 Product Description

While MIYABI COAT may be listed as the mainstream glass coating offering from KAMIKAZE, it would be considered the high-end offering from other manufacturers! The low molecular Silane is non-solvent and VOC free like its big brother ISM COAT, but it is flammable (as are all coatings on the market except ISM COAT).

With this new formula, it is more resistant to water spotting than traditional glass coatings.

MIYABI COAT offers a harder, and more brilliant shine than ISM COAT (ISM has a more wax-like gloss), and is extremely easy to apply and remove. Durability for proper application is expected at 18-24 months.

Water repellency is great by itself, but for those wanting the most insane water beading characteristics, we recommend maintaining MIYABI COAT with OVER COAT (sacrificial layer).

For those looking for a hard glass coating with a brilliant shine, and one of the easiest to use coating formulas on the market, then MIYABI COAT is the clear choice.

 

Recommended system:

MIYABI COAT

OVER COAT (sacrificial layer, very high hydrophobic properties, keeps ISM COAT in great condition. Use every few months)

WATER SPOT REMOVER. Any and all types of coatings can be prone to water spots in the right conditions, and this exclusive formula is designed to remove deposits left in new water spots without damaging the coating underneath (most water spot removers WILL damage coatings!!).

 

Note: Once the bottle is opened, the curing process begins. Do not leave dropper attached to bottle, and be sure to use coating within a month or so of opening.

  1. Awsome

    Posted by Addison with Luxury Details on 12th Apr 2017

    I can't see myself buying any others coatings over the kamikaze line. Truly amazing products, real easy to apply. Can work on 2 panels at a time instead of a 2×2 area like a lot of the coating out there. Hydrophobic properties are unreal. Would highly recommend the kamikaze line!!


  2. Sensational...

    Posted by Kurt F on 19th Oct 2016

    2016 Honda Civic Coupe, Aegean Blue metallic paint

    This is a new car which will be a winter driver that spends 8 months of the year sitting outside. While it will get very occasional 'detail-centric' attention, its main purpose will be transportation when weather precludes use of ‘hobby’ cars. Towards that end, I was seeking to ‘lock the car up’ with coatings to keep it protected and looking reasonably decent throughout its lifespan with a minimum of attention.

    After researching and discussing a variety of options with various entities (including the always helpful staff at Esoteric) I decided on what some might deem and ‘overkill’ approach for a car of this nature (product costs will likely be around 4% of the purchase price of a Civic...doh!) but it will also serve as a ‘test bed’ for products I would like to use on the more entertaining cars we have come Spring of 2017. All this will take place in my relatively poorly lit garage by a guy (me) who has been doing this for about a whole 9 months now. I’ve seen cars done with a variety of more popular coatings but anecdotal evidence gathered from a variety of sources indicated that Kamikaze would be a choice I would not regret.

    Decided on:
    Gyeon Q2 Prep: http://www.esotericcarcare.com/gyeon-q2m-prep/
    Gyeon Q2 Iron: http://www.esotericcarcare.com/gyeon-q2m-iron/
    Gyeon Q2 Rim: http://www.esotericcarcare.com/gyeon-q2-rim/
    Gyeon Q2 Trim: http://www.esotericcarcare.com/gyeon-q2-trim/
    Kamikaze Miyabi Coat (2 layers): http://www.esotericcarcare.com/kamikaze-miyabi-coat/
    Kamikaze ISM Coat (1 layer): http://www.esotericcarcare.com/kamikaze-ism-coat/
    Kamikaze Overcoat: http://www.esotericcarcare.com/kamikazi-over-coat/

    Also snatched up some Gyeon BaldWipe (http://www.esotericcarcare.com/gyeon-q2m-baldwipe-microfiber-towel-16-x-16/ ) and Gyeon PolishWipe (http://www.esotericcarcare.com/gyeon-q2m-polishwipe-microfiber-towel-16-x-16/ ) towels. Great stuff...

    While the car was new and had luckily avoided the typical dealer prep, I still went over it with Gyeon Q2 Iron, a Nanoskin AutoScrub Fine Grade Clay Mitt and then gave it a quick hit with Menzerna Super Finish Plus SF-3800 (PO85RD) and a white Lake Country Polishing Pad. Took care of any small scratches/swirls that mighta been there and maybe bumped up the gloss a bit but in any event got me closer to a ‘pure’ surface for the coating(s). Went over the car with the Gyeon Q2 Prep using a combo Gyeon BaldWipe and Gyeon PolishWipe towels. After watching the Esoteric video on applying glass coatings numerous times (https://youtu.be/GbfopTju_es ) and reading the Learning Center article (http://news.esotericcarcare.com/how-to-apply-kamikaze-glass-coating/ ) I cracked open the Miyabi Bottle, snatched up the applicator kit (http://www.esotericcarcare.com/esoteric-elite-applicator-kit/ ) and went at it.

    Having only worked with 2 coatings before, neither of which used the applicator block/micro suede applicator cloth method, there was a bit of trepidation when starting out...so I started in the door jams so I could (try) to figure out what was going on. As it turns out, there was no need for concern; the Miyabi Coat goes on so easily and smoothly that the application process is easier than many waxes/sealants I have used in the past. The temperature was about 70-75 degrees in the garage and it turned out that in my particular case a wait time of around 12 minutes after initial application seemed to be appropriate before removing/buffing off the coated section. The product comes off in an exceptionally easy manner, easily avoiding the high spots and not really be stick or tacky. It only requires a very light touch in the removal/buffing step, using 2 towels as mentioned in the instructional video/article on the Esoteric web site.

    The 2 coatings I had used before (Wolfgang Uber Ceramic and McKees Paint Coating) extol the virtues of their easy application process but the Miyabi Coat far exceeded their ease of use. It is truly amazing how easy the Miyabi is to apply. I applied two coats, about 2 to 3 hrs apart and still had enough left in the 30ml bottle to do 2 or 3 more panels should I need to re-do something if I screwed up. I generally applied the Miyabi to 2 panels and then went on to removal. The more intricate areas such as the front and back fascias/bumpers I did on their own because of their contours and such.

    After completing each coat, I pulled the car out into the sun to check for high spots/streaks but found none. I did mask off some of the trim just in case but between using the applicator block/cloth and a cloth alone, the precision in application likely made that step unnecessary. When I did hit a spot/piece of trim here and there, it quickly wiped off and left no residue.

    Application of this product is absolutely first rate as far as ease of use. The Miyabi bottle was the little, black, round one which required no eye-dropper to apply to the applicator, which was very controllable, easy to use and dispensed the product in exact amounts with ease. I have since ordered and received a second bottle of Miyabi (for a friend who saw the car and decided he wanted his paint to look and feel like ours) and it has apparently been re-packaged with a dropper-style dispensing top (with included dropper, applicator block and applicator cloths) so I would see no reason to doubt that application of product to pad will be even more precise.

    OK, so now on to the more important issue: How did it look? In a word...amazing. Yes, it looks nice and shiny relatively soon after application but it’s the transformation as it cures (especially in the first 24hrs) that really reveals the magnificence of the finish. And it really is magnificent, maybe even more so on darker colored cars as the Miyabi does seem to darken the paint ever so slightly, lending it that sharp, glossy, candy-coated look and hue that certainly stands out. It really sharpened the look and gloss of the metallic in the paint, and, oddly enough, the appearance it left made a few folks actually want to touch the surface as it gave it a look that literally screamed ‘glass coating’. Absolutely stunning in the sunlight with a sharp, distinct reflectivity. And less we forget, this was a Honda Civic which likely receives the most basic of paint jobs from the factory so I would expect higher-end cars with ‘better’ paint would only magnify the brilliance of the Miyabi coating.

    Additionally, the cost of the Miyabi is certainly in line, and even in some cases more economical, than other coating choices available. I’d say dare to be different, step away from the ‘mainstream’ coating choices out there as the Miyabi application and results are certainly a step above. Although it came out truly stunning when done by a do-it-yourself-er, I’d bet that an experienced professional could even step it up a notch or two.

    As I was adding another application of Kamikaze ISM on top of the Miyabi (which turned out to be about a day later), I don’t really have any observations on the performance of the Miyabi in the rain or such but it’s a pretty safe bet that it performs, at the very least, as well as Kamikaze Overcoat does in the rain; that is to say ‘excellent’ and very ‘self-cleaning’.

    Miyabi will definitely be going on our black Corvette next Spring, which has black non-metallic paint. I’m guessing Miyabi will give that an incredible, piano-black, glossy, sharp look.


  3. High gloss easy to use

    Posted by rick levy on 19th Sep 2015

    I just applied Miyabi coat to my Mercedes after polishing it and the depth of shine and gloss is fantastic. It was easy to use following Todd's suggestions. The only problem is that as I was finishing I dropped the bottle and it broke. I had enough in the bottom of the bottle to finish but none for a second coat. So be forewarned this small bottle is glass and will break.
