Undrdog Pro FAQUpdated 10 months ago

Quick Q&A about our flagship product, Undrdog Pro

Our pro-grade, single-layer solution designed for detailing professionals and all those who want the best protection on their vehicle. 

What is Undrdog Pro good for?

It will reduce your maintenance by at least 50% and protect your vehicle from incidents that occur through day-to-day driving like bird droppings, bug accumulation, acid rain, and other things of that nature. A coating adds a layer of protection between your car and the elements.

Is Undrdog Pro like a ceramic coating?

Yes, it's similar: it beads water, it is glossy and it offers protection from the elements. However, as we listen to the market and adapt to fix the most critical pain points, we make it way easier to install, which in turn makes it more affordable for both the installer and the customer.

Does Undrdog Pro create any kind of "hardness" on top of the coated surface?

Our coating does dry to a solid if poured thick enough, however, the amount of coating left on your vehicle after application and leveling isn't substantial enough to increase the overall hardness of paint.

Does hardness make my car more scratch-resistant? 

The easy answer is no. It may reduce the surface tension and decrease the opportunity for a scratch, but will not and should not be considered for the sole purpose of anti-scratch.

How difficult is it to apply Undrdog Pro?

Undrdog Pro is one of the easiest, if not the easiest, coating to apply on the market today. With a slow flash time and weather tolerant composition, it makes applying this single layer coating a breeze.

How long does it take for the coating to be applied?

Usually, the turnaround time is about 2.5 to 3 hours, but it could take as long as 4 hours, depending on how big your vehicle is and what your demands are.

How many cars can I coat with 30ml of Undrdog Pro?

Undrdog Pro can cover up to 2 standard-size cars and mid-size SUVs. For Full-size and large SUVs and trucks, one bottle of Undrdog Pro will cover the entire vehicle.

Can I apply more than one layer of Pro?

Pro was designed as single-layer coatings. Technically, you can layer it. When applying additional layers, you increase the risk of mistakes and hazing. You're also reactivating the previous layer and removing some of it. We find applying a single thick layer and letting it flash for as long as possible to be more effective. 

With that said, many UD Installers still decide to apply an additional layer. If you choose to do so, we recommend you wait 30 - 60 minutes before applying another layer.

Can Undrdog Pro be applied to the interior?

Yes! Undrdog Pro protects well on all surfaces including leather, plastics, metal, and glass. However, it is not advised to use it on fabrics.

What happens if it rains immediately after I coat my vehicle?

Things happen - if it rains on your vehicle within 24 hours of having it coated, you should dry your car with soft microfibers as soon as it stops. Be conscious of damages. 95% of the time no damages occur, but in the event they do, you can apply another layer. The best thing to do of course is keeping it out of the rain while your coating dries.

How often do I have to reapply this coating?

This is totally dependent on the wear and tear that your vehicle experiences and how well you take care of it. Most users see multiple years before needing to reapply, but again it is completely dependent on aftercare.

How long will my car be protected?

The coating will last for multiple years, depending on how you take care of the vehicle. The best way to do that is to bucket wash it once a week. If you can’t bucket wash it, use a touchless drive-through car wash, and if neither of those two is an option for you, then a contact drive-through car wash is also ok, just expect a reduction in the coating’s longevity.

Is there specific maintenance that I need to keep doing or is it just set-it-and-forget-it?

It can definitely be a set-it-and-forget-it, however, to get the maximum performance and longevity, the following is recommended:

  1. Regular car washes with our Soap and a soft wash mitt.
  2. Regular usage of our Quick Detail, a product that can add some slickness and hydrophobicity for those looking to get the most out of their coating.

What happens if I no longer want the coating on my vehicle?

You are stuck with it forever! Joking aside, a quick polish will remove the coating. From there you can reapply the coating or carry on with raw, boring paint.

Do I need to be trained and certified to apply this coating?

No, of course not! That's another perk of Undrdog, we listened to the market and made an easy-to-apply and highly effective single-layer coating that just about anyone can do. One of many ways we are saving you money and time.

Can I apply Undrdog Pro to vinyl?

Yes, absolutely, you can! Undrdog pro absorbs into the vinyl and seals it from stains, and sun fade. The coating will also make cleaning and drying a breeze.

Can I apply Undrdog Pro to matte or satin finishes?

Yes! A common question we get asked is will it make the finish glossy. The simple answer is no, it will enrich the matte or satin finish but it will not make it glossy. It looks very nice:

Can I apply wrap or stickers over the coating?

Typically not, because the coating has anti-stick properties, and it's typical for wraps or stickers to delaminate if applied over the coating. We recommend getting your wrap or stickers applied prior to applying Undrdog Pro.

Do I really need to wear gloves and proper safety gear?

Yes, when working with any chemical including ours you should wear gloves and respiratory wear. No two bodies are alike and it is better to be safe than sorry. 

What is the shelf life of Undrdog Pro?

If stored in a cool, dry location with the lid tightly closed, an unopened bottle of Pro can last up to 2 years while an open bottle lasts up to a year.
