CARPRO Essence Extreme Gloss Primer - 500 ml.

Item Description:

CARPRO Essence is a revolutionary semi-permanent SiO2-based primer, finishing polish, gloss enhancer, and coating in one. What was once thought to be impossible, the combination of a priming product, polish, and gloss enhancing coating's now a reality thanks to this cutting edge formula. CARPRO Essence is designed to simplify your detailing routine, without sacrificing on the quality of results achieved.

You want your car to look its best, but sometimes finding time to detail it to perfection, and then keep it looking that way can seem impossible. CARPRO Essence streamlines your detailing process by combining several steps into one while still providing the amazing results you've come to expect from CarPro, and it lasts up to a year! Top it off with a coating of Reload or CQuartz, and the hydrophobic properties and dirt resistance will be increased, too.

CARPRO Essence utilizes the same advanced abrasives found in CARPRO Reflect, but in smaller quantities. This allows it to provide just the right amount of cut while still finishing smooth. All the while, CARPRO Essence deposits a durable layer of SiO2 Quartz protection and gloss that will keep your car looking great for up to a year! Not only will CARPRO Essence save you time, it's also a great value - just five ounces can coat 2-5 cars. If you're worried about ease of use, don't be! CARPRO Essence is easy to apply - just like an ordinary polish - and wipes off easily too. Apply it with a microfiber or foam pad using your favorite DA polisher and enjoy the incredible gloss and protection!

  1. Shake well before using.
  2. Prep the surface by stripping any existing waxes or sealants; compound if neccessary
  3. Use a microfiber or foam pad appropriate for your vehicle's paint. Softer paints will see better results with a microfiber pad
  4. Spread CARPRO Essence evenly over the panel on a low speed
  5. Increase polisher speed to a medium setting and continue polishing.
  6. Wipe away residue with a clean, soft microfiber towel
  7. Immediately clean or soak pads and towels after use with CARPRO Essence
500ml (16 oz.)

Used this before applying paint sealant and paint coating.Was very pleased with the results.Used Menzerna polish and used Essence for finishing polish .Its nice to be able to skip cleaning the residue off before applying sealant.
  • Was really pleased with the glow it leaves.Made for an outstanding finish for the sealant and the paint coating I applied.Two different cars but great results on both.Im looking forward to using Essence followed up with Reload on neighbors new Rav4 to see how well the combo holds up over the winter.

Can be used as an all-in-one product. best feature is how it enhances gloss like crazy. this can be used as a polish all in one or primer for reload/cquartz. I applied reload on top and did not have any streaking issues because the essence act like a primer for it.
  • Very easy to wipe
  • A little goes a long way
  • Minor dusting

If you are applying a coating this is the product to use as your final polish. Forget about all the wipe downs and preps that make our lives difficult. Apply with a microfiber pad and then apply your coating. Done. Great timesaver for production detailing.
  • Great shine
  • Saves time
  • A little goes a long way
  • None

  • No dust or nasty particles left over
  • Leaves a hard nano silica shell
  • Affordable
  • Leaves amazing shine
  • Can be topped with Reload
