When searching for the right applicator we needed something small, scratch free, and easily disposed of. The applicator is just the right size - small enough to use on tight plastic and rubber trim areas with Adam's Trim Coating, but large enough to apply an even layer of Adam's Paint or Wheel Coating across the preferred surface as well. When applying the coating, the applicator's soft internal sponge allows the coating to be evenly applied no matter how much or how little force is exerted. Simply put, if the applicator is making contact with the surface, it will apply the coating evenly as long as the coating was applied substantially to the sponge.
These applicators are good for one use only, and will need to be replaced once the ceramic coating cures and hardens into the applicator material. Use with ceramic gloves for best results to avoid getting the ceramic coating on your fingers and hands. Always secure the cap on the coating bottle as soon as you have finished pouring a few drops onto the applicator. You may be able to use an applicator more than once if you only use one side of the applicator and then a new side for the next application; however, once the excess ceramic residue cures and crystallizes on the surface of the applicator, it will no longer be a soft, safe surface, and the applicator could then potentially scratch other surfaces.
