Wax is dead. Nano Ceramic Coating is the next generation in paint protection systems. Experience this new technology that’s designed to form a crystal layer which will make conventional car waxes and sealants obsolete. Its high strength and condensed nanoparticles with superior cross linking abilities create a durable and super high gloss finish.
At Vivë, we have spent the last decade testing and using the latest in nano ceramic coatings the market has to offer, including popular brands such as Ceramic Pro, CQuartz and Opti Coat Pro. Our research and network of reputable detailers gives us the advantage to provide your vehicle with the protection it deserves to withstand the Houston weather. While there are many nano ceramic coating products available in the market today, nothing has provided better performance and protection from environmental elements than Modesta.
As car enthusiasts alike, we understand we have choices and go with what’s best for our car. We have a demand for the best available and we use Modesta specifically because it provides the best looking finish, highest level of durability and the best protective capabilities. Here are four main steps to producing near flawless results:
Modesta is the most exclusive automotive surface protection and nano ceramic coating in the world and only available to select detailers. It is the hardest coating in the world, and the most difficult nano ceramic coating to install correctly, hence why in Houston we are the only authorized detailer capable of applying such an advanced nano ceramic coating. Modesta was designed specifically for those with discerning tastes for its exceedingly rich and glossy finish, as well as its ability to resist the elements and protect like no other.
In a market saturated with nano ceramic coating installers, it has become difficult for consumers to find the “right” installation facility for their vehicle. Despite the wild claims of some manufacturers and installers, here is a chart to help you out:

If the original diagnosis has changed, we will keep you informed throughout the process and recommend a different course of action, if necessary.EXTERIOR DETAILING POLICY: Exterior Detailing services DO NOT include Interior Detail, Overspray Removal, Heavy Paint Defect Removal, Headlight Restoration, Rock Chip Touch-Up and Engine Bay Detail. If the exterior condition of the vehicle is determined as severe (mud, tar, sap, bugs, etc), additional fees may be charged. Please schedule a consultation for the full estimate.
We advise all of our customers not to wash their car for two weeks and let us perform the first wash to make sure the coating was installed and cured correctly.
12-24 hours after your vehicle was coated it can be exposed to water. If wet before that time water should be blown off or safely wiped off before it dries on the surface. No water should touch your vehicle period for at least 2 hours in optimal temperatures.
What many don’t know is that 9H coating hardness have no real world benefits on a painted panel, in fact they are counter productive. As these coatings would be applied on a thin metal and aluminum sheet which are subjected to constantly flexing, surface will expand & contract with heat and hence any harder coating of this nature will easily shatter thereby destroying the glass surface, and with it the durability of the protective layer. However, many will still choose to advertise their 9H coatings because big claims sells regardless of whether these coatings are actually of such hardness. We simply chose to provide real world, real tangible benefits to our users over any unsubstantiated marketing hype. Unknown to many consumers is the fact that making a real 9H coating is actually as simple as ordering different base silica components, just as simple as you could order a paint in a different shade of blue. It is not as if there are some sorts of technical advancements and/or a breakthrough development made by the company(ies) so do not let these hype deceive you. We know these facts because we work closely directly with our manufacturers. Modesta develop, test and manufacture all their coatings in-house and chose NOT TO source products from various sources, based solely on the lowest price point (hence highest margin) and often time with incompatible base materials and try to deceive installers as if they will all work as a “system”, as well as not having any real input of what really goes into a coating themselves. Modesta will only select base materials of the highest grade, and only from the most advanced producers available within Japan, as well the coating lifecycle up-to-date by constantly testing and adopting only the latest and highest tier silica developed in today’s market.
Our packages were designed based on how you care for the vehicle and length of ownership. Ceramic coatings are made of silicon dioxide. The higher the silica content, the glossier the finish and the longer it lasts.
