    What topper for AvalonKing Armor Shield?

    This will be my first ceramic coating. I am curious as to the topper that would work well with Armor Shield.
    Does it need to be ceramic? I have TW Graphene Flex wax, would that be a good topper for it? Thanks!

    I’m not sure anyone in this forum uses that coating to speak from experience. But any topper with SiO2 should be fine.

    Agree you could probably top it with anything you want. If it is a quality coating (never heard of it before) than nothing should really effect it.

    The only real question is why you are topping and what you hope to gain.

    It's a brand that pays most YouTube influencers to advertise their product and provide significant discount codes. I would not use it on my car. If I'm going through the trouble to prep the car for a coating, I might as well use something from a known and established brand.

    I have only heard of that brand from the automotive youtubers I follow but they are also sponsored by it. Its not a common brand used on these forums or even on some facebook groups AFAIK.

    I would think any topper with si02 will work. You may want to contact them directly to confirm.

    Re: What topper for AvalonKing Armor Shield?

    Thanks for all the replies everyone. I am a bit of a noob in detailing, so maybe this is not THE best best or high end. I did watch and read a lot about it from posts over the last few years in different places. I will see how it works and go from there.

    •If I was contending with this uncertainty
    -I’d send an email directly to AvalonKing
    asking for their recommendation(s).

    By doing so, IMO, would prevent me
    from possibly committing a violation

    I messaged them and they said to use an si02 topper. They recommended:
    Mother CMX, Adams Ceramic Detailer or Gyeon si02

    Thanks again for all the replies
