Sprayable 1 year Outdoor Ceramic Coating
Industry leading 1 year ceramic coating with built in sacrificial layer technology that requires no indoor storage and completely DIY friendly
What is it? Synergy Lite is a true 1 year ceramic coating that can be applied outside and is extremely forgiving in nature, which makes it the perfect choice for DIY application or for mobile valeters & detailers. Its 100ml glass bottle contains enough product to cover 5 vehicles making it one of the best value ceramic coatings available in Europe.
What's it made from? Synergy Lite is made from the same polysilazane resin as our professional coatings, just with lower ceramic content. This is combined with a trio of advanced solvents that allow the coating to be spread easily on your vehicle without the use of any oils. Finally, a polymer is added that bleeds through the ceramic and forms a top layer over the coating. This protects the vulnerable ceramic as it cures, and allows you to apply the coating to vehicles outdoors without causing failure. Lite is a true ceramic coating and when applied correctly and not washed for 7 days after application will reach 9H mohs hardness just like the longer term coatings.
What are the features? Synergy Lite makes ceramic coating accessible to anyone, whether it's your first time applying a coating, or if you are an experienced installer. The problems associated with coating a car outside have been addressed with Lite and its sacrificial layer system. Think of this as a safety net that allows you to use a vehicle within 30 mins of application and even in the rain! In addition, we recognise that many DIY installers do not want to or cannot machine polish their vehicle, so we have designed lite to work even in these situations. The product has the ability to fill in surface defects such as wash marring and swirls quite dramatically and will leave your vehicle looking exceptional even without polishing. Couple these benefits to the products incredible value for money and you can see why Synergy Lite has become so popular throughout the Uk and Europe.
How does it fit into the wash process? Synergy Lite is a last stage protection product and should only be applied after thoroughly washing, decontaminating, polishing (if required) and using Synergy Prep to prepare the panel. Ceramic coatings only work if they bond correctly to the paint so ensuring you prepare the vehicle correctly is very important.
Basic Application: This application method is great if you are not machine polishing the vehicle and simply want the benefits of the ceramic coating with minimal effort.
Thoroughly wash the vehicle, ensure any tar and contamination has been removed from the bodywork. The use of Liquid Fire is also advised to assist with chemical decontamination and if required you can also use a clay bar to assist in this process.
Dry the vehicle after the wash process, this is essential! Always open doors and dry any areas like under wing mirrors where residual water can be lurking. A handy tool for this is the BLO Air-S car drier, but a dual twist towel like the mini will also do fine.
Next, grab some Synergy prep to ensure any residual surfactants or light contamination from the chemical decon process is completely removed. This is essential to provide a completely clean surface for the coating to bond to. work on only 1 panel at a time or a half panel if you are working on a bonnet or roof. Spray prep and gently wipe in straight lines with a new microfibre towel, excess prep will just evaporate away. A good towel for this is our general weave 380gsm.
Now to apply Synergy Lite, grab an applicator such as the microfibre ceramic application block. Spray the coating 6-8 times on the block to get the new pad surface primed then begin to apply the coating in straight lines 1 panel at a time. NEVER SPRAY DIRECTLY ON THE CAR. Ensure you crosshatch the coating on application by working it up and down then side to side as this will give a better, more even bond to the surface. Now simply allow 30 secs-5 mins ideally but can be left up to 15 mins before removing the coating residue with a short pile towel like the 280gsm edgeless, you may coat more than 1 panel at a time before removing.
Once you have coated the entire car we recommend you give it a final wipe down with a plush edgeless towel like the 500gsm ultra plush. Once you have done this you are good to go! Just remember not to wash the vehicle for 7 days after application (very important).

Advanced application is much the same as the basic, with the addition of machine correction on the vehicle to ensure optimum results in vehicle appearance and protection. Application and curing times remain the same on corrected paintwork.
Layering can be done as many as 20 times with Synergy Lite, this may be desirable if you are trying to hide a deep imperfection that cannot be corrected by machine. To layer simply apply the first application then remove immediately, the second layer and so on should be left for 1-3 mins before removal. repeat this process until the defect has been completely filled.
