How Are Ceramic Coatings Installed?

Installing a ceramic coating is an extremely tedious process. Below is a breakdown of how ceramic coatings are installed.

  • 100% Hand Car Wash
    Using PH neutral soap and a clean wash mitt and safe towel to dry.
  • Paint Decontamination
    Chemical decontamination with iron removers followed by a clay bar treatment to mechanically decontaminate the paint.
  • Labor Intensive Machine Paint Correction
    We must make your car’s paint as close to perfect as possible so that we don’t seal those defects under the coating.
  • Surface Cleansing Coating Prep
    We apply an alcohol-based cleansing solution followed by a solvent-based wax and grease remover to give the coating a proper surface to bond too. Unlike wax, coatings chemically bond to your clear coat so paint prep is very important!
  • Tedious Panel by Panel Installation
    We apply the coating panel-by-panel with an applicator and special soft towels to prevent further damage. Area’s like grills, wheels, suspension components and brakes are applied by spraying with an airbrush to ensure full coverage of all parts.


A ceramic coating bonds to your clear coat and a wax does not. A wax also diminishes with heat and chemicals ceramic coatings are chemically and UV resistant.

The installation of a ceramic coating can take anywhere from 6-15 hours depending on the condition of your vehicles paint since most of the time is spent in paint correction pre-install.

Ceramic coatings last anywhere from 2-5+ years depending on the formula you choose.

What Is Ceramic Coating

Ceramic coating adds new protection to your vehicle and helps maintain a smoother look with relatively little maintenance. The coating results by making vehicles more resistant to corrosion and easier to clean, at Streamline Auto Care we use Bombshell Coatings which were created and formulated by our owner Shawn. 

Advantages of Ceramic Coatings

A ceramic coating creates a hydrophobic layer repelling water and dirt. Stop moisture and chemicals from damaging paint, dirt road surfaces, bird droppings and any contaminants. With a quick  pressure rinse, they will just slide off with ease. For longer protection car owners choose ceramic coatings over other available protection methods. The coating is essentially a sacrificial shell that defends your car from water stain grime and other things from harming the surface of the paint.

Maximizing Your Ceramic Coating

Ceramic coating adheres to and bonds to automotive paint and can not be removed or re-applied easily. This process is similar to applying stain to a piece of wood. Ceramic coatings offer unparalleled protection but your car will not soon become an impenetrable barrier. You should maintain a ceramic coating with frequent brushless hand washes and drying aid during the drying process for a swirl free finish.
