Product Description

22ple has been listening to feedback from professional detailers and detailing enthusiasts alike to help them develop HPC. HPC stand for High Performance Coating because it truly takes coatings to the next level. This coating utilizes silica powder which is significantly more expensive than liquid silica and delivers superior performance. On top of utilizing silica powder, HPC features a unique formulation of high grade fluorine. What does all this mean? The powdered silica improves the already outstanding 22ple gloss and the high grade fluorine gives amazing water beading results. This takes coatings to a new level and will really make your paint stand out against the rest. Gloss, gloss, gloss and more gloss! Your car will look like it is entirely coated in glass! Prior to coating be sure to thoroughly clean an polish the paint because HPC will last 3 ~ 4 years. Approximately 20-25 ml is recommended for a mid/large size car. If you are looking to take your paint to the next level with gloss and protection, the 22ple HPC High Performance Coating is your coating!

Please Note: 22ple Glass Coat Applicator sold separately.

Sizing Recommendations:
  • 30ml - With some experience you can get two applications
  • 50ml - Best value and if you are looking to perform multiple applications or want to apply on multiple vehicles

Application Instructions:
  1. Prior to coating, always prepare paint by polishing to perfection. Remove any polish residue with a thorough wash followed by an IPA wipe down to remove any remaining oily residue.
  2. Stir the content well prior to use
  3. Apply a few drops of HPC onto a 22ple Glass Coat Applicator and proceed to apply it onto the paint work in a straight line motion, taking care that the application covers all areas without leaving gaps.
  4. Allow approximately 3 minutes of dwell time (at 25 degrees C / 77 degrees F) or slightly longer in colder (below 20 degrees C / 68 degrees F) ambient temperature. Wait for the freshly coated surface to hazed up before removing the glass coat softly with the microfiber towel.
  5. It is highly recommended to cure the surface under infra-red curing lamp.
  6. If you choose to cure the glass coat under infra-red curing lamp, we recommend the following settings: Set temperature at 65 degrees C / 150 degrees F, cure for between 6 to 8 minutes from a distance of around 2 feet.
  7. 7. Under ambient curing, allowed approx. 2 hours to settle, then finished off with spray of VS1 Final Coat to complete the application workflow.
  8. 8. For infra-red curing, you may apply VS1 Final Coat once the surface has cooled down to ambient temperature. Do not apply VS1 Final Coat while the surface is still warm.

  • Durability: 3 ~ 4 years
  • Recommended: 2 ~ 3 layers, 12 hours apart

22ple HPC...well, this was interesting. Got a chance to try this coating yesterday.

Cliff Notes: Kinda strange application characteristics but overall is blindingly easy, product is forgiving with respect to removal, very high gloss and very slick.


The victim was yet another fleet vehicle, a 2016 Ford Transit-250 Extended Cargo Van. Pretty good shape so just went over it with Sonax Perfect Finish, Flex 3401 w/ LC Force Hybrid white pad, then prepped by going over twice with Gyeon Prep.

Application was odd, for me in this case anyway. I began applying with Gyeon foam block/microsuede applicator cloth. I did have the recommended 22ple applicator block (below; had to purchase separately for $5 as no applicator is included with product) but the thing is so small I figured I`d be there forever.


Anyway, the HPC didn't apply very smoothly using the Gyeon block/cloth; initial contact with the surface and a loaded applicator/cloth was very grabby and uneven, even after the block/cloth got a bit saturated on successive panels. Each section the first swipes seemed to flash nearly immediately but you were able to eventually smooth/distribute the product evenly on each panel; it just din`t have that `gliding` feel as most coatings do. Possibly due to the fluorine in the product? Have heard the same anecdotal experience of quick flashing with Gyeon Booster which is fluorine based? I dunno, I ain't no chemist, all I know is it did not have a smooth, gliding application using the block/microsuede cloth deal.

So I decided to give the 22ple applicator block a try. It certainly applied smoother but the very thin layer gray of whatever it is that touches the paint would 'catch' very easily if not perfectly flat on surface; almost fumbled/dropped this a few times. At this point I had also increased my `arm speed` of application to help with the quick flashing of the initial swipe. Still not confident of easy, even coverage I grabbed one of those yellow/gray LC applicator blocks and gave it a try.


OK...now we`re getting somewhere...easy to hold, doesn't try to fold under as easily as the 22ple block...horrible screeching noise at times as it moves over the paint but if applying quickly enough, good, even application...`quickly` being the operative word when I was applying the HPC. Best method came to be dropping about 6 to 8 drops on the applicator and then going over a panel or section as quickly as I could, back and forth, up and down. It was actually near frantic but the product was forgiving enough that once spread on the panel could be gone over a few times to even out the coverage. For whatever reason, a slower `first wipe` with a freshly loaded applicator wasn't smooth or even but if ya hit the panel running and continued with quick movements, it all came out very evenly. And because of whatever chemistry is involved in this product, removal intervals were pretty much irrelevant (within reason of course...guessing coming back an hour later might lead to issues).

Anyway, once I got going I was able to apply to the entire top half of one side of the van, wander around a bit congratulating myself on how skillful I was, and then remove the flashed product. Wipe off was ridiculously easy using a Gyeon Polish Wipe towel, not much pressure needed, no pushing any coating residue to adjacent panel...stuff removed pretty much like a sealant or liquid wax. Followed up with a light buff using another towel and was left with a very slick, very glossy surface. Will do second coat about 20hrs after initial, perhaps it will glide more during application. Will then follow up with 22ple VS1 Final Coat and call it a day. And a month. And quite possibly a year when it comes to working on vans.

At around a list price of around $110 for 30ml, certainly not the cheapest game in town so we`ll see if effectiveness and longevity justify the higher initial price point. Wasn't sure if I was gonna have enough (started with two 30ml bottles) to do entire van twice so I used another coating on the seemingly endless roof of the van. Coating all panels once except for the roof used about 20-25ml of HPC. A 50ml bottle *might* have made it thru 2 coats on all panels but roof; it would have been close.

Painted surfaces look and feel great after application, can't wait to see how it does in daily use.


2nd Coat:


22ple HPC 2nd coat was uneventful using Gyeon block and microsuade cloth. Went on pretty much like other coatings.

This stuff is just so easy to use, despite the somewhat unconventional 'feel' during application of first coat. Pretty much applied to half of one side of van at a time. At about 64 degrees, just a light buff off and no worries about high spots.

Probably the best way to describe final appearance (after VS1 Final Coat) ...gloss. It is of the 'molten glass' variety. Much more so than the Cquartz on its sister vehicle, which was pretty much in the same condition immediately before coating.

It was a very entertaining product to use and final appearance is (to my tastes) quite stunning on the red, non metallic paint. Would be great if this one has legs and it's self-cleaning abilities measure up. Gonna give it a month on the van and see how it performs but based on initial looks and feel alone, this might just replace what I thought I was gonna use on my personal vehicles this Spring.

I applied this product to a new Lexus NX back in August. I bought 50cc and was able to coat the car twice with about 5 to 10cc left over (I did not do the wheels). It's been nearly 6 months and while the Illinois winter has not been severe the water beading of this product remains amazing. the application process is very easy with the hazing an easy indicator of when to wipe it off. If this lasts 3 years it is well worth the price as opposed to applying a traditional sealant twice per year just in the time saving alone. Highly recommended!

This is third 22ple coating that I have tried. I am a complete novice at detailing. I have been very impressed with the 22ple products and the ease of application. Last year I used the VX pro coating on a white car that I keep parked outside and that project went great and the coating is holding up. This time I chose the HPC coating for an Imperial Blue BMW X5 (dark navy blue).

This stuff is just ridiculously easy to apply using the 22ple applicator. You simply paint the stuff on and buff it off. It is much easier to apply than most wax jobs. I applied it when the ambient temps were 65 degrees and it is crazy forgiving. There is almost no way to mess it up. It goes on and the finish is perfect. No streaks or marks and it looks like glass.

It is so easy that I am likely to apply it to an Azurite BMW 5 series that I own.

My only complaint is the bottle is a bit challenging to get it to drip onto the applicator. It is much easier to get a 10cc syringe and draw the product up through a long blunt needle and dispense it this way than with the bottle that they supplied.

This is a great product and I would buy it again. I cannot comment on the longevity of the HPC coating, but the VX pro I used last year seems to have held up quite nicely outside. The X5 is garage parked and so I hope it will last even longer.
