Waxing vs. Ceramic Coating: Why Ceramic is Better

When it comes to car care, ceramic coatings have been taking the industry by storm, but is it better than waxing your car? Simply put, ceramic coatings are making waxing a thing of the past with its increased durability and protection. A ceramic coating is a glass-like protection barrier that protects your car from harsh Canadian weather conditions such as acid rain, snow and ice. It does all of this while increasing the natural shine from your paint and providing a slippery surface which makes it harder for your car to collect dirt and watermarks.

Still not convinced ceramic coatings beat waxing? Let’s see how they stack up to one another as we compare them based on durability and pricing.


First, let’s talk durability. Ceramic coatings are typically much more durable than waxing because it is a chemical bonding process that goes on the surface of your car whereas waxes can flake off and expose sensitive paint to harmful UV rays from sunlight. Wax also needs constant reapplication which means you have to keep coming back for more, where ceramic coatings provide long lasting protection – for example, our Ceramic Pro coatings are guaranteed from anywhere between 2 years and a lifetime, depending on which package you choose.


Second, pricing. Ceramic-based products are much more affordable than waxing services for a few reasons; they really don’t require any regular mail ntenance. The only reason you would have to reapply a ceramic coating is if your car sustains damage, you paint your car, or just want to refresh its look – this rarely happens. While ceramic coatings cost more upfront, they are a one-time service, where waxing is an ongoing service. The savings are obvious when you look at it over the lifetime of your vehicle.

Like we said, waxing your car is a thing of the past. You can now protect it with an advanced and durable coating that provides long-lasting protection. Unlike waxes which require constant reapplication, ceramic coatings last for years without needing to be touched up, making them more affordable and less of a headache in the long run.
