Tough Coat

Is it OK to apply Tough Coat over a polish like Glare Professional or Koch Chemie Speed Polish
Thanks
Dave

Tough coat is not a fussy product, will sit quite happily over a glaze, all in one or bare paint.

I have a question, how long can you use tough coat? I have this bottle for quite some time and I never used it, because I used spirit instead. Now I wanted to try it, but I am not sure if I can still use it.

It should be fine to use, just give it a really good shake before use and when you are nearly finished tip the bottle upside down and use the last bit of tought coat left in the sprayhead or remove the sprayhead and run some water through the head before putting it away so the spray does not block up.

I really would not recommend putting tough coat over a glaze simply because the durability of the the sealant will be horrific. Use Tough Coat and use the glaze over the top once it has cured.

I find that the durability of Tough Coat is much improved used over bare paint (or glass, for that matter - it seals side windows very nicely!)

Once cured and buffed off (which will be temperature dependent) I would just apply Radiance straight on top.
