Automotive Interior & Exterior Instructions
Titania is designed to bond to any interior material - fabric, leather, glass, rubber, wood and provide long-lasting protection from UV fading, staining and odor buildup. Every inch of the interior space will be coated including the A/C system, trunk and any compartments. Remember to keep a clean microfiber cloth in your pocket to wipe any overspray that causes running, puddling of titania.
Every surface being treated must first be wiped clean before applying Titania, especially glass, metal or any reflective surface. Any fingerprints or smudge marks will be trapped under the Titania protective layer and will be difficult to remove. Take the floormats out and set them aside to be treated separately.
The application process starts with treating the A/C system through the fresh air intake. If the vehicle already has odors, you should first replace the cabin air filter (check your owner's manual on location and how to replace). Cabin air filters can be a source of odor as well as bacteria.
(1.) Turn the vehicle and A/C on, and set the intake to fresh air on high. The vents are located just under the windshield on the outside of the vehicle. Titania is sprayed as a mist so it is easily pulled through the A/C system. Keep the doors closed at this time to keep the product flowing throughout the vehicle.
Spray Titania for up to a minute and then turn the vehicle off.
Starting at the driver's side door (2.), spray Titania onto every visible surface, with the cross hatch method, except the glass - glass requires a unique process. Stay 18-24 inches away from the surfaces and spray in a cross hatch pattern. except on the glass, spray first left and right in an S-pattern, and then spray up and down in a similar pattern. For glass make only one pass, either horizontal or vertical, but not both. We typically avoid spraying glass directly because it is easy to overspray glass. Always use a clean microfiber cloth to wipe any overspray, puddling or running of titania. This can occur if you are too close to the glass.
Continue the cross hatch on the door, seat, dashboard, and roof. Spray under the seat and into any compartments. Keep each door closed during this process except for the one you are treating. This keeps the product circulating throughout the vehicle. Repeat this process at each door (3, 4, 5).
By this point a slight titania fog may be visible temporarily inside of the vehicle. Turn the vehicle on and set the A/C intake to recirculate on high. This will pull the remaining Titania out of the air and push it through the vents again. While the vehicle is running and recirculating, open the trunk (6.) and spray the inside in the same cross hatch pattern. Treat the floormats on both sides and place them back in the car. The product will be dry to the touch usually within minutes (depending on humidity), and safe for further cleaning or detailing after 24-48 hours. If there is any overspray or trapped smudge marks, remove them with a strong cleaner within 24 hours and respray that section.
To ensure you get the best results (5 years or longer protection), you want the vehicle exterior paint (even convertible top) and wheels to be in the condition you want preserved. That means getting the vehicle washed and detailed (this can be done by you and/or an experienced detailer). Whether you want a paint correction and ceramic is up to you. Titania will bond and preserve a shiny clear coat paint, or paint with a coat of wax, or paint with ceramic or graphene ceramic finishes and allow them to last much longer based on our lab testing. Once the vehicle is dry you can apply Titania with our patented sprayer and nozzle, using the cross hatch pattern from the General Application Directions here.
Note again, that with glass, you recommend only a single pass, not a cross hatch. And if you have any concerns about overspray on glass, you can simply wipe any overspray from the glass.
When finished, remember to let the vehicle dry before touching (typically minutes) and to store the Titania and clear the sprayer with water to avoid clogging the ultra fine nozzle aperture as described in step #7 in the General Instructions here.
