Ceramic coatings are a type of paint protection that can be applied to your car's exterior. Typically ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that when applied, bonds with the paint of your car to give it longer lasting protection against the weather, such as UV rays, and protection against markings. They work by forming a protective barrier on the surface of your car's paint job, which helps to keep it looking new for longer. Ceramic coatings are also known for their resistance to scratches, fading and other forms of wear and tear.
