Melbourne drivers, you need to know HOW CERAMIC COATING WORKS

When the ceramic coating is applied to the car’s body, a polymer is formed through the chemical bonding with the factory paint. Once it is coated, it can only be removed by abrasion, but not by any other chemicals. If the procedures are done properly, the ceramic protection can last longer than the car’s lifetime. The body panels of a ceramic-coated car will be smooth and abrasions-free. Ceramic coating will make your car stay cleaner for longer as it is easier to clean. Even if it does get some dirt on it, a simple swipe with a clean cloth brings the car back to its former and luscious gloss.

When it comes to applying ceramic coating to your car, it is crucial to follow the correct preparation processes to ensure the coating is applied properly. Therefore, opting for ceramic coating ensures that the protective material lasts longer on your car, providing extended durability and enhanced protection.

At ShiningCar, our meticulous approach includes a thorough examination, often incorporating at least a single-stage paint correction or, in some cases, multiple stages of machine polish before proceeding with meticulous ceramic coating applications. With our dedication to quality, you’ll receive satisfying results in our Melbourne store.


As the most popular car paint protection project in the car beauty industry. Ceramic Coating boasts in its ability to be resistant to chemical substances. In the daily use of vehicles, the main causes of paint surface aging and loss of light comes mainly from the sun’s ultra violet rays, acidic substances in rainwater, and corrosiveness in bird droppings. These factors can quickly pass through the varnish layer of the colored paint, causing irreparable damage to the surface. The hardness and density of the Ceramic Coating layer is far greater than that of the varnish itself, which can effectively prevent the penetration of chemicals and keep your car paint inside a layer of invisible shield for a long time.

Compared with the varnish layer, cars with a ceramic paint coating will be covered by the crystal-plated layer, which is flatter, a higher density, and has fewer pores. These features makes the car body more water-repellent. When the car body is being washed or subjected to rain, the water will quickly slide off the car’s surface, which can greatly relieve the acidic substances in the rain and the stains remaining on the car’s surface. When you clean your vehicle, you do not need a lot of force to wipe your car body, which also reduces the appearance of scratches and swirls.

After the ceramic coating process you no longer need to dry your car after washing, and you do not need to repeatedly wipe the car body to keep a pristine look.

The plated crystal layer of the ceramic coating thickens the varnish layer of the factory paint, and the high gloss of the plated crystal itself can even increase the gloss of the car paint from 20% to 30%. 

Compared to waxing or sealants, ceramic coating’s crystal plating has several times the durability. The correct construction process and steps can prolong the effectiveness of the crystal plating, which can last several years. With the correct maintenance methods and habits, the continuity of the ceramic coating’s crystal plating will also be greatly increased.

The longevity of ceramic paint coating can vary depending on several factors such as the quality of the coating, environmental conditions, maintenance, and usage patterns. Generally, a high-quality ceramic coating properly applied can last anywhere from one to several years. Some coatings claim durability of up to five years or more with proper care. However, it’s essential to note that regular maintenance, such as washing and occasional reapplication, can extend the lifespan of the coating and ensure optimal performance over time.

Ceramic paint coatings can be affected by lots of factors.

The skill and expertise of the person applying the ceramic coating can significantly impact its longevity. Proper surface preparation and thorough application are crucial for ensuring maximum adhesion and durability.

The climate and environmental factors in which the car is regularly exposed can affect the lifespan of the ceramic coating. Extreme weather conditions, exposure to UV radiation, and harsh chemicals can degrade the coating over time.

Regular maintenance, such as gentle washing and periodic reapplication of maintenance products, can help preserve the ceramic coating’s protective properties and extend its lifespan.

The frequency and intensity of use, as well as the type of driving conditions (e.g., city driving vs. highway driving), can impact the wear and tear on the ceramic coating. Vehicles subjected to frequent washing or abrasive cleaning methods may experience a shorter lifespan for the coating.

Not all ceramic coatings are created equal. Higher quality coatings formulated with advanced technology and premium ingredients tend to offer better durability and longevity compared to lower quality alternatives.

By considering these factors and taking proactive measures to maintain the ceramic coating, car owners can maximize its lifespan and continue to enjoy its protective benefits for an extended period.

There are three main functions of ceramic coating:
Self-Cleaning Ability (water repellent), Protection Ability and Gloss Enhancement. 

The duration of the function largely depends on your daily driving and parking environment. While ceramic coating resists heavier damage, it will also be consumed, but the basic protection can be maintained for several years. The gloss and self-cleaning ability will decrease overtime due to corrosion and sandstone resistance all year round. We highly recommend that you regularly maintain the ceramic coating layer. You can do a new activation in the store every year to ensure the duration and function of the ceramic coating.

Does the ceramic coating mean that I can clean the vehicle in any way and place the vehicle anywhere?

While ceramic coating provides a high level of protection for your vehicle’s paint, it doesn’t mean you can clean your vehicle in any way or park it anywhere without consequences. Ceramic coatings offer resistance to various contaminants such as dirt, bird droppings, and water spots, and they can make cleaning easier by providing a slick surface that repels dirt and grime.

However, it’s still important to follow proper maintenance procedures to ensure the longevity of the coating and the protection of your vehicle’s paint.

Even with a ceramic coating, it’s best to use gentle cleaning methods to avoid scratching or damaging the paint. Opt for pH-neutral car wash soaps and use a soft microfiber wash mitt or sponge to wash your vehicle.

Stay away from abrasive cleaning tools such as harsh brushes, sponges with rough surfaces, or abrasive cleaning agents. These can scratch the paint and diminish the effectiveness of the ceramic coating.

While ceramic coatings provide a level of protection against contaminants, they still require regular maintenance to ensure optimal performance. Regular washing and occasional application of maintenance products can help maintain the coating’s protective properties.

While ceramic coatings offer some level of protection against environmental elements, it’s still advisable to park your vehicle in shaded areas whenever possible to minimize exposure to UV radiation and other harsh environmental factors.

The main function of ceramic coating is to protect the factory paint of your car. 

Compared with the original varnish layer, the ceramic coating layer has higher hardness and higher density, which can effectively prevent chemical substances from entering your car paint quickly, but the ceramic coating layer itself will be damaged. 

Any erroneous methods  of washing your car, or any scratches, swirls or corrosion caused by chemicals will stay on the ceramic coating layer. Due to the ceramic coating layer’s protectino you will only need to repair the ceramic coating layer and not the your car’s paint. If your car parking environment is relatively bad, you can choose the Paint Protection Film project.


When washing a car that has been ceramic coated, we should opt for a pH-neutral car wash soap that is gentle on the ceramic coating and won’t degrade its protective properties. Avoid using harsh detergents or cleaners that can strip away the coating.

Use a soft microfiber wash mitt or sponge to gently wash the vehicle’s surface. Avoid using abrasive brushes or sponges with rough surfaces that can scratch the paint and compromise the ceramic coating.

Before washing, thoroughly rinse the vehicle with water to remove loose dirt and debris. This helps prevent scratching the paint during the washing process.

Wash the vehicle in sections, starting from the top and working your way down. This helps ensure thorough cleaning and prevents dirt and contaminants from being dragged across the paint surface.

After washing, dry the vehicle thoroughly using a soft, clean microfiber towel or a gentle blower. Avoid air-drying or letting water spots form, as they can detract from the appearance of the ceramic coating.

Whenever possible, wash your car in a shaded area or during cooler times of the day to prevent water spots and premature drying of the soap, which can leave residue on the paint surface.

Some ceramic coating manufacturers offer specific maintenance products designed to enhance and extend the life of the coating. Consider using these products as recommended by the manufacturer to maintain the coating’s effectiveness.

By following these tips and using proper car washing techniques, you can keep your ceramic coated vehicle looking its best and maintain the protective properties of the coating for years to come.


We highly recommend performing paint pretreatment before applying ceramic coating. This comprehensive process involves deep cleaning the car body, removing iron dust, glue, and asphalt residues, and most importantly, thorough degreasing. These impurities can significantly impact the longevity of your ceramic coating. Without proper pretreatment, the presence of oil layers and impurities on untreated car paint can cause the ceramic coating to degrade prematurely.

For those not planning to keep the vehicle for an extended period, we offer an express ceramic coating option at a more affordable price in Melbourne area.

IF MY CAR HAS BEEN USED FOR A LONG TIME, Can I still apply a ceramic coat

should melbourne drivers do ceramic paint protection?

Opting for ceramic paint protection can be beneficial for Melbourne drivers, especially considering the varied weather conditions and environmental factors that vehicles are exposed to in the region.

Melbourne experiences a range of weather conditions, including rain, hail, and UV radiation from the sun. Ceramic coatings provide a durable barrier against these elements, helping to prevent damage such as paint oxidation, fading, and water spots.

Melbourne’s urban environment exposes vehicles to pollutants, bird droppings, tree sap, and other contaminants that can damage paint over time. Ceramic coatings create a hydrophobic surface that repels these contaminants, making it easier to clean and maintain the vehicle’s appearance.

Ceramic coatings offer long-lasting protection, with some products claiming durability for several years. This means Melbourne drivers can enjoy enhanced paint protection and a glossy finish for an extended period without the need for frequent reapplications.

Ceramic coatings make routine car maintenance easier by reducing the adhesion of dirt and grime to the paint surface. This makes washing and cleaning the vehicle more efficient and helps maintain its appearance between washes.

Investing in ceramic paint protection can help preserve the vehicle’s exterior condition, which can potentially increase its resale value when it comes time to sell or trade-in the car.
