1. Wear latex gloves, eye protection, mask, and work in a well-ventilated area.
2. Prior to first coat application, wash and clay the paint if needed.
3. If needed, use isopropyl alcohol mixed 50-50 with water or an automotive grade wax and silicone remover to decontaminate surface.
4. Prime microfiber applicator and apply in overlapping motions in 2x2 sections.
5. Allow 2-3 minutes dwell time until cured (wait for the rainbow to appear).
6. Lightly remove excess with a microfiber towel.
NOTE: Best if applied on cool surfaces, out of direct wind, and no water/rain for 6 hours after application. Dependent on conditions and thickness of application, may take a week to fully set.
These product are recommended to be used with Reflex Pro
A: Yes. Coatings vary drastically, but this has a very high percentage (once cured) of SiO2 with carbon residues. This product contains polsilazines, solvents, and additives which are thermo-setting resins at room temperture. (ie do not require a UV light)Q: How do I maintain Reflex Pro?
A: Maintenance is exactly the same as a none coated car, however, abrasives will remove the coating. In other words, perform a healthy wash (when needed) with AMMO Foam or favorite car soap, dry with Hydrate, and use Reflex Pro Top Coat as often as you feel is required. The more layers of protetection (Skin, Reflex Pro Top Coat, Creme, etc...) the more protected the "base layer" of Reflex Pro will be.Q: How long does Reflex Pro take to cure?
A: Depends on humidity and ambient temps, but 30 secs to 2 minutes is the average flash time before buffing off. One layer is advised for application and minimum curing time of 6 hours in a dry environment. Reflex Pro may take up to a week to fully set and will perform optimally after 1st wash.Q: How do I prep the paint before applying Reflex Pro?
A: Wash the paint, remove the contaminants with clay (if necessary), compound and polishing (if necessary) is always the best option as the Reflex will have extra depth and shine over "leveled" paint. Light ISO wipes (spray on towel first) can be helpful if paint was recently waxed. You can layer Reflex Pro over "old" layers of Reflex Pro without removing the old layer.Q: Can I use other paint care products (wax, sealant, spray wax) after Reflex Pro is applied?
A: Yes. However, the top layer (most upper surface) will give the paint its water characteristics. Hydrophobic or Hydrophilic. I prefer to layer AMMO SKIN over it every few months as its "jacket" or sacrificial layer. I also use Reflex Pro Top Coat after every wash.Q: Is Reflex Pro safe on matte paint or vinyl wraps?
A: Yes. It will bring more depth or "richness" to the color but it will not be "shiny" afterwards. I highly recommend it on matte paint or vinyl as it is really the only type of protection for those areas without causing a deep shine (therefore defeating the matte finish).
This was the first ceramic coating that I purchased, because the AMMO NYC videos with Larry were so educational! And they didn’t provide unnecessary information, but more information than I needed to give the customer! Bottle was a bit pricy, but was so worth it!
My First use of a Coating. It goes on and comes off very easy. I am certain I am using too much product after communicating with Larry. The Bottle is So SMALL, and just applying droplets to the small Microfiber Applicator don't seem like much????? However, If you do that before applying to each panel, (not knowing how far it'll go, or how much to apply B 4 doing so) this stuff disappears outta the bottle, and I mean QUICKLY. That said, It does shine nice, It beads and sheets nicely. Protection, I can't speak to due to Just Applying the product. I did buy some BLUSH PASTE WAX and REFLEX PRO to support the Application of REFLEX PRO. Not sure I can afford to keep Purchasing this stuff @ $150.00 for 1.01 OZ'S????? AMMO is TOP NOTCH stuff, and Larry is available to help when he can.His Knowledge is priceless.
Lives up to its top notch reputation
I just did my 2002 porche 996 which is a blue metallic... looks like I just painted it
Took me about an hour doing one panel at a time ... used 1/3 of the bottle ... even did all door jams etc
Follow directions and a clean microfiber towel to buff off every 2 panels
Remember , going slow and methodical will pay you back
Great product !
