You can't use ceramic on film but Gtechniq brought out a PPF specific hydrophobic coating called Halo. Very simple to use, quite similar to using a regular sealant really only in smaller sections. Could easily use it at home.

Some PPF's have a hydrophobic coating built in though.

As far as after care, any Si02 based detail spray will be fine and any pH balanced chemicals will be grand for washing

Perfect thanks for the heads up on that,

Im looking at a car thats been detailed and ceramic coated in the last 6 months. At that time it had XPEL PPF applied and then Kamikaze Surface Film Coating over the top? Is this just hydrophobic then I take it?

Yea just hydrophobic, XPEL is a self healing PPF so your all good on that front. Anachem Hybrid will be spot on with it and if you use articulate just dilute to to half the strength you normally would :grinning:
