Needed a quick ceramic coating job for my new truck and stumbled upon Car Lab. Man, am I glad I did! They hooked me up with a same-day appointment and the results are mind-blowing. My truck looks better than it did in the showroom. Definitely going back for more services. These guys are magic!

I recently brought in my second car to Car Lab for ceramic coating, and once again, super happy with the outcome. The team maintains their high standards, and it’s great to see consistency in their work.

Went to another shop initially and they completely butchered the ceramic job. Came to Car Lab a few months after and they actually did the job the right way. Wish I came here the first time around.

No, ceramic will not Crack, Peel or Yellow. Our products have undergone SGS testing and real-life testing in some of the worlds harshest environments, and surpassed every one of them.

Is ceramic an alternative to wax?

Yes, once ceramic is applied you will never need to wax again. Cleaning your vehicle’s paint is as easy as maintain as your glass/windshield. No need for abrasive washes or any waxes/sealants.

Will ceramic protect my car from scratches?

Durability

Will ceramic protect me from rock chips?

Ceramic is a Silica based product, meaning it is a “glass” coating. Ceramic adds some rock chip resistance, but it can still get rock chips from larger stones and high speeds. The glass windshield on your vehicle will still get rock chips, just much less often than your clearcoat.

Will ceramic prevent water spots?

No, ceramic will not prevent water spotting, but it WILL allow those pesky waterspots to be easily removed without damaging the surface. Because ceramic creates a protective layer over the substrate, it does not allow the minerals to corrode or etch the surface that ceramic is protecting, prolonging the life of your metals, paints, gelcoat, plastics, vinyls etc. ceramic is a silica based/glass product and the glass on your windshield can still get water spots, but it is much more resistant to water spots than your clearcoat.

The 2nd step is to correct all the imperfections in the paint such as swirls and scratches.

Do I still need to wax after installing my ceramic?

No, ceramic products are the permanent replacement to wax and sealants. You can throw those products in the trash!

Does this product require annual servicing?

Yes. To maintain your warranty, you need to attend an annual service. This is to ensure ceramic performs properly for the entire length of the warranty. If an annual inspection is missed, the warranty could be voided.

I just coated my vehicle, how long til I can wash it?

You should wait 14 days before the 1st wash to allow the solvents to outgas and fully cure. If you notice that your car gets water spots, bird droppings, tree sap etc. during these two weeks immediately remove it following our care instructions. Keep in mind the coating is softer during the 14 days so work on the paint very gently.

Ceramic Coating Service in Fort Collins Colorado

Give your beloved car a fresh start! Detail it with a new ceramic coating by the best of the best in town! But what exactly is a ceramic coat? A nano-ceramic coating system is an ultra-durable layer of glass covering every inch of your vehicle’s surface. This acts as a barrier between your paint and harmful elements on the road.Think of it as a sacrificial layer on your car’s surface to safeguard the paint and clear coat underneath. If you live in an area where winter ice and snow are prominent, this protective layer will make those harsh chemicals easier to remove due to the coating’s hydrophobic properties. Moreover, it acts as an extra shield from environmental pollutants, tree sap, scratches from road salt, grime, dirt, industrial fallout dust, binding brake dust, and anything else that tries to ruin your car’s paint job. Overall, it helps your beloved ride stay cleaner longer!

Car Lab also knows that adequate preparation is critical for a long-lasting coating on top of having the right equipment.

We spend a lot of time correcting a vehicle’s exterior before applying the ceramic coat. When needed, we perform paint correction and address any minor scratches, unwanted marks, and faded paint on the surface before applying. The vehicle’s surface must be perfect before applying the base coat as the imperfections will be very hard to correct after the application of the first layer.

Maintaining Ceramic Coatings

For maintaining ceramic coatings we recommend you wash their car regularly utilizing a hand wash. Ceramic coatings on your vehicle require at least once a month maintenance for maximum protection and an enhanced gloss finish. We do not recommend you take your car through a tunnel car wash system as it will put swirl marks in the ceramic coating and ruin the paint job as well as integrity of the coating itself. We offer one free monthly maintenance cleaning for all of our customers who get a ceramic coating applied by Car Lab to get you started. We recommend you to wash the car regularly for proper maintenance (Car Lab provides exterior and interior detailing services, check them out here!) We do not recommend you take your car through a tunnel car wash system as it will put swirl marks on the coating and void the warranty. We offer one free monthly maintenance cleaning for all customers who get a ceramic coating applied by Car Lab.

Installing the Ceramic Coatings

When we finalize the correction process, our Car Lab technicians apply the Suncoat ceramic coating by hand with a one-inch soft foam applicator. We top off this coat with a special nano-ceramic sealant composed of silicon dioxide and titanium dioxide to give your car an extra layer of immunity. The last step is to ensure the ceramic coat cures for 6 hours to achieve a hydrophobic surface and a permanent bond. A properly applied ceramic coat will show water beads (a phenomenon that occurs on the body paint when water droplets form on top of the painted surface instead of sticking). We make sure the coating is maintained in a controlled environment during the curing time to ensure proper bonding to the car’s paint.

Annual Inspections & Warranty

Annual Inspections must be carried out by an approved applicator, within 30 days before or after the anniversary date of the last service to maintain the warranty. Failure to undertake an annual inspection within the required period will void the warranty. A fee of $150 will be charged for the Annual Inspection, which includes – Exterior Wash, Decontamination, Application of Topcoat, and Inspection. Warranty terms can be found here (Click Here)
