What is the best ceramic auto coating? What is the difference between different ceramic coating brands in Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights?

What is the best ceramic auto coating? (the answer may surprise you!)

You’re here and expecting us to tell you that in Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights, the best ceramic auto coating is the one that we carry here at Harker Heights Ceramic Coatings! However, that isn’t what we are going to say! 

The best ceramic auto coating is the ceramic coating that works, fits your budget, and lasts as long as you expect it to (with proper care). A quality ceramic coating:

  • Is hydrophobic (the auto coating repels water)
  • Makes vehicle cleanup easier (we don’t want you to have to scrub at your paint to remove bug guts)
  • Enhances the gloss of your vehicle
  • Provides UV resistance (extends the life of your paint)

Why do you not specify the best ceramic auto coating?

Anyone who promises you they have or know what the best ceramic auto coating is, is simply trying to sell you their product. There are THOUSANDS of options out there, and no one can try them all!

However, at Harker Heights Ceramic Coatings, we try EVERY product on our vehicles before we put them on a client’s vehicle. And that goes from ceramic coating, to clear bra, to detailing products, and more! That way, you are confident that you have the best ceramic auto coating – for YOU, and US! Why do we say “us?” Because, we are using the same coatings you are. The same clear bra you are. If we suggest a ceramic coating, it’s because we are also using it. In some cases, for testing purposes, we have multiple types, brands, and lengths of ceramic coating on one vehicle here.

Many ceramic coatings are actually all made in the same place, re-bottled, and re-sold. That’s not bad, assuming they are a good, professional, coating that works (see above)! Just remember that many coating companies are actually marketing companies that sell ceramic coatings. Just because one brand is marketed more than others doesn’t make it better.

What ceramic coating companies have you heard of in the Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights area?

Like we said above, there is no “best ceramic auto coating”, but you may have heard of many of the popular brands. Sometimes, brands like Ceramic Pro, become brand eponyms, which means their name becomes synonymous with the product they are selling. This is because the product is marketed so well, that people mistake a brand name for an actual product. An example everyone knows is Kleenex. We call tissue paper Kleenex, but really that is just a brand name. A similar situation in the detailing industry is to call all clear bra/paint protection film/PPF “Xpel” – but Xpel is simply a brand of film.

So, how do we know what ceramic coating is best to choose from?

Ultimately, there is no single best brand of ceramic auto coating because the choice of a brand depends on several factors such as specific use case, budget, and personal preference. Different brands offer different levels of durability, ease of application, and hydrophobic properties, among others. It is important to consider the desired outcome and do research on the available options to determine the best brand for the specific needs.
