Can you use polishing compound on ceramic coating?
Because of its restorative properties, applying a polishing compound to your ceramic coating would simply strip away this protective layer, leaving your car with nothing but the exposed clear coat. While this is great for removing old layers of wax, it shortens rather than extends the life of your paint sealant.
Can you apply wax before ceramic coating?
You should not apply wax before ceramic coating. Ceramic coating performs best when applied to the clean paintwork of a car. The coating bonds with the paint of a car providing a thin layer of protection. Any dirt, grime, or temporary LSP such as wax will only limit the longevity and effectiveness of the coating.
How do I prepare the surface for ceramic coating?
We recommend using Wipe Out to prepare the surface for coating, which will remove any lingering and leftover waxes, sealants or glazes.
