Charleston Ceramic Coating Services

Platinum Automotive Center in Charleston, SC, has experienced and trained professionals that can protect your car with ceramic coating. It is crucial to have a trained professional perform your ceramic coating process. It requires strong attention to detail and a consistency that comes from experience. In addition, the coat adheres to and bonds with your car’s paint, meaning it can’t be wiped off or redone if misapplied. 

We also offer paint services and paintless dent removal (PDR) to prepare your car before the ceramic coating. Because the coating layer can magnify any imperfections, our professionals will make sure to check and polish the paint to remove any scratches, discoloration, or blemishes in your existing paint job.

Ceramic Coating Benefits

Ceramic coating is designed to be applied by hand to form a protective layer. With regular maintenance, ceramic coating can provide effective protection for years. This hydrophobic layer creates a shell around your paint, preventing harmful substances from affecting your vehicle’s paint.
Ceramic coating can protect your car from a variety of common contaminants, including:

  • water stains
  • road grime
  • mineral deposits
  • dirt and mud
  • bird droppings
  • sleet and snow
  • road salt

With a quick rinse, these contaminants will wash off without hurting your vehicle’s beautiful paint. 

Ceramic Coating Vs. Wax & Sealant

For decades, car lovers would use wax to keep the shine and luster on their cars. However, the organic substance often requires multiple coats to be applied throughout the year to keep it looking good. Yet, wax still doesn’t even provide complete protection as some contaminants can easily breach the wax barrier.

Today, ceramic coating has become the go-to solution for keeping a synthetic shine without regular maintenance requirements. As a silica-based liquid polymer, ceramic coating offers the shine of wax, and the durability of a sealant, without their common drawbacks.
