In the absence of ceramic coating, the drops of water will cling to the car’s surface.

Can ceramic coating be done in 1 day?

Depending on the existing condition of your paintwork, all of this can take several days’ time. After that, the application of the coat takes just a few hours – but then we need to keep it indoors in an environmentally controlled space for 24 hours to allow it to cure properly.

Should I wax my car before applying ceramic coating?
