    Re: CanCoat Application Problems

    Desertnate, I think your initial post could have been written by me after my first application. Welcome to my world! Having used sealants for so long, I am a bit heavy handed in applications. I checked with BudgetMan and Guz and they taught me it should be applied very thin. I now use The Guz's method of spraying a MF block pad. Two sprays for the first use, then believe it or not, just one spray on the pad for the next few sections. I do 18 x 18 inch sections, maybe 24 x 24. Then I immediately gently wipe / buff the area with a fresh MF towel until all grabby-ness is gone and it is slick. Rotate the pad out every few sections. I used to apply Collinite as thin as humanly possible. At least that was my goal. I try and do the same with CanCoat. I can get 8 sedans done per Can. If your Can was only 1/2 full, the mailman stole some from you or else you had a leak in shipment. My cans are 90% full when new.

  2. Thanks Desertnate, Caraman thanked for this post

    Re: CanCoat Application Problems

    Thanks!

    Interesting to hear everyone had much more product in their bottle. I don't think I had a leak because the lid was on tight and it made a hissing noise when I broke the seal.

    Either way, I'll fix the problems and give it a try again on a different can in a few weeks.
    Save the Manuals!!

    I think you realized by now that using more product is not good. As Jeff pointed out this has a fast flash time.

    I've used a towel and a microfiber applicator to apply it. The microfiber applicator is much better in terms of control and in my experience laying down a much more even layer. Again you don't need to overly spray the applicator. The downside is that you will go through a couple of these depending on the size of the vehicle as the pad becomes saturated and the product cures on it after a few panels. The microfiber blocks are what I use with CanCoat and don't have any issues.

    As Jeff mentioned working fast with it is key and have the towel in the other hand ready to wipe off after a couple passes. Good lighting is always helpful.

    I did my first vehicle with CanCoat this weekend after a complete polish. I've watched the Gyeon video on Autogeek a couple of times, but struggled using a microfiber towel to apply it. My problem was not being able to spray an even mist across the towel, and couldn't seem to get complete coverage on the paint (or see that I was getting coverage on my white paint). So I gave up the towel after the roof and did the rest of the van with the same micro-fiber covered sponge that The Guz is talking about. I could cover the surface of the sponge with 1 or 2 sprays, apply evenly to the paint, and then immediately buff out with another soft micro-fiber cloth. That seemed to work great, and I could verify the micro-fiber sponge was applying product evenly. I waited 4 hours and then applied Cure as a topper.

    Re: CanCoat Application Problems

    It's worth mentioned that the white towel type thing that it comes with is actually really good at applying the Cancoat, followed by a quick buff with a plush MF.

    I noticed they shipped it with the order I just received, but my first order for can coat did not come with one
