Ceramic Coating Aftercare Instructions

Congratulations on making the wise decision to protect your vehicle with Ceramic Pro’s Nanoceramic Coatings. Our revolutionary nanotechnology-infused Ceramic Pro coatings help to protect your vehicle’s factory clear coat. It is tremendously effective at doing so. However, it is not bulletproof and will require routine aftercare to maintain the integrity of the coating.

By following our manufacturer-recommended ceramic coating care instructions, your vehicle will be eligible for warranties, and your coating will hold up for many years. Watch our video for more maintenance and aftercare information.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Does It Take for Ceramic Coating to Cure?

The coatings will cure enough to drive outside within 48 hours. Depending on the type of ceramic coating, the typical curing process takes up to two weeks. This is the period that we recommend waiting before washing the vehicle.

How Do I Care for My Car After Ceramic Coating?

Whether you choose an entry-level Ceramic Pro Sport coating or a Gold Package, taking care of any ceramic-coated vehicle follows a simple six-step process.

Step 1: Always wash your coated car or vehicle every two weeks. With a ceramic coating, you must remove surface debris every few weeks. You can occasionally use a foam cannon and high-pressure hose to rinse and wash a ceramic-coated vehicle.

Step 2: Use the Two Bucket car wash technique. We strongly recommend completing a hand wash using the two-bucket car washing method at least once monthly. This will remove stubborn debris and contaminants, like bird droppings, tree sap, industrial toxins, pollen build-up, and more. These substances can lead to cross-contamination, reducing ceramic coatings’ hydrophobic properties.

Step 3: Use the Right Ceramic Coating Aftercare Soap. Americana Global Ceramic Aftercare shampoo is specifically formulated to maintain ceramic-coated vehicles. The key is not to use car soaps with wax or petroleum distillates or have high or low pH levels. You can use a foam gun or pressure washer and foam cannon for weekly standard home washing.

Step 4: Avoid washing direct sunlight or warm to the touch surfaces. Car washes should always be completed in the shade or early in the morning – late in the afternoon. The key is NOT to wash any warm or hot vehicle to the touch.

Step 5: Use a dedicated microfiber drying towel. Once washing the vehicle, use a dedicated microfiber drying towel to remove all standing water. This will help to reduce water spotting.

Step 6: Always follow up with annual inspections. Each Ceramic Pro coating package – including our Bronze Package, Silver Package, and Gold Package – and the new Ultimate Armor package will require an annual inspection completed by a certified Ceramic Pro auto detailing installer.

This allows them to complete a detailed decontamination wash, removing debris from the surface that can ‘clog the coatings.’ They’ll also be able to inspect the coating and apply a ceramic coating boost to improve the self-cleaning effect.
