    If I where to guess it's just so little of protection chemicals that you would need to be useing it daily. The glossenhancer though can be on for a longer time. So maybe if you use weekly or every other week you could repair the coating very little at the time. So a more stout topper or as the Wolfgang über SiO2 wash is a better choice if you want to revive the coating some. Just thoughts though.

    No doubt WG is pricey, but I’m not aware of any similar shampoos to compare it with (maybe loosely to something like Enigma wash, but can’t say for sure as I haven’t used it).
    Carpro Hydrofoam and Gyeon Bathe + would fit this range maybe also. Hope you get Sonax Wash and Seal soon as it's a combo with the Sonax Spray and Seal or synergy. Have not used the Sonax Wash and Seal as it's going to long between the washes for me sadly. But will see if I can use it soon. Think that Mike Phillips has tested this and was quite happy about it. The Wolfgang über SiO2 wash seems great and an easy way to be keeping a car protected with regualar washing only if wanted.

    KILLER CAR WASH - Wolfgang Uber SiO2 Coating Wash

    She’s doing it again...

    I come home and Stacy has her H-RV parked outside to let Mother Nature wash it.

    We had a powerful rain storm moving through and Stacy knows a hard rain will pretty much flush all the airborne dirt and dust off the car.



    Last thing I did to it was wash it with the Wolfgang SiO2 Coating Wash.

    If the car is still wet in the morning I’ll take water beading shots.

    Ha ha...

    Re: KILLER CAR WASH - Wolfgang Uber SiO2 Coating Wash




    Shared on page 5 here - amazing before and after pictures....

    Pictures: Autogeek’s Roadshow Class with PRAXIS Detailing in Auburn, Indiana


    From page 5




    First thing Sunday morning we washed a staff member's daily driver car so we could use it later for going over One Step Production Detailing. This car was very dirty and also incredibly neglected. It doesn't look like it's been clayed or waxed in 10 years.

    2008 Dodge Avenger





    Putting a product to the test

    A brand new car wash was recently introduced and in my original review, (also the first time I used the product), I mentioned that I was so impressed I would be switching over to this car wash for my own personal cars and I shared that in my second review. Check out my first and second reviews in the links I listed at the very bottom of this post.


    The idea being, is this SiO2 car wash will truly lay down a layer of coating each time you use it to wash your car. I knew the Avenger was in super bad condition so I decided to test the car wash out with the class and see if we could get the same results I've been getting on my own.



    This car has just be sprayed down with water. The SHINE you see on the hood is water. The water is NOT beading up but laying COMPLETLY FLAT.





    Here's your truly pointing at the new car wash...





    Pouring some into a bucket of clean water.





    Thoroughly mixing the car wash with the water using my mixing stick that I take with me wherever I go.




    Now I'm only going to wash one half of the hood....







    Here's Mike Liebing, our host rinsing the hood...





    BOOM!
    You can easily see wherever the car wash touched the paint the paint is now beading water as though it has been coated.






    Driver's side = Phenomenal water beading in context


    There was ZERO water beading before we washed this side of the hood






    Passenger side - The only water beading is the places the Wolfgang SiO2 Car Wash touched.





    Nice product. It's expensive. I'd recommend buying the gallon next time it's on sale and then mix 2 capfuls to 2-3 gallons of water and CAREFULLY HAND WASH your car.
