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
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.

Easier than expected
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.
