Ceramic coating, whether applied by do-it-yourselfers or a professional detailer, is intended to protect the surface where it is applied. While nanotechnology allows it to penetrate scratches and imperfections in porous materials,it does not fill in swirl marks or scratches to remove them.

Do ceramic coatings prevent scratches?
Ceramic coatings do provide some scratch resistance 鈥?it just isn鈥檛 because of their hardness like many people believe. It鈥檚 quite likely that wiping dirt or dust off a coated surface will result in fewer scratches than one that isn鈥檛 coated at all. But that isn鈥檛 because it makes the paint harder. It鈥檚 all about deflection.
What can I use to fill in scratches on ceramic paint?
Technically, anything you wipe on your paint has the potential to fill in minor scratches and swirl marks. This doesn鈥檛 happen often with most ceramic coatings though. Waxes, sealants, and especially glazes are much more likely to fill in minor imperfections in your paint.
How does ceramic coating work on paint?
In a very specific way. A ceramic coating will make the surface of the paint extremely slick and create high water contact angles. What this does it allow the dirt and debris on your paint to be less embedded in the paint, meaning it takes less effort to remove, thus less chance for that debris to damage the paint when removing.
Does coating prevent scratches on paint?
While it will offer some protection against finer scratches, swirl marks, and wash marring, it will not eliminate the risk of your paint being scratched. Your vehicle can and will be scratched by many of the same objects even if it鈥檚 coated.
