Protecticoat is made to restore the color and shine to oxidized surfaces. The product will fill surface pores and seal them off for future protection. Protecticoat is made with the maximum amount of UV protection to reduce damage from the sun. For the application to take place, the surface only needs to be cleaned and dried. Sure, you can use a ceramic coating on surfaces that have been oxidized, but several steps are needed to buff and prep the surfaces first.
