ceramic coating After Care
For best results wash on a bi-weekly basis to avoid excessive contamination build up.
Avoid washing in direct sunlight to avoid streaking and water spotting.
Wash top half surface of your vehicle first then move to lower half last, due to all the road grime and dirt accumulates on the lower half. Use the two-bucket wash method with a grit guard at base of all buckets, utilizing only pH balanced soap and ultra-soft microfiber mitt. Use a separate bucket, soap, and wheel woolie for your wheels.
While washing with mitt, never wash in circular fashion, always wash with only front to back motions, remember always start with top half of vehicle first and work from top to bottom. Good rule of thumb, clean your mitt, in your rinse bucket after every panel, to minimize the possibility of scratching and marring paint with your wash mitt.
Little to no pressure necessary to be applied while washing any of our ceramic coated vehicles.
Another great tip, is to purchase a ultra soft detail brush that you can use to clean all the seams, cracks and emblems pieces to help with built up in those areas.
Always dry completely and never leave to“air” dry. Tap water contains minerals that may leave deposits creating water spots.
Using a powerful cordless leaf blower is an effective way to remove water from cracks and door jambs.
You may also use quality microfiber towels and avoid aggressive wiping, allowing the material to glide across the surface and absorb the water.
Never use aggressive products to polish the coating or remove surface contamination.
Never use excessive force to remove spots.
Bird droppings, tar, sap, etc. should be removed as soon as possible to avoid staining or hardening on the coating.
Any staining left behind from the bird droppings will break down over a few days without affecting the coating.
