What To Use It For:
What Is Ceramic Coating?
A ceramic coating is a crystallising polymer liquid that chemically bonds to paint, glass and wheels. It bonds to create a fine layer of crystal over the surface that will ultimately fight off outside elements and such that will degrade a vehicle's finish. Due to the crystal-like nature, a ceramic coating will also produce a nice gloss of its own league. In order to prepare for coating, the surface should be primed, e.g. decontamination and a buff.
OP888 can resist the abrasion of a 9H pencil and provides high scratch-resistance. OP888 will provide you with high scratch resistance but note that this will not magically protect your car forever nor will it completely prevent scratches etc. If you are looking for something that will shield your paint from scratches, UV and stone chips, research paint protection film (PPF)
How Long Will It Last For?
Most ceramic coatings will last three to five years and it is recommended that you apply two coats to get the most out of the three to five years. There are a few factors into prolonging or shortening the life of a coating that one should note. The first two factors include how well you primed the surface and also how well you applied the coating. The last factor is maintaining it. OPTiX offers a range of products such as #NINE, Final Boost or Nano Slick, that will add layers over your ceramic coating to protect it further. Washing the car regularly, but not too frequently will also help prolong the life.

Maintaining a ceramic coating on your car is important to ensure that it continues to provide long-lasting protection and maintain its glossy finish. Here are some tips for ceramic coating maintenance for cars:
Regularly wash your car: Dirt, dust, and other contaminants can accumulate on the surface of the coating over time and reduce its effectiveness. Wash your car at least once a week using a pH-neutral car shampoo like OPTiX Shampoo and a microfiber wash mitt to avoid scratching the coating.
Avoid using abrasive products: Do not use harsh chemicals, abrasive sponges, or rough towels to clean your car's surface, as they can damage the coating. Instead, use a soft microfiber cloth or foam applicator pad for cleaning and drying. Please focus on a soft touch rather than rubbing.
Use a ceramic coating booster: Applying a ceramic coating booster periodically can help revitalize the coating's hydrophobic properties and maintain its glossiness. Try OPTiX Final Boost :)
Remove bird droppings and tree sap immediately: These substances can be corrosive and damage the coating if not cleaned within minutes. Clean them off as soon as possible using a gentle solution.
Avoid parking under direct sunlight: Prolonged exposure to UV rays can cause the coating to degrade faster, so it's best to park your car in a shaded area or use a car cover.
By following these maintenance tips, you can keep your ceramic coating in top condition and ensure long-lasting protection for your car's paint and finish.
When it comes to ceramic coatings, you can pay a car detailer (ideally OPTiX certified detailers) to apply the coat for you. Or you purchase this bottle and apply it yourself.
