When we surveyed our pro detailing customers on what products would be most beneficial for them, a common theme kept coming up. Most of the guys wanted a protective coating that was easy to use, lasted long, had extremely high gloss, amazing slickness, high levels of hydrophobic and self-cleaning ability, and was efficient (meaning very little was needed).
This is the coating detailers will want to have before the competition gets their hands on it. It's efficient, effective, clients will love the results, and it gets detailers a great ROI on coating services.
The Last Coat proudly brings you, by popular demand, Deep Ice.
With unreal hydrophobic properties, Deep Ice was formulated for our pro-detailer customers who wanted to offer longer-term coating services to their customers while generating a great ROI for every bottle they purchase. One bottle of Deep Ice will put hundreds if not thousands of dollars into the pocket of the pro and mobile detailer.
Each purchase comes with the following:
• 8 oz. bottle of Deep Ice, depending on the desired size. An average-sized vehicle takes under 1 oz. for one layer of Deep Ice.
• A high-quality sponge applicator for applying Deep Ice.
• One of our Premium 400 GSM Microfiber towels for buffing off.
Common Questions About Deep Ice:
1) How is Deep Ice different from The Last Coat (TLC2)?
This is probably our most common question. The Last Coat (TLC2) will likely be most people's go-to coating for all surfaces. Deep Ice is for exterior surfaces only. So this means external painted surfaces, glass, vinyl, and matte surfaces.
Both products are extremely durable, but Deep Ice tends to have more longevity as well as more hydrophobics and a tighter beading pattern. Built off similar mesh technology as TLC2, Deep Ice was formulated specifically for external surfaces only and for more longevity, primarily for detailers looking to offer longer-term coating services to their clients.
The longevity and focus on external surfaces are the main differences.
The cure time on Deep Ice is longer, with full curing happening after 7 days, whereas TLC2 full cure is after 24 hours. Keep in mind the 7 day cure time is curing before washing, exposure to harsh chemicals, and before applying any toppers such as TLC2 or AMP if desired. After 24 hours, Deep Ice can be exposed to normal driving conditions typically. With Deep Ice, you tend to use even less than TLC2 (hard to believe, yes). An average-sized vehicle exterior can be done often with under 1 oz. per layer.
We also state that for best results with Deep Ice, you will want to apply on a paint corrected surface free of swirls or scratches.
Lastly, Deep Icee is best applied with the included applicator and then buffed off with the included microfiber towel. With Deep Ice it is recommended to discard the towel and applicator after application.
2) Can Deep Ice be used together with The Last Coat (TLC2) and/or AMP?
Yes, absolutely! Since Deep Ice requires a paint corrected, swirl-free surface, after the polishing process (if required) you would apply Deep Ice to be your durable base layer. You would then allow Deep Ice to cure for 7 days before applying TLC2 or AMP. At that time, you can then apply TLC2 and AMP for regular maintenance to help preserve and rebuild on the Deep Ice layer.
3) What surfaces can Deep Ice be used on?
Deep Ice can be used on most exterior surfaces including painted surfaces, matte and vinyl surfaces, denim surfaces, glass, fiberglass, gel-coat, as well as chrome. The surface should be cool to the touch when applying.
4) Can Deep Ice be applied in direct sunlight, and in what temperature ranges?
Ideally, you are not working in direct sunlight when applying Deep Ice. But, if you must, it is important to work in small 2' x 2' areas when applying. It is best to apply in temperatures above 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and below 90 degrees if possible. All surfaces should ideally be cool to the touch when applying, especially glass and chrome.
5) Can Deep Ice be used to remove water spots from a surface?
No, the surface should be free of scratches, swirls, and water spots before applying Deep Ice.
6) Can Deep Ice be applied to a vehicle that has a ceramic coating on it?
With the exception of high end, professionally installed ceramic coatings, Deep Ice should be the base layer when using it. Typically, TLC2 will be best as a topper for a high-end ceramic coated vehicle.
7) Can Deep Ice be used on interior and home surfaces?
No, we do not recommend applying Deep Ice on vehicle interior or home surfaces.
Full Prep and Application Instructions for Deep Ice:
For best results, and to get the most durability and longevity, you would want a scratch and swirl-free surface (a paint correction) ideally. And also a surface that is entirely clean and stripped free of waxes, polishes, solvents, and sealants (including TLC). Here's what we recommend:
Step One: Wash your vehicle.
Step Two: Decontaminate the paint surface with a clay mitt, clay bar or chemical removal.
Step Three: (if paint requires it, if not move on to step four). Compound/polish (paint correction)the paint surface to remove swirls, defects and bring the surface to a high gloss.
***In terms of what compound and polish to use, we like stuff that is professional-grade but still easy to use. The two that we use personally in-house that can be purchased easily are "The Last Cut" by TLD Detail NV (no affiliation, just similar names). It's a great compounding product that is easier to use than some other professional-grade products. Another that we use is Sonax Perfect FInish, it works well for gloss and minimal clear coat removal, just won't remove a lot of deep swirls as The Last Cut will. We do not recommend many of the lower end polishes that will leave behind residue and such that can be hard to remove via IPA, and thus affecting bonding to the surface and longevity.***
Step Four: Wipe down the vehicle with 70% isopropyl alcohol (IPA) on a microfiber and let the IPA air dry or use a surface prep cleaner. This will remove all waxes, polishing oils if used, and residue to ensure a clean surface.
Step Five: Using a microfiber applicator, spray 2-5 sprays (depending on panel) of Deep Ice directly onto the applicator and then wipe on to paint surfaces in a hashtag type pattern. Then take a CLEAN microfiber towel to buff off Deep Ice to an extremely high gloss, slick finish. For larger vehicles use a new buffing microfiber towel halfway through to ensure full removal. Full removal is very important. Discard towels/applicator after use.
Step Six: If additional layers are desired, wait 1 hour before applying the additional layer. Due to the minimal amounts used when applied, it is a great idea to do 2-3 layers of Deep Ice.
IMPORTANT: Wait 24 hours before water contact and a full 7 days before washing with high-pressure water or soaps, or exposing to harsh chemicals. The full cure time is 7 days.
After 7 days TLC2 and/or AMP can be used to wipe down the vehicle after washing or to remove bird droppings, fingerprints, or to remove light dust. TLC2 will also add layers of protection on top of Deep Ice and help preserve and rebuild it as well.

Black Ice for the deepest shine on black paint!
We coated my truck with 2 coats of Black Ice and I’ve never had the paint shine this deep. My truck sits outside in the Texas sun, rain, blowing dirt, and hail 90% of the time. The only way to get in my garage is to let the air out of the tires enough to squeeze in. A storm blew a 6’ tumbleweed up in a corner where I park and it decided unleash tumbleweed fury up and down the passenger side of my truck. I never thought a tumbleweed could be so violent. The scratches were all over the passenger side and even spent some time leaving it’s mark on my American Force wheels. I squeezed in the garage and washed, clay pad, compounded, polished, stripped with alcohol, and applied two coats of Black Ice to everything. I coated the paint, wheels, windows, plastic trim and all. I can honestly say that this truck has never shined like this. I kept it in the garage for 7 days because we had more storms forecasted for several days. The thumbs up pic is the reflection off the passenger door after it had cured for 2 days, I t’s like a mirror. After 7 days, I pulled it out in the sun and it looked even deeper, almost felt like the paint was soft because it was so smooth. It’s been a little over 2 weeks since it was coated and I am very impressed how easy it is to rinse the dust and blow it dry. The dirt doesn’t stick like it did before the Black Ice, rinses right off and blows dry with a leaf blower. This could be the secret to keeping the shine on polished wheels. Very impressed!!!
Black Ice ...Outstanding!
I have been a long time user of TLC 2 and AMP. I recently purchased a new LEXUS IS 350 F Sport and decided to use the Black Ice on it that I had purchased a while back. I looked at numerous reviews and video's on the proper way to apply the product. The pretreatment prep was the toughest part and most time consuming. The application process was quite simple and results were outstanding. I applied two coats as recommended. I think the TLC 2 is an amazing product, but the end result of the Black Ice was exceptional. I'll need to wait the week before applying the TLC 2 to add more protection on top of the Black Ice. Super product and results!
Deep Ice and top with TLC2 after 7 days.
I have used The Last Coat products for many years and have always been very happy with the results.
Black Ice Super Shine
Easy to apply when you follow the instructions. Very satisfied with the depth of shine on my BMW R1250RS, cars are next. Highly recommended.
I love the last coat. Honestly, when my bottle gets low I panic. Keeps my car protected and looking brand new. It’s the perfect gift for anyone who enjoys a showroom shine kind of car
I put Cera Trim on my truck tires to give them the "wet-look" and my truck is the envy of the neighborhood now
so easy to use love every product you make simply the best!!!!as Tina T would say
Black Ice (now Deep Ice) Review
This stuff is amazing. I just bought a new car and have been watching videos on TLC for years lol. Waited for this moment and MAN can I just say this stuff is something special. I was just hoping for a little bit of paint protection and the other topical benefits, but the fact that it made such a tremendous difference on a BRAND NEW CAR FROM FACTORY is insane. And this is only with the Black Ice (now Deep Ice) treatment (car washed with The Last Soap). Can’t wait till I add TLC & AMP to this beauty. Thank you guys so much!
This is the best product on the market
Natural Special Effects
Deep Ice is so good, when I used it on my vehicle and took a picture afterwards in the sun. I've looked at the snapshot, and sparkles of light reflected on the paint. What amazing feeling to see the natural special effects, I was in awe!
