There is a ton of buzz and marketing hype around the term ceramic coating, but what really are they? In essence a ceramic coating is simply a synthetic polymer based compound that binds to your vehicles paint to form a hardened layer of protection. Ceramics usually measure a hardness rating of 9H which is a significant improvement over your factory 2H-4H hardness rating. In addition to being harder than your factory clear coat they also have a more slick surface which is where they get their self cleaning and water repelling properties from.
System X Accredited Installation Center
In order to become System X accredited we first had to prove our skills in the entirety of the coating process then be tested on our knowledge of coatings and the other chemicals and processes we use. Then we made a commitment to both the manufacture and our customers that no work would leave until it has been completed to only the highest standard. This is why we have our satisfaction guarantee, to ensure you don't pay until you are completely happy with the workmanship provided.
The System X products our team uses:

Detail and Decontaminate
The entire process starts with an exterior detail to remove loose dirt and debris. This is followed by an iron remover and clay-bar to remove embedded contamination.
Once the surface has been completely cleaned we perform the paint correction of choice to remove swirls and imperfections and ensure a glossy finish is achieved.
Inspect and Prep Paint
Now that the surface has been corrected we use special color match lights to ensure quality and remove all residue with a panel preparation solution to ensure a proper bond.
Apply Coating and Re-Inspect
At this stage we apply the coating and inspect both with natural lighting and color match lights to ensure no high spots are left so the vehicle is 100% ready for delivery.
Is a Paint Correction Necessary For Ceramic Coating?
Even when you roll your new car off the showroom floor its likely to be riddled with imperfections. You may be wondering why and the short answer is; dealerships are in the car business to make money and turn vehicles around quickly, not ensure they are perfect upon delivery. Whether your car is 5 days old or 5 years old a paint correction is a necessary part of the process.
Additionally we here at A to Z Auto Detail and Ceramic Coatings pride ourselves on the quality of work we do. In chasing that quality we can not in good faith leave a vehicles paint untouched and seal in the imperfections either permanently or semi-permanently.
Lastly, coatings leave a highly glossy layer. Due to the intensity of the gloss they leave ceramic coatings applied over imperfections would only serve to amplify those imperfections making them even more of an eye sore once the coating has been applied. In short, yes a paint correction is absolutely necessary when applying a long-term paint protection like ceramic coatings.
