Ceramic Coating Service in Kansas City

Treat your beloved car to a fresh start with a new ceramic coating applied by the best professionals in town! But what exactly is a ceramic coat? It's an ultra-durable layer of glass that covers every inch of your vehicle's surface, acting as a protective barrier between your paint and harmful elements on the road.

Think of it as a sacrificial layer, safeguarding the paint and clear coat underneath. Especially in areas with prominent winter ice and snow, this protective layer makes it easier to remove harsh chemicals, thanks to its hydrophobic properties. Additionally, it provides an extra shield against environmental pollutants, tree sap, road salt scratches, grime, dirt, industrial fallout dust, binding brake dust, and anything else that could harm your car's paint job. Overall, it helps your beloved ride stay cleaner for longer!

Permanent Protection

While we acknowledge that you spend most of your time inside the car, the exterior also deserves special attention. Our Ceramic coatings are designed to last  5 - 10 years with proper maintenance and care. We utilize the finest pro-grade 9H professional ceramic coatings featuring advanced nano-technology that enhances paint depth and provides reliable water repellency. At Empire Customs, we apply the coating to various surfaces, including the vehicle's paint, glass, plastic trim, glass windows and rims.

How We Apply Ceramic Coatings

The application process can be quite challenging to undertake alone, which is why Empire Customs is here to assist you! We understand the significance of proper preparation and having the right equipment for a durable coating. That's why, before each application, we take the time to thoroughly assess your car.

The initial step is to address the car's paint. We dedicate ample time to correct any imperfections on the vehicle's exterior before applying the ceramic coat. This involves paint correction to fix minor scratches, unwanted marks, and faded paint on the surface. Ensuring the vehicle's surface is flawless before applying the base coat is crucial, as imperfections become harder to correct after the first layer is applied.

The Best Ceramic Coating For Cars

We utilize the highest quality pro-grade 9H professional ceramic coatings. This nano ceramic coating product enhances paint depth and provides exceptional water and dirt repellency, offering rugged durability that lasts for years. It's one of the best ceramic coatings available. We apply this ceramic coating product to various surfaces, including the vehicle's paint, plastic trim, glass windows, and rims. It can even be added on top of paint protection film. Depending on the chosen package and proper maintenance, ceramic coatings can last 5 years or 10 years. The pricing of the coating varies based on factors such as the condition and color of the vehicle's paint, as well as the vehicle's size. The cost typically ranges from $750 to $2,000, depending on the scope of the project.

Maintaining Ceramic Coatings

To maintain ceramic coatings, we advise regular hand washing for your car. For maximum protection and an enhanced gloss finish, ceramic-coated vehicles should undergo maintenance at least once a month. However, taking your car through a tunnel car wash system is not recommended, as it may cause swirl marks on the coating and compromise the paint job and the coating's integrity. At Empire Customs, we offer one free monthly maintenance cleaning to all customers who have had a ceramic coating applied by us. Proper maintenance ensures the longevity of your ceramic coating and keeps your car looking its best.

Installing the Ceramic Coatings

Once we complete the correction process, our skilled Empire Customs technicians meticulously apply the ceramic coating by hand, utilizing a one-inch soft foam applicator. The final step is crucial as we allow the ceramic coat to cure for 1 hour, ensuring a hydrophobic surface and a permanent bond.

A properly applied ceramic coat will exhibit water beads, where water droplets form on top of the painted surface instead of sticking to it. Throughout the curing time, we carefully maintain the coating in a controlled environment to ensure a perfect bond with your car's paint. This meticulous process ensures that your vehicle benefits from maximum immunity and a stunning appearance.

What Does A Ceramic Coating For Cars Offer?

We offer 5 Year and 10 Year protection packages with our 9H Ceramic Coating. Our Ceramic Coating boasts hydrophobic properties, effectively repelling water and providing a shield against pollutants, salt, bird droppings, bug splatters, and other common contaminants. It safeguards your paint from harsh winter ice/snow removal chemicals and summer sun damage while repelling road grime from sticking to your car's paint. Moreover, it enhances the depth of color in your vehicle's paint, saving you money on unnecessary paint correction services. The protection extends to delicate areas on your car, including headlights and emblems, and it helps prolong the life of any existing ceramic paint sealant or car wax on your car. Additionally, the Ceramic Coating provides defense against harmful UV rays, which can otherwise damage your car's paint. Lastly, it makes future clean-up jobs quick and easy with a simple rinse.
