For the best results from the first application of Permanon Supershine Products it is important to remove the wax and polish from the surface. It is easily accomplished by cleaning the surface with Simple Green Precision Aircraft or an equivilent product. I learned from my experince with my wifes vehicle that not doing this step causes you to use more product than required. When I first began using the product I skipped this important step and had to apply Platinum more often than I should have. As the wax wore away I finally applied Platinum enough times that the entire car has the shine and positive attributes I have come to expect from a treated surface. Permanon will adhere over wax, but wax only lasts weeks and the Permanon on the wax is soon gone.
There are several opinions of how to apply Permanon but for the best results spraying and drying with a microfiber is by far the most effective. With a couple of exceptions. With Motorcycle's I prefer to blow off as much water as possible then follow up with a microfiber towel inspecting for water spots. I use this method in the engine compartment of the cars as well. I recommend investing in car or motorcycle dryer. There are other methods but some I consider unsafe such as compressed air. On the car the blower along with a microfiber towel allows you to blow the formulation into the nooks and crannies beneath the trim, into the gaps in the panels, and blow the water out so you don't have that pesky drainage you have to revisit every few minutes until it's all drained out. The blower and towel is the only way to go on wheels in my opinion.
Permanon Yacht Pro Professional is the only Supershine formulated to use undiluted or neet in addition to being diluted. Put a small amount in a bucket and apply it on the surface with a microfiber towel. This method of application is recommended for high wear areas and where there is severe exposure to UV. Yacht Professional has several applications besides Marine. Yacht Pro is specially formulated to provide maximum UV protection in other harsh environments. It can be used to extend the gloss on gel coats found on RV's, Farm Equipment, Dock Boxes, Lawn Tractors, and ATV's to name a few.
