Frequently Asked Questions
What is Nano Technology?
The word “Nano” refers to the size of the molecules or particles in the coating itself. These particles range from 80-100 nano-meters. Doesn’t mean a lot to most people but to put it to scale there are 25 million nano-meters in an inch.
Because the particles are so small, when applied to a surface, they seal all the pores making the surface hydrophobic (water-repellent), but also resistant to UV, scratches, chemicals, extreme heat and even anti-graffiti.

Can I apply multiple coats?
CK1 Coatings™ can be layered up to 5 times for added thickness and durability. Wait at least 1 hour between coats.
Does CK1 Coatings™ protect against rock chips?
CK1 Ceramic Coatings™ has a hardness level of 9H (which is very hard) and will help to protect against very light chips and scratches. However, CK1 Coatings™ is not designed to protect against high velocity projectiles such as rock chips while driving at higher speeds. You should not purchase CK1 Coatings™ for chip and scratch protection, but look at it as an extra benefit for light damage.
Can I use CK1 Coatings™ on chrome?
Yes, CK1 Coatings™ works great on chrome. Be sure to thoroughly remove all excess product after application to avoid streaks and clouding.
Can I use CK1 Coatings™ on wheels?
CK1 Coatings™ is perfect for wheels! The coating will help limit brake dust build up on the wheel and make cleaning a breeze.
Can I use CK1 Coatings™ on my boat?
CK1 Marine Coatings™ works incredible on boats!
Can I use CK1 Coatings™ on vinyl wraps and decals?
Yes. For matte and satin vinyl, we recommend using a test area on a small inconspicuous area first to make sure you are happy with the results, as the coating may add a small amount of shine. However, the protective benefits of the coating will remain when applied to vinyl products.
Can I use CK1 Coatings™ on my clear bra?
Yes, you can apply CK1 Coatings™ over your clear bra to enhance its protection and prevent yellowing.
Why isn’t CK1 Coatings™ available in stores?
We prefer to offer warranties thru our network of automotive dealership finance departments to offer 5 year. protection for new and used car owners.
Can I remove the coating once applied?
Since CK1 Coatings™ are engineered to be permanent, they cannot be chemically stripped. Removal requires mechanical abrasion with compounds and polishes, like a typical clear coat would.
Can I apply traditional waxes and sealants over CK1 Coatings™?
Yes, but the wax or sealant will not have the same level of durability on a ceramic coating because the coating will try to shed the wax and sealant instead of letting it bond. CK1 Coatings™ is superior to traditional waxes and sealants, and once applied, you will never need to wax again.
How should I prepare my vehicle for coatings application?
Any polishing or paint correction should be completed before applying CK1 Coatings™. If you’re happy with the condition of your finish, make sure your vehicle has been thoroughly washed and dried. Clean the vehicle surface with CK1 Coatings™ Prep to remove any remaining polish, wax, and surface contaminants.
Why can’t you tell me how long my coating will last?
There are many variables that determine the lifetime of a nano ceramic coating including how often you drive, the environment you live in, how often you wash your car, and where you store it. For example, if you live in a harsh climate and park your vehicle outside, your coating may not last as long as a vehicle that is mainly stored indoors in a mild climate.
