    Re: Meguiar's M788 Deep Crystal Ceramic Coating Kit

    Being this is a true coating, are there any special procedures to remove it before putting new coating on? Say, we apply a fresh coating, then a year or more goes by and ready to put all new coat on, what needs to be done to remove what is left of the existing coat so a fresh coating will bond properly?

    Yeah I figured after a year or more, when re coating at least going over the paint with a clay bar and either polish or compound or both depending on the swirls and overall condition, but curious if you need to go to a higher level then this to remove the remaining coating, like is it tough enough that even a product like M105 isn't strong enough to remove it?

    Most coatings form a thin layer than a polish is often enough to remove them. Coatings are not as thick as one thinks. I have played around with many coatings and all are easily removed with a medium cut polish. It is even easier as the coating ages.

    Actually, M788 Deep Crystal Ceramic Paint Coating does not require a lot of special preparation for a re-application. If the vehicle needs to be clayed, then yes, it should be. If the vehicle needs to be decontamined with a product like our D1801 Iron Decon, yes, it should be & will help with performance of any protection product applied. Compound if needed yes. Application of a finishing polish at minimum like our M210 Ultra Pro Finishing Polish will significantly help with performance of the coating. Other than that, simply an application of the included M122 Surface Prep Spray is required. This was part of the strategy; the ability to do easy touch ups/re-coats. However, after a period of time 6 months, 1 year, etc. the chances that there is some contamination on the vehicle which should be addressed is moderate/high for most daily drivers, unless the vehicle is being cared for at a high level. If the vehicle needs to be clayed, it still should be.

    Glad to hear you are excited. Also, we would put this in the "coating" category. "Sealant" is more commonly referred to liquid or paste products, like our new M27 PRO Hybrid Ceramic Sealant.
