    I always thought is it either glass or ceramic coating but not both at the same time. Does it make sense to have glass coating on top of ceramic coating?

    Thanks.

    there is another type name silica compound coating which has higher hyperbolic effect... less shining than ceramic

    the hyperbolic effect on windscreen is obvious. The water drop will roll it ways out at the speed of 60 kmh and above. You don't have to switch on wiper. On highway it is a good thing.

    no matter what you coat, you still need to take care... in fact, after coating the requirement to wash the once or twice a week. In fact, more work... If don't take take, the coat will crack and worst when it peel like your skin peeling off. hahaha...

    Actually I asked this question because I saw this sales poster by Alva Coating at Jln 222, PJ. Note the Platinum and Titanium package. They have both ceramic and glass coatings.

    These coats fade very quickly cuz our asses rub if off eventually. But it makes the fabric a little water resistant. Can see beads of water on the fabric.

    I went to f1 Autospa in klang recently for CNY to do mine the 680 package but given price of 612 with 10 percent discount.

    This package includes 2x more polish in the next 8 months for free. And subsequent of the same package costs rm81. They also have coating package for new car.

    It's about rm1 daily to maintain the car for the 2 year warranty period.

    I am very satisfied. My car is entering 5th year with no prior polishing or waxing done before. Still left a few stone chips here and there since I travel penang KL about 1x quarterly.

    Until now I couldn't find a satisfactory car wash in Penang. The one tg tokong besides Starbucks is just too expensive and unclean and suck blood. Haven't even go into their waxing polish package.
