Ceramic Coatings are designed for...
Deep Shine / High Gloss
Protection from Water Spots
Protection from Winter Roads (Salt and Brine)
Protection from Mother Nature (Bird droppings / Bug Guts / UV)
AND the biggest reason people purchase a Ceramic Coating? - It is incredibly easy to clean!
Things a Ceramic Coating will not do?
Stop Rock Chips
Stop your angry ex that is currently wielding a key
While Ceramic Coatings are "9H" rated (hardness) - they are not bullet proof, or even really scratch proof. The best way to phrase it is that a Ceramic Coating is a Sacrificial Layer to protect your clear coat and paint. They are extremely effective against minor abrasion (like a jacket zipper rubbing against the car).
