CarPro Reload is a versatile, silica-based spray sealant offering exceptional gloss and durability characteristics…all in an easy to use package.
Reload was originally designed as a ceramic coating topper, but once everyone got their hands on it, it soon was used as a standalone sealant…offering durability up to six months on daily drivers. We have used Reload in our shop since it was first released and have enjoyed the quick and effective nature in sealing automotive paint, but Reload doesn’t stop at just paint. We have grown to use it extensively on wheels, glass, exterior trim and even leather. Reload produces a glass-like super slick surface which has fantastic water beading properties. Throughout the years, we have tried many different spray sealants but always seem to come back to Reload based on just how easy and quick it is to seal an entire car. A few towels, a bottle of Reload and about 15 minutes of your time and your vehicle is sealed, shiny and ready to go. How can you beat that!?
Reload does have many strengths but isn’t without its own unique flaws. It does have the potential to streak if used improperly and have an oily appearance if too much is used. Not to worry, over the years we have picked up a few tips to get rid of these issues. Below we have comprised a list of steps to get the most out of your Reload application.
Wash and clay your vehicle using a citrus based prep shampoo like Chemicals Guys Citrus Wash and a Nanoskin Fine Grade Autoscrub Mitt. Removing all traces of any dirt, grime and bonded contamination will only improve the durability and performance of Reload.
Wipe the paintwork down with a 50/50 mixture of 70% Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) and distilled water. This will remove any previous protection and ensure that Reload can properly bond to the surface it is being applied to.
Set aside two microfiber towels and your bottle of Reload. Short nap microfiber towels, such as the ones pictured below, seem to spread Reload evenly and allow for easier removal. One towel will be used to apply Reload and the other will be your leveling towel.
Spray 1-2 light mists of Reload onto the application short nap microfiber towel and spread over a 2′ x 2′ sized panel. Once spread, flip the towel to a clean side and wipe away the product residue. After you have wiped the product off, grab the second towel and wipe the area again insuring no residue is left on the surface. The key to application is to not over spread as this could lead to the product flashing too quickly and leaving high spots. If, for some reason, you see any oily holograms or streaks, grab a third towel and lightly dampen it. Wipe the surface with the damp towel…followed again with the second dry towel which should eliminate any issues. When we apply Reload, we wipe the panel down in small sections with zero pressure and even straight line motions.
