Spray on Ceramic (Polish)

Post by pocketchange » Fri Oct 11, 2019 9:57 am



If you are up to speed on cleaning and all, skip this.
I've been maintaining paint (or trying to) since the early 60s.
Carnuba wax has been around a very long time and is exceptional.
Time marches on and recently I've discovered a Ceramic Paint sealing material that is "without doubt" the tops.
TLC V2.
Spray it on, let it sit, then wipe it off (micro fiber) and repeat.
Your paint & windshield will take to it like a fish to water
I have NO connection with this product.. pc

It's not cheap...how long would a bottle like this last?

It is not as expensive as Top Coat F11. https://topcoat.store/.
I foolishly tried Top Coat F11, it is really nothing more than a spray and wash that washes off quickly. After that bit of foolishness, I think I'll continue to use Honda Polish for the plastic and 210 for the windshield.

My Audi A8 was covered with less than an 1" of liquid from the spray bottle.
The paint is in excellent condition, so I'll guess this is less than a typical quantity.
I agree, the F11 does have a longevity issue.. pc

What size is that spray bottle?
How often does it need to be done??
