Pro Guide For Matte Finish

Read Below for Information from the experts:

  • Always wash and dry the vehicle yourself for best results.

  • Premium Microfiber Wash Mitts and Premium Microfiber Towels for drying cloths are a must. Poor quality, dirty toweling will create swirls and scratches that can’t be removed form a matte finish.

  • 2 Buckets with grit guards in both buckets will also help reduce the chance of scratching.

  • We do not recommend using clay, polishes, compounds or swirl removers on matte finishes. If you do use a compound or swirl remover, the finish will begin to look blotchy and uneven. Unfortunately, there is no way to remove scratches, swirls, stains or any other below surface defect in matte finishes, so they key is to use the right product and techniques to start with.

  • Traditional waxes or paste waxes should not be used as they may also change the appearance of the matte finish. They could create blotchy and uneven appearance.

  • Spray Waxes, like Final Protectant with Hybrid Ceramic are safe to use  and work great to add protection without changing the appearance of the matte finish. Make sure to use a clean Premium Microfiber Towel  to ensure a scratch and swirl free finish.
