What Does a Ceramic Coating Do?
There is a good reason why their popularity is growing a lot. Choosing a Gyeon certified detailer to install a ceramic coating is much better than what the dealership offer you in terms of paint protection.
Otherwise known as beading.
An important feature of a GYEON Ceramic Coating is that it is hydrophobic. This basically means that water will be repelled instantaneously. When your car is ceramic coated, the incredible hydrophobic effect of the coating will cause water to bead up and roll of the surface along with most dirt, grime, or mud (as it has all been unable to bond to your vehicle’s paint). When people ask “what is ceramic coating” this is often the first demonstration.

Mud & Dirt Repellent
Ceramic paint coating works much harder at protecting the surface of your vehicle than an ordinary paint job.
Rain and water bead as opposed to accumulating on the surface. Snow and ice does not stick to the surface. And mud as demonstrated above just slides off.
Protection from UV Damage / Oxidisation
Vehicles often exposed to the sun will start seeing the paint fade and look dull. This is caused by the sun’s ultraviolet sun rays, which causes oxidation to the car’s paint. By adding a layer of Ceramic Coating to your paint, you can dramatically reduce the oxidisation.
Ceramic coatings works much harder at protecting the surface of your vehicle than an ordinary paint job. The new coating bonds with the molecular structure of your car’s paint and can’t be dislodged by vibrations or external force, meaning it lasts years not months.
As mentioned earlier in the article, think of it as an added layer of skin on top of your paint. How long does ceramic car coating last?

A lot of misconceptions about what the protection does not cover. Some of it might be logical, but never the less, let’s start off by saying this.
Does Not Make Car Bulletproof
Even the best ceramic coating does not make your car bulletproof. And they’re not some magic product that will solve all potential hazards your surface is exposed to. It will not stop stone chips or deep scratches.
