    Re: What Happened To My Ceramic Coating?

    Chemical Guys Speedshine Detailer. Has basically the same level of protection, and hides light swirls. Also adds gloss. Also can be used in direct sunlight without any finicky application processes.

    Turtle Wax Jet Black Spray Wax was able to do that as well, not sure if it still is in production.

    Any kind of cheap detail spray that contains Silicone will do basically the exact same thing.

    Reloads adds gloss, and then kills the coating underneath. Not sure if that makes it worth applying at all.

    At the same time, I haven't seen protection from it yet. Adds gloss and visually decent water beading. However in practice, the water does not bead off very well. Lower contact angle on the product.

    I don't know if I would call it a spray sealant. Sealant seems like too much of a stretch for what it does and doesn't do.

    Well it certainly isn’t a quick detailer like alot of people go around calling it.

    No, it's definitely not a quick detailer. Mind you, it's not just Reload. Reload, Cure, etc, a lot of those products I find give great water beading, and adds some gloss but that's usually about it.

    In your opinion what specific thing does Reload fail to do that prevents it from being a good spray sealant?

    Re: What Happened To My Ceramic Coating?

    The contamination build up from Reload. For whatever reason, a month after having reload on with consistent washes, the paint already feels like sandpaper again. I don't get that with the other protection that I've used. I use Iron X on Reload, and it degrades the Reload on the paint and I still feel like I need to clay after. Not something I encounter necesarily with a lot of other products.

    Now the newest version may have changed this, but all the versions I've used, it required a finicky application. I used to put two spritz or so per panel on a damp microfiber towel to avoid streaking. I've applied it in all temperatures and found it streaked like crazy. I was using decent quality microfiber towels to application and removal. Whether that method affected the durability, I don't know. But that's also the only way I've found it to be usable.

    I was hoping you’d say that. We think alike.
    That’s my #1 priority when it comes to lsp.

    Don't get me wrong, I use coatings for myself but I use fall out remover and it's back to being fine after a good wash. That I can accept but with Reload, it feels like the next step is to clay and re-polish lol
