Very easy and looks great
July 22, 2020
I bought the kit with the applicator and applied to 2015 gray Audi A3. I removed the cap from the bottle and used dropper instead to apply to applicator more easily. Sure... the prep time took 6 hours to get the body looking perfect, but well worth it if you want the coating to preserve perfection. I applied in about 75 degrees condition and the flash time was about 30s, easy to see. This is my first coating and Blackfire PRO was easy to apply and remove. The car looks great and so much so... it was at Audi service recently and they commented how glossy it looked. Very pleased with the product and now 2 more cars to do. And looks like there is enough left in bottle for at least one more.
ProsEasy to use and quick flash time Noticeable gloss finish

Bought and shipped through a friend from US. After compounding and polishing with menzerna compounds, cleaned up with IPA. Pro coating was very easy to apply and the slickness & gloss was very nice. In hot climate it took just 30 sec for flashing and buff off was very easy.
ProsEasy to apply even on hot climate
ConsAs of now NONE
Easy to work with, great results

Never used a ceramic coating before and I wanted it to last, so I bit the bullet and bought this product. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Will be interesting to see how it holds up to a Chicago winter.
ProsEasy to apply and once flashed, easy to wipe down. Looks great.
ConsI wouldn't call the prep work a con, but it could enough that some people wouldn't want to make the effort.
4th vehicle done and happy with all.

Did my wife's Rav4 first over a year ago and it is still beading up. Its her daily driver and garaged kept. Then i did my Ford Explorer that had 153,000 on it before selling it. The dealer said he never saw one that old and that clean! Bought a Jeep Wrangler and processed that vehicle with all Blackfire products and my BOSS 21 buffer. Smaller areas were done with my Porter Cable 5". That never looked so good, I get Compliments all the time on the looks and shine. I just finished with my Chev. Silverado Pickup truck. 90% of any watermarks came off and finished up with the Ceramic Pro coating from Blackfire. See for your self how it looks. My grandsone left me his little car to do until he comes back to visit. Thanks Mike Phillips for the class i attended and the confidence to do this on my own.
Prosproduct is easy to apply and remove.
Conswatch the humidity when buffing off the ceramic coating.

I washed n clayed my car. I used the pro primer polish and waited an hour. I applied the ceramic coating. I found this to be easy to apply and remove. I previously used the crystal coat and I found it to be a nightmare to work with. I let the car sit in garage overnight to fully cure and took it to a local car show and it looked amazing. I received a lot of compliments
ProsI like the ease of application and final results. awesome product
Simple to use, great finish!

First time I have ever done a ceramic coating, and man was it easy! After 10 hours of paint correction, it took me about 1.5 hours per coat to put the ceramic coating on. I did everything including the windows. It looks great. It was about 40 degrees out and the humidity was high. It flashed quickly even in these conditions. Was VERY easy to buff off! I am thrilled with the look. Time will tell on the durability of the coating!
ProsEasy to use! Wipes off easy after flashing! Time will tell on durability.
ConsAs with any coating, requires Alot of prep work, but that doesn't go against the product. Having to leave the vehicle in a garage for the cure time can suck if it's your daily driver, but we'll worth it to protect your investment.

Blackfire Pro Ceramic IS the BEST
December 10, 2018
I have detailed my own car for more years then I would like to admit .... I purchased a new SUV and was looking at the new stuff on the market ... stopped by my local body shop who also has a detailing business and he told me about how they Ceramic coat vehicles AND the $800 cost in having that done. I was floored by the cost. He also stated they do the wheels inside and out by taking them off. How hard would that be? So I got the Ceramic coating and applicator and suede cloth pack and some prep to prepare and clean the paint etc. for application. Even though it is a new vehicles I used clay on the finish. Well 5 hours later a diamond. What a shine and such a slick finish. In the rain and yes some snow it rolls right off AND all coated areas do not hold the film and dirt as much as before it being coated. Highly recommended
ProsEasy to apply and remove .... just follow the easy instructions
ConsIf you by chance you miss an area it will show once dried. Applying an additional coat over the prior coated and not coated areas will not blend it in. Best to use a compound and lightly do that area and then Ceramic coat ... no biggie!
Great shine, difficult removal

This is very easy to apply and very little is needed. If you wait too long to buff off, you have a real job on your hands. In my case on a cloudy day at about 84 degrees, 5 minutes was too long. There are some spots that I could not buff off and are still hazy after about a month. I am not sure how to remove them other than a fine rubbing compound. The instructions say to wait on buffing until the product flashes off. I am not sure at what point I should start buffing. I wish the instructions would state what the finish will withstand when cleaning so that you could know if later spot applications are needed. I had to use alcohol to remove some insect residue. I do not know if that affects the SiO2 or not.
ProsGood gloss, beads water well.
ConsBuffing off takes a lot of effort. The material tries to grab the microfiber towel which requires a lot of effort to overcome. Not like wax. Even after curing out, the surface is not slick like a wax job.
Ceramic coating by simple process

The kit came with paint prep, so I thoroughly washed the car, used the paint prep to remove oils and applied the coating in small areas. Then I coated again, just for good measure. I'll have to wait and see how effective it is, because I'm not supposed to get it wet for a bit. Pretty simple.

I was intimated by Ceramic coatings after watching the Autogeek videos I ordered and was it easy.. Blackfire Ceramic was so easy it flashed quickly and doing a second coat right after the first saves you a ton of time...It’s crazy how hydrophobic this product is ...Only problem everyone you know will want you to do it to their car ..
ProsEase of Use

Very easy to apply, quick flash times and can apply a second coat right after the first. 50ml kit should be enough for 3 standard size vehicles although you might need a few extra suede applicators.
