Can the Average Guy Apply a Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic coatings have long been touted as the ideal choice when it comes to protecting your car from a slew of environmental hazards. Not only do they provide incredible hydrophobicity, but they can last for YEARS! They are the clear choice if you want to make sure that your paint is kept in great condition without needing to deal with the hassle of applying a wax every month! However, there is one downside to ceramic coatings that most people tend to get stuck on, they are a lot more difficult to apply than your average wax or sealant. There are many professional detailers out there who have mastered the art of applying ceramic coatings and are certified installers of ceramic coatings. However, something that many people have asked is...

Can the Average Guy Apply a Ceramic Coating?

Well, the answer is YES! In this video, Bruno Massel and Justin Labato take you through the process of applying a ceramic coating, using the BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Paint Coating and BLACKFIRE Paint Prep. There are many different ways to apply a ceramic coating - for professionals as well as car enthusiasts. Your car will have a high-class shine like never before!



The first thing that you need to understand is that there are different categories of ceramic coatings. There are professional-grade ceramic coatings that are more difficult in both prep and application. Then there are the consumer-grade ceramic coatings like the BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Paint Coating. These coatings require much less intense preparation before applying. Often you will be able to simply wash your car and then use a panel prep like BLACKFIRE Paint Prep.

Once you've got the surface prepped, BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Paint Coating will be much easier for the average detailer to apply! The BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Paint Coating has a longer working time, so you'll be able to work in larger 3' x 3' section, allowing you to complete the process much faster. On top of that, BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Paint Coating is much easier to notice when it is ready to be wiped off. BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Paint Coating "sweats" once it is ready for you to buff away. This very apparent sweating makes it easy for the novice to know when the perfect time is!

But, how difficult is it to mess up the application of BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Paint Coating?

Since the biggest factor in the success of your application is the quality of the prep you did, BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Paint Coating makes it much more difficult to fail thanks to the easy and straightforward prep process needed.

However, like any ceramic coating, BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Paint Coating does have a window of opportunity for buffing. If you buff it off too early, you won't get the level of protection you want. If you buff it off too late, the product won't be level on the surface, and you may notice high spots or uneven gloss. With that said, BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Paint Coating has a much more forgiving window than professional-grade ceramic coatings, so it won't be incredibly difficult to toe that line.

When it comes down to it, as long as you follow the directions carefully and stay consistent throughout the entire prep and application process, BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Paint Coating can easily be applied by any detailer with any level of experience or skill!
