DP Ceramic Detail Spray
Detailing done quickly!
DP Ceramic Detail Spray is an easy-to-use quick detailer that is infused with SiO2 properties. Designed to remove surface contaminants, DP Ceramic Detail Spray is highly lubricating, so it doesn't harm the surface as it cleans. DP Ceramic Detail Spray is safe to use on ceramic coatings, waxes and sealants, all while adding even more gloss.
We don't always want to spend hours detailing our vehicles. Despite if we love it, we don't always have the time or space to detail the way we like. Maybe it's wintertime and you can't work outside, maybe you're on a road trip or at a car show and don't have your garage space and all your tools, or maybe you just want to quickly touch up your car before you hit the road. In these cases, a detail spray would work best, one like DP Ceramic Detail Spray.
DP Ceramic Detail Spray gently and easily removes surface contaminants, such as dirt, dust, and other light debris that find their way to your surface. This is because the formula of DP Ceramic Detail Spray is highly lubricating, gently pulling these contaminants from the surface without causing harm. This allows for easier maintenance washes!
We all know the buzzword of SiO2, but how does it help DP Ceramic Detail Spray? DP Ceramic Detail Spray is infused with SiO2 properties, creating extreme protection and hydrophobicity. This hydrophobicity allows for water beading, letting water and its contaminants to bead up and roll off, rather than sticking around etching into the surface of your vehicle. Water beading is key in helping to prevent water spots. Plus, the SiO2 properties in DP Ceramic Detail Spray makes may for ultimate gloss, leaving your vehicle protected and looking sleek.
Designed to be used in tandem with the DP Ceramic Series, DP Ceramic Detail Spray can be used on top of ceramic coatings, waxes and sealants. Plus, since it comes in the convenience of spray you can detail your car in just three simple steps! Just spray DP Ceramic Detail Spray directly onto the surface, wipe on with a clean microfiber towel and then buff away with a dry side of the towel. This time and money saving product allows you to make your car look as though you spent hours detailing your car, when in reality, it just took a few minutes!
Shake well before use.
1. Spray DP Ceramic Detail Spray directly onto the surface. 2. Wipe on using a clean microfiber towel. 3. Flip to a fresh side of your towel and buff surface to a high shine.
The perfect car to test out this new SiO2 Detail Spray - a recently ceramic coated 1957 Corvette!
This car recently had the paint corrected and then had a ceramic coating installed. It's a restored 1957 Corvette with a modern basecoat/clearcoat paint job like the car in your garage or driveway. While a lot cars like this are Garage Queens, this s a driver and it shows it. When it arrived the owner had recently been caught in the rain so there was a light film all over the car plus the normal dust, dead bugs and fingerprints from people "touching" it.
Application for a spray detailer is pretty basic, start at the highest points of the car and work your way down. Since the convertible top is folded out of the way I started on the driver's side hood.
Basically it's a simple mist and wipe process only after you spread the initial product misted onto the surface, flip your towel to a dry side or fold to a dry side to give the section a final wipe.
This new SiO2 detail spray easily cut through the film on the paint removing everything and leaving a crystal clear finish.
After spreading the product, I flipped the towel over....
And then finished the section off...
After finishing the hood and tops of the fenders, I set this towel aside and switched to a clean, dry towel and moved to the back of the car.
The back and sides of the car weren't as bad as the front clip but still needed a thorough wiping down...
This is road film and dust that had built-up since the last time the car was cleaned.
Classic cars like this often times have painted dashes and the paint on the dash was also dirty and had a film on it...
Done! I think I went through 6 of these super fluffy towels to do the job proper.
Here's the final results...
Slick, fast and easy! That's how I would describe this spray detailer. The key is to mist a little on, spread the product around immediately and then using a dry section of your towel, polish this section to a clear, high gloss shine. The resulting paint felt smooth to the touch and the results were completely streak-free. Black paint shows everything so if it works this great on black paint it will work great on any color.
I like the way this product wipes clear after the initials spreading of the product. Then with a few more wipes of a dry side of your towel it leaves a perfect finish that's slick to the touch. Because it's SiO2 based, it also restores and maintains a hydrophobic surface to that not only protect your car but makes future cleaning faster and easier. Best of all, you can use on ceramic coated cars or even cars that are maintained with conventional waxes and sealants, so it's truly a versatile SiO2 Detail Spray.
Spray detailers like this are actually really important to keep in your car for emergencies, like removing a fresh bird dropping. You should also keep some clean quality microfiber towels in a safe storage place like a 1-gallon zip-lock baggie or a detail bag. This way, with a product like this you can remove light dust, fingerprints and smudges on-the-fly anywhere and restore that just detailed look that will impress your friends and make jaws drop!
