Ceramic coating for carbon fibre?

This might sound like overkill, but I am looking for a ceramic coating for my carbon frame bike.

I want something to protect the paintwork and the carbon gel coat during the summer months.

Mainly want something with a UV protection, and some gloss there too.

I apply DJ White Diamond on the bike every few weeks at present.

Want to keep the cost around £10-20.

Thanks
Luke

Assuming its painted/clear coated, and given your budget, I see no reason why you could not use gtechic C5 wheel armour.

The product has no idea 'where' it is being used and wheels are subject to pretty harsh conditions, like bikes.

Suspect that 1 bike frame = 1 big-ish wheel in terms of area/coverage

The frame is clear coated, it’s a 3k weave with some painted area’s. I have had carbon on cars and motorbikes before, and I have found over time they go cloudy, all my other road bikes have been painted over the carbon.

I shall have a look at C5.

Look for coatings that have a tested UV inhibitor
