When I saw that 22ple had released a new set of coating products, I was very interested in trying them out as I was already quite a big fan of their first generation VX Pro and VX1 Signature Products. My previous experiences with the 22ple paint coatings have been great as they provided long lasting gloss and protection while also being one of the easiest coatings to use on the market. Perhaps the only complaint I had about the product was the relatively high retail price compared to some of the competition…. that is, until now. 22ple VX3 Signature Glass Coat is the latest signature coating from 22ple, which has been improved with a new, more advanced UHMW Silica for even better performance, and also now at a very competitive price.
I applied this coating to this gorgeous Acura at the customer’s home, and as expected, it was a real pleasure to use. Using the CarPro Applicator Block and Suede, the coating was very easy to spread evenly across the vehicle as seen in the image below.
I allowed the coating to sit for roughly 5-6 minutes, as directed, before I began removing the excess product. Using light pressure, I wiped the panel first with a large suede microfiber towel to level the majority of the excess product, and then finished with a light pass with a Black & Yellow towel to ensure the panel was completely free of any high spots.
It took just an hour or so to apply one coat to the entire vehicle, and a little less than 15 mL of product were used. Keep in mind, many people who may be applying these types of products for the first time may use more product than we did, but the 30 mL bottle should be enough for one coat on any size vehicle.
The vehicle was left to sit in the garage for over 24 hours, and the end result was nothing short of stunning. The nicely polished paint topped with the glass coating created a very glossy finish with incredible depth. Check out those crystal clear reflections!
First impressions of this new offering from 22ple are great. Another easy to use product with a better price and performance. I will continue to monitor the durability of this product over time, however given my personal testing with previous 22ple coatings, I am expecting this coating to provide years of durable protection and gloss.
