    I would expect that GG 3-1 has tighter beading on top of a coating, like most coating toppers. Standalone they usually are not as good as coatings. Hopefully on top of coatings they are providing beading close to the base coating.

    So when topping a coating i’ve notice most enhance the traits of the coating not mask it.

    And yes when I topped My coating performed the same but when i applied to my hood (non coated) it performed like most sio2 toppers. Performed better than Elixer and Cure on bare paint to me.

    I dont believe SNS has Sio2. Didn’t see it on SDS. I believe that is major difference to Hybrid Solutions line... addition of Sio2

    Agree, no SiO2 or ‘ceramic’-anything in SNS.

    Griots 3-1 Cermaic wax

    Doesn’t mention on website says blend of synthetic sealants, carnauba, polymers. You might be right though, forgot they came out with new and improved SNS and yes remember reading it did have sio2. In the hybrid solutions bottle they call it them “sio2 polymers” so maybe thats it.

    My apologies. Never tried the new one
