New Car Paint Protection Coating

Our New Car Ceramic Paint Protection coatings are the ultimate protection & visual enhancement for your car. They simplify maintenance & maximise the value of your investment. A Ceramic Paint Protection Coating works, and is one of your vehicle’s three necessities. The Coating sits on top of the paint like a transparent chain metal suit. They are composed of tens of thousands of synthetic particles that are cross linked together. The coating bonds to your vehicle’s paint, it forms a glossy and slick rigid shell that has a candy like gloss. This is surface science at its best!

The real selling point of a Ceramic Coating is the durability. Ceramic Coatings just last longer, end of story. By last longer, water will continue to bead and the paint will remain protected from UV rays and environmental contamination. At Adelaide Paint Protection we choose to use only the very best products that are backed by long term manufacturers warranties. All our products have a minimum 5 Year warranty, with the most durable product carrying the countries longest, at 10 Years! Our Ceramic Coatings are for people that want to spend more time enjoying driving than detailing.

Remember, Paint Protection is one of your vehicle’s basic necessities. No matter what kind of vehicle you drive Adelaide Paint Protection has a world class protective coating to ensure your vehicle is covered.

What are the Benefits ?


A premium advantage of Ceramic Coatings are there hydrophobic properties, which means that it creates a surface that repels water. This means that mud and grime will have a more difficult time bonding with the vehicle’s paint, and when the car is washed contaminants come off more easily.


A Ceramic Coating does all of this with just one application! Unlike a traditional wax or sealant, a Ceramic Coating does not wash away or break down and does not require repeated application every few months. After one application, your vehicle experiences all of these benefits guaranteed for 10 years.


In addition to adding protective qualities to the paint, our Ceramic Coatings improve the paint’s appearance by enhancing its reflective properties. This increases the depth and clarity of the paint.


The ultra smooth surface that a Ceramic Coating creates enhances the reflective properties of your car’s paint. The result is that your car will really pop with gloss and shine. Especially after a fresh wash, your car’s paint will have that beautiful just-been-waxed kind of look, without having to spend time applying wax!


The Pencil Hardness Scale is used to compare the relative scratch resistance of various coatings. Coatings are measured from 1H to 10H, with 1H being the least scratch resistant, and 10H being the most. Multiple Ceramic Coatings have a 9H rating and these now form the entry level of Quality Ceramic Coatings. There are several products that are at the pinnacle of durability wearing the 10H label. And YES all are available at Adelaide Paint Protection!


A Ceramic Coating is about 100 times thicker than a traditional wax. That means it provides substantially more protection than a normal sealant. The chemically resistant surface helps mitigate stains and etching caused by environmental contaminants like bird-droppings or bug-splatter. After applying a Ceramic Coating, it is still important to remove naturally acidic contaminants from your paint as quickly as possible. However, your layer of Ceramic Coating will minimise damage and help protect the factory paint and clear coat underneath.

Having been installing Ceramic Coatings for 11+ years now, we are factory trained to install every major brand of Professional quality Ceramic Coatings!

Just like your new car or new phone, Ceramic Coatings evolve each year and better formulas are produced.

We install over 15 Ceramic Coatings each week and are constantly asked to trial new products. Our R&D location is on acreage at McLaren Vale is where we test every new Ceramic Coating for several parameters before finally making them available for OUR customers. We have 14 Black bonnets that have coatings installed, followed by monthly checks and measures through all weathers!

So you can rest assured that the products and brands we sell ARE THE BEST EXAMPLES AVAILABLE.

A Professionally applied Ceramic Coating installation is invisible, & will actually amplify the colour of your cars new Paint!

The self-healing technology describes the ability to return to its original form after washing marks, swirl marks, or other light scratches are introduced into the surface of the Coating.

In our testing of four Self Healing Ceramic Coatings, NONE of the coatings were able to ‘self heal’ as stated. Consequently you won’t find any of these products offered at our sites.

In short in our opinion, Self Healing Ceramic Coatings are a myth.

*Correctly maintained – THIS IS UP TO YOU. All of our customers are given wash guides, product recommendations & ongoing FREE advice as long as  you need, to maintain your coating.

When your new car is collected from us we give you FREE samples of our recommended products to try. You simply can’t go wrong!! 

As a guide a properly maintained Pro Grade Coating (notice I said PRO GRADE) will provide excellent service for a minimum 9 years – GUARANTEED.

There are so many variables including, garaging, wash technique, colour, wash product, drying regime and the list goes on.

We are sent pictures weekly of happy customers snow foaming their cars, or applying Ceramic Spray to ensure the maximum durability of their coatings.

Maintenance is simple, but important!

PRO Grade Ceramic Coatings require the use of Sandpaper to remove them once cured! Not sure why you would want to remove a Coating though?

Compare this to the average lifespan of a PTFE product that most dealerships offer and you begin to understand why purchasing your new Ceramic Coating from Adelaide Paint Protection is the clear choice!
