What is the coating and what does it do?
It is a clear coat filler that covers up damage in the clear coat layer over the paint. It is an effective, fast, and easy solution relative to other options. It increases productivity while having a low cost per vehicle.
What are the key ingredients?
While the proprietary formula is a closely guarded secret, we can disclose that it contains crosslinking resins that are the backbone of the coating. It also contains the same UV inhibitors that are present in modern OEM clear coats.

Why am I not getting the same results as the videos?
We can almost guarantee it boils down to not cleaning out the scratches enough and, or you are pulling the out of the scratches during smooth out.
1. Cleaning not only helps bond but also removes residues that keep from enhancing the pigments. Medium reducer or Lacquer thinner on a clean microfiber will work best.
2. Lightly smooth over and when approaching the problem area. Very lightly let the weight of the microfiber work itself over the scratches allowing the coating to stay in the scratches. Too much pressure may remove from the scratches.
