Should I wax my car before applying ceramic coating?

No you should not wax your car before applying ceramic coating. Because wax will prevent ceramic coating to properly bond to your car’s paintwork. For getting best results, car detailing experts suggest that the painted surface of your car is residue-free.

So, a good car detailing expert will thoroughly wash your car with a wax free soap, and make it as clean as possible. The goal is to remove all residue on the car’s surface. If residue remains on the body of the car, it will act as a barrier between your ceramic coating and paintwork, preventing a strong bond and proper adhesion.
