Personal preference and desired outcomes are always important factors in deciding which coating is right for you.
Rapid Ceramic Spray is a quicker, easier spray that requires little preparation work will provide up to three months of protection.
On the other hand, UHD Ceramic Coating is a complete kit that provides the prep, application and finishing products along with the Ceramic Coating product. The prep and application is still straightforward and easy for even those who are new to car care, however it is a longer process. Finally, UHD Ceramic Coating will provide up to twelve months of protection.How is Rapid Ceramic Spray different from other Autoglym waxes and sealants?
Rapid Ceramic Spray provides a durable, high gloss protective finish that’s normally associated with ceramic coatings, though with a quicker, easier application method.
Different protection products and routines have different features and benefits. Choosing which is best for your needs, whether it be durability, ease of maintenance, ease of application or a hybrid of these, is often a personal choice.
A key advantage of Rapid Ceramic Spray is that it can be applied wet or dry. So, if the vehicle is being detailed, the coating can be used as a final, rapid protection stage. If the vehicle is undergoing a routine wash, it can be applied directly after rinsing for an extra layer of protection.How long does it last?
The durability of any coating is impacted by many factors, such as distances and frequency of driving, weather, and climate, products used for after care and how well the surface is prepared prior to application.
If all instructions and recommended guidelines are followed, you can expect Autoglym Rapid Ceramic Spray to provide up to three months of protection.Can Rapid Ceramic Spray be used on glass and plastics?
Rapid Ceramic Spray has been designed specifically for paintwork and colour coordinated plastics only.
We would recommend Rapid Aqua Wax as an alternative suitable for use on glass and plastics, though offers less durability that Rapid Ceramic Spray.How will I know when it is time to reapply?
When the car is cleaned and the surface holds water for more than one minute, this is a sign that Rapid Ceramic Spray should be reapplied.Is there any benefit to multi-layering? Will it increase protection?
It is possible, but there is a limited gain from doing so. If maximum protection and durability are your goals, then we’d recommend UHD Wax or UHD Ceramic Coating, along with regular maintenance wash routines. This is when you can use Rapid Ceramic Spray as a top up.What should I do if I get Rapid Ceramic Spray on glass?
No need to panic; Intensive Tar Remover can be used to remove any Rapid Ceramic Spray accidentally applied or over-sprayed onto glass.What does it protect against?
Rapid Ceramic Spray, as with all Autoglym protection products and routines, creates a tough, protective barrier for maximum resistance against environmental attack on your car’s paintwork.Does it have UV inhibitors?
There is no UV inhibition in the formulation.Which products are compatible with Rapid Ceramic Spray?
Rapid Ceramic Spray is compatible with all of Autoglym’s shampoos and wax products, as well as the Polar Series. We recommend that Pure Shampoo is used as part of your regular on-going wash cycle, and UHD Wax can be used periodically to boost protection and finish throughout the year.
Avoid using any abrasive products such as Super Resin Polish, as well as solvent based products like Intensive Tar Remover as they can reduce the longevity of coating.
If you do need to use these products to take care of a paintwork problem, apply Rapid Ceramic Spray to affected areas afterwards.
We also recommend avoiding hand carwashes that use strong alkali detergents (particularly pre-sprays) as these may impact the durability of Rapid Ceramic Spray.Is it OK to apply Rapid Ceramic Spray in any weather conditions?
Rapid Ceramic Spray should be applied on mild dry weather days with an optimum temperature between 10-25⁰C.How do you recommend applying Rapid Ceramic Spray?

Two to three sprays are sufficient and no more than two on smaller areas. For wet paintwork, the Autoglym InstaDry Drying Towel is perfect for spreading Rapid Ceramic Spray.
Finally, take a clean Hi-Tech Microfibre Finishing Cloth and buff to a high gloss before moving to another area of paintwork. Use additional cloths as required.Is it ok to apply to wet bodywork?
Yes, as long as the bodywork is washed first and Rapid Ceramic Spray is being applied right before the time you’d normally dry the car off.
How long after application should I wait before washing? We recommend that the coating stay dry and not be washed for at least 24 hours after application.What should I do if I accidentally apply product to unpainted plastics on the bodywork?
Any unwanted product should come off with a damp cloth, since it hasn’t had time to bond. If Rapid Ceramic Spray can’t be removed however, Intensive Tar Remover will do the trick.What is the difference between Rapid Ceramic Spray and Rapid Aqua Wax?
Aside from the durability (Rapid Ceramic Spray is up to three months versus Rapid Aqua Wax which is 4-6 weeks), Rapid Ceramic Spray can only be used on bodywork (painted panels and plastics), while Rapid Aqua Wax can be used on glass, except for the windshield.Can I apply polish or wax over Rapid Ceramic Spray?
