Top tips to achieve the ultimate gloss

Achieve that ultimate level of gloss by following our expert tips and by using our simple 3-step process that includes: cleaning, polishing then adding wax or ceramic coating. As car experts, we emphasize the need for all three steps, especially the latter. Here’s exactly how to get your clients raving about how incredible the level of gloss is with these simple tips:

1. Decontaminate and meticulously clean exterior 

To achieve that glossy glow it all starts with a decontamination process. This is sometimes overlooked as one of the most important steps but it is in fact where all the marks and scratches can be tracked down too. Microscopic dirt and grit particles can aggressively inflict permanent damage if not removed carefully and routinely. 

 

Good wash techniques are the key to maintaining the shine and here are our exact tips that you should follow to start the process to achieve the perfect shine: 

Make sure to have the right cleaning mitts and microfiber towels that won’t cause any damage whilst cleaning the surfaces. And to take things further, keep your buckets clean to avoid cross-contamination and re-adding those dirt particles to the surface. 

 

The first step should always be to rinse the exterior to remove as much loose dirt as possible before taking things further. 

 

 

This is the step when most swirl marks and scratches occur. Make sure the tools you use are clean otherwise you’ll be dragging around fine dirt particles that will cause damage to the paintwork.

 

Ensure that you don’t cross-contaminate with any brake dust by starting with the wheels first.

Also for extra products to help your clients keep the exterior clean we recommend a waterless wash, alongside a microfiber towel for day-to-day upkeep. It can be used almost anywhere, no hose, bucket, or rinsing is required. The advanced technology contains a water spot-free formula with a high lubricity that, when used as directed, protects the surface against swirling and scratching. So that’s it, a few sprays and wipes then the exterior is clean!

 

If they are looking for a temporary layer of gloss we recommend a Hybrid Ceramic Spray that is unlike any ceramic spray in the detailing world. Thanks to nano-ceramic technology and the power of Onyx Coating polymer technology helps increase water, bugs, and grime repellency. Our hybrid ceramic spray leaves behind a mirror gloss finish and streak-free finish. 

 

2. Polishing the exterior

This step is often the most meticulous of them all as often this is where swirl marks and scratches are inflicted. Once the exterior is fully decontaminated, it’s time to polish. Here are our expert tips on how to do this:

 

We can’t emphasize enough how easy it is for microscopic dirt particles to fall onto the surface when you are working with polishing tools. 

 

Invest in the right tools and microfiber towels ensuring that they are clean.

 

Not only this but put the machine on a higher speed and gradually reduce both to normal levels as you use the polishing liquid and as it turns clean. 

 

Let the towel do the work and avoid re-inflicting swirl marks

 

 

3. Adding in a Ceramic Coating 

Now onto the final step to achieving the ultimate level of gloss, applying a ceramic coating. This not only adds the ultimate shine but adds a level of protection that has up to a 10 in hardness.
