There are a variety of paint sealants on the market today to choose from, and it can become a difficult task of choosing which is right for you. Some are known for their durability, some for their ease of application, and some for their stunning good looks. Many times it’s simply a matter of which feature/benefit is most important to the end user.
First let’s take a closer look at the Blackfire Wet Diamond, All Finish Paint Protection. The German-developed crystal polymer formula has Polycharger in it, which means no mixing or blending as you will find with other products on the market. Polycharger boosts slickness and shine while extending the protection and durability by cross-linking polymers to create an incredibly strong barrier. You can expect durable protection for about 6 months.
The Polycharged, oil-in-water emulsion is VOC compliant in all 50 states, and is safe for all finishes with or without a clear coat.
The durable and brilliant shine will protect your vehicle’s finish from dirt, moisture, UV rays, and airborne contaminants for many months, even through regular washing.
I’ve gotten the opportunity to use Blackfire Wet Diamond on a variety of colors so far, and I must admit that it provides one of the most brilliant and wet finishes I’ve seen. Silver is one of the most difficult colors to get a true “wow” factor going, but if you look at the photo below of the BMW M3 I detailed in Silver Grey Metallic, you’ll see that I easily achieved that level of shine and gloss.
I also found the product to be easy to use, indifferent to temperatures and humidity, and it required very little effort to achieve great overall results. Some products require a steep learning curve to get them to work properly, but that is not the case at all with Wet Diamond. It went on easily, it buffed off with very little effort, and then I pulled it out in the sunshine for inspection to find a beautiful finish without streaks or haze.
Although applying a wax over a sealant is not necessary, some enthusiasts (me being one of them) like to put on a coat of fine carnauba to kick it up a notch. I have applied Chemical Guys E-Zyme Natura on top of Wet Diamond, and the final look has been nothing short of stunning. If you wish to do this however, you must wait at least 8 hours after application of the Wet Diamond so it can properly cure. So if you like to wax over your sealant, please keep this in mind.
If you’re looking for great looks, relatively ease of use, and proven durability, then you should seriously consider trying Blackfire Wet Diamond, All Finish Paint Protection!
How to use:
First you want to make sure that you start with a freshly prepped surface. Although it will look great after just a thorough wash, it will look even better if the prepping also includes claying and/or polishing to remove any swirls, defects, or oxidation.
Since Wet Diamond is an oil-in-water emulsion, you want to make sure that you shake the bottle well prior to using, and also shake it often as you work your way around the vehicle.
As with most products, it’s best to use on a cool surface out of direct sunlight.
For application with a PC, I will apply two dime-sized drops of Wet Diamond to the clean pad, and then lightly spread it onto the surface on speed 3.5~4. No pressure is required on the machine, and you only need to get an even coverage…no need to work it in like you would a polish. With just two drops of product, you should be able to cover an entire area (door panel for instance) before needing to add more product.
Once you apply it to the entire vehicle, take a few minutes to finish up the wheels, glass, exhaust tips, etc and by the time you’re finished, the Blackfire Wet Diamond will be ready for removal with a fresh microfiber towel.
You will find that the residue is very easy to remove, and the surface now has an unbelievably slick feel to it. This slickness will generally last several months, while the protection of the sealant should last up to about 6 months. More frequent applications are not necessary, however it is perfectly acceptable to apply Wet Diamond more often if you want to have that fresh, slick feel to it.
For application by hand, apply a quarter sized amount of product to your hand applicator, and then work in sections just like you would using a PC. Apply to one section by hand, then buff off residue with a plush microfiber towel, and then move onto the next section. It’s that simple!
If you wish to apply two coats of Blackfire Wet Diamond, or if you want to top it with a high quality wax, then you will need to allow it to cure for at least 8 hours after you have completed the initial application/removal process.
Blackfire Wet Diamond is truly a great paint sealant that produces a brilliant shine, depth, a high gloss, and a vibrant finish. For those willing to spend just a little extra time, or don’t mind waiting for the post-application cure time before topping it with their wax of choice, I can highly recommend this product. You will be very happy with the results!
