Saw this advertised on Halfords web site the other day - be interesting what people’s thoughts are on it...

There are a few YouTube videos from the detailers in the USA. They seem quite enthusiastic about it.
Hell of a price lift for here though. Was about $16 over there.

Its another SI02 detailer/spraywax. Meguairs are trying to jump on the ceramic band wagon. Its been tested and gets broken with various cleaners etc

Nonsense reviews tbh and don't simulate real world situations in the slightest.

Couldn't agree more. Making a fool out of us, won't be using it until it's priced fairly.

It contains 1 -5% silicon, it will not last as long, and contains a lot less than other similar products.

Again it's rubbish. You can't test durability through a products ability to repel chemicals. It isn't a representation of real world durability in the slightest. One product could stand up to APCs etc far better than another yet in the real world the one that suffered most from the APC lasts the longest.

As for these ingredient claims by companies, 1-5% of silicon yes but how much of that contributes to the total volume?

'An other similar product' could be 5% of 500ml but the product contains 400ml water meaning of the ingredients, 5% is silicon which amounts to 5ml.

Ceramic hybrid wax could also be 5% of active ingredients is silicon but only contains 100ml of water. 5% of 400ml means 20ml of silicon. This is why the reviews you are talking about (I know which) are so wrong. 5% of silicon in one product could work out more than the 15% silicon another product claims.

I got the percentage off the data sheet from Meguairs...not from a review

It's still irrelevant mate. Read what I wrote.
