Can you put ceramic coating on windshields?

I have a ceramic coat on the body of my Mazda, and it does a great job repelling dirt and water, so I have been wondering—can you put ceramic coating on windshields?

Yes, you can! A ceramic coating prevents road dirt and grime from sticking to your windshield, and water beads up and slides off—allowing your wipers to do a better job.
This can really improve safety when you are driving in low-visibility situations. Not to mention, a ceramic coating will make your car windows easier to clean and will keep them sparkling longer.
Ceramic coating can be applied to your windshield in a few easy steps. Here’s how:
  • Prep your windshield by washing the glass
    and out, then use a clay detailing bar to smooth out the surface, and wipe it down with a diluted isopropyl alcohol spray solution and a clean microfiber cloth.
    Make sure there are no streaks.
  • To apply the ceramic coating, work in a shady area, and apply the coating in small areas at a time, using a clean microfiber cloth in small, circular motions.
  • Allow the windshield to cure in a sunny spot for 24-48 hours, and then wash the windshield with mild car soap and water. DIY ceramic coatings typically last three to five years. The coating will help protect your car from dirt, water, UV rays, and small scratches, keeping your windshield clear and improving your view when you drive.
