Step 1) Prepare Your Sprayable Nano-Ceramic Coating
After you’ve completely detailed your vehicle, you can go ahead and prepare your sprayable ceramic coating. Make sure to have at least two new quality microfiber towels, and also to shake your coating bottle prior to using the product. After preparing your bottle of ceramic coating and two new high-quality microfiber towels, you’re ready to start your coating application.
Step 2) Clean The Paint With A Paint Prep Solution
Even after detailing your vehicle with a hand wash, clay bar, and polish, you’re going to have to prep your paint with a cleaning solvent. These cleaning solvents will remove any polish or oils on your paint, leaving you a perfectly clean surface for your coating to bond to.

Step 3) Prime Your Application Towel
Spray your applicator towel once or twice to prime the surface of the towel.
Step 4) Apply The Ceramic Coating
Working in small 4x4 sections, spray your coating on the surface of the vehicle and then, in straight line motions, buff in the solution, making sure to get full and even coverage for each section.
Step 5) Buff Off To A High Gloss Shine
After applying the coating, take your second towel and buff off all residue to a high gloss shine.
Step 6) Inspect & Repeat
After each section, make sure to inspect your work just in case you missed any areas. Also remember to flip your towels to a fresh side after every other panel to ensure you’re able to remove all excess coating from the vehicle.
Step 7) Final Inspection
After completing the vehicle, give it a final lookover, making sure you didn't leave any excess coating. When leftover excess coating cures, it will leave a high spot on the paint. You want to make sure to remove all excess coating residue to avoid high spots.
Step 8) Let The Coating Cure
Depending on your coatings instructions, let the coating cure indoors for 24 to 48 hours. This means avoiding driving the vehicle and any moisture such as water or extreme humidity.
