    NEW FORMULA HYPER SEAL

    Question - what is the cure time for Hyper-Seal New Formula after being applied to a surface ?

    NEW FORMULA HYPER SEAL

    Odd...I clearly remember seeing the glass warning in product description but it's not there now. Good to know...I'll keep Ron's comments in mind and put Hyper-Seal to work on non-windshield windows ! FYI all my Brand X detailing polishes/sealants were given away yesterday - no need to use anything else now !

    NEW FORMULA HYPER SEAL

    Received my order of Hyper-Seal new formula today and, after an Opti-Coat ONR wash and dry, applied the new formula to my Pro+ coating. It seems to flash faster than the older formula but responded well to quick followup leveling with a pearl microfiber towel. Used it on vehicle's paint, wheels and plastic trim but not on any glass per earlier recommendations. Satin trim remained satin while the gloss areas seemed to get a bit "deeper" glossed. Hopefully it will last for some time !

    If one has previously applied the older Hyper-Seal, does anything "special" need to be done to vehicle before applying the new formula Hyper-seal to assure its proper bonding with Pro+ or other Opti-Coat coatings?

    How long might the new formula resist windshield wiper abuse, or would it better to use it only on non-wiped glass ?

    Good to know. The Rag Company also offers a machine wash product that is supposed to target residues found in microfiber towels. So far it's worked well here: my 500 microfibers do a good job drying ONR (for applying Hyper-Seal I use the foam applicator followed by light rubover with pearl weave microfiber towels.).

    Sounds like a major change....will be fun to see how well the new formula works !

    Silicon Carbide .vs. Graphene

    My apologies: the referred to Youtube coating tester is Scott HD, active on Youtube since 2008, and currently beginning a 25 graphene and 41 way ceramic comparison. Most of his test samples are consumer level and some are from China.

    Silicon Carbide .vs. Graphene

    On Youtube, a detailer by name of Scott H is testing a huge number of coatings, but oddly very few SIC products (Scott H remarked those were very hard to obtain). Test is supposed to last several years.

    Optimum MDR vs Opti-Coat MDR

    Would this also apply to the iron removal Optimum / Opti-Coat products ?
  11. Letting the sprayed distilled water + ONR solution dwell for a couple of minutes seems to help with bug removal, though after microfiber drying I find buggy windows usually need additional cleaning. Still, this process's far easier for mildly dirty vehicles than lugging out/ using the buckets, sponges, etc., and can be done in the garage with little mess. Also, spraying the ONR instantly shows how well the coating's protecting the coated vehicle.

    Playing with FerreX

    Thnx for info. FYI for wheels I now spray Ferrex on a small foam brush on a stick and use that to swab inside the wheels with minimal contact to the iron brake rotor. I then spray some Ferrex on a small terry towel and wipe outer surface of the wheel as followup. After a few minutes I rinse the whole wheel, inside and out. Will keep in mind your Power Clean comments for future !

    Playing with FerreX

    Good to know, thanks. Ferrex surprised me, though....used it on my wheels and watched it quickly discolor/surface etch the brake rotors! Fully understandable as the brake rotors on my Subie are iron/steel. Any suggestions as to what to spray on the rotors for protection __before__ using Ferrex on the wheels? Or is it better to spray Ferrex on a soft towel and gently rub the wheels with that towel and the rinse (avoiding the rotors altogether) ?

    What would happen if one added some ONR to a Power Clean solution? Idea would be to get some ONR polymer lubrication alongside the Power Clean's cleaning.

    Silicon Carbide .vs. Graphene

    Out of curiosity, do SIC coatings reflect heat? I've noticed my Pro+ Outback's Autumn Green color stays surprisingly cool in the sunlight.
