can see the chemical reaction to the iron contaminants found in the paint surface. This Model S had less than 100 miles on the clock and still showed a good amount of embedded contaminants.

Modesta is unlike other coatings solutions in that it is applied in different layers. The first being an Ceramic based coating polish. This product is polished on and left to cure for 12h before the glass membrane is applied.

After this process Echelon PRO is applied using a wet application method. Due to the extreme hardness of this coating product, water is used during application and removal in order to aid the application process.
Applicators and microfiber towels used during this process have to be thrown away as they will crystalize and harden due to the purity and hardness of the coating.

Infrared lamps are then used to bake the coating at 130-50*F for 15 min. This increases both the hardness and durability of the coating by further bonding it to the paint surface.

Then, after curing overnight the vehicle is prepped and ready for delivery after attending to the wheels and various other details.

Please contact me regarding your Model S or any questions you may have. We offer many different protection solutions, Echelon PRO being one of our top Ceramic Coating options.
Ceramic Coatings are not for everyone but we can find a solution that best fits you and your vehicle needs.
