Anti-Fog Products?

Postby Shine My Ride » Thu Dec 04, 2014 10:14 pm

Anyone tried any of the anti-fog products? If so what do you think of them?

Got a couple of customers asking about them

Thanks in advance

Anti-fog products, in my experience, are extremely hit and miss. The car pro product does work for some but there are so very many people who cannot get it to either work or go one without looking awful when the street lights shine on it. To be honest, I think car pro are battering their head against a wall with that one. From a technical perspective, it is not difficult to do a product which gives anti-fog characteristics. The easiest way to do it, by far, is in a glass cleaner. In practice it is not even something that would make the product dramatically more expensive. Were we in retail (which we are not and never will be), there would be no trouble retailing an anti-fog glass cleaner for the same money as some of the fanboy brands charge for their bog standard product. Performance - hit and miss. The trouble really is when someone has been at the inside of the car with silicones. Many people don't realise it, but those 'pink sheen' or dash dressings, almost always have silicones in there. If there has been spraying onto the dash then it gets on the glass. Once it is there, it is a disaster to get rid of. Most of the time, you dissolve it in one spot and spread it about somewhere else. The silicones do absolutely the opposite of the anti-fog product. That means that you cannot form the nice even film of the anti-fog coating because the silicone causes it to break up. So then the performance fails. At least, when it is in a glass cleaner, the glass ends up looking OK, either way. With the dedicated products, there is a fair chance that you just end up with neither AF performance or clean glass.
