Stage 1: Wash, followed by a Clay Bar 

Washing a car to remove accumulated dirt or debris from a vehicle’s surface requires a great attention to detail. Using a clay bar as an additional step in the ceramic coating process ensures that any embedded dirt or debris that was not removed from washing, is now removed. Additionally, polishing smoothes out the paint flaws and creates an even smooth surface for the ceramic coat to properly work.

Stage 2: Wet sanding to level surface

Wet sanding is the primary method we use to smooth the surface. This procedure guarantees that the vehicle’s paint will be even. 

Stage 3: Buffing and polishing

Both Buffing and Polishing are an extra step to remove any imperfections on the paint. In addition to wet sanding, buffing and polishing removes any leftover residue or smudges. This results in a glossy finish.  

Stage 4: Adding sealing & coating

A sealing and ceramic coating that shields the paint from UV rays, acid rain, water spots, and scratches completes the paint protection process.
