VERY SATISFIED WITH THE APPLICATION PROCESS AND OVERALL END LOOK!

The coating more closely resembled other professional grade coatings I've used in shop applications.

(Beta Tester Review) Stunning results.

Hey yeah. I was given this product free of charge in order to review as part of a beta testing program. I wasn't given any instructions on how to test or what to look for but only my honest opinion.
I used MAX on a 97 RX-7. Not too many around these days not at least in Virginia. I watched a couple of videos online on how to prep and apply a ceramic coating. Not something I've done before and I was actually quite nervous about the entire process.
I applied the coating on a Sunny October day. 82 degrees outside, 10 mph winds, and humidity was below 40 percent. Prep was performed the previous day and the day of application I did an IPA wipedown.. Total time to apply was less than 2 hours for a single coating.
Stunning results. I had no expectations but getting these results has turned me into a ceramic coating fan! Thank you AvalonKing for allowing me to be a part of the Beta Test team and for making such a fantastic product!
What do you have ready for me to test out next?

(Beta Tester Review) The picture speaks for itself.

My old navy buddy Dale reached out to me to test a new-to-me kind of product on my Firebird. I don't like taking chances with my bird but Dale and I go back a few decades.
I prepped the car, I didn't need to do much as I keep her cherry. Washed and removed a layer of wax with AvalonKing's Prep wash shampoo.
The picture speaks for itself. If we had this stuff back on our deployments it would have cut down on our cleaning parties and given us more time to chase skirts!
Really happy with this coating and I'm sold on MAX. I am going to put in an order get some of these kits out there for spares and as Christmas gifts for my kids.

(Beta Tester Review) The surface of the car is slick, I doubt anything can stick to this!

I live up in the Panhandle of Florida. I spend my days driving up and down the 10 into Mobile and let's just say we have a major bug problem. I never tried Armor ShieldIX so I don't have that to compare with. I have used Ceracote products previously and they haven't helped one bit with the love bugs. I was able to get good shine and water beading but aside from that I felt let down.

So on to MAX. AK reached out and asked me to BETA TEST one of their new coatings so I said perfect timing for my Civic.
85 degrees, 65% Humidity. I was able to find a dry day and get the coating on. Super easy to apply and man such a fast curing time! Just 4 hours and it was great because it rains all the time up here.
Did it help with the bugs? Never easier! the surface of the car is slick, I doubt anything can stick to this!

(Beta Tester Review) I definitely like the faster cure time

I was lucky enough to get to try out the new Armor Shield IX pro. It last 3-5years and cures in 1-4 hours I was told. I washed my truck today, twice with purple power car soap, clay barred,isopropyl, applied the armor shield Ix pro after about 3-4 hours of work it came out pretty nice. It was about 80F out 25% humidity and it was in the shade. It seems like it flashes a little faster than the original one. I should have buffed and polished it too but I didn’t really have the time that would take all day. It doesn’t really seem to work the best on windows it is hard to buff the residue off. I feel like the Armor Shield Lite is much better for windows and black plastic trim. But I definitely like the faster cure time because It always gets rained on or pollen, sap, etc.. getting on it before it gets a chance to cure because it gets parked in my driveway under trees. Hoping I can get 5 years out of MAX, but really I'll be happy with 3.

(Beta Tester Review) Exceptional beading

.
Trial Subject: was a 2016 Jeep Compass. This subject has spent significant time in Northern Virginia and Upstate New York.
Process:
The subject was washed with a mixture of Dawn and car soap. This mixture was in the wash bucket and was also applied using a foam cannon. Iron Cut was applied to help remove contaminants from the paint. The subject was dried and moved inside the garage. The pain was clayed. A single stage polish was completed using Mezerna polish. Single pass was determined to be sufficient for the owners expectations. The entire car (hard surfaces only – not rubber) was wiped down with IPA / Water mix 2 times prior to application of AS IX. The subject was coated and buffed off per instructions for AS IX. Coating 1 was allowed to cure for approximately 1.5 hrs prior to application of coat 2. All hard surfaces of the car were coated including paint, hard plastics, head lights, tail lights and wheels. The subject will be kept in the garage overnight as rain has been intermittent and forecast overnight. The cure time for the new product is expected to be 3-4 hrs but our high humidity may have impacted the curing time.
Conditions –
Partly sunny to cloudy.
Temperature range from 70- 88 F
Humidity was higher than 60%.
Rain began soon after completing coat 1 and continued during the application of the second coat.
I was able to observe exceptional beading on the surface. After a splash test and rain the car was completely dry and no need to dry whatsoever.
