In Kl, we certainly need wheels to move around often. On the road you can see some great ones that is still like brand new and some with the same series as ours, the colour already slowly worn out. I usually do take a good care of my ride, as I will hit on group buying site to purchase some random car polish voucher to polish twice a year. Once I click on those sites, my FB wall is filled with advertising of Ceramic Pro Nano Coating.
It was only recently that I send my car to Ceramic Pro at Setia Alam Branch for Ceramic Pro Permanent Nano-Ceramic Paint Coating treatment for Gold Package. My car is about 5 years old as with this treatment, is to enhance the look and feel of it like brand new that will be lasting for about 7 years.
Some of you might think what is Ceramic Pro? Is it another brand? In deed it is. (this will be quite technical)
It is a clear liquid nanoceramic coating that can be applied in multiple layers. After complete polymerization the solutions on the surface will transform into a permanent durable but flexible ceramic shield. It can be described as an additional clear coating with 3 times the hardness and self-cleaning properties. This special coatings are designed for automotive, marine, aviation and industrial applications with formulas that are molecularly designed for various surfaces such as paint, vinyl, polymers, glass and more.
Engaging into their Gold Package as it covers 6 layers of coating with 7 years warranty. Before dropping your car, you first need to make an appointment to ensure there is a slot for you as it is requires 1 full day from 9.30am – 5pm to complete the whole process.
As check out the workshop, the whole scene of this place do reminds me of Iron Man research lab.
If the package you purchase only cost you about a few hours of waiting time, then you can stay put behind while working in their waiting room. Fit with coffee and comfy chairs.
Step 1 – Car Wash & Clay Bar Process
First station, of course to get the car clean off from all the dirt’s through their in house car wash. Follow by a thorough claying process with a clay bar to remove all impurities before the paint correction.
During this process, you can see the difference of before and after from the car body, bonnet and interior side board. It brings the original colour to life.
Step 2 – Paint Correction Stage (3 steps polish)
In this stage, it will be treated with an extensive paint correction through a three (3) step polishing process. With some micro scratches on the side door is all gone
Step 3 – Ceramic Pro spray coating application (exterior & interior)
At this stage, only the professional staff can apply the Ceramic Pro 9 coatings onto the different surfaces – body, rims, dashboard, leather seats,and remaining part of the car.
This layer of features of High Gloss finish, unmatched Super Hydrophobic Effect, Chemical Resistance, UV Resistance, Thermal Resistance and Anti-Grafitti. This puts Ceramic Pro in a category by itself, compared to sealants or waxes that degrade quickly.
This is quite interesting as recently have been raining consistently and I was quite surprise to see the droplets of water on the roof of my car and only knew that it is from the super hydrophobic effect of the coating will cause water to bead up and roll of the surface with any dirt and grime easily. This coating also good that it offers superior protection from damaging contamination and harsh chemicals and especially if you accidentally park your car under a huge tree at 7pm where you come back 2 hours later your car got bomb!
Step 4 – Infrared Curing process
Before final stage my car underwent an infrared curing process to permanently bond the coatings to the surface of my car, ensuring that it will last at least 7 years.
With this process, it had made the surface more hard to above 9H, where our normal typical clear coat has hardness between 2H and 4H.
The paint also won’t fade or age due to the UV protection in the Ceramic coating.
OK so exactly how does it work? This pretty amazing nano technology allows the Ceramic nanoparticles to fill the smallest pores in the paint which makes the Ceramic Pro ceramic shield shiny, smooth and extremely slick or hydrophobic. Ceramic Pro dramatically lowers the surface tension preventing environmental contaminants such as: bird droppings, bugs, dirt, tar and graffiti paint from bonding to the surface. Water easily removes dirt from the surface by encapsulating it while rolling off the surface, hence the “self-cleaning effect”.
Step 5 – Magnus Pro Paint Protection Film (PPF)
I also had the Magnus Pro Paint Protection Film (PPF) applied to my headlights and door handle area them against stone chips and scratches.

When I reach back to the shop, could not believe that the car had just transformed. The final product is pretty impressive as I am totally satisfied. The maintenance is straight forward whereby we just need to wash our car like how we normally do. The best part of now is that we do not need to wax. As it easily last about 7 years.
