Best Rain Repellent

Hi all ,

As title really. Yes, before anyone asks me to search the forum, I have looked. However, there are so many different opinions, so I'd appreciate an up-to-date response from you all, as I'm getting confused! I don't wish to spend a lot of money, so the Gtechniq range is already out of the question. I have read on here that Angelwax H2GO is good, Wolfs, Autobrite Repel.

Thanks!

Haven't tried Wolfs but I would recommend H2Go out of that & Repel.

Nanolex urban is my favourite, though all fairly similar but loner lasting as you go up the range

I can't get on with gtechniq tbh so i avoid it now

Thanks for that. I didn't realise that it was that price. I just thought it'd be far more because of the Gtechniq brand! I was wrong! What's the difference between this and G5?

Thanks to all!

G1 lasts a lot longer than g5 but is very finicky to apply and if you do it wrong/don't like it then it's a ******* to remove

G5 beads and rolls off at lower speed though

Nanolex however is very easy to apply, rolls off at low speeds and is easy to remove if you don't like it, which you should lol

G1 is a much tougher product and will bond to the glass for much longer and provide rain repellence for up to two years if applied correctly. Application needs to be quite particular and glass must be extremely clean before application.

G5 actual beads off better, takes two minutes to do a window, the window still needs to be very clean to maximise bond but not quite as difficult as G1. G5will only last a couple of months and won't last on the windscreen if you use the wipers at all. A bottle of G5 will go a very long way so really could last you a long time if windows are just topped up when needed.

My suggestion would be to try G5 (which can also be used on Perspex, do the shower doors, it's awesome!) and if you like it then once you run out or it starts to fade then give windows a good polish and panel wipe then try G1.

I'm currently using Autobrite Repel.

A single coat lasts me around 3-4 months on my car, a bottle is around £12 and I use well under a bottle a year. Performance has always been very good and haven't had any problems with wipers juddering or smearing the screen.

I also have Soft99 Glaco but only applied that to my mums car yesterday after Waxstock so i'm not sure how good it is yet.

If you're looking for a longer lasting glass sealant i'd personally go for Gtechniq.

The bottles of G1 look pretty small. Will I be able to protect all of my exterior glass sufficiently?

I think it'll either be Angelwax H2GO or Gtechniq C1.

Hmmmmm...
