Can you explain the ceramic protectant. I'm not sure what you are talking about or how it's applied.

Thank you.

Hydro Silex. It's incredible stuff, I used it on the boat when I got it home and it held up all year, beads water like mad and doesn't spot much. It seems expensive until one realizes it will coat several vehicles a bottle. Just spray it ob, wipe it around, let it dry and buff. The best detailer I have ever used. I expect a bottle will last me two seasons for both OFM Lunds and my truck. Don't use the wet application, that can leave spots if your water is not real good.
