Advantages of a Ceramic Coating
Ceramic Coatings is the superior paint protection technology compared to Waxes and Sealants simply due to longevity & durability.
- pH resistance so it cannot be simply washed off!
- UV Resistance – preserves colour intensity and prevents paint failure
- Makes your car easier to clean and if dirt doesnt sit, it prevents stains and paint failure
- Enhances reflectivity and leaves a high gloss finish
- Improves scratch resistance from marring and swirls
- Anti Graffiti
- Protection against harmful weather conditions and corrosion.
However, Coatings will not protect your car from stone chips, door dings, paint chipping from a deep and sharp impact or deep scratches like from vandalism. If that is what you seek, look at Paint Protection Film or PPF.
Video explaining Ceramic Coatings
How much is a Coating?
A coating application requires Preparation, which is different for each vehicle i.e. “new” vs “2 years old”, and your choice of Ceramic Coating, which is the easy part as that can be priced flat.
So the pricing shown here is only the application of coatings to the paintwork of the car and NOT preparation.
All pricing quoted is for up to a sedan sized vehicles. Larger vehicles I would have to quote on.
What is Preparation?
Preparation is washing, decontamination (example: clay and or iron remover) and whatever polishing is required. It’s different for every car and owner why its not given as one price with a coating.
The level of Preparation is determined by the condition of your car, what you want it to look like and your budget.
We can assist in deciding your level of preparation by physically inspecting your vehicle and polishing out and area so you can see the what looks good to you.
The Preparation is chosen from one of our Paint Correction packages or if your car does not require polishing a “minimum preparation” of R500 would be applicable. Minimum preparation covers a wash and chemical decontamination i.e. iron, tar, bugs etc.
Why do you offer so many coatings?
I want to offer the best Ceramic Coatings available in one place!
I have experience applying a wide variety of different brands other than the selection offered here. If you want something in specific not listed here contact me to arrange!
We can also coat wheels, exterior glass and plastics as well as interior surfaces such as leather, vinyl, carpet and upholstery, interior plastics and alacantara / suede
What coating do you recommend?
Here’s the thing, Ceramic coatings, like shoes, has different fashion, brands, sizes, colours and applications etc. Like a particular shoe attracts your attention and may or may not suit your foot, so is coatings…
The cost of a Ceramic coating formulas is directly proportional to their advancement in features, ceramic concentration, hardness and thickness. An entry level coating may give you 0.5 microns while a top of the line coating may give you up to 10 microns of film thickness. Keep in perspective a human hair is from 100 microns. I therefore recommend choosing the best you can afford when it comes to coatings!
Call me, lets chat so I can get to know you and your needs and expectations and I’ll make you a recommendation.
NANO PAINT PROTECT
The philosophy of SONAX Nano Paint Protect is Practical Perfection & Protection.
SONAX Nano Paint Protect is a Professional grade formula containing a glass-like layer of silicate nanoparticles (SIO2) providing clear coat protection against the harmful effects of the environment, pollution, bird droppings and insects. It also contains fluorocarbon nanoparticles to provide the optimal hydrophobic effect (water repellancy) which will help preserve your car for a long time.
Prominently used in Asia, where the environment is hot and humid, as well as the extreme pollution. Applying a long lived coating is of no benefit as it would need to be redone frequently.
If you also consider that life happens, accidents, scrapes, deep scratches, door dings etc – why spend thousands and you have to start from scratch!
Durability: 1 year+
- Single coat R1000 excluding preperation
- Double coat R1500 excluding preparation
- Redo after 1 year 20% discount

Founded by quantum physicist Drew Gill in 2001, GTECHNIQ is a pioneering and innovative force in total vehicle surface protection.
From the beginning, their concept of Smart Surface Science, which included not just paintwork, but other surfaces such as Leather, Fabric, Plastics etc
Their BIOCOTE technology, which is an antimicrobial technology, has been a feature of their interior product range for years. With the Corona Virus COVID-19 it is now an essential if not critical advantage. Further proof that GTECHNIQ is a visionary company.
A feature of GTECHNIQ paint coatings is their sheer hardness in comparison to competing coatings on the market. When it comes to adding gloss, resisting swirls, contaminant and dirt repellency, Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra and Serum Light are the pinnacle in paint protection.
EXO delivers a hard film that makes water-spots easy to remove, offers great resistance to all wash chemicals (i.e. pH resistance) and can help withstand micro-marring and swirls. It produces a high-gloss, warm-looking, extreme hydrophobic finish.
It can be applied over CSL and CSU as a top coat
Durability: Up to 2 years
Pricing: From R2500 excluding preparation
Crystal Serum Light
Crystal Serum Light ( CSL) offers 80% of Crystal Serum Ultra’s performance.
CSL forms an ultra-durable, high-gloss, slick to the touch, chemically bonding inorganic layer of 9h optically clear ceramic. Once applied, gloss levels will remain in the upper 90th percentile for significantly longer when compared to traditional paint protection products and cleaning your car will be a breeze!
The high-density ceramic layer is resistant to chemicals ranging from pH2 – pH12. This characteristic also makes bonded contaminants such as tree sap, tar, and hard water spots, easy to remove.
Unlike mainstream wax and organic polymer coatings, CSU and CSL can resist much higher and lower temperatures. They resist temperatures as low as -40o to as high as +250°c.
Durability: 3 to 5 years
- From R3500 for CSL excluding preperation
- Add EXO as top coat R2000
Crystal Serum Ultra
Crystal Serum Ultra (CSU) is the best paint protection you can get, it keeps your car looking glossy and new, prolonging the life of your paintworks perfect finish.
Key to CSU’s performance gain is the introduction of a revolutionary new 7nm nanoparticle alongside an existing 20nm nanoparticle, and increasing the ratio of crosslinkers which reinforce and thicken the top layer of the coating.
The hard 10h top and softer 7h base layer offer improved swirl resistance over regular 9h paint protection coatings. Compared to standard ceramic paint coatings, CSU can withstand even the strongest wash chemicals and bird droppings.
An additional benefit from having a flexible base layer and hard top layer is that CSU is very resistant to extreme heat changes, even from -40 degrees Celsius to +250 degrees Celsius.
CSU can be applied either as a stand-alone paint protection product, or for the best hydrophobic performance, it can be over coated with Gtechniq EXO
Durability: 7 Year
- From R5500 for CSU excluding preparation
- Add EXO as top coat R2000
