In the ever-evolving world of automotive care, protecting your vehicle’s paintwork and appearance is paramount. While you may try to be as careful with your car as possible, keeping it pristine without keeping it in a sealed garage for the rest of its life will be impossible. Thankfully, with the advent of ceramic coatings, car enthusiasts and everyday drivers alike have found a powerful ally against the elements and the wear of time. Ceramic coatings give your car an outstanding shine and help preserve its exterior. They are a wonderful addition to any vehicle.

But not all ceramic coatings are created equal, and so many people want to know what the best ceramic coating is. In 2024, Ceramic Pro has once again raised the bar without groundbreaking Ceramic Pro ION, utilizing Ion Exchange technology. We’ll walk you through the benefits of ceramic coating and explain why our ION product line is the best for your needs.

What is a Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic Coating is a liquid polymer, typically made of silicon dioxide, that acts as a layer of protection for your paint. Instead of simply sitting on top of your existing finish, ceramic coatings go further and chemically bond to your paint. This allows the coating to stay on your paint for a significant amount of time, protecting it for longer.

In addition to the functional aspect, ceramic coatings also help give your car a stunning glossy shine and a deeper, more vibrant look to your paint color. Some even say their cars look even better than when they were brand new.

Benefits of Ceramic Coating on Paint Protection Film


Ceramic coatings protect your car’s paint from various environmental hazards, such as debris, oils, dirt, and other contaminants. Thanks to its long lifespan, you can enjoy this protection for many years without reapplication.

UV Protection

. UV rays are highly damaging to just about anything they touch. From our skin, to plastics, to paint, enough exposure to UV rays will cause materials to oxidize and in the case of your paint, fade. Thankfully, ceramic coatings also provide a layer of UV protection, further protecting your car’s appearance from harmful sunlight.

Ease of Cleaning

One of the mechanisms that allow the best ceramic coatings to protect your car from dirt and debris is its hydrophobic nature. This will enable it to repel liquids at an incredible rate, making it very hard to stick to the surface. Even if someone does manage to latch on, a quick rinse with water will usually make quick work of any stubborn stains, making cleaning your car a breeze.

Improved Looks

As mentioned before, ceramic coatings give a glossy look that you won’t even find from the factory. This helps bring out the true character of your paint and makes it stand out more.

The Best Ceramic Coating – Ceramic Pro ION

We have further evolved our best-in-class coating with the new Ceramic Pro ION. Not only does it retain all the benefits of the original Ceramic Pro 9H, but it improves upon basically every aspect of the coating. The secret is in the name, Ceramic Pro ION makes use of ION Exchange Technology.

The two-part system involves larger ions from a second layer, replacing the ions found in the first layer. The result is a much less space between molecules and a stronger chemical bond overall. A similar technique is used in modern smartphone screen manufacturing to make them as shatterproof as possible. We are proud to be the first in the industry to bring this technology to the forefront.

But what does it mean for you? The ION Exchange technology brings with it a bunch of benefits that help it outperform other ceramic coatings. It allows a thick coating layer to exist without being brittle, maintaining its strength. This increased thickness makes the coating much more resistant to abrasions, a weak spot for many traditional ceramic coatings, which are thinner and less dense.

The hardness of this coating goes even beyond what the 9H coating offers, making it even harder for any small rocks to puncture the coating and hit your paint. Coupled with even better hydrophobicity, the Ceramic Pro ION is the best ceramic coating. It provides the most advanced and comprehensive protection for your car.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ceramic Coatings

Why Would I Choose a Ceramic Coating Over a Wax?

For many decades now, car wax has been seen as the definitive way to protect your paint and give it the shine they want. While waxing a car is great, it does not do as good of a job as ceramic coating your car.

For starters, ceramic coatings are far more durable than car wax. While ceramic coatings bond to the vehicle’s paint, wax will simply stay on top of the paint. You can still expect wax to protect your car anywhere from three to six months, but it’s a tough sell compared to the multi-year protection you get from the best ceramic coatings.

How Long Does Ceramic Coating Last?

The lifespan of a ceramic coating can vary, depending on factors such as the quality of the product, the environment, and maintenance. Generally, high-quality ceramic coatings can last anywhere from two to five years, sometimes even longer, with proper care and maintenance.

For Ceramic Pro ION, we are confident in our product’s longevity. That’s why we offer either a seven-year or a lifetime warranty on our coatings, depending on which one of our packages you choose when applying the coating at one of our authorized dealers.
