CanCoat is a great product. Leaves a great gloss and some of the most aggressive water behavior I have ever seen. I prefer to use a microfiber applicator instead of a microfiber towel. Goes on more evenly this way. This would be great for someone who is looking to venture into coatings as it's more of a coating lite.

Works very well with Gyeon Q2 Primer Polish. The only con is the price but that is easily offset by a sale.

What to say regarding can coat except "Where ya been all my life?" What an incredibly easy and effective product to use. The look and feel of the surface after application is very, very nice and the application takes about a whole 10 minutes, no runs, no streaks, no errors.

Water behavior, appearance and self-cleaning are on par with a 'full fledged' coating product and in the right situation, a product like this might even be a preferred solution for a vehicle/owner who is somewhat less OCD-ish or unwilling to invest the time and cost in a full correction/coating job for their vehicle. Maintained via wash with Gyeon Bathe on a somewhat regular basis, or post-wash with Gyeon WetCoat and I'll bet the longevity exceeds the claimed 6 months. Add Gyeon Cure on occasion and it'll likely stretch longer according to some accounts I've read.

I applied panel by panel by spritzing a Gyeon PolishWipe towel with 2-4 shots of CanCoat, going over panel in a somewhat regular motion of up/down then side-to-side to ensure complete coverage then buffing the entire area with an Esoteric Ultra Premium Microfiber towel. For me, it was easier than using a quick detailer as it wiped clean quite easily, leaving no streaks but rather a clean, shiny, slick surface with that desirable 'coating look' to it. Waited 24 hours and then tossed a 32oz cup of water at the hood which beaded nicely before gravity took over and they rolled off the panel. Leftover beads that gravity had ignored wiped cleanly off, leaving a great finish. Looking forward to some rain so I can pull it outside and watch it work.

I had CanCoat sitting unused on my shelf for the last 6 months, never really sure when/what to use it for. In this case I had a bright red Ford Ranger than I had prepped and applied Gyeon Mohs to back in February of 2017. Being a fleet vehicle it had been sitting outside 24/7 since then, had never been washed or received any attention outside of an occasional shower by Mother Nature. Although the truck was still staying cleaner than many other vehicles in our fleet that I had coated (with a variety of things) it's had lost that 'coating feel' to it that Mohs & Cure brings to a surface. I probably could have brought it back with merely Cure but I wanted to finally give CanCoat a try.

With the mentality of 'nothing ventured, nothing gained' I foamed the truck with Gyeon Foam at 1:5 dilution, rinsed it, gave it and application of Sonax Fallout Cleaner, rinsed, washed with Gyeon Bathe, dried, wiped down with Gyeon Prep and then snatched up the CanCoat. Having never used it before the initial panels I did with sort of a 'coating mentality' during application, slow and deliberate. By the end of the truck I realized the flexibility of application with the CanCoat allowed for a less concentrated approach to application, hence one of its benefits methinks. A few spritzes on application towel, back and forth, up and down, buff with second towel to ensure full removal of any excess; I really don't think it could get any easier.

Pondering what situations CanCoat would be ideal for (in addition to topping a Mohs or Prime application which I have heard adds some nice gloss and durability), I go back to when I was a bit less OCD-ish and less knowledgeable about our cars appearance and protection. Back in 2004 when we bought our new, black Corvette a certain 'Z sealant' was all the rage among Corvette owners. It provided a nice look with somewhat decent longevity but in the end, offered little protection from water spotting and other environmental contamination; despite numerous applications over the years, usually in Spring after claying and then once or twice the rest of the season, we were left with etched water spots in the paint. Additionally, the self-cleaning properties of the sealant were pretty much nonexistent. Had I used CanCoat instead (if it would have been available), perhaps 2 or 3 times a year, I'm pretty confident the protection and self-cleaning properties of it would have eliminated the etching of the paint. And I likely would have not needed to wash it as frequently, which would have reduced the buildup of wash-induced marring as well as being far easier and quicker to apply.

I could also see this as being an economical and effective product to use for those who do not wish to spend the time and money prepping and applying more 'complete' coating solution. Prep and perhaps a light polish once a year, a CanCoat application or two over that year and you're getting the protection, self-cleaning and appearance properties of a coating without the more significant investment of time and money a more 'semi-permanent' coating would involve, especially for the casual DIY'er.

In fact, given the low cost of CanCoat, I can see it being a viable replacement for a sealant if you like or want the look, feel, protection and self-cleaning properties of a coating. It's actually much easier to apply than most sealants (for me anyway) as well.

I'm really quite enamored with the ease of use and effectiveness of this product; it's just so very handy to have around that I'll likely keep a bottle on the shelf for quick use in the situations that warrant it. Will be interesting to see how it does going forward and it%u2019s an easy way to 'wow' people with minimal effort and cost.

Application with a microfiber applicator pad in a light coat in small sections. 6 sections for the roof and 6 for the hood and multiple towels resulted in streaking. Gyeon said the MOHS coating, that was applied 24 hours earlier may have rejected the CanCoat. I think they should let you know that rejection is possible. I now face polishing to remove the streaks and almost $200.00 worth of useless Gyeon products on my shelves. My advice would be to avoid this brand of products completely.

I've used this several times, very easy, I'm puzzled by the above review. This has worked great as a standalone on my moms Durango that sits outside 80% of the time, and not frequently washed. It's been applied twice in 14 months, and that includes NE Ohio winter. Once and a while it gets some Gyeon Iron and Tar, and only been topped with Kamikaze Overcoat once! I also used it as a topper over Gyeon Mohs, took about 25 minutes to do a Chevy Equinox. I'll be doing my nephews car with Mohs and Cancoat or Booster, and this is becoming my go to coating unless I do my favorite combo of Kamikaze Miyabi and ISM.

I love it can be used on trim, metal, etc. Instead of using a microfiber to apply/remove, I use a microfiber applicator, do a small section and immediately wipe, no worries. Speaking with an authorized installer/seller, they said once opened, it has a few months of shelf life depending how it's stored. You'll know, if you apply it, and it doesn't seem to last, it had gone past it's shelf life. It should easily last, and provides crazy water beading. it's also good for a premium detail, being better than about all waxes and sealants, but isn't the high price of a full coating.

Did not go on smoothly and did not come off smoothly. In order to take it off, I had to use an electric buffer with compound to get it off. It does apply better with a pad applicator and wipe off similar to the application of the Gtechniq evo, only it must be removed more quickly. I would not recommend this item. The amount of work it caused me was ridiculous.
