alien magic anti fog mini review

i was looking to try alien magics anti fog and after speaking to adrian on here he very kindly said he would send me 50ml of prep pro and 50ml of anti fog pro if i did a review of the products only if i used prep pro before the anti fog.
i was intending to polish the glass with a glass polish like i always do then use the prep pro and then anti fog, but adrian said it would be better without the glass polish if i wasnt correcting the glass.

so... i sprayed the prep pro on half of the windscreen and buffed with a fish scale glass cloth which made it squeeky clean!

then i sprayed the anti fog pro on the half where i had used the prep pro and worked it on the glass with a make up applicator which i usually use for glass sealants/trim coatings up and down and side to side with a little bit of pressure.
left it for a few minutes to bond then buffed it gently as directed by adrian with a normal cheap microfiber that i use for interior detailers as i thought the fish scale/glass cloths i had would be too rough and would remove the coating.
it wiped the haze away just fine with no smearing or anything!

2h later i went out to see if it was working and if it fogged up at all which it had done and the product worked very very well!

here is a 50/50 i didnt touch the passenger side glass at all with anything i just left it, there was no coating or anything, it was just cleaned a few months ago with a glass cleaner.



drivers side where i applied it



passenger side with nothing



anti fog pro is a great anti fog product that actually seems to work, not sure on durability though as it was only applied today and i will not be touching it.
the drivers side looked fine and you couldnt tell there was a coating on the glass, no smears or haze.

if you are going to try this then you will need the prep pro as they work together and you need the glass as clean as you can get it for the anti fog to work properly!

also i didnt seem to use much out of the 50ml bottles so it should last me quite a while.

i think i am going to leave my windscreen how it is for the moment and see what the durability is like and not touch it but only the passenger side with a microfiber to demist it when its bad


edit. the water drops are on the outside of the glass not the inside!

Hi Over Kill,

Thank you for the review, great write up and pictures.

Please remember the durability of a single coat is fully effective until the next routine window cleaning or up to 8 weeks if undisturbed.


Thanks

Hi Simonrev,

Yes it can, the key is preparing the surface adequately.

Thanks

As with all the anti fog's not found yet that allows you to drive at night with effecting glare massively almost being dangerous, that will be a good point to follow up on
