    Windshield coating... What’s new/best?

    Are there any new window coatings out there that are standouts? I searched by couldn’t find much recently. I’d like to catch some on cyber-sale! Thanks

    I have liked Opti-Glass. It`s very easy to use. The sprayer tends to get clogged though.

    Glassparency, but you need to be an authorized installer.

    What glass coatings have you tried?

    I have had success with McKee`s, Optimum Opti-Glass, CarPro FlyByForte. FlyByForte has been the most durable for me. McKee`s is best bang for the buck.

    I recently purchased and applied Drexler Ceramic Glass Coat. Very user friendly and easy to work with like their paint coating. I don`t have water behavior updates on this as I just applied it to someones vehicle. I hope to get some feedback until I test it side by side with something else.

    Adam`s has wipes for their glass coating application. Similar to glassparency.

    It is good but not the easiest to work with in my experience. It is a bit of a hassle to wipe off. It also tends to disintegrate foam applicator pads even after washing them out. It`s done this to a few pads. As far as the sprayer flushing it out with hot water keeps it from clogging up.

    In a spray format I would take McKee`s over Opti-Glass.

    Have tried a few, currently liking Gtechniq G1. For something less durable bet very easily applied more frequently, Angelwax H2Go worked well.

    Kept more detailed notes on the ones I`ve tried here: https://budgetplan1.wordpress.com/gl...Glass_Coatings

    I too have had good success with G1. I used Gyeon`s view as well but it did does as well as the Gtechniq. For side windows Cancoat works well for me

    Ha, I always found it very easy to wipe off, unless I`m not remembering correctly. I usually use a blue Scott towel to apply so I haven`t run into the applicator issue. I`ll try the hot water trick on the sprayer. Optimum suggested soaking in mineral spirits if it`s already clogged, but I didn`t try that so I don`t know if it works.
