Carlack Long Life is one of our all-time favourite paint sealants, which we frequently use to add multiple coats of durable acrylic protection to freshly prepared paint finishes. Carlack Long Life quickly and easily extends the durability of the protective sealant basecoat laid down by Carlack Complete and can be layered many times, because the absence of chemical cleaning agents in the formula means that each fresh application will not strip or degrade the coats already laid down.
Carlack Long Life produces an exceptionally smooth finish, which is best described by mirror-like reflectivity, razor sharp clarity and, on metallic and pearlescent finishes, the most intense degree of flake pop imaginable. In terms of suitability, we favour using Carlack Long Life on light to mid-tone metallic and pearlescent finishes, although in truth it delivers an awesome looking finish on most colours. As an essential product in our line up, Carlack Long Life comes highly recommended.
Carlack Long Life is a pure acrylic sealant that extends the durability of Carlack Complete and other acrylic-based all-in-one cleaners by building an increasingly smooth and more sharply reflective finish; the more layers you build up, the better the finish gets in terms of both looks and durability. Because it contains no chemical cleaning agents, Carlack Long Life is well suited to being layered many times, as each fresh application will not strip or degrade the existing sealing layers.
Carlack Long Life improves the resistance of the existing finish to environmental threats, such as UV radiation and the organic acids in bird droppings and bug splatter. In addition to its notable protective qualities, the resulting ultra-smooth finish also ensures that low-angle incident light bounces off cleanly, producing mirror-like reflections, while the high refractive index of the acrylic polymers allows high-angle light to penetrate into the finish and visibly enhance flake effects.
Carlack Long Life should be applied hand. For best results, apply it to freshly polished paint using a damp Meguiar’s Microfibre Applicator Pad. Only 2-3 pea-sized drops of product are required per panel, and these should be wiped on thinly and evenly to form a hazy looking film that should be buffed off immediately using a PB Deluxe Buffing Towel (if the film starts to dry out and proves difficult to remove, lightly mist it with Carlack Fast Detailer and continue buffing). If you wish, you can apply multiple coats in quick succession, as long as you leave 30 minutes between each one.
