How many layers of ceramic coating does a car need?

A car needs 2 to 3 layers of ceramic coating. Experts suggest that it is unnecessary to go beyond 3 layers of ceramic coating. You’ll find some ceramic coating products suggest even up to four layers. It is possible for you to add additional layers as needed.

Like I said before, different vendors set different criteria for their product. I have found out that Ceramic Pro has a gold package, which suggests four layers of coating. They offer a life-time guarantee for that. But, this has not been tested, so you might have to do a little bit of research on their website here.

There is another product called Ceramic Pro 9H, which is used by a lot of car detailing services.

Can I apply ceramic coating myself?

Yes, you can apply ceramic coating on your own. But, you have to prepare the car before you apply ceramic coating. The paintwork of your car needs to be thoroughly clean and dry.

Ceramic coating puts a permanent layer on your car paintwork. Once it has been applied, it is not easy to remove it. So, for example if you have even a little amount of dirt on your car, and you apply ceramic coating on top of it; then, the results won’t be good.

If you’re an expert car detailer, then you can do it on your own. If not, then I would suggest you use a professional car detailing expert.

Is ceramic coating good for cars?

Yes, ceramic coating is good for your car because it adds an additional layer of protection to the existing paintwork of the car. Usually, 2 to 3 layers of ceramic coating are applied to the car. This will protect your car from any minor scratches and dents. It also provides a glossy, shiny and fresh look to the car.

Also, ceramic coating is permanent; it can last for few years unlike car wax. Another good thing is that, you do not have to wax your car regularly.
