    I’m always worried about the spray heads. When air hits most coatings they start to harden as that is what they are supposed to do. This will be the first SiO2 spray that will be on a Walmart shelf. Bubba will bring this stuff back if the spray head doesn’t work.

    ”180+ washes and still going strong” has got me very interested and wondering what kind of pixie dust is in that bottle. Reminds me of the “365 day” stuff from the 80’s.

    So this will last through a mechanical automatic car wash ? I have a Broadway soft cloth I use and it will take lsp away at the rear part behind the tires first from the spinning of it. And with only 1-2 car washes.

    You got a customer for life if this will hold up to that like you said 180 washes.

    It looks like an auto parts store near me can possibly order it

    Thanks

Sometimes referred to as `SiO2 enhanced sealants`, but sealants nonetheless, which kinda implies LSP use.

    Perhaps HydroSilex began the trend towards spray `ceramic coatings` as I seem to remember the initial release mentioning that. Now the spray on, rinse off products are beginning to refer to themselves as `coatings` (McKee`s 37 Hydro Blue Sio2 Coating) so it gets even more confusing. So what is a `true` coating anymore? Dependent on % of coating elements contained in a product? I dunno but I`d sure be a little upset if I went to a pro for a coating application and ended up with him/her using something like Hydro Blue or Gyeon Wetcoat...unless the price for the installation of that coating was < $50 and it was noted as a 6-month coating, which is likely even stretching it.
    It`s kinda arbitrary but I define a coating as any LSP that requires a prepped surface to be applied. Meaning once it`s cured it`ll reject additional layers and at end of life you need to polish before you put another layer down. Every sealant I can think of you can slap on an additional layer whenever you want and it`ll stick. So I lump all the Si02 sprays into the sealant category.

    Now just because something doesn`t fit my definition doesn`t mean I won`t use it. If it protects like fk1000p and lasts a year on the cheap you can call it sprayable clear coat for all I care.

    That`s insane!

    Some manufacturers claim one year durability because it resists 52 washes (one per week). Based on that formula the CMX has lasted the equivalent of 3.5+ years!

    I`d be putting it in tiny bottles and selling each for a fortune, like everyone else.

    Incredibly hard to imagine this as hard fact but incredibly hopeful Mothers has had a small leap in technology to create such an affordable product.

    Will this test be published?

    Re: New Mothers CMX CERAMIC SPRAY COATING

    3hrs a day relaxing at the beach?

    Bring that stuff up North and run it 400 miles a week on 4 of the worst freeways we have to offer; salt, chemical de-icer, brine, construction run-off falling from overpasses (despite the "Clean Water Falling" signs), dust, oil from road resurfacing, morons chucking cigarette butts and leftover coffee out of their windows.

    Mfgs need to start testing these things in places like Detroit, Buffalo and Cleveland during the winter if they want worse-case scenario, real-world conditions. Until then, I`ll continue to take mfg expectations and dividing by 2 to get anywhere near actual lifespan.

    I like to believe Collinite is in-part so durable due to its location and probable testing in the upstate NY region.

    Im with Mothers , if Forrest says that it will last a very long time [a year ] then i think it will last - depending on how its washed.

    Re: New Mothers CMX CERAMIC SPRAY COATING

    I looked all over the internet and couldn`t find any more real information on Mother`s CMX (not even on their website) about prep recommendations - could/should it be applied over another LSP type product or to a bare surface ETC., application tips/tricks, aftercare info or even when it would be available.

    Makes me crazy(er) because if it`s all it claims to be, I`ll forgo getting the Meg`s HCW and go straight to the Mother`s CMX.

    According to this:
    CMX CERAMIC SPRAY COATING - New for 2019! - Wax Forum

    It should be available between December 15 and early February depending where you are. I hope it comes to Australia.

    Mother’s has a Forum too. I think is called Wax Forum. Very little info there, but I think it has all been covered except for actual reviews.
