Keep Your Vehicle Cleaner, Longer.

Ceramic Coatings

What’s the difference between Paint Protection Film (PPF) & Ceramic Coatings?

While paint protection film (PPF) preserves your vehicle’s paint job by reducing the risk of damaging chips and scratches from rocks, road debris, and swirl marks, a ceramic coating creates a slick, glossy layer of protection over the finish to shield it from corrosive chemical and environmental contaminants.

A ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that creates a hydrophobic (water repelling) and oleophobic (oil repelling) surface on your vehicle’s exterior so impurities can’t bond with the paint. Its water beading properties reduce the amount of time needed to keep your vehicle clean, saving you money on washing and detailing.

Superior Repelling of Water and Contaminants

Safeguard Your Windshield and Improve Driving Visibility With Our Glass Coatings

Your vehicle’s windshield is susceptible to pebbles, rocks, and other flying road debris that can create chips or cracks in the glass, putting you and your passengers at risk and leading to repair costs. Automotive Elegance can protect your windshield and improve visibility with our glass coating applications. 

XPEL Fusion Plus ceramic coating helps strengthen windshields and vehicle windows by bonding with the silica and filling in microscopic grooves and pits that can’t be seen with the naked eye. 

These glass coatings not only make a windshield and a vehicle’s windows stronger, but helps them repel rain, snow, ice, dirt, and insects. Cleaning the windshield is much easier with a glass coating applied, as water runs right off. 

They also help windshields resist scratches and improve a driver’s visibility in rain and snow and at night while reducing glare.
