Auto Shine Detailing info on ceramic coatings


Why should ceramic coat your vehicle?


  • Permanent protection from UV damage for the life of the coating

  • Resistance to bugs and bird bomb staining

  • Resistance to water spotting and swirling

  • Amazing hydrophobic properties

  • Ease of maintenance

  • No more waxing

  • No more polishing

  • Increase the RESALE value of your vehicle by preserving its aesthetic appearance long term



All our ceramic coating jobs receive:

  • All Prep work needed to apply your ceramic coating

  • Ceramic coating is applied to all: Exterior paint & Headlights

 My car is brand new. Will I still need to have the paint clayed and polished prior to coating application?

​Yes. Any quality detailer will see these steps as the foundation necessary for a quality ceramic coating application. Any detailer or dealership that does not follow these steps prior to applying a ceramic coating are likely improperly applying the coating. Even for a brand-new vehicle “off the truck” thorough wash, clay bar treatment, and light polishing are the absolute minimum before coating application. Often times much more polishing and compounding is needed even on a brand-new vehicle to make sure the surface is as flawless as possible before the ceramic coating is applied.


There is a huge variance in pricing from one detailer to the next, or even from the dealership on the cost of a ceramic coating. What gives?


  • Many factors affect the pricing of a ceramic coating, including but not limited to 

  • ​The experience, knowledge, and skills of the detailer applying the coating.

  • The type of coating being applied, all products are different.

  • The level of preparation needed prior to applying the coating. Some dealerships or detailers will skip steps altogether in order to offer a lower price.

  • The size, color, and manufacturer of the vehicle can also affect pricing. Some vehicles have much softer clear coats that are harder to prepare for coating application than others.
