Ceramic Coating

Ceramic coating, also called nano-coating, is a liquid polymer which bonds to the surface of your car, creating a long-term protective layer on top of your paint. It is hard, thick, and transparent, similar to the appearance of glass, that semi-permanently attaches to your car’s paint.

Protecting Your Cars Paint

Gtechniq has a full range of Ceramic coatings that will meet your needs and help protect against sun damage and oxidation. Unlike traditional waxes and sealants, our coatings last for years of protection. Often measured in years, we have coatings that last from one year to 9 years. An often-overlooked benefit of ceramic coating your car is the way it repels dirt and other substances. A ceramic coating makes your car’s surface very smooth, filling in the imperfections of the clear coat beneath it, making it difficult for dirt to stick to the surface. This means you won’t have to wash your car as frequently. Also making your car easier to clean while maintaining a deep, glossy appearance.

How It Works

Car ceramic coating chemically bonds with the paint, creating a long-lasting protective layer. A ceramic coating protects the clear coat layer beneath it. The clear coat layer protects the color layer of your car, but your clear coat can become damaged and scratched pretty easily. Even light abrasion with the clear coat can cause visible damage, therefore having a protective layer on top of it is very important. Ceramic coatings protect against UV rays from the sun. Without protection, UV rays can eat away at your car’s paint, causing oxidation and fade.

Gtechniq 9 Year Coating

Crystal Serum Ultra is the best paint protection you can get, it keeps your car looking glossy and new, prolonging the life of your paintworks perfect finish.

Key to Crystal Serum Ultras performance gain is the introduction of a revolutionary new 7nm nanoparticle alongside an existing 20nm nanoparticle and increasing the ratio of crosslinkers which reinforce and thicken the top layer of the coating. The hard 10h top and softer 7h base layer offer improved swirl resistance over regular 9h paint protection coatings. Compared to standard ceramic paint coatings, Crystal Serum Ultra can withstand even the strongest wash chemicals and bird droppings.

An additional benefit from having a flexible base layer and the hard top layer is that Crystal Serum Ultra is very resistant to extreme heat changes, even from -40 degrees Celsius to +250 degrees Celsius. Crystal Serum Ultra can be applied either as a stand-alone paint protection product or for the best hydrophobic performance, it can be over coated with Gtechniq ExoV5 or C2.

I recently visited this auto detail shop to get a ceramic coat applied to my brand new Crosstrek. John, the owner, is an awesome person who took the time to educate me on maintaining the coating. His diverse pricing options cater to various budgets. The results were outstanding; despite daily rain, the coating is holding up beautifully. This shop is now my go-to for all car needs. Thank you, John, for the exceptional service!

I recently took my black, GMC AT-4 HD truck to John to have ceramic coating. The truck looks amazing, actually better than when it was brand new. The truck looks like a black mirror. I could not be happier with the job John did and the service and care he puts into every job he does.

As a business owner myself, I am very cautious about whom I leave reviews for… as I would expect my customers to be. Oly Recon is hands down the best ‘detail’ shop I’ve ever used… although it’s much more than a detail. Completely reconditioned my old Land Rover… took a 20 year old paint job and made it darn near new. The ceramic coating is absolutely phenomenal. Today I took my wife’s Cadillac in for its quarterly detail and ceramic touch up. Looks better than the day we bought it. I won’t say it’s cheap!… but its absolutely fair!… And if you care about your rig, this is the spot. He’s taken care of all our rigs for 3+ years now. Worth every penny!

We are very happy with the work John did. Didn't know what to expect with the ceramic coating on our Mustang but we just picked it up this evening and were blown away with the quality of his work and attention to detail. Would definitely recommend him to anybody that wants a first class professional to work on their baby. Awesome job.

I highly recommend John and Olympia Auto Recon for your vehicle detailing. I called him while price shopping for ceramic coating and protection for my new BMW. He spent time with me explaining the processes available and the pros and cons to ceramic coating and PPF. His prices were competitive with other establishments, and well below the basic services the dealership was offering. I ended up deciding on a 9 year Ceramic coating, window and wheel coating, and he referred me to Tint Fresh LLC(also highly recommended ) for PPF on the front of my car as well. When I took it in for the detailing, he cleaned and checked for paint correction, took it to Tint Fresh for the PPF, then completed the ceramic coating process. When we picked it up he gave us many tips on how to wash and keep the coating looking pristine. The car looks beautiful, and it was wonderful to work with John and his crew.
