CERAMIC COATINGEXPERIENCE THE BEST CERAMIC COATINGS IN WALNUT CREEK
WALNUT CREEK’S CERTIFIED CERAMIC COATING MASTER INSTALLER. NO OTHER CERAMIC COATING COMES CLOSE.
If you’ve ever wondered how certain cars look so glossy, clean, and pristine, there is a chance those cars are using Ceramic Coatings. Ceramic Coating starts out as a clear liquid. When this nano-ceramic coating is applied to a vehicle and cured, it dries and transforms into a transparent shield. In addition, it is able to be layered for added protection on your car, truck or SUV in Walnut Creek.
WHY CHOOSE CERAMIC COATING?
UNMATCHED SHIELDING AND PROTECTION
As opposed to traditional clear coats, which have a hardness measure between 2H and 4H, Ceramic Coating can come in as high as 9H once cured. That means Ceramic Coating is the king of the mountain as far as hardness goes, and it also means it is highly able to protect your car’s original coat of paint.
DAMAGE PREVENTION FOR YOUR CAR, TRUCK OR SUV
Help ward off acid rain, tree sap, bird droppings and hard water mineral deposits from permanently damaging your expensive factory paint job. On the off chance that minor scratches or surface staining does occur, they can be more easily polished off without damaging the underlying layer.
PERMANENT EFFECTIVENESS FOR YOUR VEHICLE IN WALNUT CREEK
With proper maintenance, Ceramic Coating can last the entire lifetime of your car. In addition, Ceramic Coating can also be combined with other protective measures, such as a clear bra or paint protection film, to protect your car even more thoroughly.
UV PROTECTION FOR THE LIFE OF YOUR VEHICLE
Ceramic Coating provides UV protection, meaning your paint will not fade from sun exposure and with proper maintenance will stay looking like new for years to come.
KEEP YOUR CAR LOOKING GREAT
Especially in a busy city like Walnut Creek, it can be difficult to keep a car looking its best. The task becomes easier with Ceramic Coating because ceramic coatings provide a glossy, slick appearance. They also make cars easier to clean. For example, the unfortunate staples of city life–such as bird droppings, dirt, bugs, and other waste–have a much harder time bonding to Ceramic Coating than to a car’s base layer of paint. Water can easily remove anything that does attach itself.

GROUNDBREAKING AUTO DETAILING
GORGEOUS PROTECTION AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE
WHAT IS CERAMIC COATING?
Ceramic coating is a groundbreaking auto detailing tool used to protect the surfaces inside and outside of growing defects causing materials. Such two substances, composed primarily of silica and titanium dioxide, together form a covalent bond which is hydrophobic in nature and forms a nano-ceramic shield over the clear coat of the vehicle. The protective shield provides permanent protection against common environmental pollutants including insect acids, road salt, bird droppings, rust, spinning, slight scratching and helps protect the vehicle from the sun’s damaging rays. It’s these properties, along with the hydrophobicity, that separates ceramic coatings from the archaic waxes or sealants.
The word “hydrophobic” is described as “tending to repel or fail to mix with water”. While finding mainly in industrial and automotive industries, hydrophobic components remain and have existed for millennia in the natural world. If you’ve ever seen a lotus flower floating in a body of water then in fact you’ve seen hydrophobic properties. It is actually these hydrophobic properties that allow the lotus to float in a body of water without getting bogged down and waterlogged from its surroundings. By applying these same hydrophobic principles of the Lotus to industrial and detailing products, people are now able to protect previously permeable surfaces.
Ceramic coatings over a myriad of different surfaces are useful. From leathers, textiles, stainless steel, wood, paint, marine surfaces, boats, helicopters to car interiors and exterior surfaces. Every non-biological surface you can imagine will basically be coated with ceramic coatings. Ceramic coatings help protect both valuable and important surfaces from premature degradation and aging, from hydrophobic protection for designer handbags and high-end accessories to brick storefronts, and most of everything in between. If protecting a surface from water damage swirling, oxidation or premature aging is important to you then the ceramic coating can help extend the lives of your important assets while making cleanup a breeze!
THE CLEAN UP
Cleaning up a vehicle with ceramic coating is much easier and less costly than cleaning up an exposed surface. Cleanup with ceramic coatings is as easy as spraying with a hose or a bucket of water to the outside of a wall. The coating’s hydrophobicity allows for easy sliding of dirt, mud, snow, grime, bird droppings, insect poisons, road salt and other environmental pollutants off the protected area. What do you mean by that? Essentially it means more time to enjoy the road and appreciate the ceramic coating’s high gloss hydrophobic finish, and less time to wash your car. With all this extra time on your hands, an owner of a ceramic coated vehicle can now spend more time enjoying the open road than ever before!
WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS?
Although they’re now catching wings in the mainstream for several years now, ceramic car coatings have been around the detailing industry for many many years.
Because of their prohibitive costs by data, however, they were historically only available or cost-effective to high-end car enthusiasts or owners.
There are two options when deciding you want your auto surface ceramic coated:
DIY Consumer Kits

CS-II Titanium Paint Protection
Why Consider CS-II Titanium?
Paint is vulnerable to external environment factors
Other things that make paint thin and corrode are washing, cutting, polishing, weather, and UV rays, among others. Due all the various elements, a weather worn and damaged paint surface will devalue the vehicle and affect its beauty. Getting a new paint job then becomes a necessity under these conditions and that means spendings lots of $$$.
Best in Protecting Against Damage to Paint
Once a car exits the assembly plant, its paint is subjected to harsh conditions. Through regular use, it will endure scratches from flying debris and other environmental factors. Bugs, tree sap, bee poop, acid rain and bird droppings wear away the car paint through chemical reactions. In order to remove the above surface contaminants one should clean the car regularly, but frequent cleaning without proper protection on the paint will cause the paint to thin and wear.
CS-II Glass Coating
A modern, CS-II product. This new product will give shine to your car like never before. Our CS-II Glass Coating, designed by careful testing that won’t disappoint you.
The Benefit of CS-II Glass Coating:
Hardens to form a protective shield.
Spray-on technology allows for easy application.
Improves paint hardness by at least 20%.
Anti-acids and anti-salts.
High gloss and mirror-finish effects.
Dirt-deflecting, keeping paint clean longer.
Easy to clean.
Weather protection for a long lasting shine against UV and other elements.
No need for waxing!
With the new nanotechnology, our research team at CS-II has carried out large amounts of research and development on various surface treatments. We decided to create a company that could do amazing things with paint.
The defense against Nano paint is the culmination of that effort. Our CS-II Glass Coating is a special nanotechnology product which has a long-term impact on painted surfaces such as plastic trimming, glass, wheels and more. This is not just a sealer which forms a surface barrier. It is, rather, a molecular-level alteration of surface chemistry to provide a permanent, easy to clean, and safe surface. It ensures that it is not just a paste that can be washed away but a substance that sticks to the surface.
CS-II’s Titanium Coating is the best form of protection against such damage to paint.
It was developed and made to protect the sensitive paint from all forms of contaminants. Ultimately, it adds more hardness over the factory clear coat with incredible gloss and richness which results in your vehicle looking better and newer for a longer period of time.
Titanium Nanometal Titanium Permanent Coating is our top of the line product. The liquid turns into a 9H (pencil hardness) glass film when applied onto the surface. CS-II Titanium makes a thin protective layer which is superior in adhesive strength. With a high resistance to abrasion, it will not deteriorate with age and protects against further corrosion. Titanium Nanometal also produces a high gloss effect which maximizes the rate of reflected light, creating a new car shine.
This coating cannot be removed by washing or using harsh soaps or cleaners, once cured it needs to be removed through machine polishing. The paint on the car’s surface will maintain its natural and flexible exterior with temperature changes like no other productive.
CS-II Clear Vue: Glass coating is a treatment for glass safety that provides a transparent, water-repellent, non-stick barrier to protect a variety of surfaces such as glass.
CS-II Aqua: Instead of wax, Aqua shines and covers the vehicle with layers of Silica Glass and Silicone Resin. Aqua creates a smooth finish which repels droppings and dirt from animals. Use water and soap, you can quickly clean the dirt and grime every day. Glass is a strong barrier to acid rain, sea salt, road salt, and other chemical substances.
CS-II Stage 2 Coating: Durations 18-24 months, and is the perfect entry level surface for customers new to or on a budget. No 18-24 months waxing is required. Once our paint safety product is applied, there will be no efffect to the coating from any acid rain, bird droppings or tree sap.
CS-II Ceramic Coating: A semi-permanent ceramic coating that needs only a single, thin coating and that provides long-term shine and protection. Your car will repel water and pollutants like a lotus leaf if treated with CS-II Ceramic Coating and will retain a transparent, reflective, showroom-like shine. No water, alkaline or other detergents or pressure washers may strip ceramic coating.
CS-II Titanium Coating: The best titanium-coating car on the planet. Of vehicle surfaces it uses the next generation of protective coating. The extremely durable crystal coat serves as a protective armor against acid rain, droppings of animals, road film, tar and harmful UV rays. This maintains the paint’s luster and shine on your car with the best hardness rating (9h) while its adhesive ability can reduce the appearance of light scratches. The paint is therefore preserved, and given a longer life cycle. Another significant advantage of Titanium Coating is that it provides a dark, rich gloss and finish. In the end this makes the vehicle’s potential washing faster and easier!
PAINT PROTECTIVE FILM (PPF) AND VINYL WRAPSPROTECT PAINT AGAINST ROCK CHIPS, BUGS & DEBRIS
• PROTECTS AGAINST ROCK CHIPS, BUGS, DEBRIS ETC.
• SELF-HEALING TOPCOAT THAT PROTECTS THE FILM FROM LIGHT SCRATCHES
• 5-10 YEAR MANUFACTURER WARRANTY
WHAT IS A PPF / VINYL WRAP?
Both Clear Paint Protective Film (PPF) and Vinyl Wraps (color change) are films that are used to paint on top of your cars. PPF is a transparent polyurethane film usually about 8miles thick (including adhesive) to protect the paint against rock chips, bugs, debris etc. It should be invisible if installed correctly! Now the PPF has a Self-healing topcoat that protects the film from light scratches; you can literally take a wire brush to the film, scratch it, add a little heat from a hairdryer and watch the scratches vanish. Which means you will never again have to clean this panel out!
Nonetheless, vinyl wraps are just amazing! It seems there are endless numbers of colors to choose from! Now the thickness is about 3 milimeters, which means it won’t give you the maximum protection as compared to PPF. The film will take the damage from light scratches and small rocks but this is more of a cosmetic solution for the most part. We have some of our working cars covered in vinyl and the front ends are pretty chipped up, which is the usual case here in the San Francisco Bay Area.
In California, you’re lucky to get more than a few years out of a vinyl Wrap. That can vary depending on if it’s parked outside or IN a garage.
Generally, you will get a 5-10 year manufacturer warranty with PPF that covers yellowing, cracking, fading, staining, and delaminating. We’ve had great success both with Xpel Ultimate and Suntek Ultra, both of which come with a 10-year guarantee. We’ve seen installations completed over 10 years ago and they still look good, not to mention the films keep improving year after year!
All PPF and vinyl wraps are excellent, depending on what you want most, security or appearance.
HOW DO I PROTECT PPF & VINYL?
Ceramic Pro PPF & Vinyl is a clear, multi-layer, nano-ceramic liquid coating that transforms itself on the surface into a smooth, flexible glass shield when it is cured. The coating forms a chemical bond with the film which allows the filling of all empty pores on the surface, creating a brand new protective layer. The new Ceramic Pro was fully reengineered to combine with PPF (Paint Protection Film) and Vinyl Wraps. A base coat and a topcoat are used for the full Ceramic Pro PPF & Vinyl safety scheme. The base coat is Ceramic Pro PPF & Vinyl. Instead, this is coated with PPF & Vinyl Bottom. The final coating is slightly softer than the initial protective base coat. It allows higher gloss and a deep-wet feel. With the added slickness of the coated surface, pollutants like bugs, dirt, and tar are less likely to cling to the coating of your vehicle, making activities such as washing the applied areas less labor-intensive and less frequent.
The coating can help prevent the etching process from contaminants such as bird droppings and tree sap, or substantially slow it down. This will give the car owner time to remove the contaminant before permanent damage is done. Apart from preventing pollutants from reaching the porous surface, the UV Protection associated with the coating can improve the durability of the film by reducing the yellowing phase. This provides an extended period of clearer film. It protects against pollution and weathering which results in a film which is much easier to clean. It also helps to reduce the appearance of the orange peel on the vinyl.

ABOUT PAINT PROTECTION FILM
Paint protection film (PPF) is a thermoplastic urethane self-healing film applied to painted surfaces of a new or used car to shield the paint from stone chips, bug splatters, and minor abrasions. Paint safety film is a licensed OEM by nearly all automakers. We carry two high-quality brands STEK and Xpel PPF at Stockyard Detailing. Both have proved to be 2 of the best companies in the industry, and continue to prove themselves.
All Paint Safety Packages have a full list on the outside. Then we bar the area being applied with PPF to ensure that the surface is clean and dirt-free. Unlike many shops that only add the film to the edges, usually leaving the acute edges bare and exposed, we wrap all possible edges to ensure that everybody panel angle is covered and secured against the elements. By washing the car and applying a 6-month spray-on sealant, we finish it off. We stand by our work and inspect every job you get to pick up to make sure you’re satisfied with our work.
WHAT IS USED TO MAKE PAINT PROTECTION FILM? THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND CLEAR BRA
If you’re going to tie something around your fine new car, you’re going to want to know not just where it came from but exactly what it is. Let’s talk a bit more about what is inside a Paint Safety Film cover. The key ingredient is urethane, a potent and flexible polymer made of carbamate connections. It has unique attributes as a compound: It is lightweight and translucent, like rubber. But it is not fragile or vulnerable to tears and cracks as compared to plastic. It possesses a high impact, abrasion and corrosion resistance. It is also incredibly flexible, and after being stretched or disfigured, will return to its natural shape.
It has a wide variety of industrial and recreational uses due to the versatile and beneficial properties of the polymer. Urethane is used in the household caulk with which you line your bathroom tiles because it seals moisture gaps and prevents mildew or fungus from developing. Coating boats and underwater cables can also be found so as to prevent damage. It is used in different parts of the sports equipment, from football pads to surfboard fins. The strength and wear and tear resistance make it an ideal part of the fabrication and mining equipment. As previously mentioned, urethane is still used to cover different parts of military and aerospace equipment.
Urethane as a pigment is commonly used, but today we’re talking about your car and urethane acts as a key component for your vehicle in a translucent film about 8 miles (0.008 inches) thick.
A standard Paint Protection Film has at least two other layers in addition to the main layer consisting of urethane (or polyurethane). Next, the top is filled with elastomeric polymers made of a clear coat. As we have already mentioned, this is the aspect that helps a good film to repair itself from small scratches. But they do a lot more. The clear coat on a good film will have low surface energy which prevents the bonding with the film of organic compounds, such as bugs or bird droppings.
Furthermore, the bottom is coated with an acrylic adhesive built to be versatile, so that it can be extended and wrapped around every contour or the vehicle; strong, so that the film doesn’t break over time; and invisible, so that it doesn’t impact the paint’s look.
High performance PVC, film built for the automotive industry using new technological standards. This product offers multiple colors, shades, transparencies and textures. These films are specifically designed for partial and complete car wraps.
Our adhesive technology is unique in the industry, with two new features added! Apart from the air-release feature that has become industry standard, Apollo Auto Spa has come out with air-channels that are self-seal. This feature allows air channels to disappear and keep the finish looking great over time! This also helps to keep the film from “breathing” in dust, chemicals, and other toxins that would normally cause a wrap to fail. The second feature is an adhesive that is stretchable and will not lose adhesive tack when overstretched. This allows a film that was stretched to keep its stability over the life of the vinyl as long as the film was post heated properly in high stretched areas.
