TopCoat® CRYSTALEEN® has the most advanced ceramic technology, which will outperform & outlast any ceramic coating on the market.
Get professional results at a quarter of the cost with the most advanced ceramic on the market using TopCoat Molomer® technology for superior bonding and protection.
If you're looking for the next level of protection on your surfaces, Crystaleen is for you. Traditional ceramic coatings cost upwards of $1500 and will deteriorate over time. Why spend a small fortune when you can do it yourself with a time tested & proven technology that is superior to any ceramic on the market. Don't pay the pro, be the pro with our easy to use and easy to apply professional ceramic coating with Molomer® Technology.
The surface to be coated must be clean, dry and free from dirt, oily residue, grime, loose oxidation, spores (mildew) or any other surface contaminate that could affect product performance. It is imperative to fully and completely clean the surface, as CRYSTALEEN® adheres by chemical and mechanical bonding and must gain proper contact with the surface.
CRYSTALEEN® is packaged in two separate bottles labeled Stage 1 (Sealant-Glassifier®), and Stage 2 (Curing Solution-Hardener), without exposure to air. Shake Stage 1 (Sealant) vigorously for a minute or two until all white sediment is mixed thoroughly in the solution and in suspension. Stage 2 (Curing Solution) does not need to be shaken. Once both parts are ready, attach the spray trigger to the bottles by puncturing the seal with the down spout of the trigger, then threading the trigger on clockwise until the neck of the trigger is tightly secure to the bottle.
**Sealant-Glassifier™: Stage 1 **
Curing Solution-Hardener: Stage 2
Q. Will this protect from Rock Chips?
A. Multiple layers will protect against rock chips, CRYSTALEEN® is incredibly hard! It will mitigate the rock chips, but won't give you 100% protection until you get several coats.
Q. Is it slick and shiny like F11®?
A. No, CRYSTALEEN® is not a slick sealant. It is not designed to be slick. CRYSTALEEN® is a permanent glass sealant. CRYSTALEEN® will have the same feeling as dragging your hand or fingers down a clean glass window. There will be noticeable drag and no slick feel. That is a good thing!! No slickness does not mean CRYSTALEEN® is not permanantly bonded to the surface. You will see the sealant in action when you drive through the rain, you will see its super hydrophobic properties in action!! Remember it is a permanent sealant, not a sealer! Continue to use F11® in conjunction with CRYSTALEEN® for that slick feel and even more superior production to your vehicle.
Q. How long does it last?
A. It lasts forever! It's an aerospace coating, the backbone of our technology was used on the space shuttle! It will not wear off because it is bonded on a molecular level. Nothing will remove it!
Q. Can I apply this if I’m not a professional?
A. Absolutely! Anyone can apply it that can follow directions. Make sure you have cleaned and prepped the surface before applying CRYSTALEEN®. You want a raw surface, without any waxes or sealers, so it can chemically bond with the substrate. Start with Stage 1 which is a sealant, aka the glassifier! You'll start on a clean, prepped surface. Use caution not to get the product in your eyes, and make sure you're in a well ventilated area! Apply it out of the sun in ambient temperature for best results. Shake up the Stage 1 bottle so everything mixes together fully. Start by spraying it evenly across a 2 foot by 2 foot section at a time! Before buffing, immediately move to Stage 2, the curing solution. This is what causes the sealant to bond to the surface on a molecular level. Evenly spray Stage 2 over the same section and let it sit 5-10 seconds, then buff if in with a microfiber towel. Go over it again with a second, dry microfiber towel. Make sure to continue shaking stage 1 before applying each time. You don't want the product to dry before you buff it off. We recommend you do two coats out of the gate for maximum results, and there is no waiting period between coats!
Q. What if I have water spots, scratches, oxidation, etc?
A. You will want to prepare the surface by removing water spots, scratches, and oxidation or other imperfections before applying CRYSTALEEN®!
Q. Do I need to remove wax or polish first?
A. Yes! You want a raw surface, without any waxes or sealers, so it can chemically bond with the substrate.
Q. How do I apply?
A. Make sure you have cleaned and prepped the surface before applying CRYSTALEEN®. You want a raw surface, without any waxes or sealers, so it can chemically bond with the substrate. Start with Stage 1 which is a sealant, aka the glassifier! You'll start on a clean, prepped surface. Use caution not to get the product in your eyes, and make sure you're in a well ventilated area!

I prepared the paint before using. But 100% satisfied with the product and will use again. I do a lot of detailing and would like a gallon of each . Stage 1 &2
Thank you, Steven!
I have been using F-11 on my 1999 Sea Ray 460 Sundancer for several years now and have been amazed at how GREAT it works. During the summer boating season it repels dirt, spider droppings and the always present bird "bombs". With F11 applied, the foreign "elements" are easy to rinse off without soap and do not leave a stain in the gel coat. After rain storms we don't see water spots and washing the boat is a breeze. Not to mention, we have the shiniest boat in the marina. (Bonus!!) I decided to try Crystaleen this winter for the upcoming boating season to see how it compares. The application process is definitely different, being that it is 2 part vs F11. The concern I had was after applying step 1, then spraying on step 2 and combining the 2 parts, was I wiping too much of it off? After the light mixing with a towel I would wait 1 minute then buff per the instructions. I am assuming it worked because water repeals off it amazingly well and the luster ands shine are very deep. I am ordering my 2nd kit so that I can get 2 or 3 applications on it before we launch in May. On my transom and near the water outlet on the hull, I have applied 4 coats. These are areas that get more abuse than others and I spend a lot of time during the summer keeping them clean. I hope Crsytaleen will solve this problem. Some pics of the boat and the incredible shine it gets from Crystaleen and F11.
Hey William! We are so glad to hear that you love the way F11 works on your boat, and that you are now giving Crystaleen a try! I see that you had a few questions about the Crystaleen and its application, so I am going to pass along your information to our technical specialist, Jay. He should be reaching out to you to help troubleshoot and help in any way you need!
I had an issue and I couldn't finish coating my truck, The Customer service rep took care of my issue ASAP. I finished putting 2 coats of the coating today and it looks great. Only time will tell how well it holds up but it does look great right now. Not as easy to apply on the painted parts of the truck as the glass and plastic. Took a little bit to spread the stage 2 coating and a breeze to buff to a great shine. Bill
We are so glad to hear that our customer service team was able to help resolve your issue, and you could finish coating your truck!
I ordered a CRYSTALEEN® kit while waiting on our 21 GMC Sierra Denali to be shipped and delivered. I washed the vehicle using Dawn dish washing detergent, clay barred the entire vehicle to remove any rail dust from the finish (surprised at how little foreign matter was on the finish), wiped the entire vehicle down with 91% alcohol. I followed the label instructions applying stage 1 to a small area followed with stage 2 immediately, and then hand buffing with the supplied microfiber cloth within a few minutes. The kit supplied spray head for Stage 1 failed after about 30% through applying the product. I was able to complete application by dribbling stage 1 liquid on the suppled microfiber applicator. The buffing process was much more difficult than anticipated. The microfiber cloth liked to roll up and the amount of effort required was quite a lot. I have used F11 for years and expected the level of effort to be about the same which is probably not a reasonable expectation on my part. After letting the mostly buffed out CRYSTALEEN® set for a day I went back over the entire vehicle with a fresh microfiber towel and that seemed to be an easier buff giving it a better shine and feel. The CRYSTALEEN® does not feel slick like F11, but does seem to shed water like a well oiled duck. I have only rinsed off the rear fenders of the truck so far and the dirt and water seem to flow right off with little mechanical effort. Pretty impressed so far, but time will tell in a couple of years. I am generally pleased with the outcome and plan to use this product on my new C8 Corvette when it arrives this spring. I reached out to Topcoat concerning the failed sprayer and level of buffing effort and their customer service was outstanding.
I am sorry to hear that the spray nozzle was acting up and was a little more difficult to buff, but I am so glad to hear that our customer service team was able to help you. We are very happy to hear you did love the results, and as always please reach back out to us if there are any more questions or concerns!
Crystaleen is a great product. Easy to use and leaves a great shine.
Bought some in Daytona at Bike Week 2021. Used on my wife's car first, easy application. Great shine after two coats and four months later still looking great. The love bugs that are highly acidic came off very easily. My wife loves it easy wipe off after the car gets dirty and still looks great. I'll be doing the Harleys now before Sturgis trip. I would never write a review without actually testing the product.
That is awesome that you love the results from the Crystaleen! Being able to keep your vehicles clean, and having it easy to clean off is so important to car owners.
Went on easy. Two coats on the Rebel Eddie's challenger followed up by Topcoat F-11. Looks fantastic. We will be doing several Harleys as well for customers. This will be an offering to all of our detail customers!
Applied it to my 2021 Jeep Gladiator. Very easy on, easy off and it looks like it‚Äôs coated with glass! Managed to get 2 coats on it but if you have a full size truck I don‚Äôt think you can stretch it that far. The sprayer on the bottles gummed up; fortunately I had some empty travel size F11 bottles laying around and used those finish the job. I think that helped in stretching it out for 2 coats. Wish it came in a larger size for the money. Overall it‚Äôs a great product and performs as advertised. Will definitely use it again.
Most review comment on the poor quality of the bottles, seemed to do what it's supposed to but only time will tell I guess. Granted my paint isn't in the best shape to begin with but being a black car it needs all the protection it can get. My final note is I was hoping that for the price I would have gotten a little more product to make it go a bit further. So I will probably purchase some more in the future.
Finally got the chance to use my crystaleen (Sept.19). Used the product on my 2013 Ford F150. Very easy to apply. Leaves a beautiful finish with little effort to apply and wipe off. My truck looks better than a showroom finish. I will definately use this product again.
