    depende sa paint/top coat na ginamit. according to the shop that worked on my car, 3 weeks lang pwede na kasi Dupont ginamit. kung ibang paint, advise ng shop 3 months.

    Our trusted pintor recommends 1 month ang pagpapatuyo
    ng pintura bago i-final buffing ang anzhal paint.

    he even said na mas okei kung ibilad mo kung gusto mo
    mas mabilis ang pagpapatuyo.

    kasi daw kahit tuyo na yung ibabaw,
    yung mga layer sa ilalim nyan hindi pa gnun
    katuyo kaparehas ng ibabaw.

    hindi pa ako nakakakita ng incident ng nasirang pintura dahil sa
    pagpahid ng kung ano sa body ng hindi pa fully tuyo ang paint,

    pero i think ang possible scenario is sa kakapahid mo ng wax
    or sa pag buff off nito, pwedeng sa diin ng kamay mo,
    "mapunit" yung paint. lalo pa kaya kung DA polisher ang gamit.

    Copy sir. Balak ko kasing lagyan ng touchless sealant pero antay na muna mg one month. Ibabalik ko pa din for final buffing. May portion akong nakitang medyo hazy pa. DuPont daw pala ginamit.

    iba lang way of application of CarPro Hydro2 but it is still a sealant and it will have bad effect on paint that is not yet cured. if you want to protect your new paint, you can put Pure Glaze product.

    A common procedure for fresh paint is to hand or machine glaze the paint after any wetsanding, cutting and buffing has been performed.

    Fresh Paint = Less than 30 days since it was sprayed

    In most cases, fresh paint is sanded, buffed and glazed within a few days after being sprayed, before the owner picks up the car. For the glazing process you need to use a product that is "Body Shop Safe", that means there are no ingredients that will contaminate a fresh paint environment and cause surface adhesion problems for the new paint.

    One type of surface adhesion problem is called "Fish Eyes" and that's where some type of contaminant remains on the prepped surface at the time the paint is sprayed and the surface tension created by the contaminant prevents paint from sticking to that area, so the paint pile up around the contaminated area and creates a circle without paint and because of the appearance after the paint dries, this type of defect has been given the name... "Fish Eye".


    Two of the most well known Body Shop Safe glazes in the refinishing industry are

    Meguiar's M07 Show Car Glaze
    3M Imperial Hand Glaze
