    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Paint Coating

    Mine arrived today, plan on trying it out as soon as the weather allows. Clean vehicles in the garage and I dont want it to rain/snow on them while the other is in there. Stuff says it needs to be 60F to use.

    You also ideally want it to cure for at least 12 - 24 hours after the two coats are applied prior to any water exposure. Ideally 7 days.

    Hi Nick, do you know what's the risk if it's used under 60F temperatures? It's been hovering around 50-60 here in my area, so I'm wondering if I should just wait until spring. Thanks

    I am glad you brought this up because I want to make a big point about this, it is very important to apply Hybrid Paint Coating at or above 60F. It can potentially not set up properly & potentially significantly impact performance if applied below 60F. It is OK if during the subsequent 24 hours & beyond into the full 7 day curing if it gets cold & below 60F, but again for application, above 60F.

    Another point which should be mentioned is that if you apply Hybrid Paint Coating & then in the next week are going to wash the vehicle, salt roads, or rain, this can potentially significantly affect the performance as well, this really goes for any coating. You really want to apply at a time when you are going to have decent weather.

    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Paint Coating

    Hello, I have several questions about the Hybrid Paint Coating as somebody new to coatings and ceramic products

    1. After 1 year or the product wears out, what do you need to do? Can you simply reapply again after a wash and prep (compound/polish), or do you need to do something to remove what remains of the old coat first? What if I want to switch back to traditional waxes?

    2. After applying this coating, do you recommend following up with any of your ceramic wax or detailer products? Would the bead booster be more appropriate, and if so, what is the difference between the bead booster and the ceramic wax/ detailer?

    3. You mentioned temperature of application being at least 60 degrees. I live in Northern California and the highs have been around 58, is that close enough? What if I heated the garage during application, would it need to stay heated for 24 hours or just a couple hours while spraying and wiping?

    4. As somebody new to applying a coating, can I screw this up in a way where the car is going to look bad and my wife kills me? I understand poor form may impact performance of the product, but is there a chance at ruining my new car? I am comfortable with all the prep work and getting that done well, and I understand the coating is going to lock in the "current state", my question is more about risks when applying the coating.

    Thanks for your time! Excited to try this stuff out!

    I literally just finished applying this to my wife's MDX. I can safely say for 4., this is really hard to screw up in terms of high spots or anything like that.

    I mostly have experience applying CQuartz UK, while easy I still had issues time to time with high spots, not removing soon enough or removing too soon etc.

    Without a doubt, this Meguiars coating was extremely forgiving and easy to apply. In fact I was able to do 3 panels at a time, came back and it wipes off super clean. The most amazing part compared to something like CQuartz, it's super slick as you wipe, vs CQuartz which feels grabby.

    For your question #2, I believe they did mention you can maintain with Bead Booster or HCDetailer, which is probably what I'll do every couple months or so.

    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Paint Coating

    Now I have my own question for Nick again, it's said 2 coats is recommended for best performance. I just finished doing one coat but don't have enough time to do another one yet. Is it safe to apply a second coat, say 12 hours later? 24? 7 days?

    Hi symmetrical,

    Great question. We actually do not recommend applying the second coat any later than 1 hour due to the fact that the coating will start setting up and be very hydrophobic. The second coat would likely not do anything because it will not stick on top of a freshly applied, beginning to cure coating.

    What you can do is for the vehicle's first wash in a week or so, is to check for any spots with flat water behavior. If there was a missed spot, re-apply in that area.

    Thanks, I'll check it out. The "shop talk" video was pretty good too (the second video on the OP).
