How To Apply


R1 Coatings™ Application Instructions:

Any polishing or paint correction should be completed before applying R1 Coatings™. If you're happy with the condition of your finish, make sure your vehicle has been thoroughly washed and dried. When applying a coating, wear protective gloves. Your vehicle should be out of direct sunlight and in a well-ventilated area with good lighting.

Step 1:

Clean the vehicle surface with R1 Coatings™ Prep to remove any remaining polish, wax, and surface contaminants. Mist on and wipe off with a clean microfiber towel.

Step 2:

Starting with a small section or body panel, drip product along the length of the applicator block and apply in a cross-hatching pattern.

Step 3:

Depending on conditions such as temperature and humidity, wait about a minute for product to cure or until there is a visible rainbow haze.

Step 4:

Using 2 microfiber towels, use one to remove excess product and the second to polish to a clean shine. Be sure that all excess product is removed as any remaining product will be permanent.

Step 5:

Repeat process, panel by panel, until entire vehicle is complete.

Step 6:

Vehicle should be kept dry for at least 24 hours to allow product to fully cure and harden.


R1 Coatings™ Tips:

  • For added protection, a second coat can be applied. Wait at least 1 hour between coats.
  • To enhance protection, apply R1 Coatings™ Revive after 45 to 60 minutes of application or at any time after curing. Application is quick, simple, and recommended to use 2-4 times a year after washing.
