AMMO REFLEX PRO ENAMEL COAT is an all new enamel coating that is non-flammable, easy to use, and lasts 1 to 2 years if maintained properly and looks unbelievably, insanely, ridiculously, shiny. (almost shockingly reflective and twice the size of the previous Reflex for 3-5 applications)
Background: My goal has been to create a coating that is non-flammable and as SAFE as possible for the AMMO family so this can be used in your driveway without heat lamps, special tools or techniques.
As you know, coatings are everywhere...and the focus has been on pencil hardness, marketing buzz-words, and 5-10 year "warranties". I can't/won't compete on this level. For the past 3 years, my inbox has been full of requests for a product (similar to the first version of Reflex years ago) that's durable yet, safe as possible, and easy to use.
As part of this project, I have not only been focused on user safety...but on ingredients and additives that could possibly help reduce bacterial infection. Why add this to a coating? With the real-world focused on ANYTHING to fight germs, bacteria, etc... why not try.
Our door handles are the entryway to the vehicle. Let's try to minimize the spread there. Be the first to help me break new ground. All the things you want in a coating...without the negatives.
This product formulation has been tested to ISO 22196:2011 showing levels of E coli to be reduced by up to 99.99% (Log 4) over a 24-hour period and levels of Staph Aureus to be reduced by up to 99.99% (Log 3) over a 24 hour period.
Maintain Reflex Pro in-between applications with Reflex Pro Top Coat spray for the best protection and life of the coating possible.
*INCLUDES 1 MF APPLICATOR
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, polysilazanes, 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).
I finished putting this product on my car and i watched a fly land on the hood. His little legs slid out from underneath him and he smashed his head into the car. Sorry, little bug. This stuff really really works.
I first tried this coating last year, it was actually the first coating I ever used. Since then I’ve gone through 3 bottles of it and have also tried other company’s coatings. I keep coming back to this one. This is a special product, you can tell Larry didn’t just get a private label coating and slap his name on it. He really must have poured a lot of time into finding the perfect formula for user experience and end result. Also, I really like how much fudge factor you have if you maybe don’t level a spot properly you can fix it if you catch it within a reasonable time frame. Most of all let’s not forget your car will look amazing!!
Truth be told I was a little nervous about whether I could find success with this product. I’ve always been a carnauba wax guy. However, the YouTube channel was very helpful and informative and I thought I’d give it a go. The secret is in the preparation. That took the most time. Not gonna lie. Set aside most of a day for this. The application of the Ammo product however was actually quite easy. literally wipe it on and buff it off. My truck looks great. 5 stars!
