Migliore Strata Ceramic Coating Review

Migliore Strata Ceramic Coating

We’re living in an exciting era for auto enthusiasts. Not long ago, the extent of DIY car care was limited to applying wax. Today, the landscape has dramatically changed, offering enthusiasts a plethora of options in terms of brands and types of products right at their fingertips. This variety allows enthusiasts to customize their car care routines to a greater degree, ensuring that they can achieve the exact results they desire.

Migliore Strata Ceramic Coating exemplifies the convenience and effectiveness that make at-home detailing an appealing choice for enthusiasts. Rather than spending thousands of dollars on professional auto detailing services and enduring days without your vehicle, companies like Migliore offer professional-grade ceramic coatings that can be applied in the comfort of your own garage. This allows enthusiasts to achieve professional results while saving time and money, making at-home detailing a practical and rewarding option.

Certainly, not all professional-grade ceramic coatings available to DIYers are created equal. Some are exceptional, some are average, and some fall short of expectations. With the market offering a plethora of brands, choosing the right one can be overwhelming. As auto enthusiasts and detailing experts, we take the initiative to test these products and thoroughly evaluate each factor that determines whether a product is a worthwhile investment or a waste of money. Our goal is to provide valuable insights and guidance to help you make informed decisions about which products will best suit your needs and deliver the results you desire. That being said, let’s put Migliore Strata Coating to the test. 

Who is Migliore?

Established in 2008, the company is relatively new to the market but has quickly gained a reputation for innovation. The founder began by experimenting with making his own carnauba wax, a natural wax derived from palm leaves, and shared his findings on auto enthusiast forums. This grassroots approach helped him refine his products and build a loyal following. Today, the company offers a range of 22 high-quality car care products, showcasing their dedication to craftsmanship and passion for automotive detailing.

Migliore has deliberately chosen to focus on small-scale distribution, a strategy often favored by enthusiast-focused companies. Unlike mass-produced products found on typical brick-and-mortar shelves, Migliore’s approach ensures a higher level of quality and exclusivity. For many enthusiasts, mass production can imply a reduction in product quality or integrity. Migliore’s commitment to maintaining this level of craftsmanship is rare and commendable in an industry where many brands opt to cash out by selling their brand to larger corporations.

What is Migliore Strata Ceramic Coating?

Migliore Strata Ceramic Coating is renowned for its ability to deliver a high gloss finish, leaving your vehicle looking exceptionally sleek and vibrant. The coating’s advanced formula not only enhances the appearance of your car’s paint but also creates a silky smooth surface that feels luxurious to the touch. This smooth finish not only looks fantastic but also helps to repel dirt and grime, making your car easier to clean and maintain.

One of the standout features of Migliore Strata Ceramic Coating is its hydrophobic properties, which means that it repels water with ease. This hydrophobic effect causes water to bead up and roll off the surface of your vehicle, preventing water spots and helping to maintain the coating’s high gloss finish. Additionally, the hydrophobic nature of the coating makes it easier to clean your car, as dirt and debris are less likely to adhere to the surface.

Despite its professional-grade performance, Migliore Strata Ceramic Coating is surprisingly easy to use, making it an excellent choice for both novice and experienced detailers alike. The coating can be applied using a simple application process, and its fast-curing formula means that you can enjoy the benefits of a ceramic coating in no time. Overall, Migliore Strata Ceramic Coating offers an unbeatable combination of high gloss, smoothness, hydrophobicity, and ease of use, making it a top choice for car enthusiasts looking to protect and enhance the appearance of their vehicles.


As far as overall strength goes, Migliore Strata Ceramic Coating comes in at a 7 out of 10. However, Migliore doesn’t claim an “H” rating on this ceramic coating. So, how do we determine the level of strength? In order to determine strength without a Hardness scale, we look at performance. 

Strata Ceramic Coat’s strength is evident in its impressive water repellency. The coating rapidly repels water, causing it to sheet off the surface even in heavy rain, snow, or sleet. Unlike lesser coatings that can become overloaded, leading to slowed water sheeting, Strata remains resilient. This means that no matter how intense the rainfall, Strata doesn’t give water a second to puddle, showcasing its durability and effectiveness in adverse weather conditions.

Strata Ceramic Coating’s repellency extends beyond water to dirt and other contaminants, maintaining a high level of protection throughout its lifespan. The coating creates an incredibly glossy layer of ceramic particles that offer no mercy to contaminants, ensuring that nothing sticks to the paintwork. This means you can easily keep your car clean by simply rinsing away dirt and debris, thanks to Strata’s exceptional repellent properties.


Given its strength, we anticipate that the product will hold up well over time. However, it’s worth noting that Stara is rated as a 12+ month coating, suggesting that its performance might start to diminish before a full year has passed. Due to this relatively shorter lifespan compared to some other coatings, we’ve rated Strata Coating a 4 out of 10 on the longevity scale.

If you’re unfamiliar with the longevity of professional-grade DIY ceramic coatings, they are typically advertised as lasting for about five years. Therefore, a coating that only lasts for one year, or possibly two if it’s on a sports car that’s rarely driven and stored in a garage, can be somewhat disappointing in comparison. 

How To Use Strata Coating

Migliore Strata Ceramic Coating is relatively easy to use. The bottle comes with an applicator pad, so all you need to supply for yourself are gloves and microfiber towels. Migliore recommends washing your car with a citrus based shampoo. You want to remove any prior waxes or sealants before you start. If any contaminants or waxes are left behind, the Strata Coating will not adhere to your panels properly.

To apply Strata Coating, begin by dabbing a small amount onto the applicator pad. Working in 2 ft by 2 ft sections, apply the coating in a cross-hatch pattern to ensure even coverage. After filling in your first section, wait approximately 60 seconds to allow the coating to set. Then, buff the section with a clean microfiber towel to remove any excess coating and enhance the finish. Repeat this process until each panel of your vehicle is fully coated. Finally, avoid driving or exposing your vehicle to the elements for at least 7 hours after application is complete to allow the coating to cure properly.

While I’m satisfied with the strength of Migliore Strata Ceramic Coating, I’m disappointed with how quickly it breaks down. Upon closer examination of each factor, the pricing now makes more sense. Initially, we believed it was underpriced, especially considering its overall strength. However, with the coating lasting only about one year, its longevity is just above that of a high-end ceramic spray. Now, considering the pricing, Strata is appropriately priced between a ceramic spray and the average five-year professional-grade ceramic coating.

Overall, the value of Migliore Strata Ceramic Coating rates a 5 out of 10. If I had to choose, I’d opt for a quality ceramic spray over this product. When investing in a thorough cleaning and paint correction, it’s worth considering spending slightly more for a five-year coating. Currently priced at $89.95, Strata Ceramic Coating doesn’t offer great value for its durability and performance.

Custom Service

Customer service is a crucial aspect of any company, and in this regard for Migliore Ceramic, I would give a 7 out of 10. The representatives are knowledgeable and helpful. I was able to get all of my questions answered in a timely manner, and overall it was a friendly and comfortable experience. 

Here is what takes their customer service rating down from a 10 to a mere 7. You can’t talk to a live person, and there isn’t a chatbox for assistance. The only way to reach customer service is to fill out the “Contact Us” form on their website and wait for someone to reach out. In my experience, it takes a few hours for someone to contact you. Personally, I like talking on the phone more with someone who understands the coating and won’t take much time communicating back and forth. While I don’t prefer the method of contact, the overall experience was good.


I had high hopes for the Migliore Strata Ceramic Coating going into this test, especially impressed by its strength. Even with its value being a bit low, it’s still one of the better ceramic coatings I’ve used that’s available to at home detailers. In fact I’d say this one makes the top 10, even with its shorter lifespan. From an enthusiast’s viewpoint, I see potential in Migliore Strata Ceramic Coating. If Migliore were to refine this coating in their lab, it could become a true contender. 

While Strata may not score high in terms of value due to its relatively short lifespan, it boasts numerous benefits that set it apart from many other ceramic coatings on the market. Its exceptional strength, combined with its high-functioning repellency abilities, creates an extremely glossy and hydrophobic finish. Moreover, Strata maintains its effectiveness relatively consistently throughout its lifespan, making it a strong contender for those seeking a durable and high-performance ceramic coating for their vehicle.
