Esoteric Elite Applicator Kit
When applying glass and quartz coatings, you want use a very high quality applicator to make sure that you get an even coating, and do it without scratching your highly polished surface.
With the ESOTERIC Elite Applicator kit, you get a re-usable applicator block, and 5 ultra-soft Esoteric Microfiber coating cloths for applying all types of durable coatings.
Wrap a fresh, clean suede Esoteric Microfiber coating cloth around your applicator block, and apply the coating in straight lines (not circular). Also wipe the area in the opposite direction (cross-hatch pattern) to ensure an even coat. After application, throw away the microfiber coating cloth that you used, and wash the foam part of the applicator block with warm, soapy water. Allow to dry before re-using.
DO NOT re-use the microfiber coating cloths. Even if you soak them immediately afterwards, you risk having the coating harden into the cloth, which would scratch the surface if used again.
If you need more coating cloths, you can purchase them in 10-packs without the foam applicator block.

Applicator kit came with the applicator block and red Esoteric branded ultra-soft suede cloths. The red cloths with this kit are much more akin to a smooth silk cloth, which allows for smoother application of stickier coatings like Kamikaze ISM as opposed to the more 'suede-like' nap of standard micro-suede cloths (i.e. Gyeon).
Prefer these red cloths to the standard blue cloths that come w/ the 'refill kit' of 10 blue cloths. Additionally, the red Esoteric cloths seem to absorb less product as quickly the 'nappier' standard application cloths that come with other coating applicators.
When doing coatings in the future will get this kit with block + cloths as opposed to just a refill kit of 10 cloths; a buck or two more expensive for equivalent amount of cloths but definitely worth it.
This is a very nice applicator block for coatings! Just wrap it with a cloth and apply your coating of choice. The bottom layer of foam on the block is very nice as well since it contours to the surface ensuring a consistent and even application! Great for applying paint, trim, or glass coatings!
