Ceramic Coating FAQ

How Do I Maintain My Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic Coatings make maintenance easy! While washes may be needed less often, it is definitely recommended to protect the warranty on your vehicle. We would recommend our Mini Detail once every few weeks to ensure your coating is in it’s best shape.

Why Shouldn't I Just Use a Store-Bought Sealant Instead?

A large part of why Opti-Coat Ceramic Coatings are so effective and last so long is the application process! Preparing the paint and applying the Opti-Coat Coating are very labor intensive processes that ensure you have a coating the lasts. Store-bought sealants are often just sprayed on to the paint and only last a few weeks. Opti-Coat provides a glossier, more hydrophobic, and longer lasting coating than cheaper alternatives.
