For those looking to prolong the life of their nano-ceramic tile, here are some additional aftercare tips to keep in mind. Humidity, heat, wind and other ambient air considerations will affect the way a tile hardens, so follow the manufacturer's curing recommendations and be patient. If you are a detailer or someone who wants to apply a ceramic coating to your own vehicle, consider the important steps of correcting and polishing the paint before you commit to performing this service yourself. From purchasing considerations and preparation tips, to quick clear coat fixes and aftercare, the following guide will show you what it takes to properly apply a nano ceramic coating, and then make it last.
Then, if you think another round of tile is needed, repeat the entire application process. Although my paint probably didn't require a 2-stage polish, I had plenty of time on my hands and decided to do the best job I could before applying the coating. If you are recoating a used vehicle with more swirl marks or scratches, be sure to do a complete paint correction with multiple stages of polishing. Although this Carpro product is designed to be able to be used outdoors if it is a sunny or hot day, I always recommend that you wait until temperatures cool down a little and are stable before attempting to use any coating product.
Large temperature swings can make even the easiest products difficult to work with, and you don't want to try this with something like tile. When you apply a ceramic coating, if you don't remove 100 percent of the excess coating, what is left is called a "high spot". I must say that I was nervous before I tried tiling, as it was my first time working with a "true ceramic product". For those of you who are not familiar with the mandatory steps of DIY tiling, here is a little checklist.
However, if you think there is a risk of rain within 48 hours, you can follow up with a coat of CarPro Reload over the tile. Premature contact with liquids, windblown debris and members of the feline family with an affinity for car roofs and bonnets are particularly adept at ruining nano-ceramic coatings. Shake the bottle of ceramic coating vigorously before applying 6 to 10 drops to the surface of the fabric.
