Frequently Asked Questions
The ultimate protective shield
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.

frequently asked questions
What is hardness rating of CK1 Coatings™?
All CK1 Coatings have a 9H hardness, which is the highest rating in the industry.
How long will CK1 Coatings™ last?
CK1 Coatings™ are engineered to provide up to 5 years of protection for your vehicle.
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 CK1 Coatings™ be applied to glass?
Yes, CK1 Coatings™ works great on glass. When applied, it creates a hydrophobic barrier from water sticking to glass and the result is a beading effect.
Can CK1 Coatings™ be applied onto wheels?
CK1 Coatings™ is perfect for wheels! The coating will help limit brake dust build up on the wheel and make cleaning a breeze.
Is CK1 Coatings™ safe to be applied to boats?
CK1 Marine Coatings™ works incredible on boats!
Can CK1 Coatings™ be applied on vinyl wraps and decals?
Yes. For matte and satin vinyl, we recommend using a test area on a small inconspicuous area to make sure the coating doesn’t add too much shine. However, the protective benefits of the coating will remain when applied to vinyl products.
Can CK1 Coatings™ be applied on clear bra?
Yes, CK1 Coatings™ can be applied to the clear bra to enhance its protection and prevent yellowing.
Where can I have CK1 Coatings™ professionally installed?
They’re exclusively offered at a network of dealerships across the country.
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™ has developed two products to enhance and maintain hydrophobicity and shine. They are called Hydro Mist and Hydro Shine and can be purchased online at CK1coatings.com
How do you prepare my vehicle for coatings application?
All paint correction is completed before we apply CK1 Coatings™ to eliminate any scratches, swirl marks and surface contaminants
