Yes, it can be applied using the recommended mixing ratio for application with a foam cannon. Mix 1 to 2 ounces of Recharge in a typical 32oz foam cannon bottle, with water. For a heavier application, simply pour Recharge into the foam cannon bottle, then apply. Pour any unused product back into Recharge bottle when finished. Make sure that your foam cannon is properly set up and adjusted to minimize waste of product. A simple quick pass is usually all that is required.

By design, HydroSilex Recharge gives instant hydrophobic effect upon contact. Because it is engineered to be applied wet, the surface can be exposed to water immediately.

14 days if it was baked or 30 days if it was air dried.

Yes, HydroSilex Recharge is great for use on Paint Protection Film as those products do not have built in protection against UV exposure. It will help keep those surfaces easy to clean by creating a slick barrier, without the common build up by waxes and sealants on the edges of the film.

Marine is a higher dilution for a more porous surface such as a gelcoat.

HydroSilex Recharge was designed to be continually used for maintenance and to have the ability to be layered. Which means that the product can be applied and will add an additional layer to the existing Recharge layer on the surface with each use. It is recommended to allow a week between applying a layer.

 

Hydrosilex is an instantaneously curing product. Given that information applying in direct sun can cause the product to set too quickly causing high spots or an uneven coating on the vehicle.

 

Yes, Hydrosilex is a multi-surface friendly product that can be used on almost any surface, including vinyl wraps; giving you the benefits that you have seen in our videos.

A typical application will take approximately 4 to 6 ounces per vehicle depending on the size of the vehicle. For example, if you have a mid-size or sports car, a 16 ounce bottle will give you about 3 to 4 applications. For dry and wet applications, a light mist is all that is usually required.

 

If the application looks hazy, it usually do to the following:

1. The product was not rinsed properly until the water runs clear.

2. The was allowed to dry on the surface and was not leveled fast enough

3. Too much product was applied to the surface

To remove it or level it, use a water rinse to immediately to level the product onto the surface. Do this until the water runs clear. You can also use a clean, dry microfiber towel to buff the areas. A simple rewash of the vehicle can also be done to level out the excess product.

 

Recharge is designed as a replacement for traditional waxes and sealants. Our recommendation is to install Recharge as the sole product and not in conjunction with a wax or sealant. Those products will not add any additional benefits and can interfere with the features of Recharge. For automotive paints, if the vehicle requires claying, removing the contaminants will create an even slicker surface when using Recharge.
