Everything You Need to Know About Paint Coatings!


Photo by Zach McGovern of Attention To Detailing Peoria.

Coatings have been becoming extremely popular the past couple of years. Detailers and weekend warriors have been switching over from waxes and sealants to see what all the buzz is about and from we can see, coatings are here to stay! The look may be different than what you expect to see from a wax or sealant, however there is something about seeing your car in what looks like a coat of glass that just really stands out. Each year new versions come out and coatings just seem to be getting better and better.

If you are looking for the deepest, wettest look out there, we here at Detailed Image would highly recommend checking out a coating (i.e. 22ple, Gtechniq, CarPro, etc.). These semi-permanent coatings take more effort and time to apply, but the results are well worth it. They will provide an amazing level of gloss and shine, while protecting your paint for up to 24 months! Like mentioned above, your car looks like it has been coated entirely in glass! Better yet, you can top these coatings (i.e. 22ple VS1 Final Coat, CarPro Reload Spray Sealant, etc.) to add more depth, gloss, and protection to the paint!

As the popularity of coatings grow our Ask-a-Pro detailers have been hard at work testing and using these coatings in their detailing routines. Below are some great articles they have written to help guide you through the process of applying and taking care of a coating:We also have some other great product reviews and detailing articles that contain popular coating products. Take a look at these below:We hope this coating information is helpful and if you ever have any questions regarding coatings or any other products, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Great stuff Greg! I am pretty fearless when it comes to correction but, I have such a mental block about coatings its ridiculous. I'm sure I will screw it up

Re: Everything You Need to Know About Paint Coatings!

Coatings are so easy to use. I've used 22ple and Gtechniq c1/exo. My next one to try is Kamikaze Myabi topped with Kamikaze Infinity wax(glass coating/wax combo). It's pretty hard to mess them up, just need the right light to make sure you have it all removed. On my cars I won't go back to traditional wax and sealer, unless a garage queen then I'll use Esoteric Signture wax. My Bernese mountain dog jumped up on the side of my charger, didn't scratch a bit, and the marks on the coating wiped off.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit I have never heard of these "coatings", but I'll look into them. The ability to protect against scratches intrigues me.

Re: Everything You Need to Know About Paint Coatings!

Has anyone tried CilaJet?
I paid an extra 650 at the dealer for this application and it is supposed to be no wax for 5 years.
I've washed with water only and thoroughly dried with a MF towel and the shine does look pretty glass like and wet
Still a little suspicious that it will last 5 years but only had car a month so I'll give it some time before I make any conclusive judgement

Why use water only? Use a good ph balanced soap that will add lubrication to your wash mitt. Other wise your basically wet sanding your paint. Soap lifts the dirt away from your paint

Ceramics are so much easier to apply than wax...
