    I would say "yes" but apply, wait about 35 to 45 seconds and then gently wipe the treated area.

    Ended up. Doing a friends older truck.

    She was a little ruff around the edges but it turned out very nice I think. Coating seems to be holding up well. We have had an abnormal amount of rain since install.

    Looks freaking awesome!





    All my clients that I've installed this particular coating - the all love it. Live I've shared before, it's bullet-proof.

    And everyone loves how easy and fast it is to wash and dry this coating. Especially if you have a leaf blower.

    Hi Mike,

    When doing a 3x3 section for a hood with MF suede, can it be reused be used on the next part of the hood or will the coating product on the MF suede flash at the same time/rate as the ceramic coating on the car?

    Same question for removing coating with MF, one section of a panel and done or reusable for next section of a panel ?

    I bought the BF black edition ceramic, just figuring how many towels I need to have on hand for my giant truck.

    I can't personally speak for the Blackfire coating, but with most other coatings out there you can use the same applicator for the whole vehicle, as long as it stays clean. If it gets dirty or you drop it on the ground, I would use a fresh applicator. Using the same one will reduce product usage, and because you're continuously pouring more onto the applicator, the solvents will keep it from hardening until it dries.

    For removal, I would keep several very clean or new microfibers on hand. I like to use three at a time. One low pile like a Rag Company Pearl to "level" the coating. This basically is the last step of spreading it evenly and you want to wipe gently and uniformly. The second is to follow up and remove residue, and the third towel isn't necessary but I use it to buff off the final residue. Keep changing towels when you feel like it isn't working as effectively as it gets loaded with product. Then towel 2 becomes towel 1, towel 3 becomes towel 2, and the final wipe towel is always the cleanest.

    Apologies gr8almty1,

    A saw these questions of your but just haven't had time to get back to you.


    I'm in the same opinion and experience as crb001,

    Using the same one will reduce product usage, and because you're continuously pouring more onto the applicator, the solvents will keep it from hardening until it dries.

    My own experience is like stated above, the re-wetting of the face of the applicator with the product being used does seem to show the fresh solvents (from out of the bottle), do tend to keep the entire face of the applicator wet and not drying, hardening and becoming sticky.

    At the same time, if it could never hurt to use a a fresh side of either a patch of microfiber suede or my favorite, the coating-saver type foam block, switch to a different, clean side.

    See here,


    Review: Speed Master Coating Applicator

    These applicator's have a plastic liner behind the microfiber so they won't soak up and simply waster coating.





    Here, allow me to use some scissors to show you what I'm talking about...


    Here I've cut an applicator in half.






    I've removed the microfiber outside off of the foam block found in the inside. SEE the plastic film?






    I rarely use the rigid foam blocks with the microfiber suede patches any longer.


    Besides saving your coating from simply soaking into the foam core, the foam blocks, (like the one pictured above), in my opinion and expereince are easier to use and do a better job of spreading out and laying down a thin layer of coating.
