Gyeon can coat question

Hi,

Anyone used Gyeon can coat ? I'm sue there must be a few.

Durability aside is there any improvement on hydrophobic , gloss and self cleaning ability over the wet coat .

My car paint is swirl free and normally has a decent coat of wax CG Pete53 or similar. Not brave enough to apply a full ceramic coating outdoors as I don't have a garage or ability to work indoors.

Been using wet coat after the odd wash to extend wax life and increase hydrophobic effect.

cheers

I was very interested in can coat aswell. but I get the impression you really wanna treat it like any other coating. ie extended curing time, need to be left indoors for a while afterwards.

you may be best sticking with wet coat, cos youll get months of protection, and it really does have similar gloss and self cleaning ability. and youll not get maring resistantance without going for one of the more traditional coatings, with a bit of thickness to them.

wet coat and can coat are really only atoms thick on your paintwork.

I have Can Coat on my daily driver and would say it has the slight edge in water behaviour over Wet Coat. I've found that in the 2 months it's been on the car stays a little cleaner plus the longevity is in another league. I maintain it with Cure and Wet Coat. I applied Cure after the first month and Wet Coat after the second and will continue like this. The water behaviour never ceases to amaze me each time I wash the car!
Can Coat is very easy to apply and they recommend not getting it wet for 12 hours if memory serves.
This may be handy:

I’ve used Can Coat quite a lot and much prefer to use this rather than Wet Coat. Gives a much better finish and performs better than Wet Coat. 2 coats, an hour apart, and it will last for nearly a year. You could use Wet Coat Maybe once a month or every couple of months but I prefer to use Cure as a drying aid, diluted 1:1, and that keeps it topped up and performing.

Thank you for the feed back ,

TBH I'd love to try can coat as I am trully amazed at what wet coat does but I have no garage facilities and thsi is my only concern.

Has anyone applied this outdoors and left for 12 hours without issue ? Obviously I'd check the weather forecast to ensure it's not going to rain.

I'm just concerned about general fall out and dust resting on the coating while it cures.

thanks again to everyone who has replied - very helpful feedback

Mine was all done in the driveway - that's why I went with Can Coat over a full on ceramic coating. It's very slick straight away and dust etc won't do any harm.

I’ve applied it outside and left the. St stood outside without issue. Just coincide the application with a good forecast when no rain is due.
