While not scratch-proof, ceramic coatings offer an additional layer of protection against very light scratches. However, for significant impacts, additional protective measures may be recommended.

While there are DIY ceramic coating products, professional application ensures proper surface preparation and even coating. Professional services often result in a more durable and effective application.
