Live Product Testing - Wolfgang Uber SiO2 Coating Wash

At a recent Roadshow Car Detailing Class, this one,

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

We detailed 10 cars. This includes showing multiple ways to wash a car.

We had a severely neglected daily driver that shows ZERO signs regular washing and certainly no regular waxing let along running a clay bar over the paint to remove built-up contamination. I planned to use this car to showcase the BLACKFIRE One Step as a part of teaching Production Detailing.

Before we could buff on the car though she needed to be washed. Normally the car would be washed using a foam gun and then rinsed, and the foamed again and then the class would mechanically decontaminate the paint using clay mitts to get it clean and smooth during the wash process.

Sharing new products
One of the cool things about our classes is getting to share new products. Such is the case for the new Wolfgang Uber SiO2 Coating Wash. I already had felt the paint and it felt like rough concrete. It was dull and had no shine, so I KNEW it would not bead water. And after rinsing the car off I was right. The water just laid on the hood in a continues uniform layer.

Instead of washing the car with a normal cleaning car wash I chose to use the new Wolfgang Uber SiO2 Coating Wash to show the class how cool this product is. By just wasing the car with this car wash the product is going to impart nano size particles of SiO2 or Silicon Dioxide. This substance will bond to the paint, plastic and glass and create a hydrophobic surface. The benefit to a hydrophobic surface is that it will repel water and thus have a self-cleaning effect. This will make future washing and drying faster.

Of course, this new car wash is ideally used on a car that IS maintained. This means paint that IS clean and smooth and thus it will work it's best. But I like a challenge so we washed this neglected car using this new hi-tech car wash.

Here's the car...

Putting a product to the test

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...

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.
