Wanted to like it. I applied this over a coated vehicle. Went on easy. Felt like applying purple colored water. Different than C2V3. It lasted about as long as purple colored water. One rain storm and a wash and it was gone.
Perhaps use it every wash?

Bought this a few months ago, almost a year and after several months of testing and it does not last on the paint more than a month; just after a maximum of one month, it is gone, at the beginning of the application works very well ... only lasts about three weeks .

Ive been extremely satisfied with HYDROSILEX! I've done side by side comparisons with Mckees Hydro Blue and Gyeon Wetcoat and HYDROSILEX outperformed them both! I will definitely be purchasing more!

I used it on my show car and a couple motorcycles. Product goes on as easy as possible, looks great & shines awesome. I have not drove them in the rain yet or had to re-wash them so we'll see...

Super super slick finish... very hydrophobic, easy to use, a great shine much better than paste or liquid wax or any traditional sealant that I used in the past.

So I coated my car back on June 2, 2018 with TAC systems power plus, a 70% Sio2 based coating. About 6 weeks later I applied TAC system Moonlight, a 50% Sio2 product to the car as a "booster". Next up, about another 6 weeks, I applied TAC system 1 Step Master, a 25% Sio2 product to the car, you can see I just can't keep my hands off of the car, this leads me to Hydrisilex.

I used to be a part of a major detailing forum based in FLA and since leaving there more products have come my way, it's like THEY found me and Hydrosilex is one of these products and I'm glad it did! I first used it on my wheels after a good cleaning and while they were wet I sprayed them with Hydrosilex, let it sit for about 20 seconds and power washed it off and let me tell you this...BEADS, alot of them! So easy to use right there, now wheel cleanings are MUCH easier! Then I decided to apply yet ANOTHER topper to my Sio2 based coating and sealants, but how would it work? I'm pleased to report that I had ZERO compatibility issues and it was soooo easy to use, just spray on like a QD and wipe away, it was THAT easy!

Let's talk about the finish and water beading now. The finish on my car is that much sharper, like going from 10 to 11. Anyone who cleans their car alot can tell when there's a difference, there IS a diff after using Hydrosilex, no if, ands or buts about it. Eventually the rain comes and you know what...BRING IT! The water beading is great and especially on windows, at speed there is NO need to put wipers on, water just goes flying off. Once the car is parked from driving in the rain for hours, like going into work, you come out and have to literally look for the dirt and when you do see it, on the top sides, it's very light and on the sides and even the bottom sections it's basically non-exsistent, it's really THAT good.

In closing you can do so much with this product, coat your wheels, glass and paint, does not matter and although not cheap at $35.00, you get what you pay for, no doubt and I'd say you should be able to do 2-3 dry applications and wheel coatings out of one bottle and at this point the price isnt an issue...just buy it and you'll be blown away!!

So far so good! I have a black crew cab Silverado. It's a lot of paint to keep looking nice as well as be protected. My truck only had 2000 miles on it when I applied Hydrosilex. I gave it a light buff with meguiars 205 before applying. I have to say it does shine! It doesn't have quite the depth I was hoping for but that's not a deal breaker. I am more concerned about protection versus the shine. It's only been a couple weeks and I've only washed it once since I applied it but it seems to be holding up well. Water and rain beads up like crazy! Haven't had the ugly dirt spots you usually get after raining. Doesn't seem like dust clings tonit as Mach either. Hopefully it stays protected for a while between applications. My truck spends all day in the sun while I'm at work and spends the rest of the time outside at home. If it holds up I will definitely buy again! The pure ease of application is great! Waxing or sealing a full-size black truck takes a lot of effort. This took around a 1/2 hour to apply and wipe off then go around once more with a clean cloth to buff. And I only used around 4oz. Should have plenty left to last me while. Do small areas at a time so that the product doesn't get a chance to start drying. It does begin to dry quickly! Haven't tried the wet application method.

LOVE this product and the shine it leaves. I own a 2012 Honda Fit (Milano Orange color) am someone who takes very good care of my car and the finish, because I hope never to have to buy another one. I washed the car with Simple Green and water to remove the old wax, dried it, and then sprayed the product on and wiped as per instructions. The shine was deep and dazzling, and so little effort! And you don't need a lot of product either-a little goes a long way. Rain just beads off! Thanks to my son for turning me onto it.

Tried for the first time a couple week ago and found it very easy to apply and remove. Applied to electric blue 2018 F-150 and have gotten several compliments on how my truck looks. Will certainly continue to use and have recommended to all my care about the vehicle friends.

HydroSilex Recharge is a great product and worth every penny. One bottle was enough for three treatments on my Camaro and two treatments on my girlfriend's Grand Cherokee. IMO it makes regular wax look like a waste of time.

First bottle I ordered was a dud, did not leave behind a slick, glossy finish but still offered some hydrophobic properties, not for a long period of time though. I decided to give it another try and the 2nd bottle I ordered was like night and day from the first one. The 2nd bottle left a slick, glossy finish and I can already tell it is repelling water better than the first bottle. Very happy with this.

This product is awesome! It is very easy to put on and provides a high gloss look. It helps keep your vehicle clean by providing a very slippery surface that stuff can't stick to. To apply, you just spray it on and wipe it off with a microfiber cloth. I put it on my car two weeks ago and my cars look freshly washed and shines like glass. I highly recommend it.

Looks like it should be a great product. Put it on the wifes' car. No rain last week. Will have to wait to see how it repels water. The shine is nice. Very slick surface - better than wax. Can't attest to the longevity, this was the first application. Very easy to apply - wipe on, wipe off. I like that I can apply this to the black plastic parts, no more worries about white residue.

This product is awsome. It is easy to put on verses wax and provides a high gloss look. It is also very easy to keep your vechical clean. After application, just wipe down with microfiber towel or car dust mop. I installed two weeks ago and my cars look freshly washed everyday. I highly recomend it.

This product is incredible when worked and used properly. After a proper clay bar and IPA Wipe down to prepare the panel, it wipes on easy and buffs right off, and adds slickness and hydrophobic properties akin to a ceramic coating. A great option for protection and a definite winner in the paste wax vs. spray sealant battle

I have a black Roush Stage 3 Mustang -show car and it protects and shines better than anything I have used. It is also great on a clear bra - bugs wipe off easily. The more coats I use the better the shine. I love it and it is so much better than wax.

I put it on a 2013 Buick Lacrosse and I saw no differences in the beading.. The car may have already have a ceramic overcoat but I don't know. I think it is a good product if it was much cheaper. It does not work that well on windows so I stripped it and put Rainex back on the glass.

I have been detailing vehicles of all descriptions for 34 years and after using this product, I believe it puts wax of any type in a museum. Far better protection and final finish than wax and a real time saver as you don't have to chase wax lines in cracks etc. and time is $. Works as advertised and I am a repeat customer for sure.

I have a "garage queen" 350Z roadster up in the mountains of NC that looks and drives great, but unfortunately, my house is located on a one mile long public gravel road. The dust is so thick from passing cars and trucks that I don't dare leave the car in the driveway for any appreciable length of time. At any rate, I applied one application (dry and buff) of recharge and it appears to be somewhat resisting the accumulation of dust on the vehicle and wheels. Will update review as to length of effectiveness and required number and interval of future applications.

Bought to apply in new van. It's ok at first but gets better with ever application. Put there coats in van as soon as we brought it home and bugs wipe right off. I honestly don't think it's as good as advertised but could be a little cheeper for results. I will use from now on instead of finish Detailer. Did not apply to windows but did to all plastic and wheels. Wheels clean up nice.

My car wash protected with a ceramic coating about 6 months ago. This did virtually nothing to the finish or hydrophobic properties. I did the wet application. It may provide something, but I do not see it. Not a great buy but now I know.

Bought this based on the advertising. The ad was better than the outcome. It is certainly not a bad product and maybe it needs to be used a couple times. Personally it's probably as good as any other similar product on the market, but certainly nothing special.
Sorry, it's as honest as I can be.

This product does nothing to improve the appearance of my Hummer H2, I applied it and buffed it that was easy , later checked it and noticed the water beaded off the same as another side that was not applied with hydrosilex. The shine did not improve at all, and I saw no difference after being on for 3 weeks.

This was a timely email request for review of the product. Just today, I completed the first wash after application. So far, the product works as promised. Bugs came off extremely easily, water beaded up amazingly, and the paint still feels very
slick after drying. I will be encouraging others to use it!

I liked the product and since I have 3 Vehicles I went through the first bottle pretty quickly. It definitely makes the cars look just waxed with a really nice shine to it. But I also notice it's been a lot less maintenance keeping the cars clean. Already ordered another bottle.

I'm not a detailer and don't play one on tv. I wanted to get some thing on my daily driven FJ that gets 4 wheeled, wades creeks, plays in the mud and basically gets used hard. I'm hoping that this product does what it says and protects the rig from the Florida sun. uv here is no joke. but only time will tell. I do know it's easy to put on takes small amount of elbow grease to buff dry. It sheds water really well, better than any wax I've tried. I just hope it lasts longer than wax. you have to be careful if you lean against the truck you'll slide off It's very very slick. I touched my glasses while putting it on so went ahead did them too. they are very easy to clean now and it didn't effect them optically. your milage may vary. I buffed and polished the truck and washed it with dawn to get rid of all the wax and then applied it dry. I got the 16 oz bottle and put two coats on every thing including the glass and trim and wheels. and have about a quarter of a bottle left. I like it enough already, that I ordered more. hope this helps. ask me again in a year.

A very unique product, that delivers a striking appearance! Applied to a Red Camaro, which had CQ- UK edition ( 3 layers), applied to it 2 months previously. Easy to spray, good workable/flash time, spray & wipe off. The result was Red paint that looked like "molten lava". Amped up the gloss, and depth of the paint. Great product.
