- The car detailing experts at Meguiar's have announced new Hybrid Ceramic products at this year's SEMA trade show.
- A new Hybrid Ceramic wash and wax as well as a new wash mitt join the lineup as does a Hybrid Paint Coating kit.
- Due to Coronavirus concerns, the 2020 SEMA show has moved to an online format and Meguiar's has launched an interactive virtual experience.
Citing an increase in demand for its Hybrid Ceramic detailing products, the car-care specialists at Meguiar's are expanding the company's lineup of detailing products with a virtual debut at the 2020 SEMA trade show. The new products include a wash liquid with the company's Hybrid Ceramic Si02 additive, which is said to boost surface tension and improve water beading. A double-sided wash mitt is also new.
Intended to be used in addition to the Hybrid Ceramic spray wax, the wash liquid helps maintain the protective coating on the paint's surface. On sale in January 2021, the Hybrid Ceramic Wash and Wax will cost $19.99 and provide enough soap and Si02 boosting liquid for 16 washes.
For those looking to step up their home detailing game, a new Hybrid Paint Coating product has also joined the party. This more expensive kit—$59.99 when it goes on sale next year—uses a hybrid polysiloxane compound to provide protection and deliver exceptional water beading. The kit offers enough product to do two coats on the average car and is said to last about a year. Meguiar's claims it provides similar benefits and shine to a professionally-applied ceramic coating.
Meguiar's also announced changes to the polymer compounds in its popular Ultimate line of wax products as well as a new tire-shine foam spray and the introduction of a new snow foam soap product for those who use foam cannons. The company has no plans yet to introduce a foam cannon tool of its own, but says its liquid soap product is compatible with foam cannons from other car care brands.
Both Meguiar's and competitor Chemical Guys have told C/D that they've experienced increases in sales and interest in DIY car care products this year as car enthusiasts like us have been homebound due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Not only is car detailing a great way to kill time until we can get back to track days and in-person Cars and Coffee events, doing car care at home is cheaper than hiring a professional detailer.
