Answers for General Questions about Products

Nanotech Crystal Car Coating Preparation

Do I need extra prep work for brand new car?

If the car is new or fairly new a proper wash and an IPA wipe-down would be more then enough to properly prepare the surface before the application.

Should I buff my car prior to the application?

Please use a de-greaser or a wax remover prior to the application. IPA wipe-down just before the application is recommended as well to ensure no greasy or wax residue is left on the surface.

I waxed my car recently. How do I prepare the car for the ceramic coating application?

Please use a de-greaser or a wax remover prior to the application. IPA wipe-down just before the application is recommended as well to ensure no greasy or wax residue is left on the surface.

Nanotech Crystal Car Coating Application

Can I do the process in an open area?

You can do the coating process in an open environment, just make sure there is no high winds with debris flying all around and that you don’t do the application process in direct sunlight or on an extremely hot day as the coating will start drying too fast and you won’t have enough time to buff properly.

What kind of safety equipment should be used when applying?

We recommend wearing safety gloves when applying.

A mask is recommended for applications in closed or very poorly ventilated areas.

Can I coat my windshield and side windows?

We do not recommend to use this product to coat windshield and side windows. You could use nanotech crystal glass coating to coat them. Then you will get better super hydrophobic effect.

How do I apply Nanotech Crystal Car Coating?

  • 1. Please use car shampoo and water to clean the grease, contamination and dirt on car body. Then dry it with microfiber towel. If there are hologram, swirls or micro scratches, please use polisher and polishing compound to remove them first, then use microfiber to clean.
  • 2. Using air-laid paper to wrap a sponge applicator.
  • 3. Dropping several drops of crystal car coating to wet the dust-free paper.
  • 4. Use the sponge applicator to wipe crystal car coating liquid evenly on car body. Please wipe 30x30cm area in both horizontal and vertical direction each time.
  • 5. Following on using a damp microfiber cloth to rub the treated area immediately until there are no visible moving traces or strips.
  • 6. Repeat above steps on next area.
  • 7.Leave the coated car to dry naturally. The surface of coating layer needs to dry at least 4-6 hours. So please avoid touching or wet ting coated in next 6 hours. After 48 hours of application, could wash the car as usual.
  • At last, do not forget to seal and tighten the bottle for future use.

Does humidity affect the application?

High humidity can affect the application process. It is recommended to avoid application in high air humidity conditions or to decrease the waiting time between applying and wiping off and buffing the coating by double or triple (so if the recommended time for your outside temperature is 2 minutes, in high humidity conditions wait 1 minute before wiping down and buffing).

Should I use the same coated sponge, spreading microfiber, and polishing microfiber for the entire car?

It is advised to use different parts of the same microfiber cloth on each section of the car and changing to a new provided microfiber cloth once you run out of room on one. For buffing, the same practice is recommended but you can change less often then for the application.

Should I apply Nanotech Crystal Car Coating to the entire exterior of the vehicle at once then allow it to dry?

No very important! The application of Nanotech Crystal Car Coating should be done on a around 15x15inches (around 30x30cm) at a time (e.g. hood, fender, trunk) ensuring complete coverage and reducing the possibility of letting the product dry too long.

What happens if I miss a spot while applying?

Missed spots can be fixed easily. Just apply more Nanotech Crystal Car Coating to the missed area that was missed, then buff off. It will level itself with the previously treated surface on its own.

How long does it take to dry?

Nanotech Crystal Car Coating will be dry to touch within 4-6 hours, at which point the vehicle is ready to drive/use. Over the next 2 days Nanotech Crystal Car Coating will continue to become harder until the surface reaches a 9H pencil hardness.

I want to do more then 1 coat. How long should I wait in between each pass?

If the outside temperature is not too low, you can start the next pass 24 hours after finishing the buffing of the previous pass.

Nanotech Crystal Car Coating Aftercare

Can I still drive my car while it’s drying?

Yes you can.

However, it might result in slightly less complete coverage due to perhaps rain washing it off before it dries etc.

We recommend to allow to dry for at least 12 hours without interruption.

Do you have to reapply after each car wash?

No. Our product is not wax. It can last 2-3 years. So just the one coating is fine.

Can I wax the car after ceramic coating?

There’s no need to use wax after you applied the ceramic coating on your car. The ceramic coating has all the benefits of a wax and a lot extra.

How do I maintain and care for my car after it’s coated with Nanotech Crystal Car Coating?

Coated vehicles are much easier to maintain, especially since you will not need to frequently clay, polish, or wax the paint in order to keep it protected from the elements. However, it is important to note that no ceramic coating is bullet proof and the finish will begin to degrade if neglected or improperly cared for.

We recommend to:

  1. Wash on a bi-weekly basis to avoid excessive contamination build up.
  2. Avoid washing in direct sunlight to minimize streaking and water spotting.
  3. Wash from the top down leaving the dirtiest sections for last to avoid cross contamination.
  4. Use the “two bucket” method – one bucket for rinsing your sponge/mitt and one for soapy water.
  5. Use separate soap and sponge/mitt for wheels.
Other General Questions about Nanotech Crystal Car Coating

Can I use this on my motorcycle?

Yes, 30ml size Nanotech Crystal Car Coating are perfectly suited for use on motorcycles.

Can Nanotech Crystal Car Coating be used on chrome?

Yes, it is suitable for use on chrome surfaces as well.

Is it safe for vinyl decals, striping, and carbon fiber wraps?

Nanotech Crystal Car Coating is perfectly safe for any porous surface including vinyl decals, striping, and any sort of car wraps.

What sort of protection does Nanotech Crystal Car Coating offer?

  • 9H Pencil Hardness
     Hardness of ceramic coatings play an important role in determining the level of scratch resistance expected. One easy method of evaluating scratch resistance of ceramic coating hardness is with a grading pencil test, which requires the use of a kit of pencils with assorted densities from H(softest) to 9H(hardest). Each pencil is used to make lines in the coating; the first pencil in order that does not scratch the coating determines hardness. Nanotech Crystal Car Coating base coat ceramic formula measures at 9H on the hardness scale; the highest possible scratch resistance currently offered in a nano-ceramic coating.
  • 3D Deep Gloss
     Condensed Nano-Bionic particles with superior crosslinking abilities provide tough 3D structure high gloss flexible coating.
  • Hydrophobic & Antifouling
     Our new generation nanabionic ceramic technology mimics nature’s Lotus effect, the lotus effect refers to self-cleaning properties that are a result of ultrahydrophobicity as exhibited by the leaves of lotus flower.
  • Nanomaterials
     These materials describe, materials of which a single unit is sized 1 and 1000 nanometers.
  • Anti UV
     Prevents paint from fading and oxidation.
  • Anti-Acid Rain
     Durable protection against acid rain.
  • Easy-Cleaning

Can I coat plastic trim?

Plastic trim is no problem to coat. It’s pretty safe on any solid porous surface including plastic, 3M, glass etc. It won’t leave any visible marks, will just bond to the surface.

Can this coating be used on wheels?

Yes. Nanotech Crystal Car Coating is suitable for coating alloy, aluminium or wrapped rims

Can this work on convertible soft cloth tops?

Ceramic coating is meant for solid surfaces only. Any surface that bends or folds like a convertible soft cloth top is not meant to be coated with a ceramic coating. For these sort of surfaces you can look into hydrophobic sprays meant for clothing or shoes and if course specialized convertible soft top sprays.

How hard is 9H?

Coatings are graded on a graphite hardness scale like pencils.

Think of it this way: on a graphite scale, 9H is the hardest form. 

One easy method of evaluating scratch resistance of ceramic coating hardness is with a grading pencil test, which requires the use of a kit of pencils with assorted densities from H(softest) to 9H(hardest). Each pencil is used to make lines in the coating; the first pencil in order that does not scratch the coating determines hardness. Armor Shield’s base coat ceramic formula measures at 9H on the hardness scale; the highest possible scratch resistance currently offered in a nano-ceramic coating.

Is this coating permanent?

Not exactly, although more semi-permanent. Nanotech Crystal Car Coating should be thought of as adding another clear coat to the paint’s surface. This new clear coat is glossier, chemical resistant, and harder than the original clear coat. Eventually the clear coat will wear away over the years; its overall longevity depends on conditions, cleaning frequency and proper application.

Does Nanotech Crystal Car Coating help with swirl marks and scratches on black cars?

Even thou Nanotech Crystal Car Coating deepens the look and feel of a black paint-job, those pesky scratches and swirl marks that are so easily visible on black vehicles should be first buffed out and polished. What Nanotech Crystal Car Coating is best at is then protecting your paint-job so that it retains the look and doesn’t get scratched out again.

Can It protect against stone chips?

There’s no guarantee for stone chips but it can protect against most of the scratches.

Is Nanotech Crystal Car Coating vehicle color specific?

The product is completely see-through and suitable for any vehicle color.

Ho many layers do I need to protect my car?

One layer of Nanotech Crystal Car Coating is perfectly enough for full protection. Multiple layers enhance the look more and increase the durability as well as making sure the car is covered well in case you missed a spot in your first pass.
