Unleash The Invisible Shield Of XPEL Ceramic Coating

Picture this: you pull out of the dealership in your brand new car, its paint gleaming like a mirror, the sun’s reflection blinding your fellow commuters. When you’re in your vehicle for 330 hours a year, you want your car to be a reflection of your personality and style. But that showroom shine can’t last forever. Every time you take your car out, it faces an assault from the elements and the road. The sun’s relentless UV rays beat down, harsh winds and toxic rains whip up dust, debris, and contaminants, and bird droppings become a constant threat.

The result? Faded paint, a dull finish, and a growing network of scratches. It’s enough to make any car lover wince.

But what if there was a quick and affordable way to shield your car’s beauty and preserve that showroom shine for years to come? Enter XPEL ceramic coating, a revolutionary technology that acts like an invisible suit of armor for your car’s paintwork.

The Benefits of Ceramic Coating

Ceramic coating offers a variety of benefits for your car’s exterior. A liquid polymer applied by hand, it chemically bonds with the paint to create a protective layer. This layer acts as a shield against environmental threats. Bird droppings, sap, and road grime bead up on the surface due to the coating’s hydrophobic properties, making them easier to remove without scratching the paint. The ceramic layer can also protect your car’s paint from acid rain, industrial pollution, and other harsh chemicals that can cause fading and oxidation over time. Additionally, it helps block harmful UV rays from the sun, which can damage the paint and make it lose its shine.

Ceramic coating not only protects your car, but it can also make it easier to wash. The hydrophobic surface repels water and dirt, reducing the amount that sticks to the paint. This means you’ll wash your car less often and spend less time scrubbing to remove dirt and grime. Washing your car becomes a simple process of rinsing off the contaminants, thanks to the ceramic coating.

Where Can Ceramic Coating Be Applied?

We’ve explored the impressive protective benefits of ceramic coating, but where exactly on your car can coating be applied? XPEL’s Fusion Plus Ceramic Coating is a versatile product, offering its advantages throughout your vehicle. Let’s delve into the specific areas where XPEL ceramic coating can work its magic.

Ceramic Coating vs PPF

Ceramic coating is for customers looking for simple and affordable protection along with increased shine, gloss, and depth of color, along with great hydrophobic and self-cleaning properties.

PPF is for customers who want an added layer of protection against rock chips and scratches.

Sealing PPF onto a vehicle with a coat of ceramic coating is extremely common. This offers the best-case scenario.

By combining ceramic coating with PPF, you get the best of both worlds:


XPEL ceramic coating offers an easy solution for protecting your vehicle’s investment and preserving its showroom shine. From its exceptional resistance against environmental hazards to its hydrophobic properties that make washing a breeze, XPEL ceramic coating provides a level of protection and ease of maintenance that’s unmatched by traditional waxes and sealants.
