SHOWROOM SHINE AND SURFACE PROTECTION WORTHY OF A KING

Meet ARMOR SHIELD IX by AvalonKing, the #1 ceramic coating on the planet. ARMOR SHIELD IX not only gives your car a professional shine and deep wet gloss, but its super-easy DIY application comes with everything you need right out of the box.

ARMOR SHIELD IX rejects UV rays, road grime, mud, pollen, acid rain, your father’s insults, bird droppings, and any other crud. While its hydrophobic properties simply whip water away, making your car wash easy like Sunday morning, we guarantee at least two year’s protection when adequately applied. ARMOR SHIELD IX’s translucent coating is also guaranteed to work on all vinyl wraps, paint protection films, clear bras, carbon fiber, and powder-coated surfaces. Go on, get coated by the King!

  • 1 x 30ml bottle of the world’s best DIY ceramic coating.
  • 1 x applicator block with comfort hold slots.
  • 3 x microfiber applicator suedes.

  • 1 x ultra-plush microfiber buffing towel.
  • 1 x clear and easy-to-follow set of instructions.
  • 1 x awesome car sticker to make your friends jealous. Yeah, suck-it-sideways, Steve!
  • Contrary to internet rumors, ARMOR SHIELD IX does not make you “younger, fitter, and better looking.” But buying it does prove that you are smarter.

Preparation is key, make sure you invest the time prepping the surface for optimum results.

  • Wash your car till it’s shining like a new button using AvalonKing’s Ceramic Prep Shampoo.
  • Rub down with an IPA solution to remove any residue from old chemicals, soaps, or sealants.
  • Apply coating as per instructions in a crosshatch pattern, section by section, buffing off as you go. Yes, it’s that easy!

Très bonne protection

Je fais un commentaire en français pour les francophones qui hésiterait à ce procurer du Avalon king, très bonne protection facile à appliquer, beaucoup de gloss, j'en ai même mis sur toutes les vitres, tout les plastiques ( qui sont redevenus noir et d'apparence neuve ) sur les roues. Ça fait une semaine maintenant et j'ai pu laver mon véhicule à nouveau, très facile à laver, beaucoup de propriété hydrophobe avec de grosse perle. Le véhicule est vraiment lisse au touché. Je recommande vraiment à tous

Made My Truck Slick

Armor Shield IX DIY made my truck look great. It is easy to wash and buzzard crap sheds off if you get bombed by one like I did. I was doing 65 when the stuff hit my windshield. It covered the whole windshield and just blew off like rain.

Outstanding Result

Eric, Product is AMAZING! Bought three kits and did two vehicles. Product was easy to use as advertised. Although the pictures do not do it justice; both vehicles are 2002 (19 years old). Performed all recommended prep work. After detailing the Forrest Green car it wouldn’t look good the next morning; now we have a great result that lasts for weeks and refreshes easily with a quick wash. Many thanks and keep up the good work. Frank McMahon Manassas, VA

Snake oil

Essentially, the company is just getting creative with words; sales pitch. Tried it on 3 cars. Washed vehicles once a week for one month. Product "dissolved" eventually. Still all 3 cars...small road stones continued to chip the hood. Just buy a decent car wax....works just as good.

    Hi there! We weren't able to link your privately provided email and you didn't include a name either for us to privately reach out to you or to verify that you ever purchased Armor Shield. I will assume that you aren't working for a competitor and that your comment here is sincere. We have 1000's of customers that have used Armor Shield and with great success. Because you had an issue doesn't mean that everyone that has or will have the same experience as you. Armor Shield is a DIY ceramic coating and with that comes a greater risk of failure. What can cause a failure? Well let me list a few things that may have led your poor results: 1) poor prep. You get back what you put in. ARmor Shield is based on science it isn't a magic solution. The coating will mirror the results of an excellent prep. If you perform a prep with the mindset of "let's get this part over with ASAP." well guess what? Your coating isn't going to last or be as impressive as you desired. 2) not waiting the 48 hours advised for the cure time before exposure to water. We advise 48 hours to cure because that is how long it takes for Armor Shield to reach maximum hardness. 3) poor after-care maintenance or exposure to products that may mask the coating. Can the coating fail prematurely? Of course, it can. Failures do occur and is why we do offer a 2-year warranty on the product. You are welcome to reach out to us via hello@avalonking.com and discuss the failure you had and we'll strive to figure out what caused the issue and to provide real-world solutions to make it right. We certainly are willing to offer replacements to try again regardless of the cause of failure. And if you don't want to try again. We stand behind the product so do reach out to us with more detailers so you can give us the opportunity to turn this bad situation around for you.

This product is amazing!

I went through the application process, which wasn't hard at all. I was able to do two full coats on my 2021 Ford Ranger and still have some left with one bottle! I was blown away by the packaging alone! Then went through a mud puddle, (once it was good and cured) the mud dried on my truck for a few days. Then with one light rain all the mud was gone! I highly recommend armor shield IX! I've included a picture of a reflection of the sky from my hood after applying the coating.

Shiny and catches a lot of attention

It took me several hours to prep the car. Double washed it, clay bared, then washed again, and finally ipa wipe down. Then went applying it. I did it in 90 degree heat although the car was a bit cooler due to the recent washing and wipe down. Flash time was sub 1 minute. I've got a pearl white 370z so it doesn't add quite the shine as it would with something with a darker color, yet I'm still very satisfied with the smooth feel and shiny look I got.

Love the Armor Shield

I finally got to use the ceramic coating after weeks of wet weather and humid conditions. Gave me time to plan my prep. I did it all in my garage so I was at least able to control the humidity a little. I was really nervous but had emailed back and forth with support and they're all great. Hard to mess this up. I did the prep on my new Tesla, shampooed it, IPA wiped and went to town. Results were what I was hoping for. Looks brilliant.
