  • How do you apply Mighty Armour?

    Mighty Armour scratch resistant paint protection is applied with a cotton applicator pad. 4 to 5 daps of product need to put onto the pad, then wipe onto the painted surface directly using light gentle pressure, also applying the coating in a straight back and forth motion to an area no larger than a 1m2. After this area has had Mighty Armour applied immediately return to the start and proceed with buffing using the short fibre blue microfibre cloth, using light gentle pressure in a circular motion continue buffing until most of the residue has been removed, then switching to the long microfibre dark blue cloth continue using the same circular light gentle pressure buff until residue has completely gone and the surface has been left with a residue free clear shine. Leave the coating to fully cure for 48hrs. Visit the application video page ”how to apply Mighty Armour”

  • Before buffing, how large an area do I apply Mighty Armour to?

    Apply Mighty Armour to an area NO larger than 1m2. To start with we recommend working an area around 500mm x 500mm or a half a car door size or quarter of a bonnet at a time, then immediately buff residue off until surface is crystal clear free of residue using gentle pressure in a circular motion. Then move onto the next section.

  • Does Mighty Armour prevent scratches on my paint?

    Mighty Armour has a hardness rating of 9H which is the toughest coating on the market today. Mighty Armour will prevent light scuffs and scratches from general day to day wear and tear and off road driving. Please note Mighty Armour will not prevent high speed or high impact damage or scratches so care is still needed whilst off roading as Mighty Armour is not 100% guarantee to stop all scratches, but will assist  and help protect the paint from light damage.

  • Once Mighty Armour is applied will frost or heat damage the sealed surface?

    No, Mighty Armour is a protective sealant that will resist frost, extreme high and low temperatures, corrosion, UV rays, oxidisation & fading, salt water residue, hard water & calcium stains & much more from damaging the paint.

  • Do I need to wax or polish over Mighty Armour?

    No once applied Mighty Armour is engineered to maintain that glossy polished finish so there’s no need to polish or wax anymore for the life of the coating, which is up to 2 years.

  • Do I need to remove existing scratches before applying Mighty Armour?

    Yes, Mighty Armour has a high satan gloss so any existing scratches will be enhanced and will become much easier to see. The paint should be corrected by a qualified car detailer or by yourself using correct cut & polishing techniques. Mighty Armour does not fill in clear coat scratches. Once the paint is polished and Mighty Armour is applied and fully cured it will not only protect the paint but also the polished finish so you will have an amazing look for the entire life of the coating which up to 2 years.

  • How long does Mighty Armour take to cure?

    Mighty Armour takes 48hrs to fully cure and harden so the vehicle shouldn’t be driven during curing time, please note the vehicle can be driven after 24hrs but care must be given whilst driving during this period to avoid wet or dusty conditions as damage to the coating can happen, which can jeopardise the life and effectiveness of the coating.

  • How do I clean and will cleaning products damage Mighty Armour?

    A simple wash with a mild detergent or clean water with a chamois to remove any remaining droplets is sufficient. Mighty Armour has a high chemical resistance so damaging the coating from cleaning products is very rare. But you will find with the repellency properties Mighty Armour has, a mild car wash detergent is all thats needed. Mighty Armour is resist to 100 washings before the repellency effectiveness starts to lose it beading properties.

  • What happens after 2 years does the coating peel or flake off?

    Mighty Armour does not peel or flake, you will notice the beading and repellency properties will start to lose its effectiveness, so this is the time to reapply Mighty Armour after a surface clean.

  • Do I need to polish after 2 years before reapplying Mighty Armour?

    After 2 years and you have noticed the beading properties within the coating has lost its effectiveness you won’t have to polish your paint again because the polished finish has been protected over this period from Mighty Amour, which protects not only the paint but the polished finish also. A simple clean and a re-application will be sufficient. Please note if a long period between coats has happened once the first coat has disappeared then you may find you will need to polish the vehicle, because obviously Mighty Armour is no longer on the surface to prevent the original polish from wearing off.

  • Does Mighty Armour have a gloss?

    Mighty Armour has a nice satan gloss. If you desire a higher glosser finish a polish to the paint beforehand is required.

  • Do I need to clean the polish before apply Mighty Armour?

    Once the paint has been polished then a wipe down using our Multiclean is needed, which is specially engineered to remove any foreign matter or streaks that maybe present on the surface. Multiclean is streak free and completes the final cleaning preparation before applying Mighty Armour. You simply spray Multiclean directly to the surface then wipe down with a microfibre cloth.

  • How many coats can I put on my vehicle at one time?

    One coat is sufficient but two coats can be applied to give extra durability. NO more than two coats at any given time should be on the surface. If more than two coats have been applied the coating starts getting to thick and can be prone to cracking. If you desire two coats you can apply the second coat after 1hr of the first coat (1hr between coats), no need to wait 48hrs for the second coat to be applied. Please note applying two coats does not give the paint double the durability it will give the paint up to 3 years protective durability.
