The problem with the ceramic coating is that it stinks really, really bad when you put it on. You don't want to be anywhere near it for a few hours and need plenty of ventilation. 24 hours is even better. Once it's been on there for the "cure" time I can't smell it. But, again, that's on exterior plastics.
If I've learned one thing over the years it's the better a product is......the smellier it is
Whenever they come up with better smelling(or more environmentally friendly) alternative to something that was caustic and had a terrible smell, it never works as good as before
Don't get me wrong, I'd prefer something less smelly and water-based but for whatever reason it has to be bad, to be good
Take for instance PL400, a construction adhesive I used to use it all the time. It worked wonderfully but had an awful chemical smell, dried quickly(actually formed a skin quickly) and basically only wore off your skin if you were unfortunate enough to get it on your skin. About 2 years ago PL400 was reformulated to be more enviromentally friendly
or maybe the feds forced them, I don't know but what I do know other than 1 tube, I haven't purchased PL400 since as it just doesn't work like it used to
It was nice to be able to clean it up with water but it didn't dry nearly as fast and just didn't have the holding power as the caustic PL400. Note I've since found another brand selling a smelly/caustic construction adhesive that works almost as good as the old PL400 but I sure miss the original.
