    Hydrosilex Recharge

    I just used this today. Had to try it out. I just used it on the hood of our coated Benzo. I used the `dry` method. The car was dry and I wanted to see how it performed/performs as a coating topper.

    Smell: Not unpleasant. Can`t place it. A little fruity maybe?

    Viscosity: Watery. A little goes a long way. It spreads easily and I did not encounter any streaking.

    After wiping, the surface was ridiculously slick! Very nice!

    I will keep this thread posted with any additional beading properties/longevity.

    I also tried it out yesterday on my TT Roadster. Off label - as can be expected from me - as a drying aid. Excellent results.

    Nice to see the Jae-mobile is still getting some love! Is this the same manufacturer as the coating? Or did you `cross the streams`?

    Re: Hydrosilex Recharge

    Just tried Hydrosilex Recharge after a Wolfgang Uber Rinseless Wash in the garage this evening. Car was coated 6 months ago with CarPro CQuartz TiO2.

    The product is excellent! It reminds me of Reload, but without the oily feel and potential application issues.

    The paint surface after applying is very slick.

    Durability has yet to be seen...

    Re: Hydrosilex Recharge

    OK, used it some and applied it `properly` now that I had a little time. The car is coated. I waterless washed it, clayed it and then used Hydrosilex on the whole vehicle excluding the glass. Now that I know I did it the `right` way, I will be able to give proper updates!




    Super glossy!

    Re: Hydrosilex Recharge

    This HydroSilex is a product to watch and to also get. It`s stupid easy and since we have been using it for a good while now the results and feedback from customers has been great. Very slick and super gloss.

    I would say, depending on care methods, 3 months is good estimate. Can be sold to customers as a "booster" to what ever coating applied OR just sell it as a "coating up-sell". $500 detail BUT we can add a HydroSilex coating for an extra $175 kinda deal.

    Re: Hydrosilex Recharge

    OK...Hydrosilex? Who makes it? And where do I get it?

    Similar to HydroBlue?

    So it can be applied either as a stand alone coating or on a wet car, like HydroBlue or used a quick detailer? Geez...sounds like a game changer. I thought hydroBlue was the ticket.

    Re: Hydrosilex Recharge

    Skeptical but interested and will follow along. If it`s just another flavor of something like CarPro Reload, I`ll likely just stay with what I know. If it turns out better than I`d move to it. In terms of "slickness" I do enjoy that property on toppers/detail sprays. Optimum Opti-Seal is excellent for that too. Not sure how the two compare or the longevity vs one another but it would be an interesting test. I love the Opti-seal WOWA application and know it does excellent on glass, especially windshields.

    I`m not worried nor do I care about frequency of application / longevity but it`s nice to know. The reason being is like most car guy detailers I`m always touch the car in some way with something to keep the very top level of treatment going.

    To me removing road grime and contaminants are key to the hydrophobic property that I love as I dry my cars with a blower. Nothing aggravates me more than to see thousands of little droplets left on the surface as I hit it with a blower. That IMO is a sign of road grime or contaminants holding the water back. That`s something no topper will address.

    I value Scott`s experience and opinions a lot so I`ll be keeping an eye on his updates.

    Re: Hydrosilex Recharge

    I just did a maintenance wash on the vehicle and I added one additional `layer` of this product via the `wet` method. Very easy to use and similar to a lot of the water activated sealants out there IMO, in terms of hydrophobic properties.

    Re: Hydrosilex Recharge

    The MSDS/SDS is not on line. It is promoted as hydrophobic ceramic, suggesting that the “ceramic” is fumed Silicon dioxide on a polymer, properly called PolyDiMethylSiloxane. PDMS is at AmaXon for ~$10/8 oz. A common name is dimethicone It is emulsified in water.

    For about $20 I got PDMS, and an emulsifier, enough to make about twenty gallons. “Doug’s DIY Shinola” @ Link Removed

    Re: Hydrosilex Recharge

    Has anyone tried IGL premier and can tell me how this product stacks up to that ?

    I’ve been happy with IGL Premier and was wondering how HydroSilex compares
