Get the feeling of driving a new car, everyday with a Ceramic Coating Installation
Ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that is applied by hand to the exterior of a vehicle. The coating
chemically bonds with the vehicle’s surface, creating a layer of protection that increases both the
hardness and self cleaning ability of your paint work, PPF, or vinyl wrap finishes.
At Kars Kustoms, we are Ceramic Pro certified installers. We provide the best Ceramic Coating Installations in New Westminster.

Key Benefits of Ceramic Coating

After a surface is protected with Ceramic Coating, the coating begins to repel water and water splashes
slide off more easily. This also means that mud and grime struggles to bond to the surfaces of your
vehicle and in turn means when you wash your car, contaminants can be removed with less effort.

Easy Cleaning
Ceramic Coated vehicles are typically much easier to clean and since it is a permanent bonded surface
finish, you do not need to wax or polish your vehicles as often.

UV Protection
A layer of Ceramic Coating protects your vehicle’s paint work or surface finish from the suns’s ultraviolet
rays, which in turn prolongs the finish and depth of your vehicle color

Scratch Resistance
Ceramic Coated vehicles are more resistant to light scraches caused by typical day – day wearing, dirt
build up, and improper washing
As Ceramic Coating creates a chemically resistant surface, it also provides protection against naturally
acidic contaminants – provided the contaminants is removed in a timely manner.

Enhanced Finish
Your vehicle can be Cermaic Coated to enhance the exsisting finish, either in a gloss or a matte finish. A
high gloss finish offers enhanced reflective properties making even the most refined paint work pop
with a supreme clarity. There are Ceramic Coatings designed for matte finishes as well to give an
enhanced, deeper color.



Ceramic Coating vs. Paint Protection Film

When it comes to maintaining the appearance of your car’s paint, choosing the right paint protection option is crucial. In a market that feels incredibly saturated, it is important to know what your paint protection options are in order to make an educated decision. Among the most popular choices are Ceramic Coating and Paint Protection Film (PPF). In this article, we’ll dive into both of these options, discuss their respective pros and cons, and even explore the possibility of combining them for enhanced protection.

Ceramic Coating: What Is It?

Definition: Ceramic coating is a cutting-edge protective layer for your car’s paint. It is a liquid polymer applied to the car’s exterior, most likely after a paint correction. It bonds with the automotive paint or clear coat to create a protective shield. Here’s a closer look:

How it Works: Ceramic coatings chemically bond with the paint, creating a hydrophobic surface that repels water, dirt, and contaminants.

Benefits of Ceramic Coating:

  • Enhanced Glass: Ceramic coatings provide a deep, glossy finish that enhances the car’s appearance.
  • Protection Against UV Rays and Oxidation: They shield the paint from harmful UV rays, preventing color fading and oxidation.
  • Resistance to Environmental Contaminants: Ceramic coatings offer protection against bird droppings, tree sap, and other environmental contaminants.
  • Ease of Cleaning: The hydrophobic properties make it easier to wash away dirt and grime and prevent water spots.

Limitations of Ceramic Coating:

  • Not Impact-Resistant: Ceramic coatings are designed to make your paint more slippery and are not designed to protect it from rock chips and road debris like a PPF would.
  • Labor-Intensive Application: Applying ceramic coating correctly can be labor-intensive and requires careful preparation, detailing, and paint correction.

Paint Protection Film (PPF): What Is It?

Paint Protection Film, often referred to as “clear bra,” is a physical barrier designed to provide a high level of protection for your vehicle’s paint job from abrasion and various types of damage. Here’s what you need to know:

Definition:  PPF is a transparent, thermoplastic urethane film that is applied directly to the car’s painted surfaces and headlights.

Advantages of PPF:

  • Superior Protection:  PPF excels at shielding your vehicle from rock chips, scratches, and other physical damage.
  • Self-Healing Properties:  It has self-healing properties that can repair minor scratches and swirl marks over time.
  • Durability and Longevity:  PPF is known for its long-lasting protection, often lasting several years.
  • High-Impact Resistance:  It provides excellent resistance against impact damage, keeping your paintwork looking like a new car.

Drawbacks of PPF:

  • Costlier:  PPF installation can be significantly more expensive than ceramic coating.
  • Complex Installation:  Applying PPF properly requires skill and precision, often necessitating professional installation.


Combining Ceramic Coating and PPF

But what if you want the best of both worlds? Fortunately, you can combine ceramic coating with PPF for comprehensive protection. Ceramic Pro offers the Ultimate Armor Package, which was designed to provide a lifetime of protection for your entire vehicle by combining our ceramic coatings and high-performing paint protection films. This hybrid approach offers:

  • Enhanced Protection: Enjoy the benefits of PPF’s superior impact resistance while also benefiting from the hydrophobic and contaminant-resistant properties of ceramic coatings.
  • Improved Aesthetics: Your vehicle will have a glossy finish while being shielded from rock chips and scratches.
  • Long-Lasting Results: The combination of these two protective layers ensures that your car stays protected for an extended period.
