Does Armor Shield IX Hide Swirl Marks and Scratches?Updated a year ago

One of the many myths “swirling around” is that ceramic coatings do an excellent job of hiding existing swirl marks and scratches. Like your weird uncle's hair, this, too, is completely fake.

A ceramic coating amplifies the condition of whatever surface it coats. So, if you have tons of swirl marks and scratches, they will become all the more noticeable after applying a layer of Armor Shield IX.

This is why it is crucial to have all necessary paint corrections, surface imperfections, and clear coat damage attended to prior to installing a nano-ceramic coating. Once these issues have been attended to, a ceramic coating will help reduce the risk of swirl marks and surface scratches forming.
