How Long Should Ceramic Paint Protection Last?

Paint Protection Longevity is Key to Getting Your Money’s Worth

Cilajet’s Aviation Grade ceramic coatings are designed to enhance protection, ensure better resistance to the elements, and provide long-lasting protection and durability.

But how long should you expect these coatings to last?

Lifespan depends on many factors, including the type of coating, what wears it down, and how well you maintain it. In most cases, automotive grade ceramic coatings only offer short-term physical protection (only up to 12-24 months). However, Cilajet ceramic coatings are rated at 5+ years in a single application and can last as long as a decade if cared for properly.

Let’s explore how you can get the longest lifespan from your Cilajet Aviation Grade ceramic coatings.

In this post we will explore:

How to Extend the Life of Your Ceramic Coating

There are a few things you can do to expand the life of your ceramic coating.

First, wash it with clean water, but don’t over-wash it. Use only approved aftercare products that are safe for ceramic coatings. Avoid using harsh chemicals on the vehicle, such as hydrofluoric acid and chlorine bleach, and use proper cleaning methods.

Also, avoid driving in harsh weather conditions. One of the main reasons to get a ceramic coating is to protect your vehicle’s paint from the elements with something that is stronger against the elements than the paint. When you’re not driving, keep your car under shelter for added protection.

When Is It Time to Replace Your Car Coating?

Eventually, ceramic coats will need to be replaced. Here are some signs to know when it’s time:

Loss of Shine

Ceramic coatings will dull over time due to exposure to the factors listed above. Losing the car’s shine is a sign your ceramic coating is becoming less effective.

Visible chaulking

Once the top layer of the coating starts to degrade, it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the coating begins to fail as well. Allowing the coating to continue to deteriorate will only lead to more damage to your car’s paint.

Loss of Hydrophobic Effect

The hydrophobic effect is what makes water bead up and roll off the surface of the coating.

Light Swirls or Marring in the Paint

Swirls are caused by washing your car with a dirty sponge or using harsh cleaning chemicals. As the coating gets worn or damaged, swirls and marring become easier to spot.
