Reacting with sunlight, Glidecoat RPL chemically breaks down dirt and other contaminants. Oil-repellent and hydrophilic, water sheets off the coated surface, taking the grime and oily black soot with it. This makes it ideal for RV crowns that accumulate dew, rain and AC condensates that combine with dirt to cause streaking.
Using Glidecoat RPL is straightforward for both the DIYer and professional RV detailer. It can be applied with a sprayer by lightly—but thoroughly—misting a 3′ x 3′ section. Or if by hand, a quarter-sized dollop is placed on a microfiber applicator and worked in an overlapping up-and-down, side-to-side pattern. The surface is then buffed with a clean microfiber cloth to remove any excess coating and achieve a uniform finish. RPL needs to cure for 12 hours before getting wet.
A 50ml bottle of Glidecoat RPL covers up to 110 sq. ft. and costs $99; 120ml is $195 and protects up to 260 sq. ft.; and 250ml is $365 and covers up to 550 sq. ft. Glidecoat RV Ceramic Coating costs $85 for a 50ml container that will protect up to 60 sq. ft.
