Williams Ceramic coating application

My friend wants me to apply a ceramic coating to his BMW X5. He was given a Williams Ceramic coating kit but there's no instructions in the box. Just a 60ml bottle, 2 applicator pads and a microfibre towel and some gloves.

I know it's not the best coating in the world but he wants to use it. Does anyone have any experience on laying down this product?

I've applied CSL & Exo before but wanted to know if I apply and remove the same way or do you leave it a little longer before buffing??

The car will have had a full decontamination and a single stage polish before it goes on obviously.

Any help would be appreciated.

Is there any way of getting hold of the company and asking for instructions for application and removal?!
Surely they must have it in a PDF they can forward to you?

Tried that. Company called Ultimotive ltd won't give out information unless you're a qualified Williams CC technician. Plus there's nothing online with regards to application. Just their sales speil and after shots on YouTube.

Approved technician

I would try contacting an approved technician.

Make out like you want their service to coat your car but tell them your worried abbot the application process and if they could clear up a few question like

How long does it take?
How do they apply it?

If they think it will win them a sale they will more than likely tell you!

Their are a few technicians out their so if one does not work try the next one.

Good luck

To be honest all ceramic coating tend to go on in the same matter, but if you are not 100% sure then don't do it simple..

Just why would you want this on your car? It’s not a ceramic like Ceramic Pro or gtechniq, it is only designed to protect against the effects of UVB and will NOT protect against scratches.
This was applied to my car before i bought it and it’s hopeless, i dare say you could machine polish it off very easily and if that is the case then i will be using a sealant before topping up with a custom wax i am having created

Must of missed this one! 5-10 mins per panel before buffing? Sounds about right for this product compared to Gtechniq and others. Oh well , onwards and upwards.

If your a technician for applying this and someone asked you how long it would take or how you applied it would you answer a genuine customer as these seam like valid questions and how would you tell if they were a genuine customer it it by the fact the asked a question?

If I was paying hundreds to have this applied I would ask these question and a whole lot more and expect the answers if not I would find someone else, simple! Avoiding these question if asked would also give the impression of inexperience or lack of knowledge and potential customer would not trust your service.

My car is my pride and joy and if you couldn't tell me what you were doing to it I wouldn't let you any ware near it!

Why is it such a secret anyway the Gtechniq stuff is by far superior and anyone can find out how to apply it. Seams to me something dodgy is afoot
