Prior to product application we recommend a full wash/decontamination, clay bar and machine polishing every vehicle before application. After all of this is done you the polish is wiped off you must use our Primer (CPR-3) or a dedicated panel wipe to remove all chemicals, residue and oils before application. The cleaning process is absolutely crucial in order to achieve a long lasting result. The cleaner the paint before coating, the longer the coating will last. Make sure your vehicle is free of all waxes, polishes, or any other paint protectants that may have been applied before. Ensure the paint surface is properly prepped and free of blemishes as any imperfections will be locked in once 9H-LDC has cured. Make sure vehicle is 100% DRY before you start coating. If the coating contacts water during application if will cause immediate curing and hazing.
- Make sure you have several clean microfiber towels at your disposal before application.
- Shake bottle before use.
- We recommend wearing protective gloves to prevent the product drying out your skin.
- Work in a well ventilated and well lit area.
- Only work in 2ft x 2ft sections at a time.
- Dab a few drops onto the supplied applicator pad. Using too little will cause coating to cure prematurely and using too much will waste product.
- Only work in 2ft by 2ft sections at a time.
- Using gentle force, apply on the surface from left to right evenly using a tight circular motion(horizontally). Once that is completed, go over the same section but this time vertically to ensure full coverage.
- Do not excessively rub the coating in as it may accelerate curing.
- Wait for 30-45 seconds until you see the product flashing or "oily lines". Ideal time is dependent on temperature. In hotter climates coating may flash in 20-30 seconds. In colder weather you can work longer with the coating for around 60 seconds.
- Do not wait for over 90 second for the coating to cure.
- GENTLY buff off coating residue using circular motion with microfiber cloth until all of the residue is gone.
- Follow up with another clean microfiber towel to ensure the surface is completely residue free.
- Always buff a few inches further then you coated to ensure you don’t leave any residue behind.
- Check the coated area from several angles to ensure you have not missed any residue. Any residue left behind will leave haze marks that will have to be removed and recoated.
