    Re: Coated under 15 minutes using PBL Surface Coating

    Paulgyro, I’m still surprised there are any issues knocking off high spots from Surface Coating after only 1 minute wait time. I’ve been lazy and come back 3 minutes later and they leveled right out. What are the environmental conditions that you are applying in?

How many you have will depend on how thorough you are! If you're someone who leaves streaks and excess behind when you spray wax then the same will apply here. I know it seems counterintuitive that you're not "working the product in" as much with this method but I definitely notice an immediate increase in slickness when applying the product this way, so to me that must mean coating is on there and I've got sufficient coverage.

    Honestly just try a small panel with this method, preferably on a dark car so you can see the product spread. It's really quite foolproof this way. You won't mess anything up and you'll have the hang of it in no more than 5 minutes.
    A gotcha, nice way of putting it like a quick spray wax. I'll try it like that with MF and not the form applicator that is recommended.

    Note that I worked the product until it disappears like the instructions say....but the issue is the high spots don't go away! They just become super hard and I need to apply more product to get them off.

    I'm in the Phoenix, AZ area. So it's been in the 60s and dry when I'm applying. I think the main issue is that I am working the product until it disappears but only 50% disappears, perhaps just too long. Maybe the instructions are just wrong?

    Weather sounds optimal. My stuff flashes rather quickly. I can only work it for seconds before its dried and then even if I wait a minute the high spots come right out. Wish I had an answer or even a problem cause for you.

    I guess you could try just applying and only working on for 10 seconds and then wipe?

    That's exactly what I'm going to do per what Autogeek customer service recommended. Work for only 10-15 secs and wipe as needed only.

    I contacted Pinnacle directly for more tech support but just was forwarded to voicemail and haven't heard back.
