Being a flat surface it allows you to cover more area and is great for cross-hatching your coating application. It is medium-firm, which means the sponge core conforms and glides easily across curved and contoured surfaces.
The pile on the terry microfiber material is lightweight and short, so the microfiber absorbs minimal product while applying our coatings evenly and smoothly.
This feature also has the added benefit of limiting excess product being built up which can harden excessively and become tacky as the coating begins to cure.
Perfect size for applying ceramic coatings. Nicely distributes the the coating. I prefer this over the "block" wrapped with some cloth.
I am a mobile detailer and do occasional ceramic coatings probably done about 50 cars. When this product was released I immediately fell in love with it and have done roughly 10 cars with this product. Great results, easy application and easy removal. Just remember flash times vary in different climates.
This applicator is the perfect size for not over-applying any product. Thus far I've used it in combination with a ceramic coating, ceramic wax, and just yesterday with a leather conditioner. Taking this review one step further, the density of the foam is spot on, and on I go again about the size of this product, you can use this applicator like a scalpel avoiding rubber and porous trim pieces easily. I can't limit this product only to ceramic coatings because there is way too much potential with this applicator in other aspects of detailing.
Using these to apply a ceramic or graphene base coating makes the job go very smooth!!!!!
Nice applicator, the two colors made it easy to tell which side was for the product. If you are planning to use it on a lot of textured plastic, buy a spare as the plastic can be very abusive.
