Nanolex Si3D Matte is a specialist coating for matte paints and surfaces. It is designed to form an extremely long lasting chemical bond with the matte surface, offering protection without any enhanced gloss or shine. This sealant can be used on all matte paints, vinyls and surfaces keeping them cleaner for longer and making cleaning easier. It offers strong durable protection over delicate matte surfaces, leaving behind a natural flat sheen.
Nanolex Si3D Matte was developed, tested and produced in Germany.
How to use Nanolex Si3D Matte
Nanolex Si3D Matte can be applied directly to all clear-coated (lacquered) surfaces. The lacquer surface must be dry and free of any contamination or dust. We strongly recommend using Nanolex EX directly before the application to ensure that all oils/fillers and other dirt are removed completely from the surface. Use Nanolex microfiber towels and turn or exchange cloth frequently during cleaning/polishing.
If the car was machine polished before the application it is absolutely necessary to remove any (mostly invisible) fillers and oils – if those are not removed a white or grey hazing will appear on the paint once Si3D Matte was applied. The paint sealant layer is too thin to be visible and can easily buff off – only fillers and oils will become visible. We recommend washing the car with Nanolex PreWash after the paint was machine polished to safely remove most of the contamination.
Spread 5-10 drops/m2 of Nanolex Si3D Matte on a microfiber applicator pad and apply it sparingly by rubbing in with light pressure in criss-cross motions. Remove the coating residue with a soft microfiber cloth after a maximum of 3 minutes. There is no pressure necessary to remove it completely.
Let Nanolex Si3D Matte cure on the surface for at least 12 hours (at ambient temperature, assuming 20°C) before the first water contact. Do not wash the car within the first 72 hours.
