1st time using this was very intimidated by the fact this is a true ceramic coating and what I’ve read. 5h-6h level Harding and will last around a year from what I understand. It took me 3 days to prep the car but I washed it, decontaminated the paint, clay bared, paint corrected the paint and now it’s time to apply this. It starts flashing (rainbow effect) about 30-45 seconds in and then you wait 2-3 minutes and wipe it off. It was so easy to apply and wipe off I actually called JaxWax cause I thought I did something wrong? Turns out it actually is this user friendly. As in mist spray and wipe waxes if not easier. The only difference is I did the whole front end waited 3 mins and wiped it off, then the drivers side and so on. I definitely want to go 9h Ceramic coating but this definitely got me in the door and once I finish this I will step it up. Also this is a great topper or if your car is new would make for an excellent protectant. I haven’t got to really test how strong it is but then again, I’m not gonna go sliding my car keys across the hood either. I think this is gonna be my new wax. I guess it is the new wax or coating of the future! Highly recommend and please do not be intimidated like I was, a three or I could do this!!!
