Why Paint Seal?
Paint protection sealant, or nanocoating as it is sometimes known, is one of the best ways to preserve the showroom quality finish on your vehicle. This virtually invisible shell of protection will keep your vehicle looking newer longer, without changing the design features or color. It will protect vulnerable areas such as front bumpers, hoods, side mirrors, door handle cavities, door edges, rocker panels, and rear fender panels.

Full hoods, trunks and roofs from bird droppings and tree sap
Benefits of Nano Coating
Automotive Paint Protection
The most obvious benefit of Ceramic Pro is it offers a glass shield which affords your car’s paint a first layer of protection. The transparent coating works without altering the appearance of the original paint job. No hardwater marks as any liquid will quickly shed away from the protected area.
Coating products can be utilized on any car, truck or SUV and can be applied to the hood, bumper, fender, lights and mirrors, protecting anything it is applied to. It can also be used effectively on boats, bicycles, motor homes and even outside furniture.
Protection coatings are zero maintenance. Simply wash your vehicle as you usually do, in fact you will find it even easier to maintain than before the product was applied.
No matter the substrate we have a coating for you

Is Ceramic Pro safe for my paint?
This product is specially formatted not to damage your paint or clearcoat and will void no manufacture warranty.
Does Ceramic Pro fade, crack or yellow?
Having undergone real life and SGS testing Ceramic Pro has stood up to testing in even the harshest environments.
Is Ceramic Pro an alternate to wax?
Yes. Once applied you will never need to wax again. Cleaning your vehicle will be as easy as cleaning your windshield with no need for harsh wash products or waxing.
Will Ceramic Pro protect my vehicle from scratching?
Yes! After the coating cures it will become 3 times harder than your paint. Ceramic pro is a glass coating and while we all know glass can still be scratched or chipped it is much more resistant than your stock clearcoat.
Can Ceramic Pro coat other areas of my vehicle?
Yes. We can coat paint, wood, plastics, leather, glass, wheels, calipers, and much more.
Does the product require annual servicing?
Yes. To maintain your warranty, you need to attend an annual service. This is to ensure the Ceramic Pro performs properly for the entire length of the warranty. If an annual inspection is missed, the warranty defaults to the lesser package at the time of the missed annual inspection. i.e. A Gold (Lifetime) warranty becomes a Silver (5 year) warranty when an annual service is missed.
What is the application process and how long does it take?
The process of Ceramic Pro will take between 1-5 days depending on the condition of your paint, the size of the vehicle and the packages you select. The 1st step is to wash and prep the vehicle. The 2nd step is to correct all the imperfections in the paint such as swirls and scratches. Once the vehicle is properly prepped, a body shop safe prep solvent will be applied to the entire vehicle to get to bare paint. At this stage the coating process will begin, and each panel of the vehicle will have Ceramic Pro applied, leveled, and stacked to achieve the package you have selected.
Can I apply Ceramic Pro to my own vehicle?
Ceramic Pro does not recommend this, as there will be no warranty and if done incorrectly you may permanently alter your vehicle.
Can you coat vinyl wrap? Do you recommend coating my new vehicle wrap?
Yes we can. Using specially formulated PPF film and vinyl coating we can coat your new wrap. This will add an additional layer of coating and make the products even easier to clean. Vehicle wrap films can still scratch coating them will help keep them in perfect condition. As vehicle wrap and PPF installs we know the ins and outs on how to use these products in perfect harmony.
You just powdercoated my wheels/calipers, can i coat them?
Yes we can, in fact we even discount the service in tandem since we want your vehicle looking as good as you do. Coating wheels and calipers will make cleaning them a breeze brake dust will simply spray away with a good hose.
