Protect what you love.

Ceramic car coatings are the newest paint protection solution in Washington, DC. They help you keep your vehicle cleaner, shinier and looking brand new for years to come without the need of time-consuming tasks such as waxing or polishing.

No matter what they're called, most ceramic coatings such as Gtechniq, IGL, Ceramic Pro, CQuartz contain silicon dioxide which is more commonly known as silica and if you don't know anything about silica, we have a little secret for you...it's also found in Quartz which has a Mohs scale of hardness rating of about 7 out of 10. Now that’s hard!

It’s the incredible hardness that enables coatings to resist swirl-marks and scratches that would otherwise ruin your finish.

Every coating manufacturer including Ceramic Pro, Gtechniq, CQuartz and Opti-Coat have their own proprietary mix but essentially they mix liquid ceramic with silicon dioxide and sometimes even titanium dioxide to create a clear flexible barrier between the environment and your car's paint.

Ceramic coatings then bond chemically to your clear-coat via a covalent bond which ends up being the strongest type of bond in nature which allows coating to last for many years. Waxes on the other hand, don’t bond to your paint, they just sit on top of it which requires car owners to constantly reapply wax to keep their paint protected.

Our Installation Process

A ceramic coating lifespan and performance depends on two main factor. The first being the quality of the silica and quartz chemical used to develop the coating. The second being the quality of the installation. Since a coating bonds with your paint at a molecular level, the paint must be surgically clean and free of any contaminants that could interfere with this fragile bonding process.

Additionally, improper installation can result in permanent damages to your paint that may require wet-sanding or polishing. At Rise And Shine Detailing we employ the industry's most strict installation processes to guarantee you receive the full performance of any coating you purchase and make sure no other car on the roads looks better than yours.

Below are installation services included in all ceramic coating packages:

Chemical Paint Decontamination
Clay Bar Treatment

Paint Correction to remove swirls & Scratches*
Climate Controlled Installation Bay
Wheels, Inner-barrels & Windows Deep Clean
