Modern clear coats range between very soft and very hard. In some circumstances, it may even be better to fully wet sand the paint with 3000 – 5000 grit products. This exposes a fresh layer of clear coat to work with. Clearly, this technique is only recommended for highly trained technicians experienced in the processes involved.
In 2017 Final Touch began the process of building relationships with those who sought to set industry-wide standards for detailing to attain to.

Ceramic Paint Coatings
Remove the need for waxes and acts as a sacrificial barrier to the environment and contaminants
Paint, leather and fabric protection are very effective at protecting the long term value and look of your vehicle. However, there are only a few products which will do the miles. Dura-Seal G4 and Optimum OptiCoat Pro & Plus ceramic coatings provide excellent lasting UV protection. Modern ceramic coatings provide a hardened layer to exterior paints, plastics, wheels, and glass. The coatings help to repel environmental contaminants while improving the shine and reflective quality of the paint finish. Price Range: $450 – $850. (MORE)…
Who Are They For
Ceramic coatings are good for people who are short on time, but big on car care. Providing a long-lasting alternative to waxing and polishing routines. Ceramic coatings dramatically cut back washing and drying times. With no need to apply waxes after washing they provide a sacrificial layer for your paint against the environment and contaminants.
The life expectancy of ceramic paint coatings caries from brand to brand and the environment in which they are used. Like any product, some care is required. Regular washing and drying of the paintwork, limited exposure to chemicals etc. On average ceramic paint, coatings can be expected to last between 3-5 years with correct care. This can be extended with a Final Touch paint maintenance package.
Brands We Trust
For over 25 plus years Final Touch has been servicing the car-loving community, and we continue to test all the ceramic paint coatings for the highest-quality finish, gloss, UV and environmental protection, and

Our full UV protection rated restoration processes provide for a safe clear lighted roadway ahead of you. So that you can see and be seen. Our process of restoring headlights includes removing the UV damaged layer of outer coating (it’s on the outside, not the inside like sometimes thought) and plastics to expose a fresh layer on which we apply a UV rated ceramic coating to protect for a minimum of 2 years. Price Range: $90 – $140. (MORE)…
Over time modern plastic headlight lenses become yellowed and faded through car wash chemicals and sunlight UV damage. The degree of damage can vary from light surface clarity issues to full yellowing and a significantly limited throw distance of the lenses.
Equipment We Use
We use modern wet sanding, hand and machine techniques to fully remove UV damaged coatings and light scratches from the headlight lenses. While protecting the integrity of the plastics. We follow this process with the application of a new UV rated headlight lenses coating.
Wet Sanding or Buffing
While you may be tempted to just get a buffing machine and attempt to cut back the damaged lenses coating, consider those plastics heat up very quickly. This process of high heat often leads to ‘burning’ of the plastic lenses. This is why we wet sand the surface to remove all traces of the UV damage. Then bring the surface up to a level where the application of the new coating will form a lasting bond.
Your reconditioned headlight lenses come with an operator application warranty. This warranty covers; that applicator has correctly prepared the lenses by fully removing the damaged coating and applied a new UV rated coating to a high standard of clarity.

Our recommendation is to use a high-quality sealant like DurSeal or OptiCoat Pro, to minimise the need for polishing and waxing. However, when polishing or waxing, ensure the paint surface is cool and the vehicle is away from direct sunlight. Apply in uniform motion following manufacturers directions. Contact us for more information on some of the great new polishes and waxes available.
