What happens when you need to de tar, clay and remove fallout from a coated car?? Surely doing this twice a year will diminish the coating??

Broadly speaking ceramic type coatings are inorganic and thus resistant to solvents designed to remove organic (e.g. tar) materials.

Also the reaction for iron fallout removers is mildly acidic, and ceramics are resistant to acids (more so than strong alkali cleaners).

Clay being abrasive will diminish the coating.
