Hydrophobic Ceramic Coating by XPEL Now Available

XPEL FUSION PLUS Ceramic Coating is a nano ceramic clear liquid coating that can be applied to paint, glass, vinyl and paint protection films, which provides a fortified layer of vehicle protection. Bonding at a molecular level, the ceramic coating seals and protects vehicle surfaces from environmental contaminants, including pollutants, tree sap and insect acids. XPEL FUSION PLUS shields against harmful UV rays and corrosion. In fact, it helps to reduce the amount of oxidation, which can result in dull, fading paint.

Using a hydrophobic formula, XPEL FUSION PLUS boasts self-cleaning properties to repel water, dirt and grime. It is scratch-resistant and helps protect against swirl marks and minor wash scratches to maintain a sleek, high-gloss finish.


Product Features:

● Protection from UV rays and oxidation
● Hydrophobic Properties
● 4 Year Warranty
● Fine scratch and swirl resistance
● Stain resistant
● Self-cleaning


FUSION PLUS ceramic coating is available now through the XPEL installer network. FUSION PLUS carries a comprehensive warranty package for four (4) years from the date of application, upon registration and when maintained in accordance with warranty terms and conditions.

XPEL FUSION PLUS ceramic coating does not protect against rock chips. This product is intended to be professionally applied and is compatible with vehicle paint or XPEL paint protection film, as well as vinyl wraps and graphics.

Thanks for the info.
My DB9 has XPEL on hood and door edges. Does this need to be removed/repaired before ceramic coating?

No you do NOT take anything off. Ceramic/Quartz/Glass coatings are intended to go on top of the film. ANY paint protection film. And also on top of clear coats. Including the wheels. The coatings will help the film last longer and keep its properties alive for a longer time. Film companies usually warranty their films for up to 10 years. However, gloss levels, self-healing capabilities etc.... will diminish. Films will cloud up due to road contamination the same as your clear coat will. A coating will help prevent that and take the abuse itself.

NOT all coatings are the same. Coatings use organic and inorganic properties and then variants of Silica Dioxide in powder or liquid. How the coatings are developed and manufactured will play a huge part in how they look and react to weather conditions. For instance a coating I use one of them gives predominantly a candy like glass coating over the paint. Another gives a carnauba wax type deep hue to the paint. Combine them in two coats and its a mixture of both of them.

Obviously have not tried XPEL's Coating. However, personally I prefer to stay in the small japanese manufacturers where the chemist actively takes part in all aspects. In the two cases of what I use (they are the best on the market at this time) the chemist is actually the owner. So they must stand by thier products completely.

The two pictures below, show NON filmed clear coat paints that over a 2-3 year period collected a stain type film on the top layer of clear coat. Polishing removes that and you can clearly see the 50/50 line.

CREDIT to Mike Philipps with Autogeek for the two pictures.

Awesome, thanks for choosing XPEL for your DB9. To answer your question, if the film is damaged and you want to get new film before you essentially seal it in with a Ceramic Coating then yes you would want to have the older film removed, have new film installed and then have the coating applied. If the film is in good shape then no need to remove before ceramic coating.

I can say that our coating is made in the USA and is tested over and over again by our engineers. You'll be in good hands with the XPEL film and the XPEL ceramic coating.

Thank you! The film has minor scratches. I will get it replaced and then have the coating applied.
