Common Questions About The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating:
1) How is The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating 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. The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating is for exterior surfaces only. So this means external painted surfaces, glass, vinyl, and matte surfaces.
Both products are extremely durable, but The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating tends to have more longevity as well as more hydrophobics and a tighter beading pattern. Built off similar mesh technology as TLC2, The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating 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 The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating 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, The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating can be exposed to normal driving conditions typically. With The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating, 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 The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating, you will want to apply on a paint corrected surface free of swirls or scratches.
Lastly, The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coatinge is best applied with the included applicator and then buffed off with the included microfiber towel. With The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating it is recommended to discard the towel and applicator after application.
2) Can The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating be used together with The Last Coat (TLC2) and/or AMP?
Yes, absolutely! Since The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating requires a paint corrected, swirl-free surface, after the polishing process (if required) you would apply The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating to be your durable base layer. You would then allow The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating 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 The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating layer.
3) What surfaces can The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating be used on?
The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating 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 The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating be applied in direct sunlight, and in what temperature ranges?
Ideally, you are not working in direct sunlight when applying The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating. 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 The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating be used to remove water spots from a surface?
No, the surface should be free of scratches, swirls, and water spots before applying The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating.
6) Can The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating be applied to a vehicle that has a ceramic coating on it?
With the exception of high end, professionally installed ceramic coatings, The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating 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 The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating be used on interior and home surfaces?
No, we do not recommend applying The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating on vehicle interior or home surfaces.
Full Prep and Application Instructions for The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating:
This video below goes through the entire prep process for The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating. You can also read the directions in text below the video:
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 The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating 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 The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating 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 The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating.
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 The Last Coat Black Ice Ceramic Coating and help preserve and rebuild it as well.

This is, by FAR the BEST shone my 6 year old truck has ever had. I deliver RVs so this truck gets a lot of road abuse. For a silver 2014 RAM 3500 dually it looks like new now in 2021. Even my car wash guys are amazed at the results. Great stuff get a 10 from me!
Very easy to apply to my “Iron Horse” tacoma. Even my 11 year old cousin! For sure will recommend to everyone
a week after applying black ice it rained no water marks. now it snowed and it's still perfect! thanks Mark
Nice in other words “SWEET”
Super easy and it’s the most shine I’ve ever seen on my car and truck. It makes detailing my stuff fun again.
You bet. I’ve sworn by your original ceramic sealant. I’ve recently applied the pro formula “Ice” just to see if I could notice any improvement over the tried and true Last Coat. I’m sold! And this is backed up by the compliments received about how good the car looks. I’ve tried some of the “competition”… But this these products are far superior to anything I’ve used before.
Outstanding product and service as well. I love how well it shines and it’s longevity compared to waxes.
Lovin the Black Ice, pics after 3 rain storms and a quick wash with last soap.
Product was great, some of the best stuff I have used.
After > 100 videos watched for coating my car as a Pro, as a genuine DYIer while on this pandemic, have followed the sequences of steps trying above mentioned product from the Last Coat. Results, based on my experienced and brand new car: 1- Two applications on same say gave my 2021 Tahoe the nicest appeareance ever imagined. 2- AMP was at first underestimated because of its liquish consistency but as a matter of fact, it was the most noticeable touch (maybe because of prior 2 layers of TLC). 3 -Did not see any violet color after applying Iron Off, on my wife's CRV 2019, but wheels are Impeccable after applying it and before coating them.
