  1. Top 10 Best Ceramic Spray Coatings ranked by Ceramic Coat Expert

 

Are ceramic coating sprays the best product for that? Well, that depends. Do you like renting that tux so you look nice once or do you like to buy yourself a nice suit and wear it more often?

If it is the rented tux then ceramic sprays are for you, but if it is the latter then we suggest sticking to regular ceramic coating.

 

Now, recently we've got a few angry emails from our readers about how we are misleading our readers by telling them how Ceramic Spray Coatings are the real deal while they are not.


A true Ceramic Coating cannot be stored in a plastic bottle because it would react with it on a molecular level and it would ruin the product. This is why true ceramic coating products are all stored in glass bottles.

 

That is true. But it is also true that we have never had such claims. In fact, we have been strong anti-supporters of Ceramic Spray Coatings from the start and we still are. We have been telling you how these products are not the real deal and how marketing can be a tricky and slippery slope that we all have to find our balance on.

We didn't name these products 'Ceramic Spray Coatings'. But we all do know them by that name. That is the only reason why we are using the world ceramic alongside those plastic spray bottled products. If it were to us we would most likely just call them 'sealants'. That is it. But it is not up to us, so we call them as everyone else calls them. So, are Ceramic Spray Coatings true Ceramic Coatings? No, they are most certainly not.

But. Do they have a place in the detailing industry? Well, yes. They give you some sort of protection, while it is horrible compared to a true ceramic coating, it does come with a few benefits:

  • it is easy to apply

  • it is much cheaper than a true ceramic coating

  • and you get more product quantity for more uses


And with all that, will they protect your car as a true ceramic coating would? Of course not. But, again, there are some good ones in this category too. And some not-so-good ones really.


That is why we took the time to test each one and we have ranked them for you to see which one is good and which one simply blows.

When it comes to long-term and high-quality solutions to protect the paint on their automobiles, all those "wonderful, unequaled, and greatest goods" appear quite alluring to individuals who are unfamiliar with Ceramic Coatings or Paint Protection choices in general. That is natural, and it is the essence of marketing.


All you need to know is that you're not receiving a traditional Ceramic Coating, or even what you'd expect a Ceramic Coating to be, but rather a substantially weakened form of one.


'Is Ceramic Coating Spray a Scam?' you might wonder. No, that would most likely be inflated as well. We're not here to inflate things to fit our story; instead, we're here to provide honest assessments of those items and how they work in real-world situations.

Top 10 Best Ceramic Spray Coatings ranked by Ceramic Coat Expert:


 

1. System X Renew Ceramic Spray Coating

System X Renew Ceramic Spray Coating

How we have graded this product:

  • product life time when applied: B

  • resistance to elements: C

  • resistance to damage: E

  • resistance to chemicals: B

  • application difficulty: B

  • hydrophobic properties: B

  • gloss / shine: B

Average grade: B


Cost: 3.49$ / 1 fl oz

0.12$ / 1 ml

So with Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Spray Coating dethroned we have a new king on top of this list! Let us introduce you to System X Renew Ceramic Spray Coating!


To be honest, we have barely heard of it before we ordered it and had it tested. It was kinda there in the background, but if it weren't for you readers we would have missed this gem. It tested amazingly! The biggest flaw with spray-on ceramic coating products is that they wash off so easily. Some even with plain water. Yikes! But this one, we kept punishing with soap wash after soap wash and it endured and endured. It certainly did fail at one point. But man, it puts even some true ceramic coatings to shame. Certainly an impressive product. It does come with the biggest price tag out of the lot but again, it is cheaper than a true ceramic coating. You still get the ease of application benefit. Even though this one is a tad bit harder to apply. Nothing too hard though. And you can use it on a few vehicles. Or cover yours a couple of times before you run out of product.

We suggest you stick with the 16 oz bottle as it is the most economical option. And the spray coating will last you a while. No need for you to use it up in a certain amount of time. We would still favor a true ceramic coating because it still offers more and most importantly it will last you much much longer. But if you do not want to spend the money or do not have all the prerequisites to ceramic coat a car yourself, then System X Renew Ceramic Spray Coating is the product for you!

2. Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Spray Coating

|turtle wax ceramic spray coating

How we have graded this product:

  • product life time when applied: C

  • resistance to elements: E

  • resistance to damage: E

  • resistance to chemicals: C

  • application difficulty: A

  • hydrophobic properties: B

  • gloss / shine: C

Average grade: C


Cost: 0.94$ / 1 fl oz

0.03$ / 1 ml

2nd place, we still have ourselves our good old Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Spray Coating! It performed amazingly then, and it still performs amazingly now. And for the price you pay for it - this one might easily take number one. But we chose quality, and System X simply is the better product when it comes to that. This one astonished us with its capacity to withstand heavier chemicals, something that many Ceramic Spray Coatings appear to lack. It repels water well and is a smart and quick solution to preserve your vehicle's paint if you're in a rush or don't have the time or circumstances to coat the surface with professional Ceramic Coating.


In all of those circumstances, this will suffice, and it will last a long time and withstand at least a few washes! Without a doubt, one of the greatest Spray-On Ceramic Coatings we've ever worked with.


The amount you obtain is perhaps the nicest feature of Ceramic Spray Coatings. This one comes in a 16-ounce bottle, providing it with a better quantity-to-price ratio than the rest of the pack. If you only care about getting the job done fast and don't mind if the protection lasts a long time and protects your automobile as well as it possibly can, this product is highly recommended by us!

3. 303 Graphene Nano Spray Coating

303 Graphene Nano Spray Coating

How we have graded this product:

  • product life time when applied: C

  • resistance to elements: C

  • resistance to damage: E

  • resistance to chemicals: C

  • application difficulty: A

  • hydrophobic properties: C

  • gloss / shine: D

Average grade: C


Cost: 2.08$ / 1 fl oz

0.07$ / 1 ml

At number 3 we have ourselves again a new entry - 303 Graphene Nano Spray Coating!


303 is a giant in the paint protection industry and they have been around for almost half a century. That had a lot of time for research and creating some amazing products. And, well... they did create some amazing products - and 303 Graphene Nano Spray Coating is one of them. It deals amazingly with the greatest flaw of ceramic coating sprays - resistance to chemicals. The coating sticks and soldiers on for a long time before you start noticing a decline in performance.


It won't cost you that much and if the above products are not available, then this one will certainly make you happy. And we are happy to put our name behind it for a recommendation.

The only flaw that we could tell was the graphene part. Whether graphene does anything to improve the quality of ceramic spray coatings or ceramic coatings in general remains to be seen. We certainly have our opinion about graphene coatings and you can read all about it here. But it is not that part that we consider a flaw, but instead, the part where they are a bit harder to apply part of all graphene-infused coatings. The kind of sludginess that comes with them and the blackness that they leave on the applicators and towels. They tend to be harder to buff off as well.


All that put aside, this product performed excitingly well in our testing and we have been pleasantly surprised. Keep in mind that we have tried a lot of different products and brands and when we say that something is above good, then that definitely means something.

4. Adam’s UV Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating

adam's ceramic coating spray

How we have graded this product:

  • product life time when applied: C

  • resistance to elements: D

  • resistance to damage: E

  • resistance to chemicals: C

  • application difficulty: A

  • hydrophobic properties: B

  • gloss / shine: B

Average grade: C


Cost: 2.37$ / 1 fl oz

0.08$ / 1 ml


Adam’s UV Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating was the second-best product we had on the previous list. It had a bit of a fall. But it still stands strong at the top end of the top list of best ceramic spray products we have tested and reviewed so far.


The graphene element of the marketing approach is probably what pushed the price up into the stratosphere, and this product would probably sell much better if it was just called 'Adam's Ceramic Spray Coating,' period, without the fancy jargon. The fact is that graphene if it adds any value to the product, does so in a minor way.


Who knows, it might be exacerbating the problem. The 'Glow' technology, which can be used with a UV lamp or any UV light source to monitor which parts of the automobile have already been coated, set this product apart from its competitors. That function is very beginner-friendly, but it might be pricey if you don't have the necessary equipment.


This one comes in a 12 oz bottle, which is likely the only reason it isn't at the top of the list. Once you get the hang of it, it's quite simple to deal with, and the coating's lifetime will be far above normal for Spray-On Ceramic Coating goods.

5. Nexgen Ceramic Spray

Nexgen Ceramic Spray

How we have graded this product:

  • product life time when applied: D

  • resistance to elements: E

  • resistance to damage: E

  • resistance to chemicals: C

  • application difficulty: A

  • hydrophobic properties: C

  • gloss / shine: C

Average grade: C


Cost: 2.75$ / 1 fl oz

0.09$ / 1 ml

Nexgen Ceramic Spray was probably the most recommended product for us to review and it did ok. It placed itself at the middle of the pack being neither very good nor very bad. If the price on it was a bit lower it might have been further up the list. We feel it is well-placed meaning that if you decide to go for this product you will not be amazed, but more importantly, you will not be disappointed or left feeling scammed.


We cannot really tell you what its best feature is, apart from how easy it is to work with. It is a well-rounded product. We definitely suggest you read the full review of the product we made earlier. We do hope that with the next iteration of the product Nexgen will absorb all the feedback they got from consumers and they will make an even better product.

6. Mothers CMX Ceramic Spray Coating

mothers CMX Ceramic Spray Coating

How we have graded this product:

  • product life time when applied: D

  • resistance to elements: D

  • resistance to damage: E

  • resistance to chemicals: E

  • application difficulty: A

  • hydrophobic properties: C

  • gloss / shine: D

Average grade: D


Cost: 0.58$ / 1 fl oz

0.02$ / 1 ml


Mothers have been around for a long time and have produced some incredible things. This one, on the other hand, isn't something they'd be proud of. It may be sold in that manner, but don't be tricked. Is it worthwhile to purchase? We wouldn't suggest it, but if you already have it or can't find anything better, and you truly want a quick and easy paint protection treatment, we guess you may try it. If you know what you're purchasing, it's not a complete waste of money.


The issue with these items is that they are surrounded by so much hype that they raise their customers' expectations to ridiculous heights, only to be disappointed when they do not perform as promised. This is still a possible choice if you are aware of all of this.



With a huge 24 ounces bottle, Mothers CSC is definitely among the best bang for your buck among Spray-On Coatings. Wow. That is unquestionably worthwhile. We can recommend it if you don't mind using it a little more frequently than other products, such as after each wash or every second wash, depending on the vehicle shampoo you're presently using. If you're going to use Ceramic Spray Coatings, we still recommend going with a superior alternative.

7. The Last Coat - Premium Ceramic Spray Coating

The Last Coat Ceramic Spray Coating

How we have graded this product:

  • product life time when applied: C

  • resistance to elements: D

  • resistance to damage: F

  • resistance to chemicals: D

  • application difficulty: B

  • hydrophobic properties: D

  • gloss / shine: C

Average grade: D


Cost: 2.23$ / 1 fl oz

0.08$ / 1 ml

The Last Coat Ceramic Spray was also among the top-recommended products by you guys for us to test and review. And, well it didn't do that great. There are certainly better ceramic spray products out there. Does that mean it is horrible? Well, no, not really. It had below-average performance, it was a bit harder to work with. And it costs above average compared to the rest of the contenders on the list. They certainly might be onto something with the product and if they play their cards well it might be a platform to create something better in the future. The thing they probably shouldn't touch is the gloss/shine it provides. We think it does pretty well in that category spray-on coating. Or, who knows, maybe they can just further enhance it to make it stand out more among the competition!

8. Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax

meguiars hybrid ceramic wax

How we have graded this product:

  • product life time when applied: D

  • resistance to elements: D

  • resistance to damage: F

  • resistance to chemicals: E

  • application difficulty: C

  • hydrophobic properties: C

  • gloss / shine: B

Average grade: D


Cost: 0.74$ / 1 fl oz

0.03$ / 1 ml


You've probably come across the term Meguiars if you've done any research on the automotive detailing industry. They are most likely one of the most well-known car detailing brands available. And with good cause - they do offer some incredible things, but let's face it... They also have some fantastic marketing. That is something you just cannot overlook.


To be honest, it performed just as expected. It has strong water-repelling capabilities and provides a considerable degree of shine while on your car's paint. The issue is that even the smallest bit of detergent will remove it. To have a chance of lasting, you'd have to use the more expensive pH-neutral vehicle shampoos. When working with this product, frequent applications are necessary.


Now, to be fair, this product wasn't advertised as it was doing more than it said it would or that it would perform miracles. So we still have our respect for Meguiar's. While this product might not be the best from their line, they do have some truly amazing products for different tasks, and if you are doing any car detailing we are sure you know which products we are referring to.


With a 26 ounce container, it's certainly at the top in terms of quantity provided, but two coatings are required to be effective as claimed, and that isn't much, essentially reducing those 26 ounces to 13. Furthermore, the unusual application of the second layer is a dubious and likely inefficient technique that degrades the quantity you obtain even more. When you combine it with the high price associated with the brand name, you have a product that we would not recommend to our readers.


This product is nothing more than a Car Sealant really, and Meguiars would be better off advertising it as such and excluding the word "Ceramic" from the product name. A Sealant would be in the middle between a Car Wax and a Ceramic Coating, and they have the word "hybrid" in there... odd.


Meguiar's makes several fantastic products, but the Hybrid Ceramic Wax isn't one of them.

9. SHINE ARMOR Fortify Quick Coat

SHINE ARMOR Fortify Quick Coat

How we have graded this product:

  • product life time when applied: E

  • resistance to elements: E

  • resistance to damage: D

  • resistance to chemicals: E

  • application difficulty: A

  • hydrophobic properties: C

  • gloss / shine: C

Average grade: D


Cost: 2.49$ / 1 fl oz

0.08$ / 1 ml


Shine Armor, oh my! If you're into car detailing and haven't heard of Shine Armor, you've probably been living under a rock. Shine Armour has been heard of and was maybe utilized by everyone and their grandmothers at some point in their lives.


The excitement around this device could most likely recharge a dead vehicle battery and convert it into a nuclear reactor. They have the finest advertisements, they're everywhere, they have the nicest packaging, and their purple-colored liquid is easily identifiable. Except for the goods they're selling, they have the finest of everything.


Is it effective? Yes, of course. You may spray it on and rub it off immediately away, or you can wait a little longer if you like. It becomes smooth almost instantaneously, and you can test it by placing the bottle on top of the coated surface and seeing if it slides down. We've tried it several times and it actually works. However, some of the claims made by this firm about what their device can or can't accomplish are plainly absurd. It can be removed with one or two washes of standard inexpensive vehicle shampoo. And, unless you want to harm the paint on our car, the wash-less function they promote is perhaps just plain foolish. 'Cleaning' the paint by dragging dirt and other particles across it is a formula for disaster. While you're doing it, you may as well use sandpaper instead of a microfiber towel.


Shine Armor also says that this is beneficial for conserving water. You could fill a swimming pool with this stuff before cutting your losses, considering how much it costs.


Considering how eco-friendly everything is of late and the water laws in some countries - a touchless wash might seem like a great idea. But even if it worked well, damaging your car's paint with scratches and swirl marks is simply not worth it.


SHINE ARMOR costs an absurd amount of money. Probably the highest price you can pay for a product with just 8 Fl Oz of packaging!!! When you compare that to the 24 or 26 fluid ounces that the goods above this one on the list provided, it's clear that this is ludicrous. You could be thinking, "Well, if the product is good, it's still worth paying," but it isn't. Apart from its attractive design, color, pleasant grapey aroma, and the one-trick pony that comes with the slippery bottle, this product offers nothing else.


There is a more superior, less expensive, and more cost-effective product available. SHINE ARMOUR, as a result of all of this, earns the last slot on our list. We do not suggest this product to our readers, or anybody else for that matter.


After all of this, and after reading the entire review, you could still be thinking, "They're just haters." or something like that. However, in such a case, we dare you to purchase the product and put it to the test!


Wait! After all the beating Shine Armor took, it wasn't placed at the bottom of the list? But how, what could be worse than that? We are glad you've asked.

10. Ethos Resist Graphene Ceramic Coating Spray

Ethos Resist Graphene Ceramic Coating Spray

How we have graded this product:

  • product life time when applied: E

  • resistance to elements: E

  • resistance to damage: E

  • resistance to chemicals: E

  • application difficulty: A

  • hydrophobic properties: E

  • gloss / shine: D

Average grade: E


Cost: 2.37$ / 1 fl oz

0.08$ / 1 ml

Enter Ethos Resist Graphene Ceramic Coating Spray! So, how do we even describe it? Remember Shine Armor Fortify Coat? Yes, take that and downgrade it even further. Give it a different color. No nice grapey smell. And there you have it!


We do not know what happened with this product really. Was it miscommunication in the development process where the development team was saying 'this product is horrible, do not market it until we fix it' and management heard 'yes, yes, this product is amazing! let's produce it ASAP!'. It is truly a mystery.


We mean, it is a coating product that promotes hydrophobicity more than anything else. And it doesn't have it. Barely anyway. After even a double application. The day after it had no more sickness and no more hydrophobic properties at all. And the only thing that attacked it was a mild overnight rain.


We mean, we get it. Rain can also have a higher pH value making it acidic. But really? What is the point? Are you supposed to apply this product every day or any time you take the car for a spin? Ethos Resist Graphene Ceramic Coating Spray is truly one of the worst ceramic spray coatings we have tried in our career. It is worse than many waxes and sealants that we have tried as well. We do definitely do not recommend it and suggest you keep your hard-earned money for a product that will actually do as advertised, at least that anyway. Why anyone would want to buy this product is simply beyond us. We don't know, maybe you are just crazy. Or you told everyone that you are going to buy the worst carp ceramic spray coatings have to offer and that nobody can stop you! We bear no hate towards Ethos, and if their product performed better, they would certainly sit higher on the list. But it is at it is. We bought it, we have tested it and the results spoke for the product better than anything else could.

That concludes our Top List of all the Ceramic Spray Coating we've examined on our site.


Stay away from bad products and go for nothing below quality. We hope that our testing gives car detailing products the name they deserve. Whether it is good or bad. Because when someone new to such products looks at them, they will mostly promise similar things and how are they to know which products are genuine and which ones are trash-tier. Well, they cannot. They have to take a leap of faith and get what they get. This is why we like to do these real-world tests.

We'll definitely consider compiling a Top 15 or perhaps a Top 20 list of Ceramic Spray Coatings because there are so many, and we've utilized and tested most of them. So, even without rigorous testing and written reviews, we might reasonably put them in order to rate them fairly among themselves.


Please let us know if you'd like that! You can always email us at ceramiccoatexpert@gmail.com or contact us via one of our social media groups!

We hope that this easy-to-read and navigate-through list was useful and that it has provided you with a greater understanding of this ever-growing business.


As long as vehicles exist, there will be items designed to keep them looking new and fresh for as long as possible. We'll be there to help you through it all.



Cheers!
