Is Ceramic Coating scratch proof?
Think of a coating as a sacrificial layer
When properly installed a ceramic coating chemically bonds to your vehicles clear coat to provide a "hard shell". Think of a coating as a first defense if you will. Coatings DO NOT make your vehicle impervious to scratches but do make it harder to scratch. Also because the surface becomes extremely hydrophobic so it becomes harder for dirt and contamination to stick. Another common misconception is that it will prevent water spotting and this is simply not true. Water spots are a force of nature and the only way to prevent them is to never take your vehicle out in the rain and/or dry it thoroughly after each wash. Coatings will not make your car bullet proof but they do provide you with time and money savings in the long run by helping to make your cars finish easier to maintain for years.
