ProteX is a high-tech polymer sealant for your car, plane or boat that’s easy to apply and produces a deep, lustrous shine that outlasts the most popular waxes by months. It can also be applied to windscreens (and other windows) to repel rain. NOTHING STICKS BUT THE SHINE!®
ProteX contains none of the free silicone oils found in some other products that are known to contaminate paint and cause problems when repainting.
ProteX should be applied to a cool (less than 85° F) dry surface out of direct sunlight. If the surface is too hot, the coating will cure before it has properly bonded to the surface, and it won’t perform up to its potential. ProteX is wiped on, allowed to dry to a haze for approximately 20 minutes, wiped off, then allowed to cure for 12 hours.
Curing is required to allow the monomers (polymer building blocks) that make up ProteX to attach to the surface being treated and to polymerize (crosslink) into a crystal-clear, impervious film. It is very important to allow ProteX to cure for 12 hours after the haze has been wiped off. If the coating is exposed to contamination such as oil, fuel, soot, water, cleaners, etc. before it has cured, the contaminants may interfere with the film, preventing the ProteX from achieving its maximum performance and durability.
ProteX PROTECTS AND BEAUTIFIES PAINTED METAL, GLASS, ACRYLIC, GEL COAT, FIBERGLASS, GLOSSY PLASTIC & POLISHED METAL SURFACES
ProteX is not meant to be used on porous surfaces, highly oxidized painted surfaces, or to fill fine scratches. It can be applied in multiple coats, allowing 8 hours curing time between coats for deeper color and greater depth of gloss. ProteX has a higher refractive index than waxes, so it produces richer, deeper looking colors and a lustrous long-lasting finish.
ProteX can be used over existing wax; however, the duration of protection will be reduced as the softer underlying wax degrades comparatively quickly.There is no reason to wax over ProteX. As we’ve already said, ProteX leaves a shinier, longer-lasting finish than wax… and the wax can’t adhere well to ProteX!
If a ProteX-treated surface needs repainting, normal paint preparation is all that’s required. Abrasive cleaners, polishes, rubbing compounds or chemical paint strippers will remove the ProteX film.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
- Shake well and apply to a clean, dry surface that is cool to the touch. Do not apply in direct sunlight or in temperatures greater than 85° F.
- After ProteX dries to a haze (about 20 minutes), simply wipe it off. Unlike waxes that require strenuous rubbing or buffing to remove, ProteX easily wipes on and off.
- Allow to cure for 12 hours out of the elements.
- For optimum protection, reapply every 4-6 months as needed.
