Want the ultimate paint protection without having to regularly apply wax and paint sealants to your vehicle? With a single Lucid No. 9 application you won't have to worry about waxing your ride for up to 36 months!
Lucid No. 9 is a hand applied ceramic coating that provides your vehicle with up to 3 years of protection! It is not a wax or paint sealant. It provides a protective barrier 100X thicker than that provided from a traditional wax or sealant.
It can be applied to paint, metal, glass, wheels and other nonporous surfaces. It's very easy to apply and can be done by the detailing novice. Be sure to check out the short tutorial video below.
- Single coat provides up to 36 months of contaminant, environmental and UV protection
- Makes future cleaning an ease and significantly faster
- Anti-dust benefits makes surfaces stay clean longer
- Maximizes gloss and hydrophobic abilities
- Scratch resistant, 9H hardness coating
In the ceramic coating industry, the pencil hardness test is used to verify the hardness of coatings and their scratch resistance. The test uses constant pressure and variable hardness of the graphite lead as its fundamental principle. Pencils of varying hardness, starting with the hardest lead, are moved over the surface under a fixed pressure of 7.5 Newtons and at a fixed angle of 45 degrees to the surface. The degree of hardness of the graphite pencil which damages the surface is taken as a measurement for the coating hardness rating.
Lucid No. 9 and Lucid Pro Series score 9H on the pencil hardness test, which is the highest strength rating possible. The standard clear coat used by automotive manufacturers varies from only a 2H to 4H rating.
Pre-Coating Preparation: Clay and polish painted surfaces to remove any imperfections prior to coating application. Hand wash vehicle after polishing, then clean all surfaces with DDP Coating Prep.
Directions: For best results, use on a cool surface. 1) Wet applicator in X-pattern with Lucid No. 9 to prime pad. 2) Apply to panel in 3–4 sq. ft. section using up & down and side-to-side motions. 3) Wipe saturated panel with clean microfiber towel to lightly polish – removing any streaks or high spots. 4) Repeat steps 1–3 on subsequent panels.
Allow treated area to dry naturally. Avoid driving vehicle for at least 3-4 hours after application. Keep vehicle from rain and do not wash for at least 24 hours.
Pro Tip: When applying coating work in the following order: painted surfaces, headlight/tail light lenses, glass, plastic, metal, rims. The wheels are always coated last to prevent applicator contamination.
