How long does a ceramic coating last on a car?

This a frequently asked question we get asked here at CF Ceramics. Our professionally applied ceramic coatings are available in 3, 5 or 8 years longevity. A breakdown of what is available is below. In general our ceramic coatings have been over-engineered to last longer than the stated longevity. This ensures that we have very little in terms of failures before the stated durability.


Aquacoat Pro 3 Year Car Ceramic Coating

Aquacoat Pro, is our professional level ceramic coating that is used by our Branches & Accredited detailers. Most ceramics available for car owners to apply themselves do not have the durability as they have been designed to be easy to apply and do not have the durability that comes with a product for professional use, as they are harder to apply because of the thickness of the coatings. Aquacoat Pro, whilst sold as 3 year ceramic, is actually tested to last 4 years, this ensures that it can withstand all conditions.
