Step 1- Preparation
Prep work is an integral part of applying a ceramic coating, wax, sealant, or even PPF.
Cleaning the vehicle thoroughly to remove dirt, debris, and other contaminants.
Using a clay bar, clay mitt, or clay towel to remove contaminants.
Correction and polishing of paint
There is a big myth about ceramic coatings that they remove swirls, scratches, or faded paint from the paint surface. This is entirely false. Ceramic coatings serve as paint protectants, meaning they protect the existing paint surface. If the paint is full of scratches and swirls, a ceramic coating will actually amplify or magnify them. Hence, it is always recommended to correct the paint before applying ceramic coating.

The second step is to clean the IPA with nanotechnology
IPA is an effective solution for removing all polishing oil and chemicals from the car’s body. It is a special nano-based IPA solvent with a degreaser, not the typical IPA found in medical stores.
For effective bonding of ceramic coatings, nano-based IPA cleaners should be used because ceramic coatings are based on nanotechnology.
The third step is to determine the area of application and the conditions
Following the prep work and pre-wiping cleaning, you can apply the ceramic product. However, certain conditions and application areas must be discussed before proceeding.
It is imperative that ceramic coating be applied in a dust-free environment. If even a small amount of dirt sticks to the paint while you are applying ceramic coating, it will bind into the coating.
Second, the ideal temperature should be between 21 and 28 degrees centigrade, and the humidity should not exceed 50%.
For quality and long-lasting results, make sure to buy ceramic coating products India of the highest quality.
The fourth step is to apply a ceramic coating
Now let’s move on to the actual application. Follow these steps:
Before using, shake the bottle well.
Wrap the suede cloth around the sponge applicator.
On the sponge, pour a few drops.
Apply the coating in a criss-cross pattern (first horizontally, then vertically) across a 2ft X 2ft area.
The bubbles will appear after 30 to 60 seconds (depending on the temperature).
Use a microfiber to remove the excess and level the surface.
To shine, use a separate microfiber.
Make sure each section of the vehicle is inspected carefully. Use separate microfiber towels for leveling and buffing. Flip the microfibers over different sides as you go.
As soon as the ceramic coating is applied, allow the vehicle to sit indoors for a few hours. Avoid water and chemicals for a few days. The ceramic coating crystallizes as it is cured. Once fully cured, it provides amazing features like hydrophobicity, shine & luster, and protection against UV rays, colour fade, and other environmental hazards.
