▰ Simple & Comprehensive Protection
Our CERAMIC COATING SERVICES
A ceramic coating is the highest chemical grade form of protection and gloss for your vehicle. A true coating chemically bonds to your paint and leaves a hardened and hydrophobic layer to your surface that becomes semi-permanent.
Years of Gloss & Easy Maintenance
What are the benefits to having a ceramic or graphene coating on your car?
It is a chemical polymer solution that is silica (SiO2) based. The solution is applied to the exterior of a vehicle to protect the vehicle from paint damage. The solution is applied by hand and offers an additional layer of hydrophobic protection. It is an extremely strong and durable coating. The coating is well-known for creating protection that lasts several years.

What is the process of having your vehicle graphene coated? AFTER THIS PROCESS YOUR VEHICLE WILL SHINE LIKE THESE CARS BELOW FOR YEARS!
Thorough inspection of the interior and exterior, which will assist in communicating expectations of service. Notations of various conditions, damages, etc are made. This inspection is emailed to you typically within an hour to hour and half of the service beginning.
1. WASHING & DECONTAMINATING - The vehicle is washed thoroughly from top to bottom. This process takes anywhere from 45 to 75 minutes. The vehicle is then washed with a clay towel to remove surface contaminants. This is followed by a chemical treatment to remove iron (red specks), mineral deposits, tar, and any wax or grease. This process takes anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes.
2. DEFECT REMOVAL & POLISHING - Machine polishing is done to ensure the car's paint is in great condition to have the ceramic or graphene coating installed. This process is open ended and can take as little as two hours, and as long as, multiple days.
3. SECOND WASH & SURFACE PREPARATION - The vehicle is washed again and is cleaned of all polishes. This takes about 45 to 75 minutes.
4. PANEL-BY-PANEL COATING APPLICATION - The ceramic or graphene coating is then installed to all applicable areas of the vehicle. This can take anywhere from one to four hours.

Why SPS Coatings?
SPS Coatings was the first to develop a graphene coating that offers more than 50% reduction in water spotting potential and cleanliness when compared to traditional ceramic coatings.
Graphene forms a bond for up to five years, when maintained properly. The depth graphene provides is perfect for getting lost in your vehicle’s shimmer. Environmental damages are reduced greatly due to this coating’s unique structure. Now is the time to treat your ride to the highest quality coating in the world.
Up-front cost. While a coating may provide many benefits, the up-front cost is prohibitive to some. However, when calculating a prospective clients time, energy, product expense, or the cost of having a detailer wax or seal a vehicle 2-4x per year, the cost of a ceramic coating can be significantly less over the life of a vehicle.
Ceramic Coatings, like any other surface on a car, are susceptible to water spotting from hard minerals from many water sources. Only washing the vehicle in the shade, early mornings, or late in the evenings in hot climates helps. Using good quality microfiber towels, a leaf blower or air compressor to help dry the vehicle quickly can help as well. Water spotting can be removed safely from most coatings but are not covered under any known coating warranty or guarantee as they are preventable.
Ceramic coatings can still be scratched and chipped. While some coatings do provide a measurable degree of hardness vs. factory clear coat, no coating is scratch or chip proof. This is a common misconception that is regularly spread by many dealerships and even some detailers looking to make a quick sale. Paint protection film will aid in preventing chips, and Flawless Coating and Detailing offers paint protection film installation as well.
The simplest answer to this question is to wash it, dry it completely, and take it to your detailer as needed for decontamination or maintenance. Maintenance from a detailer may consistent of high PH washing to deep clean the coating, chemical decontamination with iron removal chemicals, clay bar treatment, maintenance products meant to reinvigorate or increase slickness, or even spot polishing and recoating of small sections in case of damage. Flawless Coating and Detailing provides maintenance services to ensure your ceramic coated vehicle is as fresh as the day it was ceramic coated.
In our years of experience dealing with these situations we have found that with full coverage insurance the cost of coating re-application is covered under most policies. Make sure to inform your detailer as soon as possible after an accident occur so he or she can provide an estimate for re-coating the damaged sections of vehicle so that you can submit the information to your insurance company.
Yes. Any quality detailer will see these steps as the foundation necessary for a quality ceramic coating application. Any detailer or dealership that does not follow these steps prior to applying a ceramic coating are likely improperly applying the coating. Even for a brand-new vehicle “off the truck” a thorough wash, clay bar treatment, and light polishing are the absolute minimum before coating application. Often times much more polishing and compounding is needed even on a brand-new vehicle to make sure the surface is as flawless as possible before the ceramic coating is applied. Flawless Coating and Detailing uses new tools, such as clay and polishing pads with every ceramic coating service.
Many factors affect the pricing of a ceramic coating, including but not limited to:
The experience, knowledge, and skills of the detailer applying the coating.
The type of coating being applied, all products are different.
The level of preparation needed prior to applying the coating. Some dealerships or detailers will skip steps altogether in order to offer a lower price.
The size, color, and manufacturer of the vehicle can also affect pricing. Some vehicles have much softer clear coats that are harder to prepare for coating application than others.
We recommend having any paint protection film products applied to your vehicle prior to having the ceramic coating applied. This way you have the protective properties of the film, with the added hydrophobic, self-cleaning, and UV protectant abilities of the ceramic coating. Most ceramic coatings can be applied to paint protection film, but ask the detailer applying your ceramic coating prior to your appointment about any questions you may have about film.
The compounds found in both ceramic and graphene coatings provide substantially superior protection for your vehicle as opposed to traditional waxes and sealants. The nanotechnology found in these coatings allows the coating to stick to the surface of the vehicle, its wheels, trim and windows on a molecular level.
These coatings can last for several years when properly taken care of. Graphene, especially, has a high sleek factor. It is comparable to some of the top coatings and sealants on the market today.
Apart from weather damage protection, chemical and UV ray protection, these coatings will also protect your vehicle against bird droppings, tree sap, insects and water spots. These coatings are less susceptible to cracking and chipping, are anti-static, have a high water contact level, offer a high sleek and candy-like gloss, protect from scratches and swirl marks, and reduce the need for frequent car washes.
Experienced, fully trained and knowledgeable specialists at Flawless Coating and Detailing determine which type of coating is best for your vehicle. After your vehicle has been detailed, an associate will walk you through the correct method of caring for your vehicle in order to prolong the effects of the chosen coating for as long as possible.
In addition, you will receive a complimentary kit that includes brochures and information on how to take care of your ceramic or graphene-coated vehicle.
