How to Apply The GlossenhancenUpdated 2 months ago

Quick guide on how to apply the Glossenhancen to your boat

The Glossenhancen is a stand-alone coating for protecting your vehicle paint, plastics and glass against the elements, or combine it with any protective/ceramic coating on the market to increase dry and cure times to have the vehicle rain-ready in less than an hour. 


What's Needed:

  • Brand new microfiber towels

  • Applicator pads

  • Wax and grease remover or denatured alcohol

  • Adequate lighting

  • Timer

  • Gloves

  • Face Mask


Installation steps:

  1. Prep the surface by wiping it with denatured alcohol or a body shop wax and grease remover. Be sure to use fresh, clean towels. Once finished, you may begin coating. If you're installing The Glossenhancen on top of a freshly applied coating, there's no need to prep the surface.

  2. Prime your applicator pad by dripping 15-20 drops of The Glossenhancen onto the pad. You want the pad to be damp with the product. Throughout the entire coating process, make sure to keep your applicator pad damp by continually adding Undrdog to the pad, as needed, to maintain an even coating.

  3. To begin, apply The Glossenhancen evenly to one panel. We suggest starting on the roof of the vehicle and working your way to the front and around the entire vehicle.

  4. Apply one panel at a time in a cross-hatch motion. This means applying the applicator pad in a vertical and then horizontal motion to ensure complete and total coverage of each panel

  5. Complete as much as possible within a 7-10 minute time frame.

  6. Once the area is coated and the product has flashed for no less than seven to ten minutes, you may begin wiping. We suggest using at least three towels for this process and working one panel at a time in the order they were applied. Start with your first panel - use one towel to wipe off the coating, one towel to buff off any remaining residue, and one as a final wipe-down to ensure no residue is left behind.

  7. Check the vehicle for any residue and congratulate yourself on a job well done.

 

For best results:

Aim to coat in a cool shaded area - but you can apply The Glossenhancen in direct sunlight. Make sure your environment's temperature is above 45° and below 110° F when applying. Keep your area contamination-free. Use in a well-ventilated area, and always wear gloves and a face mask when working with chemicals.


Drying time and immediate after-care:

Once you are done applying the Glossenhancen needs only an hour before it's fully cured. Do not wash with detergents for one week. 

Once a whole week is up, use a pH-balanced soap for striping dirt and grime to maintain your coating. Our Soap is perfectly compatible with all coatings. The most important thing besides washing your vehicle is drying! Always dry your vehicle after it gets wet.


Storage:

Always store in a cool, dry location with the lid tightly closed.
