Ceramic coat on top of PPF DIY

I plan on installing full front and side doors PPF and apply ceramic coat afterward. Question I have is it okay to use the standard ceramic application on top of the PPF and the regular paint on the back side of my car?

I currently bought the CarPro Cquartz, but I just found out that there are other different type of ceramics for different materials such as vinyl, ppf, etc. I don't want to buy another set of ceramic coat if it is unnecessary.

You are correct in there are 2 versions carpro makes. I think skin, is the ppf version. That said. I costed my whole car myself with cquk3.0 except the front bumper, I then had the front bumper ppf’d and afterwards coated it with uk3.0 as well. Looks great...don’t know if the ppf version would have garnered better results.

I asked guys who did PPF on my car about ceramic wax (Chemical Guys), and I was told it is okay, but since the PPF has been coated with a sealer, using ceramic coating, at least for the next 6 months, is basically a waste of time and money.
