Luxxio's speedy coating is a wet application, next generation polymer, providing amazing water repellency, shine and uv protection for matte and gloss surfaces.
I have an old car with a lot of battle scars (mainly scratches in odd areas) but it is easy to drive and is very versatile in tight places. However, I am aware that scratches can generate rust and I want to keep it on the road as long as I can, so anything that will protect the paint work from further deterioration is a good idea!
It is lucky that it has to be applied to a wet surface because it has rained almost constantly of late so I would not have been able to try it otherwise. The instructions were straightforward (at least, for the most part) but I was not sure how long I would have between showers for the process, so I decided to limit my trial to the front windscreen, bonnet and rear vision window. The rest of the car can be done in a day or two when the weather has settled down.
It is two days since I treated the selected areas, and I am pleased to report that so far there is a noticeable difference. On the bonnet area, the raindrops have formed little globules that can be flicked off; the windscreen is not fogging up nearly as much as it used to: in fact, visibility is greatly improved. It has rained several times over these two days so there has been plenty of opportunity to check the effect. I drove into town 24 hours after I had treated the windscreen; it started to rain again when I was returning home, but visibility was still excellent.
Application was easy enough; I followed the instructions exactly, but when I got to the very end I ran into trouble. According to the last paragraph, the silica coating should be allowed to "cure for 24 hours (after application) to increase protection and water beading effects". But it does not explain how this curing should be done. Does that mean the car should not be driven for 24 hours? I stayed home just in case it was that. Or did it mean the surface should be kept dry during that time? That was not an option! Or did it just mean no other cleaning products should be used on it? Still unclear. I would like to have had that clarified as I wanted to give the product the best possible chance to do its job.
Other than that, the process went smoothly. The spray mechanism is adjustable so you can have a fine mist or a heavier spray - depending on which part of the car the product is being applied to. There is clear safety information on the bottle, including a warning not to breathe in the vapours - although if it is being applied to a car parked outside, this is unlikely to be an issue. I will be monitoring how well the coating lasts; weather permitting, I will be tackling the rest of the car as soon as possible and will then start checking results weekly. Hopefully this will slow down the general depreciation of the paintwork and will make winter driving a lot safer with improved visibility.
My partner's family are absolute car fanatics, who live for everything to do with cars if there are cars racing on tv they watch them if there are car shows on in the weekend they attend them, and if the stock cars are on they are there! Being so crazy about cars means that they wash and clean there cars on a weekly basis, if not more however I am quite the same when it comes to cleaning my car as it is usually a job I tend to try and get out of doing whenever possible, especially as my car can become filthy the day after a clean due to me traveling on 100km country roads almost every day for work!
When I came home with my bottle of Luxxo Speeding Coating my partner asked me why I had gotten it, in his family's mind there is only one brand of car cleaner that can be used to make a car appear spick and span, and in their minds, this was not it! I finally persuaded my partner to let me try it out on my car which really needed a clean, and after he went off and researched the product online to check it's suitability he was rather impressed as all of the reviews which he came across were more or less 5 stars, so a good start right from the get-go.
The Luxxio Speedy Coating comes in a stylish black spray bottle, with a large sized, easy to use trigger. Using the product could not be quicker or easier it really is simple, after washing your car you simply apply 2 to 3 sprays of Speedy Coating per panel (while the car is still wet) and rub it into the surface using a clean, dry sponge, after leaving the sealant for 10 to 30 seconds you then rinse the car to remove any residue, and then spread and water activate the sealant before finally drying the surfaces that it has been applied to. I applied this to all parts of my car, including paint surfaces, windows, rims, and plastic surfaces all of which it worked great on.
Luckily for me the next day at work it rained so I was able to test the product out fully. From my work window I could see my car and several of my colleagues sitting outside and I could notice the difference between all of our cars, as I watched the rain run on to the cars, my car you could notice the water beading unlike on their cars and so I was impressed by the results, driving home that day was a lot nicer also as the rain hit the windscreen and clearer to see out of. Overall I am most impressed by this product it has given my car a beautiful glossy, shiny finish and it has increased my visibility out of my windscreen, with the product lasting for up to 3 plus months this is well worth the price and I can see it lasting me some time. I look forward to trying out other products in the range.
