Ceramic coatings are the most misunderstood but diverse form of paint protection in the world. Together silica and titanium dioxide are combined to create a covalent bond thats outcome is a nano-ceramic protective shield or glass-like shield over the surface to which it is applied. A ceramic coating or nano-ceramic formula offers incredible protection on paint, glass, wheels, plastics, chrome, carbon fiber, vinyl wraps, and paint protection film. Coatings provide a hydrophobic layer of protection that provides a rich, high gloss finish, ease of cleaning, UV protection, chemical resistance, anti-graffiti properties, and a finish 3-5 times stronger than your factory clear coat. That being said, not all ceramic coatings are created equal. A high-quality, professional-grade coating will properly bond to the surface of a vehicle’s paint and stop the aging process by creating a permanent layer of protection. If you want to achieve a “new car” look and keep your paint looking fresh and new for years to come, we highly suggest you consider a ceramic coating. Get in touch with HQD today.
9H Coating is a highly durable, protective coating that protects your paint from damaging contaminants by forming a permanent bond with a surface. It will not wash off or break down and can only be removed by abrasion.
Ceramic Top Coat
Top Coat keeps a surface cleaner longer, as dirt and grime will not stick to it. The super hydrophobic effect of the coating causes water, dirt and grime to roll right off. Top Coat is usually applied over 9H in the layering process, but can also be applied on its own.
XPEL Fusion Plus

Ceramic Coating Process
At HQD we are detailers. The fine details are a part of everything we do, and as such, we take a few extra steps in our preparation to coat a vehicle. Prior to any ceramic coating application your vehicle will receive:
Our decontamination wash removes oils and contamination from your paints surface.
clay bar treatment
Our clay bar treatment is a deep cleaning that pulls contaminants from the clear coat of your vehicle so that it is properly prepped for the coating.
perform selected paint correction package
The next step is correcting the paint on your vehicle if needed. Paint correction will eliminate defects and bring out the utmost clarity and brilliance of your paint prior to your coating application.
A solvent bath is the final cleaning step before the coating application and will remove any remaining oils and residues.
