1. Apply a Carnauba Wax
After the coating has cured you are able to apply a carnauba wax over the paint. Be sure that the wax is strictly a wax, and does not contain any "cleaners". This will add some gloss, enhancing the "wet look" of the vehicle. It will also give protection to the paint. Carnauba waxes generally need to be applied every 3 to 4 months.
Some Pure Carnauba Waxes are listed below:
2. Use Reload/Cure or a complimentary Quick Detailer.
There are several detailer's designed specifically to extend and enhance the effectiveness of a coating. These can be used on a clean, dry surface. They are generally sprayed on, and buffed off using a soft, plush, clean microfibre towel.

3. Use a Booster Wash
Just like the Quick Detailer's, there is also a line of washes available to extend and enhance the effectiveness of a coating. They can be used with the two bucket method, or also with a Foam Cannon.

4. Wash and Dry your car Properly.
When washing and drying your car be sure to follow safe washing techniques that will not deteriorate the paint or the finishes on your car. Do not use dish soap, All Purpose Cleaners, or harsh chemicals. For more information on how to wash and dry your car please visit these blogs:
5. No polisher or cleaner waxes.
When maintaining your paint be sure not to polish or use waxes that contain abrasives, or "cleaners." These products will break down your finish and remove the coating.
