Curing time (recommended):
2 hours (tropical/humid) / 12 hours (temperate/dry) or 0.5 hour Infrared assisted 40-50°C
– Surface dry (unaffected contact with water/rain)
4 days (tropical/humid) / 7 days (temperate/dry) with or without infrared assisted curing
– Unaffected contact with cleaning solutions
– Unaffected contact with contaminants (tree-sap/bird droppings etc.)
– Exposure to harsh environmental conditions
(Exposure before curing may result in diminished bonding, early deterioration of coating, occurrences
of water-spotting, etching or corrosion)
Appearance after curing: Optically transparent, visibly increased reflectivity
Solvent incompatibility:
N-Methylpyrrolidone (NMP), Tetrahydrofuran (THF), Chloroform, Ether.
(the use of products containing these solvents during application causes swelling/gelation)
Products containing solvents such as acetone, 1-propanol, methanol, water, 2-propanol (IPA) in small
amounts can be used with no significant impact.
(Contact Artdeshine to find out about product compatibility.)
Application
Before application of product, ensure surface is stripped of all existing products (waxes, sealants and
spray detailers etc.).
Working area should
– Minimise levels of dust, moisture, heat and environment contaminants for maximum bonding
effectiveness.
– Have sufficient lighting for better visibility of both top facing surfaces and side facing surfaces.
Combination of warm (<3000K) and cool lighting (>4000K) will help with a proper installation.
– Have appropriate ventilation systems to avoid inhaling of vapours/gas
– No open flames, lighted cigarettes, running ovens or heating devices (blow torches, heat guns
etc.)
Do not apply product under direct sunlight or a heated surface.
– Optimal surface temperature < 25°C.
– Optimal ambient temperatures < 32°C
If natural sedimentation occurs, shake the bottle well to evenly disperse the product and wait 1 minute
before unscrewing cap slowly to release gas build-up
1. Make all necessary preparation like compounding, polishing, claying, decontamination,
washing and cleaning before application process.
2. Utilise panel wipes, isopropyl alcohol (IPA), silicone removers to remove oil, fillers and
polishing compounds. (e.g. Artdeshine Silicone Remover/Prep)
3. Drip 8-10 (16-20 if priming applicator) drops of product by dragging tip of bottle in a
straight line to and fro on black applicator pad provided (any suede, microfiber applicator
block or pads are suitable).
4. Apply onto surface no larger than 1.5m x 1.5m in circular motion and cross-hatch motion
for even coverage.
5. Applied product should look like spreading liquid glue, not dripping wet.

6. Product will turn show visible “rainbow” flashes of colors after 15-20 seconds.
7. Starting from the edges of applied area, wipe off excess with a clean and dry microfiber
(MF) towel. (grabby feeling MF towel is normal for this step)
8. Using another clean and dry MF towel, buff off all residue, hazing, high-spots and smears
in circular motion.
9. Check for any remaining high-spots, smearing, uneven colour tones and streaking.
10. Ensure surface is clear and surface feels slick. (smoothness can be felt when buffing with
MF towel)
11. Repeat step all steps for adjacent areas. Take extra care at edges where applied and un-
applied surfaces meet. Always apply and buff over the edges to ensure smooth joining.
Multiple coats is not necessary and can be a wastage of product. A maximum of 2 coats will be more
than sufficient and to cover any missed out areas and enhance coating mechanical strength,
additional layers do not represent increased durability.
To apply multiple coats, allow 2 hours (tropical/humid) or 12 hours (temperate/dry) in between coats.
Do not apply other coating, sealant, wax and spray detailer products immediately before and after
application as this will affect the performance and bonding.
Any issues should be resolved using above methods in the first 15 minutes after application as the
coating will not have started curing.
Last resort removal 1 hour after application can be done with Artdeshine Silicone Remover/Prep or
any panel wipes and IPA.
After 24 hours, any issues will have to be resolved by removal of the coating and re-applying. This
can be done with a polishing machine using fine pads and compounds.
Recommended After-Care (Before Full Curing)
Before 0.5 hour (infrared assisted) or 2 hours:
– Do not allow surface to be exposed to rain or water.
– Do not allow surface to come into contact with harsh substances (bird droppings, plant sap,
bug splatter, cleaners, shampoos etc.).
– If contact occurs, gently clean with damp MF towel or soft napkin using fresh water. Wipe dry
with another dry MF towel or soft napkin.
Before 7 days with or without infrared assisted curing:
– Do not allow surface to come into contact with harsh substances (bird droppings, plant sap,
bug splatter, cleaners, shampoos etc.).
– If contact occurs, wipe gently with damp MF towel or soft napkin using fresh water.
If substance has dried, place slightly wet MF towel or wet napkin to soften before wiping off
gently.
– Exposure to rainwater will not affect curing process.
– However, ensure that rainwater is not on the surface for prolonged periods by drying with MF
towel when weather permits.
– Any harsh substances or rainwater on surface exposed to sunlight and heat may cause
stains, marks and spotting on uncured coating.
– Cleaning can be done with a damp MF towel using fresh water. Wipe and dry gently.
– Cleaning can also be done with Artdeshine Graphene Detailer/GrapheneSeal and Bio Nano in
higher dilution (1:19) with fresh water.

Recommended After-Care (After Full Curing)
Every 1-2 weeks:
– Washing should be done with pH neutral or paint compatible shampoo. (e.g. Artdeshine
Organic Cleaner/AlkClean or Citrus Cleaner/CitrusClean)
Every 1-2 months (user preference):
– Washing can be done with Alkali shampoo (e.g. Artdeshine Organic Cleaner/AlkClean) no
more than pH 12 for deeper cleansing and removal of oils/traffic film. Oil trapped in the pores
or on the surface will affect the water repellence performance.
Every 2-4 months:
– Application of ceramic spray sealants. (e.g. Artdeshine Bio Nano or Graphene
Detailer/GrapheneSeal)
Every 4-6 months:
– Removal of embedded contaminants using fine grade clay bars or cloth. This is important in
keeping the surface smooth and slick. A rough surface will affect the water repellence
performance.
– Application of ceramic spray sealants. (e.g. Artdeshine Bio Nano or Graphene
Detailer/GrapheneSeal) for slickness, gloss and water repellent properties.
– Application of Artdeshine Graphene Maintenance/Boost Coating for better water repellent
effect and self-cleaning properties.
Every 1 or 2 years:
– Application of Artdeshine Graphene BX/Boost Coating if initial water repellent effect or
slickness has deteriorated.
Do not apply any other coating, wax or sealant products as additional or top coats unless
recommended by Artdeshine as it may affect or alter the coating’s performance. Water soluble
products like spray sealants are milder and more suitable. More information on product compatibility
or other Artdeshine products for after-care is available through your distributors or contact Artdeshine
directly for more information
