Step-By-Step How To Apply CK1 Ceramic Coating

Applying CK1 Ceramic Coating requires careful preparation and attention to detail. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to apply CK1 Ceramic Coating:

  1. Preparing the Surface:
    • Thoroughly wash and dry the vehicle to remove any dirt, dust, or contaminants.
    • Clay bar the surface to eliminate any embedded contaminants and ensure a smooth surface.
    • If necessary, perform paint correction to remove any swirl marks, scratches, or imperfections.
  2. Masking and Taping:
    • Use painter’s tape and plastic sheeting to mask off areas that you do not want the ceramic coating to come into contact with, such as rubber trims, windows, and plastic parts.
  3. Application Process:
    • Put on nitrile gloves to protect your hands during the application process.
    • Apply a few drops of CK1 Ceramic Coating onto the provided applicator pad or microfiber applicator.
    • Work on one panel at a time, starting with a small section.
    • Apply the coating in straight, even motions, ensuring full coverage of the surface.
    • Use a cross-hatch pattern to ensure complete coverage and to avoid missing any spots.
    • Apply the coating in thin layers to prevent excessive buildup.
  4. Curing Time:
    • Allow the CK1 Ceramic Coating to cure for the recommended time specified by the manufacturer. This typically ranges from 1 to 5 minutes.
    • During this curing time, the coating will bond to the surface and create a protective layer.
  5. Removal and Buffing:
    • After the curing time has elapsed, use a clean, lint-free microfiber cloth to gently wipe off any excess coating.
    • Buff the surface with a separate clean microfiber cloth to ensure a smooth, glossy finish.
    • Inspect the panel for any remaining residue or streaks and remove them with additional buffing if necessary.
  6. Repeat the Process:
    • Continue applying CK1 Ceramic Coating following the same steps on each panel of the vehicle until the entire surface is coated.
  7. Post-Application Care:
    • After applying CK1 Ceramic Coating, it is recommended to avoid washing or exposing the vehicle to water or extreme weather conditions for the first 24-48 hours to allow the coating to fully cure.
    • Regularly maintain the coating by washing the vehicle with pH-neutral car shampoo and using a ceramic coating-specific maintenance spray to enhance its longevity.

Remember to carefully read and follow the specific instructions provided by the manufacturer of CK1 Ceramic Coating, as application techniques and curing times may vary.
