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.

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

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

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 also worth noting that their are different types of ceramic you can use in products.
I watched a video of John Hogg (anglewax chemist) and he showed the different types and explained the cost difference between them.
Basically a manufacturing company can add ceramic ingredients that actually do nothing to improve the product but they are not lying when saying it contains them.
From what I can work out the real deal si02 is very expensive and I’d be surprised if many products actually contain it.
With regards to meguiars ceramic wax, I saw a video that the data sheet shows it actually contains no si02.
Just another company “jumping on the bandwagon”
I’ll stick with wet coat for this type of product
